When Obama gave a speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention, I said, "That's the man who should be running for president."
We live in a very Republican neighborhood and don't dare put an Obama sign in our yard for fear of alienating our neighbors. We avoid talking politics with our church friends, as if it is immoral, unChristian to be a Democrat. Well, here are some of the things I consider immoral:
- I happen to feel it is immoral to wage an unprovoked war, to kill soldiers and civilians, to destroy buildings and infrastructures--all in the name of oil and GREED--at the cost of $255 million per day, $1.78 billion a week, or over $7 billion a month.
- I happen to feel it is immoral that 45 million Americans do not have health insurance, especially considering the amount of $$ spent on the above. Please read TravelinOma's blog today, if you really want to hear lack of insurance problems.
- I happen to feel it is immoral to give 700 billion dollars to the rich Wallstreet FatCats while there is such great need and poverty in our land.
- I think it is immoral that our teachers are underpaid and our children are poorly educated.
The is much immorality in the government and I can't really put into words how strongly I feel about the necessity of CHANGE. We need more than change, we need an overhaul, a total revamping.
I voted early because I was going to be in London on Election Day. That trip, sadly, will not take place. Please remember that money is a problem for the middle class in the U.S. and vote for Barack Obama.
