Yes We Can

I've taken a little bit of flack for switching my party affiliation in order to vote in the Iowa caucus. My candidate of choice? Barack Obama.

For my entire life, I have been a staunch republican, but this year, I couldn't get behind a single republican candidate. If you had ever told me I'd be supporting a democratic candidate for our Commander in Chief, I would had thought you were beyond Britney crazy, however, my life is not what it once was. I'm in a different tax bracket then I expected, I'm a single mother of an "At-Risk" child, I struggle to find affordable healthcare for my child, and although I don't personally rely on public aid, I see the need for it, despite the broken system.

Mostly Barack makes a kick-ass video:

Jokes aside, I was moved by the video. Propaganda or not.

I was scanning channels tonight and came across Jesse Ventura on Larry King. He had a great line:

"Poor people have been voting democrat for 50 years now....and they're still poor"
