In the News And thus, our true colours reveal. Since Obama was the young newcomer, technically savvy, many of us were hoping that he might support patent and/or copyright reform. In case our story earlier on this subject didn't already tip you off, this certainly will: Obama has sided squarely with the RIAA/MPAA lobby, and backs ACTA. No copyright and/or patent reform for you, American citizens!

There were two candidates who MIGHT have been a force for some decent change, Paul and Kucinich (sp?). But neither of them are "pretty" so they were not chosen as the party candidates. Shame.

You think McCain and Obama are any more attractive than either of those two?! Seriously... the 2008 campaign was the influenced by "good looks" less than any campaign since Grover Cleveland.

If Paul had won the Republican primary, the Republicans would have won in a landslide.

At least the people would have had a better choice to counter Obama -- instead of someone that was just going to stay the collision course set by Bush! (Don't even get me started on Sarah Palin)
