The rich already pay almost all of the taxes

in response to reader comment: LAY OFF THE RELIGION

Most of the lower classes don't pay any taxes now, the rich already pay. Maybe they make more money because they got off their duff and earned it. Yes, religion matters! His "christian" church is the most racist example I have ever seen. Just what we need---an angry, racist, Muslim convert that is only 6.25% black (although he has based his campaign on his black race to get that vote), 50% white and 43.75% arab who was quoted on Sunday Morning's Meet the Press

Senator Obama Live on Sunday states, 'As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides, Obama said. 'There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd like to Teach the World to Sing.' If that were our anthem, then I might salute We should consider to reinvent our National Anthem as well as to redesign our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we as a Nation of warring people, should conduct ourselves as the nations of Islam, whereas peace prevails. Perhaps a state or period of mutual concord between our governments. When I become President, I will seek a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation have placed upon the nations of Islam an unfair injustice. My wife disrespects the Flag for many personal reasons. Together she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past, many years ago. She has her views and I have mine'. Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put aside my hatred. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path of hope.

As Comander of Chief of our nation, he better be ready to take sides!
