I bet you’ve noticed the prices at the pump! It’s pretty crazy.  Two days ago I heard an analyst on 680 News saying that there was no reason for gas prices to have escalated at the pump.  He’s got me all fired up – I don’t believe the guy knows what’s going on in the world.

The truth is, none of the contenders are favourites.  No one fits the bill.  No one has the chrismatic personality and the vision that can lead the US back to glory.  Sadly, this up coming election will determine the fate of the US economy and that of it's people, and my crystal ball doesn't seem to be lighting up at the prospect!  I believe that most of the countries around the globe are facing the same issue.  The leadership of the US is one of the most important ingredients to it's economic recovery, not because of what the leader can do, but because of the emotions of the US public.  The US public has a long history of overcoming the worst of things with positive emotion and I believe that they can do so again.  I hope and pray that they will, because the well-being of the rest of the world is so closely linked to their fate.
