Senator Government

I know that is not his real name, but, it was priceless when McCain called Obama that in the last debate. I think this is how I will refer to him from now on.

I know a lot of people are a little dissapointed at the announcement that Colin Powell endorses Obama. But, let us look at a couple of things.

First, let us look at what kind of company he is in. A man by the name of Ali Larijani, who happens to be the Iranian Parliament Speaker, says that Iran would prefer it if Obama was the President. Hugo Chavez, the dictator in Venenzuela, has stated that he would like to see Obama win the White House. Now, before someone brings it up, I know that there has been postings on al-Hesbah that AlQaeda supports McCain, but, reports also say that it is because they believe he will continue the failing policies of Bush. It also says that an attack on the United States would certainly guarantee a McCain win because we would want him to get revenge on AlQaeda. AlQaeda would then succeed in exhausting America. Iran wants Obama to win because they know that Obama will talk to them without any preconditions and they can continue to do what they want. They have, on many occasions, said that they want to wipe Israel off the face of the earth and continue on to take out America. So, Mr. Powell's endorsement of Senator Government, although slightly surprising (considering he owes his entire political career to Republicans), sure puts him into an interesting group of people. I forgot about Muammar Qaddafi (a blast from the past that is still alive and kicking), of Libya supports Obama as well as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran. If all of these people who, so obviously don't like America, want Obama to become President, why would we want him?

Second, they have totally stopped hiding their socialist agenda. Obama has actually said that he wants to spread the wealth around (see the video in the previous post). He isn't even trying to hide it anymore. He fully admits it. He wants to take money from people who have worked hard and make a right decent living and give it to people who don't. But, wait, there will be a work requirement for people to get the money, so it isn't welfare. Also, Joe Biden has said that they are going to go after the big C.E.O.'s retirement funds. Now, while I don't believe that a CEO whose actions have caused a company to go into the ground should be rewarded with a big payout at the end, and, that in a lot of cases, there probably even be some sort of fine, I feel that the retirement funds of individuals should be left alone.

The Democrats are the same as they always have been. They are the one's who wanted to keep slavery. Now, they have caused the dependence on the government to grow to the point that there are people out there who don't know how to survive on their own. They have succeeded in creating two new classes of people in this country. First, you have the people who have been getting the handouts from the government. They depend on this money for their very survival. They believe they are entitled to this. Second, you have the Political Elite. They are the one's who say they are campaigning for the very people whom their programs have caused to be right under their thumbs so that they will vote to keep them in power. Now, I know that there are bad apples on both sides of the "aisle". But, the majority of the people who think that they are better equipped to decide what is best for the people of this country than the people themselves, are Democrats.

Lastly, Biden has said two things that I have found to be very disturbing. First, he guaranteed that something would catostrophic would happen to test the mettle of Obama within the first six months of his presidency. Second, he told voters in the Northwest, that there would be a time when they would have to remember their support right now, and provide that support. Because, something would happen that would cause a decision to be made that would go against what everyone would think was right. Now, here we have a guarantee of something big happening, along with a promise that the American people are not going to like something that is being done by his administration, but, we are supposed to support it blindly. WHAT?! Now I know that they are crazy.

Do we want someone who every terrorist organization in the world supports? Do we want someone who fully admits to wanting to take more of our hard earned money and give it to people who don't have the gumption to go out and make something of themselves? Are we going to guarantee that something catostrophic is going to happen?

I KNOW that we can't afford any of this to happen.
