A Patriot's Manifesto For This Election and After
Searchlight Crusade ^ | October 29, 2008 | Dan Melson

Posted on 10/29/2008 11:39:21 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The election is in a few days. While it has become plain to me that the reporting of the polls has been manipulated (along with everything else) by a media actively campaigning for Obama, the math apparently says that the amount of manipulation is not enough to flip the basic result: an Obama victory.

I would be very happy to be wrong about this, and enough people to make a difference could still change their mind, but I'm pretty much resigned to an Obama victory.

I'm still going to vote for McCain, and urge everyone I know to do the same no matter how hopeless it may seem to you.

I have seen too much evidence that Obama intends to lead this country into an economic, foreign relations, and Constitutional disaster of epic proportions.

I love this country.

Therefore, I am going to fight until the bitter end to save it.

I am going to the polls on Tuesday. I am going to vote for John McCain. I'm going to continue to urge all like minded voters to do so, no matter how hopeless the election may seem. That's the easy part. Who knows, we may still bring it off. In any case, by making the win as narrow as possible, it will reduce Obama's political mandate - and power to bring about dangerous change. If enough other people follow this path, we may even put enough spine into the Republican congressional leadership to stand up and make the best fight of it they can.

But if Obama wins, I am not threatening to leave the country. I am going to stay and hold that lying two-faced populist, totalitarian incompetent's feet to the fire to the limit of my ability to do so.

I am going to be scrupulously fair and give him credit for anything good he does.

I am not going to make up stuff about him. If what he has said he wants to do is what he does in fact do, the truth will be bad enough to convince anyone even vaguely rational. I won't need to make up chants like the deranged left has done for George Bush.

If the Big Lie works for the left, imagine what pure facts are going to do for the right and center.

I was too young to vote in 1976. But I remember that President Ford's leadership and plans were working, until he lost the election.

I remember all of what Jimmy Carter did. I lived through his hand-wringing about a "national malaise". The national malaise was of his causing.

Jimmy never tried to repeal half of the bill of rights, as Barack Obama has said (and voted!) to do. Specifically, the first, second, fifth, sixth, eighth, ninth, and tenth amendments are in danger of becoming dead letters if Barack Obama wins, and any pretense of the judiciary being neutral arbiters of the law. For that matter, the thirteenth amendment is in danger (the conscript national service corps he wants to establish). If Whoopi Goldberg is worried about being a slave, she should maybe vote against the man who has said he wants to do something that violates the thirteenth amendment, instead of for him because he indirectly shares some genetic heritage with the group who were slaves. If you're worried about a draft, maybe you should vote for the man who believes in the all-volunteer military (John McCain), instead of the man who has said he wants to draft people - just not for the military.

Most importantly, Barack Obama has convinced me that he wants to give our most productive citizens and corporations as much reason to leave take their dollars, their jobs, their investments, and most importantly, their innovative energies out of our country and into others as he can. I want to keep these folks around, in this country, so I will raise the biggest voice I can in their defense.

I remember how Ronald Reagan turned us around. I'm looking around, and I just don't see such a figure in national politics today, and what Barack Obama wants to do will bar most of the avenues he had to make his case, get elected, and enact his agenda. So I'm going to stay, and I'm going to make as much of a fight of it as I can, no matter what anyone else does.

Barack Obama is no man on a white horse. He is a trojan horse. I'm fully aware of what happened to Laocoon, but I must stand up and speak the truth as I see it. I love this country too much to stand by, no matter the cost.

I hope he is wrong concerning the election results.

My daughter and her family have applied for passports so they can leave the country ifit starts getting weird.

She asked me about coming too. I said I had to stay and defend my country no matter what the cost. I have deep concerns about O’s national police force and what will happen to those who cannot be reeducated. I be one!

Just because 0bama loses doesn’t mean the battle is over.
I will stand and fight for the liberty and freedom of this country, just as Patriots did on foreign soil.

They will never do that for a Republican. To do so for them just strengthens their position, their hold on political power and further legitimizes them after an illegitimate stolen election. Don't fall for the "we're better than them and we'll be nice and fair" routine. Good guys finish last - things are turned upside down. Now is the time to be just as vicious as they are. If they get control of the courts, the military and the three-letter agencies - all is lost. Other than that, I agree with your points.

I for one will give him credit for nothing. This is a dark day in our republic.

Yes, you are correct. That should be directed towards the original author.

Regards in solidarity.

Barack Obama is no man on a white horse.

He comes pretty close, and what will follow also comes pretty close. Check it out:

1st False Christ ("The One We Have Been Waiting For"): And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.Revelation 6:2

2nd, what follows next, terrorist attacks here and war all over: And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.Revelation 6:4

3rd and close behind, economic ruin, Obamastan's centerpiece: And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; Revelation 6:5-6

4th, there are no words...And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. Revelation 6:8

I am staying! My country, my family my friends. Christ didn’t run away from tyranny and neither will I.

That is a great John Paul Jones quote. I was raised in Portsmouth, NH. His house is awsome to visit!

Even if Obama loses, he’ll be back (or Hillary) in four years with new scary stories and blaming the economy on McCain/Palin. You can bet Nancy Nitwit P. will still be around, making noise and acting stupid. Along with the B. Franks and Kennedy’s. They will still try to make more of mess than the Bailout because power is all to these animals.

Word! I’ve been saying that for while. Either we start playing dirty, and I mean really really dirty, or we will die eventually. The Left is like a virus, it has no morals. They will lie, steal, cheat, kill, do any illegal underhanded thing to gain power, because they don’t believe in the US or its laws or its Constitution. They want to burn it all anyway. Just listen to the video of Ayers Weather Underground associate.
