- Misguided Obama Supporter -
- Disqualifies Himself -
It has been said, if you want to know someone, don't listen to what they say, find out who their friends are. Barrack Obama has had some very long friendships that should tell us exactly who he is and why I say NObama! Here are a few of those people.
OBAMA'S POOR JUDGEMENT IN FRIENDS AND MENTORS
Frank Marshall Davis - A Congressional committee on House Un-American Activities accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations. Davis was also involved with drugs and porn in Hawaii.
Obama: Davis was a young Obama mentor in Hawaii. And probably the source of Obama's drug use. He is mentioned often in Barrack's biography as "Frank".
- Obama and Ayers -
Bill Ayers - Weather Underground terrorist who bombed U.S. Capitol. Said he regretted not planting more bombs.
Obama: Political career launched in Ayers' home. Served as founding chairman on the board of Chicago Annenberg Challenge with Ayers (who aided in establishing the foundation) that blew through over $100 Million supposedly furthering Chicago education but channeled the money to outside radical education groups. The foundation's final assessment concluded that the expenditures did nothing to help Chicago students increase scholastic performance. The two also served on the board of the Woods Fund that channeled money to the Arab American Action Network and ACORN. Obama and Ayers served on a justice panel arranged by Michelle Obama and Barack even wrote a blurb for the cover of Ayers book. He now calls Ayers, "just a guy who lives in my neighborhood", but might this radical find his way on an Obama Cabinet as the Secretary of Education?
Tony Rezko - The Syrian-American Chicago slum lord who ran afoul of the law in his numerous Chicago real estate developments and dealings. Obama wrote a letter, as an Illinois Senator, supporting $14 million in taxpayer funds for Rezko to build low income housing. Most of which are now run down and uninhabitable. Rezko personally pocketed nearly $1 million. Rezko was recently convicted of corruption in his business dealings.
Obama: Obama has received well over $100,000 and maybe much, much more from Rezko in political contributions over the years. Also, Obama and Rezko's wife purchased adjoining properties on the same day while Obama was a U.S. Senator. Obama paid $300,000 under the offer price for his home but Ms. Resko paid the full price of $625,000 for the adjoining lot that was appraised at only $500,000. These transactions look suspiciously like a payoff to Obama. The Ayers' adjoining parcel can only be accessed from the Obama property and Obama eventually purchased a very small portion of the Rezko land but appears to have use of the entire parcel. The Rezko parcel is now too small to obtain a building permit. Obama calls Rezko, "a friend".
- Obama On Wright 1995 -
Rev. Jeremiah Wright - We've all heard the hate speech denouncing white America that Rev. Wright has spewed in his sermons at Trinity United Church.
Obama: Sat in Wright's church for over 20 years listening to the hate speech calling him a friend and advisor. Wright's church has ties to Marxist and Islamic individuals including naming the Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, man of the year saying, he "truly epitomized greatness." Before throwing the Reverend under the bus, Obama said, "I could no more disown Reverend Wright than I could my own Grandmother." Writer Stanley Kurtz has found records that tie the philosophies of Wright, Ayers and Obama all together in a web of hate for America.
Father Michael Pfleger - Gave a white racist like speech in Trinity United Church condescending to Hillary Clinton that was inadvertently caught on tape.
Obama: Friend and mentor to Obama. Tossed under the same bus with Rev. Wright.
Louis Farrakhan - The racist leader of the Nation of Islam is well known to espoused anti-Semite views and other hate. Farrakhan professes that whites are descended from the devil and that blacks are the chosen people of Allah. He calls Obama The Messiah.
Obama: There is evidence that not only did Barack Obama participate in Farrakhan's 1995 Washington, D.C. march but that he felt strongly enough about Farrakhan to help organize the event.
- Obama Supports Odinga -
Raila Amolo Odinga - The head of the National Muslim Leaders Forum in Kenya. He also heads a political party in Kenya dedicated to the violent overthrow of the legitimate democratic government.
Obama: In 2006 as Senator Obama made a special trip to visit this man in Kenya. Not only did Obama campaign for his friend, Odinga, he arranged for Dick Morris, a former Bill Clinton advisor, to become an Odinga campaign adviser. Obama raised $1,000,000 for Odinga who promised to change Kenya constitution to include Islamic law.
Rashid Khalidi - The Columbia University professor who was at one time the spokesman for the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and continues to openly support Palestinian terrorism against Israel. Khalidi once said of Obama, "he's the only candidate who has expressed sympathy for the Palestinian cause."
