Today, remember them. Tomorrow, remember what you are fighting for!

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;

who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;"

Isaiah 5:20

There seems to be growing momentum around the country for Barack Obama to get mad. I mean balls-to-the-walls, bare-knuckled, white hot rage.

The thinking goes that if Obama continues to play nice, and McCain keeps dragging this campaign into reality TV sophistication while flat out lying about his opponent, the "swift-boating" will work and we will wake up in November, shaking our heads and wondering what went wrong...again.

When John McCain accused Obama of wanting to teach sex-ed to kindergartners that should've been the last straw.

Many believe there is some danger in getting angry, especially for a candidate like Obama. While McCain could get angry (and has) and that is seen by many as being indicative of his leadership ability, if Obama gets mad the potential is that the public will see nothing more than an "angry black man" full of residual rage and bitterness.

Bull shit!

There is far too much at stake! Since the press will not do their job and, by all appearances, are in the back pocket of McCain it is time for Obama to reach deep within and unleash a righteous rage the likes of which we have never seen before.

If that takes 527s calling Sarah Palin the flat out liar that she is, so be it. If it takes at every press conference calling John McCain a once honorable man but no longer honorable, fine!

I don't mean to suggest that Obama abandon his message of hope. But hope is not relevant unless it is contrasted by despair. And despair is what eight years of Bush --who played to our basest instincts, who called upon our darkest selves, who wrapped himself in the flag carrying a cross -- has given this nation.

John McCain has become the man he once despised. And for that, he deserves not our vote nor our respect.

Fight like hell, Obama! Our nation is on your shoulders now and losing is not an option
