Interesting article

A friend recently posted their dismay that a "socialist" has been elected president, and wished that McCain had been elected instead. I tried to point out that Bush and McCain are pretty socialist as well, but I think my point was perhaps not getting across very well.

Here's an interesting article for your perusal:

Like Barack Obama, John McCain is a Socialist

Note that the New American is a very conservative publication. I say this to point out that you don't have to be a "radical left-wing nut" to disagree with Bush and McCain's policies.

And to clarify, I did not vote for Obama because I am very strongly pro-life (the only vote I cast this election cycle was for this guy), but I am excited to see an African-American family in the White House. I will be praying that Mr. Obama and his family are kept safe and sound, and not hurt by the racist hate that is unfortunately still alive and well in our society. I will also be praying that Mr. Obama has a change of heart regarding the rights of the unborn (but I'm not holding my breath on that one).


  1. Sharon,

    Interesting post. I too was repulsed by Obama's abortion extremism, to the extent that I considered voting for McCain. But after reading that during the Bush administration, funding for Planned Parenthood *increased* at a faster rate than under Clinton, I decided that the "lesser of two evils" was still just too much evil for me to stomach.

    Of course, if you believe that the Iraq War is morally wrong (as I do), then the Republicans have lost their "moral high ground" already. (Why would Saddam have wanted to destroy the world's biggest oil consumer, anyway?)


  2. P.S. Yes, I read your blog all the time! Elijah and Noah are hilarious. Keep the posts coming! :)

  3. Sharon,

    Do you have an email address?

    I am sorry if I have offended you in the discussion on Sam's blog; maybe there are some things I need to clarify, but would be better said privately if that is ok.

    I am at if want to mail me, or you can leave a comment on my blog

    Again, no racism or offence was intended; I was just trying to explain the British media's perspective.


  4. PS Caleb, and others, shared blogger profiles make life simpler: right now I am assuming you are the one person I know named Caleb, while you might be someone else.

    "never assume, it makes an ass of u and me"
