Back in 2008 I wrote an article in response to Barak Obama being elected as the 44th president of the United States, or as I like to refer to it; CEO of USA Inc. Eight years later “Yes We Can” likely has a whole different meaning for many folks on both the left and the right. I’ve reworked this article in context of where we are today and how different it seems things are, yet when we look below the surface, so much remains the same.
Flip on the news and you’ll see an announcer saying in a worried tone of voice: “We are headed for the fiscal cliff. We could soon be in a double-dip recession!” Images of people running and screaming as if being chased by Godzilla flash on the screen.
You can feel your chest start to tighten and you begin to wonder, if not go into a full blown anxiety attack, about what is going to happen if we do go over that cliff.
