From a good friend of mine from the States…..
Exactly seven years and two months ago, the United States was attacked on its native soil by the forces of re-emerging Islamic orthodoxy, which seek to undermine and destroy our influence in the world. Yet, who would believe that only seven years and two months later, the American people seem uncharacteristically and imprudently poised to elect a person with the overt Islamic name of Barak Hussein Obama –a person who is not only lacking in any substantial executive experience whatsoever (indeed, who is probably the least qualify person to ever come within reach of the US Presidency), but who is largely a total mystery to the American electorate, aside from the glowing “dramatic performances” that he has given throughout this year’s presidential election –performances that were of course greatly assisted by the behind-the-scenes efforts and unwavering support of the liberal news and entertainment media: the chief architects and facilitators of the Obama mythos and “brand.”
But, what do we really know about this man who would be our President? We know that he has never run a city or state; that he has never run a business, been responsible for a payroll, or produced a good or service. Rather, he is a life-long academic, if that. We also know that all of his key associates are extremely radical Left-Wingers, one of which is a self-professed unrepentant terrorist; and another (who Obama himself called his mentor) is a zealous proponent of Black liberation theology and anti-American philosophy. It was this later individual, we are told, who ‘brought Obama to Christ’ and who ‘baptized’ him and his children into their supposed Christian faith. However, according to school records from Obama’s very murky childhood history in Indonesia, Obama’s religion is listed as “Islam.” And even if we admit that this was probably a convenient designation based on the fact that his Kenyan father was a Muslim, there still remains the even more disturbing secular (or supposedly secular) heritage which Obama received from his Left-Wing hippie mother and her apparently permissive parents (Obama’s American grandparents) who, unable to properly cope with the cultural needs of a Black grandchild in Hawaii, supposedly introduced the young Obama to a certain Black poet who was an avowed and leading member of the Communist party with strong ties to Moscow, and who (as Obama explains in his book) became something of a Black father-figure to him. If we add to this the very disturbing behavior exhibited by Obama, not only via his consistent associations with Communist and pseudo-Communist fringe elements (e.g. Ayers, etc.), but also his initial refusal to wear an American flag pin or to place his hand over his heart during the playing of the National Anthem, etc., a picture of who and what Obama really is begins to come into focus. On top of this, there is the very disturbing treatment which Obama receives from the socialist elite of Europe. Of special note are the Stalinist-like (if not Fascist-like) chants of “Obama! Obama! Obama!” that greeted him when he made the unprecedented choice to speak in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin –the former site of the Berlin Wall. What American candidate is treated like this??? And why?? Why do the people of Europe (A.K.A the socialists) love and adore him so? What has he ever done? What has he ever achieved that should merit such praise and adoration? Is it simply that he’s Black? Is it simply that he speaks well? Is it merely that he’s a socialist like them, and they know this? Well, surely, there are and have been other American socialists and Left-Wingers. But Speaker Pelosi is not treated this way. Nor is John Kerry or Al Gore. Nor even Hilary Clinton. So why is Obama lionized and elevated to such heights? Who is he???
In the past few weeks, the general American skepticism against Obama seems to have been shattered by the more pressing panic due to the banking collapse and the economic anxieties that go with it. As is so typical of the irrational American electorate, the vast majority of Americans are foolishly blaming George Bush and the Republicans for the problem; when the reality, of course, is that the problem was created by Democratic mis-regulation of the mortgage and housing industries (i.e., Democrats like Barney Frank pressuring banks, under threat of racism, to grant unsound mortgage loans to low income persons who were likely to default on them). In response to this crisis, President Bush foolishly listened to the advice of his Democratic Treasury Secretary Paulson (yet another reason why bi-partisanship doesn’t work –Bush should not have a Democrat serving in his Republican cabinet), who of course insisted that we needed an immediate $700 billion bailout to “save the economy.” In my personal opinion, Paulson urged this to help drive the last nail into the Bush legacy and to help Obama’s election. Of course, McCain’s response to the bailout didn’t help him. He too was crucified on the cross of bi-partisanship, which has always been McCain’s imprudent weakness; and Obama (who just sat back and did nothing) amazingly emerged as the hero of this fiasco in the court of public opinion. A religious person like myself cannot help but suspect something demonic at work here. And this is especially true because Obama himself, as a lawyer for Acorn and the recipient of the most political donations from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, was a key player in the mortgage and housing collapse. But, no one in America seems to see this. No one connects it to Obama. There is no blood on his hands. He is immaculate and pure. He can do no wrong. Again, who is this man?? Why is he regarded this way?
But, the reality is clear: Our economy is in crisis and the black-and-white mentality of most Americans is going to blame the executive in power –that is, George Bush’s Republican administration. Thus, the American people in their sublime wisdom (yes, I am being sarcastic) are going to elect a tax-and-spend liberal Democrat to “fix” our problems and save us from economic collapse. To this, I can only say: DEAR GOD! How stupid are we??? As McCain economic advisor Carly Fiorina has pointed out, ‘If Obama does what he says he is going to do, he will plunge us into another Great Depression.’ Yet, apparently, Americans cannot see this or do not care to see this. For what Obama proposes is trillions of dollars in new spending (this when the federal government is on the verge of bankruptcy) and raising the taxes on corporations and any individual who makes over $250,000 a year –a demographic which includes most of America’s small businesses. As Obama puts it, he plans to fix our economy from “the bottom up” …which, in reality, means creating a welfare state. His plan is to tax the achievers in America and to give their money to the 40% of Americans who do not even pay any tax …well, aside from social security tax, which he will still take from this 40%. And Obama intends to do this at a time when he will have full control over both houses of Congress –that is, when there will not even be enough Republicans to filibuster and frustrate his plans. And this of course means that he is guaranteed to get everything he wants. Indeed, he will almost certainly go even further to the Left than he proposes, since he will have to give way to his Left-wing allies in Congress as well. In short, we are in for a horrible period in our nation’s history if Obama is elected.
