Say Goodbye to Freedom

If we elect Barack Obama in November, start getting used to seeing little bits and pieces of your freedom disappear.

Believe it.

Pitching his message to Oregon’s environmentally-conscious voters, Obama called on the United States to “lead by example” on global warming, and develop new technologies at home which could be exported to developing countries.

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said.

“That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added.

And don’t think the guy won’t try to pull this off. Of course, he won’t succeed, but still – to think that someone who is running for president can suggest that Americans give up their freedom to spend what they want to purchase what they want; to eat what we want and to keep our houses heated to whatever level of comfort we want…it’s…Un-American.

Say “NO” to Obama, or get used to the government sleeping in your bed.

    Are you kidding? After 8 years of Bush shredding the Constitution, you’re arguing that electing someone who taught Constitutional law at one of America’s top law schools (University of Chicago) will see us less free?

    The freedom of lifestyle choice to which you refer will not be forced on us by Obama, it will be forced on us by increasing global competition for increasingly scarce resources. Increasing demand for oil, metals, food, etc. + static or decreasing supply = rising prices. Higher prices will curtail our spending on SUVs, home heating, and the rest of our lifestyle, no matter who is President. We made this bed via globalization and outsourcing, now it’s time to lie in it.

    And regarding our ‘freedom’ to live an energy-inefficient lifestyle, is that what the definition of ‘freedom’ has become to Conservatives these days? Our lifestyle? You guys need to stop drinking Madison Ave’s koolaid and get some perspective. Using military force to preserve our lifestyle, as opposed to our Constitutional freedoms, is morally wrong.

    The real threat to the latter is domestic – politicans and punditguys who don’t know, understand, or value the actual freedoms the Constitution enumerates. Do you honestly think our inalienable, God-given rights include the right to spend what we want, to purchase what we want, to eat what we want and to keep our houses heated to whatever level of comfort we want? Do you think God really cares about that shit, when there’s so much *real* suffering and oppression in the world?

    If the above is what passes for your idea of punditry, you should change your name to VillageIdiotGuy.

  3. It just blows my mind at how the people of this Nation can be so Willfully forgetfull and almost STUPID about it. If We the People had our senses about us we would have raised up in rebellion some years back and sent G.W. back home crying to his Mama. Now, there is no way too get this country back to what our For Fathers had in mind.

    Whatever the reasoning we are in a mess and screaming about Obama taking our freedoms is inane. Our dear Learder has done that aready taken way more than We the People realize.

    People keep touting about how free a Nation we are. Sorry Folks!!! We haven’t been a free Nation sense 9-11-01. We lost all of our rights and freedom that day. It is just slowly being broadcast abroad so that Everybody knows enstead of just our Leaders knowing it.

    I was Bred, Born and Raised Republican, if you weren’t one or voted as one you were going to Hell because being a Democrat or voting as one just wasn’t Christian. And I don’t trust Our Political Leaders anymore than I trust The Religous Leaders.

    Think back to pre 9-11 and you will realize that The Whole Nation has Gone Strange. The Left is farther left, the Right is farther right and the Established Church has gone STUPID. As everything is trying too go down the drain, the Established Church is Oh So BUSY judging the world for the same things She is doing and consigning all the SINNERS too hell. And Oh So Looking For A Rapture to get them out of the mess of things they have helped to create.

    So!, no Obama Isn’t going too take any more of our freedoms than G.W. has taken. Or Bill Clinton for that matter. All of our Leaders have taken liberties and signed Documents before they left office that has left us a little less of a free people until we are hear today at a time when OUR PRES. says “you can be held as long as someone of your trusted law inforcement department wants too hold you and you don’t have too be given a reason as to why you are being held. SO SHUT YOUR MOUTH. YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS!”.

    Now tell all of us what Obama is going too take away from us. Please? If there is anything you can come up with.

    What do we have left after this nightmare Bush Administration to take away???? Our environment is near destruction, our schools have been ravaged, there is still a tidal wave of jobs flowing over our borders to other countries, our phonecalls/emails/letters are no longer private, etc. etc. etc. Can you really be so blind or dumb to think that this charismatic man will take more from us? I am praying that he gets in, not because he’s african american (which is a plus in my book), not because he is much more intelligent than the other candidates, not because he also brings a smart/sharp/strong first lady with him, but because he has not lost the dream that we can achieve. He inspires, and that is huge.

  5. You Obama supporters are a bunch of idots!!!! I can’t believe you want someone who hates our country to run our country. You might like what he says, but too bad everything he says is a pack of lies. If you trust this lying, phony, people-pleaser, then you need to find your brain that left your head a long time ago.

  6. We should ALL be ashamed of ourselves for demanding such freedom as our forfathers had. This is a different time, and this country neeeds a change. We are no better people than those in any other country. If those people can survive,and enjoy their way of life as they have it then who are we to complain about our freedom. We should ALL give up our Freedom and Liberties and SUPPORT our Government so that our Government will (IN THE APPOINTED TIME)… take care of US. Freedom is just a word, and it will soon be forgotten. Stop the FREEDOM and you will Stop the waste. Waste of money, waste of fuel, waste of food etc.

Speak Your Mind
