Reasons to Vote Yes For McCain–No For Obama.

McCain Palin for President

The scheduling and consummation of a plan of mine has been changed because of a comment I just received here: Jean’s remarks are directly in line with a strategy I had measured for my site.

I am setting up this column, will leave it up for an interval, and from time to time between now and November 4th, will place it again as the front page. I want to hear from every one of you who will be voting for Senator McCain and who thus will be voting against Senator Obama. I had planned to initiate the column by stating one of my reasons for voting in this way, but now will let it roll with Jean’s remarks which I have brought over from the column where she actually posted.

Let’s hear every plausible argument. Let them be sensible, documented, well-worded, and non-hateful. Refrain from name calling. Do not worry that someone may call you unchristian or racist (unless indeed you are, and if racist remarks are posted, I will remove them.) If you want to remind us that McCain’s fiscal plan will benefit our economy and that Obama’s will damage our economy, cite your unbiased source. You may bring an entire statement over if it’s not too long. Be sure you clearly state your source and authority. If you cite a video, please give us a link.

There is a lawsuit pending concerning Obama’s birthplace. If you want to discuss that, name your source. I would consider that credible to discuss, since it is more than an internet rumor: a lawsuit has been filed.

Important Note: No negative remarks concerning Senator McCain or his ticket will be allowed. Likewise no positive remarks will be considered for Senator Obama. There are places for such discussion–even on my blog, but this column is not one of those. If they are posted here, I will take them down.

This is probably the most important election of my lifetime, and of yours. I feel I must do everything I can to help assure that Senator McCain is elected. Do not be discouraged because of the polls. Rally. Get out the vote. Study. Think. Read. Inform us of anything pertinent you discover. Let us hear from you. Let us all pull together on this.

First comment from Jean:

Not everyone knows this yet but it is an established and proven fact that any sincere Muslim will tell you that an “Infidel” in the Koran is ANYONE who does not embrace the Muslim religion and that Muslim’s are therefore justified, whether through deceit or any other method, to kill that person or force them to embrace Islam. According to the Muslim religion, they will actually be rewarded for doing this. Whether you are Republican or Democrat, please read the attached quotes. I have no party loyalty but I do have a loyalty to America and I care about not only my own life but the lives of my extended family and friends and the generations to come. Believe me–if you ever believed anything–anyone who says in ANY situation that they would “side with the Muslims” either is ignorant about the true teachings of Islam–in which case they are a terrible threat to America, OR they know what Islam stands for and is counting on the fact that most Americans only believe about Islam what they have seen on the Oprah show or some other source that doesn’t reveal that for a Muslim the ultimate plan for any non-Muslim is to convert them or kill them. I care and this is the truth.

Why is all of this going unnoticed by the media???? They send 1000 reporters to Alaska to dig up something on Sarah palin and they have this right in front of their eyes!

Books by Barrac Obama: DREAMS FROM MY FATHER and The AUDACITY OF HOPE.

From Dreams From My Father: ‘I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.’

From Dreams From My Father : ‘I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.’

From Dreams From My Father: ‘There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.’

From Dreams From My Father: ‘It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.’

From Dreams From My Father: ‘I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa , that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself , the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.’

And FINALLY the Most Damning one of ALL of them!!!

From Audacity of Hope: ‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.’

We CANNOT have someone with this type of mentality running our GREAT nation!! I don’t care whether you a Democrat or a Conservative. We CANNOT turn ourselves over to this type of character in a President. PLEASE help spread the word.

Amazing, a democrat set (said) this .

Thank you Jean for taking the time, and having the courage to post this information. I have read it before, and each time I do, I am sickened. Yes, WAKE UP, America.

Jean, please find the documentation for this statement of yours and post it as a comment:

“… it is an established and proven fact that any sincere Muslim will tell you that an “Infidel” in the Koran is ANYONE who does not embrace the Muslim religion and that Muslim’s are therefore justified, whether through deceit or any other method, to kill that person or force them to embrace Islam.”

REASON to vote against Barack Obama: He wants to take money from some and redistribute it as he sees fit. No. That is not the American way. That is the road a socialist nation. Take a look and a listen to “Joe, the Plumber,” the star of the final debate–mentioned 15 times.

