I have been puzzled to the point of complete befuddlement over everyone's love of Barack Obama. To me, it's a no-brainer. I'm shocked that Democrats support him and that he ever made it out of the primaries. I personally thought Hillary Clinton was a lock.
What intrigues me is that Barack is as far left as you can get without being Vladimir Putin. Now that I think about it, maybe he and Vlad were twins separated at birth. But, I digress.
I think that Americans, and I'm talking the "Dancing With The Stars" zombie Americans, have no clue what socialism is, why it's bad, and that Barack Obama is one. Let's face it. Do our public schools teach this? I started pondering when it was that I learned about socialism, and though I can't say for sure, I'm pretty convinced it wasn't until I became an adult and researched it for myself. Thanks to our government schools (there goes the government milling around where they don't belong and making a big mess as usual) we have at least one but maybe even two generations so far that are dumb as dirt. And, I say that with the utmost respect.
Are The Federalist Papers required reading in schools? Do schools teach the Constitution? Do schools even teach what the Constitution is? Do children learn to understand, appreciate, and value the sacrifices made for our freedoms?
I think by the 'Obama Mania' the answers must be no. And, would someone please explain to me why all of Hollywood has embraced this man? If he has his way (and he will because Congress will be his lap dog) those Hollywood millionaires will be pouring all of their millions into entitlement programs for 'those less fortunate'. I wouldn't think they would like that. Now granted, just because they reside in Hollywood doesn't make them smart, literate, thinking people. Quite the contrary if you ask me. But, all of them? None of them get it? The majority of Americans don't get it? When it's so obvious?
Here's what those who are ambiguous need to do. First read the Constitution. Then read The Federalist Papers. Then read The Road to Serfdom by F. A. Hayek. Then listen to this...
Then come back and explain to me how Barack Obama is going to be a good thing for our country.
Oprah? Matt Damon? Colin Powell? Anyone?
