Just Vote!

This morning I was watching "The View" and Sherri Shepard announced that she was still undecided. I was on twitter and posted said information - lets just say that the replies were something else.

duriechee @CathrynMarie Sherri still black?

TheJennTaFur @CathrynMarie WHAT? I do not value her opinion at all but that really is surprising to me that there are still people who are undecided =(

mdsteelergal @cathrynmarie Ok, plz don't tell me that. I mean, I know this is petty, but her non-decisiveness is about to make me chg my VIEW of her! :-)

mdsteelergal @cathrynmarie I mean really. What more is there to know? Do you want to stay where we are, or move forward? Progression, not recession.

The replies above suggest that being a black woman, Sherri shouldn't be undecided & should just KNOW who to vote for. The last two are pretty wide open - suggesting possibly with only days left she should have some idea - which I can agree with. I do not however agree with everyone assuming every black person should be voting for Obama. It urks me that people talk to me like Obama is who I should be voting for - its like being in high school and having that peer pressure. (Please see SHERRI SHEPHERD IS THE DUMBEST BLACK WOMAN ON EARTH)

EyanJ @CathrynMarie i'm still undecided too

JDakar @CathrynMarie She's not the only one

I was someone who wasn't feelin Obama mainly because of this bull crap Robin Hood theory he has; take from the rich, give to the poor. Come on now - how does that show UNITY & HOPE? Obama "fans" say "the tax increase will only affect the upper class" - I live in a city where EVERYONE is tryin to GET IT. Everyone is in "the industry" - say you become that Puffy or that Jay Z - you worked your ass off to get there and now its taken away from you. People aren't thinking about his theories & what he is trying to do because he is some type of Rock Star. None of that money is going to you lower class people - yes YOU (lol).

TheflyGirl @rahiemshabazz Martin, Malcom, Rosa, Medger, Emmitt, Harriett, Nat, Thurgood, Sydney, Jackie...Enough reasons for you

Really? What in the hell has Obama done to put him in the category as these people? Hell, Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton have fought for African American rights more than Obama has - what has he given back besides run for office? The people listed above were not politicians, they are people who have fought for black people. Obama's Robin Hood theory is NOT catering to any of the lower class - a class most of the people listed above took a stand for. *blink*

Ben Stein said it BEST last night while on Craig Ferguson show

I know I probably piss people off with my thinking - oh well. I mean, when it comes down to it I submitted by vote last Thursday (did I mention I voted along side Shane Battier of the Houston Rockets *woop*) & it was straight Democrat - I'm not rich, so its what I am. My boss, a lady who is very well in the upper class, stated that she was voting for Obama because she didn't want to be the one vote who didn't vote for the black man - this was stated after I asked her if she were worried about being taxed up the ass by the man who is Senator to the State w/ the highest tax (10.25%).

sugarlips I don't buy this "undecided voter" B.S. I think people are just afraid to voice their true opinion.

CathrynMarie @sugarlips I totally agree w/ that. the ? if who r u voting 4 is too public now & its pressure if ure not rollin w/ "majority"

sugarlips @CathrynMarie exactly. I think it's the answer to avoid the debate, cuz ppl can't keep their mouth shut

CathrynMarie @sugarlips very tru. Im tellin u, we grew up n an era when you nvr asked a woman her age or asked who someone is voting for. lmao

It's just days left to cast your vote, if you haven't already, don't let majority or pressure be your deciding factor. I am COMPLETELY proud of the change Obama has ignited thus far - rather it be people voting for the first time to vote him in or out, it is indeed a great accomplishment alone. McCain actually all that bad, I don't think he plans to be EXACTLY like Bush, but he may favor some likeness. He is placed in that box because he's a Republican and we were screwed by a Republican for 8 years.

Everyone says it, but I don't think they MEAN it - so I'm going to say it and MEAN it! WHOM EVER YOU VOTE FOR, IT DOESN'T MATTER! Just continue to keep this momentum going and get out there and vote. Don't let someone else get in your head and decide for you.

Defsounds God damn it, Why does everyone I meet think they're an Obama Campaign expert. STFU about it already <== that ish is sooo true, LOL.

Most of ya'll are "Joe The Plumber's" Stop frontin!

LOL @ Joe being a no show 2 the McCain rally today - had John lookin an ass.

“Joe’s with us today. Joe, where are you?” McCain called the into the crowd, “Where’s Joe? Is Joe here with us today? Joe, I thought you were here today (pause) All right, well, you’re all Joe the plumber, so all of you stand up and say – I thank you" - John McCain - source

I think at this point everyone pretty much knows who they are going to vote for. There is no changing minds, so people just need to stop the talking and go vote.

Let's see what Nov. 5 brings.
