(From OBAMA – Obey Giant)
I’ve been debating whether to announce my choice for the presidential race, partly because I know we don’t all agree on who’s the best person for the job (and some more strongly than others), and partly because I hadn’t found an opportune time to say it. But after seeing this poster from Obeygiant.com I couldn’t help myself any longer. I recently talked to my friend Kevin about why I hadn’t said much about the candidates yet, and realized that some of it comes from my own desire to keep things at peace. There’s a part of me that loathes getting into heated arguments over things like this. But there is another, almost equally as strong, side of me that is extremely opinionated. A pleasant mixture!
Anyways, I am proudly supporting Obama’s campaign. I’ve liked him for quite awhile, I like where he is as an overall candidate, and for me he’s not a one “issue” wonder. Up to now I’ve never been that interested in the Presidency, I’ve only been able to vote since the last time elections and well, I was less than interested in the options. But Obama’s got me not only excited about the presidential race, but about the possibility of the future of America. I think a lot of young people feel this way (and possibly the not-so young), and it’s a good feeling, like maybe we are getting a chance to have our voices heard now, and that maybe (hopefully), a new generation of Americans will become interested in directing our country’s path. For me my faith and politics are not separate parts of life and so I’ve taken time making this choice, knowing there is no perfect candidate out there, and I pray it’s a good choice and for a hopeful future.
So here’s to Obama on Feb 5th, and November. I don’t plan on hitting you up with a lot of Obama stuff, but when there’s relevant news you can bet I won’t be shy about anymore.
