I know we've had our political spats from time to time, so lets have another round But seriously, this has to be one of the most important elections in my life time, and if nothing else, you should be informed about what the candidates really stand for and not be fooled by the misconceptions that are often spread. I go to buy pizza at the mall where I work, and the guy behind the counter is constantly talking about how Barack Obama is going to tax small businesses into oblivion. That's simply wrong. Likewise, much of the rhetoric that comes about about McCain isn't true either. While I am an Obama supporter, I certainly intend to watch McCain's speech at the RNC to hear first hand what he has to say. In the same vein, I encourage you all to listen first hand, with an open mind, to what Barack had to say last night. It's 45min or your life, that could change the direction of the country. Don't settle for some idiotic pundant's recap, watch it for yourself and draw your own conclusions. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZCrIeRkMhA Honestly, I find myself too cynical to believe he can actually win. The whole campaign is about hope, but I'm not sure I could really deal with losing if I actually began to believe he could win. p.s. I think McCain made one hell of a brilliant step picking Sarah Palin as his VP. Tricky little bastard, nice move.
