The end of the Second World War in 1945 saw the emergence of the United States as the world’s dominant superpower which it has maintained for the last 78 years.
The dollar is the currency of the world and Hollywood has been used as a soft power cultural propagandist tool that has greatly done a lot of public relations for Uncle Sam as she is fondly called.
Its elections are keenly followed all over the world as policies made in Washington DC either via the White House or Congress make the world catch a cold.
The country will go to the polls in 2024 which is around the corner and many names have been thrown up in the two dominant political parties – Republicans and Democrats. The current incumbent, Joe Biden is up for re-election and he faces one of the lowest approval ratings ever in the history of American electoral politics thereby implying that he is extremely unpopular.
However, popularity doesn’t necessarily win elections in America. If in doubt ask George Bush Sr who was very popular having successfully prosecuted the Gulf War in Iraq only to be dislodged in 1992 by the then youthful Bill Clinton who was a largely unknown Governor of the backward State of Arkansas running under the slogan ‘It’s the economy, stupid!’
Ron De Santis came to American consciousness for his conservative and pro-life views and actions as the Governor of Florida. The former Naval officer educated at two Ivy Leagues – Yale and Harvard, has formally announced his intention to succeed Biden.
He said: “I stand for a culture of life and in Florida the protection for unborn babies starts when there is detectable heartbeat,” he said. “And now there are exceptions for rape, incest life of the mother, victims of human trafficking and all that. And that was important to a lot of our legislators and people in Florida.”
He said that passing the Florida heartbeat law to legally protect unborn children “was something that was very, very important.”
“Iowa has similar, but you know, this is something that is a bottom up movement,” the governor added.
DeSantis said he understood the need to protect the Dobbs decision so states can protect unborn children from abortions.
“You’re not going to have Iowa and New Hampshire end up being the same. You’re not going to have Pennsylvania and Georgia being the same. So we understand that, but I think we want to protect the rights of states to be able to make those judgments particularly states that are protecting life,” he added.
The governor said he would fight Democrat bills to legalize abortions up to birth and reverse Dobbs.
“And so as president, you know, certainly we would fight back against the left trying to force abortion up until the moment of birth. And I think we’d be successful in being able to stop that,” he said.
“Look at the end of the day, you know, promoting a culture of life is really a bottom up movement. And I recognize that and I want to maintain these communities and states to be able to resolve in a favorable way. I think you probably will save more lives if you focus on a bottom up approach,” he concluded.
De Santis should be supported in cash and kind to get into the White House as the woke policies of this present administration have not only torn the fabric of America ironically built on religious liberty but have also negatively the rest of the world as the official position of the Democratic Party is the exportation of liberal policies including abortion and gay rights all over the world which is a gargantuan threat to Africa most especially given its status as the world’s most impoverished continent.
African Conservatives stand in sturdy solidarity with De Santis as he hopes to become the World’s most powerful man since his antecedents show that he would use power to ensure a better deal for not only Americans but for the rest of the world as genuine sustainable development – a much-abused buzzword can only take place on the back of conservative or pro-life ideology.
I sincerely hope that congratulations to him would be in order next year!

Support Project for Human Development’s Pro-Life Media Agenda
It is no news that most African nations have bravely pushed back against the liberal agenda of the West to foist the destructive agenda on hitherto Sovereign African nations through their local legislatures.
What is unknown to most Africans is the surreptitious hijacking of the soul of the African media to aggressively push this nauseating culture of death preying on the ignorance of many Africans on noble pro-life issues.
It is therefore imperative for African Conservatives/Pro-Lifers to control the media space and positively use it to shape local public opinion.
