- Because you’re African-American do you feel pressured to vote for Barack Obama?
- Don’t you want to be a part of history, the first African-American elected into presidential office?
Some people think the only reason that I’m voting for Barack Obama is because I’m African-American. Well people that’s not the only reason. Barack Obama is the best man for the job. I agree and support many of his plans. Obama plans on raising taxes for the wealthiest Americans – 5% of Americans – by only 3%. He plans on cutting taxes for 95% of working Americans. Obama also plans on making college affordable by giving college students a credit of $4,000 a year toward tuition.
6% of Americans are unemployed, that’s a huge number for unemployment. Obama will provide tax relief for small businesses and start-up companies. Obama will also increase federal support for research, technology, for com¬panies and universities to create new and advanced jobs.
I know that all campaigns are difficult, and both Obama and McCain have negatively attacked each other in one way but, McCain’s campaign has gone too far. McCain is now talking less about the issues and is attacking Obama more. At McCain rallies supporters are saying “kill him!” “terrorist” and “traitor” (referring to Obama). The McCain campaign should denounce these violent outbursts, but they haven’t even addressed them.
WHEN WILL OUR COUNTRY MOVE FORWARD?
Our government has to make a drastic change for the better. Our country cannot afford to have another Bush in office. McCain has voted the same as Bush 90% of the time. These are some reasons I support Barack Obama. Plus I want to be a part of history. (I’m not even going to mention Sarah Palin, everyone already knows what’s up with her)
