Sadly, nowhere is the utter lack of concern for the people more evident than in Obama- the supposed representaive who has been running for president longer than he's been in Congress- the person who never voted anything other than "present" on any issue. Yet somehow (because of our fine education system and the media who don't let people think long-term or critically), people are duped into following him- just as I predicted they would be (before Obama ever stepped into the limelight)- as sheep before the slaughter. I knew it could have been and would be anybody mouthing the same empty words of "hope" and "change" in a rock-star-like distracting manner. It was just a matter of time before someone like him came along to fill the void, captured people's attentions, and had them thinking that more government control over every aspect of their lives was a good thing.
He's managed to put a positive spin on raising taxes to support the rest of the world, to engender a feeling of sympathy (among the far left) towards terrorists, putting restrictions on speech, stating that a national police force whose ranks would be filled from his PC activist programs and funded and equipped as good as the military would be a good thing, and he's convinced people that he is worthy to lead them despite being either an idiot or a liar (in regards to his supposed ignorance about the blatant racism of his close friend and mentor of 20 years- I'm still betting on liar).
It's sad to see that my analysis was correct, and that such a person came along sooner than I had imagined... but I also figured out approximately 6 months ago that McCain HAD to pick Palin if there was to be any true hope of fighting corruption and preserving freedom- so there is still some hope of getting off the slippery slope we are on. It's going to take a concerted effort on the part of believers AND/OR conservatives to push back the assault on our way of life. McCain himself wasn't always a very good conservative voice in Congress, but with Palin behind him, we'll be in better shape.
Well that's enough of my ranting, I had to walk a mile through a dust storm yesterday and it got me sick, so I took a nyquil which is now kicking in... time to zonk out till tomorrow morning. blah.
