Stem the Socialist Tide

At a time when much of Europe is trying to reverse the economic damage done by years of suffocating socialism and high taxes, the Democratic Party's captivation with socialism is especially boneheaded.

Hijacked and heavily bankrolled by a utopian, globalist and moral relativist mob of socialist misfits on the left, the Democratic Party appears to have recklessly committed itself to adopting the failed European model.

Unless the tax-and-spend, big-government, welfare-state tide from the left is restrained at the ballot box, our individual liberties and America's economic, political and military pre-eminence--currently the envy of the world--are most certainly doomed.

For the sake of America as we have come to know it--which too many of us take for granted--I pray for unapologetically America-first presidential and congressional candidates who will repudiate the socialist-globalist ideology that has so contaminated the modern Democratic Party. Notable standard bearers of yesteryear, JFK, HST and FDR, would surely find today's party not only unfamiliar but, indeed, alien.

When you vote, think about the country you'll be leaving behind for your children.

Discretion Should Trump Party Loyalty

Mindful of the commonsense wisdom of my parents' counsel that one can be justifiably judged by the company one keeps, it is now painfully obvious to me that Senator Obama is unsuitable for the Presidency of the United States.

His now well-known friendship with Rev. Wright, purveyor of a divisive, race-centered Black Liberation Theology; his association with Wm. Ayers, an unrepentant terrorist; his 8-year friendship in Hawaii (1971-1979) with Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Communist Party USA; his arrogant attack on small town Americans whom he described as bitter and clinging to their guns and religion; his wife's description of America as "downright mean" and her statement that not until now has she been proud of being an American; the alarming, though unsolicited, endorsements he has received from the Communist Party USA, Move-On.og, the Democratic Socialists of America and Hamas, a terrorist organization, are, in their totality, sufficiently troubling to persuade this American not to risk voting for Senator Obama in November.
In the final analysis, objectivity--not blind ideology--should always trump party loyalty.
