Before I begin, I want to be up front about the fact that I did not come up with this comparison on my own, but I want to try to share it with you in my own words.

First, a few questions:

  1. Do you believe that slavery is OK?
  2. Would you ever consider voting for a candidate who did believe that slavery was OK, whether or not he or she could actually bring it back as a source of labor in this country, if that candidate also proposed and could provide  an amazing healthcare plan, an amazing tax plan, or an abundance of new jobs?  Why or why not?
  3. Would you be willing to have a better health plan, pay lower taxes, or have a better job if it meant that certain other people would have to become slaves?
  4. Do you believe that life begins at conception?
  5. Do you believe that abortion is OK?
  6. Would you ever consider voting for a candidate who did believe that abortion was OK, knowing that he or she could definitely eliminate all restrictions on abortions, if that candidate also proposed and could provide an amazing healthcare plan, an amazing tax plan, or an abundance of new jobs?  Why or why not?
  7. Would you be willing to have a better health plan, pay lower taxes, or have a better job if it meant that even more babies were going to be exposed to abortion procedures, including now-forbidden partial birth abortions?

Now, I don’t know for sure how you answered these questions, but my guess is that MOST people would absolutely be appalled at the idea of any candidate who approves of slavery and would want to bring it back.  Well, there are plenty of people out there (and you might be one of them) who believe that abortion is wrong but are willing to vote for a candidate proposing to overturn all restrictions on abortion because they have decided they will not be one-issue voters.  They generally approve of his stance on the other issues and are willing to overlook the abortion issue.

If you believe that life begins at conception, there can be no greater issue for you.  We are talking about human life here … more specifically, the termination of human life on a grand scale.  Murder, to put it more bluntly.  At least that’s what it is if you really believe life begins at conception.

I used to be one of those voters who decided that if the abortion issue was the only problem I had with a candidate, maybe I wasn’t being fair by not considering all of the other issues at hand in the election.

I can’t view it like that any longer.  I could never approve of slavery, and I, most certainly, could never approve of abortion.  And Barack Obama has said that the very first thing he’ll do upon taking office is to pass the Freedom of Choice Act.  This would effectively remove all restrictions on abortions … even the graphically violent partial-birth abortions.

Now, I’m not going to pretend that I think Obama’s ideas on the rest of the issues are correct.  I don’t think they are, and I think he is wrong on just about everything.  But I know many of you do believe he is right on many things.  That is fair.  But I REALLY want you to consider this ONE issue—the issue of life—and I want you to consider whether you can vote for a person whose moral conscience does not tell him that abortion is wrong … that the taking of a human life is wrong.

Please.  Consider it.

I know many people don’t care whether or not our president is a Christian, so I’m not trying to convince anyone that we shouldn’t elect Obama because he isn’t a Christian.  But, for as many people that don’t care whether Obama is a Christian, there are many who do care, and I think it is only fair that they understand how badly they are being deceived.  Obama claims to be a Christian.  He claims to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  But what are his actual beliefs beyond that?  In an article titled Obama: Never a Christian, World Net Daily founder Joseph Farrah writes about how Obama’s own words condemn him.  Farrah writes:

Asked what he believes, Obama said: “I am a Christian. I’m rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people. That there are values that transcend race or culture, that move us forward, and there’s an obligation for all of us individually as well as collectively to take responsibility to make those values lived.”

So how many paths to the same place does he think there are?  Did he learn this from Jesus?  I don’t think he did.  Obama clearly doesn’t know what it means to be a Christian.  He also has said that he doesn’t know if he is going to heaven, nor does he he believe that hell is the alternative to following Jesus.  Regarding Obama’s prayer life, Farrah writes:

Obama says he prays regularly. But look how he describes that process: “It’s not formal, me getting on my knees. I think I have an ongoing conversation with God. … I’m constantly asking myself questions about what I’m doing, why I am doing it. The biggest challenge, I think, is always maintaining your moral compass.”

So whom is he talking to in these conversations? He’s talking to himself! He’s talking to his under-developed conscience – the one that told him it was the right thing to do to prevent doctors and nurses from offering life-saving support to babies born alive after botched abortions.

Again, I know that not everybody cares about whether the president is a Christian.  But what people should care about is the way Obama is misrepresenting himself.  He says he’s a Christian, but we see that he doesn’t really know what it means to be a Christian.  He says he isn’t a socialist, yet he is very open about “spreading the wealth” and creating massive government-run entitlement programs.  He says he was never hired by ACORN as a community organizer, which is true, but he was invited to work with them and then trained people for them for almost ten years (not to mention he represented them as their lawyer).  He says he has never been close to William Ayers, but they have served on two boards together—the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, which failed in their effort to distribute money to improve Chicago schools, and the Woods Fund, which distributed grant money to ACORN.  Obama also launched his political career in Ayers’ home.  And there is some speculation that Ayers basically wrote (or, at least, rewrote) Obama’s book, Dreams of My Father.

But, I digress.

Obama will say anything he has to say to win this election.  It isn’t about truth.  It isn’t about substance.  It’s about a political grab for power.  And if Obama has lied about so many things already, what else might there be which he is lying about and/or will lie about in the future, heaven forbid, as our president?

I’ve wanted to write some more over the last few days, but I haven’t really been able to bring myself to do it because I have, more or less, been a bit down due to the way the election seems to be shaping up.  I’m still not a McCain fan, but my abhorrence for the liberal and socialist views of the Obama campaign has continued to grow.  I would rather McCain be president than Obama.  But I’m also irritated by McCain’s apparent unwillingness to stick it to Obama on the things that really matter.  Instead, during a town hall meeting in which many of his supporters were angry with him for not strongly going after Obama, he just told them that Obama was a good man and that they didn’t have anything to be afraid of with him as president.  That sounds like the words of a man who has all but given up.  I haven’t yet had a chance to watch the debate tonight (it’s on DVR), but I hope he proves me wrong.

So, all of that said, there are things I’ve wanted to write about, but I just haven’t had it in me to do so.  So, for now, these few things I’d like to share with you will have to suffice:

  • Just in case anyone is still in doubt regarding whether Obama really is a socialist, read this: Obama’s Socialist Agenda—Is Anyone Listening?
  • Just in case anyone still thinks Joe Biden actually  does know what he is talking about, see here how he doesn’t even know the responsibilities of the vice-president (and read all of the other factual mistakes he has made): Did Biden Get It Wrong?  You Betcha
  • Socialism explained so that just about anybody can understand it (substitute “conservative” for “Republican” in the story since Republicans don’t have the best track record anymore either): Father and daughter talk politics
  • The income tax system explained so that just about anybody can understand it (and an explanation that shows why we need a fairer tax system): Income Tax Explained
  • These are the people canceling out your votes:
  • Just in case you were wondering who the Messiah is, Louis Farrakhan can fill you in:
  • Brainwashing much?  (the beginning to this video is a little silly, but the part with the militant kids dedicated to Obama is a little scary and sad):
