“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” CS Lewis

It’s nice to see that a theocracy is suddenly a bad thing.

Has the level of ignorant and gullible voters reached critical mass in America?

Mitt and Huck get slammed for believing in God.

B. Hussein Obama on the other hand thinks he is God.

If I feel my soul needs saving, the very last place I'd look (in the US) for a savior would be Washington DC or Capitol Hill. I'll trust God and Jesus Christ with my soul, and I'm not going to mistake Barack Obama for either one.

This is cynical, my dear Captain, very cynical. Obama will help us to overcome cynicism and to start trusting Obama. Hope and Change, my man!

It’s getting creepy with this talk of saving souls from the Obama campaign. I was going to say “a little creepy” but it is not — it’s very creepy. I think that you’ll get a good read on the nature of your acquantences and coworkers and neighbors relationship with God, whether extant or latent, by watching how they react to this cult of Obama. If they get chills and thigh thrills and start talking about Obama being the “New Testament” you’ll know where they are coming from. Not a good place to be when a political figure is your hope for a messiah.

Michelle Obama may be capable of doing more harm to this campaign than the Clintons.

"Americans are not in debt because they live frivolously but because someone got sick. Even with insurance, the deductibles and the premiums are so high that people are still putting medications and treatments on credit cards. And they can't get out from under. I could go on and on, but this is how we're living, people, in 2008."

Sounds like Oprah-speak to me. Many more Americans are in debt from buying junk they don't need than from "putting medications and treatments on credit cards" and you & I (and Mrs. Obama) know that! We don't want to wait and save for that big screen television, that mega barbeque grill, those expensive shoes, the stainless steel kitchen, etc. I do home loans as my main gig, and I see how people get into debt, and believe me, it's not usually medical bills!

Anyone have the pic of the Katrina victim (sic) and her ½ acre plasma display.

As I mentioned long ago on another thread: We do not know the meaning of Obama's "change." That is a dangerous thing. Some could be voluntarily walking blindly into, and voting for, the death of the U.S. via Islam.

Obama is NOT the guy we want in charge. Anyone who refuses to vote this year, or votes for a losing candidate, because John McCain isn't conservative enough...a portion of the blame will lie at your feet. (do you hear me, Ann?)

IMO, the Obama is being vague for evil intent.

It gets even scarier. You can hear the whole Michelle Obama tirade over at hughhewitt.com

http://hughhewitt.townhall.com/MediaPlayer/AudioPlayer.aspx?ContentGuid=9e3a08aa-ad84-46cf-8492-6aff289bca42

I copied some of the most notorious parts:

“If we can’t see ourselves in one another, we will never make those sacrifices. So I am here right now because I am married to the only person in this race who has a chance of healing this nation!

Barack, as Oprah said, is one of the most brilliant men you’ll meet in our lifetime.
Barack is more than ready, he’ll be ready on Day One, he’ll be ready in a year from now, five years from now, he’ll be ready! The question is, what are we ready for?

We say we’re ready for change, but you see, change is hard! Change will always be hard....Barack Obama will require you to work (for change). He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism, that you put down your division, that you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone, that you push yourself to be better, and that you engage!

Barack will NEVER allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed!

We have a chance not just to change history, but to change the world! We can change the world, yes we can! Yes, we can! Yes, we can! Yes, we can!!!"

(As this point, the crowd erupts with a chorus of, “Yes, we can!!!” over and over again.)

We look at it as "them" and "they" as opposed to "us".

I don't see color any more, only politics, and on that front, it is definitely still "us" and "them". I don't engage because "they're" CRAZY, and I mean literally crazy, dangerously crazy. Check out the posts elsewhere on this forum regarding the protests in Berkeley over the Marine recruiting flap. Now imagine if those same people ever get the total power over us they want, AND take away our guns. Be afraid, be very afraid.

And things have gotten progressively worse because of progressives throughout my lifetime

I corrected Mrs. Obama's speech to reflect the reality of her lifetime.

this is EXACTLY why Obama is the worst possible candidate.

Perhaps she merely alludes to a core concept found in all religions:

Or perhaps she subscribes to Chesterson’s observation:

“The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected.”

The fools that can’t wait to attack Obama until after he wins the nomination will gives us President Hellary. Why point out his flaws before the RATS are stuck with him?
