Why everybody should vote for Obama

The Mccainiacs put out commercials and videos full of lies and hate. The Obama campaign puts out videos like... this.

For what it's worth, I share Mr. Alexander's opinion of young people today. They're a pragmatic bunch, they were born into a collapsing nation where their future was likely to be grimmer than their parents or grandparents' before them and they had no time for all the starry-eyed nonsense of older generations, but they also have a practical idealism about them that's very down to earth and caring. They seem to "get it" instinctively that the Republican bullshit about "everybody for themselves" is a zero-sum game and that we're going to have to pull together and help each other out if we're going to survive the shitstorm that's coming. I just don't like the feeling I get that I have to apologize to them for the shitty situation we older generations are handing them...
