The Obama Tidal Wave

Just an e-mail I received. Thought some might find it interesting. You be the judge.


The Obama Tidal Wave

We are witnessing a political phenomenon of rare magnitude with Barack Obama. His speeches have inspired millions and yet most of his followers have no idea of what he stands for except platitudes of 'Change' or that he says he will be a 'Uniter'.

The power of speech from a charismatic person truly can be a powerful thing. Certainly Billy Graham had charisma and both his manner of speech and particularly the content changed millions. On the extreme other hand, the charisma of Adolph Hitler inspired millions and the results were catastrophic.

Barack Obama certainly is no Hitler or a Billy Graham, but for many Americans out there, feeling just like a surfer who might be ecstatic and euphoric while riding a tidal wave, the real story is what happens when it hits shore.

Just Some of What Defines Barack Obama:

. He voted against banning partial birth abortion.

. He voted no on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions.

. Supports affirmative action in Colleges and Government.

. In 2001 he questioned harsh penalties for drug dealing.

. Says he will deal with street level drug dealing as a minimum wage affair.

. Admitted marijuana and cocaine use in high school and in college.

. His religious convictions are very murk y.

. He is willing to meet with Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Kim Jung Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

. Has said that one of his first goals after being elected would be to have a conference with all Muslim nations.

. Opposed the Patriot Act.

. First bill he signed that was passed was campaign finance reform.

. Voted No on prohibiting law suits against gun manufacturers.

. Supports universal health-care.

. Voted yes on providing habeas corpus for Guantanamo detainees.

. Supports granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.

. Supports extending welfare to illegal immigrants.

. Voted NO to making English the official languag e of the USA.

. Voted yes on comprehensive immigration reform.

. Voted yes on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security.

. Wants to make the minimum wage a 'living wage'.

. Voted with Democratic Party 96 percent of 251 votes.

. Is a big believer in the separation of church and state.

. Opposed to any efforts to Privatize Social Security and instead supports increasing the amount of tax paid.

. He voted No on repealing the Alternative Minimum Tax.

. He voted No on repealing the 'Death' Tax

. He wants to raise the Capital Gains Tax.

. Has r epeatedly said the Surge in Iraq has not succeeded.

. He is ranked as the most liberal Senator in the Senate today and that takes some doing.

    I agree with most of what you said about Obama, but after getting an $18,000 bill for getting my appendix out, I think universal health care is a good thing. I know of too many people who have lost everything later in life because of health care costs. My wife and I have had excellent 'free' medical care abroad by competent doc's.

    Charisma is the biggest thing he has going for him. Hopefully that isn't all he'll need.

    Many here aren't going to like to hear this, but I'd describe myself as a conservative liberal. I'm leaning towards Obama--- just for the record I HATE the Liberal stance on gun control and I am a member of the NRA. But I do happen to agree with much of his views and I'd like to get someone with some inteligence into the white house and NOT HILARY.
    I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".
    -- Well, at least I try --

    I'm not a Democrat so I wouldn't be voting for him anyway,but if I were the thought of painting a broom on the side of Air Force One might just influence my vote!
