this is my first post and I wanted to start with an email I sent to the so-called SuperDelegates of the democratic US party in order to convince them to vote for Barack Obama.
Hereafter you can find the link to the message board where you can write similar mail to the Super delegates.
The letter I sent to the Super delegates:
Dear Super delegates,
my name is Antonio Napoli. I was born in Salerno (south of Italy) in 1974.
I graduated in electrical engineering at the Politecnico of Torino, one of the best technical university in Italy, and got a PhD in the same field.
Currently I live in Munich (Germany) where I work with Nokia Siemens Networks as a R&D engineer.
During my studies I had the opportunity to travel around Europe to enlarge my technical knowledge; moreover my beautiful girlfriend comes from Taiwan; therefore, I believe I have the same degree of open-mindedness of the president candidate Mr. Barack Obama.
Although having a strong background in engineering, I have always had a particular interest in history, which later on became a passion for politics.
When you are interested either in modern history or in politics, you have to deal with the history of USA.
At the foundation of US as a country, it established one of the milestones of modern democracies with US constitution of 1787, which still represents one of the most advanced constitutions in the world.
US constitution, already in late eighteen century has introduced concepts as protecting the right to free exercise of religion and freedom of speech. In the following centuries US will strongly contribute to the recognition of the most important civil rights.
When I had my first approach to the study of history, the common impression about US was of a country fighting all-over the world for defending peace, democracy and human rights.
Later one, during my adolescence, I understood that the US government, in particular, after the assassination of the two Kennedy brothers, was just the speaker of enormous interests carried on for big corporations working on field of healthy care, weapon, oil, etc.
The president of USA, as we can easily read in officially documents, receives donation from such companies, and is than forced to satisfy their interests during his presidency.
Examples about this collusive pact are homogeneously spread over the past 40 years, with a small difference between the democrats candidates compared to the republicans.
Finally, something astonishing happens during the 2008 primary USA elections. Where an almost unknown senator, who has dedicated his life to defend and help poor people in his home town, strikes in the campaign and he candidates himself to become the next US president without receiving financing from the mentioned companies.
There are several original things in the proposal coming from Barack Obama, but in my opinion three of them are much more important than the others.
First, his program is entirely focused on peace. He often mentions that he will be a freedom president, rather than
a war one. I do not know the perception you have in USA concerning what the other countries think about yours, but if you travel out of USA you can clearly feel that the politics headed by the US administration (directly by the US government or indirectly by (for example) the International monetary found) do not have a such high reputation...US is perceived as the country that to pursue his unilateral politics will resort military action.
Second, Obama extensively characterized his program with solutions for education and health care for the US citizens. I would not underestimate Obama's proposal to provide all the students with 4000$/year provided that they will look after poor or handicap persons or in general they will work for the society. This is an astonishing way to increase the common sense of united society, and I would vote for Obama just because of this idea.
Last and the most important is that, neither the strong pharmaceutical industries nor the weapon companies nor the oil ones financed Barack Obama. He has not to account for something to anyone, except the US citizens who financed him with hundreds of thousand of donations. In other words: Barack Obama is free to fully accomplish his electoral program. This is the most astonishing and innovative aspect of the candidate Barack Obama!
I believe that the entire world needs a good government in USA, therefore the world needs Barack Obama.
Although I am not a US citizen, I care about what is going on in USA, therefore I strongly support the nomination of Barack Obama as candidate of the Democrats for the 2008 US presidency campaign.
