i have a severe distaste for things deemed as "trendy" and am offended when people call me trendy.
i realized yesterday why i have had a hard time liking Obama.
it has nothing to do with him particularly.
its just the fact that he is SO trendy!
in my life time, i have never seen a president as the "biggest celebrity."
perhaps my grandparents and parents have seen that happen. but not me.
i associate anyone who is the major celeb of the moment as "trendy, silly, superficial, comical" and i expect them to go out of fashion in a hot flash.
i have been weary of endorsing Obama because i dont want to jump on a trend boat when it comes to something SO serious as electing a president. I dont want my liking of the potential leader of my country to be easily swayed by trendy popular consensus.
i dont want to elect a president because he is "hot in the moment".
i want to believe my president will be revolutionary, real, sincere, honest, TIMELESS, memorable.
i dont want to like obama because he is trendy.
a president should be timeless, BEYOND the trend.
i do hope that obama is beyond the trend. i do hope he is timeless and potentially revolutionary. i think i will vote for him. and i'll try to trust that good change will come for America. i dont have much faith in government.
i think dating 2 socialists, an anarchist and a marxist may have had a bit of an influence on me hahah.
