I got this in an email. I am sorry if it has already been posted here. I thought it was interesting...Not saying i agree with it 100% just thought it was something to get your mind going.

Please take the time to read all of this; it is kind of lengthy but well worth the read. It is written by Ken Blackwell. Ken Blackwell is the former Lt. Governor of Ohio, his wife is the superintendent of the Cincinnati schools. He also played pro football with Dallas. Yes, he is black.


written by Ken Blackwell

It's an amazing time to be alive in America. We're in a year of firsts in this presidential election: the first viable woman candidate; the first viable African-American candidate; and, a candidate who is the first frontrunning freedom fighter over 70. The next president of America will be a first.

We won't truly be in an election of firsts, however, until we judge every candidate by where they stand. We won't arrive where we should be until we no longer talk about skin color or gender. Now that Barack Obama steps to the front of the Democratic field, we need to stop talking about his race, and start talking about his policies and his politics.


The reality is this: Though the Democrats will not have a nominee until August, unless Hillary Clinton drops out, Mr. Obama is now the frontrunner, and its time America takes a closer and deeper look at him.

Some pundits are calling him the next John F. Kennedy. He's not. He's the next George McGovern. And it's time people learned the facts.

Because the truth is that Mr. Obama is the single most liberal senator in the entire U.S. Senate. He is more liberal than Ted Kennedy, Bernie Sanders, or Mrs. Clinton. Never in my life have I seen a presidential frontrunner whose rhetoric is so far removed from his record. Walter Mondale promised to raise our taxes , and he lost. George McGovern promised military weakness, and he lost. Michael Dukakis promised a liberal domestic agenda, and he lost.


Yet Mr. Obama is promising all those things, and he's not behind in the polls. Why? Because the press has dealt with him as if he were in a beauty pageant. Mr. Obama talks about getting past party, getting past red and blue, to lead the United States of America. But let's look at the more defined strokes of who he is underneath this superficial "beauty."

Start with national security, since the president's most important duties are as commander-in-chief. Over the summer, Mr. Obama talked about invading Pakistan, a nation armed with nuclear weapons; meeting without preconditions with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who vows to destroy Israel and create another Holocaust; and Kim Jong II, who is murdering and starving his people, but emphasized that the nuclear option was off the table against terrorists - something no president has ever taken off the table since we created nuclear weapons in the 1940s. Even Democrats who have worked in national security condemned all of those remarks. Mr. Obama is a foreign-policy novice who would put our national security at risk.


Finally, look at the social issues. Mr. Obama had the audacity to open a stadium rally by saying, "All praise and glory to God!" but says that Christian leaders speaking for life and marriage have "hijacked" - hijacked - Christianity. He is pro-partial birth abortion, and promises to appoint Supreme Court justices who will rule any restriction on it unconstitutional. He espouses the abortion views of Margaret Sanger, one of the early advocates of racial cleansing. His spiritual leaders endorse homosexual marriage, and he is moving in that direction. In Illinois, he refused to vote against a statewide ban - ban - on all handguns in the state. These are radical left, Hollywood, and San Francisco values, not Middle America values.


The real Mr. Obama is an easy target for the general election. Mrs. Clinton is a far tougher opponent. But Mr. Obama could win if people don't start looking behind his veneer and flowery speeches. His vision of "bringing America together" means saying that those who disagree with his agenda for America are hijackers or warmongers. Uniting the country means adopting his liberal agenda and abandoning any conflicting beliefs.

But right now everyone is talking about how eloquent of a speaker he is and - yes - they're talking about his race. Those should never be the factors on which we base our choice for president. Mr. Obama's radical agenda sets him far outside the American mainstream, to the left of Mrs. Clinton.

It's time to talk about the real Barack Obama. In an election of firsts, let's first make sure we elect the person who is qualified to be our president in a nuclear age during a global civilizational war.


Subject: Kind of scary, wouldn't you think Remember--God is good, and is in His time, on time--every time.

According to The Book of Revelations the anti-christ is: The anti-christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal....the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will destroy everything.

Is it OBAMA??

I STRONGLY URGE each one of you to repost this as many times as you can! Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or media outlet...do it!

If you think I am crazy..Im sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the "unknown" candidate.

Thanks for posting. I believe we have covered this before, and a lot of it is stretched truth or flat-out false. And this:

is incorrect. Seeing that Islam wasn't even founded until well after the bible was written, I don't think the bible actually would say "Muslim" in the text. And I'm pretty sure Revelations doesn't give specifics on the antichrist's age. Really, someone writing this in an actual publicized article is being very irresponsible. (I'm not saying you, I'm saying the person who originally wrote this!)

It is true that Obama's policy and stance on most issues is way to the left. I don't think it's "far outside the mainstream" - I'd reserve a phrase like that for a true radical viewpoint (whether it's from the left or right). But a simple search at OnTheIssues.org gives all the information you need on where he stands, and liberal as it may be he's far from radical on that.

I do agree that the media, until recently, really gave him a pass on the substance-versus-style thing. He is quite charismatic, and it's nice to see so many people inspired by him. And personality-wise I do like him. I just disagree with several of his stances and the things he wants to do as president.

I'm from Ohio, and Cincinnati, and I can tell you that Ken Blackwell WOULD NOT have written that and published it. He's a smart man, and will want to run for higher office later. So even if he *may* have thought some of those things (and I don't know, I'm just saying), he never would have put them down in words.

The part from Revelations and after it are not from Ken Blackwell, but the rest of it is. The original published editorial can be read here:
http://www.townhall.com/Columnists/KenBlac...al_obama?page=2

One paragraph was left out:
Quote:
Next, consider economic policy. For all its faults, our health care system is the strongest in the world. And free trade agreements, created by Bill Clinton as well as President Bush, have made more goods more affordable so that even people of modest means can live a life that no one imagined a generation ago. Yet Mr. Obama promises to raise taxes on the rich. How to fix Social Security? Raise taxes. How to fix Medicare? Raise taxes. Prescription drugs? Raise taxes. Free college? Raise taxes. Socialize medicine? Raise taxes. His solution to everything is to have government take it over. Big Brother on steroids, funded by your paycheck.[/b]

I am so glad you are researching this rather than taking it as Gospel. Cause most of it is lies, but other posters have already covered that.
Instead, I am going to suggest that you copy and paste the following and send it to whoever cursed your inbox with that trash.

Dear Stupid Friend,
Please research your drivel before sending it to me. You have wasted my time and the time of other people who frequent a message board I post on. I think we all lost brain cells reading that and I would suggest that you compensate us by replacing them, but clearly you don't have many to spare.
Love, Someone much much smarter than you.

p.s. The Antichrist? Really? You're not kidding? Ok then.[/b]

Hahaha Thank You Torrie! I was going to post something similar.

I would urge anyone who actually read through that garbage to go to the snopes link above.
