His stance on immigration is too soft. Obama wants to give them all amnesty and hugs.....I want to build a 500' wall across both Northern and Southern borders, with computer-controlled machineguns that blast anything that comes within 100' of the wall.
He wants to increase the estate or "death" tax in order to steal my Father's millions when he dies. Dad made millions from nothing, and paid taxes on all of it already. It will not be taxed ever again by anyone.
And here's the big one: guns.
His voting record on gun-related issues is pathetic. Based on his voting record, he plans to disarm the populace, and as we all know, a well-armed populace is the best defense against tyranny.
Chicago, my home, is #1 murder capital of the US because we have no right to keep OR bear arms (some people, who shall remain nameless, do anyway). Apparently, the Bill of Rights doesn't pertain to Chicago unless you are a politician. Basically, he wants to re-write the Constitution and Bill of Rights.....and to start, he wants to kill the 2nd amendment. He has bigger issues to deal with (if elected), but I guarantee that he'll get around to it. The right of the individual to keep & bear arms is the one right that guarantees all the rest. We lose this, we lose all the others.
Today, Chicago effectively bans its residents from privately possessing handguns -- a law in effect since the early 1980s -- and that's not going to change anytime soon... First, there will be reams of litigation, with Chicago taxpayers footing part of the hefty bill.
If you want all of the US to more closely resemble Chicago (the most repressive place to live in the US), then go ahead and vote for Obama. Anybody who votes to put a gun-grabbing, racist/Marxist Chicago Machine politician in the White House probably deserves what they end up getting - a total police state (vs. the partial police state we already live in).

Your point is valid, however the bottom line is America is sick of BUSH & Comp. All I am saying is that people are more mad at the GOP than their inadaquate understandings of Obama.
Doesn't that makes psychological sense?

Some of it may be, but there is one important fact I got from it that cannot be denied: Obama wants to create a Civilian National Security Force that would be as powerful as our military.
Why would he want that? Why do we need that?
we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence in the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right.

The question I have is... What will the citizenship requirements be for this CNSF? Will he fill it with the "Muslim Brother's" he referenced in his book?
