  • I'm not you Obama freak! Lol! This has been going on long before Obama. I don't care who put all of these in place, I only care that we collectively unite for freedom and liberty. It's important to know what's going on in the world. You need to look past pro or anti Obama, the world does not revolve around him. This didn't start with him and won't end with him.
