barack obama......is not the saviour of the world.......he is no fredrerick douglass, he is no nelson mandela, he is just the president of the united states of america, at the moment, and hopefully he will fulfill his promises and there will be no backlash if or when he can't deliver and or does less than most but looks good, like JFK. i hope there aren't any people who supported him without looking into his policies and at his record, or just supported him because of his magically vague catch phrases.

i hope barack does what clinton did, without the gulf wars and i hope he does get america out of these wars that hit us so succesively, maybe hit up some isolationist policies in washington until we get back on top, and maybe, just maybe, he will not only make change, but............progress

don't fail me now obama, cause if you don't do well in office, i don't know what the repercussions will be.......


oh and Gore-Schwarzenegger 2012

i supported obama mainly because he was different from all the other presidents we had. hes young, black, and really knows how to get the excitement of change going in his speeches. i dont believe that he can immediately bring change to america. nobody in the world could do that. eventually change will come over the years. you just gotta be patient :}

Personally i think hes linked too closely with special interest groups, which makes me nervous. Interest groups always have agendas, and between them and party agendas, I have very little hope that he will put the countries interest above these agendas. Furthermore, his background is quite.... uncertain. We know where hes been, we just dont know if hes the same person or has truly changed since then. If a white president has said the remarks towards african americans that Obama has said towards white people, he would have been called racist and excommunicated. However for Obama, its like everyone is turning a blind eye, which is sad.

Too many people are looking at the color of his skin and not who he really IS. This is important for any politician. Obama's past isnt a very reassuring one, but for all we know, he could truly be a changed man or great pres.

One thing that bothers me though, is that he has not refuted the claims of being the first black president. It seems very very few americans know their history. Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the USA was the son of a black man and white woman. Abe Lincoln was described as dark skin with wirey hair, he was the illigit son of a white woman and a plantation worker, born from an unfaithful mother who was married to a white man but raised anyway. Recent DNA test have shown that Abe indeed was half black. There are a few more presidents being half black and or native american. Democrats at the time labeled the first republican president, abe lincoln as "abe africanus the first", as a form of mockery. Oh the irony.

Obama is the son of a white women and a black man from Kenya, who left the woman to raise the boy alone. If hes half and half, and so are some of our first and greatest presidents, why do they keep trying to over write history by labeling him as the first? Do the Demos want to discredit the first repub president? I really dont have an answer for this but it does bother me.

Politics in the USA are fairly stupid though, its devolved into a business with corruption and agendas. Forget honor or really caring about the country. Its party first, Self interest second and country third. A shame really.

I'll support him now that he's been elected, but I didn't vote for him. I think he's going to play "Robin Hood" and unfairly tax citizens who work hard to earn a living, only to turn around and give it to people who "are less fortunate" aka those who just collect welfare checks. His policies discourage hard work, which is just stupid. Too much socialism for my taste...

Too many people couldn't look past the "my president is black" and "change", without realizing that he really might fuck the country over. Or at least the hard-working middle class.

Unfairly tax "citizens" who "work hard" for a living, aka the wealthy capitalists, when they pretty much exploit minimum wages and ultimately control the flow of the economy and market without consideration to the needs of the people. Sure, capitalists making other people suffer and go into poverty is completely fine, but when they're taxed to help spread out the wealth to the people who need it, oh no no, that's just "socialism".

http://sociology.ucsc.edu/whorulesamerica/power/images/wealth/Figure_1.gif

Twenty percent of the USA population controls 91% of the USA's wealth. To be more exact, 1% of the population controls 40% of the wealth. Next 4% controls 28% of the wealth. Next 5% of the population controls 12% of the wealth. Next 10% controls 11% of the wealth.

The other eighty percent of the USA population controls 9% of the USA's wealth.



So in a room of 100 people and a single pie, one person get 40% of the pie. The other 19 people take 51% of the the pie. Then the remaining 80 people are forced to share 9% of the pie.

Once you are finished reading about the slander of Obama being a "socialist" and other libeling, you tell me where the so called "middle" class is because I'm having a hard time telling whether it even exists.
