Speaking as a keen ATS member and as someone who through my citizenship cannot vote in the upcoming US presidential election I thought it was time I
put my thoughts into a thread on what I see as a clear and seemingly determined campaign on here to either slur the democratic party or more directly
to slander Barack Obama and of course in effect damage his campaign and try to swing potential voters on here.
An over-reaction you might say?
Or perhaps it is counter balanced by similiar threads on Senator McCain
Well the anti-Obama related threads seem to far outnumber those
which discuss his adversary.
And I present for the defence:
(and this is just a snippet)
Obama lawsuit backfires! 8 more lawsuits filed against OBAMA!
Fed Judge Throws Out Berg v. Obama Lawsuit? Or did he?
Obama is a Marxist
Obama 2001 Redistribution of Wealth Audio Uncovered
It's almost over- Obama and the Bradley Effect..
Obama's Extreme Stand on Abortion
Does Obama know the definition of "small business?"
Obama's anti christian speech
and it continues.
I personally believe there is a concerted effort on here
to damage the Democratic ticket or at least to discredit
Barack Obama, the man, the politician and the policies
and issues he believes in and the change he has promised.
For me this is just another reason why I truly hope
and pray that on November 4th the American people
will do the right thing for themselves and indeed the world
by replacing Bush with the most dynamic and exciting
political leader in the presidential race.
This speech says it all for me, it is truly inspirational:
