According to the NY Times (love this paper), the rich (top 20% of income earners), only paid 67.1% of taxes. That means that the bottom 80% of the income earners had to pay 32.9% of our taxes. It is positively absurd that the non-rich have to pay taxes at all. Rich people are rich because Republicans via corporations and other right-wing organizations steal from the poor so that they can fly in private jets and own yachts. As far as I’m concerned only rich white men (Republicans) should pay any taxes, after all they are the ones that made women stay in the kitchen and enslaved Africans. The rest of us should only have to utilize public services that we don’t pay for–since white men owe us big time. I think that Obama will bring this change. McCain and his right-wing friends such as Sarah Palin have said that they will lower taxes, which means lower taxes for the rich, since pretty much only the rich pay taxes. This is not acceptable, this is not change I believe in. Obama is the change I want!

Barack Obama truly is Awesome–hence the blog title. I am mezmerized by his poise at the podium, his acumen at community organization, and his excellence is harvard law review editing. However, we have many challenges ahead of us, the Extreme-Right-Wing-Sarah Palin, an enemy of the United States, gave a speech.
She lied to the American people about community organization and insulted organized communities across the world. The fact of the matter is that communities are not inherently organized, they need community organizers, like Barack Obama. That is why I stand with Organizers who Fight Back. We understand that we can’t take care of ourselves, and that we need Barack Obama to organize us into a changed community that will bring hope to the future.
Republicans will not bring us change. The last eight years have been absolutely terrible. The United States has not been this bad off since the great depression. Under the failed Bush administration in 2005 alone, over 2,447,900 people died in the United States.
