As Hillary Rodham Clinton concedes and endores Barack Obama, the thought quickly enters my head. "Are we ready?" I know I am, and I would vote for any Democrat these days due to rising gas prices and an even steeper cost of college. Though, as a senior in High School I begin to look out across my lunch room and see the still segregated tables. While this country is integrated, I don't think we will ever fully embrace one another.
I have to say, I'm not the biggest advocate of acceptance of race or ethnicity, but if you fight for what you believe in, if you believe that you are going to change the way the world runs for the better, I am your biggest companion. This is what Obama does for me, he doesn't use the race card to get him elected, instead he uses his positions to get him elected.
As time goes on, we begin to lose faith in who we are, and what we are as a country. Founded on principals of freedom, only in the 21st centuary to get them raped from us, and from our countrymen. No matter your political party, no matter your race, no matter your religion, we must unite on a cold Tuesday in November, for this country, for the world.
No matter if you believe in the policies of John McCain, or Barack Obama, we must understand what is needed of this country in the forthcoming years. We must understand that we must use our given rights as citizens to vote, and we must these wisely and believe when we punch that button in our fake voting machines that eventually will turn into the other party, we are pressing for someone we believe in that will change this country for the better.
You as an individual do not have to contribute to a campaign, do not have to volunteer for a campaign, but you an individual have to vote. You have to, even if it may not count, or your ass backwards Electorial College switches your votes, you still need to exhibit your right, and keep this country rolling.
In the end, we are all lost, but we have a common thread. We are Americans, and no Muslim, no oil junky, no crackhead can take that from us, and no one ever will if you believe in this nation and believe in your right to vote.
