Did you watch?
Both the RNC and DNC have ended. Like every similar event before, we’ve seen advocates on both sides of each of the party as well as protesters battling against each party and you’ll also see the more radical anarchist who’s always out and about to wreak havoc to both parties.
This year is a year that would bring evolutionary changes to the White House—a year for a new drastic change in the candidacy of the presidential race. Whether you’re liberal or whether you’re conservative, you know this is a significant year that will either bring in an African-American as president or a female Veep in office for the United States of America. And I would’ve never predicted such an event like this to occur; I now guess Americans are more liberal than ever as the progression of change is now being witnessed through this great presidential race.
I know that this is going to change us, as Americans, and the world would now see a more liberal United States of America—in literal terms. Conservative-Americans wouldn’t agree to what I’m saying, but this is factually true, we’re steering into the new 21st century where changes are being made to our government and our views of the female gender is now becoming a reality.
For you liberals, I know this seems confusing. John Mccain has done it this time and has a bipartisanship in a Democratic official in Joseph Lieberman aiding and supporting him through this election, as well as using the most tactical approach in nominating a female as his running mate in Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska. This is the ingenuity of the creativeness of campaign advisors at work and the best marketing strategy to gain more female voters; as past consensus shows more female voters voting for democrats.
I have never been so excited this year to see that we are moving towards a society of “equality.”
This year, make your vote.
This partisanship of different political powers in office has tainted us as American. Why solely pick one side, why not pick the best person that you believe to be the better person for the job.
Election Day is approaching less than 2 months from now on November 4, 2008. Make sure you’ve made your registrations to vote on Election Day; plus, take that initial step to cast your ballot.
Again, you might be the difference maker in changing the election. You are an American citizen so this is your obligation and your responsibility—so go cast that vote on Election Day.
Once again, in every four years, we inaugurate a new president or welcome in open arms the old for his second and final term. As the old has withstood his ground and was re-elected, this would be a final farewell with the election at stake for a new president impending this year. What side do you choose, Republican or Democrat?
We’re in the beginning phases of the presidential campaign and we at Hmoodle.com would like to get some information from each of these candidates. So, I’ve contemplated on the idea for quite some times now and have formulated a question that might spur up some debate within our Hmong community. The topic of discussion that has led many people pondering about the next president is his ability to help the Hmong community.
So I came up with this question:
“I am Hmong-American and my people before me had fought and died, as well as bled for this country during the secret war in Laos. Presently, there is turmoil in Laos and their bordering country Thailand, where my brethrens, my people are facing genocidal reprisals. We at Hmoodle.com would like to speak for the Hmong community to get your opinion in relations to remedying this situation. I do suspect that due to certain limitations governing international affairs-this might be a little more complex-but going back to what I had conveyed earlier, if you were to become president how would you undertake this situation?”
Basically, we want to be heard and now just wait in anticipation for the reply from each of the candidates.

MN Senate Race
The way of our Country
The great democracy of the United States of America has an advantageous system that allows their commonwealth elect new leaders to office for the future. This is an event that most citizens partake once every 6 years–4 years for presidency–designating individual to become an official representative of the people in each subdivisions of the government; which in turn, these representatives become our voice in implementing new laws during their incumbency.
These individuals are specific parvenus or members of an elite class that has risen due to their leadership knack in the community.
Campaign funding are donated from corporations and individuals having similar views as these core front-runners and is imperative for their success, in addition to volunteers that puts their time and efforts into helping with their operations.
In Minnesota a great battle is in place for the seat of Senator. Norm Coleman in his 1st incumbent as senator for the state since 2002 is running once more for a 2nd term, while Al Franken is better known as an acclaimed Emmy-Award winning comedian as well as writer, who has in the past been a pundit in the political world as a commentator and writer.
The November 4, 2008 election is around the corner, in connection to these campaigns comes its most controversial segment as you can bare witness through commercial advertisement of each opponent defaming their rival.
We introduce you to this year’s most aggressive rivals in Minnesota portraying an all out melee of commercials, the Al Franken Campaign versus the Norm Coleman Campaign. Each individual are front-runners for the 2 political powerhouses in Minnesota: Al Franken representing the DFL (Democratic-Farmer-Labor) Party of Minnesota, while Norm Coleman representing the Republican Party of Minnesota.
Is this an ethical way to persuade the general audience to take sides?
A Belief system
A tendentious belief system is the notion that the poor and minority votes strictly for the Democratic Party, as the opposing Republican Party takes in the wealthier and Caucasian voters-this is fictitious notion, although you can dispute this to a certain degree.
I’ve heard of people swaying towards a decision due to this misconception, but in reality it all comes down to the alignment of ideas between the individual voter and his/her perception on whom he/she view as a stronger leader.
Or sometimes, it’s just past representatives of either political party leaving the state/country in a state of turmoil that would influence voters to choose the opposing political party, henceforth you see the ever-changing political powerhouses in office.
Our Community and Questions for these Candidates
With the election nearing in our home state of Minnesota we at Hmoodle.com would like to inquire about how these front-runners are able to help the Hmong community as well as all who lives in Minnesota as a whole.
With the Hmong community having a strong voice in Minnesota with a population count from the Minnesota State Demographic Center published in June 2004 showing an estimated 60,000 Hmong people residing in the state of Minnesota , we would like to be heard.
Our people have assimilated into this great state of Minnesota in addition to becoming a part of the diverse cultural experience that you see today. We’re a growing ethnic group that has seen leaders in Senator Mee Moua and House of Representative Cy Thao leading our voices in our Hmong community–as we are very grateful for that.
A couple of general questions that I would like to reach out to both candidates Norm Coleman and Al Franken campaigns to answer are:
1) The economic situation with minimum wage at a stagnant standpoint while prices are gradually rising with the cost of living, how would you go on accomplishing this task at hand if elected by the people?
2) Countless jobs are diminishing as large corporations are consolidating their business elsewhere and this is the new trend nowadays, what would be your initial steps to retain these big corporations from straying away from our state?
Plus since we are on this topic of discussion, I would like both candidates’ thoughts on this question that I had recently sent to both parties running for the presidential position.
1) I am Hmong-American and my people before me had fought and died, as well as bled for this country during the secret war in Laos. Presently, there is turmoil in Laos and their bordering country Thailand, where my brethrens, my people are facing genocidal reprisals from this past conflict. We at Hmoodle.com would like to speak for the Hmong community to get your opinion in relations to remedying this situation. I do suspect that due to certain limitations governing international affairs–this might be a little more complex–but going back to what I had conveyed earlier, if you were to become senator of our great state of Minnesota how would you undertake this situation?
Take the initiative and take pride as Americans to register yourself to vote, your opinion matters more than you think!
People who sit around waiting for something to happen will see nothing and will see life pass them by, while people who take the initiative to help out their community as well as voice their opinion will see the difference that they’ll make in our society.
To summarize, it is quite simply saying, go and vote! Be a contributor to our society!
My goals in this article is to get a response from both parties on their political views as Republicans and Democrats as well as see where they stand on these difficult issues that we Americans are facing today.
Plus, this is a way to express my thoughts on getting people to go out and vote for someone, it might be you who’ll be fussing about our new leadership team in office; all awhile it could’ve been you, that swing vote, that could’ve swayed the poll towards the other political party.
To conclude we, at Hmoodle.com, would like each party to respond and should you have any question(s) please feel free to contact me at [email protected]
