A Sharon in the future of American Politics

Reader comment on item: [After Sharon:] Israeli Politics Will Revert to Its Past

Submitted by Thomas Earl Cannady (United States), Jan 9, 2006 at 05:53

The untimely end of Ariel Sharon's political career has me thinking, what does this mean for America?

I have not been a fan of Ariel Sharon in the past and I have not paid attention to world politics and that is about to change. This man evolved into a great leader for his country and Israel needs what he is doing to continue. I would like to see what he did for Israel happen in the United States. We need to move past the current gridlock and look for a national leader with vision to lead us out of this state of decline. Our President is not up to the task of upgrading the supreme court, Congress is out of control and the governors have lost steam. There is no one " of greatness" leading either party now and I do not know if we have anyone who can step up and take charge. I see some promise in Virginia and the south looks to move ahead. California is in decline and Texas and New York are fading fast. I ask the question are we to become a country led by racists from England who do not seem to like nice women? Are we going to let Mexico turn against us and continue to let Canada nuture those who hate us? We in America have created this climate so we had better wake up and see what we can do to change things.
