• He is against parental consent and notification laws and favors what can only be called infanticide—continually opposing legislation that would require medical treatment and food for children born alive with disabilities after a failed abortion. I fear more brutality on the unborn and more erosion of the value of human life.
I fear universal healthcare, a system that will run like Cook County Hospital in Chicago where patients wait for hours, get lousy care and—if and when they are seen—have little recourse for the way they are treated. Government healthcare puts you at the mercy of government: no alternative if medicines or procedures are denied and no recourse if doctors botch a surgery or when patients are neglected by incompetent nurses. I fear “equality” in a system like that—we will all get equally marginal care. Managed care and HMOs will look like heaven compared to this.
I fear the loss of free speech. I am concerned talk radio and independent news sources will be regulated to the point that they are effectively silenced. I fear more cases like that of Crystal Dixon, Associate Vice President for Human Resources at Toledo University, who was recently fired for writing a column as a private citizen, making the case as an African American that homosexuality cannot be equated to race in a civil rights debate. Barack Obama has been heralded by award-winning gay journalist, Andrew Sullivan, because he embraces expanded homosexual rights through ENDA and the punishment of those who would be “intolerant” to this lifestyle through hate crimes legislation. I fear those who oppose the homosexual moral and political agenda will be further punished. I fear his embrace of homosexual marriage and the consequences to children and society.
I fear the influence of radicals like William Ayers, formerly of the Weather Underground. I fear that, in addition to his desire to violently overthrow the United States Government, his endorsement of “Queering Elementary Education” will become more prevalent in public schools. I fear children will become further prey to the sexual agenda by those that will settle for nothing less than indoctrination into sexual activity as early and as often as possible.
I fear racial vengeance. I don’t believe Barack Obama has sat at the feet of the hate-filled black racial bigot Jeremiah Wright without having sympathy for his poisonous diatribes. He may agree that white America deserves some sort of payback.
I fear an expansion of the graft and corruption that so represents Cook County and Chicago politics, his training ground. It drains resources, rewards scoundrels and brings destruction—both economic and personal—to all.
I fear economic collapse from a politically inexperienced orator who does not love the free market, but socialism, who seeks justice and “fairness” that, translated, means taking from some and giving it to those he perceives deserve it more. I am concerned that the poor will be poorer and that “equality” will mean all will be poorer—regardless of effort or merit.
I fear the loss of our national identity thru the flood of more illegal immigration already championed by Obama, draining resources and creating further burden on the educational and healthcare systems.
I fear the distortion of the true meaning of following Christ. I fear soaring rhetoric that elevates man and promises a “kingdom right here on earth,” and, rather than acknowledging our depravity, seeks to accommodate it.
What is it I am afraid of if Barack Obama becomes President of the United States? All of this and more. Maybe the chickens really will soon come home to roost. But when they do, we can’t say we haven’t invited a presidential fox into the henhouse.
