How Could Mr. Obama Have Won Again ?

Our nation is in distress.

   I don't begrudge a minority candidate at all.  I would have no problem with a Democrat such as former Virginia Governor Lawrence Douglas Wilder being president.  Color is not what it has been about for me. It never was, and likely never will be.

             A bit more than four years ago, I ordered Barack Hussein Obama's books from www.half.com and I read them.  He's not a bad person, he simply believes different things than I.  He believes that a US National Health is needed. He believes that people should be forced to buy the health insurance he indicates. He believes that the federal government needs to be more powerful.  He believes in plans and programs which lean toward socialism.  I simply don't.

           I believe that most times, the states themselves know what is best for their own geography, their own situation, and their own citizenry, and that those running the states are elected by the people. I believe that most of the time, the people know what is best and can do it.  When someone is not doing well, most of the time, others step in and help, churches especially. I don't think US government NEEDs to be intrusive.
           Also four years ago, when two of our children were attending Virginia Commonwealth University, prior to their graduations, they were asked by other students who they planned to vote for.  They said that they did not discuss politics. One of them was told, "Anyone who doesn't vote for Obama deserves to be dead." and "If you don't vote for Obama, then you are dead".   Of course, this is absurd. No one has any way of verifying who you voted for, however the threat is there.

           Have we reached a tipping point in our country where the people who don't read, don't understand, and know nothing about socialism or history vote in such large numbers that we are powerless to fix the changes which the Obama regime has created in the past few years ?  We have shifted from a nation of innovators and creators in business and industry to a nation of those who cannot think for ourselves, and who depend on a media with equal intellectual impairments to do this for them.  Continued debt and a foray into sub standard health care will kill our country, if Iran, and other forces do not.  Will we head to the same destination as Greece is now ?  Will there BE a United States in another four years ?   I certainly hope so, because I have invested all of my life in it, as have my husband and all of my kids.
            It's certainly time to prep in anticipation of very difficult times ahead.

Yeah.... but he gave us a free cell phone. How cool is that? (snark)

I disagree on one point. I believe Barack Obama to be a deliberately evil man. I've never felt that way about any president, or presidential candidate before. And no, it's not about color for me either, I voted for a black man for president clear back in 2000, but he didn't survive the primary.

I am hoping he isn't. What happens next will tell.

Maybe a cellphone along with welfare is enough to make some people like a particular candidate. I will be fiercely loyal to a politician who does their job well, but a cell phone of any kind, that just doesn't do it for me.

As I wrote today, America has no where to go now but hit rock bottom. The illegals were allowed sanctuary, the minorities were given cell phones. When you appeal to the interest of the many, it garners votes. I'm not interested in being illegal or having a handout cell phone. I'm interested in keeping what I worked to have, but it's going to be taken away from me in the interest of keeping welfare in the black.

This goes beyond sad or scary. It will end up being "us" against "them" due to "him" and he knew how to make us the minority.

Congratulations on the book! I was not surprised at all by the outcome of the election.

JaneofVirginia said...

Thanks for the Congratulations. I am not only surprised by the results of the election, but also how angry and bitter even those who voted for Mr. Obama are. Today, almost everyone I encountered was angry and bitter and I called police on a man who was having great difficulty with road rage.
