Who will you be voting for?

Barry Soetoro, or Barack Obama? Who is he really? Curious Americans want to know.

An Obama Win Will Be More Than Historic
By THOMAS SOWELL Posted Thursday, October 30, 2008 4:30 PM PT

Some elections are routine, some are important and some are historic. If Sen. John McCain wins this election, it will probably go down in history as routine. But if Sen. Barack Obama wins, it is more likely to be historic — and catastrophic.
While most of you slept, I googled my way through a myriad of blogs and news sources trying to see if anyone was trying to refute the allegations of Indonesian citizenship by Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Hussein Obama. All I could find were the profane rantings of people who dislike the fact it has been brought to light. I for one think this is something to address before tomorrow. If Obama wins will we have someone who is a citizen by birth, or a foreign national?

I must put in a plug for those who comment on this blog. Thanks for not getting profane in your commenting. I post everything that expresses an opinion with some supporting verbiage. I will not post anything with language I consider inappropriate for any viewer to read. Pappy

I don't approve of political jokes.
I've seen too many of them get elected.

The Coming Obama Thugocracy Attempts to shut down political speech have become routine for liberals. By Michael Barone

‘I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors,” Barack Obama told a crowd in Elko, Nev. “I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.” Actually, Obama supporters are doing a lot more than getting into people’s faces. They seem determined to shut people up.

Once upon a time, liberals prided themselves, with considerable reason, as the staunchest defenders of free speech. Union organizers in the 1930s and 1940s made the case that they should have access to employees to speak freely to them, and union leaders like George Meany and Walter Reuther were ardent defenders of the First Amendment.

Today’s liberals seem to be taking their marching orders from other quarters. Specifically, from the college and university campuses where administrators, armed with speech codes, have for years been disciplining and subjecting to sensitivity training any students who dare to utter thoughts that liberals find offensive. The campuses that used to pride themselves as zones of free expression are now the least free part of our society.
