Martin O’Malley served more than half a dozen years as Governor of Maryland. Today he is getting ready to proclaim from the rostrum in Baltimore, the place he was Mayor of, his candidacy for presidential bid in 2016. O’Malley is riding on a Democratic ticket in the footsteps of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. The man has poise, dignity and massive support in many states.
In New Hampshire, recently, O’Malley said that he would tell the public his decision about participation in the presidential race soon enough. O’Malley is to further inform his eager contributors and enthusiastic voters regarding his take on the matter. If appearances are anything to go by, all the signs of the dude entering the race are there indeed. Recruitment of staff for his campaign is one indicator of where he is headed.
O’Malley is also to hold parleys with his vote bank members in the Democratic suburbia of Washington D.C. In the Big Apple he met with several top notch liberals and people active in politics. He is all set to promote himself as the “un homme” who will take on the likes of that giantess, Hillary Clinton. His anti-Asia-Pacific Free Trade Deal stance might just land him in the White House in the end.
This here is one concerned and creative individual who has it in him to change the landscape and mindscape of America for the better. He is especially worried about inner city poverty and dilapidation and wants an end to the “mentality of scarcity” that is so prevalent in the land that it has become a mindset of sorts.
He also believes that the Democrats have lost a vital chance at alleviating the nation’s miseries. They ought to have shown greater concern as liberals and activists in relieving the mass destitution that had overtaken the underclass of the United States. O’Malley referred to the recent agitation that had occurred in Baltimore.
He said that when you have whole communities of poor and down-and-out people whom the national leaders were ignoring, such riots were to be expected. The economy was not catering to these famished and frustrated souls who were human beings like the rest of the rich and middle class people. The sense of injustice and degradation had reached a point where the scene was worse than a decade ago. This had to change, said O’Malley, and he may well be right on this matter.
