I promise I only bite when provoked or requested. Light Of My Eyes

"Judge a man not on how he treats his equals, but on how he treats his inferiors." ~ J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. 

I am not an American citizen. In fact, nothing I do or say will have any influence over the voting of the 2012 election, but I have been following it rather closely, like many people around the world. 

Neither candidates are perfect. Both have flaws which the other is happy to exploit. When both options are politically undesirable, I look towards the person whom I would be giving power too. Not all of Obama’s policies are perfect. Not all of his decisions are agreeable. But he is, in a world of postured words and glassy smiles, the more genuine man.

I work in hospitality. I am surrounded by people who would look down upon me because of my job, without knowing who I am, or the fact that I work just as hard in my schooling, that I volunteer with special needs children, or that I try to be a good person. I know what it is like to be treated as though I am inferior, simply because of my job choice. And if Mitt Romney and Barack Obama were simply ordinary citizens, who came into my cafe to order a coffee, I know who I would thank me and who wouldn’t; who would smile and who would rush me; who would treat me like a person, and who would treat me like servant. 

It seems pretty simple; if you wouldn’t want to serve Mitt Romney coffee, why would you want him running your country? 

Vote Obama.
