I am the most NON political person that you will EVER meet. However, this year, when I realized that the United States of America could have a REAL change....a change from the past couple hundred years of leadership by straight, white, over 50 years of age, men...I did get a little excited to think that we could actually leap into the 21st Century open-minded thinking and have either a woman or an Africian-American male as president. How awesome is that?
So....as the most non-political person you'll ever meet.....I did take it upon myself to read through both Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama's websites and glance through their "issues" sections to see what each had to offer. (I have linked them both if you are intrested in looking at them). You know you can't tell anything from commercials on TV...they're all the same - stating basically "I'm good and my opponent is bad." Geez...save your money. But anyway, their websites have some great info on them.
Honestly, I still didn't know who I was going to vote for before tonight. I am going to vote for sure however, only because I feel that this year could be the year that we make a REAL change in this country (......that is as long as we keep John McCain out of office......seeing as how he would just be a repeat of what we have already had plenty of). ----I've never really cared in past elections who won...I guess I figured they were all the same.
So, I'm happy to say that after looking through both websites that I am planning on voting for Barack Obama. His blueprint for change as well as all of this thoughts and ideas on everything from healthcare to the environment seem so well thought out and detailed, I was completely impressed. I feel like this is someone who could really take charge and make some real changes....not just the same old thing again.
I'm most excited and I hope Barack Obama wins (it's only too bad that Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton are both Democrat....wouldn't that be something if they were running against each other in November and the USA had no choice but to have either a woman or an African-American as president! That would be awesome!)
