It’s Finally Here – Election Day is Upon Us
It’s time to get out and exercise our most important right as free individuals in this great country. A lot of you may have already exercised that right through early voting – good for you! For the rest of us, we must exercise that right.
Each election seems to become more important than the last, and this one is no different. It may be even more important on a larger scale, just because of what is at stake.
Now, I’ll say up front that if people get nasty in the comments (if any comments are left in the first place), they’ll be turned off. I won’t tolerate that here. That being said, most of you, my loyal readers, probably line up with what I believe pretty well, so we probably won’t have a huge problem with that. To the rest of you who may have found this post through a search engine, you’ve been warned. 🙂
I am whole heartedly, 100% against Barack Hussein Obama. Some will call me racist just because I am against him. Some will call me a religious bigot because I’ll say that he is a Muslim.
In a nutshell, here is why I am against this sorry excuse for a human:
- He is all for killing innocent babies. Not only during pregnancy, but even after a baby is born alive after an attempted abortion. That is infanticide.
- He, at the very least, has socialist tendencies. He will redistribute the income of the American people, and promote laziness as a byproduct of that. He has also said that he will place such restrictions on the coal industry with the purpose of bankrupting it because he is a tree hugger. This would, in his own words, “necessarily skyrocket electric bills.”
- He is anti-2nd Amendment. He may talk ‘pretty’ about it, and make himself sound like he’ll back the 2nd Amendment, but any time anti-gun legislation has come up, he has voted against gun owners. If he’ll restrict our 2nd Amendment rights, that opens the doors for him to restrict other rights without opposition. An example of this is that he kicked all of the reporters for papers who endorsed McCain over him off his plane. He wouldn’t even let them report on the campaign at all without getting the information second-hand.
In short, he’ll begin taking away our freedoms.
Now, I’m not for McCain, either. He isn’t as 2nd Amendment friendly as I’d like him to be. He is, however, against abortion. He is for capitalism. There are several things that I don’t agree with about him, however, at the same time.
Here is my conundrum. I voted for Bush. Twice. He was better than the alternatives, for sure, but I’m disappointed in a lot of the things he’s done. I don’t want to experience that same disappointment with McCain, and I’m sure that I will if I vote for him.
If, however, I vote for an independent candidate, that is, as far as the outcome is concerned, the same as voting for Obama.
So, do I put in a vote “against” Obama, or do I put in a vote “for” someone else that lines up with my belief system more? It is a tough choice for me. I honestly don’t know of anyone else I can really vote “for” without writing someone in, and that would be even more of a vote for Obama.
See, the problem with voting for an Independent or a write-in is that 99.9% of those who are against McCain, are for Obama. So that leaves those who could potentially vote for McCain. If the rest of the votes against Obama are spread out among several candidates, Obama will have the majority.
So, again, do I put a vote in “for” someone I agree more with, and have a clear conscience no matter who gets in, or do I put in a vote “against” Obama in an attempt to simply keep him out of office in hopes for a better America?
