Yeah. Its called a bicycle.
We will regress back to the stoneage if Obama is elected, so walking will become the primary means of transportation. Walking is fueled by grain and beef, so buy your futures now.
I wonder if Obama will start to work back to the center now that the primary is over.
That was the excuse from all of the Democrats with half an economic brain, that Obama was just going extreme left for the primary, but wouldn't actually destroy the economy with all of the added spending and taxation. They said that he was just trying to "out left" Hillary.
I am starting to think however, that those positions are things he supports.
He may have played his hand too far left now to come back to the center.
look at his history. not only is he the most liberal senator based on voting records, he is close to two different Marxist professors. this guy is all about wealth redistribution.
Unfortunately, to the general populace, raising taxes on the wealthy sounds like a good thing. not only do they already pay more than their fair share, and that the problem is really spending, the wealthy create most jobs. Small biz owners land in the wealthy category usually. (over 250k per yr).
this is the only problem I have with obama, but its a biggy. He is definitely a smart guy, and wants to expand alternative fuels, although it still won't be economically feasible on a large scale unless oil goes up another 100% or so.
