Talking to my husband a bit ago and we started listing the things that we find important that will be in jeopardy if Obama is elected.

Freedom of Speech for conservatives. Whether you listen to him for 15 minutes a day or 3 hours, Rush Limbaugh and Hannity plus all the other guys and girls who are good enough to garner good ratings and advertising will either be silenced or the airwaves will be filled with equal time for liberals who can't sell a necessity like a toothbrush.

Other aspects of speech: the freedom to peddle smut, libel and slander by the elite
and the budgets of NPR and TV will go sky high.

There will be absolutely no restrictions on abortion when he keeps his promise to NARAL and once done, there will be no legal way to rectify it.

Now that Social Security is called a tax those who say conservatives are trying to privatize it will destroy it. There will be no disability insurance, benefits for kids whose parents have died, and all benefits will be predicated on need. It will just be used to pay the 40% of people who pay no taxes at all their allotment and put the remainder in the general welfare pot.

Instead of freedom of religion we will have freedom from religion or the tyranny of the minority ie., the elite who have no "need" for a faith belief/foundation.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg in a 5 minute conversation.

If you're scared, pleeeeeze call your local Republican or McCain headquarters and offer to help out during the next 12 days.

At my age, I'm not only scared, I'm depressed since actuarily there is a distinct possibility that this could be the president in my own endtime. Not to be morbid, but I really don't want to die with a Democrat in the White House.

Help your local activists!!!!

See you tomorrow

How about a few others:
1. "spread the wealth around a little" - anyone care to contribute to me?
2. infantacide - the word even makes me recoil. I am not usually a one issue person, but the extremity of Obama's view on this one is a show stopper. Anyone who would not 100% endorse trying to help a baby who survived an abortion, even by voting "present", does not deserve to lead the greatest country on earth but should be himself cast aside and never see any position of responsibility ever again.
3. global warming - carbon tax, most folks can't understand this, but let it be said that driving your car will cost more than the current $3.50/gal. If you think driving is expensive now, you ain't seen nothing yet. And how arrogant are we to think that we can affect a universal system put in place by God. On top of that, who says that the current status of the earth's climate is the optimum. It has oscillated during the earth's history. Maybe there's a better climate just around the corner (thousands to millions of years for us to see a significant change of any kind).
4. income taxes: a large percentage (35-40%) don't pay them now, along with the few percent who think higher taxes are patriotic (think Old Joe), we are almost at the tipping point when the takers will rule all and can take as much as they want from the givers. Where will Alec Baldwin go when his is confiscated?

The list could go on ad nauseum. There are only a few days left for the country to wake up.
