America. You’ve had almost 8 years of Dubya looking you right in the eye and lying to you. You had every reason to get rid of him before his re-election, yet some of you blindly believed in the President. “He wouldn’t mislead us”, you probably told yourself.

I bet those of you who fit in this category believe ‘ole Dubya” when he said (today) that the US is not in a recession. He says we’re just in a slow down.

You need to take a look at a post I’ve got in my tax cut economics category for a wake up. Last month, I predicted this statement would be coming out of his mouth fairly soon.

If you want more punishment for your stupidity, a vote for Clinton or McCain gives you what you want. They have a proven track record of being the type of people who have no problem looking you right in the eye and lying to you.

Be it related to an issue concerning our national security or a just a regular old presidential stump speech appearance, they’ll tell you what they think you either want to hear, changing their previously touted position in the blink of an eye; or tell you what they need to in order to either stoke fear in you or to clean up something they said that exposed them for the lying souls they really are.

I don’t live in a small town now. I don’t own a gun and I keep my religion to myself. But yes I’m bitter. I’m originally from a small town called Bitter City (Gary) Indiana. I know what being bitter is like living in a small town that has got the short end of the stick year after year after year.

I’ll just say that, collectively, this country has worked very hard to make it what it has been. In spite of all it’s transgressions, it’s still been the land of opportunity.

We have a new opportunity to add to the legacy of those of the past (all races, creeds and colors) who shed blood in all aspects of historic struggles that shaped our democracy.

If only so many were so aware of this.

I just filled up my tank and the price of a gallon of regular is $3.50 plus at just about every gas station here in Raleigh, NC.

I just had to pay a $333 co-pay for a ct scan for my daughter earlier in the day.

I’m pissed.

I stop by a convience store and over hear several NC candidates for Governor advertisements for my vote while I was in line to pay for an overpriced bottle of Sunkist. All of them say that I need a governor that won’t look out for the special interest people or it’s time for the “not so special interest citizens of the state of NC” to have someone in the Governors house that will look out for them.

I get home, check the news on the net, and I’m inundated with video reports showing Hillary dancing on stage to the tune of Rocky, or reading about Obama asking people can they smell what he’s cookin.

And George W. Bush has the nerve to go to NEW ORLEANS of all places and dances on stage, having a good ole time with some house servant looking brotha with an umbrella dancing with him.

I have no choice but to vote and become involved in the political process no matter what the outcome of the 2008 Presidency for the rest of my life. I will not go down without a fight. The reason I blog now is solely to voice my “perspectives on life and politics from a brotha’s perspective”.

No political candidate speaks for me. I’ve got a decent paying job. I’ve got health insurance. I’ve got a home with a regular mortgage. I’m raising two girls and my spouse is someone with a Master’s Degree who’s had to accept a job paying her far below what she used to make and provide what’s needed to have something left after the important bills are paid, just to pay her student loans that will soon kick in after her deferment expires (she was unemployed for 8 months prior to this February 08).

I am doing great by some other peoples standards, but I am struggling to stay afloat. But I will stay afloat. And I will make my voice heard. I am neither black nor a liberal or a conservative. I am a citizen of these United States of America.

Hopefully, those of you voting for Hillary understands what someone is saying when they say they are voting for Obama more for the revolution that it fuels. Voting for Hillary does not fuel revolution. It brings back some of the same special interest people back into power or keeps some who’s already in power, in place.

The Clinton history of pandering has been “vetted” by ones look back at Bill’s Presidency. Do you think the Clintons are scared of any of us? Hell no. Especially not Bill. He’s shown us that hand.

I want someone who cares what white people are going to say about their moves/decisions. What Black people care about their moves/decisions. What Hispanics and Asians care about their moves/decisions. I want us all to have that weight.

I hope Obama wins. And after him, I hope someone else wins who’s so new to the scene that they too have not been around long enough to owe something to a special interest. They would have to worry about what THE PEOPLE think of his or her decisions as President.

And not let these bastards get away with gouging us at the pump and laying people off because their investors like it when they cut costs and move jobs overseas so the profits can go up so more rich people either here or in Saudi Arabia, Japan or China can buy the stock at a higher cost.

Hopefully, there are enough people out there thinking this way and not the same number of fools who actually voted for GHWB not once, but twice.
