Republican Distraction

The Republican strategy during this election has been a stroke of genius. They know damn well that they can't focus on issues or candidate integrity, so what's left for them to do?

Shock and awe.

You all remember that catch phrase from the beginning of the Iraq debacle right? That's the strategy where everything but the kitchen sink is thrown at the target with the intent to illicit feelings of "shock and awe." Which is exactly what the GOP campaign is doing in their desperate attempt to deceive the American public into thinking that their candidates are the better choice.

However, reality paints a far different picture. One would have to be half blind and stupid to believe the rhetoric coming from the right and to be quite honest, I am offended as an American that they would think we are so stupid to fall for this pathetic gimmicky ploy.

But I have to give the devil his due. Looking around at the various political blogs and websites, I am disturbed to see the majority of the discussion about the Republican candidates and little about the Obama/Biden ticket, the true party of change.

But to ignore the things coming out of the GOP camp would be irresponsible. So what does an Obama supporter like me do to stay focused on the issues? Things like our disastrous economy, the occupation of Iraq, the skyrocketing price of fuel and escalating jobless statistics, just to name a few.

You see, the Republicans can't focus on these issues because they are responsible for these problems. History of both GOP candidates proves that beyond a shadow of a doubt, despite the term of change they pirated from the Obama/Biden campaign. The only change the GOP ticket represents is a change in leadership with the same failed policies of the previous administration. The same continued stripping away of Constitutional rights in the name of the "war on terror." The same fear tactics. The same lies and deceit.

The same.

The same.

The same.

Hasn't the American citizens had enough of "the same"?

Hasn't the American citizens had enough of the same substandard education for our children that represent our future? Haven't we had enough of the same outsourcing of jobs to foreign countries that produce substandard goods? Haven't we had enough of the uncontrolled and unmonitored funding of an illegal occupation of a once sovereign nation? Haven't we had enough of $4 a gallon gas? Haven't we had enough of slave wages offered to workers? Haven't we had enough of increased taxation?

Haven't we had enough?

So the next time you find yourself having a political conversation, and the subject turns to the GOP candidates, turn the tables and sing the praises of the real and true American candidates for the executive branch. Talk about Obama, Biden and the issues. Don't be sidetracked by the distractions and spin coming from the right.

Keep your eye on the prize, as the old song goes, and do your part, as an American, to restore the greatness of this country and help elect Barack Obama and Joe Biden as our next President and Vice President of the United States.

The choice isn't that difficult. If you like the way things have been over the last eight years, cast your vote toward the Republicans. But if you are broke, busted and disgusted by the travesty of the Bush administration and the criminal Republican Party, vote for change.

Vote Obama.