Obama: Obama has known Khalidi for 12 years and has been known to associate with the Khalidi family including babysitting their children and enjoying dinners together. Khalidi held a fund raiser in 2000 for Obama's unsuccessful bid to the U.S. House of Representatives. Obama gave a speech at a party for Khalidi making derogatory statements about Israel. A tape of that speech is in the hands of the Los Angeles Times who refuses to release it or even a transcript.
Oprah Winfrey and her New Age guru, Eckhart Tolle - Winfrey and Tolle believe the bible scriptures are no longer sacred and only the books written by Tolle are spiritually alive. The Oprah/Tolle doctrine is not a Christian doctrine.
Obama: Oprah called Obama “an evolved leader who can bring evolved leadership to our country.” She calls her relationship with Obama, "very, very personal". Is it possible Obama has bought into this Oprah/Tolle doctrine? Since he quit Trinity United Church he hasn't even hinted at his new church affiliation.
- Obama-Ayers-ACORN -
ACORN - Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, ACORN, is a radical organisation using militant methods to promote their agenda of redistribution of wealth to low-income earners. ACORN's offices in Nevada were raided one month before the election by the government for voter fraud. Currently ACORN is under investigation for voter fraud in 14 battleground states in this election cycle. ACORN also owes millions of dollars in back taxes going back decades. And guess who supposedly non-partisan ACORN endorses! That's right, Barack Obama!
Obama: Obama has ties to ACORN in a financial, legal and training capacity. Obama taught ACORN's ground force how to intimidate and manipulate government agencies and corporations into doing ACORN's bidding. Obama also sued Citi Corp. on behalf of ACORN for not meeting a quota of poor credit risk loans. It was this type of sub-prime lending that led to the U.S. economic crisis in the fall of 2008. Obama paid over $800,000 to an ACORN affiliate during the Democratic primary for get out the vote services and has his campaign attorneys trying to block the voter fraud investigations of ACORN. Obama has even provided ACORN with names of potential contributors.
- Hillary Speaks -
Throughout his childhood and by his personal choice of friends and mentors as an adult, Obama's life has been immersed in a world view of extremely radical solutions. He has made a personal choice to consort with the radical elements of society and has supported radical causes. It is well known that Senator Obama would not be qualified to receive security clearance for most government jobs due to his past associations.
If Obama's friends aren't enough to impugn the Senator's character, then maybe flipping the bird to Hillary and then John McCain is. Everyone knows you don't scratch your face with your middle finger while addressing an audience unless you intend to convey a subtle slur. How childish, Barack. Take a look at the linked videos and judge for yourself.
You can find out about more radicals Obama has funded from his foundation positions and some he uses to bundle money for his campaign.
Do you know where Obama's huge campaign funding is coming from? Is it possible that up to half of it is coming illegally from illegal foreign sources? It has be learned that Obama is accepting donations from pre-paid credit cards that are impossible to verify the owner and illegal or over the donation limit contributors can make use of these cards to break the law. Check your own credit card statements carefully to make sure you don't have fraudulent donations to Obama on your credit cards. They have been mysteriously appearing on cardholder statements around the country.
- Race Baiting -
It is estimated that Senator Obama will receive up to 90% of the African-American vote. Ironically, this is one group that the Senator has used and stepped on in his rise to power. From housing to healthcare, Obama has channeled funds to his friends and contributors to the detriment of the black community. It's important that we get this election right.
Not only are the friends and associations Barrack Obama keeps disturbing, but he has said many things while on the campaign trail to support these views that are very disturbing to me as an American. Below are a few of those quotes.
OBAMA'S STATEMENTS DEFINE HIM
In his 30 minute infomercial on October 29th, Obama made many promisies but there was nothing new and specifics where lacking. Infact, it seemed to be a lot more spin than substance.
Obama: Obama says ACORN will be invited to "help shape the agenda."
Just one more piece of evidence of Obama's complicity with ACORN and his desire to allow them to help shape an Obama Presidency.
Obama: In his book "Dreams from My Father" he wrote, "In the Muslim school, the teacher wrote to tell mother I made faces during Quranic studies,"
Really? -- I thought the Senator said he never was a Muslim or received Islamic training. Click the link to learn about his Muslim faith. Updated information on Obama's faith can be found here. And Muammar Gadhafi has some interesting comments about Senator Obama's faith and foreign campaign funding. Even in Iran Obama they are asking is Obama the "promised warrior" coming to help the Hidden Imam of Shiite Muslims conquer the world?
