I have started this thread on INTJ forum and I am interested what will I get here for posting this. I am not hostile I just want to know what people here think about it.
I am not from US so I must ask you this. (I am from Europe)
I observe geopolitical scene so I am not amateur in things like this.
Also I want to know what American voters (others are welcome) think about this.By elections I mean current ones.
I see that all around the world elections in USA are very popular topic and many Americans treat that elections like a salvation.
My question is - why?
I ask why, because elections will not change many government officials plus election will not change officials in banks and stock markets as well as people who run big business.
1. So my point is if this administration is not able to find solution why next one could.
To strengthen my point: people from large companies and stock markets always have some idea how to "repair" economy and what laws and regulations should be created to insure recovery.
But if that mechanism failed in recent years I doubt that it is because current administration is ignoring advices. Of course they are ignoring some advices but they cant ignore many of them and hope to stay in position.
If you elect another president it does not matter because again you have same people in same places whit same thinking and situation which is heritage from last administration (read: same trends).Only thing what changes are those few people who stand in front of the camera to announce something.
2. On international level position of USA has weaken drastically.
I think that many Americans still think that world looks more or less like 10 years ago but that is far from truth.
South America is merging just to stop influence of USA in the region.
Middle east hates USA (for obvious reasons)
China and India want to become new promised lands.
(read: economical domination)
Russia not only that it succeed in recovery but it is for the first time has stabile economy. Which is then used to build next generation of military hardware .
EU in recent years started to invest large amount of money in high technology and advanced education hoping to have a last laugh.
My point is that if you want to have things as they were. USA will have to
triumph against all opponents in their specialty.
And that is very unlikely if we take current situation as starting point.
So the only options for USA are to fall apart totally or to become average players whit well balanced strengths in this game .
But there is no way others will allow USA to get advantage of 5 steps again.
3. As student of geology I keep an eye on the oil industry and global warming which is in my field of interest for years but I will skip those arguments because I dont want to kill reader whit too much information.
This elections are not useless when it comes to democracy and constitutional law but beside that it looks to me that this is precisely that case.
Maybe my memory is wholly wrong but few years back democrats announce big change when they have won last elections for congress.
But nothing happened.That is probably because USA is no longer in control of the world .
I am asking all of this because everybody are so excited about this and I dont see why.
So do I have a gap in my information bank or all of this is just a show whit principle: hope is always dying last.
