Don’t put your values on me

A message to Senator Obama; don’t put your values on me.

Last Friday’s remarks made by Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama have given us a glimpse into how he views a great deal of his fellow countrymen, especially those who do not reside in the enlightened areas on both coasts and in the large metropolises. It seems if you are not one of Obama’s enlightened urban liberals, you are a bitter, frustrated, anti-immigrant, religious, gun nut.

It is rare in an election year for a candidate to come out and tell the American electorate just how he feels about them. So let me rephrase the Senator's comment so we common, rural folk can understand what he thinks of us.

All your life you have been waiting for Washington DC politicians to make your life better and it hasn’t happened. When all the big government promises didn’t come true, you became angry and began to cling to other things to make you feel better. You started clinging to religion and guns and started blaming ‘those people’ for your problems. In short, you poor, ignorant rubes, you can’t help yourself, your just too dumb to see how electing democrats will allow you to throw off this yolk of God and self reliance. If only you were smart enough, if only you were sent to wealthy private schools and attended Harvard like I did, you would see how more government, more taxes, open borders, and liberal ideals will make you happy.

Senator Obama, as one of the slack jawed, vacant eyed, unwashed masses, allow me to retort.

Senator, I worship Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior, I am not a very good Christian, but the last thing I am clinging to is religion. I believe in the entire Constitution of the United States, including the second amendment. Out here in the country, we know it may take a while for law enforcement to come to our aid, the right to own and to be proficient in the proper use of firearms is not just a luxury, it is a necessity. I am not anti-immigrant, far from it, I wish the US would make it easier for more people to legally enter our country, learn the language and quickly become citizens. What I don’t want is amnesty for the 15–20 million illegal aliens inside the US while we get promises of a border fence. Secure the border first, and then come talk to me about giving legal status to those already here.

Finally Senator, the average American worker will do just fine without you in the White House. I know it’s hard for you to imagine, but before you came along offering the elixir of ‘change’ and ‘hope’, we managed to build the best nation on this planet. By the way, liberal socialism is change, but it doesn’t offer much hope.

Welcome Daily Democrat readers, I hope this isn't the last post the editor allows me to write.

What do you think, am I right? Am I full of beans?

Tell me what you think.

I did tell you what I thought and you didn't post the comment! Guess you conservatives can dish it out but can't take it! Yee haw!

That's funny, I don't screen my comments, I wouldn't how if I wanted to.

You seem to be able to comment, so by all means, flame away.

Flame on! Are you done yet? Don't make me break out the charcoal!
