Will Obama's Stimulus Bill Work?

Obama signs Stimulus

On Feb. 17th, President Barack Obama signed a $787 billion stimulus bill to rescue this country from its catastrophic economic downfall. Will it work? Is it too late? Is it enough?

I think the worse is yet to come. A bandage will not help heal a massive wound like the one this Nation has. For states, the drowning will have in most cases occurred way before the trickle down. In my opinion, the stimulus bill is not drastic enough and will not drastically help the people who brought about the Presidency for Barack Obama. It's another elaborate scene of 'let's look like we are trying to do something for the people' as usual. A scene that this country has seen many times over with many presidents.

President Barack Obama must remember that he came about at an age where every factor that needed to be there for him to win was there. Is he qualified to lead this nation? Of course, he is extremely qualified and able to lead. The issue is not that of qualifications, the issue is that of a Nation's dynamics. The timing was just right! The technology was just right! We as a Nation evolved into minds that became barrier free. The social media shaped our lives and brought in a new leader for a new time. The dinosaurs unable to interact or understand this field will with time be voiceless. The issue left now is will this stimulus help the minds that brought about this new era? I think that we as a people have to take more responsibility of our own destiny. We are still looking for leaders to bring about change and this in the end will disappoint Obama's followers.

'Barack Obama winning the Presidency was this Country' s Revolution!
Any stimulus bill set forth must come with the same audacity and severity to save this Nation:
It must be revolutionary!'
