Allow myself to introduce… myself.
My name is Alex, I am a T-Man. I have two jobs and I work my ass off to get by. One of my jobs I love, the other I dread. But I need to work these two jobs to get by.
I love America.
I graduated from Penn State in 2001 with an IST/Computer Science degree and a minor in Marketing.
I should be able to find a great job anywhere in the U.S. with my talents and abilities, but because of outsourcing I am stuck working two jobs so I can afford rent and bills.
George W. Bush supports outsourcing and because of that I don’t support him. Of course there are many other reasons I don’t support George W. Bush.
What other reasons?
How about the gay marriage issue? I am a straight man, however, I have a lesbian friend and a gay friend. They are two normal professionals searching for love. One day I have no doubt these two will find love and want to get married. Do they not deserve that right? If not, who is the government to tell them they don’t deserve health coverage and to reap the other benefits of a civil union? According to George W.'s religious fundamentalism he believes they don’t deserve that right.
I am also an American that believes in my civil rights and my right to Privacy. The so-called Patriot Act is repulsive and the way the Bush Administration threw the Patriot Act together and took away my civil rights is disgusting. Yes, I realized John Kerry signed this, but I also believe that Kerry was wrong to sign it and that he signed it un-knowingly. I am willing to forgive him of this if he repeals it or amends it.
We need to be strong in this war on terror, but taking away my liberties is a win for terrorists if you ask me.
I am voting for Kerry. I will fight to help Kerry win. But most importantly I am fighting to get Bush out of the White House.
12 year old Ilana Wexler said it best at the DNC last week when she said that she wants to put Dick Cheney and George Bush “on a very long time-out.”
