I want you to want me

Today, I will vote in the primary. My vote will got to Barack Obama. I really can’t stand the idea of Bush – Clinton – Bush – Clinton.

With the underdog Giants winning the Super Bowl, I foresee Obama pulling off the upset on Super Tuesday.

Obama is by far the best public speaker I have ever witnessed live. I also met the Senator during his run for office a few years ago. My impression then was tall, thin, big smile, great voice. Now, that I’ve seen more of him I have another impression: presidential.

As my candidate, I have a few minor requests. Please kindly take these to heart.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will no longer use our military might as a fist.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will no longer use torture, keep secret prisons and will prosecute all persons involved.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will pull our troops from Iraq and allow that fledgling government to take care of themselves.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will capture Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice in an American court of law.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will overturn all “signing statements” created by the Bush Administration.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will spearhead legislation toward alternative energy resources and work toward reducing our dependency on oil from volatile countries.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will lead in the pursuit of scientific endeavors regardless of ideology and religious doctrine.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will lead in creating a healthcare system that works for all Americans utilizing the best parts of the universal health care systems in other industrialized countries.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will find the best minds to work on the economy and the federal income tax.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will no longer be embarrassingly behind in educational standards and you will double the Department of Education’s budget. You will either fund No Child Left Behind or eliminate it. You will aid all students attempting to go to college.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will work toward halting and reversing climate change.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will work toward eliminating illegal immigration.

I want you to tell all Americans and the world the United States of America will lead the world by example, not by rattling a sword.

Thank you.
