It's Time for a Change

I came across this video this morning on adrants and was so moved by it I had to post it. I'll preface by saying that I'm not an Obama supporter, nor am I opposed to Barack. I've been lazy and haven't read the platforms for my democratic candidates so I can't say who I should support, but I agree with Obama that change is needed for our country.

I will say this though: for the first time since I've been old enough to vote, I'm excited about politics. I'm excited about the changes that are taking place; the inevitability that regardless of who wins the Democratic nomination there will be a change for our country. Soon we'll have a female nominee or an African American nominee to lead our party into office.

So look at this video and let me know your thoughts, Democrat or Republican. Are you looking forward to the changes that are coming?

I'm not a Democrat. I am very scared about what he means for change. America is the number one country economically and militarily. We have more freedoms than any other country in the world.

I never approve of change just for the sake of change. He cannot get my support until he is very specific about what he plans on changing. Something I have not seen from his campaign.

This is actually important to me right now. I am trying to decide to vote for Mc. Cain or punish the Republican Party (like I did in 2006) and vote the other way. The specific issues of Obama are critical to that.

Great Blog by the way.