    McCain use extremely low level method to make people support him in this election. He keeps saying gossip to mislead the people. He said Obama’s tax policy is socialism. However, which part of Obama’s plan match with Socialism? None of the policy matches with socialism. And he tries to use a fake case, the Plumber, Joe. He only asks some question which can never happen. How can a plumber earn 250,000 a year? McCain have no case to use but to use this unrealistic case. It is his policy worse than Obama. In 2001, he did not use this kind of low level method in the election. McCain is even worse than before. Logical people will never support McCain. He keeps telling lies. He vote for support the use sent army to Iraq, but now, he said I actually against this policy. In his plan, he is going to send even more army to Iraq. Isn’t a soldier should realizes the important of peace? Why he want to don’t end this war, but to enlarge the war? Why he doesn’t know the feeling of the soldiers? He is lying! He thinks all the America is stupid. How can he treat the people like that? Isn’t he thinks all America are fools? He is really hypocritical!

    Even more interesting was how the author of “The Obama Nation” was expelled from the country when he arrived to do more research. The liberal “Time” gives it’s report here. http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1847965,00.html?iid=digg_share

    Whether or not the article is factual, Obama’s link to Raila Odinga is and Raila Odinga’s persecution of Non-Muslims is. Interesting enough is that Kenya supposedly found something “wrong” with Corsi’s (the book’s author) visa. Anywho….something to add a little more thought provoking information to the consideration of Obama.

    It is interesting to see the similarities between Odinga’s attitude regarding his election “issues and Obama’s. ” “In the disputed Dec. 27, 2007, presidential vote, Odinga charged he was denied winning the presidency by voter fraud.”

    I was just reading an article about Bill “O” and Newt Gingrich talking about the bailout. Something called ACRON will get $500 m per year.
    “Well, in the housing bailout this summer, the Democrats, Frank and Dodd insisted on including $500 million a year to Acorn, which was a left wing community group which became famous, in part, for demonstrating and pressuring banks to make bad loans to poor people. I mean, this was their technique. And in fact, at one time, Acorn actually brought in Barack Obama as a young man. And he trained them on how to go and embarrass and humiliate and put pressure on bank presidents and bank officials to get them to make bad loans to poor people,”

    I saw this article on onenewsnow.com this morning —

    Obama would silence critics, warns activist
    Chad Groening – OneNewsNow – 10/17/2008 6:30:00 AM
    Christian political activist Dr. Rick Scarborough is confident that if Barack Obama is elected president, he will swiftly use executive orders to silence his critics and enact a far-left, anti-family agenda.

    Dr. Scarborough is a pastor and pro-family activist. As a private citizen, he is publically warning Christians about the dire consequences of a Barack Obama presidency. He claims one only has to look back to 1993 when Bill Clinton took office and began to issue a slew of anti-family executive orders. Scarborough contends it is going to be much worse with Obama.

    “I think what you’ll see is Barack Obama solidifying power in short order, either through the legislative process with hate crimes legislation. And then he’ll turn on talk radio with reenactment of the ‘Fairness Doctrine.’ I’m not so sure he’ll wait for an act of Congress. I think he’ll do some of this with unconstitutional but never challenged executive orders, but he will silence his critics within days,” he explains. “One thing you can always count on is [that] liberals, unlike conservatives, know how to use power — and they will use it swiftly and decisively. And all I can say is heaven help us if this man becomes president of the United States.”

    Scarborough contends Obama is a committed socialist who intends to radically transform the United States.

  9. I completely agree with the following comment by Larry Elder. Here is the link to his complete article, http://jewishworldreview.com/cols/elder101608.php3

    “Democratic presidential contender Barack
    Obama promises to “cut taxes for 95 percent of American workers.” That’s not possible.

    Why? More than 30 percent pay nothing in federal income taxes. Obama comes up with this number by calling tax credits “tax cuts.” One can debate whether these things are good or bad, but they are not tax cuts. McCain offers refundable tax credits for health care, as well as other credits, but he doesn’t insult the intelligence of the American people by calling them “tax cuts.” When Obama’s credits go to people who pay no federal income taxes or who pay less than the value of the credit, they are not “tax cuts.” They are transfers of money from one pocket to another, or redistributions of wealth, but they are not tax cuts. ”

  11. I have several points that concern me about the Democratic candidate for President. I plan to post them in single issue format.
    I abhor the idea of the redistribution of wealth! Those who would use the tax code as the preferred format of both collection and distribution. I do not have a lot. Yes, I did go to work each day, saved a little, bought as conservatively as I was able, which today equates to me having a little. But for someone to arbitrarily raise my tax burden with the aim of giving a little to someone else who is younger, stronger and as able bodied just for them to have more. WRONG! YES!! There people who do need or require my assistance and when I am aware of such a situation I do help. But, not for this help to be filter through the bowels of the Federal Government, I will vote against this idea ever time.

