Re: Reasons to Vote Against Obama
- Find someone that is a better candidate & I might vote for them. If the best that McCain can come up is more of what has put the country into recession, we would be better off just shutting the government down. Why anyone would want the country to go into depression is beyond me...~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If people's beliefs are invested in lies and delusions,
how will they know the truth when they hear it?
And how do you inform people when they refuse to believe the truth?

June 27th, 2008
This post will be updated throughout the campaign. Bookmark it now.
I politics, it is more important to vote against bad actors than it is to vote for heroes. That said, I present an ongoing and occasionally updated list of reasons to vote against Barack Obama (don’t worry, I’ll pick on McCain as well):
Obama is a racist: Obama uses race as a tool and a wedge to divide people instead of uniting them, talks like a bigot, and has kept company with some radical racists.
Obama is a liar: Last year Obama promised to use public campaign financing if his opponent did. McCain is a champion of public financing, and committed to doing so. Once McCain locked in to this lower level of funding, Obama switched in order to raise ungodly amounts of cash (which if unspent in the election can be used for graft) and blamed his duplicity a non-existent issue.
Obama associates with known terrorists: Obama has a long-term relationship with former Weatherman William Ayers. The Weathermen were a violent revolutionary terrorist group, responsible bombings in the United States. It is no surprise that the Weathermen have a socialist-to -communist political philosophy (notice how Ayers, in the photograph to the right, is standing on the American flag in a dirty alley — quite apropos for a terrorist).
Obama breaks under pressure: The presidency is a tough job. But Obama can’t handle the pressure of a simple debate. When debating Hillary in her attack mode, he stumbled badly. He is running away from McCain’s challenge for town hall debates which are designed to put candidates under pressure. If he can’t handle a simple debate, how will he handle Osama bin Laden, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or even a pack of Girl Scouts selling cookies?
Obama is at best a socialist, and leans communist: As if his terrorist and religious friends were not unsavory enough, Obama has career-long relationships with any number of people who believe government power is more important that individual liberty, which is antithetic to Americans. Obama’s proposed policies rack-up about a trillion dollars in new spending, and by his design this spending buys a stack of new and omnipotently oppressive regulatory regimes and restrictions on individual liberties. In short, his proposals make people poorer while enslaving them.
Obama keeps company with criminals: Granted, being a politician in Chicago automatically makes you a criminal associate. But Obama’s seedy criminal friends almost equal the number of Obama’s seedy ecclesiastic confidants. Most recently was Obama’s buddy Tony Rezko, convicted 16 times on corruption charges for influence peddling. Obama and Rezko’s intertwined and unusually profitable real estate arrangements are highly suspect and indicate Obama is not immune to quasi-criminal activity, if not the fully involved variety. The fact that Rezko’s criminal reputation preceded Obama’s entry into politics, and the fact that Obama created a relationship with Rezko despite this, shows alarmingly poor judgment on his part.
Obama doesn’t understand basic Americanism: Symbolism is important in every culture, including the inclusive American variety. A case in point concerning Obama’s indifference to American sensitivities is when Obama hijacked the Presidential seal. Obama reformatted, adding a new Latin phase. Aside from his ham-handed attempt to prematurely presume the mantel of office, he committed three symbolic sins: he co-opted a sacred symbol, he desecrated it with his campaign logo (see the rather spooky Obama ‘O’ on the eagle’s chest) and worst of all, he swapped the uniting phrase of the nation E Pluribus Unum (”out of many, one”) with Vero Possumus (”in truth we are able”). The reason this linguistic assault is heinous is that the message “out of many, one” is the recognition that America is composed of people from all over the world, and that we co-exist peacefully (are one) when all are free. To remove that national mantra means he doesn’t respect the basic principles of America (which may explain why Obama’s wife said she had never been proud of America).
Obama makes very stupid personal decisions: He has admitted to using cocaine (widely known to be powerfully addictive) and he cannot give up cigarettes. Can a man with such little self-control be an effective leader of the free world?
Obama doesn’t even know who he is: Take something as simple as race. In order to land votes, Obama calls himself black. But only Obama’s absentee father was black — his mother was white. That makes him mulatto. Yet when Obama is race baiting the public, he won’t use the accurate term to describe his genetics. Let’s be nice and simply assume his cocaine snorting blew-out a few brain cells.
Obama has no experience: The President is an executive, and as such must manage the largest organization on the planet. Barack has zero executive experience, and has only held elected offices for a decade. He has only been a U.S. Senator for two years, and he was absent for nearly 1/2 the votes that occurred during that period. He lacks the worldliness necessary to lead and command.
1. I would add that Obama is someone without a scintilla of experience in governing anything! He is a power hungry communist seeking the next higher office after he is elected. WHO is behind this person financially? Probably Soros….
