Obama wants you to declare your independence.

Over two hundred years ago, a group of patriots wrote a Declaration of Independence to assert their freedom from an oppressive tyrant. Our wonderful country was born. General George Washington would become our first President at 67, followed by 42 men elected by the people to lead the last, best hope for mankind.

But that is not good enough for Barack Obama.

No, he wants you to declare your independence all over again... by donating to his campaign. According to his website, his is the first presidential election truly funded by the people. Here are the screenshots:


I visited Barack Obama's website today to see the new campaign ad. I was greeted with this crap instead. He even has a video to match it:

On the whole, I'd say that this entire decision by the Obama campaign was made for the sole purpose of being able to rub it in John McCain's face. He said himself that he "supports a robust system for the public financing of elections". He just wants to be able to point his finger and use the same old tired smears that Democrats use every election: that Republicans are in the pockets of the wealthy, of lobbyists, of special interest groups, and that it's really the Democrats who work for you.

The smear is nothing new. The tactics are, and I just was in awe of the sheer arrogance of the Obama campaign. It's such an insult to the Declaration of Independence -- the very document that this country was founded upon -- for Barack Obama to even think that he could equate his presidential campaign to it. And it's amazing to me that Obama would be willing to do it for something so pathetic: to spin his way out of breaking campaign pledges.

I especially love the line "the first presidential election truly funded by the people". In that sentence, Barack Obama is smearing every single former President as illegitimate. Amazing. It's as if Obama is actually starting to believe the hype, that he's starting to actually see himself as the Obamamessiah. And I have to wonder, does he really believe that every other President was not funded by the people? Does he really think that? With that sentence, he's painting even our Founding Fathers as swindlers and con-artists who cheated the people to get the Presidency, and himself as the benevolent Savior breaking away from that tradition.

And while he is saying he wants you to declare your independence from a broken system, while he smears our former Presidents, while he insults our Declaration of Independence... he claims to love this country unconditionally. Incredible, isn't it?

God save us if this man actually wins.

Well he has already made the presidential seal his own personal campaign emblem, why not the Declaration of Independence too. I think Obama is all about Obama...I too fear what will come with a President Obama.

epador:

OK boyz, now 2 B Men about things you need to be more tolerant of the morally impaired in an indiscriminate manner. When you are generally intolerant of only those that disagree with you, then your prejudice undermines any credibility to your arguments.

And folks have been known to make baiting comments in a prejudiced manner just to draw the ire of those quick to drop the color card. That might make them rude or politically incorrect, but does not make them racist.

Hmmm.

Obama States:

Giving me your money makes you free.

You work for your money.

Therefore work makes you free.

Or maybe me free to spread even more pabulum and donkey cakes over the airwaves and media, than if I restrained my campaign to Federal Funding.

What a snake oil salesman.

Aren't "public funds" for elections just that? Don't we have that option at tax time to contribute "x" amount of dollars to national elections?

I guess people like Oprah just gave him $5 dollars and all her mega-rich supporter's did the same..

And his smug distain for "so called" 527 groups is a friggin' farce. Gee Barry, you gonna denounce Moveon.org now?

What a shallow hypocrite..

Scrapiron:

I doubt that anyone of Husssein O's makeup was ever hanged by a racist. First you have to figure out what he is, other than a liar and con man. He's less black than anything else so guess we can't say anything about the sorry whites on welfare, it might offend the white side of him. Political correctness is now out of hand. They call me whitey I'll call them the dreaded 'N' word. That's the grown up thing to do.
The real racist are those who scream racism at every turn, or in other words, the liberals.

arcman Author Profile Page:

Funny since most 527 groups in the last election were Democrat oriented. He is forgoing public financing because he thinks that he can continue to raise money and be able to outspend McCain. If we elect this man as our president, then I think we are in deep doo-doo and can kiss our butts goodbye.

Elmo:

I declared my independence when I strode into the voting booth, and pulled the Republican lever for the very first time (Arnie, 2003). After that t'was easy as pie to re-elect Bush in '04 (felt a whole three feet taller that day).

At this point, gotta believe that even Barry doesn't recognise the face staring back at him in the mirror.

Tunnza stories out on the innernut bout the possible damage to Flipper's prez bid. Each re-zeroing the scale to try and predict where the indicator will deflect?

We've got four months to go, I can't but believe it is only going to get worse for Lord Wahfull (in spite of nearly every atomic media engine pegging their rev limiter, in order to get him elected).

I would strongly recommend standing back (even if you employ a scatter shield). Cuz when that baby lets go, and that tranny splodes, and them pistons fly ....

Zelsdorf Ragshaft III:

Powerline blog has an article by a Chicago Prof, who happens to be liberal. He tells the story of who Obama really is. His job as community orgainizer came from Ayers. His early friend Frank (from his book) was a communist. If Obama is elected there could be civil war.
