Now, I'm not one of those damnable Coffee Shop Revolutionaries who try to work with the opposition. I'm all about that violence towards "elected" officials who don't serve We the People. You know, removing them from power one way or another, taking back what's ours (the wealth), and mocking the living bejesus out of the intolerant. Maybe you've heard.
While Barack Obama is heralded by most "leftists" as the most amazing dude to hit Earth since J. Chrizzist supposedly got the RAGE Virus, I've been skeptical. After all, he's rich, he's a capitalist, and he's a Democrat, which seems to suggest more empty promises. I'm sorry, but I'm just not ready to be swindled again.
Well, today I've had to rethink some of that. Barack Obama has just announced that the Democratic National Committee will no longer accept funding from lobbyist groups.
From this article:
"Obama... told a town hall meeting in Bristol, Va., Thursday that the fundraising changes will help keep him and Democrats free of special-interest influence. "We are going to change how Washington works," he said.
And this is from a story about how everyone in Washington is pissed:
“Now you’re implying that the House and Senate Democrats - and Republicans - are scumbags that take lobbyist money,” the lobbyist fumed.
It seems that one of my biggest gripes with the Federal Government, that they don't work for us, is being worked on by the (probable) next President of the United States of America. While I'm still pessimistic, and think that this is probably just another way to gain public praise, I have to admit, I'm about ready to see where Obama steers this stupid country of ours.
