Make me vote for Barack Obama.
I’m a liberal. I’m a Democrat. It seems natural that I would want to vote for the new face of the Democratic Party. Liberals are supposed to be knee-jerk with their reactions–emotional. I should be ready, willing, and passionate about a candidate that promises hope and change away from the status quo. I’m not.
I need convincing.
Today marked the day that the Stock Market dropped over 700 points; the day that The House of Representatives voted against a bail-out plan for the Wall Street Mortgage crisis. Some are saying that today may mark the beginning of an economic depression that could surpass the Great Depression of 1929.
Here’s the chance for all Obama supporters to convince me that he can make it better.
Tell me why I should vote for Barack Obama as our next President of the United States.
A few things first:
1. Don’t use the words “change” or “hope”.
2. Don’t mention George W. Bush or “failed Bush policy.”
3. Don’t mention John McCain.
Remember, I’m a Liberal. I want to hear about some issues important to me; Health Care, Environmentalism, Alternative Energy, Education, Foreign policy.
Remember, I’m also kind of moderate. I still believe in The Constitution, free enterprise, and I just became eligible for a 401K program from my employer.
Can anybody convince me to vote for Barack Obama without using a “talking point” I’ve already heard. Specifically, why are YOU voting for him?
I’m a salesman–I can be sold. My problem is that nobody, including Barack Obama, is selling me on WHY I should vote for Obama. Yet, I get plenty of rhetoric on why I shouldn’t vote for John McCain.
Give me some facts. Send me links to verify.
Somebody, please…make me vote for Barack Obama.
