If you want, skip ahead to the quotes with nice You Tube videos to go along with them. If you’re up for it you can wade through my rhetoric.
As the election nears I have a growing sense of dread. I’m not the most insightful person and I am certainly not the most politically active. I was more involved in politics as a child than I am now to be honest (ironically, going door to door with Vivian Figures who despite being a very nice person is not someone I want in Congress). However, I have been a observer of politics since my childhood. I participated in some campaigns, I visited the state capital in Montgomery and went from politician to politician as my dad lobbied. I listened to Rush for hours on end, even stayed up to watch his TV show. As I grew up and spent time listening to Neil Bortz and broadened the scope of my understand and beliefs through debate. It was through a debate in late 2000 or early 2001 that I had a issue over Palestinians and Israelis came up. I parroted that it was a land that had been fought over for years and years and I didn’t really see favoring one side over the other because of that. The retort was that the Palestinians that were laying claim were never landowners in Israel, they were essentially a political ploy that Israel’s neighbors were using against Israel. This particular tidbit led me on a path to examining what I was going on in the region.
I could spell it all out but suffice it to say I became acutely aware of the threat that radical Islam posed and the through connect the dots I was soon visiting Taliban sites and educating myself on what was going on in Afghanistan. I grew increasingly agitated, some people questioned me as I ranted about places, people and things some of them didn’t know existed. Taliban, Afghanistan, Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda… It wasn’t always easy to find out things that were going on, the media did a very poor job of reporting. In fact I had to resort to going to Taliban and Al-Qaeda sites to see what they were saying (they had some translations). The frustrating was two-fold. We were facing a huge problem and no one even knew about it! I made my last pre 9/11 rant on 6/11. It was about the Taliban and Afghanistan and I doubt anyone was paying attention. The world changed for many people a few days later, but it didn’t change for me. I knew the threat was looming for a while…
I have a greater sense of dread leading into the election. I wish Obama was a moderate Democrat. I wish I could view him as I view Joe Lieberman, someone I disagree with but someone I know at least has the best interest of his country at heart. Obama’s actions, words and associations have left serious doubt as to what he intends to do as President. He words have made it clear he’s a socialist, but I have contended for quite some time that he might very well be a full fledged Marxist. Unfortunately, we won’t find out how he drives until we give him keys to the car. If you judge Obama by the company he keeps I think it’s fair to wonder if he even likes America. Does he favors other countries interests over our own? He’s pledged to double foreign aid, he’s got strong ties to countries like Kenya, he’s campaigned in other countries… by his own behavior with the pledge, his allegiance can quite literally be challenged. Reverent Wright was his spiritual mentor, his mother who helped shape his world views preferred to live outside of America. William Ayers, a communist and unrepentant terrorist helped launch his political career. There’s even evidence that Obama ran with the aid of a socialist party as well. A Obama fundraiser was former director of the official PLO press agency WAFA, who described Obama as “sympathetic”.
I can point out that in Obama’s own words he was a coke snorting dog eater. I think these do add up to present great concerns. Dig deeper and as you connect the dots you see a scary picture. Look into Reverent Wrights associates and his beliefs and teachings and you have to ask yourself how Obama could associate with this man for 20 years without sharing some of those beliefs (such as a fondness for Farrakhan). You listen to Michelle Obama say she’s proud of America for the first time in her life and wonder if he’d choose to marry someone who held this view unless they had some common ground. You must ponder how Obama would so much as step foot in the house of a communist terrorist.
For some people these things will not hold much weight. They won’t connect the dots and they will, as many continue to do, give Obama the benefit of a doubt. Well, let’s listen to Obama speaking in his own words and then arrive to your own conclusions. I won’t try to tell anyone who to vote for. This is a deeply personal choice. However, one does need to be aware of what your vote might lead to. To be clear I am deeply fearful of a Obama presidency. I think the country for the most part has been duped and is not aware of who he really is.
Please read or listen to these quote and in the least consider if this is the direction you want things to go.
Barak Hussein Obama II: “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody”
Barak Hussein Obama II: “If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court. I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed people, so that now I would have the right to vote…. But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth”
Barak Hussein Obama II: “Let me sort of describe my overall policy… If somebody wants to build a coal power plant they can, it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they are going to be charged a huge sum.”
Barak Hussein Obama II: “It (the Constitution) reflected a fundemental flaw in this country”
Barak Hussein Obama II: “It’s not surprising then that they get bitter and they cling to guns, or religion or antipathy towards people who aren’t like them.”
Barak Hussein Obama II:“We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful (as the military)”
Michelle Obama:“For the first time in my adult lifetime I am proud of my country”
William Ayers:“I’m as much a anarchist as I am a Marxist… Is one of those regrets that I took extreme measures against the United States at a time of tremendous crisis? No it is not. I don’t regret that…”
Barak Hussein Obama II’s former reverend and spiritual mentor Jeremiah Wright: “God Damn America!”
If you can make it through those quotes and you want to vote for Obama by all means do. However, if you disagree with these sentiments then it is incumbent upon you to try to prevent this man from becoming our next president. I really hope this doesn’t become another I told you so…
