It is my belief that as human individuals, we are born into this world with natural rights that are inviolate; Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Property or Happiness which has been expressed eloquently by Thomas Jefferson. Anything less puts us in the status of slaves, indentured servants and farm animals. My impetus for this blog is to serve as the clarion call to others, like minded or not, that our freedom is at stake in a world of increasing collectivism.
Chuck Hagel was critical of McCain for the comment. Since when is telling the truth wrong? Of course Obama will feign turning the other cheek and taking the higher road. I call it the rope a dope. Obama will go negative after the convention, and closer to the election. At this point, I think the election is still Obama's to lose, but the question I have is, why isn't it a slam dunk? As much as people are disgruntled with the economy, with immigration, and the republican party, vis a vis the democrats dominating the house, why aren't they behind Obama more than the polls show? My guess is while they want something different, they don't trust him. Right now they are looking for leadership from the right, and it's up to McCain to pick up the gauntlet and do it. The question is, will he?
