The swooning frenzy over Barack Obama as President of the United States is an artificially created absurd wave of self-deception. His cult following is bereft of reason and devoid of facts. He is a celebrity in the mold of an intelligent, articulate Paris Hilton. In no way does he resemble a statesman. Each day in the age of Obama takes us further into lawlessness, situational constitutionalism and institutional derangement. We are turning into a banana republic where the "rule of law" is replaced by "the tyranny of the majority". The political machination of Liberals, in the name of an economic recession that they are manipulating is undermining our founding principles. President Obama is accumulating massive power in Washington justified by the need to save the nation with a whirlwind of activity. He is recklessly over compensating, throwing trillions of dollars around for a quick fix which will be a millstone around the necks of future generations. He then dishonestly claims that the USA will arise stronger than before. When traveling abroad, President Obama has an arrogant humility. He portrays a proud but flawed United States, using a refrain of past mistakes of his predecessor to generate personal popularity. He talks about the nation's darker periods of slavery and repression and its past sanction of torture that he has ended. Chicago Politics have come to the White House. No president in the past 40 years has done more to polarize America so much, so quickly. Afghanistan is sliding back to its pre-9/11 days that allowed the country to become a safe haven for al-Qaeda leaders plotting terrorist attacks. Obama's soft shoe confusion will also be a disaster in neighboring Pakistan where nuclear bomb technology is available.

After forced migration to a country where immigrants form an ethnic majority, why do some individuals support exclusivist and nationalist political parties while others do not? Based on extensive interviews and an original survey of 1,200 local Serbs and ethnic Serbian refugees fleeing violent conflict in Bosnia and Croatia, The Politics of Social Ties argues that those immigrants who form close interpersonal networks with others who share their experiences, such as the loss of family, friends, and home, in addition to the memory of ethnic violence from past wars, are more likely to vote for nationalist parties. Any political mobilization occurring within these interpersonal networks is not strategic, rather, individuals engage in political discussion with people who have a greater capacity for mutual empathy over the course of discussing other daily concerns. This book adds the dimension of ethnic identity to the analysis of individual political behavior, without treating ethnic groups as homogeneous social categories. It adds valuable insight to the existing literature on political behavior by emphasizing the role of social ties among individuals.
