Obama, McCain, My America
I have been following the news very closely with regard to the election and the campaigns of both candidates. It is no secret that I support John McCain. At this stage of the game I think I would support Mary Poppins if she were running against Obama.
Let me clarify one issue before I go any further. I could care less that Obama is “black!” That is not why I so strongly oppose his bid for President of these United States. The issue is whether or not I want to continue to live in a Democracy which has endured since 1776 or a “socialist” state which will most assuredly chip away at all our rights protected and guaranteed in our Constitution!
Finally, thanks to “Joe the Plumber,” the silence surrounding Obama’s radical beliefs and his training in Saul Alynsky are becoming an open issue as they should! Finally people all across America are beginning to get a clear picture of Obama the radical he is! Finally questions are surfacing that ask where is all his money coming from!
What puzzles me about all the questions in the media is why are the media types asking these questions as if they are at a loss to explain it all? Anyone can look up the organizations who donate to Obama at the IRS website. Oh, wait, Obama is getting his money from you and me, the ordinary American citizens. Well, I don’t know anything about the rest of the ordinary American citizens; but, I can’t afford to send McCain $200.00 though I would if I could. Certainly I am not unique. After all, the price of gas alone prohibits me. That doesn’t even take into account the increase in my grocery bill, utilities, and other household expenses.
I do know it also can’t be coming from all the “500,000 “+” black and other minority votes who were registered in Virgina, my state, and across the nation by ACORN, the local community voter groups who work in association with ACORN, and all the other “hundreds of groups” in and supported by the “Shadow Party Seven Sisters” and member groups. These people were stationed at local gas stations, food marts, grocery stores, and other places frequented by minority and low income minority groups and “whites!”
I personally asked several of them who they worked for and was told they were non political. But, when I did Google searches on their organization, they tracked right back to ACORN and affiliated groups. However, their impact can only be felt at the polls when they like me, cast their votes. Their impact can only be felt in $1.00-$5.00 donations, like mine. So where is all the money coming from that is supposed to be coming from everyday Americans “like you and me” in the amount of $200.00″ a pop?
Go take a look at MoveOn.org. and all the other groups associated with the Shadow Party in the 2004 election as George Soros tried to single handed oust incumbent President, George Bush. Trace the donations received from George Soros, Jane Fonda, Peter Lewis, and Stephen Bing, the top donors, and all the other wealthy donors , when the Shadow Party was founded.
Richard Poe has a great article, “The Shadow Party’s “Gang of Five” at Discoverthenetwork.org. In his article, Poe brings our attention to Articles written by a former White House correspondent and a well known blogger. Poe says:
In his new book The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy, National Review White House correspondent Byron York cites figures from the tracking organization Political Money Line which show that, of the $230 million spent by pro-Democrat 527 committees during the 2004 election cycle, more than $78 million came from just five individual donors.
Poe further says:
Clarice Feldman of the American Thinker has named these Democrat mega-donors the “Gang of Five.” They are, in descending order of the size of their contributions:
George Soros ———————- $27,080,105
Peter Lewis ———————— $23,997,220
Stephen Bing ———————- $13,952,682
Herbert and Marion Sandler — $13,007,959
TOTAL ——————————- $78,037,966
Peter Lewis, Stephen Bing and Herbert and Marion Sandler are all close friends and associates of George Soros.
What about this 2008 Presidential election ? I searched Google. At OpenSecrets.org I found the following information about Obama’s funding:
Individual contributions $579,178,033 91% PAC contributions $1,280 0% Candidate self-financing $0 0% Federal Funds $0 0% Other $59,994,968 9%
Full Disclosure $330,536,978 (90.7%) Incomplete $10,784,060 (3.0%) No Disclosure $22,981“The site credits ‘Center for Responsive Politics’ for this information.”
