Obama, Obama, Obama

Now that the citizenry has spoken, I wonder what is it to become of this country? I really never liked either one of our major candidates. I preferred McCain over Obama, but I didn't get excited about the McCain campaign until Sarah came along. She breathed new life into an impotent and dying campaign. Obama's election is certainly historic, as he has been the ONLY black to actually succeed in getting elected. There were those before him,
(e.g.: Alan Keyes, Jesse Jackson), but they could never garner enough of a following to even be competetive.

I have had my reservations about Obama since his selection as the Dem candidate. Too many corrupt affiliations, questionable citizenship, socialistic policies, etc. The typical Conservative complaints, I suppose. I'm still waiting on the results of Berg v Obama. That could prove interesting as there seems to be a few people from Kenya claiming that Barack Obama was born there, including his grandmother and a religious figurehead. I wonder if the Obama-ites will accept his disqualification easily, should it be proven? I kind of doubt it.

What bothers me more about Obama, since his election, is the fact that he and his handlers have resorted to using the term, "Rule" and "Ruler". I'm sorry, but America does NOT have "rulers". We have Presidents, Commanders-in-Chiefs, and leaders. This causes me great consternation.
Secondly, he's already started in with his anti-gun policies. To re-instate the 1994 "Assault Weapons Ban". That was a failed anti-gun legislation that was little more than a feel good proposition. A good synopsis of the failed legislation is Here Furthermore, assault weapons have comprised less that 1% of ALL gun crimes. I wouldn't waste any more of our representative's time. I would, instead, focus on punishing the criminal that uses a gun in the commission of a crime. Of course, our courts seem to have a revolving door, at least in some areas of the country.

Next, we have the massive handout programs that Obama campaigned on. Excuse me, but, just HOW is Obama supposed to raise this money to enable these massive handout programs ? There is only one viable alternative, raising taxes. While I'm an unemployed, retired military veteran, these increased taxes might actually benefit me. However, I'd LIKE to think that I have a broader view of this country than just myself. I can see it affecting many people by increasing their taxes, elevating the unemployment levels, and in general, doing more harm than good. History PROVES that every time taxes are raised, bad things happen. Anybody old enough to remember the Carter regime will remember just how life was back then.

One of the other items that bother me is that other free countries are starting to become concerned about Obama's continued support. That's telling me that the entire world, especially major nations, doesn't have the confidence in the Obama Presidency. They are preparing for the worst. Of course, as the old adage goes, "If you want Peace, prepare for War". Russia and China are rattling their sabres and the US is sitting idly by. I'm fairly certain that nothing much will happen until AFTER Obama is sworn in.

As we observed during the campaign, Obama is ready to walk all over the First Amendment. He wanted a controversial advertisement removed from the airwaves in Missouri. That, in itself, should show EVERYBODY what Obama is up to. Furthermore, he doesn't consider the US Constitution a viable document in this day and age. This makes me question as to just what else he has in mind for "our rights"? I'm certain that the rights violations that the Bush regime has committed will pale in comparison. I pray to God that I'm wrong !!!

Another thing that disturbs me is the blind following that Obama has recruited & obtained. His followers seem to have been brainwashed. The don't seem to be paying attention to the truth, his intentions, or anything brought to light about him. It's as if they've drank "the Kool-Aid". Now they want to have an actual holiday for Obama. WHAT THE HELL ?!?!?!?!? The man hasn't even taken office yet !!! A HOLIDAY ?!?!?!? Come on..... let's get real. That would equate to having a special holiday for JFK, Reagan, or any of the other historic presidents, even before they've made history or had a successful tenure in office. Honestly, I'd rather see a holiday for Rosa Parks. At least SHE deserves some recognition !!! What else I think is that his followers are going to be sorely disappointed when he fails to do everything he's promised to do. This story just shows that he's already making excuses and trying to forestall the inherent disappointment of "his people". Already, he's quickly editing his website,, in order to minimize expectations.

All in all, I hope & pray for this country and that we will survive his tenure in office. I'm pretty sure that we, as humans, will survive his "leadership", but I'm not so sure that the America I grew up in, served, and have come to love, will.

Unavoidable scenario: If SCOTUS disqualifies Obama BEFORE 1/20/09 inauguration, McCain is POTUS per remaining electoral college electors; if SCOTUS disqualifies Obama after 1/20/09 inauguration, Hillary likely becomes POTUS per vote of Dem controlled House of Rep. Either way, is clear Obama will NOT be or remain POTUS.
