In a New York Times June 29th op-ed, “Anxious in America”, Thomas Friedman mulled over America’s accelerating dilemmas in Iraq, national debt and who might become the next president.
Either choice scares the daylights out of Americans on both sides. Neither candidate understands average citizens’ dilemmas in their jobs, communities or schools. Neither addresses what happens in the trenches of America.
Thus, most Americans vote against the other guy instead of ‘for’ a presidential candidate. In the case of McCain, he represents past paradigms, unending support for an endless Iraq War, old thinking and non-action or in-action.
Obama scares most folks as to his lack of experience, his association with “God D*** America” spewing Pastor Wright, shady-hoodlum Rezko in Chicago and his wife’s racial bias writings at Harvard against white America.
Both Obama and McCain voted to give amnesty to 20-30 million illegal aliens in 2007—without any understanding of the $3 trillion price tag or demographic impact. Both men did nothing and do nothing to stop illegal alien migration at over one million annually. In fact, McCain signed the 1986 amnesty giving 4.3 million illegal aliens a free pass, but never followed up on his promise to secure our borders. Both men voted to double current annual immigration at 1.2 million people to 2.4 million in the amnesty bill in June of 2007—thus causing a catastrophic population overload within the USA. Based on mathematics alone, this kind of short sightedness bodes poorly for a national leader.
Neither man supports any kind of a plan to secure our nation’s borders. Both men continued voting for insourcing, outsourcing and offshoring of American manufacturing jobs. Both crippled Americans with their votes in the U.S. Senate as to our national debt, $700 billion annual trade deficit, and no action on 400,000 annual anchor babies gaining immediate citizenship and welfare. Both men continued the taxpayer burden of educating millions of illegal alien children along with billions for health care. Neither man spoke up for American citizens as to jobs being stolen or wages degraded.
