The Race For The Future

I do believe that most of us, on some level, have an interest in politics. I am not one to get to involved in deep political discussions, for various reasons. I do have my opinions but I choose to share them with a select few.

I am curious about two current areas of polictics and how history will view them. The first is President Obama’s two terms in office. Time will be the true test of his presidency.  The second is the current race to the White House. Of the current front runners two of them are rather unconventional. The other one, if elected, will make history. The ever growing presence of social media and the various outlets for 24/7 news have helped to foster a very spirited, amusing and at times outlandish race. Boring is not a word that one would use to describe this time or this race.

Looking back, what will future generations have to say about the this time period, (2008 -2016), political and socially. Take a look around, there is a lot happening in this country right now. I believe that even those who are not generally involved in politics are following the current race. Regardless of who gets elected into the Oval Office, one thing is certain, changes are coming.

One thought on “The Race For The Future

  1. Nice post. I tend to think Obama will be remembered as a good president who had to contend with racism and reactionary obstacles to his success. As for this election, it’ll probably be a future TV series like the OJ trial in which we shake our heads.
