Dear Mr. Obama
I found this video on YouTube, along with over 11 million other people.
It’s only about two minutes long, but it’s the most powerful commercial I’ve seen in this election season. I’m an issues voter, meaning that I support candidates that share my opinions on certain issues and not simply because of the candidate himself (or herself). I’m also probably a make-or-break voter, meaning that there are certain issues that if a candidate’s beliefs don’t line up with my own, then I can’t vote for him (or her). The abortion issue is probably the biggest deal-breaker for me.
It’s clear that Barack Obama does not understand the War in Iraq or even the United States military. He has an obvious disdain for the military and so it’s no wonder that a survey done by the US military (incorporating members from each branch of the service – Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and Marines) found that service men and women support John McCain more than 3 to 1.
If I’m supporting the candidate that’s being endorsed by over 75% of the people that fight and sacrifice to defend the freedoms that I have, I can sleep easy at night.
