If you're reading this, thank you.

In 2004, I started this community not long after hearing a speech from the incoming Senator from Illinois.

Now its 2008, and he's about to become the president.

You know what? Obama Rocks.

Let's fire this thing back up.

Enjoy!

Hmmmmm... I'm new, but this community does seem a little dead. Senator Obama hasn't been the news as much as he used to, so there may not be as much to talk about. But I was looking at his website and he has a blog so I thought I might post the latest entry:

A lot of times, trying to get something done here in Washington can get pretty frustrating. There's bitter partisanship, petty politics, and a general atmosphere that isn't always conducive to passing legislation that people actually care about.

But I'm happy to report that today wasn't one of those days.

Today, the Senate passed my proposal, which will be included in the transportation bill, that would make it easier for people to fill their cars with a cheaper alternative to gasoline.

Now, I know most of you are as tired as I am of pulling into a gas station and seeing that the prices are even higher than they were the last time you filled up. It's $2.19, then it's $2.24, then it's $2.35, and up and up. When will it stop? As long as we're dependent on oil from the Middle East, we don't know.

That's why we need to stop just talking about energy independence and actually do something about it.

If someone told you that you could fill your cars and trucks with fuel that's 50 cents cheaper than current gas prices, you'd jump at the chance. But what a lot of people don't know is that this option is already out there. It's called E-85, and it's a fuel made of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. It's cleaner than gasoline, it's cheaper, and most importantly, it reduces our dependence on oil from the Middle East. In fact, the Indianapolis 500 thought it was such a good alternative that pretty soon, their entire fleet will run on E-85.

Right now, there are millions of cars and trucks that can run on E-85. You might even have one yourself. They're known as "flexible fuel vehicles," and the auto industry is turning out hundreds of thousands of them every year.

Of course, the reason you're not seeing more cars run on E-85 is that we've got a severe shortage of E-85 fuel stations. While there are more than 180,000 gas stations all over America, only about 400 offer E-85.

This is where my proposal comes in. It's going to cost stations to install E-85 pumps, so we thought we'd give them a tax credit that would encourage them to do so. As more and more stations realize how popular this cheap alternative to gas is becoming, more will utilize this tax credit and install their own pumps.

We've got to get serious about energy independence. You've all heard politician after politician making speeches about it, but we shouldn't have to wait any longer to finally see progress, especially since there's so much technology out there that we can use right now to make us less dependent on oil that comes from the Mideast and more reliant on fuel that we can grow in Illinois.

I've been a fan of Barack's ever since I saw an interview with him on one of the news channels. I could tell he was something special, and after his speech at the Democratic Convention I was sure of it. He stands for everything I believe a politician should stand for. His appearance on Oprah yesterday only made me respect him more. I found myself cheering to everything he said and wishing I could continue listening to his intelligent and honest perceptive on the state of America, etc. longer than the half hour he was on. Yes, I am in love :) All I talked about to my family yesterday was what an amazing man I think he is. I know he will go far and I can't wait :D His wife Michelle is also an extremely smart and lovely woman, and he has such a beautiful family!

Have any of you read his book? I hadn't known he'd written one until yesterday and I immediately went to my library's website to reserve it, and saw there were two other people waiting on the list. I guess I am not the only fan of his around here ;)

well sorry if you missed it, it was pretty good, lots of passionate speeches from the left and the usual bull from the right, capped off by DeLay saying it was a "disgrace," "partisan," etc. and doing it with a straight face.
