On Hope


"Once you chose hope anything is possible"-Christopher Reeve

I've been following this presidential race closely and tonight I finally feel at rest for making the decision to vote for Obama. His speech was personal, straight to the point, and moving. I'm just inspired by his spirit and his determination to restore hope in America.

I love that he gave specifics on what his plans are for America's future. He addressed some topics that I feel strongly about like global warming, ending the war responsibly, and on personal responsibility. I'm with Obama when he says eight years is ENOUGH.

I was so hyped up after listening to him speak. I actually made a donation on his website because I want to support him.

We need a change in direction. I believe that Obama can bring it. I'm encouraging everyone to register and rock the vote.

I felt the same way after hearing his speech. This is about more than someone who can give a good speech, though; it's about his ability to motivate people and restore people's hope in America! I especially liked what he had to say about how patriotism isn't defined by one's political party.

I would be for him too, but I don't want to live in a socialist country. I don't think that higher taxes and bigger government is a good thing.

"I'm voting Democrat because I believe that the best strategy in war is defeat. It broadens the mind to learn Japanese, German and Arabic. Talk about multiculturalism!

I'm voting Democrat because I'm mad that George W. Bush hasn't caught Bin Laden. That's because Bin Laden is the only Islamic terrorist in the world.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that if I don't have enough money, the solution is for the government to take more of my money. Who needs money when gas is $5 per gallon?

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that the ideal family is two homosexual bonobos, a goat and a parrot raising a human baby. Love and compassion is all it takes to make a successful family!

I'm voting Democrat because it's my body, and if I want to kill my baby, I'll do it, even if its head is in the birth canal. If I want to cut out my intestines and feed them to the crocodiles, I'll do that too. That's the freedom our forefathers enshrined in the Constitution.

I'm voting Democrat because our enemies on the battlefield deserve comfy hotel rooms, Pay-Per-View, prostitutes and all the benefits of American citizenship.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe we need other countries' permission for me to turn down my thermostat.

I'm voting Democrat because I care about the real victims of crime -- criminals.

I'm voting Democrat because the real cure for racism includes preferential policies based on race -- particularly in presidential voting. If you believe that a black candidate ought to be qualified, as well as black, you're worse than Bull Conner.

I'm voting Democrat because everyone deserves crappy healthcare. Sure, you'll have to wait years for that life-saving cancer surgery. But it's first come, first served at the cemetery!

I'm voting Democrat because I believe in minority rights (except in Muslim countries), free speech (with regard to pornography but not conservative talk radio), environmentalism (unless we're talking about Al Gore's house) and diplomacy (but never backed by the threat of military force).

I'm voting Democrat because I like the words "hope" and "change." Also "kazoo." That's a funny word.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that America's founders were rich, white, greedy xenophobes, and that America's founding principles are hogwash requiring periodic editing from an unelected group of liberal judges.

Most of all, I'm voting Democrat because I like the ideas they have over in France, but I don't feel like moving there. I'll threaten to move, but I really won't. After all, I have a good job, healthcare, lower taxes, free speech and a social framework that promotes family structure. And all of it is defended by the most effective fighting force on the planet.

If only the institution of far-left values resulted in a great country. Oh, well. That won't stop me from voting Democrat, though. After all, I'm voting Democrat because thought isn't one of my strong suits."

How about a comment from someone you actually know! :lol: Some of these comments above. . .wow, I don't know about you, but it makes me MORE inclined to vote Obama, not less.

I find the narrative in the townhall "comment" especially disturbing. The way much of the Republican party is framing the issues these days really disturbs me.

I too, will be voting Obama and I hope he wins.

As I always, I admire your courage in speaking your heart in your blogs.
