Ya know, if obama were a conservative Republican honoring his oath to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, if he was working to rebuild America the way the Founders envisioned America, if he treated all Americans with the respect they deserve, if he wasn't a racist, if he wasn't pushing us toward Socialism, if he didn't want to take what I have worked so very hard for and give it to those who haven't earned it, I could get behind him 100%.
But that isn't obama. It isn't who he is or what he does.
I can't get behind him. I can't support the man or his policies. In my eyes he is the embodiment of something evil.
We still don't know who he is. Never before has an American President kept so many secrets about himself and his life. Never before have the American people been willing to accept that in a President. He is a stranger. Think about that.
For 8 years we listened every day to Liberals bash President Bush and his policies. They spewed their hatred every day in every way they could. Now that they have the President they dreamed of, they continue to spew their hatred toward those who disagree in any way with them. Liberals are hateful people. Hatefulness is a way of life for them. Liberalism is a mental disorder.
I don't doubt that obama was born in Hawaii. I don't doubt that his mother is Stanley Ann Dunham. I don't know why all of the records pertaining to his college education are sealed. I'd be more interested in knowing what is in those records than in seeing Romney's tax returns. I'd like to know where obama has been, what his passport looks like, who he has associated with... I'd like to know about his Selective Service registration. I'd like to know the truth behind his Social Security number(s). I am amongst a minority in this regard. Most people don't care. Liberals and Conservatives alike. Why does no one care about the past life and background of the President of the United States? Why does no one care about the things that have made him who he is?
I don't believe that obama is eligible to President because I do not believe that he meets the definition of Natural Born Citizen as it was taught to me and everyone else in the 1960s. "A child born on American soil of an American citizen father and an American citizen mother." Totally logical.
Attention Republicans: Marco Rubio doesn't qualify either.
Of course it is possible that Barack Obama Senior isn't obama's father. I suppose it's possible that Frank Marshall Davis is obama's real father. That would change everything, wouldn't it...? That would make obama a natural born citizen, solving one huge controversy surrounding the man. It would, of course, create another set of problems for obama, FMD having been an ardent Communist and all. And Stanley Ann having been a Communist. And Stanley Ann's parents having been Communists. Of course, that's all "crazy talk". ;)
There is a lot that we don't know about our current President. Things that we are entitled to know but probably never will.
It certainly says something about the intelligence of the electorate in America.
McCarthy was right and deserves an apology from all of those who called him crazy and paranoid.
Ahhhh well, vote obama out in November and all of the mystery surrounding the man will be quickly swept into the dust bin of history. Everything about him will soon be forgotten. Everything other than the fact that he was America's first obviously multi-racial President. That's about the only thing regarding his Presidency that could be considered a good thing.
I'm not sure that Romney, or any other current politician for that matter, is any better. American politics today are, first and foremost, about keeping the Political Class in power. Nothing more, nothing less. Everything else going on around us is diversion to keep our minds occupied on other things.
Does the Political Class have an agenda? They certainly do. To declare otherwise is to admit that you are either blind or stupid. Or both. Is it an agenda that is detrimental to America and the American way of life? Look around. You tell me if its detrimental to America.
How did we get here?

When did we allow the militarization of our police forces? Why did we allow it? They are killing us, ya know. With impunity. Why do we allow it? Is it part of the plan? When will we strike back? It is our natural right, ya know. It's a big deal. Forces at all levels of our government are killing us. And we are allowing it. Because we are afraid of them. We believe that they have the power to do what they do. The only way that they can have that power is if we give it to them. THEY DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT, NATURAL OR LEGAL, TO DO THE THINGS THEY DO TO US.
We have become the sick and twisted citizens of a sick and twisted nation. It pains me greatly to think that, to say that, to know that. This isn't the America that I was born in and raised in. This isn't the America that I served 12 and a half years in the Army for, prepared to defend her in any way needed. Am I the stupid one?
No one cares.
We have a lot of work ahead of us to correct the mess that we have allowed America to become.
