Some words to ponder...

This one can't be proven false or true as it is one man's opinion and the
man is Ken Blackwell, a columnist for the New York Sun. He is also
black which doesn't really shouldn't make a difference...

It's an amazing time to be alive in America . We're in a year of
firsts in this presidential election: the first viable woman
candidate; the first viable African-American candidate; and, a
candidate who is the first frontrunning freedom fighter over 70. The
next president of America will be a first.

We won't truly be in an election of firsts, however, until we judge
every candidate by where they stand. We won't arrive where we should be
until we no longer talk about skin color or gender. Now
that Barack Obama steps to the front of the Democratic field, we need
to stop talking about his race, and start talking about his policies
and his politics.

The reality is this: Though the Democrats will not have a nominee
until August, unless Hillary Clinton drops out, Mr. Obama is now the
frontrunner, and its time America takes a closer and deeper look at him.

Some pundits are calling him the next John F. Kennedy. He's not. He's
the next George McGovern. And it's time people learned the facts.

Because the truth is, Mr. Obama is the single most liberal senator in
the entire U.S. Senate. He is more liberal than Ted Kennedy, Bernie
Sanders, or Mrs. Clinton. Never in my life have I seen a presidential
frontrunner whose rhetoric is so far removed from his record. Walter
Mondale promised to raise our taxes, and he lost. George McGovern
promised military weakness, and he
lost. Michael Dukakis promised a liberal domestic agenda, and he lost.

Yet Mr. Obama is promising all those things, and he's not behind in the
polls. Why? Because the press has dealt with him as if he were in a
beauty pageant. Mr. Obama talks about getting past party, getting
past&am p;nbs p; red and blue, to lead the United States of America .
But let's look at the more defined strokes of who he is underneath this
superficial "beauty."

Start with national security, since the president's most important
duties are as commander-in-chief. Over the summer, Mr. Obama talked
about invading Pakistan, a nation armed with nuclear weapons; meeting
without preconditions with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who vows to destroy
Israel and create another Holocaust; and Kim Jong II, who is murdering
and starving his people, but emphasized that the nuclear option was off
the table against terrorists - something no president has ever taken
off the table since we created nuclear weapons in the 1940s.

Even Democrats who have worked in national security condemned all of
those remarks. Mr. Obama is a foreign-policy novice who would put our
national security at risk.

Next, consider economic policy. For all its faults, our health care
system is the strongest in the world. And free trade agreements,
created by Bill Clinton as well as President Bush, have made more
goods more affordable so that even people of modest means can live a
life tha t no one imagined a generation ago. Yet Mr. Obama promises to
raise taxes on "the rich." How to fix Social Security? Raise taxes. How
to fix Medicare? Raise taxes. Prescription drugs? Raise taxes. Free
college? Raise taxes. Socialize medicine? Raise taxes. His solution to
everything is to have government take it over. Big Brother on steroids,
funded by your paycheck.
Finally, look at the social issues. Mr. Obama had the audacity to
open a stadium rally by saying, "All praise and glory to God!" but
says that Christian leaders speaking for life and marriage have
"hijacked" -hijacked- Christianity. He is pro-partial birth abortion,
and promises to appoint Supreme Court justices who will rule any
restriction on it unconstitutional. He espouses the abortion views of
Margaret Sanger,one of the early advocates of racial cleansing. His
spiritual leaders endorse homosexual marriage, and he is moving in that
direction. In Illinois , he refused to vote against a statewide ban -
ban - on all hand guns in the state. These are radical left, Hollywood ,
and San

Francisco values, not Middle America values.

The real Mr. Obama is an easy target for the general election. Mrs.
Clinton is a far tougher opponent. But Mr. Obama could win if people
don't start looking behind his veneer and flowery speeches. His vision
of "bringing America together" means saying that those who disagree
with his agenda for America are hijackers or warmongers. Uniting the
country means adopting his liberal agenda and abandoning any
conflicting beliefs.

But right now everyone is talking about how eloquent of a speaker he
is and - yes - they're talking about his race. Those should never be
the factors on which we base our choice for president. Mr. Obama's
radical agenda sets him far outside the American mainstream, to the
left of Mrs. Clinton.
It's time to talk about the real Barack Obama. In an election of
firsts, let's first make sure we elect the person
who is qualified to be our president in a nuclear age during a global
civilizational war.
According to The Book of Revelations the anti-christ is:
The anti-christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will
deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE
Christ-like appeal....the prophecy says that people will flock to him
and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in
power, will destroy everything. Is it OBAMA??
