Beyond the Palin

“I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts.” — Socrates

This new approach by the McDesperate campaign is completely wrong. It is not just about the campaign, it is about endangering someone else’s life. What kind of President would McCain make if he is willing to encourage blatant xenophobia, giving a socially acceptable face to racism. Stirring up this kind of hate in the fringe lunatics is dangerous. It does not help McCain’s campaign but it does put Barack Obama in harm’s way.

We have had some twenty years of fear shoved down our throats. ENOUGH!

Obama is NOT a terrorist.
Obama is NOT a Muslim.
Obama is NOT an elitist.
Obama is NOT going to raise anyone’s taxes.
Obama is NOT pretending to be something he is not.

Stop with the lies. You are the terrorist, John McCain. You invoke terror in the ignorant and the frightened, you try to get others to believe Obama is palling around with a terrorist. This is simply not true. He is not a threat to our country or to the citizens.

Shame on you John McCain for inciting fear and hate. It is simply NOT acceptable.

This is one more way you demonstrate how you are not prepared to be President. You can’t even run a political campaign that is different than the last two. Act responsibly. What kind of Senator puts a fellow Senator in harm’s way? Not the kind we need in Washington.

You should stop asking, “Who is Barack Obama?” and start asking who you want to be… you are a bit old to be struggling like you are with identity issues. You have changed your stance on almost every issue during this campaign and now when we are headed straight for a depression, and you are losing, so you are milking the xenophobia surrounding Obama but you not stopping there. You are filling the minds of hate-mongers with rhetoric and encouraging them to get more riled up. These people are dangerous. Why would you allow a crowd that you stand before to scream obscenities and ridiculous but harmful lies and not say SOMETHING? Do you hope someone will kill Obama? Is that your plan? Is that your campaign strategy? Is that your hope? If not, then stop inciting so much anger and hate towards him. You are trying to win an election, I hope not trying to get someone killed.

Who are YOU, John Sidney McCain? A spineless, corrupt Corporatist willing to say anything and do anything to become President, even if it means getting another Senator killed? The man who pushed for deregulation and now is full of empty rhetoric about regulation? The man wanting to help out corporations and banks while taxing the American people? The man who didn’t utter change until it worked for Obama in the polls? The man who talks about supporting veterans but hasn’t?

Who is Barack “Hussein” Obama? Watch for yourself…

Barack is a man with a strange name…so what!? Barack is more like you and me then John McCain will ever be. Do not allow these scare-tactics to immobilize your common sense, please.

Stop for a moment and breathe. Listen to the quiet voice of reason. Watch the video, let go of the ridiculous rhetoric on the five o’clock news. Obama wants to help make this country what it once was, to restore the balance of wealth and power to the majority of people. Obama wants to help us get out of the recession and live a better quality life. He wants to help us live the American dream. McCain wants to be President and wants to help the Corporations. We can help business by helping ourselves first.

Liberty

“Like bones to the human body, the axle to the wheel, the wing to the bird, and the air to the wing, so is liberty the essence of life. Whatever is done without it is imperfect.”
