The Shit talking begins.
So I hope you guys been keeping up on the presidential debates lately. There's been alot of different views toward each candidate, and Obama seems to be at the center of it all. Hilary Clinton continues to claim that Obama is not ready for the White House. "He was a part-time state senator for a few years, and then he came to the Senate and immediately started running for president," she says dismissively. Obama's accomplishments are much more than Clinton seems to claim. Obama was a community organizer and led a voter-registration effort in Chicago that added tens of thousands of people to the rolls. He was a civil rights attorney and taught at one of the nation's premier universities. He helped pass complicated measures in the Illinois legislature on the death penalty, racial profiling, health care and more. In Washington, he has worked with Republicans on nuclear proliferation, government waste and global warming. This is just a run down of SOME of the things he has done. Either way, whether your a democrat, republican, idependent, green party, what ever, atleast get your facts right as to who you want to vote for. Don't be one of those people who after the elections, complain and complain about how shitty our government is and how you wish for the better. Make that effort and VOTE people! seriously. My 89-year old grandma even votes (thanks to tia amarilyz). There's no excuse. Enough of my political talk..... peace
