A note of encouragementSubmitted by porr on Wed, 10/17/2012 - 20:32
I just wanted to drop a quick note of encouragement on you all.
Over the last year I've had quite a few discussions about politics with my boss, who voted for Obama in 2008. Our conversations never got out of hand (I'm not much for arguing) but we exchanged views on a range of issues.
After these last two debates he told me that after our conversations about "wasting your vote" and the lack of distinction Obama and Romney have from each other, he's opting to vote for a third party candidate who shares more of his views. He said he doesn't think he can vote for Obama again.
Like I said, I've never been much for argument or debates. I certainly never thought I could change anyone's mind about Obama (not that Obama didn't do that all by himself ;) ). But somehow just telling someone else why you don't trust in the two-party machine can go a long way. It gives them permission to admit that they don't believe in it either.
Keep your chins up. Continue speaking the truth. The truth will set you free.
