Obama On Immigration
Obama’s plan for universal health care would include coverage for the illegal aliens who make up the greatest percentage of this nation’s uninsured.
In March, Obama voted to table a Senate amendment that would support the withdrawal of federal assistance ‘to sanctuary cities that ignore the immigration laws of the United States and create safe havens for illegal aliens and potential terrorists.
Obama supported the McCain-Kennedy immigration reform legislation that was defeated in 2006. Whereas McCain has since taken the position that securing the borders must precede immigration reform, Obama continues to support full amnesty for all of the estimated 20 million illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. and supports their eligibility for the federally mandated benefits such as Social Security regardless of the status of border security.
Barack Obama supports providing state-funded welfare benefits to legal immigrants.
While a state senator, Obama supported allocating state funds to provide Medicaid coverage to legal immigrants.
Obama has supported increasing the number of work visas issued each year, such as the H1-B visa and has worked to increase the number of immigrants coming into this country every year by every means possible.
Obama co-sponsored a bill that would provide federal funding to help states provide health care and education to non-U.S. citizens.
Obama strongly supports encouraging American children to become bilingual and, at one point suggested that it should be mandatory.
In June, Obama voted against a Senate provision that would declare English the national language of the United States.
“Instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English, you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish.”
Obama On National Security
At a time when this nation is being seriously threatened by psychotic third-world religious fanatics intent on developing ballistic missile systems capable of delivering nuclear payloads to any target on the planet including the United States of America, Barack Obama has stated that, if elected, he will gut the missile defense program created by President Reagan and cut “tens of billions” of dollars from the Defense Department.
He has entirely denied the positive affect of the troop surge in Iraq and has promised to withdraw American soldiers from that nation when we are standing on the edge of victory. A premature troop withdrawal from Iraq would entirely destabilize the country and encourage Iran to swiftly move in and replace the democratic government with a repressive Islamic theocracy. This would exacerbate the unrest throughout the Middle-East for decades to come and unwarrantedly boost Iran’s dominance over the region to our detriment. The forces of world-wide terrorism would become more entrenched than ever before and increase the probability of an attack against the heartland of America like never before.
Joseph Biden, Barack Obama’s running mate, stated on October 19, 2008, “Mark my words: It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy,” Biden said. “The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Watch, we’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.” Even Joe Biden probably does not know how true his words might actually prove to be because the world is a very dangerous place and this is truer today than ever before. The former Soviet Union has dedicated vast sums of money toward rebuilding their military power and China is pouring unimaginable wealth into the development of high tech weapons systems and military training. The continued security of our nation is contingent on maintaining our military superiority and the price of not keeping the wide lead we currently have will be counted in the lives of American people lost as a direct result of Obama’s complete disregard for reality.
Obama On Abortion
As an Illinois legislator, Obama was the only senator to vote against the Induced Infant Liability Act, which would have protected babies that survived late-term abortions. He refused to support the legislation to protect babies surviving late-term abortions because he did not want to concede that even though these children were alive and outside their mothers’ wombs, they were in fact “persons.”
Despite the fact that a representative from the National Abortion & Reproductive Rights Action League (NARAL) stated that “NARAL does not oppose passage of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act,” Obama voted against this bill in the Illinois senate and killed it in committee, and when the bill was referred to the senate’s Health and Human Services Committee, which Obama chaired, he refused to call the bill up for a vote.
As an Illinois senator, Obama opposed legislation to criminalize the transportation of minors across state lines for the purpose of obtaining an abortion.
Obama On The Nation’s Economy
In 2005, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was in a position to prevent much of the financial agony that America is in now but the campaign contributions he received from Franklin Raines during his 2004 U.S. Senate campaign talked louder than his conscience.
Franklin Raines, while Chairman and CEO of Fannie Mae, began a pilot program in 1999 to issue bank loans to individuals with low to moderate income, and to ease credit requirements on loans that Fannie Mae purchased from banks. Many authorities have noted that the expansion of easy credit to these high-risk home buyers was one of the major contributing factors to the subprime mortgage crisis.
On December 21, 2004 Raines accepted what he called “early retirement” from his position as CEO of Fannie Mae while the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission investigators investigated Fannie Mae’s alleged accounting irregularities. These “alleged accounting irregularities” included widespread accounting errors and the shifting of losses so senior executives, such as Franklin Raines, could earn large bonuses
In 2006, a suit was filed against Raines in order to recover some or all of the $90 million in payments made to him based on his overstated earnings, furthermore, Civil charges were filed against Raines and two other former executives for $110 million in penalties and $115 million in returned bonuses from the three accused. The settlement that ultimately came out of these court actions resulted in an agreement by the three accused to pay a combined total of approximately $3 million in fines. These “fines” are to be paid by Fannie Mae’s insurance policies.
In 2005, when a bill was introduced in the Senate to curtail the actions of lenders like Fannie Mae and forestall the economic disaster that many knew even then to be immanent, Barack Obama supported the individuals who eventually killed the bill.
On July 16, 2008, The Washington Post reported that former Fannie Mae CEO, Franklin Raines was being used as an economic adviser to Barack Obama’s campaign.
Obama On Race
Obama has portrayed himself as a candidate for all Americans, however, his close association with individuals like the Reverend Jeremiah Wright and the support he has received from people like Louis Farrakhan carries an entirely different message.
