Aren't we tired of the media's and pundits suggestions that we bow down to the Palin sexist mess. We should call a lie a lie. This should motivate us beyond all bounds. These tatics are nothing less than reverse sexism and we should not sit still for any kind of sexism, regardless the gender it thrust upon. Obama and Biden are in my opinion being attack based on their gender and that is not okay. We should speak against any premise that attacks or restrains based on gender. In my opinion, we should not give one more second of our time watching any channel or reports that matches a VP Candidate from a opposing party against a Presidential Candidate. No one is matching Biden against McCain. This should stop. We should not allow pollsters that try to interject Obama/Palin polls, which are often not accurate at best. I will watch only those news stories that speak promdimately about the issues. I will NOT be a part of giving her free publicity and increasing news ratings at the our candidate's expense. Throughout this election, we have made noise and I am not about to be quiet now. Speak out Obama's grassroot supporters. Call a lie a lie. Call a fake a fake. Most importantly SCREAM WITH VOTES AND OUR VOICES. I stick closely to the audacity of Hope and the premise that Yes We Can!. We cannot play this game again. Our elderly is without. Our children are suffering. We are struggling. Our earth is parishing. Our finances are diminishing. Our infrastructure is tumbling and Our family members are dying in a war that never should have been. We can barely by food, drive, or even have a roof over our heads. Now, if all of this chaos doesn't ignite us to fight for a more efficient government then nothing will. We should continue to speak loudly and not allow one to tell us that it better for to be silent. Speak Loud and Clear. That that Sarah Palin does NOT relate to the average working mother/woman in America. We are not killing and eating Moose stew. We know very well the importance of comprehens ive affordable Health Care and Equal Pay for Equal Work. We work hard for our diginity and respect. We work hard for our families oftentimes with few resources. We struggle with REAL sexism, not this facade of sexism that the the Palin/McCain campaign is so clinging to these days. I disagree with those that say you cannot ask questions about her personal life. We know about Obama, the good and the no so good. We know about his sometimes troubled youth, we pounced on his religion/church, we questioned his patriotism. We questioned Hillary's motives and called her entitled. We questioned her methods. Talked about her personal relationship with Bill. So why is it that Palin is ammune to critiques and vetting by the public. She is planning on bringing herself and her challenges/problems in the White House. Why is it that we cannot ask her anything that really matters. Is that not sexism at it's worst.
What I see happening with Sarah Palin is an insult to Women all of the World. We are tough and we handle more than what the Republicans are trying to potray. Women, such as I, are not props for arrogant good ole boys, nor would we allow ourselves to be used as pawns. Palin in my opinion is not more than a Republican pawn, that will be tossed aside after she's served her purpose. She is taking woman back 100 years with this pitiful escapade. And, if this sounds sexist, we'll pardon me, but I am sorry, it takes more than a nice smile and pretty face to run a nation. By the way, I am a woman that deeply believes in respect of women's rights and women's issues. This is not sexism in no way, form or fashion. What I see is manipulation of the worst kind.
We should conduct ourselves with Class and Decorum. With that said, we have every right to ask and demand answers related to the issues and the people that plan to execute the nation's agenda. I say to ALL Voters, let's show them who holds the REAL POWER. Women stand forward and don't let this woman define what women stand for in America. Voter should stay focus and Charge ahead with vigilenance and determination. McCain with his Bush ideas is our problem. Palin nomination is our insult to intelligence.
