Also look at his plan for 401ks, which would make these private retirement investments covernment controlled, and would be distributed based on how the government decided, just like Social Security. Such a plan would be no different than the government taking over private, non-retirement savings accounts. THIS is socialism, the deprevation of personal rights and property by the government, and this is what Barack Obama supports.

That’s the problem, we haven’t been paying attention and our elected officials have robbed us for years. Like Barack said, even when the election is over, you shouldn’t just stop there. If he wins, I will do my part as a citizen and pay attention and hold him and the rest of congress accountable. I’m not disillusioned that he’s the savior and will solve our problems and in fact it will take time before any of his plans can be implemented with the economic slowdown, but if I do see at least he’s making some changes, then great.

Personally, I’m not holding my breath for that to happen, but I will vote for him as a vote against McCain. Oh, if only we could have a real democrat or a viable independent on the ticket… But I guess Obama as a republican-light will have to do.

Thanks for the photos.

We need these qualities to restore faith in our government, here and abroad. God Bless American and God Bless Barack Obama.
