I have to say I love being a huge part of history in a good way. Being able to write about this election and support a candidate that has made such an impact on the country is so amazing. Not only is the presidential election a big deal, but for me a local election has been a great success to. I wrote about both of Michigan’s proposals on my blogs before and I am happy to say that both proposals passed, stem cell research will continue and be a great success in Michigan and people in pain will be able to find relief for their pain by being allowed to use medical marijuana.
I’m hoping the next 4 years bring great change and hope to everyone and things actually get done for the people of the united states. I guess only time will tell.

It’s here and we will finally know who will be our next president. I’m happy about this and hope that Obama wins, no matter who wins though, this will be a history making election in so many ways! One we could have our first black President, or our first women VP. A record breaking number of voters and so much more. I think this will be a very interesting election. I will hopefully be able to watch what is going on, the rest of my family is not very interested so I may have to be locked into my bedroom all night.
So have you voted? Are you going to?

I am voting in this election because I don’t want some dumb person in the white house or as my state representative. That said if the person I want to win does not win then I have every right to complain, if you don’t vote and the person you didn’t vote for, but wanted them to make it does not win then you can shut your mouth for 4 years and vote next time. Here in Michigan it is too late to register to vote, but other states are still accepting people. That said Connie, over at Brain Foggles tagged me for this very cool meme that tells people to get out and vote. So sit back and watch the video and then go register to vote, unless it’s midnight, then go to bed and do it first thing in the morning, and I mean first thing, no brushing your teeth or changing out of your pj’s. You can feed the dog first if you have to.
I don’t know a lot of bloggers the one’s I do I think already have been tagged. I was going to get my top droppers from entrecard but the site is not working. So I have one.

The other day I was watching the news and they had a thing about blacks in America and how this election could bring about more problems that do good. It seems that many blacks figure that nothing is going to change. I remember hearing one man I went to school with talk about how the only way that a black is going to make it in the world is to act white. Now personaly I take offence to this as not every white acts the same, many try to act “black” in some peoples eyes.
Here is what I think. We are all human, there is no difference we act how we act. Obama is acting like a politicion. He speeks well and dresses well. How is that not acting like a person. Apparently some blacks think it’s a problem for a black person to speek and dress well? Give me a break! Now before you go off on me wondering why I’m rasist, I’m not. I’m just stateing an obvouse thing here. It seems that whenever a black person makes it by haveing these attributes other blacks feel they have to put them down. This also happends with white people. Mostly when a “white trash” person makes it big.
One person I know said something that would work for any race, “If black people would stop complaining I wouldn’t hate them so much, they are annoying!” Now replace black with any other race and it still fits. We all have our issues and concerns. I think instead of making it a black vs white issue maybe we should just make it a whole society issue. Once we can stop reverencing people as a race and as fellow American citizens maybe something good will actually be accomplished.

I’m one of those people who don’t choose a candidate based on anything but what that person themselves stands for. In January I believed that Hillary was a good choice for the job as president. Now I am a supporter of Obama. Why, well because I don’t agree with how Hillary has handled herself and some of the things she stands for. While I don’t agree with everything Obama has said either, I think he is a better person for the job.
The main reason being his background and what he has been though in life. He was poor he knows what it’s like to be on assistance and need help. He also speaks well which for me right now is a huge deal. I can not stand listening to Bush talk. I think we need a president who can command the attention of the citizens of the united states and people all over the world. This man could possibly do just that. My mom compares him to Kennedy. She has liked Obama since before he decided to run for president. Even then he knew how to grab your attention.
I think the problem with this election is that everyone wants and needs change, both of the democratic candidates are pushing for change and both could do it. On the Republican side I also think McCain could make some changes, but at the same time he supports things I don’t support. This election is monumental not just because of who is running but what this election will mean for the future of the united states and the world. I believe this is a huge turning point in our history and when they look back on it, I hope they will see a great and wonderful outcome, not just more war and violence.
