Why I Fear an Obama Presidency
Normally, the time after an election should be a time to come together as a nation and work on common goals. But I cannot celebrate the election of a radical leftist to the Presidency of the United States. I understand the importance of the symbolism of the first African-American to be elected President. I'd be celebrating this achievement too, if I believed that Barack Obama truly respected the principles upon which this nation was founded.
Despite his soaring rhetoric, I believe that Barack Obama does not respect the Constitution of the United States; he will weaken our national security; he will not stand by our allies; his economic policies will prove to be disastrous; he does not respect the right to life or the right to free speech.
I fear that one of his first moves will be to try to silence his enemies by pressing for the passage of the so called "Fairness Doctrine" despite the fact that he claimed to oppose it during his campaign.
Below is a list of things I'm concerned about. Please come back, because I'll be updating the list with more evidence of Obama's anti-Democratic tendencies:
Democrat Senator and Obama Ally Chuck Schumer compares regulating conservative opinion on talk radio to regulating pornography.
It is the duty of journalists to report critical information that the public needs to know about their government, but the vast majority of media outlets are strongly biased in favor of Obama.
Newsweek Editor, Evan Thomas, now admits that there is a 'slightly creepy cult of personality' surrounding Obama. Why didn't he talk about this before the election?
Rahm Emanuel will be Obama's Chief of Staff. During the Clinton Administration, his colleagues reported that Emanuel became so enraged over opposition to the Clinton Administration that he grabbed a steak knife, stood up and began reciting a list of names, plunging the knife into the table and shouting "Dead! Dead! Dead!' after each one.
Listen to Obama call for a civilian national security force that is just as powerful as the military: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tt2yGzHfy7s
An Obama donor ordered a "Big Brother" probe of "Joe the Plumber" after he asked Barack Obama a tough question.
In his first press conference, he would not answer a question from Fox News.
Vladmir Putin, the Prime Minister of Russia, and his puppet President Dmitry Medvedev, is pursuing an aggressive foreign policy and perceives Obama as weak.
