Obama Democratic Nominee?

. Thursday, June 5

I'll tell you right now, that Obama won the nomination scares the crap out of me.

It took the media picking up on his preacher's wild and crazy ideas for him to finally drop out of that particular church? 20 years of brainwashing won't disappear by November. So, how does all that insane preaching effect his leadership style? Are you willing to take a chance?

Then, we have the issue about his lack of respect during the Pledge of Allegiance (wasn't it?). Any member of our military would've snapped his hand up and on his heart for him, if any had been close. Do you want a man to lead a country he can't respect? Showing up with a flag lapel pin won't make up for that blunder.

I hear he is quite the speaker, able to whip a crowd into a frenzy. So was Hitler. Seems he has young people in his pocket. So did Charles Manson, Jim Jones and David Karesh. Is the entire country ready to become members of the Obama Cult? Pass out the kool-aid.

The pitiful part of the whole danged mess is that everyone is so unhappy with Bush, and by association the Republican party, that it would surprise me if McCain was elected president instead of Obama.

Oh, good grief!

If McCain is elected, that brings up a whole different bunch of questions. But, I'll save that for another post.

Add me to the cult. But no really...

I can't imagine that Obama's minister was preaching the same sermon every Sunday. I've been sitting in church and at times, thought, geez, this is just a bit too much, over the top, or you know, sorry, I can't agree on this one. If you are consistently getting that message over time, then yes, I would question whether or not my values were consistent with that message.

However, if the Obamas were heavily involved in their church, there are also other things to take under consideration. Besides the minister, there are a lot of other relationships formed within the congregation, which would not be so easily to walk away from. I recently attended a funeral for a co-worker at a Baptist church and it was evident how close the congregation was and how supportive they were to each other. That was a family. You may not agree, but you don't jump ship with every disagreement. If that were the case, I'd have given up extended family holiday gatherings a long time ago.

A racist, or at the very least a separatist, whether the same sermon was given over and over or not, those warped 'values' will come through in many, many ways.

A male chauvanist pig can still open doors, but a dependent type of woman would fall for that more than an independent one would.

I would have to say that the way that church comes across is much like a black version of the Ku Klux Klan. Neither organization would produce a person worthy of the highest office in the country. To actively subscribe to that kind of crap speaks as much about the person that Obama is than anything else.

It takes a discriminating person to sit through that kind of preaching for years, to disagree and to independently cut away when the time comes. The motivation for social acceptance can be interpretted as having an external locus of control - one accepts values superficially to fit in instead of thinking issues through to decide for oneself.

You don't pick family; but you do choose everyone else around you. If the family is destructive, you get away as fast as possible.

Thanks for following me over here, Lisa!

I would argue that "...the way that the church comes across..." is open to interpretation. Based on what you've read, it may certainly seem that way. But if you've got to analyze where your sources are coming from. See example below:


Now the "Pledge of Alliance" incident wasn't really the Pledge of Alliance, even though it sure is going around that way. My husband and I are huge baseball fans and go to a lot of major and minor league games. Most people are not standing during the National Anthem with their hands over their hearts, including my husband, an ex-Marine. He removes his hat and holds his arms down with hands clasped together. He doesn't sing so does that make him less patriotic?

Wouldn't it be refreshing if both sides stopped all the spin and we actually got information relevant to making a good decision? I won't hold my breath on that one.

I agree with you there, Lisa! If only the news had imformation instead of gossip, we'd all be in a much better position to make an informed choice.

Give your husband my thanks for serving.

My sentiments regarding Obama are similar to yours. I remember what Jim Jones did to approximately 900 men, women and children with his "charisma." I watched the news as a young girl and saw all the bodies one next to the other on the ground. These people believed in him, gave up the little they had and followed him to a "Grand Utopia." People still follow countless charismatic leaders, well versed leaders who rape their countries and their people. I do not want a good looking, charismatic speaker with little political experience to govern this blessed country.

If folks just did their homework and went back and looked at Obama's voting record watched his interviews prior to this year and read his book they would be better informed to make a decision. I respect informed decisions even if someone disagrees with me. I mean, if you believe in socialist principles, hate capitalism, hate supporting your allies, want every citizen to have and be the "same" no worse but no better, then Obama's your man. I can accept that, for it is what you truly believe, but if however, you are like me and believe in the Constitution of the US, love capitalism, free markets, personal responsibility and believe that each man or woman should pave his or her own way, then Obama is not that candidate.

Race is not an issue for me nor is gender. I would not have voted for Hillary either. I refuse to discriminate against people.
As a Hispanic woman, it would insult my very core, if I knew I was selected for a position or organization because of my gender and nationality. I want to be judged for who I am and not for a color or a gender or a religion.

In the end it comes down to what we "believe" to be in our own self interest. Does it not?

You mean, Obama's your Hitler! It seems like the superiority is implied!

It is a personal responsibility thing, and if more were responsible instead of behaving like sheep, someone like Obama wouldn't get a toe-hold.

I don't care about his race or gender - he will not get my vote. It's too dangerous a time in Earth's history to waste time with someone as questionable as he is at the helm.
