Election rant..

okee.. i posted this on a bulletin on myspace as well. but here is what i feel:

i don't care if you guys hate me about who i'm voting for or why.
i have an opinion, just like you,
and i vote for my reasons and what i believe,
not because everyone else is voting for Obama.

1. everyone is saying "oh, Obama is gonna get assassinated once he's President"..
okay.. yeah, i know there are A LOT of people who are racists and don't want an African American as the next President.. but i seriously doubt he'll be assassinated.
even if McCain becomes president, what if he gets a heart attack of old age and dies? then we're stuck with fucking Palin as President.. no thank you. i mean, she's not a very good example, teenage daughter and she has her own child at 40? 45? or whatever.
i mean, any President has the possibility of being assassinated. but i really don't think it'll happen.

2. Change.. Obama is for Change, right? i don't think McCain has said anything about "change" if he wants to continue this war in Iraq.. it doesn't sound like anything will change.. Obama wants to pull the troops out of Iraq.. that's change! change in what we're facing.. we should have never gone into Iraq and started this war. change in this financial issue.. i know i don't remember every detail in their arguments or whatever.. but McCain's $5,000 medicare bullshit won't do any good.
and i know every President promises "change".. but i haven't seen or heard anything about change from McCain. you may disagree, agree, whatever.. i may be naive, i guess.. but this is what i believe.

3. THIS election is the MOST important election in the history of the United States.. whoever becomes President it will affect our lives and our future, i guarantee it.
have you heard about this financial issue?! have you seen how far the stocks are going down?
i mean, is you family being affected at all?!
i know mine is.. it's horrible.. all families are experiencing this crunch, it's everywhere you go! the malls aren't that busy and businesses aren't doing that great cuz people have no money to spend! you wanna know why? it's because the job cuts and money is low as fuck. there are so many people out of work and it's hard to even get through a month.
you know how much money this war has cost us?!
BILLIONS!! that's where the money has gone to..
the fucking war, thanks to Bush.
if McCain is elected President, it'll just continue and become TRILLIONS of dollars that we don't have.. i mean the fucking "bailout" is $700 trillion, close to what we've spent on this war. it's ridiculous.
McCain is just a mini-me of Bush and we don't need that.
i mean, McCain's "plans" or whatever are all screwed.

also, CHANGE = not continuing with ignorant Presidents and get out of this Republican state that we are in.. bring on the Democratic views and plans and what they call change.. at least we have hope in Obama, not just because he wants "CHANGE" but what he stands in and what he wants to do as President, bring it on.

i mean.. honestly, i never thought i'd be all up in arms with voting.. but seeing my family struggle and other families struggle, it brings tears to my eyes. that Bush could start something that has brought everyone, everything, the USA down into the ground.
do you remember when everyone wasn't struggling? yeah that was at least 8 years ago.
i mean, if you haven't heard about this story.. maybe you or haven't..
but a man in LA killed his family in their sleep.. his wife and kids.. one of 19 years old because he lost everything. everything he owned. the stocks he invested in. everything! it's sad that it had to come to that, but it's what families are struggling with. i mean, 19 years old killed by his or her dad.. it's like you or me dying because of the family's financial situation.. all because of Bush and this war and what he's done.. and McCain will just continue in the same path that Bush is going in. we don't need that.. we need a change in paths who is Obama.. to many of you it may be unfortunate.. but we need change in what this is costing us, as Americans, and families.

once again.. i don't care if you agree or disagree.. hate me or love me.
i am an individual, and a citizen of the United States of America,
stating what I believe, my opinion.
naive or not.. Obama '08. <3