Obama: "You're absolutely right that John McCain has not, uh, talked about my Muslim faith."
In this interview with George Stephanopoulos, Obama didn't even correct himself, Stephanopoulos had to jump in and correct his statement. Was that a Freudian slip? Could you make such a mistake in conversation without even catching yourself? I don't think so. We have to wonder what Obama isn't telling us about himself.
- Obama Is Late -
Obama: "I apologize for being late.....,"
Obama is routinely late to committee meetings. Do you remember the kid who was always tardy in school? He was always way behind in class and Obama's going to be way behind as President. We need someone who is ON TIME and RESPONSIBLE.
Obama: "To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors...."
"....the socialist conferences I sometimes attended at Cooper Union."
"At the entrance to the auditorium, two women, one black, one Asian, were selling Marxist literature."
Obama's own words from his book "Dreams from My Father". Don't let anyone tell you that his thinking isn't far left, isn't from a Marxist/Socialist slant. His socialist connections run long and deep. If you aren't familiar with socialist or marxist philosophies, find out more here.
Speaking of Senator Obama's friends. One of his speech writers has defected from his campaign and paints an unflattering picture of what goes on behind the scenes.
Obama: "I consistently believe that when it comes to whether it's Native Americans or African-American issues or reparations, the most important thing for the U.S. government to do is not just offer words, but offer deeds,"
Does that mean he supports reparations to blacks and Native Americans? I think we will all be paying for this if Obama is elected. Obama has made previous statements about the U.S. paying reparations to african-americans.
Obama: "We can't drive our SUV's and eat as much as we want and keep our homes at 72 degrees at all times.....and then expect that all other countries are going to say OK."
That's the biggest piece of socialist/communist dogma I've ever heard come out of the mouth of a U.S. Senator. Barack, I like to eat what I want, drive what I can afford and keep my home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. And...I don't really care what the rest of the world thinks about it!
If Obama is elected his statement may be self-fulfilling. Obama wants to expand government and eliminate free trade. The only jobs he will create will be government jobs. If we are going to expand our economy we need to keep open our trading agreements with the world.
- Obama Screws Joe -
Obama: Obama's comment to a plumber planning to purchase his business asking why Obama would raise taxes on small businesses to redistribute their income, "It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance at success too. I think that when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everybody."
Obama: "John McCain and Sarah Palin they call this socialistic. "You know I don’t know when, when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness."
- Obama Then Mocks Joe -
That statement is so incredibly wrong minded. Obama says if you don't want your taxes raised then you are just selfish. Joe Biden says paying more taxes is "patriotic". Obama and Biden absolutely plan to take from those who work and sweat and take a business risk to make a decent living and give that money to those who won't! Government wealth redistribution is not only wrong, it is immorally wrong. Then, Obama didn't like Joe's comment that he didn't think increasing taxes on small business was a good idea so Obama and his "in his pocket" mainstream media investigated Joe and started launching personal attacks against him. This is a disturbing pattern Obama has of trying to discredit and silence his critics!
Don't get me wrong. Giving to those in need is a moral obligation for us all. But... America is a generous nation. We give more to those in need than any other people in the world. The decision to give and to whom is a personal one. It should not be mandated by the govenment and given to who the governemnt thinks is deserving. Government redistribution of individual wealth is not what we need from our politicians.
Barack Obama has said on several occasions that he intends to redistribute income or redistribute wealth. If you think that is what America should be doing, that it is what will help keep America great, if you are think people should get a hand-out instead of a hand-up and that hand-out should come out of someone else's pocket, then vote for Obama.
- Obama Reaffirms Statement -
Obama: "Let the market work... and then just tax the heck out of people at the end and just redistribute it."
He will ...Tax the heck out of people. Then give it to others. Is redistribution of wealth really the job of government? This is the biggest threat to the American dream and threat of the beginnings of socialism this country has ever seen.
Obama: "America is, is no longer, uh, what it could be, what it, it once was, and I say to myself, I don't want that future for my children."
I guess he feels the same as wife Michelle when she says, "For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country", and that America is "just downright mean." And, if not now, just when was America great according you and your wife, Senator? I don't think the Obamas like our country. Have you ever heard Barack Obama defend America? No, but he is always ready to point out what is wrong with America and why the ills of the world are all America's fault.
Obama: "The first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing I'll do."
