John Edwards recently announced he was running for the Democratic nomination for president in 2008.
He has the energy, passion and vision to lead this country into an era of change that is drastically needed.
The reality is there are two different Americas, and it is tearing apart the fabric of this country. My grandfather worked hard delivering bread and was able to provide well for his wife and kids and buy a new home and new cars.
In today's society, an honest man doing honest work (especially in the inflated Florida housing market) cannot afford a new home, new cars and provide for his family.
There are lots of good, hard-working Americans in this country who are suffering. We cannot ignore them. No matter how secure and protected you feel, you could become them.
Edwards understands that we all deserve the right to live in an America we can be proud of. We can all pull together and make it a better place and a good strong leader inspires action in even apathetic people.
Supporting John Edwards is the morally decent thing to do.
