I was walking the dog past Wilton Manors City Hall just before 7AM today and there was a line of around 40 people out there. Early Voting has started, I think I will wait a day or two though for the crowds to slow a wee bit.
On the other hand, This is one of a few different postings that had gotten sent to me by a number of people over the last year or so. I am not going to verify every single fact, I'll leave that to the fact checkers. I will say that I completely agree with the sentiment.
You can quote me on this one: If you wait for perfection in a candidate, you will wait for a very long time. It is like standing in a house that is burning down and worrying about painting the walls. Get out, put out the fire, and move forward.
So when I do go and vote, I will be voting a straight Democrat ticket and No on all the Florida Amendment Questions.
I suggest you do the same. The arsons have had their day, it's time to move forward.
Velma had sent me this particular piece. We've seen them all, so read along.
I am a firm believer in the intelligence of the people.
If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crises.
The important point is to bring them the real facts.
Think of life as a great road trip. If you spend too much time looking back at where you've been, you'll miss what's ahead.
Mad At The President......................for What?
Now, since Barack Obama became President, all of a sudden, folks have gotten mad, and want to take America Back...
BACK TO WHAT or WHERE is my question?
I am voting for PRESIDENT OBAMA no matter what. He should get 8 years in office, because he IS CHANGING America and we all know why THEY don't like it! If Obama wasn't Black, they would be praising and thanking him.
After The 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad?
You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.
You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq.
You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.
You didn't get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and still counting) on said illegal war.
You didn't get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.
You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq.
You didn't get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.
You didn't get mad when they didn't find or catch Bin Laden.
You didn't get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.
You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.
You didn't get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could ever spend, the 1%, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks.
You didn't get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.
You didn't get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.
You didn't get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement savings, and home values.
You finally got mad when a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick... Oh, Hell to the No!
PLEEEASE----circulate this everywhere---people need to be reminded!!!!
2012 is a good year for them to remember! Let's get as passionate about re-electing our wonderful hard working President as we were when we got him elected! Don't get complacent and don't take for granted he will easily be back in office.
Let's all get busy starting the work today!!!!
Give this MAN credit where credit is due. Black folks stop thinking just because we have a Black President that you were entitled to something without working for it! (Did you think because we got a Black President 4 years ago, you were going to get a check in the mail for $100k or something, maybe the 40 acres and a mule...come on....get real!)
Make a difference Get educated, stop complaining and get back on track to preserving our race and represent like The Obamas. Do your part! VOTE Obama 2012. Spread the word. We have to get out and VOTE like we did 4 years ago...if we want to keep president Obama in office. Don’t think for one minute that your Vote doesn't count!
One man can make a difference but he must be in the right place.