The Freedom of Choice Act will give every woman the fundamental right to a government subsidized abortion during the full nine months of pregnancy. Even a full term fetus can be aborted for unspecified health reasons making infanticide legal. This will go way beyond the "Roe vs. Wade" Supreme Court decision.
Obama: "Over the last 15 months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go."
Who in America doesn't know there are 50 states? Maybe he was thinking of the 57 Islamic states Muslims are familiar with from their Islamic studies.
- Obama On Constitution -
Obama: But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted it in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can't do to you. Says what the federal government can't do to you, but doesn't say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf, and that hasn't shifted. And one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court-focused, I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways, we still suffer from that.
Obama rails on the Constitution and our founding fathers about what he perceives as a flaw in the constitution. Is he going to try to try to repair what he believes is a Constitutional flaw from the Presidency or by his Supreme Court appointees? I think so. Basically, he wants the court to have redistribution of wealth powers. We cannot let him tamper with the constitution without the proper state radification. The Supreme Court cannot have carte blanc to tamper with the constitution. There is even talk of a horrific Obama Bill Of Rights to the constitution that would guarantee welfare rights.
Obama: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."
From an Obama speech on July 2nd in Colorado Springs. What? Are you creating a big civilian security force? Where is the money coming from? Why do we need it? Is this a continuation of his "truth police" that are stifling open debate or could this be all tied together with Obama's brain washing plan for America's youth?
Obama: “I will ask for your service and your active citizenship when I am president of the United States ... this will be a central cause of my presidency."
"People of all ages, stations, and skills will be asked to serve.... I will set a goal for all American middle and high school students to perform 50 hours of service a year, and for all college students to perform 100 hours of service a year...."
Obama has this crazy plan to eventually require ALL of America's youth to participate in the great Obama Government Service plan. Wasn't that what Hitler did?
The "Big Brother" state is at hand.
Obama: "We are our brothers keepers."
I guess he means everyone but himself. Millionaire Obama's half brother lives on $12 a year in a hut in Kenya. Obama's poor aunt living in a Boston slum gave money to his campaign but Barack hasn't lifted a finger to help her.
- Dems: Tax Tax Tax -
Obama: "I will cut taxes for 95% of working families."
This is perhaps Barack's biggest untruth to the American people. It's not real and it is just an election slogan to try to get votes. The American Enterprise Institute shows how the real tax numbers would stack up under Obama's proposals. Just plan on paying a lot more in taxes under an Obama Presidency and a Democrat Congress. Obama's website is already making changes showing he is going back on his tax break promises. Obama started out promising tax cuts (or welfare) for everyone earning less than $250,000, then he tweeked it to $200,000 and yesterday Joe Biden let slip the amount would be under $150,000. By the time he would get in office he will probably tax everyone and reneg on his tax cut promise just like Bill Clinton did in 1992.
Joe Biden: "...we're gonna have an international crisis."
Biden says he guarantees that our enemies are going to generate a crisis to test an inexperienced President Obama within 6 months if he is elected. Remember the Cuban Missile Crisis that almost caused a nuclear war? Same sort of thing.
Obama Ad: “You’ll pay more for your drugs; you’ll receive fewer (medical) services; you’ll get lower quality care… it ain’t right.”
A new Obama ad is trying to scare the elderly on Medicare and everyone on healthcare and Social Security as the Democrats are loath to do every election cycle. It's a complete fabrication! They misstate John McCains proposals and twist the Senator's plan completely into something it is not.
- Biden's Untruths -
Joe Biden also finally received some tough questions from an Orlando TV station about statements he and Obama have made. Joe didn't like answering tough questions and cried foul. Then a station in Ohio asked him about the $2 million in donations he channeled to family members and he denied it happened then had Obama ban the station. It seems Joe and Barack don't want to provide truthful answers to some of their plans for America.
Even Jesse Jackson has a few comments about what an Obama Presidency would mean. For example, Jackson says, "decades of putting Israel's interests first (in the Middle East) would end."
Then, there is the question of Obama's place of birth. As you know, the Constitution says the President must be a natural born U.S. citizen. Barack's grandmother says she was there when Obama was born in Kenya. Obama says he was born in Hawaii. A prominent Democrat, Philip Berg, has filed a lawsuit in Washington asking Obama to produce a valid birth certificate. Instead of simply providing a certified document to the court, Obama and the Democrat party have chosen instead to attack the lawsuit. A second similar lawsuit has recently been filed in the State of Washington and a third in Hawaii. They just want to see a certified copy of Obama's birth certificate!
