FROM BARACK OBAMA'S BOOK:


"Our religious traditions celebrate the value of hard work and express the conviction that a virtuous life will result in material reward. Rather than vilify the rich, we hold them up as role models, and our mythology is steeped in stories of men on the make -- the immigrant who comes to this country with nothing and strikes it big, the young man who heads West in search of his fortune. As Ted Turner famously said, in America money is how we keep score."


That dosen't sound like the "Audacity of Hope" to me. To ME it sounds like a rich guy who enjoys other rich fucks giving him money. Promoting the mythology of old failed religions seems dangerous and unproductive to me...just my .02, I will vote for him, and hope we get him instead of Hillary, but will certainly vote for her too if she is nominated.

No comments:

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
