Obama is a shrewd socialist who just happens to be African American...well African anyway. We can't seem to validate that American part. I personally had picked three African Americans I would have loved to have seen run for the office of President of the United States before the 2008 election. They were Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, and Herman Cane. Colin Powell dropped off my short-list when he buckled to peer pressure and endorsed Obama. It is ironic to note that he was in the United States military and swore to defend our nation throughout his career, yet even he succumbed to a socialist. His endorsement of Obama was a deplorable act with ramifications our nation will be dealing with for generations to come. Now, I want you all to read this next part closely. Yes, we have historical race issues which can not possibly be rectified because we can not go back in time...but this generation was not at fault. Our forefathers were either victims or to blame and all we can do is pledge not to repeat the cruelties of the past. We can (and must) move forward from where we are and make things "fair" and better. That does not mean "spreading wealth" from the hard working individuals and giving it to the lazy. If we are to pass on cash, it should be earned. The government should create jobs to make people feel proud to receive it instead of entitled to it, thus negating the creation of a strong work ethic for future generations. We must, as one "united" people, tackle the true evil lurking within our nation. Our children (and sadly many adults) are being lured toward life's pleasures and unaware of the slow erosion of personal freedoms. A three-ring circus has nothing on America. We are being bombarded daily with economic problems, terrorism threats, illegal immigration issues, etc. and we are finding it difficult, if not impossible, to keep up. I have a news flash for you...WE MUST! Parents are sitting comfortably in their homes and workplaces thinking they do not have to deal with radical or socialist teachers until college. WRONG! Remember the Bible verse PROVERBS 22:6: Train up a child in the way he should go and even when he is old he will not depart from it. Well, radicals and socialists know a good plan when they hear it! Do you actually think there is some code of ethics among these people whereby they have a "hands-off" policy until our children turn 18? I personally have sat in classes and the subliminal messages are dropped so subtly and their vagueness is so hard to call them on it...meanwhile our children are left to draw their own conclusions...supposedly. If we have taught them nothing at home then the only source of reference is the one being presented at school. Please remember this...If we only see one thing in this world, let it be the value of freedom. If we only seek one hope in this world, let it be freedom for everyone. It will take the entire nation to keep it!
Note: WE ARE AT WAR IN OUR OWN COUNTRY; IGNORANCE, PREJUDICE, AND APATHY WILL BE THE THINGS STANDING BETWEEN US AND VICTORY!
May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