Factcheck.org claims to have seen a valid Hawaii Obama birth certificate but they have ties to Obama and haven't shared the actual certificate with other fact checkers. So far nothing definative has been produced by Obama for independent examination and the claims of his Kenya birth will continue until he does. The Governor or Hawaii has sealed any records of Obama's birth.
Just like Bill Clinton, Barack Obama has no problem speaking untruthfully to the American people. He has not told the truth about his affiliations and his friends revising his story at every new revelation of another radical connection. He refuses to release his high school and college records as if there may be things in his past to hide. He misrepresents his liberal voting and narrative record including his fierce defense of live birth abortion in Chicago where a live infant is left alone to die after a botched abortion. And, after insisting he would aggressively pursue the use of public financing instead of partaking in the corrupt donations method to fund his campaign, he suddenly forgot that promise when it appeared to work to his advantage. Obama even stoops to sneaky credit card deception to fill his campaign coffers.
Can Obama be expected to keep his campaign promises to the voters? Or are we going to see a repeat of the 1976 Carter Presidency? Senator Biden, his running mate, seems to think there will be problems with Obama making very unpopular decisions early. Don't let Obama's fancy retoric pull the wool over your eyes.
OBAMA'S WRONG HEADED POLICY IDEOLOGY
- Bankrupts Coal Industry -
Energy - Obama prefers to move directly to alternative fuels even though they are not ready. His solution to this problem is to NOT drill but instead allow oil and gas prices to rise causing great pain and forcing change on the American people. Obama has stated his plans for the coal industry will cause "electricity prices to skyrocket". Prices are falling now but will reach new highs in the next economic recovery. This thinking will destroy our consumer economy for years as alternative energy is not ready for the masses. More development is needed and we need to drill, use clean coal, nuclear to enable us to affect the energy shift. Obama won't allow any meaningful drilling offshore or in ANWAR. We need that oil to bridge the gap to the next technology. Without much more drilling (and with his carbon credit tax) gas prices will go through the roof during the next economic expansion.
- More Redistribute Wealth -
Taxes - Obama's theory of trickle up economics does not work. It has been proven under Carter, Hoover and others. Like water, economic prosperity doesn't trickle up, it trickles down. The consumer cannot create jobs with cash infusions. Jobs only come from the business sector. And, the business sector only creates jobs when it sees growth and additional capital. Obama's trickle up tax plan of increasing taxes on business and higher income earners then giving that money to consumers does not work. It has been tried before and it has failed miserably. Obama's tax plan also includes increasing gasoline taxes, increasing other energy taxes, increasing FICA taxes, increasing capital gains taxes, increasing taxes on dividends, increasing the death tax, increasing corporate taxes (corporations just pass taxes on to their consumers and already pay the 2nd highest tax rate in the industrialized world which only makes them less competitve with foreign business unless they move factories and jobs to other countries), placing new taxes on retirement accounts and creating a "carbon tax" in his first 18 months that will decimate the economy. His plans combined will push the U.S. into slow growth at best and depression at worst.
The unbiased U.S. Chamber of Commerce is so concerned that a President Obama and a Democrat led Congress will be so anti-business that they have launched an unprecidented campaign against the Democrats.
For those who believe Obama saying the rich aren't paying their fair share, here are some facts from the IRS.
In 2006 the top 5% of wage earners paid
60% of all income taxes.
The bottom 50% (those earning approximately $32,000 or less) paid only
3% of all income taxes.
Under Obama the top 5% of wage earners will pay closer to 80% of all income taxes and the bottom 50% will receive government welfare checks. Including FICA the top tax rate will be around 50% of ones income, up from 35%. Even those of us in between those two income levels can see the blatent unfairness of Obama's income redistribution plan not to mention the lost jobs it is going to cost America.
Minimum Wage - Obama wants to increase the minimum wage by almost 50% in the next two years to $9.50. While this sounds like a great idea on the surface, it will wind up hurting many part-time and low wage worker. If businesses have to absorb such an increase their alternative is to cut jobs or raise prices or both. Since income and cost of living varies widely around the country the Federal minimum wage usually lags the minimum wage set by the States. This is logical because the states know the cost of living, the prices that industries hiring low wage workers can get for produce or goods and what manufacturing conditions exist locally. In the end, trying to lead with a high Federal minimum wage is not going to help anyone. Not business and not low wage workers.
