Back in early November I decided to support Barack Obama for the 2008 United States Presidential election. Since I’m not allowed to vote in the United States, I might as well reach out to my 4 avid blog readers instead, and maybe 3 out of those 4 people will reach out to 4 of their friends, and they will reach out to their friends, and from the Urban Country, we will expand to millions.
If you haven’t seen the Obama “Yes we can” video yet, I urge you to watch it. The fresh new energy and hope that Obama brings is inspirational to me, and I can see a glimmer of hope for a new America. 2008 will be the end of a sad Administration that has resorted to sending “rebate” checks to 130 million American taxpayers in the hopes of stimulating a faltering economy after the sub-prime mortgage scandal (Yes, scandal might be a little harshly worded, but that’s essentially what it is). In the coming months I’ll be putting together a list of all of the events that have happened under the Bush Administration’s watch that has made the world a crappier place for everyone.
I’m also planning to throw a huge party in November when Obama is elected in. Watch the “Yes we can” video:
