I’m not going to waste my time arguing why every single
American ought to be voting for Barack Obama in 2008. I think the choice is so entirely clear that,
There was a time, between the year 2000 and 2005, when I
felt it was every thinking-person’s responsibility to fight the propaganda,
nationalism, and the big lies put forth by our Corporate-controlled
government. In doing so, my hope was
that we would one day have a clear choice...a Party and a Presidential Candidate
more-or-less funded by the people who would actually bring about the changes so
obviously needed (developing alternative energy, ending the Iraq War, paying
down the national debt, healthcare for all, improved educational opportunities,
etc.). My dream was that, if only there
was such a Party, such a politician, and if the media was somehow forced to
treat that person in a more-or-less fair way, then the people would see what
has been lacking all along and would find it in themselves do the rest – to
make the right choice.
In my wildest dreams, I never imagined we’d be looking at this reality by 2008. Barack Obama is that person and the Democratic Party is becoming that party. What I’m saying is no secret. By now every person in the modern world has had more than enough opportunity to see who Obama is in contrast to John McCain. Furthermore, every American has had 7 years to see exactly what the Republican Party is…to see and feel the direction the world is going under its policies.