Economy - Obama doesn't understand how the economy works. His tax, housing, spending and foreign commerce policies are naive and just the opposite of what works to allow the economy to grow itself. Look under "Taxes" above for more information on his economic effects.
Abortion - Obama has voted for and advocated legalizing abortion even to the point of killing infants born alive during attempted abortions. Although the subject of early term abortion may be debatable, Obama's stance of denying human rights to a living, breathing infant is unconscionable. While Obama is a man without a church since he canceled his membership with his racist church of 20 years last summer, Joe Biden is a Catholic and his Bishops keep beating him about the head every time he misstates the Church's position on abortion and he proceeds to blatantly ignore it.
Education - Obama is against vouchers that would allow parents to transfer children out of underperforming schools and place them in a school of their choosing. He also was the Chairman of the Annenberg Challenge Foundation chartered to improve education in Chicago. While there, Obama channeled about $150 million to radical educational outside groups. Many were to groups run by the foundation founder and director, Bill Ayers (yes, terrorist Bill Ayers). The Challenge’s final report indicated that the foundation had no effect on the quality of achievement of the students targeted. It is highly questionable that Obama has a valid educational plan in mind given his record.
National Defense - Obama has some frightening plans for our military. He wants to reduce funding for military research and development which could bring an end to our military advantage over our enemies. He wants to reduce or eliminate our defensive nuclear weapons while our enemies are increasing nuclear stockpiles. Already our nuclear weapons are in a state of decline. Obama wants to weaken our armed forces as Jimmy Carter did by an estimated 25% spending reduction. America is the only nation in the world that can prevent rogue countries from attacking weaker neighbors. Expect nuclear weapons to proliferate worldwide under Obama in spite of his efforts to do the opposite. Near the end of his term we can expect many wars to break out around the world and to see attacks on American world interests and possibly our homeland.
War Policy - We know Obama was against the surge in Iraq that has just about finished winning that war. Obama would still have us surrender in Iraq which Al-Qaeda wants and is very disturbing. Obama would also unilaterally attack the Taliban and Al Quada in Pakistan. Pakistan has indicated that such a broad policy would be considered an act of war. Pakistan also has a number of nuclear weapons it could use on Afghanistan if we blatantly ignore their warnings.
Foreign Policy - Obama wants to use direct dialog or appeasement to countries that threaten us or our allies such as North Korea, Iran, Russia and others. In Iran, for instance, we have been talking or using the Europeans to talk to them for over five years with NO PROGROGRESS. Even the French President Nicolas Sarkozy says Obama's policy on Iran is "utterly immature". We must be willing to talk but from a position of strength. Also, Obama wants to get the European countries involved with possible military actions and stationed forces. He doesn't seem to understand the Europeans have mostly disarmed and have small poorly equipped militaries. Their populations have turned once again to appeasement and are relying upon the U.S. to defend them. If we weaken our military, as Obama suggests, we will be opening the door for further aggression around the world and against U.S. interests and probably even at home.
Obama says he supports Israel but he has powerful connections in the PLO besides his friend Khalidi that may sway his loyalties. Obama has openly expressed his sympathies for the Palestinians but not for Israel. Some Palestinians are even making calls to the U.S. to try and convince people to vote for Obama. Reports have surfaced that Obama supports a Palestinian state and a Palestinian Jerusalem.
Trade - Obama suggests that the free trade agreements are harmful to the U.S. and should be abandoned or restructured. The truth is that these agreements have helped us to increase exports tremendously. Without the agreements we have now and initiating others, we are inviting an ever slower economy and possibly worse. Expanding world trade is the only answer to keep our economy growing.
Healthcare - It is no secret that healthcare costs have skyrocketed and the average family is having trouble paying for healthcare insurance. Costs have gotten so out of hand mostly for two reasons. First, technology has created many new expensive treatments and drugs with expensive testing procedures. Second, the costs for a doctor making a mistake have gone through the roof thanks to lawyers. We are all human beings and we make mistakes, especially in the complicated field of medicine. Multi-million dollar judgments for human error has substantially increased healthcare costs.
Solutions are not going to be easy to find. Obama wants us to adopt a system mandated by the government at great expense to small business and taxpayers. This is the route taken by socialist countries and their healthcare has declined while their taxes have skyrocketed. McCain, on the other hand, wants to provide more competition to the insurance industry giving families more choices. Also, he prefers to reduce the emphasis on business providing healthcare insurance and giving families tax benefits and payments to select from a broader, more competitive selection of providers. Obama's plan has been shown to be an expensive system that is heading to failure and collapse in many countries. McCain is offering a more realistically viable option that could make healthcare affordable for everyone while not making it a government boondoggle and a quality of care nightmare.
