Why I support Barack Obama, and my views on his policy

Last Thursday, I wrote an article on Barack Obama's (Democratic leadership candidate, U.S.) fundraising. Today, I am following that up with why I support Barack Obama. Let me give my reasons why:

1. Health Policy


"In the 2008 campaign, affordable, universal health care for every single American must not be a question of whether, it must be a question of how. We have the ideas, we have the resources, and we will have universal health care in this country by the end of the next president's first term."

– Barack Speech, January 2007
In his health platform, along with several other specific initiatives, Barack supports two central systems: universal healthcare and lowering drug costs.   Lowering drug costs is something that we haven't really accomplished as a country in Canada, but hopefully Barack, as president, could do just that.
While Barack's platform on universal healthcare is very loose, he does believe, as far as I know, that the U.S. should have a universal healthcare system like that of Canada (his platform would do a lot of public consultations).

2. Environment Policy


Just check this out for yourself (click on the link above). His environment program is classified under energy, and includes plans for hybrid cars, reduced energy use, and renewable fuels.

3. Overall Policy


Overall, his policy is well rounded and quite left, as far as America goes (although, I think the platform could be a bit more detailed). I would ask that you check out his whole platform, and see what you think.

4. Barack Himself


By just reading his bio on his website (click above), you can see why he would be an excellent president. The other, smaller factors are that he is not an oil typhoon, terribly rich, or anything like that, which would be a nice change for America. Also, he is an African-American (from what I heard, he is not pure African, though), which, too, would provide a different prospective for America, and would probably make a move more to the left.

Tomorrow, I will have the third and final installment on my 'mini-series' on Barack Obama: Why you should support him, and how.

Barack seemed like an intelligent and well composed guy. However during the Democratic debate two weeks back, he'd mentioned strengthening the borders with Canada as well!

Why?

The Speaker case. Mr. Speaker was carrying around TB, and avoided direct flights to the US, so he came into Canada, and returned to the states that way.

How was it our fault that the CDC - where Speaker's father works - failed to update the countries immediately about the nature of the threats this walking TB guy posed to others? Was Canada adequately informed about stopping Speaker? Can we be blamed if an American border guard let Speaker re-enter the US because he "looked okay"?

How about improving communication flow than making it harder for Canadians to go south?
