    "Ask What Change
    Once upon a time , there was a young charismatic and eloquent young leader who decided his Nation need a change and that he was the one to implement it. The people were receptive and ready for a change. He spoke passionately when denouncing the existing system, and the media loved him. Nobody questioned what he believed in or whom his friends were. He would help the poor and bring free medical care and education to all. He would bring justice and equality. He said: I am for hope and change and I will bring you both. Nobody bothered to ask about the change, so by the time the executioners’ guns went silent, all personal firearms had been confiscated. When everyone was finally equal, they were equally poor, hungry and miserable. Their free education was worthless. When the change was fully implemented, the country had been reduced to a Third World status. More than a million people fled in small boats and rafts. The charismatic young leader was Fidel Castro; the nation, Cuba .

    The citizens of the United States would never fall for a charismatic, eloquent young leader who promises hope and change without asking, “What change, and how much will it cost us?”—would we? "

    "FIDEL CASTRO & OBAMA

    Barack Obama and Fidel Castro share many personality traits, ie:
    a.. Both were abandoned by their fathers at an early age.
    b.. Both are charming, eloquent lawyers that say exactly what people want
    to hear at the right time and place.
    c.. One never led the nation to suspect he was a communist at heart.
    d.. The other doesn't mention the word socialism when in reality this is
    exactly what his agenda stands for.
    e.. Both were virtually unknown until they began to use the word 'change'
    as their main political motto.
    f.. Both have egos as tall as the twin towers, yet they manage to present
    themselves humbly, one in soiled military fatigues and the other sweating
    and with an undone tie.
    g.. Both have the unique ability to distort truth and lies as if they were
    the same.
    h.. Both have the ability to hypnotize the ignorant and fool the wishful
    thinker and to divide a nation in clas ses, (divide and you shall win).
    i.. In Fidel's case he divided the rich against the poor, the illiterate
    against the educated and the black against the white.
    j.. In Obama's case even if by omission, he's de-facto dividing the races
    already.
    k.. Another resemblance between Obama and Fidel and one that shall never
    be forgotten is that the American media supported the 'Twentieth Century
    Latin American Liberator' (Time Magazine) with the same degree of
    irresponsibility devoted to Barack Obama today.
    And lastly, I will use the words of Jorge Santayana to finish my case in
    point:
    'Those who can't remember the past, are condemned to repeat it.'

    And in the words of Sir Winston Churchill:
    'The inherent vice of Capitalism is the unequal distribution of blessings
    and the inherent vice of Socialism is the equal distribution of misery.'

    GOD SAVE AMERICA! "

    I might like to point out

    f.. Both have egos as tall as the twin towers, yet they manage to present
    themselves humbly, one in soiled military fatigues and the other sweating
    and with an undone tie.
    g.. Both have the unique ability to distort truth and lies as if they were
    the same.
    h.. Both have the ability to hypnotize the ignorant and fool the wishful
    thinker and to divide a nation in clas ses, (divide and you shall win).


    f, g, and h are pretty much part of a typical politicians.

    Or it will be forgotten as a complete waste of bandwidth. That's probably going to be the case. You heard it here first. I remember the first time I realized "virus hoaxes" were hoaxes, while everyone just kept forwarding them, thinking they were doing people a favor. I remember when I recognized how "viral" chain letters could be, especially ones that preyed on the weak-minded greed or fear. Sometimes its hard not to be impatient for others to catch-on to those obvious and repeating truths about human behavior and the pursuit of informative value and rational discourse.

    i was so close to voting for obama until:

    i read he and castro were both abandoned by their fathers at a young age. man, that's scary.

    and i knew there was something fishy with obama's loosened tie...it must be some secret sign for socialists.

    and to think he used the word "change"...and so did fidel.

    did you know neither of them have the letter "g" in their name?

    that means their godless.

    pass it on...

    This is what's it's coming to. People lying,separating truth from fiction, spreading false innuendo and selling their soul just to be seen.

    Truly sad.

