I don’t mean that in the sense that he is a good guy, or a politician I support, or someone I admire because Barack Obama isn’t any of those things. He is the man in the sense that Barack Hussein Obama has locked the Democratic nomination. The writing is on the wall and the wrangling that is still going on is a pointless waste of time. Barack is the dude who will be running against John “2013″ McCain for leadership of this rudderless ship we all share called the United States of America. I am sure Hillary Clinton will play some sort of prominent role in the new administration should Obama find himself elected.
I once thought that the worst thing that could happen to the United States would be Hillary Clinton as President. I’m not really in that mindset any longer. A Barack Obama presidency won’t be significantly different from what we could have expected under the reign of Hillary Clinton. Although I have a strong personal dislike for Ms. Clinton and I cringe and feel like ranting every time I hear her grating, ego laden voice on my car radio, the broad goals of either individual are the same – a socialist nation where the common them is mediocrity. John McCain would lead us down the same path if given the opportunity.
I envision a time when the United States finds itself in the situation Mexico is in today. Instead of guarding our borders against those who want to come here for the myriad opportunities we will be guarding them against those who want to escape in order to be able to make their own choices.
And that is the only key point you need to know about all three of these powermongers: Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John McCain have one common theme – they want to make choices on your behalf. A life bereft of choices is a life without joy. Remember that on election day.
All you can count on if you vote Democrat or Republican is fewer choices in the coming four years.
