If you are eligible to vote please, please do.
And please, vote for Obama.
Some of you may think this election has nothing to do with me. You would be wrong. What the USA does affects the entire world. Legislature passed in the US directly influences laws and attitudes in the rest of the western world.
And besides, I care about the people in the USA whose lives would be negatively affected if Mitt Romney were to be elected. For those who have somehow managed to miss the last few months of news this means:
All members of the LGBTQ community
Anyone who cannot afford healthcare
Anyone who cannot afford a college education
African Americans and Latino Americans
Anyone who believes in the rights of these people
Basically anyone who is not a rich white male.
If you value the civil and human rights of your friends, your mothers and fathers, your sisters and brothers and yourself. If you believe society must move forward not back.
Please vote. And please vote for Obama.
I don’t want to find out what Mitt Romney’s America would look like.
