This is also a man whose voting record (meager as it is) puts him in the "far left" category. He brazenly proposes heavy taxation in the face of a tax-hating citizenry. He is unapologetic about his support of entitlements and has consistently voted for bills laden with pork and earmarks. He believes redistribution of wealth is moral, not immoral, despite his supposed biblical roots. He supports every form of abortion, including infanticide. He has alarming ties to extremists, criminals, radicals, and foreign thugs. He started out as a lawyer who learned, and eventually taught, shakedown tactics. He is not afraid to use the race card even as he touts his biracialism as proof that he is "beyond" race. And his idea of defending our country from enemies is to first understand them.
A very thought provoking article. You can read the rest of it here: What If Obama Doesn’t Have America’s Best Interests at Heart?
Is it just me or do you see it too? The top image is from a link a friend of mine sent me. As I looked at the map, I realized it seemed oddly familiar to me. Then it dawned on me – it was pretty similar to the red/blue state breakdowns I’d seen on news sites and other blogs. So I went and gathered some other data. I got a map of the projected electoral vote for the current election, a map of a breakdown by each state’s Senators, and also one by each state’s Representatives. A clearer image began to emerge for me. In general, the “bluer” a state is when you combine all these factors – how they’re likely to vote come November, and how they’ve elected their most recent Senators and Representatives, the greater their current fiscal woes.
Coincidence? I think not. In general – not always but in general – Conservatives are more likely than Liberals to be fiscally responsible. Now we seem to have evidence that bears this out. My state, IL, is one of the bluest in the nation and I know we’re in serious trouble. Sure, there’s some exceptions, but we can see that in general, the bluer the state, the worse trouble it’s in. Reason enough to vote Republican this election – not just the Presidential seat, but all your local and state elections that are occurring this November as well. Don’t forget the current fiscal mess we’re in was caused almost exclusively by Democrats, and the current Congress is Democrat controlled. Something to think about.
