TO ALL OF THE CYNICAL DEMOCRATS:
As we draw closer to the election, I admit it is kind of nerve racking to see the polls between McCain and Obama neck in neck. Living in the ultra-liberal bubble of Portland, OR has led me to believe Obama is already President… (I also thought John Kerry was a sure shot, too).
However, I am really sick of the defeatist pessimism displayed by a lot of young Democrats I have come in contact with over the past few days!!!!
Yes, it is easy to not have any faith in the system after Bush stole the election twice due to the outdated electoral college bullshit. What ever happened to THE PEOPLE’S VOTE determining who should be President. I certainly hope people don’t assume the system is going to be fucked up again and again and use it as an excuse to justify that their vote doesn’t matter. If every young, apathetic Democrat did that then there is seriously no hope.
The vibes and thoughts you throw out into the world are contagious and can affect the outcome of the situation.While there is a lot at stake and little doubt that this election will be a close call I think it is important to stay positive and support Obama’s message of “HOPE”.
