Here is my big post on Barack Obama.
IF OBAMA WINS HE WILL BE PRESIDENT FOR EIGHT YEARS
There’s a disturbing trend of thought among some blog commenters who should be opposed to Obama. It goes like this: “Four years of Obama will be a disaster, and then the American people will see the light and elect a real conservative, in the image of Ronald Reagan, to the presidency.”
I have really bad news for everybody. The fantasy scenario above is not going to happen. If Obama wins the election, we are nearly guaranteed to see him in the White House for eight years, during which time he will lead the nation towards left wing ruin from which we will never recover.
First of all, let me explain why Obama is nearly guaranteed to win his re-election. If McCain manages to win, it will be because of votes from people who fear the unfamiliar—the unfamiliar being a black guy as president. With four years in office, it will no longer be so unfamiliar and scary. And there will be four years of the media telling us what a wonderful job that Obama is doing. The nation will be brainwashed into believing that he’s the greatest President since George Washington.
At its simplest, as long as there is no national emergency, all a president has to do is sign bills presented by Congress and give speeches. Obama is really good at giving speeches, and I’m sure he knows how to use a pen, so it’s hard to understand why some people are so certain of the “disaster” perception. What we know about Obama is that the news media loves him, and the news media controls people’s perceptions.
Furthermore, it’s foolish to hope that the next Ronald Reagan will magically appear to save us from Obama. Of course, one can always hope, but you should never count on a hope. Murphy’s Law is what you should count on: if something can go wrong it will. The history of presidential elections during the last few decades shows that Republican candidates don’t appear out of thin air. Reagan didn’t appear out of thin air in 1980, he came in second place in the Republican primaries in 1976. Only politicians who have already been around the block a few times ever win the Republican presidential primaries. The most likely newcomer next time around is Mike Huckabee, and he’s not the kind of conservative who will save the country. He’s only conservative when it comes to Christian hot-button issues like abortion and teaching evolution in the schools. On most other issues, he’s more liberal than McCain.
OBAMA IS NOT STUPID
Here’s an excerpt from a comment:
2. AA Harvard/law review. check. the issue he edited, and for which he contributed no writing, is considered 1 of the worst issues of reiew in H's history. Check
3. AA U Chicago law school (teaches constitutional law). No published law articles. Check
This is the wrong way to attack Obama. I’m quite impressed that Obama was editor of the Harvard Law review. Maybe he wasn’t the smartest student at his class at Harvard Law School, but he was most likely the smartest black student in his class. Obama is probably way smarter than McCain who graduated at the bottom of his class at the Naval Academy. Regarding the absence of law review articles, as an adjunct professor he was not expected to publish any articles. And why the hell would he want to waste his time writing law review articles for free when he could make millions of dollars writing books like Dreams of My Father and The Audacity of Hope?
Michelle Obama, who failed the bar exam, is probably more like the typical underqualified beneficiary of affirmative action, but Barack Obama may be the real deal, the rare super-smart black person. On the other hand, Barack Obama is half white, so he’s also a super-smart white person.
Obama’s intelligence is not a reason not a reason to vote for him. It’s a reason to be afraid of him. Adolf Hitler was also said to be very intelligent, as well a somewhat talented watercolor painter. Hitler was also very good at giving speeches. The look of religious adoration I see in the faces of people watching Obama speeches should remind you of the same look in the faces of Germans watching Hitler. Smart and charismatic people can use their talents for evil. Hitler led Germany down a destructive right-wing path. How do we know that Obama won’t lead the United States down a destructive left-wing path?
(Is it fair to compare Obama to Hitler? Liberals don’t complain when George W Bush is compared to Hitler. You don’t have to talk to a liberal very long before he calls some Republican a “fascist.”)
THE NEWS MEDIA LOVES OBAMA. YOU SHOULD BE AFRAID
The news media effectively operates as a fourth branch of government, acting as a check and balance on the other three branches. The news media will not fulfill this role if Obama becomes president, because the liberal news media is in love with him. Everything he says and does will be praised as coming from the great Lightworker.
Anyone who says anything bad about Obama’s policies will be cast down as being racist. Joe Biden was castigated as a racist because he said that Obama was “articulate.” When someone from Obama’s own party says something nice about him and gets labeled a racist, what chance does the opposition have?
IS OBAMA AN EXTREME LEFT-WING LIBERAL?
Obama spent twenty years attending the church of Reverend Wright who preaches extreme left-wing anti-Americanism. And Obama has an extreme liberal voting record in the U.S. Senate. He has proposed a massive $100 billion per year tax hike.
If anyone has any evidence that Obama will not be the most liberal president since Lyndon B. Johnson, I’m waiting to hear it.
HOW EXTREME LEFT-WING LIBERALS PERMANENTLY DAMAGE THE NATION
When an extreme left-wing liberal occupies the Oval Office, the nation does not recover from it when the next President takes over. Liberal policies tend to stick around forever. The public housing problem we have today dates back to Lyndon B. Johnson who created the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Once a liberal president creates a new federal department, it usually stays around forever.
Medicare was created when Lyndon B. Johnson was president; it’s still around. Not only is Medicare still around, the very nature of people’s views of the role of government has changed as a result. Before the 1960s, healthcare was seen as something you had to pay for, and if you didn’t have any money you were out of luck. Today, healthcare is seen as a basic right, and the current mode of thinking is only questioned by the most hardcore libertarians.
Every liberal Supreme Court Justice who Obama appoints will remain on the court for many years after Obama leaves office.
The big immigration mess we have today can be traced back to the Immigration Act of 1965 passed when Lyndon B. Johnson was president. The New York Times editorial board believes that if Obama is elected, restrictions on immigration will be lifted. The result will be millions of new citizens who will vote for Democrats in the future, making it even less likely that there will ever be a successor to Ronald Reagan.
I believe that Obama, if elected, will be the next Lyndon B. Johnson, and he will usher in a permanent leftward shift in our nation’s policies
OBAMA MUST BE STOPPED
I hope the post above demonstrates why Obama must be stopped. McCain may not be the next Ronald Reagan, but he’s a far better alternative than eight years of Obama. Even if McCain wins, there’s a good chance that Obama will be back in 2012.
People who care about preventing our country from taking an extreme shift left must do whatever it takes to make sure that Obama doesn’t win the election. Liberals will do whatever it takes to get Obama elected because they know the stakes. The New York Times will do whatever it takes because the editorial board understands that Obama as president means the realization of their dreams of the most left-wing immigration policy imaginable. If those who are opposed to the liberal takeover of America don’t fight back, then the battle is already lost.
