America the beautiful! You know her; all nations on the earth know her. She stands brave and proud in the world and represents justice, equality, liberty, and freedom. She lies between two oceans: the Atlantic and the Pacific and shares her Northern border with Canada. In the beginning she was alone except for the native Indians, wild animals, birds, and plants, and was unique to a new unexplored part of the earth.
I stood on Ellis Island and faced America’s New York Harbor. I saw the Statue of Liberty and I stared in awe at her and her crown. Her crown was closed to public entry since September 11, 2001, an event ordered by President George W. Bush. The crown was opened to the public again on July 4, 2009 by President Barack Obama, and 250 people visited the Statue of Liberty and her crown to celebrate her 233rd birthday. Once again I stand on Ellis Island. I face New York Harbor and I see the Statue of Liberty. I stare at her and her crown in awe and she welcomes me to my beloved country. The country has faced many dangers and has had many presidents through the years: They ranged from brave, strong, and constructive to mediocre, dry, and ineffective until Barack Hussein Obama became her 44th president and changed hope and change to fear and chaos and the American dream became the American nightmare. Become a free market warrior: Do not be silent and do not be scared. Unleash your voice and your vote. Stand up for your country. Remember the future favors the bold. Who is this young man, where did he come from, and where is he going? A handsome 6`2” lean frame with intellectual and orational abilities that brought him prominence and adoration describes the 44th president of the United States. Born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii, he connects with the people, white and black. His black father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., belonged to a tribe in Kenya on the East coast of Africa, and his white mother, Ann Dunlap, was born in Wichita, Kansas, a town in the United States. Barack’s parents separated when he was 2 years old and his father returned to Africa. When he was 10 years old his father came to the United States for Christmas and spent a few weeks with him. He returned to Africa and was killed in a car crash. In 1967 Barack’s mother married Lolo Soetoro from Indonesia. Barack and the family lived 4 years just outside of Jakarta. While chickens and ducks ran around the backyard and baby crocodiles swam in a fenced pond Barack cared for his pet ape named Tata.
