Hope you’re all enjoying this Columbus Day. I just wanted to take a chance to respond to a couple of emails that have been going around lately regarding Barack Obama.
I think we all can agree on how important this election is to our country, our families, and ourselves. In light of the recent upsets in the market, I’m sure many of us, as am I, are thinking about where the next leader of our country is going to take us globally, nationally, and economically.
I have been a strong supporter of Barack Obama for a long time. I truly believe that he is offering the American people something that we all need; hope.
I ask that you all give great consideration to the well known fact that we have a biased media in our lives; this includes FOX, MSNBC,CNN and others. This rings true for both parties and recently we all received a forwarded email announcing Sean Hannity’s “special program” being aired on Fox in regards to Obama. I think we all need to step back and realize that whichever news source we choose to get our information from must be taken with a grain of salt. They are masters of distraction and embellishment of issues that often times we don’t even hear our candidates or their opponents giving heed to.
I urge you all to find the source of information. This means reading up on policies directly from our candidates, getting to know their backgrounds and plans not from a filtered media outlet, but directly from the campaigns.
I’m also discouraged to hear the kind of comments that were in the previous email about Hannity’s Obama program. An Obama Presidency is not a dangerous prospect by any means. If you disagree with legitimate issues, then to each his own right. But to give in to false truths about Obama is just a result of bad information.
Here is a video aired on all news outlets. It’s a recent McCain rally in which his supporters turn on him when he calls Obama “a decent person”, and “nothing to be scared of”. It’s short, and interesting, and called, “McCain Defends Obama“.
Thanks for listening, and I look forward to keeping this discussion open with anyone who would like to do so in this important time in our lives.
