Why I Think Obama Will Win and Why This Will Be My Last Political Blog Entry
I predict Barack Obama will win this election and I say that with much foreboding. I say this because Sen. Obama tells the American people what they want to hear, promising a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Sen. Obama's worldview is one of entitlements and rights. He believes those who make the most should pay for these rights through their taxes. He preaches that there is such a thing as a free lunch because the greedy business owners should (it's patriotic after all) pick up the tab. I believe he's selling the American people a bill of goods we can't afford. But he's tickling our ears, dangling the sweets, and encouraging "class" envy. It's attractive. It looks good on the surface but can only lead to greater dependency of big ole government (which takes more and more taxes) and it's a far cry from what our founding fathers envisioned. I don't respect Obama's disrespect for life in the womb and I truly believe his belief in economic justice through redistribution of wealth (setting up for the disadvantaged and those who lean toward receiving and not giving to only receive thus not encouraging their vital role in contributing to our society). All income classes deserve better than this. This economic plan stifle our entrepreneurial spirit - something for which the U.S. is known.
Now, why is this the last political blog entry? Well, I went to the doctor today, after having blood tests done yesterday. My LDL levels are high. Everything else is fine. My physician assistant isn't too concerned because I have no other indicators for concern. However I need to work on lowering my LDL and raising that good HDL. There are three ways to accomplish this:
2) low cholesterol diet
3) lower stress.
I do #1, can work on #2 and after tonight's debate performance of Sen. McCain have decided I must remove myself from the political theater.
