Little did we know that the Obama campaign crew thought the personality of Obama carried the day.
They thought that personality would soothe the frustrations of the people over the economic military coup that was plundering the American people's Treasury under the Bush II regime.
However, when the victorious Obama campaign arrived in D.C. they were given a compass with a "W" on every point.
Soon they evidently forgot the electorate who had elected them, and set off in a "W" direction.
They betrayed the soul of the people, continued on in those elitist policies that were plundering the Treasury, finally morphing even more of our money into MOMCOM money.
That is not a democracy, it is a demockcrazy, because they mock us with sophistry.
In Holland that is not happening because they have at least a democracy or better.
When the people of Holland reject a war it also brings down the government like we did, however, they do not Dr. Jekyll and Hyde their people. Very much unlike US, they still have a system of accountability with a spirit of honesty toward the people:
Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende said Sunday Dutch troops will begin leaving southern Afghanistan in August, since his caretaker government has no authority to accept a NATO request to stay on.(Huffington Post). Wow, it made me nostalgic to remember the beautiful America I once lived in, which had a government of, by, and for the people.
Speaking a day after his coalition government collapsed over the issue, Balkenende said the Netherlands will end its role in Uruzgan province, where 21 Dutch soldiers have been killed since the mission was first deployed in 2006.
"Our task as the lead nation ends in August this year," he said on Dutch television.
A marathon cabinet meeting that broke up before dawn Saturday ended with the walkout of the second largest party in the government, Labor, which accused the dominant Christian Democratic Alliance of reneging on a 2007 agreement to bring the troops home this year.
No wonder everyone has now gone off to look for America, but those who have that "W" compass will never get there.