  12. REASON TO VOTE FOR SENATOR MCCAIN:

    Headlines this morning: Oct. 17th

    Last One Turn Out the Lights: Marines Quietly Begin Leaving Bases in Iraqi Cities

    ‘Sen. Obama didn’t support the surge, wanted to pull out, said that it
    would fail. I supported it when it was the toughest thing to do. I
    believe that my record on national security and keeping this country
    safe is there. And the American people will examine our records, and I
    will win.” Senator McCain

    More from this morning’s account

    :

    “Marines no longer use violence as an indicator of how much progress they have made. Two years ago they had 400 attacks — roadside bombs or shootings — at U.S. forces every week. In February it was down to 30 attacks per week. Now it is down to under 12 attacks per week. There hasn’t been a Marine death in a few months.

    Troop numbers have dropped, as well — down by 40 percent since February. About 26,000 Marines still serve in Anbar.

    “In Anbar there is no longer an insurgency,” Kelly said. “Unless someone does something stupid (for instance, if the Coalition were to accidentally kill a large number of civilians), this place will not go back to the way it was.”

    In football terms, Kelly says, the Marines are “in the last 10 yards of this fight.”

    “Could it go back? I don’t think so,” he said firmly. “We are winning this thing.”

    REASON TO VOTE FOR MCCAIN: He has military experience and a history of wise judgments. His faith in “The Surge” has been proven well-founded.

    Obama Misleads Voters on His Abortion Record
    by Jennifer Mesko, editor

    ‘He has a long record of opposing any legislation that protects innocent life.’

    In the third and final presidential debate Wednesday, Sen. Barack Obama seemed to have a tough time telling the truth.

    The National Right to Life Committee has worked to separate fact from fiction when it comes to the senator’s record on abortion.

    Falsehood: When asked about his repeated opposition to the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act — which would protect babies who survive an abortion — Obama claimed: “The fact is that there was already a law on the books in Illinois that required providing lifesaving treatment.”

    Fact: The law “on the books” — 720 ILCS 510.6 — applied only where an abortionist declared before the abortion that there was “a reasonable likelihood of sustained survival of the fetus outside the womb.” But babies are often born alive a month or more before they reach that point.

    He adhered to his agreement with Senator Obama to limit himself to public campaign funds.

    McCain has had to adhere to spending limits because he accepted public funds for his campaign after winning the GOP nomination in September.

    “Part of it is they agreed to accept federal matching funds, which capped the money,” said Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), who has served as a regular adviser to McCain.

    “Obama did not. Obama has access to a lot more money than we do,” stated the lawmaker.

    For once I am glad that the lowly media has hounded “Joe the Plumber” for interviews (like the one you have posted). Joe puts Obama’s economic plan’s into easy-to-understand words, he breaks it down for what it really is… socialism.

    Why isn’t the media all over William Ayres (sp?), the other name that McCain had brought up during the recent debate. Hmmm… is there something worth hiding here.

    You are so right about needing integrity in the White House. Things have become so corrupt. With Obama, I only see it becoming all the more. No transparency. Why will he not disclose his medical or school records. If I were to apply to a university or a job I would be required to show school records… why should our next president not be required to do this and even more!

  17. REASON TO VOTE AGAINST OBAMA:

    He was less than truthful about a publicly financed election.

    Obama said in a questionnaire in Sept. 2007, “If I am the Democratic nominee, I will aggressively pursue an agreement with the Republican nominee to preserve a publicly financed general election.”

    In Feb. 2007, Obama had challenged Republican presidential candidates to agree to public financing of the general election. John McCain responded positively.

    Fast forward 16 months. Obama announces that the system of public financing “is broken,” and he will rely on his well-oiled private fundraising machine.

    Obama did not pursue such an agreement, and it is now reported he is spending more on his campaign than any other person in history.

    Government Watch judges this as a carefully parsed retreat on public financing–the turnaround is blatant.

Even the most liberal of democrats would not join him in support of infanticide. Obama’s vote makes me to believe he is a murderer at heart.

    I agree with the other’s that have already stated Obama’s failure to stand for the sanctity of life regarding late term abortion.

    Also, during the most recent debate, Obama’s history of voting was brought up by senator McCain, and that how he voted present numerous times. Taking a look at what Obama has been doing for the last 2 years is very important.

    If Obama couldn’t take a clear stand for issues then, and now we hear mere words, promises… basically rhetoric. Then how will he DELIVER once he is in office.

    Understanding that McCain will most likely not be able to rescue our country completely, yet there is a hope you can count on, his history is a reflection of who he is and what he can do.

