Why I'll be writing my name on the ballot

I have never been what I would say a FAN of Obama, but I didn't really hate the guy either until recently. In fact, at one time I considered voting for him. But then a strange creepy feeling crept up in my gut, and I've learned to trust that feeling.

Then Oprah jointed his efforts. That's when the creepy crawlies really took over. You see, I like Oprah. I think her show has some great information at times and her recent "Oprah's big give" effort was commendable. However, there is something that bugs me about Oprah. I might get flamed for saying this but it won't be the first time I've been flamed. I think Oprah is racist.

I totally beleive in equality for all US citizens. I beleive slavery was an abomination and carry shame that my ancestors may have been a part of it. HOWEVER, I don't agree with black people continuing to take that out on white people today. I never in my entire life had slaves working on my property and neither does anyone I know. And chances are, YOU have never been a slave. So we need to just stop it and practice the social equality that we ALL want for our children's future. We need to BE the example. So get over here and give my white irish ass a hug, will ya?

Ok, the only reason I even brought that up is to make my point. When Oprah teamed up with Obama I kinda made the ooooh crunchy face. Now I don't know if he shares her views or not, so I have to give him the benefit of the doubt and say he does not, but it's something I can't ignore. You are judged by the company you keep.

The more I learned about Obama, the clearer the reasoning for my gut feeling became.

He has almost no experience dealing with national issues and risks. That is scary to me. How competent and able are you when you don't know what you are doing?

Obama is pro-choice, even for partial-birth abortion. He cried “horrific” when the Supreme Court banned partial-birth abortion. Supports no care for babies born alive who were victims of botched abortions. This is DISGUSTING and inhumane. Recently he said that when his daughters are older, if they "made a mistake" he wouldn't want them to have to pay for it by having a baby.... WHAT?!

He voted “in favor of giving illegal aliens further rewards and other incentives to come such as in-state tuition, educational benefits, welfare, and health care services” per Immigration Stance.

He also tells a lot of lies:

My Grandmother Has Always Been A Christian - she does her daily Salat prayers at 5am according to her own interviews.

Father Was A Proud Freedom Fighter - his father was part of one of the most corrupt and violent governments Kenya has ever had

I Never Practiced Islam - you practiced it daily at school, where you were registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years, until deciding to run for office.

My School In Indonesia Was Christian - you were registered as Muslim there and got in trouble in Koranic Studies for making faces (as per YOUR OWN book).

Because I Lived In Indonesia, I Have More Foreign Experience - you were there from the ages of 6 to 10, and couldn’t even speak the language. Please.

I Won’t Run On A National Ticket In ‘08 - yet here you are, despite saying, live on TV, that you would not have enough experience by then, and you are all about having experience first. Did you miraculousely find an experience tree?

The Ethics Bill Was Hard To Pass - it took just 14 days from start to finish.

Without Me, There Would Be No Ethics Bill - you didn’t write it,introduce it, change it, or create it.

I Wrote A Tough Nuclear Bill - your bill was rejected by your own party for its pandering and lack of all regulation - mainly because of your Nuclear Donor, Exelon, from which David Axelrod came.

My Economics Bill Will Help America - your 111 economic policies were just combined into a proposal which lost 99-0, and even YOU voted against your own bill.

I don’t Have Lobbysists - you have over 47 lobbyists, and counting.

I Am As Patriotic As Anyone - yet you won’t wear a flag pin and you don’t put your hand over your heart during the Anthem?

My Church (Trinity church) Is Like Any Other Christian Church - your church is so extreme, the pastor who married you, Rev. Wright, just got done blaming the US for 9/11 and named Louis Farrahkan their person of the year. The church is founded on racism and hate.
Any father who approves of his children being taught racial hate and division should not lead this country. He chose to take his small children to a church where their little minds were poisoned by Racial hate. Is that what he has planned for the minds of OUR children?

Now. Do politicians lie? Sure. All of em do. That doesn't make one worse than the rest. Something about this guy just rubs me the wrong way and when I think about him running this country I get the same feeling of fear and dread as I did when Georgie won the vote. And we all know how that turned out..........

And before you ask. No, I'm not necessarily a Hillary promoter. Honestly at this point I'm not sure who I'm going to vote for at all. And the more I research it the more I may decide I hate them all and write my own name on the ballot in November. Who knows.

yikes, makes me glad to be aussie.

our leader changed last year, i didnt vote for him and he seems to suck as a leader.

the election 3 years before the last one the oposition leader taught his children to hate anyone that was in political oposition to him.

this dude didnt win and went on to assult people and end up in court.

if obama doesnt win, you will probably find him much the same way as what happened here 4 years ago.
