From April 14th, 2008

As of 10:09 CT that is how many people have donated to Obama for America.

14,265,507 American citizens have voted Barack Obama for president and many more will.

Back on that cold day, February 10th. Who would have thought that?

Not a whole lot of people. But a army of millions of people worked there tail off and focused on the goal. And that is how we have come so far.

The only way a movement like that can be stopped is by distraction.

By taking remarks out of context and claiming someone who was paying collage loans off a few years ago is a elitist.

An elitist? An elitist?

  1. The belief that certain persons or members of certain classes or groups deserve favored treatment by virtue of their perceived superiority, as in intellect, social status, or financial resources.
  1. a. The sense of entitlement enjoyed by such a group or class.

b. Control, rule, or domination by such a group or class.

You mean Barack Obama, the guy who was a community organizer? Elitist?

But that is the game that has to be played. It makes us all distracted so we spend time worrying and not doing anything.

We can't fall into that trap.

I don't have a whole lot to say. But if you are worried about this then stop it and do something about it. That is the only thing that will help.

Hit the phones, hit the road, write a letter to the editor, go to a event, volunteer, donate. Do SOMETHING.

As Paul Wellstone said, the future will not belong to those who stand on the sidelines. We don't have time for distraction. It's time for action.

And since it is probably too late to do many of those things (except for donating) I will leave you with two videos to reflect on.


Yes. We. Can.
