If your planning to Vote for Obama

If you are planning to Vote for Obama I have two things I want you to consider.

First is a little story. For the last couple of weeks it's been wheat harvest time here in Oklahoma. A very exciting time for the state, record rains, record crops and record prices has many farmers very excited. However a friend of mine(Susan) went up to Enid Ok to help her 74 year old father bring in his 400 acres. The Grandfather Worked very hard but eventually developed a lot of pain in his knee which swelled to the size of a grapefruit. So Susan called his doctor but the Doctor couldn't see him for at leat 30 days and he should go to the emergency room if he needed immediate care. so he passed on medical care for his swollen knee and kept working to bring in the harvest. You hear about this kind of thing in Russia, Canada or Britian with their poorly managed Gov't health care but never have I heard of this in America. When I asked how this could be she explained how he is on Medicare or Medicaid and that is very normal thing with this system. WOW, welcome to Obama's vision for America!!!

Finally, how much do you like Gov't interference in your life. Like what kind of clothes you were or what kind of food you like. If you think that Gov't interference in your life would make it more sucky then I suggest you check out how our good friends in the Democratic party are handling thier convention. All kinds of rules and controls around the food allowed to eat, and what kind of coth is used in give away bags and the list goes on and on and on and on and on and on.... Ask yourself, is that what you want for America and your life!!!

As the Democrats prepare for their National Convention in Denver, what do you think concerns them most? Party unity after a fractious primary season? Articulating Obama`s plan for fighting terror? Or, maybe dealing with the oil crisis without relying on windmills? No. No and no. Their big worries are fried foods, organic cotton and biodegradable utensils. In that order.

That`s right – instead of coming up with a blueprint for all this change we keep hearing about, they`re worried about whether the 15,000 fanny packs belonging to convention volunteers are made of organic cotton.

And herein likes the joys of being politically correct. Instead of focusing on improving the country, you become obsessed with improving your image. I mean – forget Iran. What about those goat-cheese won tons served to the delegates? Are they organic? Union made? Grown locally? And that caramel sauce better not have been trucked in from Canada. Think of the emissions! And I certainly hope that duck sauce came from a free range duck.

In the desire to create the greenest political convention ever, the Democrats expose the party`s two main weaknesses – no sense of proportion, and no order of priorities. The fact is, the number one concern in America is not tofu – it`s terror. It`s not compost, it`s caliphates. It`s not sauce, it`s security. For the Democrats, this green obsession is the new patriotism – because – unlike old patriotism you don`t need to love your country – you just need to hate anyone who lacks a Prius. It`s easy and it feels good – like a sensual massage. But without the happy ending.

And if you disagree with me, may your first born have a tail.
