Today is Election Day. Where children are off from public schools, yet are not the ones who are voting tomorrow. I was ruminating on that idea all of yesterday, it does not make sense!
One interesting event that has occurred during the campaign trails this year is the active role of celebrity in politics. No, I am not talking about Arnold Schwarzenegger. I am talking about all the celebrities that have been placing endorsements towards a particular presidential candidate: President Barack Obama.
From my previous post, Red, White and Time Turner?, Cher and Kathy Griffin appeared in a video that was very anti-Romney, however, it was also a plea for women to go vote. Below, Chris Rock makes his statement to vote for President Obama through his expertise, comedy.
Other celebrities showing their support for President Obama include: Beyonce and Cynthia Nixon. Beyonce shows her support and appreciation of President Obama in a letter that she wrote (Letter) and posted on her website. Cynthia Nixon showed her support for President Obama by traveling down to Ybor City, Florida and giving a speech. In this speech, she talks about how it would not have been possible to marry her partner if it were not for Obama’s support for gay marriage. Also, she tells the audience that:
Miranda, Charlotte, Carrie and Samantha would totally be Camp Obama.
Those ladies mentioned above are from Sex and the City, for those who do not know. The idea is quite interesting as Cynthia utilizes her star power to convince voters to vote for President Obama. In the bigger picture, all these celebrities are using their star power to help hopefully win the election.
Celebrities are not the only ones utilizing the media to voice their pleas and support for President Obama. Many YouTube videos have been made in regards to the election. Two of the many videos creatively used the popular song, “Gangnam Style” by Psy to express their stance on the election.
This first video is called: “Obama Style”
Finally, this last one is called: “Mitt Romney Style”
Now it is time for YOU to decide and vote Today, November 6, 2012. OUR future depends on each and every vote.
