Obama does not care that his policies may hurt this country in the ways in which his opposition warn. He believes he will make this a better country. He sees himself as a world citizen and he believes virtually all of the problems here and throughout the world are because of the power and influence wielded by this country. That as a consequence of the unequal distribution of wealth within this country and throughout the world.. He would rather an economically poor socialist America than an economically powerful capitalist America.
