A reason to vote.

This is the last two months before the big election. Because of this, I felt inclined to throw caution to the wind and forget my principles to not talk politics. Now i don't make this decision lightly, usually politics is sacred ground that i tread lightly on so as to not lose any friends or make any enemies. i'm sure you can relate, we've all been burned by opening our mouths around the dinner table Sunday evening or in front of the life long friend we didn't know was a staunch believer in the opposite direction. Yes, I know you can think of at least one experience off the top of your head.
Well, I think this time around I need to take the risk and give a good mention to the way I am going to cast my lowly vote. Obama. Now if you were thinking the other way that is okay! I totally respect that and you don't even have to mention that you read this to me. We can go on in harmony, living in peace the next time we meet. No worries!
But before you grumble away ( or smile because you're in support too ) I urge you to spend 15 minutes of your life and watch one of his speeches. He is truly inspiring and I honestly feel he will be a great and monumental leader for the dark and difficult times that lie ahead. Just HAVE A LOOK, you owe it to yourself and your country to be well informed.

Props to you for being brave!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE politics. I read, watch, and listen to politics all the time, but I NEVER NEVER NEVER tell people my opinions.

I've been burned too bad.

Thanks for finding that youtube video! I have a short attention span so I don't watch videos longer than a couple of min. But this speech was well worth it!

Kudos to you for having the courage to take a stand! We are still debating about whether to vote for Mickey Mouse or not. We'll let you know. Maybe Donald Duck. :)
