I watched your debate this evening with Sen. Obama. I am sorry you were having a bad night. I do agree with many of your policies. However, the reasons I am voting for you have nothing to do with William Ayers or the Columbian trade agreement.
You seem like a pretty nice guy who was very frustrated this evening. We are all frustrated. Please keep focused on doing the right thing. Its worth it. Unfortunately, pretty nice guys don't tend to win elections. Eloquent, charismatic guys do win. (Of course, a lot can happen in three weeks, right?)
The good news is that the next president of the United States will not be the supreme ruler of the empire. There are checks and balances, debates and votes. And, I think this election cycle has made everyone just a little more aware of the importance of paying attention to the details. A lot of smart people will be thinking, talking, and sharing their opinions. We will all be watching a little closer than we ever have before.
In the meantime, I will keep debating the issues with my friends here on the internet. Hopefully, it will make us all just a little smarter. And, if anyone out there is listening, maybe we will even make a positive difference.
Just in case you forgot why I care, I have included a picture. It is from my son's 5th birthday. He chose the American flag for his cake because he loves America as much as his mommy does.
