"Mr. Hope and Change" wants to create a nation humbled; humiliated, casting-aside capitalism and individual freedoms for one where ??we the people?? are government controlled. This would be a system that genuflects mediocrity, steals personal aspiration and opportunity, and punishes those who strive to succeed.A gallon of regular gasoline the day Obama was inaugurated was $1.79 on average in the U.S. Today that price is $3.59, a 100.6% increase.The number of food stamp recipients has risen since Obama took office from 31,983,716 to 43,200,878, a 35.1% jump.

- You WILL eat our healthy lunch, it's for the greater good. Your taste and preference is irrelevant.
- You WILL use our eco-friendly lightbulbs, it's for the greater good. If you won't we'll just ban the old ones outright.
- You WILL pay more for gas or get a "green" vehicle, it's for the greater good. If you don't we'll keep interfering with domestic oil exploration and let the price of oil keep shooting up until you have no choice but to comply.
- You WILL pay tax dollars to bail out the UAW, it's for the greater good. Especially for us come election time.
- You WILL pay 60% in taxes, it's for the greater good. Unless you are a typical Democrat voter, then you will likely get more back than you pay in taxes, but don't you dare call it welfare!
- You WILL make home loans to people with bad credit, it's for the greater good. Then when the stock market finally chokes on the trillions of mortgage backed securities we made you create we'll still blame you for it.
- You WILL pay tax dollars to fund abortions, it's for the greater good. If you dare to disagree we'll say your against women's health screenings.
