He says he didn't know Rev Wright was saying those things, despite over 20 years of sitting in those pews, despite Rev Wright officiating his marriage, despite Rev Wright baptising his children, despite Rev Wright initially being included in his campaign as his spiritual advisor. He didn't know.
He says he didn't know Rezko was stealing government money and leaving the poor he was to house out in the cold, despite Rezko assisting his loan for his $1.6m home in Chicago. He didn't know.
He says he didn't know Ayers was an unrepentant terrorist despite having launched his political career from Ayers' home, despite serving on the same boards in the same socialist/marxist programs with Ayers. Oh yes, he was 8 years old when Ayers bombed police stations, the pentagon, etc. He didn't know.
What else does he "not know"? There is something to be said for the company you keep. It has nothing to do with guilt by association, it has to do with similar philosophy.
It has to do with Obama would not pass a security clearance if he wished to sign up with the FBI.
Obama denies connections to ACORN, Biden denies campaign money sent to ACORN - yet the Obama campaign sent over $800,000 to an arm of ACORN's Citizen Services Inc for a voter registraton program. So what exactly has ACORN been most notorious for in the news this election? How about the 2006 or 2004 elections? Oh, but he didn't know? He was 8 years old when he gave ACORN $800,000?
In the recently released 2001 Redistribution Interview, Obama states the tragedy of the civil right movement was that it guaranteed voting rights and other similar rights, but that the SCOTUS failed to address "economic justice". "Ecomonic justice" = "redistribution of wealth"?
Obama says our constitution is flawed. "It was a remarkable political document....also reflected the fundamental flaw in this country that continues to this day". THIS from the First Term Junior Senator from Chicago with the worst judgement of character ever presented in a Presidential candidate. Oh, but he didn't know.
So you think Bush had a lock on violation of rights with the Patriot Act? Do a search for Obama Truth Squads. Open your eyes and see how the campaign reacts when pressed for answers, when people ask the hard questions, when people dare to bring up Obama's past connections.
While you are at it, search for H.B. 110-808, Department of Peace and Nonviolence Act sponsored by 71 Democrats, 0 Repubicans. While this particular bill may or may not pass, I do believe that Obama's goals raise similar type bills. I find the following passage to be particularly disturbing:
102(f)(6) create and establish a Peace Academy, which shall--
Obama wants to cut our military spending by 25%, yet he wants to create a civilian community police. Probably trained in the Reeducation Camps...er...Peace Acadamy. What, pray tell, do we need a civilian community police when we already have the CIA, FBI, Secret Service, state and local police?
Since we are moving towards a dreaded super majority in the House and Senate, should we not attempt to buffer that with McCain instead of Obama? Or do we really want to give unchecked power to the Democrats, especially since the Democrats with the most power are also the Democrats who are the farthest left? Think about that people. Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Franks. Do we want these people to pick the next 2 or 3 Supreme Court Justices, unchallenged?
Example of socialism/redistribution of wealth:
"Yesterday on my way to lunch at Doe's, I passed one of the homeless guys in that area, with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money."
Once in the Doe's my waiter had on a "Obama 08" tee shirt.
When the bill came, I decided not to tip the waiter and explained to him while he had given me exceptional service, that his tee shirt made me feel he obviously believes in Senator Obama's plan to redistribute the wealth. I told him I was going to redistribute his tip to someone that I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside. He stood there in disbelief and angrily stormed away.
I went outside, gave the homeless guy $3 and told him to thank the waiter inside, as I had decided he could use the money more.
The homeless guy looked at me in disbelief but seemed grateful.
As I got in my car, I realized this rather unscientific redistribution experiment had left the homeless guy quite happy for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn.
Well, I guess this redistribution of wealth is going to take a while to catch on, with those doing the work."
Change you need. Yes we can. Words. Just words.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain....
Our future, post Nov 4 - Welcome to the USSA - United Socialist States of Amerika. With redistribution of wealth, once we are all equal, we will be equally poor. Check the history of socialism/redistribution. IT DOES NOT WORK. While Europe becomes more conservative and moves away from socialism/collectivism, the USA - that beacon of freedom and prosperity - moves left to socialism/collectivism. USA. USA. USA. USA.
