Go to http://www.barackobama.org and on the left side of the top links on his home page, click on LEARN, then look down the menu that comes into view and click on KNOW the FACTS. You will find the latest controversial comments and both sides of the issue so you can analyze it more efficiently.

Below is my "Why I Support Barack Obama" which explains some of the reasons I know Senator Barack Obama will make a good President of the United States of America.

Senator Barack Obama is able to see the best from both sides of issues and explain the pros and cons to us. He is gifted in analysis and able to clearly define the nature of the problem as well as options for resolution. His candor, his self-control and grace under pressure, his ability to listen, his quiet but commanding presence that is respected by all of the other presidential candidates--these are a few of his character qualities that indicate he is the "man of the hour" for our next President of the United States of America.

We will be enduring tough times as a nation and the situation requires a President with considerable diplomatic experience in his manner of speech with people from all walks of life as well as a practical understanding of the daily struggles and joys in America at all economic levels.

I have questions, like the effect of his capital gains' tax plan that was discussed on George Stephanopolous' "Round Table" on 4-20-08 but I am hoping that Senator Obama is open to tweaking any of his plans if additional facts or perspectives are laid on the table. He seems to be a man who would be open to changing his view in the face of evidence. Situations turn upside down overnight in the world now, so we need a president who can gather all of the facts, assess them wisely, then reassess them later and make modifications if a Plan B, C or D becomes necessary.

I respect Senator Obama's ability to address things directly, thoughtfully and tactfully with no arrogance, no drama, no ego, no haughtiness, no ignorance, no lying and with no dysfunctional pride nor conceitedness that is blind to the truth. He rises above everyone in heated discussions which is evidence of superb training and discipline in his life. He is a peacemaker in his own right...able to get everyone to focus on the bottom line and build from there. He is going to make a good president who will go the extra mile to protect us, to help us in rescue and recovery. He will have to make choices between the "lesser of two evils" in many situations...anyone who wants to understand that bigger picture should research the statistics on http://www.economyincrisis.org

Remember...he will not be able to tell us everything about what is happening. National security and our very lives will be at stake. Encourage him to stand strong against wrong compromises and provide the facts quickly to him--he will be pressured unlike any other president in history.