    Somehow I doubt it I think there's a side to Obama we'll have yet to see and over the course of the next 4 years if he's elected we'll see that color. I think the well educated ignorance will be at an all time high honestly no one will be willing to admit they made a mistake but they will simply compared their choice to that of george bush to try and justify their wrongful choice.

    Obama will bring choice, theres truth to that statement but wether he benefits his own brothers and sisters or America in general will remain to be seen in the next 4 years.

    Either way we can all agree that we're all desperate to get Bush out of office.

    How was Bush a bad president he reacted to 9/11, he gave the UN 30 days before he'd go into Iraq and they decided yes go ahead so why not start blaming them for the mistakes also. Obama I predict will try and push a more pro-black agenda that will come hidden in the form of "share the wealth" and higher taxes on people making 200-250+k a year (to which a majority of whites fit into).

    The irony in all this is people are very well educated but lack the common sense necessary to see these things going to go on and just simply dismiss it as "redneck" "ignorant" "racist" what ever you'd want to call it. I guess all in the name of finding "better then Bush"

    Highlighted for emphasis. Aren't you ashamed of yourself? It is really, really depressing seeing these constant, unremitting insinuations, misinformation. disinformation, rumour and groundless propaganda being bandied about by so many people who should know better. You wonder why people dismiss you as an ignorant redneck racist? Really? I despair.

    Have you ever noticed that humans typically stick to groups they're familiar with? have you noticed that a lot of Latino's tend to stick with you guessed it Latino's, blacks with blacks, Asians with Asians etc.. upper class with upper class. The only ignorance here is you sir for instantly dismissing the simple fact that humans tend to stick with humans of similar traits, thats not to say that people dont congregate together no people have friends of all colors and shapes. In this day and age being the first African American to be elected president I'm sure groups of other African Americans will try and further African American inspired groups and causes.

    Its really not that far fetched honestly oh and one African American supporting another?!?!? - Oprah & Colin Powell both back Obama.. gee I wonder deep down inside why.

    Over simplistic nonsense. Alot of white republicans are backing Obama as well. You seem to assume that someone of ethnicity cannot make decisions for the good of everybody, rather then his race (done forget Obama is half-white, although you conveniently forget this).

    Besides, what exactly is an African-American 'cause'?

    Alot of white democrats/republicans are backing Obama looking desperately for an end to the Bush era which is why they back Obama. % wise how many African Americans do you think are backing Obama vs McCain?. Its not so much that a person of color cannot make decisions that benefit all they just have certain obligations to try and further the causes be it postive/negative of their race and thats all I'm saying but everyones touchy feely on the issues of race. The fact that Obama's wife is half white isnt of any consequence ironically enough I mean do most people look at the TV when Michelle is on and say ohh man shes half white or half black? nope shes pretty black.

    The cause isnt some devious diabolical plot but blacks are proud in numbers and try to assert their stance/standing over whites. From Jessie Jackson using the race card to the blacks growing in numbers. Its not even that I'm afraid of blacks having a greater # then whites but I fear that one day maybe not in our life times but our childrens that we would of given blacks all the help we could of given them all the benefits/help/donations and in turn they'd use powers in office/business/etc to make it harder if not difficult for whites to live from higher property taxes to tax increases to channeling more money into programs like wefare and putting a drain on whites in such a way that we are a little more like slaves.

    Call it ignorant redneck banter if you want I'll just call you unimaginative.

    considering that the UN general assembly just voted for the 17th time (every year once) that the US trade embargo against cuba should be abolished

    Countries voting Yes: 185 (one more than last year)
    Countries voting No: 3: (USA, Isreal, Palau)

    i consider going on a red scare again rather ironic

    I never called you a redneck, just a bit simple.

    How do you think this 'pro-black' agenda will manifest itself? As someone of colour myself I find your view of races somehow competing with each other rather misguided. In my experience, ethnic minorities vote are more concerned about bread and butter issue, just the same as everyone else.

    I'm sorry, I still don't understand how people can get off calling Obama a socialist? Because his tax cuts for the working class "redistribute" wealth? Seems like a pretty loose argument to me...
