If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a million times. Vote for Change. Vote for Obama. There’s only one problem. Obama doesn’t appear to be about actually changing anything if this photo of him in front of one of his signs is to be taken at face value:
“Believe” in change? No, thanks. I’d rather have real change right now. I want to actually see things change. I don’t care who’s nose gets bloodied in the process. Fighting ain’t bad by default. It’s what you’re fighting for or against that makes the fighting good or bad.
I want to see an end to the attacks on the rights of women. I want to see an end to the attacks on the gay community and want to see them get the same rights and privileges that my partner and I enjoy without question.
I want the religious reich kicked so hard in the nuts they’ll still be on the floor a hundred years from now. Hell, I want to to see the GOP go from God’s Official Party back to the Grand Old Party.
I do not want to believe these changes as well as others are going to happen someday. I want to know that these changes are going to happen.
