Think before you vote  

Posted by Linda Keilbart Scanlan in , ,

Just remember that we ALL started out as "dumb kids". Dad didn't mean that you were a dummy, not smart, just a kid, and kids are mostly dumb, not because they lack smarts, just don't know how the world works. We all had crazy ideas about how things "should" be, and that, if given the chance, we would show the rest of the world how things should be done.

Anyway, I am not a lemming, I don't forward emails, or listen to a narrow spectrum of points of view. I listen to everyone who speaks, I research (i.e. read a lot) the topic, and decide for myself whom I will believe. Based on my understanding of where you stand, from the things you have said, I am curious to know where you are getting the information upon which you are basing your beliefs?

As an individual, are you not at all affected by the history of your own upbringing? Don't most of us, at least to a certain degree, have a foundation which is based upon the things we were taught as children? If that is true, to any extent, doesn't it, then, seem plausible that Senator Obama might have some fairly anti-American tendencies? Have you read anything from his own books?

Have you studied real Muslim theology? Or talked to any devout Muslims? I have. I have researched William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and read up on some of the not so above board financial dealings in which Sen. Obama was involved in back in Chicago.

If you spend some time tracking an animal through the wild, you can learn a lot about that particular animal, and also about the species. The same is true about a person. If you, as a police officer, were trying to find out about a person, what he was about, wouldn't you look at his known associates, places he frequented, investigate his dealings? If you really do that with Sen. Obama, you MUST see that the man has, at the very least, a cloudy past.

Even if you put all that aside, and just look at what he has done since becoming a Senator, don't you think that the guy needs more of a track record before we put him in the chair of the most powerful office in the world? Leave all the discussion about non-votes, bad votes, and everything else out of it and look at it as though you were hiring this man to run your company while you are away for 4 years. Totally on his own, without your input, do you actually believe that he has the qualifications, the experience, the track record, for you to be able to trust him implicitly with your baby?

See, I don't believe that he does. Oh, he talks a good days work, but I don't see where he has done very many of them. This is terribly important, because we, as a country, are at a critical crossroad in our history. There has been so much damage done, by everyone who has sat in that office over the last 20 years, that it might well come down to just the next two years. If we don't make the right moves, every step of the way, there may not be a United States of America anymore.

I am not being overly dramatic here. The world owns more of us than we own ourselves, and the time is fast approaching when the notes will be called due. The amount of leverage against us in the financial world, among countries who do not care if we go under, is monumental. This is very likely the equivalent to "the straw that broke the camel's back".

We need strength, courage, experience and wisdom, along with a powerful military, to survive against the forces who are gathering against us. We need a military man, willing to sacrifice his all for this country, as we go forward into these most difficult of times.

A moderate won't do. A "world citizen" would be disastrous. We need an American, tried and true, to take care of OUR people, OUR country, first and foremost.


And to add to this, Senator Fred Thompson has released this video in conjunction with the RNC:

It is time for the American people to rise up and we must do so on November 4th. We will not stoop to the level of jihadists, dictators and more. We will do as Americans have done since this country was founded, every American who loves this nation as Reagan's "shining city on a hill", who believes in democracy and decries socialism and communism, who believes in the American dream, who understand that only in America can true hope be found . . . these are the Americans who must rise up, by the millions, and make their voices heard on November 4th.

Barack Hussein Obama will destroy America. He is violently anti-Semitic. He has, despite his words, immersed himself in black liberation theology, surrounded himself with terrorists and others who hate America . . . Obama's actions scream while his platitudes to the American people are nothing more than the pathetic mewing of a kitten who unsheathed his claws and found himself facing a tiger.

Enough is enough. This is my America. This is the America of patriots who have fought, bled and died to preserve democracy . . . not socialism, not communism. This is the America where we can educate ourselves, work hard, persevere and win. This is the America where we families can dream for their children and put plans into place to achieve those dreams. This is America, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

As you leave my blog today, please take with you the words of Francis Scott Key:

The Star-Spangled Banner

O! say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming.
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: 'In God is our trust.'
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

"On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep, Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes," is where we stand today. Jihadists at our shores, enemies from within . . . Americans who have been taught bold faced lies about America, believing must to the horror and soul deep pain of those who sacrificed for them, that this great nation is a racist and terrorist nation. We must shed this willful blindness which has gripped the nation and tell Barack Obama once and for all, your America is not our America.

This is my America. She is great. She is good. She is a vehicle for good and always will be. We will bow to no one. We will not become Europe. We will not become a Muslim nation, for we are a nation founded on Judeo-Christian principles, as much as people might want to deny this. We are a nation of god-fearing Christians who live side-by-side with each other, regardless of religion. or lack thereof. We are a nation of imperfections, but we see them and we try to rectify them.

We DO NOT throw democracy away! We DO NOT associate with terrorists! We DO NOT accept anti-Semitism or bias in any way. We DO NOT accept others' view of America. This is our America, we must take her back from the gnarly clutches of those grasping to rob us of our freedoms and destroy our Constitution.

Speak up. Be heard. On November 4th, cast your vote for McCain/Palin . . . for he has fought for America in every possible way and she has taken on corruption and won. They love America, Barack Obama does not. McCain/Palin are the hope of the nation at this time. If we wish to have an America in 2012, you must not vote for Barack Obama, he will destroy us and he will not be shy or slow about it.

Note: If you love Sarah Palin, her policies, her stances and her love of America then join me on Team Sarah where those who love America as I do energize and support one another in our goal to take America back from those who hate her or find the Constitution wholly inadequate because it didn't, as Barack Obama put it in 2001, "go far enough on the redistribution of wealth."
