If Obama should win the coming Presidential Election I really don't believe that the country will go to hell in a hand basket. He is an intelligent decent man as John McCain recently stated. And let's face it. I we survived Jimmy Carter we can survive just about anything.
There are several deal breakers that no matter how much you like the guy, these issues will keep you for voting for him.
The Born Alive Bill: Twice Obama voted against protecting a baby who had survived a botched abortion. This has nothing to do with Wade vs. Roe. This is infanticide, pure and simple. A law has been passed on the Federal level that protects the life of a child if that child is born alive.
Obama led the charge against the same law while he was a member of the Illinois legislature. Obama articulately worried that legislation protecting live aborted babies might infringe on women's rights or abortionists' rights.
So according to Obama, the possible infringement on a woman's right to abort trumps the life of a child.
In February 2004, Michelle Obama wrote a fundraising letter during her husband's 2004 US Senate campaign claiming the partial birth abortion ban "is clearly unconstitutional" and "a flawed law."
So Michelle and Barack both support partial birth abortion. This is a ghoulish barbaric practice that allows abortions in the third trimester when a child would be viable outside of the womb. Michelle stated that Obama believes that partial birth abortions are a "legitimate medical procedure".
Millions of us believe that killing baby harp seals is a crime. But Michelle and Barack think that forcing a breech birth and keeping the head of a live baby inside the mother so he can pierce his brain with a surgical instrument and then sucking out the brain is a "legitimate medical procedure" .
How does one develop that kind of morality?
Michelle was wrong and the Supreme Court upheld the ban on partial birth abortions in the Gonzalez v. Carhart case.
Employee Freedom Act: George Orwell wrote in 1984 about the ultimate in state control in 1984. The government taught that War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
Orwell would have been proud of the name of this bill: the Employee Freedom Act.
The Employee Freedom Act will eliminate the secret ballot in elections where workers are deciding to vote for a union or not. And what is this new Freedom that the Act brings to employees?
As Kinky the Clown wrote a few weeks ago, the Freedom to get beat up by union thugs should you dare to vote against the union.
Why do the unions fear the secret ballot? You have right to choose without threats from union organizers. If a union is a good thing, a benefit to the workers why do the unions fear the secret vote?
War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. Employee freedom no secret ballot.
Amnesty: John McCain not only voted for amnesty, he wrote the law along with Senator Kennedy. McCain paid a high price for his support of immigration reform. He was ostracized by the right wing of his own party.
His approval rating during the early Republican primaries was a whooping 7%. He truly is a Lazarus candidate who was raised from the dead.
Obama voted against McCain-Kennedy due to his ties with the unions who opposed the bill. In Mississippi the ICE raid netted 600 undocumented workers. Who tipped off ICE? The local union.
The record is there for everyone to see. McCain not only supported the amnesty bill he wrote it with Senator Kennedy. Obama voted against it. As they use to say that's a fact Jack.
ACORN: The Obama campaign has paid over $800,000 to ACORN to register voters. The FBI has raided their office in Las Vegas. They are under investigation in a dozen states.
They have registered Mickey Mouse, Kang and Kodos, Jive Turkey. One voter admitted to having been registered 73 times. The Dallas Cowboys football team was also registered by ACORN in Nevada.
In Ohio alone there are 200,000 suspect ballots. ACORN has registered derelicts, homeless and felons. As a matter of fact they had ex-felons working for them in Las Vegas.
ACORN an organization directly tied to Senator Obama is leading and encouraging the biggest voter fraud in the history of this country.
So there you have it. Obama deal breakers. In any cas,e should he win in November I wish him well. I will support him as I did Bill Clinton. I hope that he has the wisdom, the vision to lead America as America is the world's hope, the world's light and as Ronald Reagan said "a shining city upon a hill" .
