DISCLAIMER: Although I disagree with almost all of President Elect Barack Obama's proposed policies, this post is not about that. It is about how the American NEWS MEDIA are manipulating and brainwashing people and electing our officials. So please, keep all comments more towards the NEWS COVERAGE of the election and campaigns and not of why you supported/voted for a particular candidate.
If you or someone you know supported/voted for President Elect Barack Obama during this last election...ask yourself why?
Besides "hope" and "change," what did he have to offer that anyone else in the country couldn't have offered?
The following link discusses the results of a poll by a MAJOR national poll conductor, John Zogby. http://www.howobamagotelected.com
These results show less about the intelligence or point-of-views of the people and tell more about the NEWS COVERAGE that they were exposed to. While I encourage everyone to do their own research on topics of politics, many people don't have the time and just rely on the average news media. The results are shown in that poll and are frightening.
What do people really know about President Elect Obama? Why was he deemed presidential while Gov. Sarah Palin was vilified as being grossly inexperienced? Gov. Palin had MUCH more executive experience than Pres. Elect Obama did and they both had about the same time in a position of elected power, so why was she presented as inexperienced while he wasn't? President Elect Barack Obama was sworn in to the US Senate on January 4, 2005 and began his campaign for president in February of 2007. During the last two of his meager three years in the US Senate, Barack Obama only performed about 40% of his duties as a Senator due to his campaigns. So, again, what was it that really qualified him and what experience did he really have?
Why weren't ANY of his legitimate scandals reason enough to disqualify him for running while just ONE would preclude almost everyone else from even coming close to the White House? Why was Gov. Palin's pregnant daughter more of an issue than Barack Obama's ties to criminal slum lord Tony Rezko or the unrepentant terrorist William Ayers?
Would any of you vote for or support someone who went to a KKK rally even once? I sure as hell know I
wouldn't, yet millions supported Barack Obama who sat in a Church that taught views as radical as the KKK's for twenty years listening to hate speech and such claims that "the [American government] lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color," ( a view which he continues to support http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvL9dLeDcSU
). The church leader who is spouting such hate is a man that Pres. Elect Obama considered like an uncle to him.
The following two links show how different News organizations covered the election. Why are ANY news
organizations presenting unbalanced views of a political campaign rather than the straight facts?http://pewresearch.org/pubs/1011/color-of-news-coveragehttp://journalism.org/node/13307
This issue is NOT about REPUBLICAN vs. DEMOCRAT, it is about the media controlling who we vote for and more importantly how we think. Think about the issues and ask yourself did ANY of the four candidates live up to your standards for leader of the most powerful nation ever? Do you feel any of them had the morals and judgment to be leaders of the free world?
So I ask you, America: Who elected the President of the United States this year and who will elect the President four years from now?
Folks, don't let your freedoms be taken away slowly. Don't blindly believe what your friends, family, TV or teachers tell you. "Trust but verify." Stay informed and get involved.
