Black man for President?
My answer is yes but; I feel some white Americans are saying no. We had our primary presidential elections yesterday in South Carolina. After the votes were counted, I watched the news to get an update and to find out the percentages on the election. I wasn't surprised to hear the news reporter say that one voter mentioned to her that he voted for Senator Clinton because he didn't want to see a black man get it. As well educated as Senator Obama is and the promise he makes to change the world, it still doesn't sink into the minds of some people that he's here to help us all. Would people really rather see our economy fail than allow a black man to do what's necessary to improve it? Why are we still breaking barriers in the 21st century? I'll tell you why, because some people don't think a black man belongs in a "white house". To me, I think Obama is the right man to get the job done but; I also support Senator Clinton and would love to see one as president and the other as vice president.
I am very happy to be receiving the tax breaks and the tax rebate but it's only good for a month or so, then most will be back in the same boat they are in now....a sinking boat. It's unfortunate that funds will have to come from the cut of food stamps and unemployment. Why cant we pull some of the money from the war to filter back into the United States? Or better, why cant we just fire up the machine and make more green? While the working class celebrates with our rebates, the less fortunate will suffer even more. Please don't misunderstand me; I truly think people are thankful for it but I also think it will not fix our economic. I believe in Obama when he says ‘Its time for a change", and I believe he can help improve the economy and bring the gas prices down. I currently spend around $100 a week on gas, that's $5,000/year.
I choose Senator Obama because of all the things he stands for....making education affordable, helping the elderly and disability, world peace and improving the economy. Gas prices are ridicules; people are losing their homes and jobs by the hour, and the war in costing us billions of dollars on a monthly base. I was absolutely sick when I learned we were paying out billions for the war. Can we bring back equality to Americans? Can we stabilize the economy? Can there be peace in the Middle East? Obama says yes!
