Last night during his acceptance speech Barack Obama said:
That's the promise of America the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation; The fundamental belief that I am my brother's keeper; I am my sister's keeper.
That's the promise we need to keep.
Ironically, Obama's actual brother lives in a hut in Kenya on less than one dollar per month.
The Italian edition of Vanity Fair said that it had found George Hussein Onyango Obama living in a hut in a ramshackle town of Huruma on the outskirts of Nairobi.
Mr Obama, 26, the youngest of the presidential candidate's half-brothers, spoke for the first time about his life, which could not be more different than that of the Democratic contender.
"No-one knows who I am," he told the magazine, before claiming: "I live here on less than a dollar a month."
According to Italy's Vanity Fair his two metre by three metre shack is decorated with football posters of the Italian football giants AC Milan and Inter, as well as a calendar showing exotic beaches of the world.
This leaves me with the fear that "my brother's keeper" is just Democrat-speak for higher taxes and more government programs. It sounds like Obama intends to be much more generous with taxpayer money than he is with his own money towards his own family.
