Obama’s record is too extreme

Dear Editor,

Have you looked at the liberal blogs on the internet as they dream of an Obama presidency? It’s pretty scary stuff. The homosexual community, especially, is simply salivating at what may be about to occur in our country if America doesn’t awaken.

It’s the moral issues that should be of primary importance to a nation who shares the faith of its founding fathers. Not only is Obama on the political fringe on the issue of marriage but he has staked out perhaps the most extreme stance possible on abortion. In Illinois he even failed to support legislation that would render life-saving medical care to babies that are born alive as a result of a botched abortion attempt. That is nothing short of infanticide.

And on the economic front, Barack Obama said we need to “spread the wealth around.”

That spells death for free market capitalism, the God-given genius of American prosperity. It isn’t by accident that the Soviet Union failed.

The system was totally immoral.

With a rubber stamp congress that may well include a filibuster-proof Senate (if Mark Warner gets elected) “O” can be assured of countless sweeping legislative successes that will so dramatically alter the American landscape that she may never again reflect her former self.

Those bloggers were very aware that perhaps the greatest prize will be the ability to mold society into their image through the tremendous influence of the Supreme Court. This dramatic societal shift will be enormously enhanced by Obama’s promise not to appoint strict constructionist judges, those who would refrain from judicial activism.

Yes, they’re drooling that finally traditional American values based on a Judeo-Christian ethic, stand poised to be swept into the trash heap of history. Perhaps this is why Bible scholars don’t see the U.S. as playing a prominent role in end-times prophecy. God wants “change,” too. He wants to see America become a God-fearing nation again. What will it take?
