Well, the election is over, and the American public has spoken. Barrack Obama has been elected the 44th president of the United States of America. People wanted change, but do they really know what they are getting? Do we really know anything about Barrack Obama? Do Americans care anything about his past? We need change, but can Barrack change?

I have always said it would be travesty if people didn't vote for Barrack Obama based on his skin color, and even the NAACP and every other equal rights organization out there would agree. So how is it possible

that 96% of African-Americans voted for Obama as opposed to 56% of white people? I tried to like the Obama. Like every other responsible voter, I researched his past affiliations, votes, ideals. Obama has a history of being underhanded, and not telling the truth. I asked several people that I know who wanted to vote for Obama, why they were choosing him. Their reply, they wanted change. "Well what kind of change, what is he going to change?" I would ask. Their reply is that he was going fix the last 8 years of Republican screw ups. I would then ask," What have the Republicans screwed up for the past eight years?" The replies, "the war in Iraq, "the economy", and the latest (I had to Laugh) "the 700 billion dollar Wall Street bail out".

What it boils down to is the American public was duped by Democratic Party. Barney Frank and the other Democrats don't want to take their share of the blame for the economic meltdown. This has been coming for years, and Bush just happened to be the stooge in office when it happened. Basic financial principals that even a 3rd grader can understand, when you loan money to someone who can not afford to pay you back, don't be surprised when you don't get paid back. One thing that President Elect Obama failed to tell the American people was that he was the attorney for ACORN when they decided to sue the lending industry because not enough funds were available for poor people. Thus Sub-Prime lending was born. One of the main factors in our economic meltdown. The Republicans fought to regulate Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac, but the Democrats failed to see that there was a problem, maybe because their pockets were getting lined. Proof, look at Obama's economic adviser.

Barack Obama is a very eloquent speaker. He has told the American people what they want to here, but can you read between the lines. John McCain was right when he told the American people during a debate, that you have to listen to what Obama says very closely. People that do not have health insurance will be able to choose the same health plans as those in congress. Wow, that is a great deal, but what he didn't tell you was the government paid part of his premiums, I don't think they are going pay yours. If they do, where is the money coming from? 95% of you are getting tax breaks. And the other 5% are paying for everything else, they can't afford it anymore. After their wealth has been redistributed, they are now lower middle class. This is just one program. Imagine when the Democrats start adding all of their programs. Tax and spend, it is the Democratic way, it always has been. The American people rejected the notion of fiscal responsibility, yet they demand the government regulate everything. Well, except for when it invades YOUR privacy.

I loved the news media that was so willing to jump on the Obama band wagon. They alone should be tried for treason against the American people. Americans rely on the media for fair and truthful information. I found more truthful information on my own than the media was able to uncover. When I was growing up, the media was impartial. How can a newspaper be believed when they are endorsing a candidate? How can they be unbiased? The minute they endorse a candidate, they can no longer be trusted. We saw the Obama camp dealt with media that asked them difficult questions or endorsed the other candidate, one will no longer get any interviews, and 3 were kicked off of the plane. We have 4 years of this media censorship to look forward to. Who is going to stop them? Congress? Senate? Don't make me laugh.

Let's talk about campaign finance. McCain and Obama worked together on campaign reform, so when Obama asked McCain to run a publicly finance election, McCain said sure. At the last possible minute, Obama pulled out, leaving McCain with 84 million plus matched 84 million to run for president. Obama reported 164 million in October alone. No wonder he looked like the nice guy, he bought that image. My mother always said if somebody was willing to lie to you once, they had no problem doing it over and over and over.

Our Congress and Senate have swung so far to the left, controlled by the Democratic Party led by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. I am trying to figure what is going to go first, your right to own and bear arms, your taxes, freedom of the press, or your religious freedoms. I may sound like a whack job, but read the words that are in this letter. I have heard so many people complaining about religion in politics. Hello people, "In God We Trust", "God Bless America, and "One Nation Under GOD", any of these statements mean anything to you. We are moving so far away from family values. How about, fair pair for fair work. I have one thing to say to you young voters, I have worked for 20 years to make the salary I make, don't expect to make it getting out college, let alone high school. Work for what you get, nothing is free. If the government gives it to you, somebody else has to pay for it.

I would love to sit here and tell the American public that everything is going to be OK, but I think I would be lying. Instead I am sitting here trying to write a warning. Two years from now I will be telling them all' "I told you so." I just hope that it will not be too late to save America. The next election is only 2 years away, start working early; we need balance in Congress and the Senate, we need to bring back family values, we need to bring our jobs back to America, we need fiscal responsibility, and we need to hold our politicians accountable for their actions. No political party should ever have total control over a country. We need to maintain a center line approach, it is the only way American can achieve homeostasis to ensure that our children's children will have a country to continue to be proud of. Remember GOD BLESSES AMERICA.

The picture tells it all. We are living the result of tolerance that has been rammed down our throats for the past 2 hundred years. "We the People", have fallen into a state of such laziness that we cannot or dare not read or ask questions about people for whom we may elect. Americans are being led around by the nose literally and told to act or think a certain Domocratic way. And yes, the general public is going along with it whole heartedly. So sad...

Excellent post Mike.
Unfortunately, when I was a kid, there was a guy in Russia named Nikita Khrushchev While he was mostly known for banging his shoe on the table at the UN and telling us he was going to bury us, he also said that America will not readily accept Communism, but will just wake up one day and find out they are. With the left wing socialist now in complete control, The push against the 1st and 2nd amendments with the fairness doctrine push as well as Obama's support of Local and State government's banning of weapons, I am afraid it has come to pass. the headstone is sad, but appropriate.
