This is actually pretty interesting. I had stated in another thread that started to tie Obama to Bilderberg that I had actually emailed his campaign.
I had questioned his legitimacy if he was willing to employ people like Johnson who has ties to such immoral organizations as the ones he did. That
if he would do this and tie himself to the money he says he opposes then how can we believe him.
Of course I had put a bit more in there in regards to reasons for him being in VA last Wednesday and such while the Bilderberg group was meeting.
I didn't expect a response. However, I got one but it wasn't really one that touched on any of the points I had questioned. It was a pretyped
response/speech that he obviously has set up for inquiries. However, the funny thing is that it didn't show up until yesterday.
Here is the response:
Thank you for taking the time to write to me. Your interest in my candidacy and participation in the electoral process is important to me and will
help shape the future of the country.
Since voting began earlier this year, the volume of mail we are receiving has exceeded all expectations. I have been impressed with the diversity and
depth of the comments and questions I receive, most of which underscore the significant challenges the next president will face. And I have
appreciated the candid observations about my campaign and policy positions.
At the core, the Democratic primary contest and the 2008 general election are about national priorities and national values. The 2008 elections will
not only be a referendum on George W. Bush's agenda over the past 8 years; they will also be about who the American people believe has the judgment
to chart a new course and draw the nation together in pursuit of its common purpose.
President Bush stands behind his decisions to stay the course in Iraq, pursue a "go-it-alone" foreign policy, and rely on tax cuts for the
wealthiest among us to strengthen the economy and improve the lives of working Americans. He is unapologetic about allowing industry executives and
lobbyists to write government policy or injecting politics into the decisions of federal prosecutors.
I hold an alternate vision – one that invests in education, job creation and the environment; seeks to break the hold that oil companies and foreign
producers have on our economy through conservation and the development and use of renewable sources of energy; acknowledges the importance of
fundamental civil liberties to our society; preserves the integrity of Social Security and Medicare; reforms our social contract so that Americans
enjoy health and pension security in the global economy; and insists that the government live within its means and reduce the national debt. I am
running for president to build a national consensus behind strengthening the economy, improving the quality of life for all Americans, including the
most vulnerable among us, unleashing the creative energy of
American ingenuity to build a 21st century economy, restoring America's reputation and leadership in the world, and defeating the forces of
Some pundits, and my opponents, like to suggest that my three years in the United States Senate are a liability for my campaign. Three years may not
be a long time, but I can assure you it is long enough to know that things in Washington must change. That is why I am running my campaign out of
Chicago, not Washington, D.C., and concentrating on meeting with and listening to people who live outside our nation's capital. And that is why I
believe of all the candidates running I will be best able to break the longstanding grip that vested interests and their lobbyists have had on the
policy making process in Washington.
I have been gratified by the amount of grassroots interest my campaign has generated. As I travel the country, my campaign headquarters is receiving
thousands of personal messages a week from people like you. This volume of mail reflects the importance individual citizens place on this election.
Although I am unable to address each of the concerns raised in these communications individually, you can be assured that collectively they are
helping shape my vision of where our country should go.
Again, thank you for writing, and for voting.
