We Are The Ones

In today’s Music Monday post, I am putting in another shameless plug for a political candidate that I support, but as before, I don’t want to tell people who they should vote for, I just want to tell people to be politically active.

With the mid term elections coming up soon, it is important that people keep in mind what the real issues are. Don’t just look at bland rhetoric and campaign promises that won’t be kept. Take a moment to look at who will do the most good (or at the very least who will do less harm).

people say Obama’s words are just words…
but…
when was the last time “words” weren’t important…???…

when was the last time a great leader didn’t use words to lead…??…
when was the last time a person didn’t use words to describe how they felt…?…
when was the last time “words” weren’t empowering…?…

and we can all recall the last time “words” were used to divide us and install fear…

Bush used words to fear us into voting for him the second time around…
terror this…
terror that…
nuclear here…
weapons of mass destruction there…

and those words effected a lot of people’s choices…

“enough is enough”…
let’s rebuild…

let’s change ourselves…
let’s allow positivity to guide us…

let’s take action….
let’s activate our passion…
we are Americans….

and this is the first time in forever that someone running for president represents “US”…

some say this is all excitement…
I call it “proud to be an American”…

some say this whole Obama movement is “cult like”…
well…
if it comes across cult like…
then…
the cult is called America…

the Obama movement is connecting America.
and it has made “US” realize our importance…
the youth is excited and activated…
adults are passionate and motivated…
the elderly are proud to know the country they built is in safe hands…

we are one…

for too long politics has been corrupt…
separate from the American people…
with agendas that go against what the American people “need”…
education…
health…
safety…
jobs
etc…

politicians have spoken a different language…
making it so the youth and poor people feel as if voting was only for the wealthy and old people…
making “US” feel as if “we” had no voice…
making “US” feel powerless…
making it feel like if “we” did vote it wouldn’t change anything…

but wait…
that did happen…
some of us voted, and it didn’t change anything…

we were in the dark…
we had no voice…
we were powerless…

because America was not a united America…
and “they” spoke a different language…
and they had an agenda different from our well being…

correct me if I’m wrong… or speak up if I’m missing something…

we want education, health, safety, and good jobs…right???…
oh yeah…
and “a healthy planet to live on”…

but here we are…

in a war… poor education… poor health programs… the dollar is down… the planet, polluted…
the rich, richer… and the poor, struggling…
with sky high gas prices to top it all off…

and now even the rich aren’t really rich internationally because our dollar is has fallen so far down…

in our slumber… a very small few got really rich…

because when you’re sleeping…

“it’s hard to change agendas”…

we know what happened in 2000 and 2004…
but in 2008…
it’s different…

we are awake…
and there is a movement…

and “it’s hard to change a movement”…

last time “we” didn’t have a movement…
America wasn’t united…

and now “United and “Standing”…for something…
we know the power of “US”…
and we have a person who represents the “U.S.”…

“US”…

“we are the ones we’ve been waiting for”…

I’m proud to be an American…

will.i.am
