President Barack Obama took office under extremely difficult financial and political circumstances characterized by the USA-originated global financial crisis and the Republican Congress obstructionism. However, the Obama Administration managed to prevent worst things from happening. Because of the President's great leadership qualities - confidence, calmness, and proven ground - he accomplished many important things for the American people. For example, "Obamacare," the rescue of the American Automobile Industry, the Wall Street Reform, the killing of Osama bin Laden, etc. RE-ELECTING PRESIDENT OBAMA is a memorandum through which a newly naturalized American and first-time voter urges other naturalized citizens, first-time voters, Independents, Undecided Voters, and diversity-loving Americans to reject 'birtherism', vote for President Barack obama's Second Term, and move USA and the world forward.
After my first and only vote in an undemocratic presidential election in my country of birth, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), formerly Zaire, I migrated to Europe and the United States of America, where I spent most of my adult life without ever voting in any political elections again. 'Obamaenon', or the Obama Phenomenon is the main reason why I finally decided to become a U.S. citizen in January 2012. Now armed with a Certificate of U.S. Citizenship and a Voter Notification Card, I am fired up and ready to cast the second vote of my life. It will be my first vote as an American to re-elect President Obama in a truly democratic election. Obama's epic election victory in November 2008 and his presidency are the true meanings of "Change We Can Believe in," Hope, and the American Promise. Under extremely difficult circumstances characterized by the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, obstructionism, "Hell No You Can't," and "Do Nothing" Republican Congress, President Obama has consistently displayed some of the great leadership qualities the USA and the world need: confidence, calm, and proven ground. Despite the Republican Congress obstructionism, President Obama's accomplishments are very impressive and amazing. For example, the health care reform ('Obamacare'), Wall Street Reform, Rebuilding of the American Auto Industry, the killing of America's number one enemy, Osama bin Laden, the New START, etc. He deserves a second term to finish what he started. His progressive and well-balanced policies will prevent another U.S.-originated global financial crisis. His re-election will restore fairness, keep us united, stronger, healthier, and safer. RE-ELECTING PRESIDENT OBAMA is a memorandum to my fellow naturalized Americans and first-time voters as well as Independents, Undecided Voters, and diversity-loving Americans to reject 'birtherism', re-elect President Barack Obama and move the USA and the world forward.
