This top 5 list will discuss the top 5 reasons to vote for Barack Obama for POTUS. Please read only if you can handle opinions and views with which you may or may not agree without getting too mad or hurt.
The world hates us and with Obama as president, the world will love us. We want to know why the terrorists hate us so we can stop making them so mad. Besides, we saw how much the world loved us when Carter and Clinton were president. We had an attempt on the twin towers in 96, and multiple embassy attacks under Carter’s term. Besides, these poor brutal dictators just need us to sit down and talk to them and then they will come around. Who cares if it lends legitimacy to their evil regimes? Oops, did I say evil? I meant “misunderstood”.
#5 Health Care/Insurance is a right! Roughly 47 million people in America do not have health insurance. Under Barack Obama, those of us who have a job and pay for insurance will get to make sure that everyone who does not have health insurance (including rough 12-15 million illegal immigrants) gets to have it at our expense.
#4 Guns are evil. The only people that should carry a concealed weapon in public are police, retired police, and criminals. Obama has gone on record and will continue to be on record against permits for concealed carry of firearms with the exception of police and retired police. That makes anyone who would carry a weapon outside of police or retired police a criminal. We know that criminals already break the laws in place, so further restricting gun ownership and rights would give more control to criminals. Also, Barack Obama strongly supports legislation outlawing “assault guns”, cheap guns, and high capacity magazines. He also believes that all guns should be registered with the federal government, microstamped, and taxed $500 each time it changes hands. This would make gun ownership virtually impossible for low income and poor people, the very people he claims to help. Who gives a rip about the 2nd Amendment?
#3 Marriage should not be defined as it currently is, between one man and one woman. Barack Obama strongly opposes the Defense of Marriage Act. Even though Obama says he is not a supporter of “Gay Marriage”, his actions do not line up with his campaign words. While this is not a defining issue for me, it is for many Americans. We also know that Obama supports adding homosexuality to the mix concerning hate speech in church. Churches could possibly lose their tax exempt status for simply saying that homosexuality is a sin. Who cares about the 1st Amendment anyway?
#2 Taxation should be a means of redistributing wealth. Rich people need to pay more taxes. We know that the government does not create wealth, they only take it through taxation, fines, and fees. So how better to start this trickling up than to take the opportunity from those who are trying to earn more and give it to those who do not. Who cares if those at the bottom pay taxes or not, let’s call the government handouts a “tax cut”. About 65% of Americans pay income taxes. Obama said he will cut taxes on 95% of Americans and raise it on 5%. Where did he come up with the magical number of $250,000 per year income as being rich anyway? Abe Lincoln, who was strongly pro labor would be beyond angry at Obama for his big government power grab and attempted socialist/redistributionist tax policy.
#1 Abortion should be legal at any stage of pregnancy, minors should be able to have an abortion without consent of their parents, and the taxpayer should foot the bill for those abortions. Barack Obama told Planned Parenthood that his first act as POTUS would be to sign FOCA (Freedom of Choice Act) which makes all abortion procedures legal at any stage of pregnancy (including “Partial Birth Abortion”), eliminates parental notification for minors, and specifically funds abortions for low income and poor with federal tax payer dollars. There is video of Obama’s speech to Planned Parenthood at the above link.
