After reading a few Obama hating rants on ATS, I decided to jump in and express my view.
I know why so many of you dislike him and his followers so much.
You are AFRAID
Some are afraid of the color of his skin, some fear he might be a muslim in disguise and some are afraid of change.
Let's face it, if Obama had a whiter skin and name, I think many of those hating him would actually listen to what he has to say.
Let's face it. You haven't expressed a single policy issue that has caused you to support Obama instead of Clinton. Just name one policy of
Obama's that swayed you to his side.
Honest to God, the level of condescension and arrogance in your post is stunning. Your implication is that if s person doesn't like Obama he or she
must be a bigot. Nice.
Do you even read what you write before you hit the "Post" button?
Here's why I don't think Obama would make a worthy POTUS:
1. He wants to disarm the U.S. military and cut back development of new weapons.
2. He wants to give $50 billion a year to Africa instead of using it to rebuild U.S. infrastructure.
3. He wants to implement a federally controlled U.S. health care system.
4. He wants to immediately pull out troops from Iraq which will lead to anarchy, and will undo the progress that's been made, as well as open up Iraq
to be controlled by the Shiite Iranian government.
5. He wants to move forward with a mandatory cap and trade carbon emission program. This is nothing more than a tax that will devastate U.S. industry
by placing U.S. companies at an insurmountable competitive disadvantage, AND will do nothing to save the the world from the fabricated crisis.
6. He will appoint liberal Supreme Court justices who will not interpret the Constitution, but instead will use their position on the Supreme Court to
institute their liberal agenda.
7. He will err on the side of appeasing foreign countries, and not just our enemies. He is more concerned with the global community that U.S.
8. He has chosen a peer group of people who hate America. I am concerned that this will cause Obama to lean towards anti-U.S. policies such as
eliminating our space-based missile defense system.
Now tell me, which of the above has anything to do with race?
