Whose President will Barack Obama be?
Will he be America's, Africa's, Indonesia's, or the entire world's President? What, exactly, are his plans for America on the world stage?
Are Americans really ready to elect a black man and install him in a highly sensitive office merely on the basis of his race or color? Just how low can we go with Michelle's "honey" and "baby daddy?"
When will Americans demand trustworthy elected leaders who will do the job they have sworn under oath to get done? Housecleaning time is here and now. The bar is too low.
Why do the media make so much over the fact that Obama and his wife and pundits who graduated with law degrees are lawyers if, in fact, their law licenses are no longer active by virtue of their stepping aside to work in another field? And, therefore, in many states it is against the law for them to even dispense legal opinions or practice law without a license or to hold themselves out to be lawyers without having an active, updated license with legal permission for them to practice law. No one is above the law, not even lawyers.
Why do Congresspersons and Senators who know that they are no longer actively practicing lawyers receive so much credence to enact and pass legislation which adversely impacts the lives of American citizens, with impunity and without accountability or recourse?
Now is the time for voting American citizens to stop playing around with America and our future. Who looks out for our rights to protect them from the abuses by those in authority, whether political or spiritual and whether local, state, or federal? Lawmakers are having a field day at the expense of the lives of Americans both at home and abroad whose needs go unaddressed year in and year out --- unless the news media believe it might make a dramatic, noteworthy story to draw viewers.
Well, it seems to me that Americans are at the water's edge and it is time to sink or swim or drain the swamp!
At such a time as this Presidential Election 2008, it is critical that we sweep aside political correctness to have this nation remain as a respected, strong leader in the free world with all of the rights and privileges pertaining thereto for her citizens.
Do we need "Change?" Or Do we need to change?
The following has long been a charge sounded with many incoming newly elected administrations; however, with Barack Obama we have seen too much proof from his own lips that he will lead this nation into its most vulnerable position than at any other time in its more than centuries old Godly Constitutional Republic.
Obama does not need to be the President of the United States of America and he must not become such. And, among so many reasons to block and stop him, here are a few, as follows:
- Obama has proved to be untruthful about his own childhood.
- The man has reevaluated his life and found it to be far less than what Americans expect from any man of the highest order, which is the President of this nation.
And why would Americans fall for such a ploy?
This is the question which is most asked, as Obama hurdles through the mind (sic) fields he continues to set in place to confuse and distract the people who have the temerity to want to dig further into his background to get at the truth about who he is, where he comes from, and where he's going and wants to take us?
Somehow he keeps dodging any questions that matter when assessing his character and integrity.
- One such question he needs to answer decisively is what exactly does he mean by the word, "Change?"
- The second such question is just how close is he to his cousin Raila Odinga in Nairobi, Kenya, Africa, and his plans to enable him to totally control that government?
- The most important question of all which Obama should answer is whether he has made any kind of a deal with Odinga to partner with him and his corrupt government to combine our nation's resources with Odinga's; and, then, turn his back on America to work on solving Africa's problems but with many more American taxpayer dollars?
- The question I most want answered by Barack Obama is how did he happen to have written out the same plan for America that Odinga wrote for Kenya? Then Obama must answer this question regarding the Constitution of the United States -- Does Obama plan to leave it intact? Or will he work to change the American form of government into a parliamentarian form and set himself up as prime minister with total control over every phase of this government, including his oversight of whomever he appoints to step into the Presidency in his place in order to set himself over the United States Congress and the United States Senate?
Will Obama work to change the laws and courts to make it legal for homosexuals to enter into traditional "marriage" and civil unions?
Will Obama work to overturn the "Don't ask - Don't tell" policy against gays serving in the military?
It appears that Obama has already answered most of these questions at one time or another during his run for the Oval Office. However, Americans must remain aware that, should Obama be elected President of the United States, the price we will pay as a nation is ruination and total destruction of America as we know it.
Rowe vs Wade -- Infants yet unborn will never have the chance to live under an Obama administration, because his own position as a pro-choice advocate is firmly set in stone.
There will be plenty of reasons to never allow Obama to be in control of the United States legislature and the budgetary oversight. And, what is more, even if Obama voluntarily took a lie detector test, he is still not to be believed.
Nevertheless, he has taken the word of all those in the know about him and advocated it either be ignored or pooh pooed as lies and smear tactics used to create fear in the listeners. As a result, those who do know the truth of the matter and report it have been scoffed at by Obama and his hired supporters and attack dogs who have no compunction about "blaming their victims" for those things which they, themselves, have engaged in. Mind games is their raison d'etre and they are good at it.
Many journalists and pundits in the mainstream news media have aided and abetted Obama in his quest by their speaking for him instead of remaining as objective journalists who report the news about Obama's stated intentions and his demonstrated means to an end.
The "Change" which Obama is talking about has to do with the most incidious kind of all. Entrance into the White House front door in much the same way as Vladimir Putin, of Russia; Hugo Chavez, of Venezuela; Obama's own "homeboy-cousin" Raila Odinga, and others that Obama has already set dates in place to openly meet with them as the President of the United States. He has already said that is what he would do as soon as he takes office. Believe him! Do not excuse him.
Obama has worked his African heritage ancestry from America to Hawaii to Indonesia to Pakistan to Russia to Africa and all other countries in between without accountability. And he is now back on the Mainland where he has come close to realizing his "Father's Dreams" of disassembling the free world, of which America is the leader.
Come after me, Obama, with your attack hounds and it is just the proof needed in the light of day, as you creep in the dark of night towards all of those you perceive to be your enemies and whom you wish to silence by the full weight of the law and police authority. And, as has been said, "If they take me in the night, they will come for you in the morning."
We need to elect that person in office whose very heart cries out --- America oh how you long for patriot hearts that love without deceit and deception. And there is a black man in the pipeline whose days shall come to serve. But he will be on the side of America, Godly truth and justice, and the American people will need not fear his intentions.
Now, dear reader, if your heart faints at the very thought of a President Obama and his wife, Michelle, then you must let that hesitation be your guide. Obama is a slick playa and he will bring out all the playa haters from under that proverbial bus he threw them under along the way to the White House just to get there. But, then what?!
Too many citizens have already expressed distrust and disdain for that man during his candidacy. But, the man who steps into the Office of President must bring along his honor, integrity, trust, dependability, accountability, patriotism, and Godly values and virtues. That national Office is not a "partnership."
The late Former President Harry S. Truman realized and said, "The buck stops here." Not even his beloved wife, Bess, or his teen daughter, the late Margaret Truman Daniels, was the ultimate decider of any responsibility entrusted to President Truman by the voters. His strength and character came from God and he knew it.
And, if we have no such assurances coming from Obama, then we must let that lack of hope within our hearts towards his candidacy guide our votes against him in order to be able to go on to being fully at peace at the end of this year knowing that America is at long last residing once more in the safe and secure hands of a true patriotic candidate without having any residual doubts or fears about where he stands. And, that it is John McCain, whose faith and patriotism which has remained firm and unwavering for the good of America beyond party line, party affiliation, and self-interests.
God Bless America! America Bless Our God!