    When people are asked, “Can you name one thing that Obama has accomplished while he has been in the senate?” The only positive thing I’ve heard was, “he was a community organizer.” (Talk show host, Sean Hannity, aired this discussion with a public audience).

    My husband & I will be voting for Senator John McCain, as will my three children and their wife/husbands. I do not feel Obama is truthful. Why all of a sudden is the media stating guilt is not by association? All that I read and hear about Obama forms a solid conclusion that he has surrounded himself with influences that are not desirable for the leader of this great nation. Another great factor is his health care plan. If Obama were in office we would not be able to afford to keep our small business. We do not offer health care to our employees because we simply cannot pay this and all of the overhead. Therefore not only would we have to close our business, but our employees would be out of work that they are so thankful to have. Listen, we live in Louisiana and our employees are from Colorado, but there is no work there. Please, tell me how this is going to help these guys? If they are no longer employed then the government will be paying all for them.

    Obama in my opinion seems to think the more control government has over our lives, the better.

    Just One of the many reasons I will NOT vote for Obama:

    As of late, the Obama campaign works tirelessly once again to “disaffiliate” him from yet another tie that is very questionable. ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, a community-based organization that advocates for low- and moderate-income families by working on neighborhood safety, health care and other social issues.

    ACORN says it is non-partisan though it is often aligned with the Democratic Party on policy. [Williamson, Elizabeth; Mullins, Brody (July 31, 2008).] Read article here for yourself: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121745181676698197.html

    After reading this article I find it discouraging to understand that even the latest housing bill signed in The White House will enable even more the fraudulent practices of ACORN.

    In Nevada, ACORN has been found to have conjured up fraudulent voter registrations, and the people they “hire” to canvass for registrations are even criminals that have committed identity theft (how great is that, they fit the job requirements perfectly!). Read the article here for yourself: http://www.lvrj.com/news/30613864.html

    Obama HAS defended ACORN in lawsuits in the past, and HAS worked with them in Chicago, however, now they say they are not associated with them. I beg to differ… “JUST WORDS, JUST WORDS”, Obama says. Isn’t it even more interesting that those who at the forefront of this investigation are Democrats, thus McCain, is not out to “smear” his opponent as many of the latest Obama ads will tell you.

    “ACORN is a nonpartisan organization, but it is affiliated with a political action committee that has endorsed Democrat Barack Obama in the presidential election. The Nevada authorities spearheading the investigation, Miller and Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto, are both Democrats.
    Obama’s work as a community organizer in Chicago in the early 1990s was with Project Vote, but his campaign said it was not affiliated with ACORN at the time. Obama also was part of a team of lawyers representing ACORN in 1995 in a lawsuit that accused the state of Illinois of putting up barriers to poor people trying to register.
    A spokeswoman for Obama’s campaign would not comment on his past ties to the group but said the work ACORN is now engaged in is separate from the campaign.”
    By ADRIENNE PACKER and MOLLY BALL, REVIEW-JOURNAL, Oct. 08, 2008
    Copyright © Las Vegas Review-Journal

    If you really take the time to look into ACORN you will also find that funding they received in the past has largely been from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae; the source of the housing crisis we face now. Then you may want to take a gander at the top dog’s of these companies, who have made millions, and you will find they are a part of Obama’s cabinet.

    There are a number of reasons why I am voting for McCain and against Obama, but this probably sums it up best.

    At the Saddleback Civil Forum, Rick Warren asked both candidates to explain at what point a baby receives human rights. I am quoting their verbatim answers as published on transcripts.cnn.com.

    Obama answered, “Well, you know, I think that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.”

    McCain, on the other hand, immediately answered, “At the moment of conception.”

    I support John McCain because, even beyond the issue of abortion, McCain’s answer to this question tells me that he is better able than Barack Obama to discern right from wrong and to answer unflinchingly, appropriately, and concisely to defend good over evil.

    That is the sort of person I feel can best lead our country, and that is the sort of person who will get my vote.

    Serving God and being he best Christian I can possibly be is the ultimate goal for my life. Therefore how can I vote for some who’s belief system is so contradictory to mine? Also, I care for (more than life itself) all my 13 grandchildren. I don’t want them to grow up in a world with someone like Obama as president. It really has nothing to do with his race. His inexperience and stands on our “liberty and the pursuit of happiness” is way too far on the left that I could never go there with him. I believe McCain and Sara Palin are more in tune with the majority of the citizens of our great country. They are not perfect (no one is) but they are, by far, the best choice to lead our Christian Nation.
