READ UP ON HIM!



LISTEN UP: IF YOU'RE AN OBAMA SUPPORTER AND YOU'VE BEEN RUNNING AROUND TALKING ABOUT HOW GREAT HE IS AND HOW WONDERFUL HE'D BE AS PRESIDENT AND HOW HE REPRESENTS CHANGE AND IS THE FUTURE OF POLITICS...IF YOU BELIEVE THAT HE'S THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES...IF YOU'RE AFRICAN AMERICAN AND YOU'RE HOPING TO SEE THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT...IF YOU'RE WHITE AND WANT TO SEE THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT...IF YOU'RE SITTING WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY...DISCUSSING BARACK AND HOW WONDERFUL HE IS AND IF YOU'RE GENERALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE UP COMING ELECTION...WELL THEN...I CERTAINLY HOPE YOU HAVE ALREADY READ BOTH OF HIS BOOKS!! IF YOU HAVEN'T...YOU NEED TO! NO POINT IN JUMPING ON THE BAND WAGON AND GETTING BEHIND A PERSON WITHOUT TRULY TAKING THE TIME TO KNOW WHO THEY ARE AND WHERE THEY COME FROM.

I ENCOURAGE ANY AND EVERYONE WITH AN INTEREST IN THIS COUNTRY'S POLITICS AND THE UP COMING ELECTION, TO LEARN AS MUCH ABOUT THE CANDIDATES...THE ONE'S YOU SUPPORT, AS WELL AS THOSE YOU OPPOSE. INFORMATION IS KEY! KNOWING WHO YOU'RE VOTING FOR AND HAVING A BROADER UNDERSTANDING OF THAT PERSON SHOULD BE ABSOLUTELY KEY TO FORMING YOUR OPINIONS.

AND IF CAN JUST SWYM FOR A SECOND: I THINK IT'S RIDICULOUS WHEN PEOPLE ATTEMPT TO DISCUSS POLITICS, EXPRESS THEIR POLITICAL OPINIONS AND ACT AS IF THEIR OPINION MATTERS WHEN THEY HAVEN'T EVEN TAKEN THE TIME TO TRULY UNDERSTAND WHAT'S GOING ON AROUND THEM. HAVEN'T ACTUALLY READ OR STUDIED UP ON ANYTHING REGARDING THE NUMEROUS CANDIDATES. READ NEWSPAPERS DAILY OR CATCH THE NEWS! VARIOUS NEWSPAPERS AND VARIOUS NEWS CHANNELS! THERE'S A TON OF INFORMATION SOURCES OUT THERE! USE THEM!
DON'T NECESSARILY BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ OR GET TOO CAUGHT UP IN OTHER PEOPLE'S PERSPECTIVES. USE THE INFORMATION AS A STARTING POINT, A GUIDE TO FORMING YOUR OWN OPINIONS AND SHAPING YOUR OWN PERSPECTIVES.
IF MORE PEOPLE WERE PAYING ATTENTION AND ACTUALLY TAKING THE TIME TO GET TO KNOW THE CANDIDATES...WE WOULDN'T STILL HAVE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS OUT THERE THINKING THAT BARACK IS AN UNPATRIOTIC, ANTI-AMERICAN MUSLIM!
