‘For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”‘  ~ Romans 8:15

With the recent election still visible in the rear view mirror, I would like to make another prediction: Not only will President Obama NOT end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, we will most likely see him expand the GWOT© into Pakistan and, heaven forbid, Iran.  The Peace Candidate?  I think not.  Meet me here again in four years.

The current situation reminds me of the election of 1968 (which I am familiar with due to study and not, obviously, memory) in which Richard Nixon vowed to extricate U.S. forces from the exceedingly unpopular war in Vietnam.  The problem during the election was that Nixon would not elaborate nor give details as to how exactly he planned to end the war–a reporter labelled Nixon’s vow his ‘Secret Plan’ (a term Nixon never challenged).  In fact, once elected, Nixon not only failed to bring U.S. involvement to a halt, he expanded the war in scope and geographically.  When the U.S. finally did evacuate Vietnam it was at the hands of defeat–FIVE YEARS LATER.

I’m getting a creeping feeling of déjà vu.

 

On another note, as I mentioned in a previous post, Obama supports slavery.  If that is not scary enough, his new chief of staff–a former Clinton staffer (is that ‘change’?) named Rahm Emanuel–not only is a beg fan of enslaving our children, he even wrote a book about it.

Yes we can?  No, we shouldn’t!!

  1. Lets Give Our New President Elect a Chance.

    Most people who voted for Obama had no idea who he was or what he was. I guess the media did a good job selling him. McCain, although he is a good man, wasn’t picked by republicans to run. He was picked by Democrat crossover voters in states who allow non party members to vote under any ticket they want. After they did that they went back to their Democrat home. McCain is no conservative. He doesn’t seem to realize that when a republican walks across the aisle to work with Democrats they break your leg. If you reach across the aisle they break your arm. Their idea of bi-partisanship is simple. You give up your principals and do what we want. Coming together to them means that you compromise your ideas and accept theirs.

    The biggest danger, even if Republicans regain control of congress in two years, will be all the judicial appointments that will be made in that time. I only hope that they will be unable to stack the supreme court with liberal appointments. FDR had 20 years to stack the court and it took a lifetime to turn it around.

    Of course we must not be too cruel to our new president. We should not call him a liar.

    We should not call him a liar when he said he wanted to bankrupt the coal industry.

    We should not call him a liar when he said utility bills would skyrocket because of the coal industry being regulated and taxed to death.

    We should not call him a liar when he said he wanted to redistribute the wealth.

    We should not call him a liar when he said he wanted to replace the military with a civillian force.

    We should not call him a liar when he said he wanted to meet with Iran without preconditions.

    We should not call him a liar when he said he wanted to invade Pakistan.

    We should not call Biden a liar when he said that supreme court appointments should be made based more on the nominees philosophical views than on their judicial temperment. Can you say litmus test?

    Hold onto your money belt we are in for a five ticket ride.

    I could go on and on but I think you get the point.

  2. I hope I didn’t give you the impression I was a McCain supporter–or Republicans in general. I left the Republicrat party years ago when they jettisoned their conservative bona fides.

    As for the Supreme Court, the worst/ most activist judges on the court were nearly all appointed by…Republicans. The ‘Pro-Life’ party has done nothing to stop abortion and yet we are supposed to keep voting them in because they ‘say’ they are Pro-Life?

    Obama will prove to be an imperial President just like those who preceded him, due in no small part to his genuflecting before the Israel lobby. When AIPAC instructs him to start killing Arabs–he’ll do it with gusto.

    If I’m wrong, I’ll be happy to take my lumps at the end of his term(s).
