Where are we heading? What is our future? - Paul Chehade:.
(1888PressRelease) Our nation has been traditionally headed by two political groups, the
Democrats and the Republicans. In light of this political failure, what will the future bring to the
American people and coming generations? What are the expectations to live a life with dignity
(1888PressRelease) The Democrats and the Republicans have promised, politically and publicly,
to serve the nation for decades, but the reality is that both of them after consecutive failures, only
prove that they serve the powerful economic groups that for generations have drained the
economy of our nation and have left our citizens in the most precarious and fragile economic
situation in the American history.
In light of this political failure, what will the future bring to the American people and coming
generations? What are the expectations to live a life with dignity and hope.
Without desire to deepen into the subject I would like to mention the pillars for the growth and
strengthening of our society which are essential for the development of every human being:
Food, health, housing and education.
In light of the economic crisis that our nation is confronting, mainly due to the bad
administration of the last two governments, still today our President Obama is neglecting the
fundamental issue of providing basic food supplies for the American people, especially for our
children, the future of our nation, that are the most affected in this national crisis. We need to
understand that the cost of food has increased almost 50 % in many cases and in other cases up
to 100% in the last years. All of this without any real increase in salaries for the fortunate ones
that still have the opportunity to work, and without counting the millions of unemployed that are
suffering with anguish and despair because they have no means to cover the basic necessities for
In the health area, our government has approved a new health law that in reality does not favor
the majority of our citizens; the truth is that the working force of our nation, which is the middle
class, is the one being punished with this law. As time has gone by, health for the inhabitants of
our nation has become an unattainable luxury for the common citizens that do not count with the
minimum economic means to afford the inflated costs of hospitals and medicines.
Regarding housing, it is a common knowledge that more than 1 million people will lose their
homes this year, again as a consequence of the economic crisis provoked by the bad
administration of our national resources. Under these conditions it will be even more difficult to
Regarding education, consider that every human being requires the minimum conditions to
develop, like been properly feed and live in the proper environment to have good health and a
decent place to live in order to facilitate a good education. All these aspects are basic and
essential for a good educative and professional formation.
I would like to mention that due to the reduction in the Budget, courses that are in the annual
school system are being eliminated, as well as many educational centers are starting to reduce the
number of teachers and personnel because they claim don't have enough economic resources.
All the aspects mentioned are fundamental for any society to develop properly and it is very sad
to see our nation that has always been the world's example, submerge in this deep economic,
social, moral and cultural crisis. We ask ourselves, what is our future, where we are heading if
the leaders elected have not provided any real solution nor have they implemented any concrete
measures to improve the quality of life in this country? Each day we see less and less
opportunities for the new generations and the basic elements to live are almost inexistent. We
now find ourselves in an uncertain future where our values are at high risk, values that were the
fundamentals of our nation.
As an example of the lack of ethics during the year 2010 in order to cover up the government
deficiencies and the lack of decision of our government officials, they have played with the
sentiments and necessities of our citizens, thinking that we do not know better, blaming the less
fortunate, like the immigrants and other minorities, pretending to distract our attention from the
real causes of the bad administration of our politicians who are the only ones to blame for the
shortcomings that we are now facing. I wonder, why do we need to suffer and endure the
consequences derived from the incapacity of our elected officials?
The true solution to the majority of our problems could be that our politicians would take real
conscience that their salaries are paid by the people and should use all their time and energy to
work for the benefit of all us, the people, and not for the groups that finance their electoral
Keep always in mind that the power comes from the people and the government belongs to the
people and that the President of our nation should serve every citizen without distinction of race,
color or religion.
Equally, don't ever forget that the White House represents the liberty and democracy of our
nation, that was built by Afro-Americans like many of the houses and buildings were you live
have been built by immigrants with or without documents, contributing to the development of
this great nation.
With this I want to say that it is fundamental and an obligation that our government officials
provide a worthy life to all the citizens of this great nation, without discriminating because
everybody including the immigrants has contributed to the formation of our nation.
It is a lack of respect to the human intelligence and immoral to use the suffering of our people for
electoral purposes, promising many things that will never be fulfilled. This is a direct treason to
the voters and the nation that has believed in them and see their hopes and dreams get shattered
by the unfulfilled promises.
In our nation we must require that all the citizens supervise the measures and actions taken by
our elected officials and the government in general, that way we will prevent our nation from
heading toward the cliff, reason why I repeat the question " Were are we heading?"
