"We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God." James Madison

Why Barack should not be President

  • The question has been continually asked: What can we expect from Barack Obama? Fellow blogger VIOLENCE WORKER provided this link:


I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.

VW points out that flight was mostly unproven before WWI, and had the Military not seen the potential, where would we be today?

I will not weaponize space

Too late, China already has

I will slow development of future combat systems

Our entire military is around 1.5 million men and women; China for instance is 200 million. If we don't maintain our technological advantage, we are sitting ducks.

I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons and to seek that goal, I will not develop nuclear weapons...

He wants to eliminate Nukes? I suppose then we can assume North Korea won't produce any more, China will cease, India and Pakistan will hand over their arsenal and technology, France will acquiesce, Russia will comply, and any other country that I neglected to list will fall in line as well.

In other words, he will hand us over to our enemies within 1 year. Oh yeah, that is inspirational.
