Isn't this the type of government that causes many people to leave their homeland and come to America. They come for freedom, freedom to do the work they want, freedom to live where they want, freedom to say what they want. (Oh we are slowly using this freedom in America, we have been silenced in many subtle ways.)
Maybe socialism is what is behind Mr. Obama's YES WE CAN mantra--- yes we can take your money and do whatever we want with it. You can make it - we can take it, after all father government knows what is best for you and your money. I am sorry Mr. Obama, you have never meet me and you do not know what is best for me and my money. I have lived my life making those decisions and I pray you will never have that opportunity.
Hope- OH yes let us all hope you do not become president so you do not have the opportunity to implement your socialist/Marxist ideas. If you do win the election lets us HOPE that the American people will wake up and prevent your socialist/Marxist policies from ever being implemented.
I can only vote, (only vote once) and pray that the outcome of this election is in the plans that God has for this good country that I live in.
Here is our other option. Is Mr. McCain the perfect man for this position. I will say NO!! He is the man who wants to keep America a capitalist country. He is just like the rest of us, a man with a history, he has done many honorable things and things that he is not proud of, but haven't we all. He had the courage to choose an intelligent, young running mate who can and will bring new ideas to this country and Washington. Unfortunately our American media is not in love with this side of the ticket so one has to really take the time to find out the good things about these people. It takes time and a commitment to do that, we can not be spoon fed, which the mindset of the public right now is to be spoon fed.
John McCain understands the American I grew up in, the America that is capitalist, the America that has freedoms, the American that allows one to keep his earnings and spend them how the wage earner sees fit. This is the American I want to keep, the America I want to leave for my grandchildren to grow up in.
This is the way I see this election, We have to choices.
Choice 1-- John McCain-- capitalism
Choice 2-- Barack Obama--socialism/Marxism
You make your choice I will make mine.
You might wonder why I am writing this post now so far from November 4th, election day. In Oregon we no longer have the privilege of going to the ballet box on election day, we vote by mail. Ballots were sent out yesterday and we will start our voting when we receive our ballots. Oh, how I long for the day when I did not have to pay to cast a vote( I have to stamp my ballot so it can get to the elections office) or I could walk to the precinct and cast a ballot. That is what voting is, not sitting in my house, filling out the ballot, placing a stamp on it and hoping that it will get delivered and not lost along the way.
I am not a very eloquent writer but I hope that somehow through this muddling about politics you can understand my frustration and fear with this election. I am frustrated with the media and their love affair with one candidate, how the facts are not portrayed but an agenda is pushed down our throats, how one man with one tough question for Mr. Obama can be torn to threads in 24 hours but yet after two years of campaigning we know nothing about Mr. Obama. I don't understand and I can only guess that this is what our spoon fed society wants. America maybe this is our wake-up election.
Vote and please only cast one vote. I will ask you not to follow the mantra of ACORN--vote early and vote often.
Have a good week-end.
Fight on Trojans.
