Story #281: My political view

I am not a fan of Obama. It's no secret. Gosh...his race has nothing to do with anything. So I don't dislike him because of his skin color or heredity. Maybe some people voted for him for the sole reason that he was black (wait, isn't he half-white?), but I think that more people voted for him because of his bogus promises. I was kinda for him when he was running against McCain even though I didn't share many of his democratic views (abortion and same-sex marriage). But since I wasn't and still am not an American, I don't have the right to vote (and I don't think I ever will because I don't plan on becoming a citizen). Anyways, I do still have an opinion or two about him and since I can express my opinion freely in this country, I want to take advantage of that right and say what I have to say about him.

The more I learn about Obama, the more I think that he's an evil man! Lies after lies after lies. All the promises that he made about "change" have not been fulfilled, except the health care bill, which contains terms that we are still pretty unsure of. Anyways, one thing that makes me sad is that I don't see how he is pushing America to prosperity. I fear that America will become a socialistic country in the future. Even though I didn't watch all of the speeches he made when he was running for the election, I know enough to say that he is not an honest man. When I was traveling in San Francisco, we met people at Union Square who wanted to impeach him. Perhaps that doesn't mean anything since people always would protest no matter who runs the office. But what I have observe is Obama's popularity has gone down the toilet compared to when he was first running. Most people who were hopeful with his so-called "change" promises have come to realize that he is nothing but a man who gives very good speeches. I don't blame them because about 2 years ago, I see an America that desperately needed some changes and Obama was the embodiment of change. His appearance, his race, political view, his promises were all screaming "CHANGES FOR AMERICA." Or so we thought. He's in the office for almost half his term now and what has he done that is a good change for America? Jack. It is so sad that when politicians go back on their words, the people have to suffer for their dishonesty. It is no wonder that people have so much doubt about their government and politicians. And oh...why does he want kindergartners to learn about sex education??? If you ever listened to Obama's preacher's sermon, you'd think that he's not preaching about Jesus at all as Obama has so often claimed. He preached A LOT about anti-white! Does being African-American give him the right to be racist? Ok, sidetrack a little, I was watching this video of Obama's preacher talking about Pearl Harbor. He said, "The government lied about Pearl Harbor! They knew the Japanese were going to attack. The government lied!" Now, that is hilarious! He obviously DIDN'T know what he was shmoking! As if the U.S would let the Japanese attack Hawaii on purpose!

One more thing, it is sad that many Americans was indifferent and chose not to vote during the election. It didn't matter who they vote, their votes count. Unfortunately, some people just don't care enough about their country to find out what is going on in their government and who is going to lead their country and in what direction. I don't understand these people. They have the right to vote but instead of putting their right to purpose and good use, they wasted it for the lack of interest in what's going on outside of their little bubble. Anyways, I know that I am going to lose friends or make enemies when I write this post. But I have been wanting to express my opinion on this matter for months and suppressing that opinion isn't going to happen anymore. I am in a weird position. I am not an American and I can't vote even though I really want to. I like America and my friends and family here and I really want us to have a good government and good politicians that help us prosper.

**The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.**

Here's a chain mail forwarded to me that I think is worth reading. There's also some videos at the bottom about the lies Obama made. In fact, there are a whole bunch of videos on youtube about that you might want to see.

I hope you find the time to read this with an open mind. It's
interesting. Please read it with the open mind rather than immediately
breaking it down into left or right, but rather look at it from the
neutral viewpoint of right or wrong. It's like the line below says, "what
if he is right?"

Take the three minutes to read this.

Maybe he is wrong, but what if he's right?

History Unfolding

I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books on
history that have been published in six languages, and I have studied
history all my life. I have come to think there is something monumentally
large afoot, and I do not believe it is simply a banking crisis, or a
mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely
single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a
sharper focus..

Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I
know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it.
Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening
within our country that has been evolving for about ten to fifteen years.
The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make
massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?

We learned just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no
real oversight by anyone, has "loaned" two trillion dollars (that is
$2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom
or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that
is three times the $700 billion we all argued about so strenuously just
this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the
terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought
this was a government of "we the people," who loaned our powers to our
elected leaders. Apparently not.

We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our
economy... Why?

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no
longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we
are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think
critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are
not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?

We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election
(violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that
it simply wants marriage to remain defined as between one man and one
woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?) We
have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges
to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream
Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a
banana republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall,
major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of
collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our
entire government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach
college and I know precisely what I am talking about) - the list is
staggering in its length, breadth, and depth.. It is potentially 1929 x
ten...And we are at war with an enemy we cannot even name for fear of
offending people of the same religion, who, in turn, cannot wait to slit
the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so.

And finally, we have elected a man that no one really knows anything
about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big
as Wasilla , Alaska .. All of his associations and alliances are with real
radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn
about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you
have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory
civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our
borders? No? Oh, of course. The media would never play that for you over
and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter and
$150,000 wardrobe are more important.)

Mr. Obama's winning platform can be boiled down to one word: Change. Why?

I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.

This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never,
ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us
along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the
pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed coming.
And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.

And that is only the beginning..

As a serious student of history, I thought I would never come to
experience what the ordinary, moral German must have felt in the mid-1930s
In those times, the "savior" was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser
from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What
they should have known was that he was associated with groups that
shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he
edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory. Conservative
"losers" read it right now.

And there were the promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing
jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and frowned and waved a
lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that
his "brown shirts" would bully and beat them into submission. Which they
did - regularly. And then, he was duly elected to office, while a
full-throttled economic crisis bloomed at hand - the Great Depression.
Slowly, but surely he seized the controls of government power, person by
person, department by department, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The children
of German citizens were at first, encouraged to join a Youth Movement in
his name where they were taught exactly what to think. Later, they were
required to do so. No Jews of course,

How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to the
jobless, money to the money-less, and rewards for the military-industrial
complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control,
health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to
re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe , and across the
world. He did it with a compliant media - did you know that? And he did
this all in the name of justice and .... . ... change. And the people
surely got what they voted for.

If you think I am exaggerating, look it up. It's all there in the history

So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in 1933 and
were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed. When Winston
Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the
House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed
into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though. And
the world came to regret that he was not listened to.

Do not forget that Germany was the most educated, the most cultured
country in Europe . It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals,
laboratories, and universities. And yet, in less than six years (a shorter
time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency) it was rounding up
its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children
against parents, and neighbors against neighbors.. All with the best of
intentions, of course.. The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I
have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence
tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what
history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can
hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring
what is transpiring around me..

I choose to believe the evidence. No doubt some people will scoff at me,
others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. To some degree,
perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and
tell them exactly what I believe-and why I believe it.

I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am. Perhaps the only hope is our vote
in the next elections.

Pass this along. Perhaps it will help to begin the awakening of America as
to where we are headed...
