To me, politics means I don't have to watch baseball.
Freedom, rights, responsibility – voting means I take nothing for granted.
For the first time, a leader for the future, Obama.
The issues in this nation and the people fixing them.
DNC help by media robbed us of the best candidate.
Politics is the art of the possible and the science of government.
Refining future leaders; ushering hopeful action vs. greed and self-interest.
Obama '08 !!!!
1) how dumb a lot of Americans are
2) the hope we could do better
thats what they mean to me
Doesn't matter who wins, we'll all loose in the end.
The right for everyone to be proud of being wrong.
Politics means that you can give information to the enemy and still run for President.
232 years after we won independence from Great Britain, I get to vote for someone who looks like me.
I am so proud of my country right now.
With Obama, the world will see America as a leader.
"Politics" and "Voting" helps keep a "...Government by the people."
it means someone serving others, speak for them and work for them... it better be.
Somewhere over the horizon is a timeline for political change,
The mechanism to lead people to the very right direction.
Good lord ,get it over with!
Obama = Socialism
McCain = Out of Touch
I don't know the full definition of politics, but I am grateful for one thing, term limits.
Obama in '08
It means courage to do good for all Americans.
Forget polls and pundits I make up my own mind
"All fired up and, ready to evolve!"
Politics and Politicians are very important, until some politician calls me a whiner and that I belong to a nation of whiners.
OBAMA (2008 -16)