Barack Obama has wielded race as a weapon throughout most of his life. He has used the color of his skin for his benefit when he fraudulently applied for entrance at Harvard as an African-American despite the knowledge that he does not meet the legal standard required for this claim and he has fraudulently allowed himself to be portrayed as an African-American throughout his campaign for the presidency to gain the support of this nation’s black voters, most of whom he views as being vastly inferior to himself.
Obama’s refusal to denounce Wright’s intensely hateful, outrageous and racist teachings about “our racist competitive society,” and that American’s middle-class ideals are nothing more than a clever way to deceive black Americans into mindless cooperation ultimately serving our society as an alternative to “killing them off directly” or “placing them in concentration camps,” is a certain indication of Obama’s acceptance of those beliefs, or at the very least his willingness to manipulate those beliefs for his own benefit.
Barack Obama has identified himself as an African-American and denied the truth that he is predominantly Arab. He has consistently failed to identify with black American culture because he has never lived in America as a black man. He grew up in white society, was raised by his white grandparents and attended expensive white private schools all of his life. He has never been poor, hungry, deprived or oppressed at any point in his entire coddled life and any attachment he professes for this nation’s black citizens stems more from his desire to manipulate than from any doubtful urge to actually benefit.
Barack Obama’s leadership will not be noted for bringing the American people together, but for furthering the divide between them. Obama’s perverse perspective on the status of race relations in this nation will create greater hostility and division than we have seen in many years and will inevitably destroy much of the progress that has been made toward America’s push for racial equality.
Obama On Taxes
Obama has stated that he will let the Bush tax cuts expire which will result in an automatic 5 percent tax increase for practically all taxpayers.
Obama has expressed a desire to double the capital gains tax from 15% to 30%.
Obama has said that he wants to increase the tax on dividends paid to stockholders
Obama wants to increase the amount of taxes paid on gasoline, electricity, natural gas and other forms of energy
Obama want to increase the estate tax and take a larger bite out of any money that we have left over after a lifetime of paying taxes on it already.
The tax increase required to pay for Barack Obama’s National HealthCare Plan alone will devastate the savings of most American citizens to benefit a relatively small group of people who do not have medical insurance and a growing body of evidence supports the fact that nearly half of these individuals are not even legal residents of this country and should be deported.
According to the National Taxpayers Union, Obama has proposed at least $287 billion a year in new government spending. He also co-sponsored a Senate bill to spend at least $845 billion a year to fight global poverty. Barack Obama will pay for these increases in government spending in the only and most obvious way possible – by dramatically increasing the tax burden on the American people to the point that our savings are entirely decimated and all hope of financial security at some point in our lives will be entirely destroyed.
Obama On Patriotism
Barack Obama refused to wear an American flag pin.
Barack Obama refused to put hand to heart during the national anthem.
When his Reverend Wright was busy trashing the United States of America from his pulpit, Obama said nothing in the defense of the nation he now hopes to lead.
Barack Obama told his rich friends and campaign contributors in San Francisco that the hard working folks in Middle America “cling to guns or religion” because they are bitter over the tough economic times.
Barack Obama stated on national television that he was embarrassed by the fact that so many Americans could only speak one language when foreign tourists coming over here to visit speak many languages.
Patriotism is what Americans feel when they see the flag, hear the anthem, or see an American soldier and realize that, despite it’s problems, they love America, and know beyond any doubt whatsoever that they are among the privileged few who can call America their home. What Barack Obama feels for the United States of America and the American people is contempt not patriotism.
Obama On Denial
Barack Obama has denied the American people access to the information necessary to clear up reasonable doubts about his actual country of birth, he has denied the statements about his early Muslim training he made in his own book when asked about his religious persuasion.
He has denied his close relationship with Antoin ‘Tony’ Rezko, the Chicago real estate developer and political fundraiser who helped launch Barack Obama on his political career, offered him a job when he finished law school and gave him the lot that Rezko purchased next to Obama’s house.
Barack Obama has denied his close relationship to the domestic terrorist and Marxist, William Ayers, a member of the Weathermen terrorist group which sought to overthrow of the U.S. government, took responsibility for bombing the U.S. Capitol in 1971 and was responsible for killing a San Francisco policeman during a bombing. This is the same William Ayers in whose living room Obama’s political career began and it is the same William Ayers who served with Barack Obama on the board of the Wood’s Fund. It is also the same William Ayers who was instrumental in starting the Chicago Annenberg Challenge and got Barack Obama to serve as president of the board of directors.
Barack Obama, if elected, will destroy much of what we as working class Americans see as good and hopeful in our nation. He will make it nearly, if not entirely impossible for us to achieve financial security at any point in our lives and he will use our hard-earned income to finance the furtherance of idiotic government programs designed to benefit only the elitist politicians in Washington and increase their power and control over the American people. Under his leadership our government will become less responsive to the American people and more dictatorial in its control over our daily lives. Our nation will not be made more prosperous or more secure as a result of his leadership, and quite frankly, we will be lucky to survive four years of his policies intact. America needs change but it does not need to abandon the principles of liberty, freedom and democracy in the process of making those changes, and it certainly does not need to implement socialist reforms that history has repeatedly demonstrated to be so disastrous everywhere else. Barack Obama is a fraud and a charlatan and it is our duty and our obligation as American citizens to ensure that his ability to influence our destiny and the destiny of our children is never realized.
