I take it offensively that you say Obama has fooled myself and others. I think not sir, I have researched every allegation against him. I know the
truth behind his tax plans and health care plans. Socialism is just a word thrown by the heads of the right wing to scare the public.
Then I think you've not researched jack, sir. Otherwise you would have serious doubt about this man.
* How can you deny that his tax plan won't cause more harm? Doesn't it make sense that when you tax the job creating class, the added burden gets
passed down the line to the middle and blue collar classes?
* Nationalizing health care is going to seriously degrade the quality of the health care system as individual doctors will pull out of the national
offerings and go private-only since the government now negotiates their fee down to a third or less of what they're used to getting paid. What
you're left with is a series of mediocre health care professionals who only care about getting patients in and out on an assembly line.
* Questionable relations with the following people:
William Ayers - Former member of Weather Underground who held a fundraiser for Obama at Ayers' house in 1995
Tony Rezko - Slum lord.
First Obama said that his association with Antoin "Tony" Rezko, who is currently facing federal charges of attempted extortion, money
laundering, and fraud, wasn't a close association, which news reports later showed wasn't exactly the truth. Then further digging showed there was
also more money that exchanged hands than previously admitted.
James Meeks - another Obama spiritual advisor making the same hate speeches as Jeremiah Wright as seen in this video:
Sam Graham-Felson -
Sam Graham-Felsen, a journalist-on-leave from The Nation, joined Obama for America in March 2007 where he works for the New Media department as
the official blogger, daily presenting the campaign's public face. Now he's under fire for his reputed Marxist sympathies from bloggers at Common
Ills on the left and Little Green Footballs on the right. Graham-Felsen, according to a 2003 article in the Harvard Crimson, adorned one corner of his
shared student apartment with "a Communist Party flag ... bought on their trip to Russia the summer after sophomore year."
According to Huffington Post, who listed information about paid staffers on the Obama payroll, from America campaign 2007 second quarter report,
Graham-Felsen is a paid staffer for Barack Obama.
The WND article goes on to say that Graham-Felsen used to have a Communist Party flag in his Harvard campus apartment and published in a
self-professed 'revolutionary Marxist' journal.
Rashid Khalidi - a former member of the Palestinian Libertarian Organization. Obama was on the board of the Woods Fund(the same board he was with
Ayers on for 3 years), and gave $70,000 to the Arab American Action Network, co-founded by Khalidi. In return, Khalidi held a fundraiser for Obama in
2000. Obama also had a farewell dinner for Khalidi as he left for Columbia. The NY Times said Obama was a frequent dinner guest. As head of the Middle
Eastern program at Columbia, Khalidi is who got Ahmedinejad set up to speak at Columbia, who called the Israeli state a "catastrophe".
Robert Malley - a principal foreign policy advisor for Obama, has written numerous anti-Isreal blogs and opinions.
JERUSALEM – While officials here largely maintain a policy against interfering in U.S. election politics, some Israeli security officials
quietly expressed "concern" about an adviser to Sen. Barack Obama who has advocated negotiations with Hamas and providing international assistance
to the terrorist group.
The officials noted Robert Malley, a principal Obama foreign policy adviser, has penned numerous opinion articles, many of them co-written with a
former adviser to the late Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat, petitioning for dialogue with Hamas and blasting Israel for numerous
policies he says harm the Palestinian cause.
And this isn'e even all of them.
So I ask you again, sir, have you REALLY done all of the research, and if so, how can you NOT have lingering doubts about this man unless you choose
to turn a blind eye to what's right in front of you?
