One Reason Why I’m Voting Against Obama

"Generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties, says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you,but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf . . . because the civil rights movement became so court-focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change."
–  Barak Obama, 2001 interview on Chicago Public Radio WBEZ.FM

In his own words, he reveals his willful ignorance of the founding fathers intentions in writing the Constitution of the United States. Negative Liberties? What he saying is that it limits the “Liberties” the Government can take with YOUR rights, which are “inalienable”, meaning God given (sorry atheists, but that’s what it means).

What does he mean by “redistributive change”? Simply that he wants to take from those who have, to give to those who (in his opinion) don’t. In this case, he wants to initiate a new SOCIALIST society. He holds the Constitution in utmost contempt, and when he takes his oath-of-office will be lying under oath.

In the United States, the oath of office for the President of the United States is specified in the U.S. Constitution (Article II, Section 1):

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Do Americans Understand What Socialism Is?

From an article by Frank Salvato, on the Family Security Matters website.

Socialism, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary is defined as:

“Any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods; A system of society or group living in which there is no private property; A stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.”

So, what does this mean?

Socialism promotes increased government control over the private sector, both socially and in business. It is achieved by instituting a system that redistributes wealth in an effort to artificially equalize wealth in society, regardless of productivity. When a politician says – in no uncertain terms – that he believes it is a good thing to excessively taxing the productive only to redistribute those extracted taxes to the non-productive, exclusively for the sake of altering the social status of individuals, he possesses a Socialist ideology.

The belief that government has the authority to take a citizen’s earnings, no matter what the amount, to bestow it upon another citizen in a quest to socially engineer a more equitable society is squarely rooted in Socialist dogma. This belief is championed and possessed by Barack Obama and is proven beyond doubt in his statement to Samuel Wurzelbacher:

“It’s not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they’ve got a chance at success too. I think that when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everybody.”

Where They Stand (Barak Obama vs. John McCain)

In an article by the Tacoma Morning News Tribune (McClatchy Newspapers and the Associated Press) the standing on various issues including Defense, Veterans, Environment, Energy, Education, and Healthcare are compared. I did a little research, and some math, and come up with the following conservative figures based on the article.




Grow Military
(total x min mo. salary x 36 mo.)


"Climate Friendly" energy program
(per year)


Energy Tax Credit
($1000 x total families in US)


Improve Battery Technology Prize 


Universal Pre-Kindergarten (per year)


College Community Service Tax Credit
(4000 x total college students x 10%)


Universal Medical Program (per year)





As you can see, Obama’s list of spending would be $324.6 BILLION, vs. McCain’s $300 Million. We all know that Congress controls the budget, but you can bet with a Democrat majority in both House and Senate, and a Democrat President, you’re only seeing the beginning of another huge social (socialist) spending spree.
