Barrack Obama’s campaign is all about “Change.” First of all, I’d love for someone who lives in Illinois to name something Obama has changed in Illinois for the better. Hmmm … Anyone? Anyone? There was no proposal to lower taxes, which he promised. And education is a MESS. He squandered the $110,000,000 million on who knows what for education via the Annenberg Challenge and has zero to show for it.
My mom reminds me that no one person can screw America up that bad (we are stronger than that). But then I think, this time, this guy is just radical enough that he just might unravel the little moral fabric that is left of our country. Change that he’s capable of (think Jeremiah White, William Ayers, ACORN, born-alive infants, not pledging the flag, education in Illinois) is exactly what scares me. Obama aside, I think we’ve had quite enough change over the years as it is, thankyouverymuch. From Roe v Wade and taking prayer out of schools to “equal” rights and “tolerance” … if anything, we need to go backwards. “Progress” seems to be what’s gotten us where we are today–no thanks.
Don’t get me wrong, I am proud to be American. And I am not going to apologize for being part of the most powerful nation on earth. I am thankful to live here and have the freedoms and opportunities that we have here in America. That’s what it’s about, not money. We don’t need handouts or mandates that allows the government to decide what’s best for us. If we do, it’s because we’ve been relying on them too long already and have been conditioned that way. We’re not stupid, we know what’s best for ourselves and our families.
But what can you do? I guess vote for John McCain, put America first, and pray for the best!
