Why We Need Barack Obama

America has lost its balance, but we have an amazing, unique opportunity to restore that balance on November 4, 2008.

 If you want your children and grandchildren to inherit a world of war, elect John McCain.

 If you want to watch this planet lose its environmental and ecological balance through global warming, disruption of ecosystems, disregard for endangered species (and the list goes on), vote for John McCain.

 If you want to see a continuation of a dishonest, self-serving and criminal government, vote for John McCain.

 If you want to continue the global fight for oil, instead of embracing new and greener types of energy, vote for John McCain.

 If you want to pay for war and corporate greed with your hard-earned money, vote for John McCain.

 If you want to see more unemployment, poverty, homelessness and loss of personal freedoms, vote for John McCain.

 If, on the other hand, you want to change the above, vote for Barack Obama!

 If you think Obama’s head is in the clouds, look again; he also has two feet on the ground.

  1. But why should we choose someone who has close ties with Michael Ayers? Michael Ayers is a known unrepentant terrorist.

  2. First of all, it wasn’t Michael Ayers, it was William Ayers.

    This is old news. In Chicago in the 1990’s, Barack Obama worked with diverse groups of people who had one thing in common: they were trying to help the poor live better lives. William Ayers was among them. What Ayers did in the 1960’s was not a part of his life in the 1990’s. If you are going to stay stuck in this negative box you have created, you are not going to see the bigger picture.

    At their convention, McCain and Palin spent a lot of time attacking ordinary Americans for their participation in “community organizing”. Obama’s whole adult life has been based on community organizing – look what it’s done for him as well as for us. Ordinary Americans are the backbone of his campaign.

    McCain has chosen a running mate who claims to be guided by God, but who delivers speeches containing half truths and outright lies. What hypocrisy! She doesn’t support a woman’s right to choose, equal pay for equal work, and the list goes on. How ridicules of him to allow the religious right to write his platform.

    Despite McCain’s claims that he is distancing himself from George Bush, he has voted for his policies 90% of the time. Now he’s chosen a running mate whose public service experience is limited, to say nothing of her knowledge of foreign policy.

    McCain believes in war over diplomacy, which means more wealth for the companies who support it, more debt, unemployment and poverty for the rest of us.

    McCain perpetuates the Bush climate of fear for Americans.

    Incredibly, having had horrific experiences during the Vietnam War, McCain forgets about the needs of our war veterans.

    McCain is out of touch with how the worsening economy is affecting the poor and the middle class of this country, and how global warming affects the future of this planet. He barely acknowledges the need for clean energy technology.

    There is cause to be worried about McCain’s personal health, stamina and stability. Will he be able to hold up to the pressures of the presidency? It’s scary as hell to think that Sarah Palin, a young woman completely out of her league, could take his place. How irresponsible of him to select her.

  3. You are correct, and I stand corrected. I mistyped the name of the unrepentant and jubilant domestic terrorist who helped finance Senator Obama’s campaign.
