Robert G - Politics Writer
|Star Rating||4 Stars|
Summary of Politics ExperienceRobert G has an avid interest in politics. He volunteered for the US Marines right out of high school. He was thrilled to serve, but became a conscientious objector when the US went to war in Viet Nam. While not against war per se, Robert felt America had no critical interest in Southeast Asia -- and no reason to add to the death toll in the region.
The Viet Nam War sparked Robert's interest in public policy. He saw how rich and influential corporations often shape and control policy. He observed how courageous leaders like John F Kennedy elevate America's image, and how corrupt politicians like Richard Nixon harm our nation.
Robert G feels that government at every level requires brilliant orators and legislators. The brightest men and women are needed to deal with challenging global and domestic crises that strike without letup.
Robert sees a need for policy writers, speech writers, and news writers who articulate ideas that inspire politicians and other world citizens to confront such issues as: climate change... nuclear disarmament... terrorism... international trade... green technology development... eradication of poverty... broader access to affordable college education... and broader access to affordable healthcare.
Utopia isn't possible, but a thriving, happy, and tolerant world community is. Robert believes politics is a shared responsibility of the human race -- and knows eloquent writing has a long history of driving political progress.
