Let me be clear at the outset of this commentary. I am not making an attempt to impress you with my piety. Heck, I’m just another old Pharisee trying to make my way through my remaining days on this confused, baffling, wondrous, puzzling, and often enigmatic little mud ball floating in third place from the […]

Obama revealed a socialist agenda. “Spreading the Wealth” is his tax policy. (Conservatives view tax policy as a means to raise necessary revenue for necessary services. Liberals view tax policy as a means to raise necessary revenue, and to direct behavior. Socialists and Marxists view tax policy as a means to redistribute wealth and restructure society!) A large portion of Americans still find socialism distasteful.
America has been slowly but surely headed toward a socialist government since FDR’s “New Deal.” In the 1960′s it was Lyndon Baines Johnson and the “Great Society”, and now, the crowning touch, Barack Hussein Obama and the… what…”Spread the Wealth Around” government?
Have you ever wondered about “community organizing” and the swarming “get out the vote” goon squads that the Left increasingly mobilizes for presidential elections? ACORN is one of the largest of these entities and has an extensive and long history with Barack Obama. It is one of the central players in the massive Democratic voter registration drives you’ve been hearing about over the last few months.
There is a thread of fear running through the right side of the political spectrum in America. It is so real you can taste it. You can see it in the eyes of conservatives. You can hear it in their voices and you can even physically hear it when it is whispered into your ear. I will quickly add… it is fear mixed with resignation. Conservatives speak of it only in whispers. The left doesn’t speak of it at all because they are completely clueless about it.
Obama’s message and the theme of his campaign are those the Democrat Party has always used to acquire political power. They are the promises about tax cuts that mysteriously never occur once they are in office.
They are about protecting people from every kind of change that could harm them and they promise “change” as a government that will come to their aid in sickness, in their old age, to help their children attend better schools, to help them go to college, and on, and on, and on.
Earlier this week, conservative pundit Michelle Malkin, on her blog, wrote a reveling piece titled, “Obama in 2001: How to bring about ‘redistributive change.’” In her very intriguing article about the recently released radio interview of “The One” in 2001, we are peeling back the onion layers and are finally getting at the core of who Barack Obama the man actually is in his own words. WARNING! … and it’s not going to be good for America.
The lawsuit against Barack Obama challenging his citizenship eligibility to serve as President of the United States has been dismissed with the ruling that Philip Berg, the plaintiff, had no standing as a US voting citizen to bring the suit. Dismissal on these grounds means the judge as decided that the MERITS of the suit don’t have to be weighed or decided (so he won’t be on the hook for such a decision either way!) The FACTS of the case never get presented in open court, and the documents don’t have to be produced. A very clean getaway for Obama.
Christians founded this nation, and they will either save it or let fall into the hands of a Socialist-Marxist and his minions. By refusing to vote for Sen. John McCain, Christians will bear a huge portion of responsibility for abandoning their nation in its time of greatest need.
I came across something President Dwight Eisenhower said a few decades back. He said: “History does not entrust the care of freedom to the weak or timid.” When Ike said it… it was profound. It is even more profound, if that is possible, today.
In the 1980s I found myself traveling all over the United States in the employ of a corporation’s quarterly newsletter. I visited many cities and places, discovering the unfailing courtesy and good will of Americans everywhere I went. One of my favorite places was San Francisco. It is picturesque, sits beside a bay spanned by a marvel of engineering, and has great restaurants, hotels, and other attributes.
Once upon a time in a land far, far, away… illegal Immigration was a serious problem and the legal citizens of that land were up in arms about it. Then the issue disappeared. What happened? Methinks the media happened.
Have you wondered why Illegal immigration dropped from the radar screens of the media during the presidential campaign? I have. I suspect many of you have, as well.
If Bill Clinton was the first black president, Barack Obama, if elected, will be the first “gay” president. No, I don’t mean he’ll personally decorate the West Wing, open a bathhouse in the Rose Garden or take up with Barney Frank. I mean he’ll be the most radically pro-homosexual, anti-family president in history. He’s very quietly pledged as much to the homosexual “Human Rights Campaign” and other fawning members of his homofascist fan club.

When historians look back on the 2008 U.S. presidential election, they may determine race and trust were the silent and deciding factors in the surprise election of John McCain. Those same historians may also conclude Barack Obama played a significant role in his own defeat by making race an issue and by eroding the trust of voters by refusing to place his faith in them.
America was founded on Christian-Judeo principles. Yet, how many who claim to follow Jesus Christ feel a deep abiding love for Him? Do we seek His guidance when we choose our close friends? “How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers!” (Psalm 1:1) This is a very strong admonition.
While I won’t launch into a diatribe about Al Gore and the merits and demerits of an impending global catastrophe, allow me to look at what I consider radical environmentalism from both a macro (large) and from a philosophical perspective.
