The Promised Land - Michael Moore

Although if I were American I'd vote for Mccain but I loved the way Moore is putting it.



The Promised Land ...a message from Michael Moore

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

Friends,

Tomorrow.

All of us.

You, me, and everyone we know.

Eight years is enough. Eight weeks was enough.

We have a chance to redeem this country, to prove we're better than this, that which Bush has made of us.

McCain is right about one thing: Barack Obama is the most liberal senator in the United States Senate. More liberal than Ted Kennedy. When was the last time you had a chance to send the MOST liberal senator to the White House? Trust me, it won't happen again in our lifetime.

Every vote is critical -- even in hard red states like Texas and Alabama; and true blue ones like New York, California and Michigan. Tomorrow, we need to create a massive popular vote that will give Obama a stunning mandate to return this country to we, the people. Let's write one for the history books and rocket Obama into the White House.

Expect trouble tomorrow. Stand your ground. Don't let some clerk turn you away. Make noise. Call the media if they won't let you vote. Let the Obama camp know. Check out his Voter Protection Center. Know where your polling place is. Be careful inside the voting booth. The ballot still reads like a Sudoku puzzle. Be prepared for long lines. That's ok, you know how to bring the party with you! Make new friends. Plot your local revolution. The 28-year rule of Republicans (and Democrats who act like Republicans) is over. The Reagan Era dies tomorrow night. My God, I truly thought it would never end.

There are over a million of you on my list. Each of you know 5 or 10 people who may not vote. Offer to drive them to the polls. If they live across the country, call them and tell them how much it means to you that they go vote for Obama. Take your co-workers to lunch -- and to vote. Be creative. Come up with ways to convince the undecided to get their decided on and go vote. Make it fun. Lead the horse to water.

60 seats in the Senate!

30-seat increase in the House!

President Obama!

It's in your hands. The Promised Land.

  1. May be its a good idea if you explain why you would vote for McCain.

    Then again, it may not be such a good idea.

  2. Seriously ? You'd vote for McCain if you had the chance ? I guess we area all entitled to our own opinions (even the hypothetical ones)

    So what was the tipping point for you ? His amazing middle east vision ? or his real genuine concern for peace in the region ? or his awesome surrogates that have respected our faith and ethnicity and not turned it into an attack point ? I am not saying that Obama is 100% better on this, but of the two he seems to be better and/or more sensible for the region.

    Or maybe i failed to see the sarcasm :-)

  4. To me it makes no difference to whom I vote. Because whomever I choose, will be an American gentle at the end of the day !!!!!!
    >> The second point is that if one of them was slightly better than the other one… then we (Arabs) will persist to make our countries to continue at the same very terrible level & in the same very terrible situation
