This election is terrifyingly close, because Mitt Romney has lied his way this far—offering his made up fantasy world where we can have a bigger defense budget, tax cuts for the rich, a smaller deficit, two unicorns in every garage, and all with no pain for the middle class.
But President Obama actually has a real vision for the future. And it's both inspiring and grounded in reality, because that's the difference between running for president and being the president.
This awesome video by a 'Simpsons' animator is built on the inspiring words of Obama's economic vision. Share it with everyone you know, so that when they go to the polls, they have Obama's words in their hearts.
By involving and not distracting one another, we become people of hope. At least verbally, Obama recognizes that separation of powers has become perverted by lobbyists, revolving doors and special interests. At least verbally, Obama recognizes that the state has become an "errand boy" (Bill Moyers) for the banks and that language, democracy and community are emptied in plutocracy.
