As a registered Democrat. I didn't really know enough about Sen. Obama to make an educated decision as to why I should cast my vote for him, which lead me to conduct my own research to find out more about who he really was, where he came from and, even more important, what he stands for. I conducted my own research because I have little or no faith in our Main Stream Media (MSM)....What A Shame! After reading the following Amazon.Com Editorial Review and numerous other resources, as a means of educating myself prior to casting my vote, I became concerned about casting my vote for him. AMAZON EDITORIAL REVIEW THAT SPARKED MY CONCERN: The Case Against Barrack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media's Favorite Candidate (Hardcover) by David Freddoso (Author) Review Is Contained On The Following Web Site: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/product-description/1596985666/ref=dp_proddesc_0?ie=UTF8&n=283155&s=books The following Points (1-4), which are NOT all inclusive because they are too numerous to list here, confirm that my concern has some MERIT: POINT #1: Ties to ACCORN. What Makes Obama Run? Lawyer, teacher, philanthropist, and author Barrack Obama doesn't need another career. But he's entering politics to get back to his true passion--community organization.

How Obama Applies Alinsky's Rules By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY | Posted Monday, September 22, 2008 4:20 PM PT Election '08: Barrack Obama's mocking of John McCain, while urging his followers to "get in their face," are tactics right out of his radical hero Saul Alinsky's playbook: ridicule and agitation.

Thursday, October 16, 2008 Article Is Contained On The Following Web Site: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/oct/16/inside-politics-the-new-west/?page=2 BOTTOM LINE: If my concern is, in fact, proven to have MERIT, which, tragically, the American public may NOT even discover until after this election is over and done with, all I can hope and pray for is that my concern is unfounded and, if it is NOT: "Good Bless Our United (Not Divided) States of America." "FOOD FOR THOUGHT"
