Last week was an opportunity for Democrats to make a strong case for re-electing President Barack Obama. The reviews have been uplifting, progressive, and optimistic.
Obama knows how to relate to people; he has a good sense of humor and is full of self-confidence. It’s no big secret that Obama has a powerful story to tell about the change that’s happened over the past four years, so I was uber happy to hear him get swagged out about saving the auto industry, doubling renewable energy, raising educational standards, ending the war in Iraq and even killing that piece of shit guy we knew as Osama Bin Laden.
On a side note I would like to rewind back to Chicago, Illnois August 23,2012,where youth rallied outside President Obama's Chicago Campaign Head Quarters to break their silence on clean energy, climate and social environmental issues. They demanded to be heard as they demonstrated in their civil call of action. Two weeks later, at the Democratic National Convention, President Obama no longer stood in the background on climate change and environmental issues. He assured voters that he wants a future where we keep investing in wind and solar jobs, which will propel our economy. The words that really caught my attention were “I will not let oil companies write this countries energy plan or endanger our coast lines, or collect another 4 billion dollars in corporate welfare from our tax payers. We are offering a better path!”
Were never ones to toot our own horns…but we are excited to see Obama, acknowledge climate change and clean energy solutions. In the up coming months Americans are going to be looking towards his direction to continue his outline for clean energy and jobs.
So..my questions for you are: Did the convention do enough to excite those inclined to vote for Obama or sway the small percentage of undecided? Do you think young people should get involved in environmental issues? Why do you think it’s so important for young people to vote in this election? Take a look at the call of Action at Obama’s Chicago Head quarters along with President Obama's speech at the DNC. To Vote and show your support for Clean Energy please click here:
