I fulfilled my patriotic duty & hand delivered my ballot today ~ I voted!
I want the Revolution to begin! There should be nothing close about this election. Good God! How bad do things have to get before people embrace change? Really, I hope for a resounding landslide win for Obama.
It feels like a relief actually, I don't need to hear anymore from the candidates, especially coming on the heels of the irresponsible spending spree of RNC money. Which really only proves you can put fancy clothes on a candidate, but it will NOT make them smarter. Enough!
Enough of all of it! The prejudice, lies, hatemongering, slander, human rights abuses, environmental irresponsibility, wars for profit, ignoring the needs of the masses, and all the other abuses of power and money. Enough!!!!
Oregonians had quite the task this year, having to endure a hot Senate race, looking to replace one Republican Gordon Smith. His ads have been nasty and flooded the airwaves for months. Gordon, you lost me when you did the grandstand speech about how you could no longer support an illegal and immoral war, and proceeded to fund every additional billion of dollars Bush asked for war. No Sir! You need to step down.
We also had two volumes of ballot measures. Volume One: 155 pages, Volume Two: 45 pages.
Thankfully, the League of Women Voters & another Progressive paper narrowed it down.
The fricking ballot was so big it requires a 59 cent stamp. At first the county said ballots with insufficient postage would be returned.... but the next day they announced they would cover the cost. Voters can hand deliver their ballots as well.
Anyway~ I am voting for the Revolution..... for That One.... for a different direction.
I have always contended, when the question of experience surfaced with Obama, if Experience is what we have in the White House right now, I'll take inexperience any day.
But I don't believe Obama lacks in all the things that matter. A calm disposition. An intelligent mind. A conviction that things can not be done the same way, that we must do things differently. Education in foreign affairs (Political Science) , and the Constitution. He understands the value of education, and how funding it is good for the Country. Obama is our best hope to turn the tides on the worst period and presidency in American history.
Now it's time for you & me--- Got a Revolution?
