Warning: Political opinions ahead.
I had $29 bouncing around in PayPal, and for a week or so had been debating what to buy.. Gun stuff, books, etc. – but hadn’t been able to decide on what to spend it on. Last night I finally spent it on stuff from store.barackobama.com.
This year is the first time that I’ve ever donated money or contributed to a political party, because this is the first year that I’ve seen a candidate that actually offers hope for the future. I’d previously donated $10.01 to his campaign back in February, and will be donating more before November.
In 2004, I switched parties and voted for Kerry simply because he was running against Bush. In 2008, I’m voting for the candidate that can pull us out of this mess.
