What You should know before you vote!

Editors note: This article was first published in October 2008. To my knowledge, these questions have not been answered as of September 1, 2012.

Now is the time for you to try to contain some of the damage that has been done by our government up to now.

First, I have not been this concerned about an election since Lyndon Johnson promised to “Take from the Haves, and give to the Have-Nots”, clearly a socialist direction for our country. Now, I again am concerned that Obama, Reid, and Pelosi may capture the power to take us even faster than ever toward a socialist country and ultimately remove the opportunities for our children for which we have fought, and so many of our military have died. So as a voter, and someone who is concerned about your children’s and grandchildren’s futures you deserve some answers to the following questions from Obama and the Democratic Party.

1. Who paid for Obama’s education at Occidental and Columbia? Then Harvard Law? During that time, who financed his “Around the World” trip? Having helped my 2 children’s college education, and being in the middle class, I know what the strain is on the family. Then, if you were to assume student financing, how could he afford to buy a $1.6 million home? Note that at the same time Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama’s new home was purchased.

2. Obama claims to be a Christian. As such I expect him to be guided by Judao-Christian principals. What biblical authority does Obama use to justify his desire to steal from one group of citizens and give to others (”spread the wealth” , an answer given to Joe plumber asking what Obama was going to do for the small businessman)? What is “fair” about taking a larger percentage of an income just because the income is greater? That a person who makes $50 an hour pays $5 in taxes but a man that makes $100 an hour pays $15 in taxes doesn't seem fair to me.

3. Obama has repudiated his long-time minister and mentor, Jeremiah Wright, and even left the church of which he has been a long time member. But does he repudiate the “Liberation Theology” with which the church is associated — specifically the following tenants: Note that Michelle Obama has said that her husband has not changed.

“To be Christian is to be one of those whom God has chosen. God has chosen black people!”

“Black hatred is the black man’s strong aversion to white society. No black man living in white America can escape it…But the charge of black racism cannot be reconciled with the facts. While it is true that blacks do hate whites, black hatred is not racism.

“We cannot solve ethical questions of the twentieth century by looking at what Jesus did in the first. Our choices are not the same as his. Being Christians does not mean following ‘in his steps.’”

“Therefore, simply to say that Jesus did not use violence is no evidence relevant to the condition of black people as they decide on what to do about white oppression.”

“The Christian does not decide between violence and nonviolence, evil and good. He decides between the less and the greater evil.”

“‘People should love each other’ sounds like Riis Park at sundown. It has very little meaning to the world at large.”

“All white men are responsible for white oppression.”

“The white structure of this American society, personified in every racist, must be at least part of what the New Testament meant by the demonic forces.”

“If there is any contemporary meaning of the Antichrist (or “the principalities and powers”), the white church seems to be a manifestation of it. It was the white “Christian” church which took the lead in establishing slavery as an institution and segregation as a pattern in society by sanctioning all-white congregations.”

“Whether the American system is beyond redemption we will have to wait and see. But we can be certain that black patience has run out, and unless white America responds positively to the theory and activity of Black Power, then a bloody, protracted civil war is inevitable.”

“The revolution which Black Theology advocates … [means] confronting white racists and saying: ‘If it’s a fight you want, I am prepared to oblige you.’ This is what the black revolution means.”

“Black Power seeks not understanding but conflict; addresses blacks and not whites; seeks to develop black support, but not white good will.”

There is no use for a God who loves white oppressors the same as oppressed blacks. We have had too much of white love, the love that tells blacks to turn the other cheek and go the second mile. What we need is the divine love as expressed in black power, which is the power of blacks to destroy their oppressors, here and now, by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject God’s love.”

If Barack Obama has repudiated or does repudiate these tenants(quotes for which I will give references if you wish), which would be a conversion only realized during the period he has been running for president (or during the first two years of his presidency), then he may be trusted to be the leader of the free world and President of the United States. If not, and with the support of the congressional majorities, we are looking at the likelihood of the end of the United States that we inherited, one of constitutional protections of individual rights, freedom, and the promise of the free enterprise (capitalistic) system.

Do not trust this site.  If you find documentation and evidence that President Obama does repudiate these tenants, we would like to know.  So we implore you to answer these questions to your own satisfaction.
