The President can give prisoners pardons. What has come to mind is President Obama needs many more troops prepared, trained and ready to deploy to the Afgan conflict. Many whites will not, and have said they will not sign up, nor support Obama. They have said the will not join the military while he is President. How many readers of this post between the age of 18-40 would sign up to support the President? If you like. Or post and speak on this. Now here is why I wanted to bring this matter up. Soldiers are needed to help this President. Do you think Obama would be viewed badly? Or should he care Bush and many Presidents in the past.. have pardened criminals top level ( wealthy ) mess up who robbed and did wrong. If he took all locked up people. Serving 3 to five years for Grand Auto Theft Cases and gave those men Amnesty. If they productively enlist, serve at least three years in service of their country. These men would have clean records and would no longer be held back because of a criminal record past. ie.. chance at a job, and military benefits like medical, education, and stuff. What this would do while Obama is President is Free the ENSLAVED.. many of the poor from the prison system of America.. and give who desire to start over. A fresh start. Do you think the president should consider this? I DO!
