Madness - Americans do not Vote?!

Hi Peeps,

The countdown has begun!

There is one presidency that is not up for election, it is the office of the president of the Universe, master and King...El Shaddai. No controversy.

I have been hooked on the presidential election frenzy in the past 72hrs, especially since CNN happens to be one of the few channels broadcasting in English in this particular city (shh don't ask me where I am).

Anyhoos as per the title, as much as the frenzy has been going on for Obama, I am cautious that Americans and indeed the whole world don't just stop on celebrating the need for change while not neglecting making the change itself i.e. Voting for the change.
According to CNN news, in time past millions of Americans do not bother to turn out to vote but I believe that tide has changed.

Forget Race, Creed or Gender, it's about change full stop.

Someone defines Madness as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result hence it will be madness to
  • Forgetting / Refusing to vote or Assuming your one vote does not count.
  • Voting for the typical face fits the bill candidate, change is NOT TYPICAL.
I am not a US Citizen so shame I can't vote :(. However if I had the opportunity, my choice will be clear.

Dignity and Integrity are some qualities that I find endearing and in this race my choice has demonstrated it. He answers the questions asked and focussing on the issues, distancing himself from personal attacking and throwing of mudslings.

So while I don't know about having a full resume or his future performance on the surmountable task of becoming the next US president, I can only go on what I have heard and seen so far to declare that the not so Typical candidate gets my vote today.

How is this for a change: Lewis Hamilton became the youngest Formula One winner (he happens to be black).

LOLLLLL...YES, WE CAN!!!!!!!! I'm beginning to think if blogsville were the sole voters, Obama would be the next president, hands down!

But yes, there is one post that no one can contest for...EL SHADDAI! Haleluyah...and He is the one who ultimately assigns kings on their thrones. May His will be done tonight!

(I'm kinda excited...)

Jaycee said...

Yeah, I know some bloggers have been comparing Lewis to Obama...interesting...

Temite said...

errr who is the Lewis guy and we all hope he wins (Obama). Did you hear, apparently his grandma died yesterday or two days ago. So sad!

....and so, the journey of change is in the making. If only people realise that a (their) vote not cast (for their desired candidate) is a vote cast in favour of the opponent.
All in all, let God's will be done.

He alone allows it.

lets hope that the powers that be do not stifle pple and frustrate people and discorage them from voting by creating these unbearably long lines and insuffucient booths and so on. We all know that the republican strategy has always been to get as few people to vote as possible. that has always worked for them. Lets bind them and cast them today o!!

Change is not typical...I like that.
So many layers to that statement.

Change is scary but it is sometimes the only way to move forward.
