I’m on my Political soap box today. I am so tired of this Presidential Election!!!
However, I am even more tired of hearing that if Barack Obama doesn’t win it is because he is African American. Well, personally, it is going to be so hard for me to go in and vote for my party's Presidential choice, but I will, and it is not because Obama is African American. I would give ANYTHING to be able to vote for any of these 3 men instead of McCain!!! If you don’t know who they are, look them up and see if you don’t agree with me! They all should have at least been considered as a VP choice.
First Choice: Michael Steele-Former Lt Governor of Maryland, graduate of Georgetown University Law School and spent 3 years as a seminarian in the Order of St. Augustine in preparation for the priesthood. Successfully worked in the private sector as a corporate lawyer. He is one of the highest ranking African-American Republicans elected to public office.
Second Choice: JC Watts-Played football and graduated from University of Oklahoma. Played in the Canadian Football league after which he became a Baptist Youth Minister before going into politics. Was a Congressman for Oklahoma from 1995-2003. By the way, JC stands for Julius Caesar but that is not the reason he is so impressive!
Third Choice: Walter Williams-Now I will first say he is not in Politics but he would make a GREAT cabinet member. He is an Economist Extraordinaire!!! He is also very eloquent. I love hearing him on the radio when he substitutes sometimes.
Let me know what you think!
