    Since many here are Obama supporters, I am interested in hearing from you on why you agree with Barack Obama that it is necessary to "fundamentally change" America and what that "fundamental change" might look like?

    Make our elections safe from the influence of corruption.

    Make our government be responsive to the people who make up this entire country and not reponsive to the monied interests.

    Then support voter verification and holding ACORN and other groups like it accountable for the actions under their control, including the actions and accountability of their employees

    And it figures that you would support responsiveness to popular whim... those whims would bring all kinds of atrocities to our government...

    Popular whim?

    You mean the will of the majority of Americans?

    I think that is what the founders intended.

    maybe you should study how the founding fathers set up our government...

    Our government was indeed set up the way it was to protect the country against the tyranny that can come on pure popular whim...

    I dont know why, I think its simple. Yes, he is going to spend and invest in infrastructure and he will try to build a new economy thru what he calls a "green economy" this is spending that should have been done years ago, he will play offense instead of sitting back and playing defense like the republicans will do. I think that would be one example.

    Things will go from "really shitty" to "just shitty".
