The prospect of people voting for Obama is disturbing. It shows division has overtaken America. It's not about his past association with terrorist Bill Ayers, or his mysterious support for Raila Odinga of Kenya, or even the fact that Louis Farrakhan likes him. I'm concerned about what he will do in office, unfettered by a friendly congress.

The prospect of people voting for Obama is disturbing. It shows division has overtaken America. It's not about his past association with terrorist Bill Ayers, or his mysterious support for Raila Odinga of Kenya, or even the fact that Louis Farrakhan likes him. I'm concerned about what he will do in office, unfettered by a friendly congress.
He promised Planned Parenthood that he would sign the Freedom of Choice Act immediately. Anyone unfamiliar with the Act should know: with one stroke of the pen it will undo all the pro-life advances that were ever achieved by legislation. He will also appoint Supreme Court justices. With their help, he could re-interpret the constitution, removing our right to bear arms. He favors gun control. He will be anti-Israel. He has supporters in the Arab world just waiting for him to get elected. He will promote the "Fairness Doctrine," silencing conservatives on the airways.
People are hoping Obama can straighten out our economy. I'll say something that you won't hear elsewhere: No one can—only God. How can we expect God to bless this nation while allowing partial birth abortion? Hmmm... That's like poking a finger in God's eye while asking Him to bless us. Obama is for abortion. Any Catholic who votes for him should be ashamed. Abortion trumps every other issue because all the issues rely on God. Is the new unbelief where our division comes from?
What sort of crisis will test Obama soon after he takes office? Joe Biden says one will. He even claims Obama will need our support because, "it might not be evident that his response will be right." Is Biden subconsciously afraid of winning?
We must save this country from a type of "change" that we'll regret.
