I hate politics. I hate talking about politics. I hate that people hate each other over politics. We have family members that I love dearly who avoid us during election months because of our faith and political beliefs. It breaks my heart. It is awful that the real issues are often completely danced around by candidates and we only hear what they WANT us to hear – to keep the 2-party political beast fed. I hate the system we have in place in this country to elect presidents. I think it should be illegal for companies to lobby congress. I hate that people can’t be expected to just be good people and live and let live. I hate it that there is crime and that people take advantage of other people. I think whether ‘blue’ or ‘red’, we can ALL agree on the above!
In a world that was perfect, there wouldn’t be “issues” to discuss. Unfortunately, we don’t live in that world and likely never will this side of reality. There is no human utopia. The last time someone tried to make one, Adolf Hitler was the party leader. We all know how that one turned out.
So, in honor of remembering our not so distant brush with human atrocity … and an honest understanding of just how quickly freedom can be eroded… and with a healthy dose of fear for the future that my children will be faced with… I bring you a final warning before voting day. I know that I normally don’t talk about politics on this site and I apologize for the frank tone. I would rather blog about anything – including PMS and trips to the hospital to get a catheter – than politics. I am only talking about this today because my conscience will not allow me to remain silent. I’ll talk issues, people. I am not afraid of issues. I think politicians should be FLAT OUT HONEST AND FRANK. Who cares who you offend? Just be truthful. Let the people decide.
I figured that I would voice my opposition to Obama one last time because:
I don’t want my preschool child that is being born next Spring to have to go to school at age 2 or 3.
I don’t want my 11 year old son to be forced to join the military at age 15.
I don’t want the government to take away my right to homeschool (we’ve already seen what liberal judges can do to homeschooling in California this year – it was a very scary moment for an entire state).
I want to parent my kids the way I see fit; not the way the STATE sees fit.
I believe people should have the right to own a gun.
I don’t want to go to jail for opposing Obama policy.
These are really scary times, people. I’ve never seen a worse candidate for presidency come this close to winning. And it seems that at least half of the nation is in complete and utter darkness – ignorant of his policy and hypnotized by his fluff. McCain looks like the candy man compared to this guy. Socialism or not – the stuff Obama wants to pass through is going to drastically change parental rights in this country…. and citizens’ rights in general. He is definitely for change. Very, very scary changes.
Obama wants to force Americans in to U.N. treaties.
I for one do NOT want to be holding a hand over my chest pledging to be one world government under the United Nations. If the UN has control, there will be no homeschooling. If you know anything about the case in Germany, the UN treaty is what was used to seal the fate of many homeschool families – send them to jail, take their children away, etc. Obama’s views may not be totally clear right now because his campaign has danced around the issue. He was questioned about homeschooling twice and denied to answer – skirting the discussion with educational rhetoric. I have heard the argument that his books states he’s OK with homeschoolers. How can you be so sure that a tiny quote in his book about honoring choice is how he will really work when he’s not courting voters any more? Here’s Spunky’s article which asks the same question.
Here is a recent email I just got… read it and try not to weep (especially if you are a homeschooling mother):
Obama OPPOSES homeschooling.
Don’t believe me? Check this voting chart out – look specifically under “School Choice“.
This is also a reflection of his feelings on PARENTAL RIGHTS!
Obama is pro-United Nations and will put into action the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. This horrible document (the same one that was used to convict German Homeschoolers and take their children away) gives “The State” the right to come into homes, evaluate it, and remove children if *they* deem necessary!!! It also lists the age of children going into the military at 15 years of age! Here is a link to the document — read it in its entirety!!! Read it very, very carefully!!!!
And let’s not forget the ABC Bill that makes it mandatory to send 2 and 3 year olds to public school!!!
Past Democratic Presidents were not able to inforce the above, BUT Obama + ultra liberal Democrats incharge of Congress + the ultra liberal judges Obama will appoint = Americans’ rights taken away; especially PARENTS!!!
Hopefully in a few weeks we won’t begin to become “WE THE PRISONERS” of the “HELPLESS STATES OF AMERICA” due to the Harlequin House of Representatives and the Socialist Senate… with Obama leading us all off a cliff.
I have this sick feeling in my stomach. Which is really sad since I would rather be joyous over the birth of our new child this spring. I would rather be enjoying the fall weather and looking forward to Thanksgiving coming up (my favorite holiday). It almost seems like I’m in a nightmare that I can’t wake up from. Everywhere are reminders – bumper stickers, radio, emails, TV, billboards, conversation… Every time I think of election day, the hair on my neck stands up. Maybe they should move elections to October 31st this year. It would seem more fitting a date.
