A Little Perspective
I'm not ready to give up. Despite what the Obamedia tells us, the race is not over. Remember, they were calling the 2004 race for Kerry right up into election day and polls had Kerry up by 8 points. Now, 4 years later, I have to believe that polling is even more difficult with increased cell phone use and just about everybody having caller ID. So don't believe the hype, it's not over. Still, I know that this time is different. There is an unprecedented push from multiple fronts to get this enigma called Obama, elected. The level to which media elites, celebrities and formerly respected news sources have become volunteer PR firms for Obama, is breathtaking and completely defies logic. Thanks to an 8-year campaign of Bush hatred, both from the media and the Demoncratic party, I believe the Dems could have run a tree stump (about as qualified as Obama), and been in the same situation. Journalistic geniuses like Chris Mathews would be extolling the many virtues of the stumps bark texture, shape and weight, and then tell us how it will change the world for the better with it's fantastic "stump" speeches. Even though I acknowledge the fact that somewhere around 90% of journalists in the MSM are lefties, it still shocks me that they sacrifice a good story and their integrity to provide cover for the man and ideology they obviously worship. I can't help but wonder how this race, or the attitude of the country for that matter, would be different if we had a truly independent and objective media.
Oh well, chalk up another victory for our fine education system - Bill Ayers and Obama style, right out of the Marxist playbook. Through leftist indoctrination, schools do more social engineering than teaching fundamentals. Combine that with a few hours per day of the fine television programming provided from leftist network executives, a little sex, drugs and rock and roll and you get an army of simpletons who will vote for anything that might look good on the front of People Magazine - Obama. That explains the youth vote, but what about the millions of Americans that should know better? My theory is that many of them are sixties leftovers; trying to lay one more groovy trip on the world man. Others are misguided, guilt ridden, limousine liberals who are oppressed with their own success and seek absolution by voting for the black guy. And then of course, there's the 95% of African Americans who will vote for anyone who shares similar melanin content. Martin Luther King Jr. is spinning - his dream has become a nightmare.
So what to make of all of this? While I will hold out hope for a McCain/Palin victory, the fact is that it's quite possible, even likely, that The Twilight Zone we find ourselves in will continue and provide us with our first socialist government lead by Obama, Reid and Pelosi. And if the craziness continues into key senate races, there could be total, unchecked control by the most liberal and inexperienced president in history and followed by the lowest rated and corrupt congress in history. Wow! Before my head explodes, I have to remind myself that we had to endure 4 years of Carter before we could save the world with Reagan. So the silver lining exists. But the cultural tear continues to get worse.
So, if the unthinkable happens, I will continue the good fight until conservative ideology is shut down and deemed hate speech by Barry's thought police. Before that, I'll be a dutiful citizen, pay my increased taxes, probably cut staff in my business, sending more people to Barry's food lines and eventually, move my business to a more business friendly country. I then could send my extra cash to my friends and family in the U.S. military who's budget will be cut and will have to have bake sales to buy bullets - The lefties' favorite dream.
God Help Us!
