Hi Jennifer!

Well, that's an interesting statement, and that seems to be the general feeling on here, but I don't think that's the case.

Remember when all the white-guilt and African American liberals declared Bill Clinton as the first "Black": president ever? They did this for one simple reason: They NEVER expected a Black man to have a chance to run for office, so they took the easy way out.

Now that a BIRACIAL man (he's considered Black, of course, because we know how many democrats feel about white people) is taking office, notice how all those people who were so fond of Clinton used the race card AGAINST him during the campaign. It's gotten so bad now that many Clinton voters will be supporting McCain and have said so on conservative venues.

Such is the way of some democrats.

So, I don't think that Obama knew at age 17 he would have a serious chance to be president, and to be honest, it's the ignorance of our people as to why he does have a chance. I used to blame the media for being hush-hush on all his radical associations, but it's quite clear to me, Jennifer, that many left-wing Americans are, shall we say, convinced that Marxism is the way to go so that the whole world will be equal.

Makes one sick, doesn't it?

I think that where Obama is dangerous is not in his religion, but with his far-left, fantasy ideology that comes from thinking you know the world because you've been outside the concrete slab of urbanization except to fly inbetween them.

Elists don't often go on country drives, they don't ride their motorccyles on the open highways of the Great Plains, they don't taste the freedom. Many don't know what it's like to have a close relationship with the land by working with it or taking your kids hunting or fishing. Instead, they are spoon-fed garbage in hijacked minority churches or in public universities run by delusional minds who have no clue of what exists outside of the inner city or a country club and resort.

Jeremiah Wright, Rev. Pfleger and Bill Ayers have sucked whatever Muslim traits Obama had left and cast them into the wind. He has become a puppeter, and now the mainstream media and the left elite has gotten in on the act.

Should Obama get elected, these are the folks he will try and please. I don't think he'll throw on a turban and say "gotcha!" during his inaugruation. All I know is that his faith won't impact my vote, which won't be for him or Biden.
