My question for Barack

I just posted my first debate question on Google's Moderator app.

For Barack Obama:
There's a lot of concern about your ties to Marxism. For many, your potential as a black role model outweighs those concerns. Can you assure us that you will drive a message of "you can do anything", instead of "you need the government to help you"?

I don't find much that I agree with in either candidate. So, I feel that out of this election the best potential for good is the effect that Barack could have on black youth. But, if his message is the typical, socialist, "the world is so unfair that you cannot do anything for yourself without my help" then I think he could actually do more harm than good.
