As this campaign grinds down to its final days, Barack Obama continues to lose footing in the polls and has had to resort to the old way of running a campaign. He continuously accuses McCain of Republican attack tactics and yet he is doing the same from his side. Such political ads as wondering why McCain can’t remember how many houses he has and accusing him of being out of touch because he can’t work a computer and needs help to send emails (couldn’t be those old war injuries or anything?) just make us all weary of the game. And they serve as reminders that the only thing Obama plans to change is our way of life as Americans, not Washington. Now Obama has devolved all the way to continuously accusing McCain and Palin of being liars. Pretty harsh word and one that you better be able to back up. His camp released this yesterday:
“Since naming Gov. Palin as their vice presidential nominee, the McCain campaign has distorted, distracted and outright lied to the American people about her record in a desperate attempt to hide the fact that a McCain/Palin administration would be nothing more than a continuation of the failed Bush policies of the last eight years.”
First of all, we have to believe that George Bush has been a complete failure. He has screwed up and at times left me, as a conservative, cold, but we have not been attacked again and that has taken some doing. Without security in this nation issues like education and the economy mean nothing. Without freedom, I’d rather die and George Bush has maintained that fairly well. I disdain the Patriot Act, but keep in mind the Democrats have been for it too. Obama’s change for this country means a march towards Marxism. As a matter of fact, what scares me most about Obama is that some of his ideas don’t just mirror Marxism, they almost create a new dynamic. A new kind of Marxism. A new kind of Facism. A kind of government that a new generation can readily embrace because they don’t have the bad track record to look back on. His new way could lead to that great white hope. For those of us who know better, we realize what that “new” way will lead to and it is destruction.
For me, this campaign has really lead me to search to my core values. I was so torn because McCain has pissed me off alot in the past. But our country has boxed itself in with a two party system. I had decided to vote independent because I wanted to vote for something instead of against. As this campaign rolled on long enough to reveal the true nature of Obama, I found myself really considering McCain again because I know Obama is not just a mistake for America, but a destroyer of America. I really truly fear an Obama presidency. Not in the snarky Hollywood way (like Matt Damon with his comments about Gov. Palin) but because of the ideas he puts forward and the possibility of those ideas going forward unchecked. You see, we have a Congress that is on his side and may grow so Democratic that Republicans couldn’t even philibuster. And there will probably be a need for two more Supreme Court justices. Under this Congress and Obama we would see all three branches of government lean left. And left is death for America. The Constitution would be even more forgotten and we would become something else. Thankfully, McCain picked Gov. Palin because it has made my decision easier. I have hope again. That is something Obama has promised, but will never deliver.
