    First, he would enact a comprehensive plan to help bring an end to the foreclosure crisis that threatens millions of families. Obama supports efforts to create a new FHA Housing Security Program to provide significant incentives and guarantees for lenders to buy out mortgages that exceed the value of homes and convert them into stable 30-year fixed-rate mortgages that homeowners can afford. This is a responsible plan designed to help responsible homeowners without rewarding borrowers or investors who helped create the problem by gambling recklessly or committing fraud, and it asks both sides to contribute to the solution.

    Source(s): Second, Obama would make sure that we get money into the pockets of people who need it and invest in sustainable job growth. This would include extending unemployment benefits, getting money to hard-pressed states so they don't have to slash key services, and giving substantial permanent tax relief to seniors and working people -- up to $1,000 per working family -- to help Americans who are struggling in this economy The Obama plan offers a responsible yet effective alternative to the President's failed policy of escalation. Realizing there can be no military solution in Iraq, it focuses instead on reaching a political solution in Iraq, protecting our interests in the region, and bringing this war to a responsible end. The legislation commences redeployment of U.S. forces no later than May 1, 2007 with the goal of removing all combat brigades from Iraq by March 31, 2008, a date that is consistent with the expectation of the bipartisan Iraq Study Group.
  • Well, I can't really say it's positive but here it is anyway.

    Read "Rules for Radicals," by socialist Saul Alinsky. That should give you an idea of the kinds of changes he wants to make. Among the primary goals of Alinsky was radical socialism and redistribution of wealth. Obama was hired by Jerry Kellman at one point shortly after arriving in Chicago. Kellman was an Alinsky protégé and he obviously passed what he learned from him to Obama whose plan is obviously to take and take and take from the wealthy until everyone in the country is equally poor. So if he gets into the White House you can forget about that American dream because it will soon be a nightmare.

    Now if you don't learn enough about Obama from reading that book, I suggest you just pick up a copy of Hitler's "Mein Kampf" That should make it clear enough that we will all be working for Obama.

    I've linked the Socialist Action Movement website below. Take a look at it and I think you'll find it interesting that although they don't come right out and praise Obama, every single thing they list on their website is something Obama either has or still stands for.
