I make no bones about it, I am voting Obama, and I want you to do the same. To really get into it, I personally think that the current political system only represents the 25% of Americans on the left and the 25% on the right; the 50% majority in the middle do not have a good candidate or party. I am personally for:
My list goes on, but these are the big issues. And honestly, neither candidate really feeds all of those needs. Obama will do some things that I will not like, if elected. But of the two choices, he is consistently proving to be the better option. If for no other reason, look at how these two men are running their campaigns. Obama has stayed calm and cool, when on the attack he has remained respectful. McCain has dragged his campaign down into the muck, with lies, half-truths, and repeated ugly attacks. His surrogates have incited hatred and fear all up and down the Nation, preying on the American fear of Terrorism instead of offering hope. The picture below was actually released on an official GOP site in California:
Honestly, these are intensely dangerous times; our economy will probably not survive this collapse. I say this because I do not think the system itself is viable- Wall Street controls our entire country, and they have created a house of cards filled with imaginary ways of making profit. And the banks are saying thanks for the cash, but we probably won’t be using it, as sitting on it will serve our interests better. We need hope, not hate. This crisis will not be averted by flexing our might, it is our financial Cuban Missile Crisis (not, as Buffet said, Pearl Harbor), and we need a calm, steady, hopeful hand at the helm. Not a warmonger and someone who just cannot wait for the world to be destroyed. Please dear god, I’m not ready for the end of days. Vote hope, not hate in ’08.
