Friend: not out tonight?
Me: It’s Tuesday.
Me: Should I be out?
Friend: yessssss, to celebrate Barack Obama’s Wisconsin victory
Friend: Let’s do shots of Hope!
Me: Sweetie, I don’t support Barack.
It really annoys me that because I am young people I know just assume that I support Barack. I don’t have or not have a ton of issues with him, but that’s because I don’t know enough about his platform and his beliefs/views. I do know, however, that I will not jump on the bandwagon of supporters from the youth who have emerged to support Barack because he appeals to them/us. Why does he appeal to the youth? I cannot support him until I figure this out. I know I disagree with him on abortion and gay marriage. I have heard his views on and plans for the Iraq war are less than stellar…
I suppose because I dislike both John McCain and Hillary, I need to sit down and figure out which of these 3 I dislike the least. What a way to choose the leadership of my country…who can I stomach the most. I would absolutely like to go on the record in saying that I will not support Hillary simply because she is a woman. I will not support Barack simply because he appeals to the youth. And I will not vote for McCain just because he is a Republican and that is the party I am registered with. Sometimes I really hate politics. I hate when it comes down to who is the best of the worst and is your choice only because they have a lot of money and a lot of friends with money. It’s so depressing and discouraging. I hate looking at where our country is going sometimes.
