Could Barack Obama (or someone similar) be decieving us?
He gathered the entire population into one movement, applied a catchy slogan and promised to help a country that would be willing to accept almost anything in its present state. Many of his future policies seem “too-good-to-be-true” and would require a shitload of dedication, which is very hard to come across these days. What if he was actually evil, and this is just a persona?
This reminds me of a discussion I had in class about Nelson Mandela. He pardoned all of his friends who fought against the British and who were terrorists (and by today’s standards are terrorists) and appointed them to his cabinet. He offered the people hope and the people were willing to accept almost any solution. What if he actually had a secret agenda?
I’m just trying to be the devil’s advocate for a second and show the other side of things.