Gun Rights - As a constitutional attorney, Obama has been strongly opposed to individual gun rights even calling the Washington, D.C. gun ban legal. After the Supreme Court overturned the ban, Obama said he always supported gun rights. Me thinks the man is untruthful. The NRA says Obama would be the most anti-gun president in history. Don't trust Obama with your 2nd Amendment gun rights.
Same-Sex Marriage - Obama says he opposes gay marriage but sponsored a bill in Illinois protecting same-sex marriage and says he would support the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act. He also said he would oppose a federal ban on same sex marriage. The legalization of same-sex marriage in Massachusetts is creating problems for people never imagined.
In an open letter to Christians from the year 2012 the policies proposed by Obama are extrapolated. It describes a possible future United States after four years of an Obama Presidency and a Democratic Congress.
Hate Crimes - Co-sponsored bill expanding federal hate crimes legislation. It is sort of ironic that the left wants to to pass hate crimes laws yet they are the ones who seem to have a monopoly on hate!
Free Speech - Supports the "Fairness Doctrine", also known as "Hush Rush", will eliminate conservative radio talk shows under the guise of fairness. Democrats are already making moves to silence critics and have requested an FCC probe of retired military pundents. This is just the start of the assault on 1st Amendment rights to silence critics.
NASA - Obama supports just basic research and development at NASA.
Social Security - Obama supports adding the FICA tax to all income over $250,000 in addition to currently taxing all income under $102,000. Considering Obama's entire tax plan, it would seem he has formulated a complicated scheme to turn Social Security into a welfare plan.
401K Retirement Plans - Democrats are also talking about eliminating the tax deduction for 401k contributions. 401k retirement plans are the backbone of America's retirment safety net. Congress has ruined Social Security by spending all the money and now they want to ruin privately funded 401k's, too.
Supreme Court Justices - Obama wants to appoint more justices to the court that would re-write the Constitution to suit their opinions rather than base their opinions on the wording and intent of the Constitution and our Founding Fathers. Justices, and judges, who make law rather than interpret law are dangerous and go against everything our Founding Fathers intended with our three branch form of government. The Democrats have unjustly blocked appointments by President Bush for up to two years. The Democratic Congress is out of control.
Immigration - Obama supports some form of amnesty for the 12 million illegals already in the U.S. He also supports giving illegal aliens drivers licenses and Social Security>. This is crazy! Most American oppose such moves.
Experience - ZERO! Obama has no experience leading or managing anything. He claims he has been running his campaign for two years. In actuallity, David Axelrod has been running the campaign while obama is giving speeches.
- U.S. Financial Crisis -
There is ample evidence that the agenda Obama will pursue in office is supported by the communist party given his early mentoring by Frank Marshall Davis and ties to other communist thinkers. Even those who know Obama are concerned about his course of action as President.
Nancy Pelosi Controlling The Government?
If Obama is elected and the Democrats retain or strengthen their hold on Congress we are going to see a very scary Democratic agenda enacted on the American People. We'll see "card check", the non-secret voting by workers to unionize which will be fraught with coercion, expensive mediocre healthcare similar to that in Canada, tax increases for all (yes, I said all), cap and trade energy taxes, elimination of right to work laws, a liberal Supreme Court that will re-write the constitution, a weaker national defense and loss of our technological edge in defense, probably a nuclear Iran threat to the U.S. and Israel, and probably a U.S. recession followed by a possible depression. Obama could usher in the end of America as we know and love it. This belief about Obama's effect on America is becoming more and more wide spread as we learn more about him.
And, there are the hate speech laws creeping across the country that make Christianity's views on homosexuality a hate crime. Although Obama has not made comments about such views being a hate crime, it is being considered in Congress and a strongly liberal Congress along with a very liberal president could easily justify passing such legislation against Christian beliefs.
OBAMA'S FOREIGN ENDORSEMENTS
United Nations - Although the U.N. has not officially endorsed Obama, U.N. officials have made clear that they would like him to win the election. And, why wouldn't they? Obama has sponsored his world anti-poverty Senate bill (explained below) that would give $845 Billion to the U.N. for distribution. Imagine how many U.N. officials can line their pockets with our hundreds of billions of dollars just like they did with the "oil for food" program.
