This soldier speaks his mind:
In addition to that, I have serious doubts about Senator Obama, for the following reasons:
Much as I'd like to see the US with a black President,
I cannot bring myself to vote for someone who cannot or will not provide his birth certificate:
I cannot bring myself to vote for someone who attends a racist church for 20 YEARS and then claims to not believe what the pastor believes. Yeah, right!
I cannot bring myself to vote for a man who is married to a woman who is "finally" proud of this country, and who wrote this:
Her thesis and the church they attended for 20 years tells a lot more about their true feelings about this country than any campaign promise.
I cannot bring myself to vote for someone who blames the previous administration for the price of gasoline, instead of the the (long awaited, encouraged, and anticipated) true cause, the success of capitalism in China and their resultant increased demand for energy.
I cannot bring myself to vote for someone who blames the previous adminstration for the mortgage crisis, while ignoring 1) his own, ACORN's, and his party's lawsuits against the mortgage industry for not giving out enough high-risk loans to people who can't afford a mortgage and should never have gotten one, and 2) the efforts of this administration to put the brakes on this crisis (which he voted against!):
I used to be a proud Democrat, but the party has fallen far from what it was, reflected in JFK's statement, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."
Today's Democrats are nothing but closet Socialists who think that the government should be anything and everything to everyone. Socialism does not work. If you want to live under a Socialist .gov, then please move to Eurpoe and LEAVE MY COUNTRY ALONE!
Please do not vote for Obama! If you don't want to vote fr McCain, fine, but vote for anyone but Obama! His record in the Senate (when he even bothered to actually vote) does not reflect what he says.
Actions speak louder that words, folks, and this man will say anything to get elected, even if it flies in the face of every vote he has ever cast, and if elected, with a Democratic Congress, he'll be free to do as he pleases, taking our hard-earned money and "spreading the wealth around".
If you want to spread your wealth to people who don't deserve it, fine, but keep your hands off of mine!
Bear in mind - it is far easier to remedy mistakes of the past than it is to correct mistakes in current reasoning. OBAMA has the chance to appoint 4 or 5 Supreme Court Justices. Do you understand the ramifications of that? Do you understand that the US is the last bastion on free thought in the modern world? I'm not kidding, it truly is. Do you believe that people should have the right to govern themselves? Do you believe that you can make the best decisions for yourself and your family? If so, vote for the people (McCain/Palin) who trust you, rather than the people who think they can spend your hard-earned money better than you can.
