To my fellow Americans

Please please please don't forget to register to vote and go vote this year.

Even if you're an ex pat like me you can still register to vote with an absentee ballot go to that site and find out what you need to do to register.

I know it's a tedious task to ask of everyone to register but this is a very important election. We really need everyones help to change the country towards to better.

If you haven't watched this amazing speech given by Barrack Obama at the democratic convention you are missing out. This speech nearly had me in tears. I was agreeing with him on nearly everything. Plus he is just a really great speaker.

I watched John McCain's speech also but if i wasn't yelling obscenities at him then I was bored out of my mind. He is dull and fake.

Ever seen that movie, "The American President"? It wasn't the best movie ever made, by a long shot, but there was one piece of dialogue that I am continually reminded of when I think of both candidates' speeches:

Lewis Rothschild: People want leadership. And in the absence of genuine leadership, they will listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. They want leadership, Mr. President. They're so thirsty for it, they'll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there's no water, they'll drink the sand.

President Andrew Shepherd: Lewis, we've had Presidents who were beloved who couldn't find a coherent sentence with two hands and a flashlight. People don't drink the sand 'cause they're thirsty. They drink the sand 'cause they don't know the difference.

Registration is a good idea, even for cynics. :)
