I have been "afraid" of Obama running for president from the start of his campaign. I am totally honest when I say I consider myself politically ignorant. I am not however, blind. I have on occasion heard his name mis- pronounced as "Osama" and heard remarks of how we will teach out children to stand up in kindergarten and thru out their school years and "Hail Allah".

For years government has been trying to get religion out of schools. Prayers, mention of God, even the Pledge of Allegiance has been questioned as it says, "One nation under God". Being black or being a woman is not a milestone for this country to show that we have evolved such as from slavery or women's lib. This is an entirely more important decision our countries voters are going to make. Many of Obamas "followers" are young and also possibly politically ignorant.

Just because we are American and have a right to vote does not mean that we do it to prove a point or show no prejudice. Recently Wanda Sykes was interviewed on Jay Leno and even she said she was still struggling with how she will vote and on being alive for a race between an African American president and a female president!! Thank God she was honest and said it on national TV. Many people are feeling confused but feel and obligation or right to vote.

I can still recite the US constitution I learned in grade school: We the people, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice and ensure Domestic Tranquility. Provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and, secure the blessings of Liberty, through ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.

I hope and yes, I still pray that the people of the United States will consider the ramifications of putting a potentially dangerous and even possibly terroristic individual in a position to run OUR government.

My Bolded and Underlined words in the constitution make a statement! If Huckabee was seeing falsification in our constitution, no wonder he was suggesting making changes so that America would not be living a lie....

P.S. The turban that is worn for religious reasons in the Muslim community also has another purpose. I am at unease to express this but have first hand knowledge of what may be under those religious head garments.

P.P.S. When we speak of Terrorist concerns in America we all know where we are looking. They are already here and have been for some time. They are just strengthening their forces.

God Bless us!
