Common Has No Faith in the Political System, Still Supports Obama

In an interview with OkayplayerTV, Common Hussein Sense lays out the grounded, logical reasons why he is voting for Barack Obama for President. His straightforwardness about his distrust in the political system and his assessment that Obama is the candidate that he sees really trying to do good for people is spot on. He keeps it real, emphasizing that the only way to affect what's going on politically is to do your part by voting.

"We can't wait on the political system but [we] can influence the political system..."

It's been a long haul and we're all experiencing election fatigue. All that's left for us to do now is vote. That's all. Change is coming. Get on board with Common, and with those of us who've already cast our ballots so that come Wednesday there at least a little bit of our faith in the political system can be restored. [OKP]

  1. Amen! I know I'm exhausted. I've cast my vote with a smile on my face. At last, someone to vote FOR and not AGAINST.

  2. I am always glad to vote. This is my 2nd election, and I may have been the only one to feel good about voting FOR someone rather than AGAINST someone. Thankfully, I have paid attention and check facts on the candidates, rather than believe the media lies/spin. Both times.

  3. And yes, I did vote for Obama!

  4. It would take the winning candidate AT LEAST 10 years in Presidency to make any noticable change. So, people should not be disillusioned into expecting too much so soon. Even after 4 years, why is it that the public always wonder why their lives haven't changed dramatically after voting for the President of their choice.
    I do have a lot of respect for Common, who is a realist.
    Obama can't change the political system.
    But, we (by voting him in) can (or the hope is, he might be able to) INFLUENCE the policitcal make changes...for the better.
    BO appears to have the right intentions. So, he gets my vote. But, I'm also aware that all politicans (or people trying to gain power or win you over) are "actors". Like salesmen. They HAVE TO BE convincing, otherwise how do they make the sale/get the vote?
    I'm voting for BO, not to stop someone else getting in. I'm voting because a) 'not voting' isn't an option, and b) there isn't anybody else worth voting for. Rotten food or acceptable food. Which one?!
    I don't agree with all of his policies but, what are ya gonna do?!
