I've talked to neighbors, friends, and acquaintances, who say they are going to vote for Obama. The reasons they give sum up to 'he is friendly and he seems one of us.' But some would frown thoughtfully as they said it.
I asked: do you know how his economic plan would affect you? Do you know about his very far left associates? Do you know his political views before he became a candidate? Do you know about ACORN? Answer: not really.
Thanks to the mainstream media, while most Americans can tell you all about Sarah Palin's clothes budget, they don't know much about Obama except in bits and pieces.
It may be late in the game, but one thing is becoming clear. He isn't just an empty suit. Obama does have a point a view. He is, to speak plainly, on the team that unites the Far Left, the Radical Left, Socialists, Marxists, Communists, Black Liberation theologists, Israel haters and resurgent Islamists. They all preach replacement theology, though they have different ideas of the replacement. But they all want to replace how America works and thinks. They want to replace Israel with a state to be called Palestine. With them in power, we Americans will be free to say anything we want -- providing it isn't hateful. And guess who will decide what is hateful?
Obama preaches openness but he hasn't been open about his intentions or his ideology. So we on the Think-Israel staff have composed several essays with information you should have to vote intelligently.
If you agree these issues are important, please don't delay. Use the next few hours to educate your friends and family. Feel free to send these articles to your email lists. You will find much additional information on the Think-Israel Blog-Ed pages for recent months.
