Thank you to everyone that visited Pennsylvania for Change. This blog has achieved its goal, that of supporting “Change”.
I have met so many wonderful people through this blog and by connecting to their blogs. The past 7 1/2 months have been an amazing journey.
Our work is not finished. If we have learned anything from the last 8 years of the Bush/Cheney regime, it is that we must forever remain vigilant to protect our democracy. Never again can we allow our freedoms to be taken from us nor can we allow those in power to trash our sacred Constitution.
North Carolina has been a red state since 1976; Obama is turning it blue
The spark for the civil rights movement happened 48 years ago in Greensboro, North Carolina. The state has voted red since 1976 – and it was red until mid-September. Pepe Escobar, reporting from Greensboro and financial center Charlotte, tells how Senator Barack Obama’s campaign has energized voters from a broad spectrum, including blacks, female voters and independents, suburban and exurban, to the point that the state is now turning blue.
On the street in North Carolina this week Pepe Escobar spoke to one man who said, “Everybody’s excited about Obama,” a statement that really exemplifies the mood in N.C.
The Republican Party “Southern Strategy” is not working anymore. This is the new New South, 16 years after Bill Clinton. Obama – a liberal black senator from Chicago – is on the road to carry other southern states, from Virginia to Florida.
Escobar comments, “This is a second silent American revolution,” a sentiment echoed by a local early voter, “Everybody’s hurting, we want change.”
… is preparing to be archived. Beginning on November 7, 2008, this blog will no longer be accepting comments. There will be a special Post Election Day posting encouraging people to share their voting and GOTV experiences. Thank you for your support. It’s been a very long eight months.
Now, go out and help get voters to the polls to vote for the best candidates, Barack Obama and Joe Biden. And also, vote for the candidates listed on theCandidates’ Page.
YES WE CAN!
UPDATE: Things could change… there may be more starting in 2009. 8)
If you don’t know the location of your polling place, then go to Barack Obama’s website by clicking on this link…
If we are looking towards the future for this nation, then the choice is clear. Only Obama/Biden have policies and plans to move our nation forward.
If we want to revisit the past and keep things just like they are, a failing economy and more wars, then vote McCain/Palin. The McCain/Palin policies and plans will move our nation backwards. John McCain is a backwards thinking person, trying to relive his life and Sarah Palin is a “Diva” who is only thinking about HER OWN FUTURE and not our nation’s future. Oh, and by the way, Sarah Palin is a “Pinko”. Read what she had to say a few weeks before her nomination to the VP spot. Socialism is good for Alaska but not the rest of the nation.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I could use a little help with my health insurance premium and my business would benefit if more people had decent paying jobs and it’s about time that I get a tax break, just like Bush gave to the richest people in our nation and McCain plans to make permanent. John McCain and Sarah Palin want to relive the Reagan years where my TAXES INCREASED and big corporations received my tax break. Reminder… the Reagan years were the Union busting years and as a result, many workers have lost benefits.
McCain/Palin – benefit BIG CORPORATIONS and LOBBYISTS
This is true committment to the American people. Today Barack Obama and 9000 supporters braved the elements at Widener University, Chester, PA. The weather is very, very cold and wet and windy. Today is the kind of day that makes a person want to crawl up in front of a wood stove. It is bone chilling weather. Yet, Barack Obama and his supporters stood out in the rain. This is true grit.
Barack Obama looks really cold and so do the attendees. Hope no one gets sick.
You can always tell the difference between a Republican and a Democrat. The Republican is the one with the hate speech and the Democrat is the one with the hope speech. It almost looks like more Obama supporters at the rally than McCain supporters. These rally goers are shackled by fear and that is why they latched onto the hate filled lies about Obama. They have so little in their lives and this fear and hatred makes them feel alive. The one woman said “It’s my country, too.” Well, I have news for her. It’s my country, too, and we have had 8 years of her country and just look at the f**kin mess her president created. Wars that we cannot afford and a destroyed economy. McCain will not help these “guns and Jesus” people pay for their health insurance nor will he help them get jobs that pay a living wage. Instead, McCain will tax their health insurance and continue to support policies that send good paying jobs oversears. It really is sad for these people. This is what happens when people don’t receive a proper education. They feed their ignorance with hate and violence.
My choice? I choose HOPE over HATE.
Learn the truth about Barack Obama’s faith at Matthew 25.
