So what if Obama is or was Muslim. I have a friend that moved here a few years ago, with her family from Afganastan. She is Muslim. And she is also the nicest person you could possibly meet. Her whole family is very nice. And as a matter of fact, she is one of the most popular girls in school. Just because we have a war going on and there were wars before does not mean that other people from other countries and continents are all bad. They have hearts too. Everybody who is saying that we are all at risk if Obama is elected needs to get over themselves. Who says we aren't going to be at risk is McCain is elected? Everybody is judging Obama, but how well do you know McCain?! You all just assume since he's white, not Muslim, is from America.. he's better. That's not true.

Honestly, you don't know who to believe. They could both be lying about a lot of things. So don't only judge Obama. They are both going to say what they think you want to hear. At least Obama is being himself, for the most part, and doing what he wants to do. McCain is just a clone of Bush. He wants to follow in Bush's footsteps. We want a leader, not a follower.

Don't judge people by their religion. It's wrong. It's just ridiculous. We are a free country, while other countries are slaves, being tortured, starving, etc. and here we are worrying about what religion someone is, the color of their skin, etc. It doesn't matter, we're all humans, we all have hearts.
