“I'll put grape kool-aid in the drinking fountains...”
that was my campaign platform when running for school government president at elementary school.
no matter what side of the political fence you live on, you have to look at these debates and candidates with a grain of salt. would i have ever been able to put kool-aid in the drinking fountains...probably not. as an individual it would have been very difficult, if not nearly impossible. however, with a strong voice (in my case other 12-13 year olds) behind me, it might have been possible. at that is the important point in my opinion...who can you stand behind to support their vision?
the debates last night were helpful to me to see both candidates in front of each other. i love a good verbal lashing and thought there was plenty of that. i hope that you are registered to vote and voice your opinion in november. if you aren't, shame on you...seriously, shame on you. there is no reason why every person shouldn't exercise your voice and not let a single person control what you want.
i encourage you to look within yourselves, your lives and for the good of the country...and decide who you believe will be the best leader behind other powers of our government.
i watched the debates with a slight chuckle...as each said “i promise...i will...i can...” -- all the time thinking to myself...mmm....grape kool-aid
