The Holistic Economy Endorses Barack Obama

Barack Obama

I'd like to take this opportunity to express my support for presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Obama has inspired me along with hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of Americans. I believe there is nothing more important than a leader who can inspire us to do great things. I believe Obama is a person who is comfortable in his own skin. He is a competent manager, judging by the effectiveness of his campaign. And he is a good person.

His speech in New Hampshire after his loss to Hillary Clinton was especially riveting. If you haven't seen the video done by several musicians and actors setting part of that speech to music, please go watch it now. It is an emotional and important tribute to Obama's words.

Beyond pure inspiration, I urge you to examine Obama's Website. His positions on every issue, from renewable energy to security to immigration are sensible and well-considered.

I've included the words from Obama's speech below.

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation: Yes, we can.

It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail towards freedom through the darkest of nights: Yes, we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness: Yes, we can.

It was the call of workers who organized, women who reached for the ballot, a president who chose the moon as our new frontier, and a king who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the promised land: Yes, we can, to justice and equality.

Yes, we can, to opportunity and prosperity. Yes, we can heal this nation. Yes, we can repair this world. Yes, we can.

Obama lacks a legislative or any other record where he's shown what he can do while in government. So far, he's just all talk. I'd rather have someone who I know can do versus someone who tells me to "hope" (I never lost hope) and that he represents "change" (what kind, bad or good change, no change for change sake). Obama is just like a kid with a new driver's license - where you wanna go? You might not get there.
