I must admit that several months ago I was an enthusiastic backer of Barack Obama. I read his books and thought perhaps he just may be what the country needs after the disastrous Bush years. However, while I still like the fellow I doubt I can vote for him owing to his most recent proposal to implement a windfall profits tax on big oil, and then use the proceed to give folks a tax rebate of $1,000 per family. Any way you cut this proposal it smacks of socialism. Together with his less than enthusiastic backing of real energy solutions makes me nervous as to what Barack would do with the economy. Things can always get worse and unfortunately what has come from the Obama campaign of late is very scary.
