Going All Out for Barrack Obama

Are you guys in the US going to vote?

I'm rooting for Barrack. I hope he wins. The world is tired of the bullying by the US and its unilateral pursuit of global policies. Now, it's not only world peace that has been threatened but the global economy too! The Bush Administration brought about all of these. Barrack offers CHANGE and I hope he succeeds!

I'm curious about the "voting in advance" thing. When can one vote ahead of the Nov 4 elections, as many have done as reported in the CNN?

I hope that in 2010, just like Bush's, a Gloria endorsement would spell the doom of her chosen successor (who would it be?). We are also fed up with the corruption, lies, and all efforts to hide the truth from the public. But our threshold level for tolerance seem to have gone up. The series of corruptions without anybody being held accountable have already jaded us. Our capacity for anger seem to have been lost.

Hi Toti,

Actually, I just came home from the polling place where
I"m registered to vote. The place is just across my house and I never expected that the voters turnout this time is tremendous. I have lived in my house here in Orlando for almost twenty years now and this is the first time I saw this kind of turn out of voters. Majority in my subdivision are Republicans. These are the older white people. So you don't normally see this kind of excitement and enthusiasm on an election, even Presidential one. But after 2004, when Bush got reelected because Gore lost in Florida for just few hundreds of votes, notwithstanding those questionable "questioned votes" for Gore, we learned our lessons. One vote is very important. That's why the 2 to 3 hours waiting in line just to vote is not a concern. Those who wanted to make sure that they will not miss out to vote comes election day, they voted early. One week before election day, you can already cast your vote. They normally have it in a Public Library. Millions and Millions of voters actually voted early. Those who are not in their polling places come election day, they can also do an absentee voting. They mail their votes.
The election process here is something that if you are a student of Democracy, it is a sight to behold. There are flaws every now and then, but still it, is something that can be envied by other democratic countries like the Philippines.
I was on line for more than two hours, but it doesn't matter. I wanted to voice out my sentiment to the issues we are facing today and by voting for OBAMA (you are reading it right Toti), just like your wish and so with other citizens of a lot of countries as well, we need CHANGE and for me, Obama is the right President who can bring these changes.

Congratulations Danny! How elections are run there is really amazing.
If it were in the Philippines, only the counting at the precinct level
would have been completed. Canvassing would just be starting and would
take more than month to complete it.... unless, we finally have
automated voting in 2010, as successfully tested in the last ARMM

And may the CHANGE Barack promised come to reality. I just hope he doesn't end up just like the other black leaders in the US. May God and the Americans protect him.

Hello all,

Just been watching the early returns. WoW!

Now I believe that we can all see a future of real change.
For the next generation it is surely going to be a better world.
How great it is to be around to see the re-emergence of values. Whether they remain only time will tell but America is now a very different place.

May God continue to bless us all....

Lots of hugggssss........

Hi Toti and Ed,

By around 11:00 pm Eastern Standard Time last night, Barack Obama was declared the winner and becomes the 44th US President. Five hours after I voted, he was declared a winner. Can you imagine that? More than 120,000,000
voted and five hours after you have a winner. If this can only be done in the Philippines, perhaps real democracy will exist there if you know what I mean.

I used to say that the Philippines is the window of democracy in Asia - but I'm wrong. A country is a democratic country not because they have elections every two years or four years. The real sense of democracy is when the
elected representatives were actually elected legitimately by the people, not through guns and goons, vote buying or fraud. But before the Philippines can achieve this feat, Filipinos should first have "DISCIPLINE". I'm sorry
to say this, but because I had the opportunity to experience voting there and here in the US, I have seen the difference. It should not be this case since Filipinos are supposed to be matured politically by now - they have all the dressings of a democratic country like Senate hearings, Blue ribbon
committee, House debates that are televised, Ombudsman, Supreme Court, etc,etc.. is it working? You have EDSA 1,2,3 & 4 I think, people's march, and what more .. the only thing missing is the sincerity, the desire to really attain changes, the maturity ( hindi para magkaroon ng kasiyahan or para walang pasok), the commitment to the desired change being asked and of course discipline. Once these are present - changes will happen. We just
elected the first Black American President. Americans wanted changes, they came together, look beyond the color of the skin and we are on to CHANGES...
