Just Do It

Okay, last email here.

Hopefully I can make it count.

The topic for today is what are you afraid of?

I’ve had a lot of conversations with people who “don’t like either candidate” but are voting for McCain.

My question for them is — Why? What’s wrong with Barack Obama? Sometimes you don’t trust him, sometimes he’s not experienced enough, sometimes, you can’t really express it.

What has Obama ever done to break your trust? He has run an extraordinarily open and honest campaign. On experience, even if he truly was inexperienced (which he’s not), isn’t it about time that we move away from the political dynasties?

“I’m a uniter, not a divider.” This quote from George W. Bush is the most important difference, in my opinion, between the two candidates and their campaigns. While McCain and Palin have attacked, spreading lies (really. lies. Palin is a liar.), mistrust, doubt, and fear, Obama/Biden have been direct. They have sought to unite. They have plans.

After 8 years of neoconservative power, we have found ourselves in a downtrodden state. We’ve been at war. Many believe that we should never gone there to begin with. We’ve alienated allies. Our economy outlook is frightening. Jobs are moving overseas, or just going away. I believe that the administration of the last eight years has been a failure in nearly every way.

Obama/Biden have plans. And while they can’t please everyone, they’ll at least have respect. McCain’s plans are almost identical to what we’ve had over the last eight years.

What are you afraid of? Vote for change, and a united America. It really does matter.

While I’m at it, California friends please vote no on 8.
