Let me tell you why I voted for Obama. Among many other reasons, I voted for Obama because he isn’t some retiree who doesn’t know what Twitter is. I voted for Obama because he went to Harvard and has written 3 books, one just for his daughters. He is a great man and one I am proud to call my president.
Yes, he didn’t so everything he promised in 2008. But what President does? Our country needs someone who is current and knows how we have changed as a people.
More than ever, we are single parents, identify as not religious, are made up of different ethnicities, and finally have the courage to stand up for equal marriage rights. We are no longer a nation of white people, living in fear, hell bent on fire and brimstone.
The America I am proud of knows if it doesn’t affect you, let people do what makes them happy. Let us find our path and have it not be littered with judgement that festered simply because your grandfather hated what isn’t white, straight, or quiet.
I voted for President Obama because he represents the America I want to live in. Hope and change may seem like fluffer words to some, but to me and the millions that voted for our returning president, they mean something: a country that recognizes the issues and moves toward making us all better as American citizens and human beings.
