I know it's been a while since you got a gem from the vault...but I'm reopening the doors so the treasures can flow.
Are there any voters out there? This presidential election is both exciting and scary. It's exciting to see two democratic candidates that feel very passionately about the issues they are supporting, but it's also scary to know that the nation could possibly vote another Republican into office. With so many problems that need to be addressed in the United States, there is a lot of talk about continued spending in the war on terror. These hundreds of billions of dollars and prescious lives that are at risk fighting a "threat" could possibly add relief to the millions of underpriveledged Americans who would use these funds to maintain a family environment in our own country.
It's time for a change, and I urge everyone reading to vote....voice your opinion.
There are many topics being discussed that directly affect the well-being of most lower to middle class Americans. Listen to what our presidential candidates intend to do to better our country and the welfare of everyone in our country. It is your job to educate yourself through any media available, to fight for what you believe in.
This country is at an economic low, and the only way to rise out of this deficit is to promote change. Given the opportunity, George W. Bush increased military spending, cut federal money to college students and proposed tax cuts for the upper class. What does this mean for you? Well if you're a middle class American, and you want to go to school, there is little to no federal grant money available, which means you would need to take out student loans to pay for school, or ask you rich Uncle Scrooge. This degree will hopefully land you in a career in your field where you will earn a moderate wage with atleast health benefits. After you graduate, you must begin to repay the $30,000 you borrowed to go to school, with additional interest. This will end up costing you significantly more than you borrowed, and will also raise a red flag on your credit report. This can prevent you from taking out home loans, auto loans, and many other sources of money that you may need to survive.
With the election coming up, the democratic candidates are fighting hard to level the playing field for advancing in society. Under the presidency of Barack Obama, every American will have the opportunity to get $4,000 a year towards tuition to a college or university, every American will have health care, and we will begin to see an end to the war against terror.
It's our country, as a people, and it's time we took it back.
Thanks for reading, comments are welcomed. Don't forget to vote!
