We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I answer a Polling Point poll asking if Obama was ready to be President. Here was my answer.
In short, Obama is a person of no substance, no character and no hope. Here are a few specifics. He (i) has an unrealistic view of the condition of mankind, (ii) has no executive experience, (iii) is a socialist who believes government is the solution to all problems, (iv) will pursue policies that redistribute wealth and further weaken the free market roots that made America great, (v) has demonstrated indecisiveness with his approximately 130 votes of present in the state legislature, (vi) is willing to negotiate with the likes of Iran without preconditions showing he is a foreign policy neophyte, (vii) has demonstrated no moral compass with his support of partial birth abortion which I define as murder, (viii) has demonstrated an inability to judge the character of others given his association with the like of Wright, Ayers, Rezko and others, (ix) believes that only the elite, like himself, should decide what is right for individual Americans, (x) chose Joe Biden to be his running mate and America has already voted in previous primaries and told Joe he is not fit to be President, (xi) has changed his position on so many issues that one can only conclude he has no core principles, (xii) is arrogant and has disdain for the people he purports to care about, which is reflected in his disparaging comment about people "clinging to their guns and religion", (xiii) is unable to think on his feet and constantly stumbles unless reading a grand speech from a teleprompter, (xiv) was endorsed by the Communist Party of the USA, (xv) has the support of the Russians and Europeans who want to see him elected, and, given their political, social and economic problems, who would want to emulate those countries, and (xvi) (Do I have to continue? I'm getting tired and have other things to do!)
The left will never listen to the conservative rabble as the article points out.
