We are living in a new era now. It is an era of hope, justice and peace. An era of social and economic justice. An era where the wicked are punished and the innocent are free from fear and injustice.
2008 marks the end of the Bush Regime and American Imperialism. A time known as BO or "Before Obama". A terrible time of the sickness America inflicted upon the world.
Obama will heal the world of the wound known as America.

The sun is setting as I sit down with Barack Obama, the next President of the United States in his hotel room. Obama drinks from a water bottle and leans back in his chair. He is tired but still alert after a long day of campaigning. His face is relaxed and content. “We are almost there,” he tells me.
Election Day is two weeks away. The sun may be setting on this particular day but it is clear to all but a few that a new day is beginning soon not only for America but for the world.
It has been six months since I joined the Obama campaign. Sometimes it feels like lifetime ago. So much has happened. There has been a great deal of traveling and I’ve seen more of America than I have ever cared to see. I am still astounded by how backwards and flawed this nation is. I express this to Senator Obama.
“I understand. Believe me, I feel the same way.” Obama pauses and puts down the water bottle and rubs his eyes with both hands. “There is so much that I must do and sometimes I don’t know if eight years will be enough.”
The McCain people continue to claim Obama is a socialist or that he will take money from plumbers. “They do not understand,” Obama says. “I wish sometimes I could just grab one of them by the shoulders and just yell, ‘wake up and get with the program!’”.
“Some people get it, a lot of them actually. They know what I must do. America is broken. Look at the rallies.” And he’s right. I don’t believe any of his appearances this week attracted less than 10,000 people.
“We have walked down a long path and I don’t mean just you and me. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, W. E. B. Dubois, they all started the path and I can finish it”.
I tell Obama the legend of Amon-Ra, a God of ancient Egypt who attains the characteristics of all other gods. “Sometimes you remind me of him,” I tell him.
Obama smiles and looks out the window. Outside is America; a land that needs a wise and just leader.
He is coming.

I regret that I have not had more time to write about Barack Obama's beautiful family. I've only met Michelle Obama a few times this year. Most of my time is spent traveling with Senator Obama and doing research for him.
Make no mistake: She is a beautiful African woman and a true African Queen. She has given Barack Obama two lovely African Princesses, Malia and Natasha.
Barack Obama has been a good African husband and father and he will rule America's children with wisdom and kindness.

- We are committed to the TRUTH
- We are committed to JUSTICE
- We are committed to true RECONCILIATION.
- We are bound to a non-negotiable COMMITMENT TO AFRICA.
- We stand for EDUCATION.
- We want CULTURAL EDUCATION.
- We are committed to the HISTORICAL EDUCATION OF AFRICAN PEOPLE IN DIASPORA.
- We are committed to LIBERATION.
- We are committed to RESTORATION.
- We are committed towards ECONOMIC PARITY.
The latest example is the LIE told by Ashley Todd, a white woman who claimed that she was attacked by an African man.
History is filled of many such lies and deceptions. This is nothing more than attempt to lynch Barack Obama.
A Portrait of the Lynching Era, 1880-1930 The lynching era encompasses roughly the five decades between the end of Reconstruction and the beginning of the Great Depression. During these years we estimate that there were 12,018 separate incidents of lynching where African men, women and children met their deaths in the grasp of whites.
Lynchings were concentrated in a swath running through Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana: the region often referred to as the 'Black Belt'
Violence against Africans served four functions within southern society during the lynching era:
- to eradicate specific persons accused of crimes against the white community;
- as a mechanism of state-sanctioned terrorism designed to maintain a degree of leverage over the African population;
- to eliminate or neutralize competitors for social, economic, or political rewards; and
- as a symbolic manifestation of the unity of white supremacy

To those who have rejected the truth you have no reason to fear Barack Obama. He is wise and just and he will follow the principals followed by his African forefathers. Barack Obama is the son of Kings and Queens who started human civilization thousands of years ago. Barack Obama remembers his heritage and his obligations to the Truth, Justice and the Future.

An African Proverb tell us: “Then command the servant, thusly: Make an Elder's staff causing my son to stand in my place I will instruct him through the speech of the listeners and the counsels of the first of the ancients who listened to the divinities. In so doing troubles will be removed from the people.”
Barck Obama is here now to listen, to instruct and will lead you to your new life.

Police departments in cities across the country are beefing up their ranks for Election Day, preparing for possible civil unrest and riots after the historic presidential contest.
Some worry that if Barack Obama loses and there is suspicion of foul play in the election, violence could ensue in cities with large African populations. Others based the need for enhanced patrols on past riots in urban areas (following professional sports events) and also on Internet rumors.
Democratic strategists and advocates for African voters say they understand officers wanting to keep the peace, but caution that excessive police presence could intimidate voters.

My proudest role in the Obama campaign is that of a liaison representative between Senator Obama and the African Union. The AU will play a key role in reshaping American policy towards Africa in the Obama administration.
I have been assured by Jakaya Kikwete, Chairman of the Assembly of the AU that they are prepared and able to render all assistance needed should Obama's election on November 4th be interfered with.

Make no mistake: It is Barack Obama's destiny to be President of the United States. Justice demands it. The Truth demands it. The World demands it.
Oppressed peoples throughout the world are looking to Obama for hope. For Justice. For an end to war. For America to stop attacking the world and for it to start being a just and peaceful member of the community of nations.
If for some reason he is not elected then there will be a cry of outrage so great that America and all its racist institutions will shake and collapse. It will be the end of America and God will damn it for its final and most terrible sin.

Obama will bring social, moral and economic justice to America. America has never known true justice and Obama will change that.
America clearly needs economic justice now more than ever.
Obama is following the Africa principal of UJIMA which is collective work and responsibility. That is, to build and maintain our community together to make our sister and brothers’ problems our problems and to solve them together.
I have helped Senator Obama get in touch with his Africa heritage and as President, he will rule with the wisdom of his African forefathers.

And once there he saw for the first time civilized peoples who could speak and write. Who wore clothes and who built magnificent cities and temples that would last for thousands of years. Who practiced medicine and who charted the stars. These civilized Africans were of black skin and today they are still African, where ever they may be.
The white man, slow and unthinking, could not comprehend what they saw. Their fear and uncertainty turned to fear and eventually turned to hate.
The Africans who encountered these white people took pity on them. They fed them, bathe them, gave them shelter and taught them basic language skills and how to use basic tools. And then the Africans returned them to Europe in an African ship and thought no more of these curious and simple white creatures.
What these Africans did not know at the time was that their acts of kindness planted seeds of destruction. In time, the white man in Europe grew into a cruel beings who would return to Africa in ships of their own to enslave and kill Africans and to steal their knowledge.
Today we see simple and cruel white people who refuse to vote and support Barack Obama; a son of the Kings and Queens of Africa.
