The 7 homes are Cindy's or belonging to a trust for her and her children.

Who are the elitists?

Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, had estimated income of $20.4 million in 2007, up from more than $16 million in 2006. The Clintons' largest source of income is fees the former president took in for making speeches, which totaled more than $10 million last year. The Clintons released a summary on April 4 of their 2007 tax information because they have asked for an extension to file their return, which was complicated by the dissolution of their blind trust last year.

Obama and his wife, Michelle, reported $4.2 million in income last year, more than quadruple the $991,000 they made in 2006. About $4 million of that came from sales of his two books, Dreams of My Father and the bestseller The Audacity of Hope. Michelle Obama, an administrator at the non-profit University of Chicago Hospitals, made slightly more than $103,000 last year.

McCain and his wife reported donating $129,390, or about 18%, of their joint income to charity in 2006 and nearly $211,000, or about 27%, last year. McCain's campaign says he donates royalties from his five books to charity, as well as each increase to his Senate salary since he first took office in 1991.

The Clintons gave $3 million to charity last year, about 15% of their income, and a total of more than $10 million over the past eight years, according to summaries released by her campaign. The Obamas gave $240,000 to charity last year, about 6% of their income.

It's time for some "straight talk." If you can really put your political agenda, consider that you are The Boss... which team would you hire?

With America facing historic debt, multiple war fronts, stumbling health care, a weakened dollar, all-time high prison population, skyrocketing Federal spending, mortgage crises, bank foreclosures, etc. etc., this is an unusually critical election year.

Let's look at the educational background of your two options:

Obama:
Occidental College - Two years.
Columbia University - B.A. political science with a specialization in international relations. Class rank: unknown
Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude; President Harvard Law Review

& Biden:
University of Delaware - B.A. in history and B.A. in political science. Class rank: 506 of 688
Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.). Class rank: 76 of 85

vs.

McCain:
United States Naval Academy - Class rank: 894 of 899 - extracurricula activties: good boxer; four-year "Century Club" Member (the most Demerits)

& Palin:
Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester
North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study
University of Idaho - 2 semesters - journalism
Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester
University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in journalism. Class rank: unknown

Now, which team are you going to hire ?

We need members of Congress who will stand with the super majority of Americans over the special interests in Washington. McCain and Obama's plans to offer Amnesty to illegal aliens must be stopped by Congress because if 15 million illegal aliens are turned into voters, Americans will have no hope of future border security or immigration enforcement.

Democracy has a vulnerable underbelly and that is being conguered by a neighbor through open borders and lax immigration policy.

Now the good news. It's a lot better way to be conguered that through war or genicide.

It is hard to be any more "elite" than a Rothschild.

Their name is synonymous with privilege, power and all encompassing elitism.

As such, their opinion on who we choose to lead us for the next four years really doesn't mean much.

Thank goodness someone FINALLY noticed what all the poverty stricken cities have in common. The Democrats began raising welfare payments in the late 60s to early 70s to perpetuate themselves in power. They do it by giving handouts and maintaining a permanent and evergrowing underclass. Rather than offer jobs and education to poor people, they give them handouts - just enough to survive. The people keep voting in the same crooks over and over. If you want to know what the country will look like after a couple years of Obama rule, visit Detroit. Here's what you'll see:

1) run down buildings.
2) roads in such disrepair, you can barely drive them without ruining your car.
3) people begging in the streets
4) anyone who could possibly afford to get out of the city has done so. There is no one left but the hopeless, despondent poor people.
5) a high school drop out rate of 75%- the highest in the nation.

I know most Obama supporters believe they are doing something good by trying to elect a man who is selling "change" but that is because you (as well as Obama) do not understand economics. Socialistic countries always have a few wealthy politicians who run things, and the masses are always poor.

Please do NOT do this to our country. If you do, everyone will leave except for those who can't. Then there will be no money left here, and the U.S. will look like a third world country.

Leftwing Voter Registration Fraud On Rise

Thu, 09/18/2008 - 12:07 — Judicial Watch

For the second time in as many months a left-wing community group largely funded with U.S. tax dollars has submitted fake voter registration cards, this week in a key battleground state.
The Chicago-based Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), where Barack Obama worked as a “community organizer,” has long been investigated for falsifying information to register new voters during nationwide drives and authorities are especially vigilant in a presidential election year.
This week officials in New Mexico’s most populous county (Bernalillo) notified federal authorities that more than 1,000 fraudulent voter registration cards were submitted to the clerk’s office. ACORN, which pays workers for each registration, is the prime suspect since it has handled thousands of new voter registrations in New Mexico since January.
In fact, it was a phony registration card submitted by ACORN last month that led Bernalillo authorities to scrutinize others. The group, which promotes a welfare state, submitted a forged card for a former Albuquerque District Court judge who has voted in the same precinct for almost two decades.
County workers subsequently discovered that at least 1,100 new registrations list Social Security numbers for people already in the county’s database of registered voters, names of registered voters with different birth dates and addresses that don’t exist.
Last month Milwaukee’s election chief turned in dozens of ACORN voter registration workers to the district attorney’s office for prosecution after they submitted falsified registration cards. The new registrations included dead people, voters that were already registered and many included fabricated drivers license numbers.
ACORN has been implicated in similar voter fraud schemes in more than a dozen states, including Missouri, Ohio and Washington. In fact, the group settled the largest case of voter fraud in the history of Washington State last year after seven workers were caught submitting about 2,000 fake registration forms.
Incidentally, as a nonprofit ACORN is supposed to be nonpartisan but the group ardently endorses its former star community organizer for president.

Barack Obama Holds Lead Among Arab American Vote

Barack Obama Holds Lead Among Arab American Vote Historic Shift Toward Democratic Party Continues WASHINGTON - September 18, 2008 - Democratic candidate Barack Obama holds a substantial 21 point lead over Republican John McCain among Arab American voters. This was one of the findings of a poll of Arab American voters conducted by Zogby International for the Arab American Institute.
What is your point?

You do know that a large majority of Arab Americans are Christians. However that shouldn't matter. Right?

Another point I would like to point out to you. Arabs is not a religion and that there are white, black, brown, yellow, red people who are Muslims.
