Obama '08? Simpsons '07!

February 20, 2007

go HERE and watch the video.
it’s long, but it’s good.
there really isn’t really anything to “watch”…
so just play it and do other things while you listen.
but do listen.

i’m not saying i’ve got my mind made up completely or anything…
but barack obama sure is different/impressive/(seemingly) real.
everything i’ve seen with this guy, i’ve liked…

lets hope he is who he says he is.

on a lighter note: a new simpsons trailer is out. word.

    He lost me when he mentioned the estate tax. Who is he or anyone else in our government to say that if my father dies, I owe taxes anywhere from 30% – 50% on my inheritance which has already been taxed when he earned it? I believe his quote was:

    “When you’ve got an estate tax that is talking about a trillion dollars being taken out of social programs to go to a handful of folks who don’t need it and weren’t even asking for it, we need an injection of morality into our political debate.”

    Sorry, Mr. Obama. The arrogance of a government to double tax the inheritance of someone’s family simply because you believe they don’t need it… The American Revolution was fought for much less than this. I think Barack is a good man, maybe even a great man but it is his policies that will determine whether or not he receives my vote. For this I cannot give it to him.

    Does this make me sound greedy? Well, maybe so but that’s something I think I’m willing to live with.

    After a few thoughts I realize that to judge a candidate based on one policy was wrong of me. I do like him and does seem real and not the tired crap we are used to by politicians. When all is said and done, I doubt I will vote for anyone. I’m just tired of the whole thing.
