Hopefully by tomorrow night we will know the outcome of this election cycle, it has seemed to go on forever. By Wednesday morning we will/should know
what side has won and what formula that was used to bring themselves victory.
I asked my 11 year old who she wanted to win, she hesitated at first but I pushed and she told me she wanted Obama to win even though there were many
in her class that hated her for it. I then asked her why she wanted Obama to win, and she responded that McCain and Palin seemed angry when she heard
them speak, and Obama seemed more professional and just presented himself better than his opponents.
This got me thinking, why would they hate her for wanting the other guy to win? It seems to me the reason they feel this way is fear, McCain and
really most of the Republican Party platforms are all fear based, Fear Obama because he is a socialist, Fear Obama because he hangs out with
terrorists, Fear Obama because he will raise your taxes, Fear Obama because he is a liberal, and so the story goes on, and it reminds me of GWB
speeches about the terrorists are out to get you, and so on and so on.
This tactic did seem to serve GWB and IMHO some voting irregularities, but what about tomorrow? Will this tactic work? Have the American people
grown beyond ignoring issues by its candidates or do they hear the beat of a new drum?
One of the most impressive things I have seen from Obama is he just doesn’t preach unity; he has shown it by not attacking conservatives. He seems
to realize we are so much more when we are united, as he has stated, we are not a liberal America, we are not conservative America, we are the United
States of America it’s this mans message that has inspired a nation, and having hope is a great thing, and I think it will bring him victory
tomorrow night. This victory will not be just his; it will be ours as it should be. Hopefully soon politicians labeling a certain part of a state as
un-American will be a thing of the past. Hopefully the politics of fear will also be a thing of the past.
What say you?
