Just an old liberal baby boomer keeping a watchful eye on the younger generation.
Where-in I ramble somewhat aimlessly about most anything that catches my interest or engenders my disgust. Politics, religion, widowhood, mental depression and living poor are fairly common themes here.
I’m going to vote for President Obama because I believe a woman has a right to control her own body.
I am voting for President Obama, because I stand with my LGBT friends for equality
I’m voting for President Obama because I accept science is humanity’s best way forward.
I am voting for President Obama because he gave us Obamacare.
I am voting for President Obama because the makeup of the Supreme Court is at stake.
I am voting for President Obama because Republicans have forgotten to put country first.
Finally, I’m voting for President Barack Obama because when he speaks, I believe what he has to say. He has integrity. And after his long campaign of vigorous Etch-a-Sketching, Mitt Romney never will.
Details for each point at the site. This may be my favorite though I agree 100% with each point individually.
I am voting for President Obama because Republicans have forgotten to put country first. How can Republicans even pretend to serve America’s best interest when they have sold their free will to Grover Norquist and his tax pledge? I am ashamed of the “just say no” antics of the Republican House and of the excessive filibustering of the Senate. Never before has a member of congress yelled “You lie” to a president addressing a joint session of congress as South Carolina Congressman Joe Wilson boorishly did. Never before has a Supreme Court Justice mouthed the words “Not true” at a president as Samuel Alito indecorously did at the State of the Union address. I have not forgotten Arizona Governor Jan Brewer shaking her finger in our president’s face, nor Florida Representative Allen West warning a sitting president to stay out of Florida. I haven’t forgotten Republicans had a meltdown when newly elected President Obama made a video to encourage school kids to study hard, or that rank and file Republicans rooted against Chicago being awarded the Olympics, and were irate when an American president won the Nobel Peace Prize, or that elected Republicans worried about Exxon and not the Gulf. I am voting for President Obama to send a message to Mitch McConnell that it is not his job to decide who is a one or two term president; such power belongs only to us, the voters. And I’m voting to tell Donald Trump and the birthers we find them to be nothing more than comic relief. I’m voting to object to the Republican assault on collective bargaining, on Acorn, and on Shirley Sherrod. I’m voting to protest all of the undemocratic Republican voter suppression efforts. And I’m voting against every mean-spirited Right Wing talking head from Limbaugh to Beck, from Malkin to Coulter, from FOX News, to World Net Daily. I have not forgotten George Bush. I have not forgotten Dick Cheney. I have not forgotten Karl Rove or Scooter Libby and I see the same faces that did their bidding now apprenticed to Mitt Romney. John Bolton. Dan Senor. Michael Chertoff. Everything old is “neo” again. I am voting for President Barack Obama because I am weary of war and death and soldiers damaged for life in both body and mind. No more war. Not Syria. Not Iran. Not anywhere. No.
