A Tragedy of Hope
1. Make Government Open and Transparent
2. Make it "Impossible" for Congressmen to slip in Pork Barrel Projects
3. Meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public
4. No more secrecy
5. Public will have 5 days to look at a Bill
6. You'll know what's in it
7. We will put every pork barrel project online
5. Definitely No
7. No (source)
1. Out of Iraq in 18 months
2. Close Guantanamo, end Torture
3. No Wiretapping without a Warrant
4. Remove some provisions of the anti-liberty Patriot Act
5. Expand war into Pakistan/continue the "good" Afghan war
1. Nope, 50000 'non-combat' (whatever that means) troops still there beyond 2011, and the massive bases etc
2. No. You can still be 'suspected' of terrorism and tortured. (All Are Free or None Are Free, pro-torture folks)
3. No. Two fingers to the civil libertarians again
4. No. Why would he do that when he voted for the Patriot Act's renewal?
5. Yes. Seems the word of the state is much more reliable when it is expanding its power, eh?

And You Tell Me There's No Suppressed Technology?
It's another of those 'conspiracy theories' that good citizens don't notice. Imagine the standard of living if all the secret technology was released to the public...we'd be "free and independent" as JFK said! No more poverty anywhere! Can you imagine being sick enough to withhold such technology from society just to maintain your position of control? (Bearing in mind that we don't know just how much technological capability is being withheld, because, duh, it's secret.) What did Nikola Tesla really develop?
Individual Liberty? But that's "selfish"!
No, we need to look after each other voluntarily without having a government do all that at gunpoint. Sounds absurd at first but soon you realise that the reason it sounds so is because of the very unfree nature of our current existence. Envision greater possibilities! Ok, some kind of massive wake-up would be needed before this kind of free, responsible, uncontrollable society could emerge. And that's what we are seeing day by day in the world - a massive waking up of the previously enslaved masses (including myself I must add!)
