Obama's Lack of Character and Socialist Beliefs a Threat

With a voting record to the left of the only openly socialist in Congress, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Sen. Obama, a product of the notoriously corrupt Chicago machine which rewards political expediency over character, is a plainly arrogant, narcissistic, calculating and carefully choreographed politician with seductively messianic charm, but with what appear to be disturbingly shallow core values.

An unapologetic and habitual flip-flopper, pied-piping sloganeer and nimble flimflammer, this woefully inexperienced and self-consumed elitist with not a single significant accomplishment to his name has been openly endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America,, Hamas and the Communist Party USA. Need I really say more?

With his possible election to the White House by a starry-eyed and fawning electorate, so goes the America I have loved and for which so many Americans, some of whom were my buddies, have shed their blood to protect.

With what might well be a Democratic-Socialist takeover in November, I really have to wonder if heartland Americans will any longer feel that the alien country which ensues will be worth the blood of their precious sons and daughters.

Let there be no mistake: America is more than ready for an Afro-American or female president. But, God-willing, it is not yet ready for a far left socialist.

Clearly, Sen. McCain, a lackluster moderate liberal Republican, is the only legitimate choice left before us.

The voters have a little over 90 days to responsibly sort it out. Let's hope their objectivity--and not their emotions--rule the day.

(You may want to read Dr. Corsi's Obama Nation which will be available for purchase August 1st. Since 2006, Dr. Corsi, a Ph. D. in Pol. Sci. from Harvard University, has been documenting Obama's background. I understand it is 300 pages long with about 700 footnotes. So, it sounds like it is well-researched and, therefore, authoritative. I plan to read it as well. I hope he's prepared for the mindless and mean-spirited leftist onslaught which is surely in store for him. As we all know, the left is notoriously thin-skinned especially when dealing with what may well be the truth about their candidates.)

Socialist Tide Likely Unstoppable

For a long time, America has been inexorably drawn to the left.

To wit, were JFK, my hero of yesteryear, be alive today, his conservative governing principles would be in stark contrast to the uninspired and progressive big government of 2008. While JFK would be stunned, Thomas Jefferson would be staggered and brokenhearted.

Dominated by the elitist and progressive Obama-Pelosi-Reid triumverate, the transformation on January 20th to more intrusive big government, suffocatingly higher taxes and spending, expansion of bloated bureaucracies and domineering unions--to which we will all be tax-paying servants--and to the globalist and environmentalist de-construction of America will be well on the way. And, of course, our military and weapons development programs will again be eviscerated in order to pay for expanded government giveaways and vote-buying programs, rendering our communities vulnerable to attack and to Islamofascist subversion from within.

Make no mistake, folks, a clean sweep of the White House and Congress by a Democratic Party hijacked by the far left will usher in the greatest expansion of government since FDR and LBJ. Our founding fathers' principles of small government, states rights, personal liberty and free enterprise will have been dealt a devastating blow from which the nation will not easily recover.

If the Democratic Party takeover in November is complete, failed Euro-style socialism and secularist dominion will have been democratically embraced by a starry-eyed electorate seduced by soaring, yet empty and misleading, messianic rhetoric. An empty-headed pop culture in combination with a craven appetite for bread-and-circuses (entitlements) will have conspired to effectively weaken the foundation of a once thriving and dynamic experiment in private enterprise and individual freedom. In short, an apathetic, distracted and misguided American electorate may well have given away all that has made America so profoundly exceptional and uniquely successful and powerful.

In the absence of a responsible and vigilant electorate, the only check on this socialist takeover will be conservative talk radio which the Democratic apparachik is already plotting to shut down with the re-imposition of the so-called Fairness Doctrine. That done, the takeover will be virtually complete and a political correctness favoring the state will be in force. The gallant American experiment, the envy of the world, will be on its way to failure and ruin. Like the mighty Roman Empire, its unravelling will have come from within--not from without. We will be our own undoing.

Because most Americans are asleep at the switch and have abandoned their responsibility as citizens of this great republic, the helm of state is slowing but surely slipping into the hands of Washington bureaucrats, lobbyists, unionists, and career politicians, many of whom are hostile to American traditions & values, and most of whom are bent solely upon preserving and expanding their political power at the expense of "we the people". With a complete Democratic takeover in November, the helm of state may have irretrivably slipped from our hands.

Good luck and protect the 2nd amendment like never before. You and your grandchildren may need its protection in the future.

Patriotism or Political Expediency

Absent right-wing public attacks on Senator Obama's patriotism, doesn't it seem a tad peculiar, indeed suspicious, that a serious presidential candidate has felt the burning need to convince Americans of his patriotism? Historically, it is simply unprecendented.

