"Just chanting his name makes me a better person. I
haven't been inspired like this since the big pep
rally scene in "Revenge of the Nerds"....another poster, OBAMA/WICKED<3ER, says:
i am 12 and not old enough to vote,
but i saw him speak last november in harlem. i cant believe it, im getting so teary-eyed.
it was the most amazing day of my life. he just gets it. i am from a very political family...
my dad worked for president clinton, my moms company did some of obama's ads.
he is like a message from god."

The We Are The Ones Song
by will.i.am

people say Obama’s words are just words...
but...
when was the last time "words" weren’t important...???...
when was the last time a great leader didn’t use words
to lead...??...
when was the last time a person didn’t use words to
describe how they felt...?...
when was the last time "words" weren’t empowering...?...
and we can all recall the last time "words" were used to
divide us and install fear...
Bush used words to fear us into voting for him the
second time around...
terror this...
terror that...
nuclear here...
weapons of mass destruction there...
and those words effected a lot of people’s choices...
"enough is enough"...
let’s rebuild...
let’s change ourselves...
let’s allow positivity to guide us...
let's take action....
let’s activate our passion...
we are Americans....
and this is the first time in forever that someone
running for president represents "US"...
some say this is all excitement...
I call it “proud to be an American”...
some say this whole Obama movement is "cult like"...
well...
if it comes across cult like...
then...
the cult is called America...
the Obama movement is connecting America.
and it has made "US" realize our importance...
the youth is excited and activated...
adults are passionate and motivated...
the elderly are proud to know the country they built is
in safe hands...
we are one...
for too long politics has been corrupt...
separate from the American people...
with agendas that go against what the American
people "need"...
education...
health...
safety...
jobs
etc...
politicians have spoken a different language...
making it so the youth and poor people feel as if voting
was only for the wealthy and old people...
making "US" feel as if "we" had no voice...
making "US" feel powerless...
making it feel like if "we" did vote it wouldn’t change
anything...
but wait...
that did happen...
some of us voted, and it didn’t change anything...
we were in the dark...
we had no voice...
we were powerless...
because America was not a united America...
and "they" spoke a different language...
and they had an agenda different from our well being...
correct me if I’m wrong... or speak up if I’m missing
something...
we want education, health, safety, and good
jobs...right???..
. oh yeah...
and "a healthy planet to live on"...
but here we are...
in a war... poor education... poor health programs...
the dollar is down... the planet,
polluted...
the rich, richer... and the poor, struggling...
with sky high gas prices to top it all off...
and now even the rich aren't really rich internationally
because our dollar is has fallen so far down...
in our slumber... a very small few got really rich...
because when you’re sleeping...
"it’s hard to change agendas"...
we know what happened in 2000 and 2004...
but in 2008...
it’s different...
we are awake...
and there is a movement...
and "it’s hard to change a movement"...
last time "we" didn’t have a movement...
America wasn’t united...
and now "United and "Standing"...for something...
we know the power of "US"...
and we have a person who represents the "U.S."...
"US"…
"we are the ones we’ve been waiting for"...

I’m proud to be an American...

will.i.am

(Notice all the video participants, Black, White,and/or Hispanic, which I recognize, are rich--including the Obamas themselves?)

Where’s the barf alert? These obamorons are such nitwits. Good grief. To think they can be so easily swayed is scary. Are we seeing the rise of another Hitler?

Not to worry. They are much like the butterflies that flit aimlessly from place to place on a summer breeze, looking for whatever catches their eye at the moment.

Good Lord! The Obama crowd reminds me of the hypnotic crowd in the 1999 movie, “The Mummy” where they all chanted “Im-Ho-Tep!” while chasing around Brandon Fraser & Co. B-P

How about this for a campaign song?

(Russian)

Интернационал

Вставай проклятьем заклейменный,
Весь мир голодных и рабов!
Кипит наш разум возмущённый
И в смертный бой вести готов.
Весь мир насилья мы разрушим
До основанья, а затем
Мы наш мы новый мир построим,
Кто был никем тот станет всем!

Припев:
Это есть наш последний
И решительный бой.
С Интернационалом
Воспрянет род людской!

(Romanized)

Internatsional

Vstavaj prokliatem zaklejmennyj,
Ves mir golodnykh i rabov!
Kipit nash razum vozmushchionnyj
I v smertnyj boj vesti gotov.
Ves mir nasilia my razrushim
Do osnovania, a zatem
My nash my novyj mir postroim,
Kto byl nikem tot stanet vsem!

Pripev:
Ehto est nash poslednij
I reshitelnyj boj.
S Internatsionalom
Vosprianet rod liudskoj

(English)

The Internationale

Arise ye workers from your slumbers
Arise ye prisoners of want.
For reason in revolt now thunders
And at last ends the age of cant.
Away with all your superstitions
Servile masses arise, arise!
We'll change henceforth the old tradition
And spurn the dust to win the prize.

Refrain:
So comrades, come rally,
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale unites the human race!

Or Anti-Christ. This guy is scarier than the Hildebeast, although I don't want either of them to get in.

Got me there. Words are important. Here are a few more:

Gullible
Morons
Dimwits
Dullards
Ignorant
...or just use the one word that sums them all up: Democrats

...we know what happened in 2000 and 2004...

Yeah, that darn Bush won. And you're sore over it.

So now you think voting for BhO will bring you jobs, prosperity, education, peace, sex, dope. Go ahead.

Get back to me after a year of BhO and tell me if you have a better job, more prosperity, higher education, world peace, more sex and dope. Really.

You are what you make yourselves. No Bush, no Republican can hold you down. If you're a loser, you'll still be a loser under BhO.

If you're a value to society and a worker, you'll be OK under Bush or BhO. You are what you make yourselves. Don't just blame The Man.

Living Colour - Cult Of Personality

Look in my eyes, what do you see?
Cult of personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
I've been everything you want to be
I'm the cult of personality
Like Mussolini and Kennedy
I'm the cult of personality
Cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights, Nobel Prize
When a mirror speaks, the reflection lies
You won't have to follow me
Only you can set me free

I sell the things you need to be
I'm the smiling face on your TV
I'm the cult of personality
I exploit you, still you love me
I told you one and one make three
I'm the cult of personality
Like Joseph Stalin and Gandhi
I'm the cult of personality
Cult of personality
Cult of personality

Neon lights, a Nobel Prize
A leader speaks, that leader dies
You won't have to follow me
Only you can set you free

You gave me fortune
You gave me fame
You gave me power in your God's name
I'm every person you need to be
I'm the cult of personality
