The Candidate of Danger

Defense Failure

Who is the real Barack Obama? It appears we have found a another clue that helps explain where an Obama presidency could lead. The latest information comes to us in a campaign message from the great one himself, Barack Hussein Obama.

“I am the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning, and as President I will end it.”

There is no mention of victory, which leaves us with the typical democrat party solution to cut-and-run. We could easily suspect that an instant pull out is meant to protect the enemy and not US interests. That may or may not be the intention, but it will certainly be the result. He doesn’t seem concerned with the bloodbath to follow.

“I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending. I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems, I will not weaponise space. I will slow our development of future combat systems. I will institute an independent defense priorities board to ensure that the annual (?) defense review is not used to justify unnecessary spending.”

Obama’s approach to defense is reckless and asinine. Instead of meeting the enemy from a position of strength, he will place the country at the mercy of their good intentions. What enemy wouldn’t salivate at this prospect? You may notice no mention of any social program cuts.

“I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal I will not develop new nuclear weapons, I will seek a ban on the production of fissionable material, and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair trigger alert and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals.”

Again Obama promises to weaken national security making it easier for our own destruction. We must question his capacity for leadership. We must understand that no matter how many bankrupting social programs he proposes, it won’t matter if someone takes your country.

Defense is the number one priority of any government. From his own lips, Obama promises steps to destroy in a systematic fashion the one thing that keeps us free. With radical Islam racing to get nuclear weapons, do you really believe the smooth words of Obama will be a deterrent? Are you willing to stake your life on it?

In the past, I’ve tossed around several possibilities about the real Obama. This is no longer necessary for now we know the truth. Barack Hussein Obama is simply dangerous.

  1. Hi LC,

    You really shouldn’t worry about Obama’s pledge to destroy our armed forces, since, once he converts the country into a withdrawn, isolationist state to protect cushy union jobs, we won’t need to maintain the best military in the world. All we’ll need is a modest force to keep the population under control. Of course, since the population will grow rapidly under his plan for uncontrolled illegal immigration, we may need a few more troops, but they won’t need to be well equipped to deal with civilians. We will, however, need to drastically expand the FBI as it’s turned into a secret police force with sufficient capability to enforce all of Barack’s insane social modification programs. Fortunately, they won’t need expensive high-tech weapons either, just rubber hoses and cattle prods.

    I’d rant some more, but I’ve got to go finish the design for my bunker and check over the list of supplies to hoard before Obama takes the Oath of Office. The amount of stuff one needs to survive for four years while the country falls apart is truly daunting.

    You might be closer to the truth than we would like to think. Obama is the master of promises. If even a tenth of what he says comes true you’re going to have a lot of people knocking on your bunker door. Maybe you should think extra-large and a secret knock might not be a bad idea.

  3. Hi LC,

    That’s a good idea. Unfortunately, travel restrictions are probably the first thing Obama will put in place, so unless you’re in walking distance…

    Speaking of which, I just caught part a bit of his speech, wherein he is pledging to cap carbon emissions if elected. This not only raises the grim specter of another VP term for Al Gore, but makes me wonder if I’m going to be forced to install a monitoring device on my chimney?

  4. Hi Grit

    So Obama wants to cap carbon emissions. With the new Ice Age coming the carbon emission may be the only thing that protects us from freezing to death. 🙂

    Politicians are such vain creatures. They certainly do enjoy having their hands in all the pies. The sad thing is they can’t even run a government without invoking turmoil and disaster. What makes them think they possess the ability to go planet tinkering? Someone gets elected and suddenly they are all knowing?

    If only an over-inflated ego was knowledge.

  5. Obama is a wuss and a joke. He’s full of empty promises. People who support him are also dumb. If you ask most of his supporters what are some significant things hes done they wouldn’t know what to answer because he has never done anything significant except be a good public speaker. I fear for my life if he becomes president. He will clearly end the war in Iraq by running with his tail between his legs only to have the war in the US. It will be seen as a huge moral boost and there will be sure to be more bombings in the US and with a shitty defense program under his watch more people would die.

  6. Hi Reader

    The Obama rise reminds me of when I was in school learning about Hitler’s rise to power. I remember wondering, “How can so many people be fooled into following this guy?” I decided at the time that I was being a bit critical mainly because I had the benefit of hindsight.

    As I see a similar scenario unfolding in front of my eyes I again find myself asking the same question, “How can so many people be fooled into following this guy?” The difference now is the benefit and knowledge of history.

  7. I am very skeptical about Obama. He makes everything he talks about sound so easy and without any consequences. Whatever he does will bring about a huge backlash. But maybe that is what this country needs.

    He is similar to a Rorschach test. But he is an accomplished senator with a successful track record. Many of his policies will affect positively America and the world in the long run.

    I think comparing him to Hitler is overdoing it, but I understand why some people are skeptical. He is black and probably many white people are scared that they will not retain their white power positions. Those positions will still remain but they are being eroded regardless of if Obama or Clinton get elected. Things are changing and it is going to be rough for a long time, but America has never really been a country. America has been in debt and enslaved for years to private bankers. I don’t know think Obama can change that over night, but he at least deserves a shot.

  8. Hi LC,

    One of my favorite books has that as its premise. Fallen Angles by Niven & Pournelle is built around the eventual Government takeover by the “Green” party, and their imposition of “appropriate technology” pushes us into a new ice age. Since they wrote it back in 1991, I can only say that they’re visionaries, or that Al Gore reads more than I imagined.

  9. Hi RO

    You’re not alone in being skeptical. That’s what happens when a candidate insists on maintaining his privacy while running for president. Fortunately more information is surfacing which should remove much of the speculation. At least that way the voters will know the real candidate and will have only themselves to blame if the worst happens.

    The comparison to Hitler was more in situation than person to person. One Hitler is quite enough. The one thing we can learn is no politician is the answer. You may have noticed that it’s their egos and policies that usually get us into trouble. To count on them to fix it is a fantasy. Eventually the people must do that whether they like it or not.

  10. Hi Grit

    Gore did have quite a bit of free time as VP so it is possible that’s the book responsible for his rise to green queen. However, I wouldn’t call Gore a visionary but more of an illusionist.
