Seven years ago on this day, a thick cloud of dust shrouded one of our greatest cities. Amid the tragedy, something else emerged: sympathetic hands from points around the globe. But as the Bush/McCain team employed it's intricate web of lies and mismanagement to lead us to an unprecedented "preemptive" war, those sympathetic hands withdrew. Then backs were turned. Today, America is hated more than ever.
I am afraid of the people that hate us. I am afraid of them because they would kill my daughter without a moment's hesitation. In the eyes of the people that hate us as well as many others, John McCain is George Bush.
No one believes Barack Obama is George Bush.
When we elect Barack Obama, there will still be a great deal of hate and some portion of it will remain no matter what. But I believe Obama will lessen that hate and breathe life into a more globally-minded America. He will surround himself with smart competent people, selected for the good of the country. I trust Obama's judgment.
I do not trust John McCain's judgment. The Bush/McCain team has shrunk the dollar, sold my daughter's America to China, and deregulated the banking industry straight to Hell. McCain's tactics prove that he will embrace the same sort of lying, manipulation and conniving that have kept his party in power for eight years during which they have swindled the American people of their rights as well their money with the sole purpose of keeping the wealthy elite in control.
As President, Obama has a massive job before him. The one thing I can give him right now in order to succeed is my belief.
I believe in Barack Obama.
