Every smear promoted against Barack Obama only galvanizes his supporters. What the McCain campaign does not understand is that Barack Obama represents every American who ever felt marginalized.
Every woman who was been raped. Every woman that survived breast cancer. Every man and woman who
had to work 2 and 3 jobs to make ends meet. Every soldier who went to Iraq and knew it was wrong and had to do it anyway. Every African-American who was subject to racism (and that would be every black person in America). Every Hispanic who was subject to prejudice. Every child who was ostracized
or alienated for being “different,” every elderly person made to feel obsolete and unimportant, every disabled person made to feel deficient and anyone else who was marginalized by the minority ruling class: the 1% of predominantly white, male Americans who control most of the country’s wealth
and therefore most of the power.
In the words of Mahatma Ghandi, every tyrant who ever ruled has always fallen. They are consumed by their own hatred. So when the Republicans smear Obama, it is GOOD for the Obama campaign. It just makes everyone in his campaign work that much harder. In fact, we should thank the Republicans for handing him this election.
And THAT, my friend, is why Obama will win. Just look at history and reflect upon the energy of this campaign. It is born from the negative energy that produced the opposition: prejudice, murder, hatred, hundreds of years of discrimination and violence. Now all Americans who were victimized by our fear and stupidity have a leader.
Yes, there is danger, because the minority ruling class is fearful and does not want to lose power. However,
just like Ghandi, King, and Bobby Kennedy before him, Obama will not lose
because he has the spirit of all those leaders within him.
