This thread is about voting for someone instead of Against someone. Please do not turn it into a Hillary versus Obama thread. And please keep it polite.
I am going to vote for John Edwards when our state finally comes around in March.
I realize that by that time it may be over. I realize by that time that John Edwards may be statistically out of the race.
But for once in this election year, I am going to vote FOR someone instead of AGAINST someone.
I can’t remember the last time I voted FOR someone, IF EVER!
I live in a Red State that will not go for either Hillary or Obama. (Persoanlly I believe John Edwards could win my Red state though). When I vote in November, I will be voting AGAINST someone NOT FOR someone. So it is important to me (at least) to take this primary season as my opportunity to vote FOR someone.
Perhaps this is why so many people don’t taking voting seriously. Perhaps this is why so many people really believe that there is no difference between the candidates.
Because they don’t have anyone to vote FOR.
So in March, regardless of the delegate status I am going to vote for Edwards. And I would like to encourage others out there to think about this when you are voting.
Are you voting For a candidate? Or are you voting against a candidate? How about looking FOR a candidate that best represents YOU and take this opportunity to vote FOR someone. It may be the only chance you get.
