America, get out there and VOTE!

Some of you might be wondering why I’ve been proactive in campaigning for Barack Obama lately in spite of me being a citizen of the third world living in the Philippines. Well, Barack’s life story is very inspiring and his speeches never fail to move me. I’ve kept track of him for months and I truly believe he is what America *and* the world needs. In my country, the same corrupt politicians and their equally
despicable nepotistic families and cronies have stayed in power for generations… If he wins this election, not only he writes history in America but he also proves to the world that there is hope and true change is possible. I could only dream for
a leader like him to come into the picture and bring what his values and what he stands for in my nation.

Earlier this year, I was brought to tears by THIS photo essay by Callie Shell for Time Magazine. Callie followed Obama for months during campaign season. It’s this exact photo feature that got me obsessed.

Barack Obama
Nov. 7, 2007. – I loved that he cleaned up after himself before leaving an ice cream shop in Wapello, Iowa. He didn’t have to. The event was over and the press had left. He is used to taking care of things himself and I think this is one of the qualities that makes Obama different from so many other political candidates I’ve encountered.

I’m calling upon my USA-based readers (who are American citizens) who comprise 56% of my readership to vote for someone who, could not only CHANGE one of the most powerful nations on Earth but also the world at large (whether directly or indirectly).

America, please vote for change. Please vote for Barack Obama today.

Thank you.
