I occasionally hear from friends who tell me they are still undecided about who they will vote for for president. Several such cases of indecision even come from those who claim they are “moderates.” This is mind-bendingly astonishing to me.
I have three choices when I hear these sorts of things.
1) I can believe I am out of touch or going insane, perhaps acquiring an earlier than expected case of Alzheimer's or other form of dementia.
2) I can believe that such folks are not moderate at all, but have merely been feigning moderation and I never really knew them, or
3) They are isolated from reality themselves, choosing to remain uninformed about the stark differences in the choice they have between two totally different candidates, the debacle first term and the debacle a third Obama term as president would be for this country.
I ask myself “do they see no problem with, or are they simply ignorant of the origins, associations, ideologies, appointees, and numerous statements of disdain for America that Obama expressed and that served as the basis for his nation-destroying policies?”
His childhood origins and influences from third world countries (Kenya, Indonesia) that have little in common with the culture, ideology, religions, morality, and government of the United States, e,g. Dreams from my Father.
The preponderance of influence from Communist, Islamic, and Black Nationalist mentors, associates, and father figures from his early years well through current adulthood, e.g. Muslim parents/relatives, Communist mentors (Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dorn and others), and 20 years in a Black Nationalist church led by racist Jeremiah Wright.
The numerous communist and Muslim appointees in prominent positions of power within the US Government is as close to a coup de tat and sedition as I have observed in my lifetime. He has facilitated the rapid infiltration even intp sensitive Homeland Security posts by Muslims who certainly do NOT have the principles of democracy as an objective except as a means to facilitate the growth and power of Islam in this nation.
The policies Obama has promoted via his administration, power and influence reflect these foreign, seditious, America-hating associations and beliefs he holds dear. A casualty of his policies has been capitalism and a healthy economy that he has dragged into the gutter of disrespect and loathing.
The contrasting candidate is Mitt Romney who is as American as apple pie. We know his origins. His family has been here long enough to assimilate American culture, ideals, and principles that facilitate our growth and prosperity. Contrast this with Obama whose life history created contempt for America – he merely mouths smooth-sounding words of Americana when opportunism dictates. Romney has substantial, successful, and respected business experience. Obama has none, and he is attempting to discredit the success that Romney achieved and represents. If Obama can discredit Romney’s accomplishments in the private sector, he can discredit any free enterprise loving entrepreneur and business person in the nation.
Why a person has to ponderously ponder and remain undecided about a candidate with these stark differences is completely beyond my understanding.
Such puzzling over the obvious does answer one question for me: This ignorance explains how Obama was elected in the first place.
