You are going to decide this nation’s future. If you have already decided to vote for Barack or for McCain, don’t waste your time reading this. It is intense and thorough, purposefully full of facts and questions to explain my points. It is not for lightweights who want to vote on emotion, symbolism, party lines, or to “feel good”. I have tried hard to keep hypberbole and inflammatory language out of this.
No one reason would be enough for me to oppose him. Frankly, just a few of these reasons would just make him interesting and broad-minded. Before I knew anything about him, other than the fact that he was black and a Democrat, I figured he could be good for America, if nothing else BECAUSE he was black and it would finally put to rest this victim/racism mentality we indoctrinate our black population with. I was particularly impressed when he said that if he loses, it won’t be because of racism. Apparently that, along with many of his initial statements, has been thrown away by him, given how often he and his surrogates have now accused us who are against him of being racist.
But, the more I learned about him, the more the pattern emerged.., He as POTUS, combined with a Supermajority Congress run by Pelosi and Reid..well, my hair turns grayer thinking about the outcome of him as President. I remember Carter. This will be worse because at least you could criticize Carter and not be called a racist. Now we are muzzled by the fear of being labeled. Ok, on to the rest of the postings. I am going to put them in a series for easier chewing.
