next presidential election, i’m voting green. yes, green party.
that is, unless, al gore runs democrat (or maybe he’ll run green?).
he is adamant about something that i truly have strong convictions about: the environment. i’ve believed global warming is happening since 3rd grade. my family recycled all their lives. i feel bad when i let water run. i take quick showers. if i had the money, i would buy a hybrid or E85 vehicle, not for the gas savings (because there isn’t that much, if any), but for the lower emissions.
i don’t care about those stupid wedge issues. i am not a wedge voter. gay marriage and abortion? pfft. i don’t really care. the gay thing will work itself out, and no one will really put an end to abortion (not republicans; if they finally make it illegal, they’ll never win another election). i care about a) the environment and b) funding for poor people.
if i had the money, i would see an inconvenient truth in the theaters, but i’m going to wait til it comes out on dvd. i hear it’s a great movie. recently, there was a special on the discovery channel about global warming, and they said in the documentary that up to 2000, there was doubt among scientists about global warming, but now almost every expert is on board; there is undeniable proof. what they had to say kind of scared me. they had pictures of glaciers in glacier park from the early-mid 1900s that are now completely melted.
sure, you may think that it still doesn’t exist. i respect that. i think you’re wrong, but you can think that.
i think if dems have a chance at all in the next election, it has to be someone who will truly make a difference about something instead of hemming and hawing. come on mr. gore!! he has a better chance of winning than hillary in 2008.
