Anti-Politics

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!)


Go Obama!

Yippee! Of course, I am a huge fan, so I am very excited to welcome you to the club. And I agree - the most important thing is that we don't end up with McCain.

I have deleted your message because it was idiotic, immature and full of unnecessary racial slurs. And before you post a rebuttal...I know that this is America and we all have the right to free speech. However, what you posted blurs the borders of a "hate crime" and I will not have that trash on my blog. So...it IS America...but this is my blog and you are not welcome here. So please don't waste your time leaving me any other posts as I will delete them all........you stupid asshole.

Ok "Dave" ------- I deleted your comment here, but you pissed me off to the point that I put your comment in my next post for all to read.....so if your back...please read the next post, and please, feel free to grow some nuts and put a link to your own blog so that we can all be enlightened by your closed-minded thinking.

As a Canadian, I don't get to vote in American politics,but, because what happens in the US affects us, Canadians tend to follow American politics. I would love to be able to vote for Obama, if he doesn't become the next president, I feel that the states economy will crumble even more.
