They voted for a man, who few knew what in his past motivated his beliefs and his heart.
Barack's fathers life in Kenya was dedicated to fighting colonialist oppression at the hands of countries like England, France and by surrogate the United States.
Barack lived in a 3rd world country during his formative years from 6 to 10. He then lived the balance of his youth in an annexed territory, Hawaii.
How many in Peoria can relate to his experiences, and his view of the world that colonialists are the oppressor.
I personally believe that Americans are gluttonous and selfish. Our poor are wealthier than most middle class in the world, and our middle class consume much of the worlds resources.
If you want a President who believes as I do, vote for Obama, for he hates the top 1%, and believes that America is the worlds top 1%. At his core, he hates the country that he finds himself President of. At every turn he will try to achieve his fathers goal of leveling the worlds resources.
If you love America, vote accordingly.