Individual contributions $579,178,033 91%
I find these figures staggering. I can’t even begin to comprehend such a huge amount of money from individual contributors. Now, let’s see how McCain stacks up:
Individual contributions $195,927,301 54% PAC contributions $1,412,559 0% Candidate self-financing $0 0% Federal Funds $84,103,800 23% Other $78,724,163 22%
Full Disclosure $160,023,465 (87.1%) Incomplete $6,048,661 (3.3%) No Disclosure $17,688,556 (9.6%)
“The site credits ‘Center for Responsive Politics’ for this information.”
What really angers me most about this all is that the very American hating people behind this movement, George Soros, the Jane Fonda’s of Hollywood, the Clintons, and all the other millionaires in America, self made or inherited, have only gotten richer due to the hated America and American capitalism they so hate. If they want to “distribute the wealth,” why don’t they practice what they want to force on the rest of us Americans? Why don’t they combine their wealth and then divide it equally and “distribute their wealth” equally to themselves and every American as a gesture of good faith that their goals will work and they really believe in it??!!
I say they are a bunch of self deceiving, greedy, opportunists! I say they ought to go to all those nations they so admire and live. I want to really see them do this. I want to see how long these pampered, ideological, pathetic excuses for human compassion and concern continue to believe they, and only they, know what is best for all America and the peoples of the world. I invite them to leave the America they find so repugnant! No, I challenge them to do so immediately! Greedy,self serving hypocrites!!
Let me tell you what I believe in. Let me tell you what all across America you will hear with a resounding ring all across America if you succeed, louder than your cries of victory!:
The Declaration of Independence: A Transcription
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
The 56 signatures on the Declaration appear in the positions indicated:
Thomas Heyward, Jr.
Thomas Lynch, Jr.
Charles Carroll of Carrollton
Richard Henry Lee
Thomas Nelson, Jr.
Francis Lightfoot Lee
Robert Treat Paine
This is the sacred document that contains, guarantees, and protects everything real Americans love and hold dear. It even protects even you pathetic bunch of pampered, spoiled, rich, and treasonous “revolutionary” wannabees!! I also challenge you all to read every single word. If you can read the words in these two documents and not feel your hearts swell with pride and thanks to God, I feel sorry for you all!!
Since the end of the war that fired the “shot heard around the world” these two documents have stood for and guided America to what it is today! This is the America that I love. This is the America that I served and took an oath to “serve, protect, and defend! This is the America, with all its flaws and warts that I will always love and want to pass on to my children.
As grew into maturity it endured many growing pains, first with the Civil War, then with the Civil Rights Movement of the 60’s. Through each of these tests, America grew. We, as Americans, will never forget the stains incurred in those times we swayed from the sacred tenets of these two documents. The greatest stain we live with is the horrible way we treated our native Americans.
It would be naive in the extreme to say every American automatically enjoyed the same rights and privileges found in these two documents. We are a nation comprised of many races, cultures, religions, prejudices, economic, and educational backgrounds. From the very beginning we were an experiment that drew the scorn and laughter of all Europe. Early on, Europeans looked at us as a nation of “diluted” and “sub intelligent” people because of our mixture of blacks, whites, yellow, and other ethnic cultures and peoples. We have and will continue to be a nation looked upon by many European nations a reminder of all they failed to accomplish, the harmonious blending of peoples from all walks of life because without destroying individuality.
This growth, adaption, or whatever you want to call it, is sometimes a slow process. Sometimes, as with the Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement of the 60’s violent. But in the end, we, Americans all, come through it all a better nation of people. We do not hide our dirty laundry. We do not pretend it doesn’t exist. Nor do we apologize for our imperfections. What we do do at all times is learn from each other and grow together in a spirit of co-operation and common cause. The willingness of America and Americans to openly make mistakes, accept responsibility for our mistakes, and learn from them is what makes our nation great. I, for one, cannot imagine living in any other nation in the world.
For all of these beliefs and ideals, I cannot support anyone who would tear down all we hold dear and stand for! I could never embrace the ideals of an Obama, Pelosi, or Reid! As an American, I would never cut and run from a problem by destroying these things we hold dear on the artificial premise of a “false Utopia!”
