First, I must say that this has absolutly nothing to do with our current President, his incompetance speaks for itself. I'm past it, I'm looking to the future, to the next President.
The way I see it we have two options:
Keep things the way they are
Vote for change
Who is it we can vote for to vote for change?
Party is not a factor, opinion on issues is not a factor. Vote for Clinton, vote for McCain, vote for Edwards and the result will be the same, more of the same. What we need is a President who is not scared of living on the edge, a man who isn't afraid to point out the flaws of our country the way he sees them. A man who isn't afraid of speaking as himself, not just saying what his political advisor tells him. If a President speaks of a specific plan, I don't care what it is, its bullshit. The President's job has nothing to do with specifics, its all about direction, its all about setting the tone.
This country is falling fast and this election could very well determine its future. If we don't vote for change we very well be doomed. Our political system is in turmoil, we've got a disgusting war that no one has the guts to end, we've got an energy crisis, health care crisis, imagration crisis, racial problems, climate crisis, all real, all breathing down our neck.
It doesn't matter what the opinion of the candidate is, opinion and plans mean nothing if they don't have the guts to carry it out.
That is why America needs Mike Gravel!!!!
He's got the character!
He's got the vision!
And he's got the guts got do it all!
He's the only candidate out there to vote for, if you want to vote for change.
See for yourself (note these clips are only about a minutes each and they're very entertaining, he tears apart the other candidates).
There are more, you'll see them.
The only reason I've heard not to vote for Mike Gravel is that "he's not a serious candidate." Well if that's the only reason, then maybe he should be a serious candidate. Lets stop having the media tell us who is a "serious candidate" and choose for ourselves.
Time is running out, Gravel...America needs your help now!
