Wow. As funny as this is, I end up finding it very moving and extremely powerful. Great, great piece.
Am I the only one stunned by how little coverage the John McCain-lobbyists on the payroll story is getting? Come on people! This guy has been blabbing for years about how he will get rid of lobbyists influence in Washington and then has to spend a couple weeks firing a ton of staffers who work for lobbying firms that represent evil dictatorships, oil companies, etc. etc. etc. The list is extensive and very disturbing. Charles Black, David Crane, Mike Dennehy. Oh, how I love Google…and the truth.
I’m officially supporting Barack Obama.
I’ve held off on this for a long time because of my undying support of Ron Paul. I held off until it was absolutely, positively 100% sure that he could not win the nomination. I gave considerable money to the campaign, I plastered my car with bumper stickers, signs and magnets:
I strongly agree with Ron Paul’s stance on the war and I also agree that it is not our place to police the world and tell other countries they must have a Democracy. That being said, I have always been torn over Ron Paul’s healthcare policy. I am absolutely, whole-heartedly for Universal Healthcare. There is absolutely no reason that some people should be able to live longer and healthier than others simply because they have the money to prevent and treat illness. There is no excuse…end of story.
I will be redoing my car with Obama paraphernalia, though probably not to the same extent. If you haven’t read his stances on the issues, please do.
Honesty, Integrity, Hope, Understanding…this country is dying, literally unfortunately, for these. We’ve got a historical chance to make it happen. Please consider it.
