Who is Barack Obama?
A man is known by his record and the company he keeps. To me, he has failed on both accounts. I think once the tidal wave of "I want change" has swept over them and they really look at this man - this is what they will see of his record....

- 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 minimum wage affair.
-Admitted marijuana and cocaine use in high school and in college.
- His religious convictions are very murky.
-He is willing to meet with Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Kim Jung Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. (ha, ha - I say go ahead).
- 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 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 repeatedly 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.

If your political choices are consistent with Barack Obama's and you think that his positions will bring America together or make it a better place, then you will probably not care about any of this. If you are like most Americans that after examining what he stands for, are truly not in line with his record, it would be prudent to get off the wave or better yet, never get on, before it comes on shore and undermines the very foundations of this great Country. We have limited time to save America or the Supreme Court as we know it.

I agree with you. When I posted my thoughts on Obama the Obama bots descended on my blog and called me racist. They weren't quite as bad as the anti-adoption folks, but still.

BTW, I just posted about how we are doing in the adoption process. I would appreciate your input.
