Yes we can!

I am so excited about Obama becoming our next president. I am seeing people come around to supporting him now that they realize how utterly stupid it would be to back McCain. Although there are still a few idiots out there who are making the case against Obama with dumb reasons. This morning as I was listening to Russ Parr, this guy called in and said he was going to vote for McCain because having a black man in the white house would ruin our economy. WTF?! Isn't our economy pretty much shit right now? And last I checked a black man was not currently in the white house. Where did this guy get this idea? He later admitted that he's just getting into politics and really doesn't know much about the current state of the government. Or how about the people who are shallow enough to let some moral issues such as gay marriage and abortion be the only reason they pick a candidate. I personally think that these issues are not relevant to how the country is ran. A decision to love someone or what a woman does with her body are personal matters. Politicians know that these issues touch the heart, so they use them to rope in voters who don't truly look at the whole picture.

People: Do not be blinded by small distractions. See the bigger picture, think of our futures! If you don't already have children, chances are you will within 10 years. What kind of country and world do you want your family to inherit? One that has a depleted environment, ongoing wars, poor economy, faltering job market, and filthy rich oil companies? And all that you will be able to say is "At least those gays can't marry!" Yeah, that's really going to matter when you can't work, eat, or put gas in your car! Vote for change. Don't let people tell you that Obama's ideas are impossible.
