Jim Graves

I find that there has been too much hysteria surrounding the Obama election. Some people have suggested he is some sort of Manchurian candidate who has been groomed to destroy the United States. Others have claimed he is the second coming of Karl Marx.

Its just fear. Unfortunately too many people are scared of change and evolution.

Obama is not a radical or the death knell of capitalism or Western civilization. He's not going to fix the world either. I'll be happy if he get us out of Iraq and helps keep jobs here at home in the US.

That's the URL for my travel blog focusing on Costa Rica


You had me at 'postulates'


I just don't understand how Obama became the "radical" in this election. It's a bit frightening that some view having voted for change equating to having voted for the end of America. If that's the case, I proudly say I voted for the end of America... At least the end of the America of the past 8 years. No more are we being manipulated by fear. The majority of us voted with the passion of hope in our hearts.
