My ballot is in the mail, and there’s no turning back. Why did I vote as I did?
I didn’t want a man in the White House who built his fortune at the expense of working people; a man who showed concern for the health and well-being of his people when he was governor but caved in to the extremely selfish ideology of the tea party to get the presidential nomination; a man representing our country who knows the world about as well as Sarah Palin. And I certainly didn’t want a man setting the course for our economy who thinks 47 percent of us are freeloaders.
No, I want a man who can relate to the problems of the working class, women and minorities; speaks to the world’s leaders with strength, insight and respect; stands by his convictions while his opposition tries to destroy him and the economy; and a man who works to promote renewable energy, restore our infrastructure and reduce global warming.
So, I stand by my choice, but will he win? That depends on what kind of country we want to be.
