Our Future Is Not Doom And Gloom

875 words - 4 pages

Chicago, Illinois - the democratic city where current president of the United States, Barack Obama, was put onto the map of America’s future. Earlier this month, while I was walking through the busy streets of downtown Chicago, I heard multiple remarks about our president being spoken. Some negative, but mostly positive. Some citizens believe that Obama is ruining our nation’s future, but in all honesty, there is no other nation that is ready to take over America’s superpower.

If he needs strength in math and science, they will advertise those openings in the trade magazines and hire accordingly. America has a good grasp on business opportunities and there are more than enough students majoring in finance and business administration to take place of those who retire.
In addition to the advancement in education is America’s advancement in technology. Take note in how quickly the markets anticipate some new electronic, such as a new iPhone or a new computer. Ten years ago people had a separate landline, GPS, computer, television, and camera. These days, we have all of those electronics fit into one so small that a single person can hold it with one hand. America is still the trend setter for what the rest of the world wants and needs. For example, in Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, and Egypt, although the people do not have potable water or...
