When they assassinate Obama this guy will take over. By his own words, he has been responsible for the past 30 years of foreign relations. Who owns him?

Watch the video, Hacking Democracy.
Then consider wether your vote counts? We are going to have to take it back, by whatever means necessary.
Read the New York Times article Bad Elections.
"Congress has stood idly by while states have done the hard work of trying to make electronic voting more reliable. Now the Senate is taking up a dangerous bill introduced by Senators Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, and Robert Bennett, Republican of Utah, that would make things worse in the name of reform. If Congress will not pass a strong bill, it should apply the medical maxim: first, do no harm.
Voters cannot trust the totals reported by electronic voting machines; they are too prone to glitches and too easy to hack. In the last few years, concerned citizens have persuaded states to pass bills requiring electronic voting machines to use paper ballots or produce voter-verifiable paper records of every vote. More than half of the states now have such laws."

Why Corporations Should Not Be Taxed.
Most corporations, including the vast majority of foreign companies doing business in the United States, pay no income taxes, according to a Government Accountability Office report released Tuesday.
To those of us that are educated on the nature of American Capitalism and economic theory, this is no surprise. Only the ignorant mass of U.S. Citizens, those outside of the five-percent club, are dumb enough to be 'shocked' or cynical enough to claim that it's common knowledge that corporations don't pay.
“As most college freshmen learn in Economics 101, corporations do not pay taxes, people do. The burden of corporate taxation is ultimately borne by customers (through higher prices), stockholders (smaller dividends and capital gains), and employees (lower wages).” -Corporations Don’t Pay Taxes, People Do
The problem is not that Corporations Pay No Taxes, it makes perfect economic sense to eliminate all barriers to profit to maximize the profit motive and encourage financial investment, putting people to work. The REAL Problem is that we allow Corporations to be political actors, to be Corporate Citizens, to influence our government, our judicial system, to make our laws and determine our foreign policies based upon their interests, no ours.
The purpose of a corporation is to avoid liability.
How many of you work for a corporation? How many of you invest in corporations? How many of you own corporations (got Stock)? How many rely on corporations to meet your basic needs? Answer: ALL OF YOU!
We have mistaken the CORPORATION for the cause of our problems, it is noting but a legal entity designed to avoid personal responsibility by those who use their powers to do harm.
What is the solution? Simple. INCORPORATE EVERYONE!
If each and every person becomes an automatic S-Corporation at BIRTH, their income will never be taxed, just like other corporations, and they will have all the same freedoms and lack all the same responsibilities as other corporations. They will be able to set their own salary and any Corporation will have access to the same legal protections as all others, i.e. limited liability.
Now, if you disagree, which would you rather have, one world of sovereign individuals, or a world dominated by giant international corporations, above the law, beyond taxation, irresponsible and seeking only to maximize profits?

This election is far too important to loose. The 2008 Election will decide if the American Experiment is over. Will this be the year that our Democratic Republic fades into history, to be replaced by a corrupt corporate fascism? If our once precious American Liberty is to continue to brighten this world it will require sacrifice. We must be the leaders we have been waiting for, else it will be extinguished by those who would return all free people to the yoke of an elite royalty of economic empire.
It is my belief that anyone who votes for the Neo-Conservative Republicans in this upcoming election is voting against American Values of Liberty, Justice, Equality, and Self-Reliance. These are the TRUE American values, they go far beyond the petty 'Family Values' of our opposition. They are not values limited to any one party, race, religion, gender, or nation. These values are not owned by any group of people, they are FUNDAMENTAL AMERICAN VALUES, and it is time, we need to embrace them.
What is at stake in this nation of United States, is nothing less than our very soul. The current administration has taken liberty with our fundamental laws and stripped us of the very bill of rights that incorporate the foundation of our republic. The Republican Party, corrupted by corporate interests, had raped our freedom and stolen our integrity.
We as democrats can not play tit for tat revenge politics and swing this country into an idealized socialism that will cause yet another backlash. We need to make real, specifically detailed arguments for every change we wish to bring, and we must bring on board the very same ignorant conservatives that are responsible for our current state affairs. Else we risk dividing this nation forever between rich and poor, elitists and populists, Republican and Democrat. In short, we must educate those responsible for our downfall into those who, through their efforts, will help us restore our true American Values, and achieve our ultimate potential.
This will NOT be easy. To forgive our brothers and sisters their sins will take great courage. To do so we need courageous leaders who can articulate what separates our people and demonstrate the righteousness of our cause. As President we need a person capable of speaking to things greater than our petty differences and calling All Americans to atone, and better our nation.
I know that I could not do that, my NEED to hold the Bush administration accountable for their horrible crimes, for the torture, and the death that they have needlessly caused, is far too great. I believe that no American, not even the President himself is above our fundamental Law, the Constitution of these United States, and that justice must be done if we are to continue as a Nation, united in value and purpose. I can not pardon the crimes committed against us, nor those committed in our name against humanity. I have no stomach for our Brothers excuses. I am not a saint, I would have them live by the golden rule, an eye for an eye.
However, America, my homeland, can not afford to be divided at this time, the failures of our current leadership have been too great. We need strong people who can move beyond all these failures. We need someone who can speak knowledgeably and knowingly to ALL Americans, and bridge the gaps that divide us.
We need a healer, someone who can correct the errors of our ways and inspire us to again reach for our full potential. Someone who can re-define our American Dream, not as a competition among ourselves to oppress others, but as a cooperative venture to spread our uniquely American Liberty, justly, throughout the world. We need what is best in each of us, and leaders who can bring that out.

Their extreme gluttony that requires us as a nation to consume energy until it destroys the very world we seek to create. Our personal responsibility unparalleled as we refuse to sacrifice our lifestyles even to save the very planet.
Their greedy love of money above all other values, which gives rise to the capitalist causes so often mistaken for liberty, and which are ultimately guilty of our economic downfall.
The artful way they elevate laziness, infecting our children with the conceit that they are victims, robbing them of their own responsibility for their education, and giving their parents a pass for their failures to educate our youth.
Their manipulations of our jealous insecurities, that elevate envy of those with wealth and beauty, as we ignore our own character and integrity, to watch in spectacle as the mighty fall. Only in Paris would such decadent propaganda be allowed, yet thus they promote the repulsive to distract us all.
They have forsaken our forefathers wisdom, using disaster and terror to justify their cause. Their wrath, in the face of shallow crimes, leads us all into endless seas of suffering, injustice, and wars.
Which bring me to this humble point, the worst of their sins is pride. Ignoring that all men are created equal, they embrace an unspoken elitism, claiming the divine rights of kings, as superiors, based upon a flawed philosophy of economic righteousness. As if the compound interests of their father's misdeeds can be used to justify some kind of ability in themselves. They secretly fear honest competition with their brothers, and hide behind gates, attempting to imprison the world.
"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.
The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is
wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts
they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions,
it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ...
And what country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not
warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of
resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as
to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost
in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."
- Thomas Jefferson
