to make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of (something) different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone.
If our Goverment was to remain on the same course as it is now would we end up in a similar world that Obama wishes to create? Certainly there are some differences between our current course and the one that Obama wishes to make, mainly time. Even with our current administration there are plans to withdraw from Iraq within the next few years. Under Obama, the withdraw will almost certainly move along faster, but the actual issue with our foreign policy will not be dealt with. Obama is clear that he wishes to maintain our relationship with Israel, which implies the continued aid from the United States. In the year 2007 the United States gave Israel $2.4 billion dollars in foreign aid, making it the top recipient, while Lebanon received only $52 million. The United States has military bases in over 130 countries around the world. the total cost of maintain such an enormous presence around the world was about 1 TRILLION dollars (excluding Iraq)!!! In short, we arrogantly make our the police of the world, while clearly showing favoritism to certain nations. Universal healthcare is another platform of change that is so popular these days. Our system has been set on a path for universal healthcare for decades. Whenever our system encounters a problem we simply make another bureaucratic device, only to ensure that the system will take longer, and become more likely to break down. If you have a machine that works and you continue to add more mechanisms to the machine to make it accomplish the same goal, you only add more possibilities for a malfunction. The so-called change candidate wishes to fix the system by adding more parts, which is the same thing we have been doing for decades. Government healthcare only creates red tape to keep doctors from doing their job. If truly private health care were to put in place, doctors jobs would be easier, and their fees would be smaller. McCain is not considered the change candidate because he is for the most part an extension on the current administration. Socialized medicine seems somewhat inevitable. Even if McCain were in office it seems that congress will force socialized medicine through. Also note that both candidates voted for the patriot act. Either way you vote this election you will end up with arrogant foreign policy, socialized medicine, and fewer personal liberties, thus neither candidate can claim to stand for true change when they both will simply proceed with big government, creating a police state. It is only a matter of time.

There is a new beverage gaining popularity in the South, especially Houston, called Drank. Not content with following the herd of energy drinks, Drank is the antithesis of such products, claiming to be “the anti-energy drink” whose slogan is “slow your roll.” This purple carbonated beverage is infused with melatonin, valerian root and rose hips which give it a sedating effect…