So, for anyone out there who is stupid enough to cast their vote for this bozo, here is what we can expect with utmost certainty for the Age of Obama:
1) He will tax just under 50% of the income of anyone making more that $250K per year, which means most small businesses in America. If a business makes $250K, then Obama will take about $110K of this $250K in federal taxes (not to mention the state and city and social security and sales taxes which must be paid along with this). The only possible result of this action will be that small businesses all across America will have to fire one or more of their employees, increasing unemployment astronomically (i.e., small businesses account for the vast majority of jobs in America). And the same effect will be seen with big corporations, who will continue to move their operations overseas.
2) While Obama says that 95% of Americans will not pay taxes at all under his plan, he cannot possibly pay for all the government programs that he proposes without taxing the middle class as well. So, like those making over $250K, the middle class will also be taxed. While in Congress, Obama voted to raise taxes on anyone making over $40K per year. He will almost certainly return to this position once elected. But, even now, he admits that, while 95% of Americans will supposedly not be taxed, he WILL raise takes on social security, which means that all working Americans will loose money from their pay checks. This will also serve as an incentive for small business owners to reduce their number of employees. In short, Obama will be a job killer.
3) Obama also plans to increase taxes on capital gains, which is the tax that stock owners pay whenever they sell a publicly traded stock. This is why our present Stock Market is in the toilet. People are selling their stock now so that they will not have to pay higher taxes under Obama.
4) In terms of foreign policy, Obama’s sophomoric mentality is sure to get us into trouble. He is under the impression that all he needs to do is meet personally with our enemies and he will be able to “charm” them into submission, just like he does everyone else. In regard to Iraq especially, my prediction is that, immediately after his election, the terrorists will launch a full-scale revolt there; many Americans will be killed, and Obama will have no other choice but to pull our forces out of Iraq, leaving that part of the world to the terrorists. In other words, all the lives sacrificed by our servicemen will have been in vain. In addition to this, we will see the growing influence of Iran, which will indeed have a nuclear bomb by the end of Obama’s 4 years. We may even have a situation in which a nuclear bomb is detonated on American soil because of Obama. Any way you cut it, his election will lead to the deaths of thousands, if not millions. Mark my words.
5) In regard to abortion, the election of Obama will spell the end of the Pro-Life movement. I am dead serious about this. Not only will he be sure to replace Supreme Court justices with liberals, thus canceling out the nominations of Roberts and Alito, Obama and his Democratic Congress will pass the so-called “Freedom of Choice Act,” which will make it impossible to overturn Roe vs. Wade. Abortion will be the law of the land for at least the next century because of this. It will also be expanded to include partial birth abortion and other evils. We will not be able to stop it.
6) Obama and his Democratic Congress will also pass the so-called “Fairness Doctrine,” which will essentially hamper Conservative freedom of speech by taking Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and other Conservative talk shows off the air. Keep in mind that the age of Obama corresponds to the FCCs transition to digital broadcasting, which will make non-cable / non-satellite TV inoperable in the United States. What this means is that if liberals were to take control of a major cable or satellite company, such as Comcast, they could take Fox News or other conservative content off the air and silence the conservative alternate media forever. This is the stated goal of the liberals who currently control most of the new media. When it comes to Conservative radio, the Fairness Doctrine will require that someone like Rush Limbaugh (who brings in millions of dollars in advertising) share his three daily hours of air time with a liberal commentator, who will be able to give the “liberal side” of things. The result of this will be a reduction in advertising dollars (because no one listens to liberal radio in America –the failed “Air America” experiment proved that); and so radio stations will choose to play music rather than talk radio, since it will not be economically rewarding to have a talk radio station. And this means that both Limbaugh and his liberal competitor will be out of a job –something that will be fine with the liberals, since they will have succeeded in silencing Limbaugh and other conservatives.
In addition to these goodies, we can expect an increase a ridiculous growth in government and an even more radical liberal influence in our kids’ education and American society as a whole. Health care will almost certainly be socialized, and, unlike Clinton’s attempt to do it, Obama’s all-Democrat Congress will be able to pass his health care program in the first two years of his administration. So, we lost that one too. American medicine WILL be socialized now. Welcome to Canada and the UK, and good luck getting that liver transplant.
The election of Obama represents the ultimate victory of 1960’s liberalism over traditional American values, now packaged with personal charisma and protected by the shield of anti-racism (i.e., You can’t criticize him because he’s Black). What we are about to see happen in this country (unless we are spared from it on November 4th by Divine providence and an unprecedented showing of common sense among the voters) will be the equal to the implosion of the Soviet Union in the early 1990’s. America as we have known it is about to cease to exist. The Reagan revolution is about to be destroyed once and for all. And my sneaky suspicion is that there are much bigger elements at play here than just a smooth talking Negro. I cannot help but suspect that this is all the work of the enemies of Reagan (including Putin and the KGB) who are now conspiring, perhaps along with certain Islamic elements, to “pay us back” for the defeat of the Soviet Union 20 years ago and the present “War on Terror” (read: “War on Islam” and Islam’s “manifest destiny”). We are now about to become a socialist nation and the equal, if not the inferior, of Europe. At the bare minimum, it is going to take us at least 25 years to recover from the tragic decision that it looks like we are about to make on November 4th. May God spare, us if at all possible.
