More on Politics and Economics

Weary as we may be of politics and economics, we need to keep informed over the next 10 days so that we can make wise choices in the voting booth on November 4.

Regarding economics, read these articles and give them some serious thought:

"The Audacity of Brand-New Taxes" by Deroy Murdock

"Obamanomics Abhors the Free Market" by David Limbaugh

"Obamanomics" by Amil Imani

Our nation's strength and innovation depend on the wealth producers being free of oppressive tax rates. Obama seems to have the idea that he can guarantee equality of outcome. This is false. Each person has different talents and abilities, levels of ambition, amount of work ethic, and ideas of what success is. America is about equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome. The outcome depends on what each individual brings to the table. Individuals have to be responsible and accountable for what they do and don't do. Give them opportunities and let them make of them what they will. That will bring far more success to more people than the foolish notion of attempting to guarantee equality of outcome.

About politics and the presidential election:

"Dear Undecided...Are You Kidding Me?" by JB Williams

"Do Americans Understand What Socialism Is?" by Frank Salvato

"America at the Tipping Point in 2008" by Christopher G. Adamo

Any post by Alan Caruba at his blog, Warning Signs.

There are many more such posts. We have a lot of important things we need to consider about the direction America will be taken in by the next President of the United States. It is far from irrelevant to consider the character and past affiliations of the candidates. It is important to think about which candidate evades answering even simple questions about what his plans for America really are. Yes, I am an unapologetic conservative Republican who will vote for McCain-Palin. Yes, I link to conservative articles by conservative writers. You can get plenty of pro-Obama articles in the mainstream media. What I am trying to do is balance that bias with some truth and some issues for you to consider carefully.

It is a mistake to think that a big, intrusive government can solve our problems for us. It is a mistake that a weak American military will somehow lead to world peace. The stronger and more free America is, the more good she can do in the world and the more she can do to fight oppression and tyranny wherever it is found. I cannot stress enough the importance of following the Constitution of the United States. Our Founding Fathers carefully created that document in order to preserve freedom and liberty for American citizens. At The Patriot Post you can read important historic documents, including the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. You can also read their newsletter (the latest editions on their front page and the older editions in the archives) which contains many important insights. If you read nothing else, reading the website of The Patriot Post will help you understand America.

It is not my intention to hurt or offend with my posts. It is my intention to educate Americans so that they truly understand what is at stake, now and in the future.

Mary,

You can't offend anyone, we choose to be offended or not offended. The same as you can't apologize for someone else.

Many in this country are about to make a big mistake. I'm sure Obama is going to be elected. Way to many conservatives see Obama as a reasonable alternative and I just can't understand why. I've stated I would have voted for Hilary before Obama (not that I would vote for either). Obama is more liberal and more dangerous. Please wake up my fellow Americans!

JR, you're right about that!

Titus Todd, I don't understand it either, and I want Americans to wake up, too! Obama will abandon anyone or anything if he thinks it will help him politically. He isn't a dependable representative of the people. Not to mention he doesn't seem to understand much about economics, foreign policy, energy, etc., etc. I don't think people understand how far left he is and how dangerous that is to America.
