Wendy, Why Obama?

Oh for the love of flaming hot cheetos!
People continue to ask, “wendy, why do you support Obama so much? I cant believe that you, of all people, believe in his rhetoric, you the Comm person, you the feminist, you the chicana all star, you the girl from East LA.” and worse, “it’s a cult! You are in the Obama cult! I’m going to pray for you”
Por please!
The thing is, people make this super complicated. It’s not. Check out this video. Fresh out of the digital world, 2 hours old.
You tell me me why, after all this is said and done, why you DONT support this man.

For those of you that are genuinely asking, thank you for writing and aking for my opinion. 🙂
As far as why I support him, you can read all about it HERE in the last couple of paragraphs… but I think Will.I.Am says it best.

People say Obama’s words are just words…but…when was the last time “words” weren’t important…???…when was the last time a great leader didn’t use words to lead…??…when was the last time a person didn’t use words to describe how they felt…?…when was the last time “words” weren’t empowering…?…and we can all recall the last time “words” were used to divide us and install fear…Bush used words to fear us into voting for him the second time around…terror this…terror that…nuclear here…weapons of mass destruction there…and those words effected a lot of people’s choices…”enough is enough”…let’s rebuild…let’s change ourselves…let’s allow positivity to guide us…let’s take action….let’s activate our passion…we are Americans….and this is the first time in forever that someone running for president represents “US”…some say this is all excitement…I call it “proud to be an American”…some say this whole Obama movement is “cult like”…well…if it comes across cult like…then…the cult is called America…the Obama movement is connecting America.and it has made “US” realize our importance…the youth is excited and activated…adults are passionate and motivated…the elderly are proud to know the country they built is in safe hands…we are one…for too long politics has been corrupt…separate from the American people…with agendas that go against what the American people “need”…education…health…safety…jobsetc…politicians have spoken a different language…making it so the youth and poor people feel as if voting was only for the wealthy and old people…making “US” feel as if “we” had no voice…making “US” feel powerless…making it feel like if “we” did vote it wouldn’t change anything…but wait…that did happen…some of us voted, and it didn’t change anything…we were in the dark…we had no voice…we were powerless…because America was not a united America…and “they” spoke a different language… and they had an agenda different from our well being… correct me if I’m wrong… or speak up if I’m missing something… we want education, health, safety, and good jobs…right???… oh yeah…and “a healthy planet to live on”…but here we are…in a war… poor education… poor health programs… the dollar is down… the planet, polluted…the rich, richer… and the poor, struggling…with sky high gas prices to top it all off…and now even the rich aren’t really rich internationally because our dollar is has fallen so far down…in our slumber… a very small few got really rich…because when you’re sleeping…”it’s hard to change agendas”…we know what happened in 2000 and 2004…but in 2008…it’s different…we are awake…and there is a movement…and “it’s hard to change a movement”…last time “we” didn’t have a movement…America wasn’t united…and now “United and “Standing”…for something…we know the power of “US”…and we have a person who represents the “U.S.”…”US”…”we are the ones we’ve been waiting for”…I’m proud to be an American…

    Yes a Comm major should know that a slick video designed with the right ‘cool’ voices, in the right keys and chords will make you believe anything.
    A Chicana should know that you need to pay your dues before you get props. A couple of months of pretty speeches is not paying dues.
    I’m not saying don’t vote for him, I’m just hoping you don’t get your heartbroken when he gets in and forgets all he said and made you believe.
    Yeah, like Will.i.am is going to be invited to up the white house lawn parties, right.

    A Comm major also knows the importance of visual work to motivate masses. Identity in our tech world is important. A Chicana can also appreciate how a Black kid born to a teenage mom, whose dad left him and mother died can be instilled good morals by his grandparents. A Chicana can also understand how a community organizer can later run for the highest position our country has to offer and that the so-called-months of pretty speeches can be traced back to years and years of public service. Dont be mad that Obama can inspire through words, just like certain people I know, are inspired by music. And yes, I’m looking forward to Will.I.Am being invited to the white house.