Hugo Chavez - The Venezuela President who has made so many outrageous statements about America and President Bush says he hopes Obama wins and that he lifts the trade embargo on his buddy's country, Cuba.
Al-Qaeda - Those in charge of Al-Qaeda would like to see Obama pull troops out of Iraq so they can claim victory. They would also prefer Obama's "more talk and less action" approach to the war on terror.
Ahmadinijad - Of course Iran would like to see a dove take over. Obama would talk and talk to Iran until AFTER they develop and deploy nuclear weapons. He would also block any help to Israel and try to thwart any military action they try to take against Iran to stop them from creating the bomb.
Hamas - The Palestinian terror group knows Obama has a good friend in former PLO spokesman Khalidi and has other Palestinian friends who advocate the destruction of Israel. Obama will not favor Israel nearly as much as the U.S. has for decades.
Syria - The Syrian government newspapers have endorsed Senator Obama. Of course, Syria has allowed foreign fighters to attack U.S. forces in Iraq from inside their boarders and has been an enemy of Israel, supporter of Hezbollah and aggressor in Lebanon.
European Public - The French, Germans and others in Europe's socialist countries see an ally in Obama. With an Obama Presidency, the U.S. will become more socialist, just like them, and maybe won't be as competitive with European business as we have been. Plus the U.S. may turn the other cheek when it is attacked, just like the Europeans do and we won't be asking for their pittance of troop suuport. It's a win for them - at least until military disaster strikes.
There are other foreign endorsements for Obama that you can find on the Internet. It just takes a little thought about what they would get out of an Obama Presidency to understand their enthusiasm.
I have provided truthful facts and statements about a man who would be President. Ask yourself if you believe Obama is really going to be good for America knowing what you know about him now.
I Say, NObama! Nobody in their right mind should want to vote for this guy.
Please vote for the decent candidate with the right vision for America's safety and growth, a war hero who looks out for YOUR interests - Vote for John McCain.
Remember, the very, very expensive programs that we can't afford that are being promised by Obama and Democrats in Congress. And, their plans for our national defense are downright frightening.
- Barrack's Deceit -
Obama has stated that he will halt research and development on our most advanced defense programs. In a speech to Caucus 4 Priorities, he called for suspension of future combat system development, for the abolition of space based defense systems, for major cuts in overall defense spending and for cutting spending in ballistic missile defenses. Obama just doesn't understand that with out our advantage in defense, America will be vulnerable to terrorists and rouge states throughout the world.
Obama says his healthcare plan will save $2500 per year per family over current costs. He bases much of his claim on a RAND study of using electronic health records for savings. However, the RAND study doesn't expect the savings to kick in until 2019. That's 11 years from now. Experts call his plan, "wishful thinking". When the government gets involved, it doesn't cost less -- it costs more.
"require the president to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the United States foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty, and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people worldwide, between 1990 and 2015, who live on less than $1 per day."
- Another Obama Friend -
We, the U.S taxpayers, would pay the United Nations for this boondoggle. That's $2600 for every man, woman and child in the U.S. I think we know where the money will end up and who is going to pay through the nose for this.
Obama needs to address these issues and level with the American people. Even more questions have recently been raised by the WSJ. There is, also, a comparison of experience and qualifications between Barrack Obama and Gov. Sarah Palin, the GOP Vice-Presidential pick here. And even the British understand Obama has a credibility problem with his words not matching his deeds.
Obama has said his campaign will bring a new level of honesty and transparency to the White House. Then why hasn't he been willing to release the following information voters have a right to know?

Where is this documentation? Why isn't the press screaming for access to these documents? Senator Obama is hiding something from the American people.
Even Hillary Clinton's camp has a problem with Obama's sexist ads against Sarah Palin. It is clear that Obama will do or say anything to get elected, just like he did in Chicago. Where is your moral compass Senator Obama?
We can't afford Barrack Obama, his policies and his lack of transparency. His background and ideology scare the heck out of me. Again, I say, NOBama!
UPDATE: 9/16/08 This has to be the OMG Update. It seems the Iraqi Foreign Minister is saying that Obama asked the Iraqi government to delay any agreement to withdraw U.S. troops until after the new U.S. Administration was in office. (Requesting this is a violation of U.S. law) At first the Obama camp denied this story but now they are confirming the basic premise of the initial story. Why would Obama try to negotiate a delay to the agreement? On the premise that he would win the election, he could then claim HE brought the war to an end. WE CAN'T LET THIS EGOMANIAC ANYWHERE NEAR THE WHITEHOUSE!
