These are my opinions and I ask you to "hear me out" even if you are not in agreement with my views. The ability to have open discourse in this country is part of what makes a democratic republic work and, ironically, will probably be the first thing to fall in the near future.
In my opinion, Barack Obama will win the election as President of the United States and this will open the door to the end of our national culture as it was designed by our forefathers.
A one party government, which is what we will have when Obama wins, will no longer listen to the people. They barely listen now, but with the restraints of a multi-party system removed, they will run rampant over the Constitution with no checks or balances for a minimum of 8-20 years.
The Democratic party, with the office of President and control of both Houses of Congress will:
Appoint only liberal judges to the Supreme Court and federal District Courts
Adopt the laws of foreign nations (by treaty and U.N. agreement)
Cripple the Bill of Rights, specifically the 1st and 2nd Amendments
Raise taxes to pay for a cascading of pork barrel spending
Destroy the Medical Care system in place
Destroy the effectiveness of the U.S. military
Remove freedom of choice in a variety of arenas
Persecute and prosecute Christians in the name of "tolerance" and "hate speech"
Effect unlimited abortion
Effect Euthanasia of the elderly, then the mentally imperfect, then ... ?
In short, all the far left liberal agenda will be enacted by an unchecked Democratic party government (NOT democratic government, Democratic PARTY government)
Where will we feel it first?
The economy - The Democratic Party is historically pro-tax raising and this unchecked Congress will put most of the middle class in the tank.
Religious expression - The right to free speech, already under assault in most of our society, will end for Christians specifically and other religious groups by association.
The Right to Keep and Bear Arms - handguns will disappear; crime will not. The cost of ammunition will escalate on a level making it almost out of reach for most law abiding Americans.
The rights of parents to make decisions for their children. The United States is one of two countries that have not signed the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. Under Obama it will be signed and American parents will lose parental rights on a horrific scale (look it up).
Education - The National Teachers Association, one of the most liberal, socialist, organizations in the world, will throw off all guise of responsible education and will ramp up an already systematic method of forced social indoctrination, such as we have never seen. Have you talked to your public school educated children lately? Do you wonder where they get their distorted, revisionist views of the worlds and America (are you a product of that environment yourself)? Look in their text books. Go to a "friends of the library" book sale and pick up a history book written before 1970. Compare it to what is being taught in our schools today; do the same for math, science, etc..
The list is withering .....
Many people will vote "Anti-Bush" on Nov. 4, seeing Senator Obama as the only choice. They will vote without giving any of these issues a thought and with no consideration of Senator McCain. While I am not a fan of either candidate, I will vote "anti-totalitarianism" and cast my vote for Senator McCain.
At the same time, we must consider that 100% of the House of Representatives is up for re-election. I am encouraging an "anti-incumbent" vote for the Senate and the House. I ask you to vote against anyone who is currently in office. It is time for a voters revolution.
Your vote on Nov. 4 will change the face of this nation either way. Take a hard look before you vote.
George Bush is not the enemy, it is our ignorance.
