Before you paint Barack Obama with a broad or race-based brush...
I agree that if Ron Paul does what he says he will, he could be a good candidate. I still haven't seen him come out with plans of any detail, just
huge (in a positive way) structural changes he would make to government. I am skeptical he could pull it off, and don't understand enough of the
details of his plan to know what we'd end up with when/if he finished. That said, it could be very positive.
Regarding Barack Obama, my mom knew Barack Obama's mom, used to babysit him, and has very positive things to say about both of them. I first heard
about Barack Obama when I heard a senator giving an inspiring speech on the radio. I didn't know he was black or even who he was, and I didn't know
my mom knew let alone babysat him. The values he spoke of rung true in my opinion, and I heard him as sincere. He also seems quite intelligent. If
there is a conspiracy, I'm personally about 99.9% sure he would not be part of it. I believe he's the real deal, and truly independent of his race,
someone who can make a difference.
Perhaps that's why when Hillary is slightly ahead, the headlines read "Clinton Maintains Lead". When they are tied, the headlines read "Clinton
his a Rough Patch", and when he is in the lead, do most headlines lead with Obama? No. Instead, the latest headlines read "Second is the New First
Place", or "Clinton Talks About Attacks, Polls, Hopes". She's the insider, he's the wild card.
Right on his site, he's laid out detailed plans covering much of what I see people discussing on ATS. I haven't seen that from anyone else. Click on
