This coming election will be a deciding factor in how our country will be run for at least the next four years. Each of us need to get out and vote. It helps to keep informed with the political news-even though it is not perfect-it's all we have. I will be voting for Barack Obama and Joe Biden because I believe they are the force for real change; change in our economy and other issues that are of great importance to voters today.
Many women are voting for Sarah Palin because she is a woman. Many of the Hillary Clinton supporters believe that these two women are alike-they are not. Paulin is an extreem opposite of Clinton and will actually set women years backward.
Barack Obama has even more experience as a senator and working with economically poor and middle class people than George Bush had when elected. The economic mess we are now in and the war situation are a result of Bush policies. We can't afford more of the same which is what we'll get with McCain. John McCain has lied to the American public outright about several issues. If he does this now-what will he do when he's in office?
However you choose to vote, the important thing is to get out and vote. We cannot afford to be complacent today.
