Obama for President
October 21, 2008
Last week, I received my ballot for the upcoming election. This is very exciting to me as this will be the first time ever that I get to vote in a federal election. You see, even though I've been living in the USA for nearly 20 years, I only became a citizen a couple of years ago.
For the past months, I've been paying quite a bit of attention to the race. I've watched all the debates, listened to many interviews and educated myself to make sure I'd make the best possible choice. My decision is made and there's no doubt in my mind that it's the right one.
On a side note, I'd like to say that I am completely disgusted by the latest tactics of the republican party to try and smear Obama's reputation by linking him to terrorists and avoid talking about the issues. If they wanted to win new converts, they've failed miserably as far as I'm concerned. I'll be glad to cast my vote for Obama and I encourage all my American friends to do the same.
