Ok, so after my last post, I decided to do some research as to what
Barack Obama is about. I read this and let me tell you, he is pretty damn good on paper. But isn't that what all politicians are supposed to be like?? I mean, if they have anything bad on their platform, no one's going to vote for them, right??
So I checked out John McCain. He is nowhere near as eloquent or convincing (conniving???) as Obama.
Here's my take, and please excuse my ignorance as I do not follow politics. In fact, as more people began to support Obama, I actually started to go toward McCain's side. It's in my personality. I tend to root for the bad guy. I stray from the "fan favourite". I always think that there has to be a strong reason as to why a person would want to go against society and create this tarnished persona where they are willing to take butt of the deal. It takes guts to not try to be the good guy in the situation. They might not always be doing the right thing at the moment, but they believe that they are working for the better. "The end result always justifies the means". As long as it's not selfish, i'm actually rooting for them. Maybe I'm tainted......meh. My blog, my opinion. But anyways, i'm straying.
So, yea, Barack Obama is saying what the people want to hear, and John McCain believes that George Bush's policy is ok, and he is basically going to follow it. Ok, Americans, who might be reading my blog, (although i'm pretty sure no one reads my blog except for John and Meli) Again, I apologise for my ignorance. But you guys do get a bad rep. And I believe it. I believe that most Americans out there are as dim witted and easily influenced and manipulated as they are portrayed to be. So, when everyone started to jump on Barck's bandwagon, I was surprised. Firstly, I thought he got so much support because he was black. Alot of the support he was getting was because he would be the first black president. I mean woo-hoo, that would be great, but how many of them actually know what he stands for. But again, whatever, my ignorance, my blog, my opinion. Then because he was getting alot of support because of his un-George Bush way of thinking. So, people were looking for a way out of George Bush's hold. But with survey's done prior to this election, I think that there was little percentage difference with American's and opinions as to how George Bush was doing. I mean, the last election w/ that other non-George Bush guy, didn't he promise to get the troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, albeit, he did have alot of the same policies of George Bush, I think that was one of the different points. So, wouldn't it make more sense to have the greater evil out of office and take the lesser evil? But whatever, I'm sure American's took more consideration into their decisions.
Ok, again straying. So, I believe that once people started jumping on Barack's bandwagon, people were blindly influenced again and started jumping on it too, simple because it was anti-George Bush. Hell, that would have been my decision from the beginning. Anything anti-Goerge Bush is a good enough reason to change a vote.
My main point, is just to know, if all these people who voted for Barack Obama, actually know 3 valid points on his platform. Another thing, how does he plan to execute them? Educate my ignorant self please.
FYI......if I were an American I would have voted for Barack. Simply because I have no idea why McCain would choose Palin as a running mate. She's crazy.
