More election stuff...

alright, so some of you might be tired of hearing me bash Obama, but really, if McCain did anything worth bashing you'd hear about it, because I don't entirely like him either. Right now he is the lesser of two evils.

Read This, or at least skim it please.


The problem I find with this is that like the article says it is inappropriate for Obama to even attempt to do this. It displays a lack of tact and foresight, that are so necessary for our President to have.

There are actually two reasons that this is inappropriate and disgraceful.

#1 Like the article cited, there is a certain lack of sensitivity in using another nations symbol of unity and patriotism for the personal and political gain of a person from another country.

#2 Runs deeper. Why is Obama campaigning in Germany at all? Does the German public have the right to elect the president of the United States? No. Here is my theory on what Obama is trying to do. This is theory and conjecture only, but quite serious if it is true. By courting and winning the favor of the populaces of the foreign countries he can portray himself as the choice of the "World Community" to be our next leader, or at least as an acceptable and approved of man by the other people of our planet. This ,Obama needs since he is incurring the wrath of the Muslim countries by forsaking his Muslim birth. (I shall need to tell you about that sometime)

This is downright wrong, unethical and irrelevant. The choice of our leader belongs to the American public and to the citizens of our country alone. By campaigning in another country, Obama is trying to undermine a vote that may perhaps go against him. (again, this pure conjecture and theory but a likely one you must admit) This is as much wrong as it would have been for President Bush to accept the endorsement (I can't remember in which election) of the French President.

A French president wanted to endorse Bush? @_@ I would have said hell'd freeze over before that happened!

I agree, that seems like a very odd request.

Since McCain is running against Obama, as a conservative I have to vote for Obama.

Things will get worse with McCain.

Things will get much worse with Obama. And that is why I am voting for Obama. For things will only get worse with McCain but they need to get much worse for us to survive as a nation.

Of course a statement like that needs an explanation. And I will do so in the form of an analogy. Do you know how to cook a frog? Well, if you put it in a pot of boiling water the frog will quickly jump out. But if you put a frog in a pot of water that is warm and turn up the heat gradually up to boiling the frog will just sit there not even realizing it is being boiled alive.

Obama is the one who puts the frog into the hot water and McCain is the one who turns up the heat gradually. With Obama his extremism will cause a backlash so great that America will start electing good leaders to oppose him. It happened in 1980 and it happened in 1994. And it will happen again.

But McCain he will really be the death of the Republican Party. As I said above things will get worse with McCain and therefore he and the Republican Party will get the blame. And then America will elect a Democrat in 2012 for President. And if recent history has shown us anything it has shown that the Democratic Candidate has been getting increasingly extreme. So I can’t tell you who the Democrats will put up that year but I can tell you that person will be as extreme if not more extreme than Obama. So, how long are we putting off having an Obama-like President? Four Years?

And meanwhile McCain has shown that he wants to drive conservatives and conservatism away from the Republican Party. For those of us who believes that the only solution to our country’s problems, it is unacceptable that neither of the two major parties represents conservative values.

So, I am left with the ultimate act of “tough love”. Not to say there aren’t hard times ahead for there is but that is true with McCain as well. But at least with Obama there is hope that things will get better after him. With McCain all hope is lost.
