    by Barack Obama
  • “The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.”

    by Barack Obama
  • “You can choose a future where more Americans have the chance to gain the skills they need to compete, no matter how old they are or how much money they have.

  • “My family, frankly, they weren’t folks who went to church every week. My mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew but she didn’t raise me in the church, so I came to my Christian faith later in life and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead.”
    by Barack Obama

    by Barack Obama