In part, perhaps the following may explain the Senator's motivation in this regard: his close association during his prep school years in Hawaii (1975 - 1979) with mentor and father-figure, Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Communist Party USA whose first name Sen. Obama very warmly mentioned in his book, Dreams from My Father; his nearly 20-year close association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, a now well-known racist and adherent to a virulent Marxist Black Liberation Theology whom the Senator only recently--and reluctantly--disavowed; his long association with unrepentant domestic terrorists, William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, neither of whom he has, so far, renounced; and the political endorsements he has received from the Communist Party USA, the Democratic Socialists of America, and Hamas, a terrorist organization.

Given this extraordinarily unique background for a presidential candidate, is it really so difficult to understand why the Senator so zealously and noisily proclaims his patriotism? (Indeed, is it any wonder why his handlers clearly prefer the carefully scripted teleprompter performances over the impromptu townhall medium?)

In our headlong rush to replace an unpopular Republican president with a Democrat--any Democrat--we may be getting a lot more than we ever bargained for.

Clear-eyed Americans not yet spellbound or consumed by Sen. Obama's messianic socialist rhetoric, "hope-and-change" flimflam, ever-changing positions and shameless pandering should continue to be thoroughly circumspect. And, yes, alarmed. Very alarmed.

"Fairness Doctrine" Brazen Liberal Ploy to Muzzle Opposition

Since liberal talk radio has been unable to successfully compete in the free market, liberals are again pushing for the re-imposition of the so-called Fairness Doctrine, the purpose of which is to force radio broadcasters to preempt commercially viable conservative talk radio. It's really that horribly simple.

By forcing broadcasters to provide "equal time" to less marketable opposing points of view, the disarmingly misnamed Fairness Doctrine would, in effect, grant presidential-appointed Federal Communications Commission (FCC) bureaucrats, reminiscent of Goebbel's Propaganda Ministry, the draconian power to shut down conservative talk radio.

Rep. Louise Slaughter, entrenched local congressional rep, her party boss, Nancy Pelosi, easily the most shamelessly partisan, obscenely self-serving and obstructionist House Speaker in American history, and Senator Diane Feistein, another liberal lackey from California, have been key proponents of the Fairness Doctrine's re-imposition on American broadcasters and upon the American people.

In alliance with these protectors of our 1st amendment rights, the so-called "media reform movement"--of which Dan Rather, disgraced CBS anchor, and Bill Moyers, an inveterate left wing nut, are members--is pulling all stops to ensure that broadcast consumers--you and I--are denied the choice of what we wish to hear on the airwaves. And because conservative talk radio has been so popular--and, thus, more commercially viable than liberal talk radio--the Democratic Party finds it once again necessary to do what the free market is unwilling to do: to silence conservative talk radio once and for all. Apparently, de facto liberal domination of TV and the print media is simply not enough.

To explain it another way, in a free market, programming dictates listenership and the level of advertising dollars to sustain that programming. Naturally, advertisers are not interested in doling out advertising dollars for programming with lousy listenership. That's just good 'ole common business sense. And since unpopular programming, such as liberal talk radio, will not attract the level of advertiser dollars needed to profitably sustain those broadcasts, the Fairness Doctrine will enable the FCC to compel broadcasters to shut down conservative radio programming as well. All in the lofty interest of fairplay and of leveling the playing field, of course. Get it? Clever ploy, huh?

In his politically expedient effort to tack to the center, Obama recently professed his opposition to the Fairness Doctrine. But, since his heart-felt positions on other issues over the past several months have proven to be disturbingly meaningless, I don't count on his keeping his word on this important issue either. Should Obama become President of the United States and attempt to transform this country into the "Socialist Republic of America", the transition will entail relentless--and very likely successful--efforts to effectively quell opposing political viewpoints as well. To suppress conservative talk radio, all a President Obama would need do is appoint one more liberal to the FCC and, by FCC fiat alone, consumer choice in radio broadcasting will be dead, and with it another nail in the coffin of our once inalienable rights will have been driven. And what will be next? It would only be a matter of time before cable, satellite and the internet are also "regulated"> Big Brother is on the move again.

To counter this encroachment on our freedom of choice, Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind) has introduced the Broadcaster Freedom Act (HR 2905) which would permanently bar reinstatement of the sinister Fairness Doctrine. Currently stuck in the Democrat-controlled Energy & Commerce Committee, he has been pushing hard for a discharge petition which would force an up or down vote on the House Floor. So far, he has 200 signatures--but not ONE Democrat has signed on! Needed as of today are 18 more signatures to get the bill to the floor over the objection of Comrade Pelosi and her lickspittles on the Committee.

If Americans are prohibited from choosing the programming or newsprint they wish to hear or read, democracy will have been dealt another blow and tyranny will have won a crucial victory. Safeguarding our future as a vibrant republic of laws and individual liberty is up to us alone.

Please call, write or email your reps in D.C. and DEMAND of them that they sign on to Rep. Mike Pence's discharge petition, thus allowing the Broadcaster Freedom Act to come to the floor for a vote NOW! You've only your 1st amendment rights to lose if you don't take a stand.
