Historic, but Bad

It started with the immaculate election.

Irrational exuberance about the election of a black man has caused us to select someone who has vowed to take us in the direction of socialism. He barely tries to argue with that charge.

Obama once called the Constitution a “fundamentally flawed document.” He believes it should be “evolved.” In other words, we should be allowed to interpret the Constitution however we want to, rather than just reading what it says. I don’t know about you, but that sounds VERY bad.

So, while I acknowledge that it’s a stunning achievement as a country to elect a man who 150 years ago wouldn’t have been allowed to vote, it does not justify departing our founding principles.

It’s strange to have such mixed feelings about something like this. I think about what Dr. King would be thinking today if he were alive. I have to believe it’s in large part because of Dr. King that this is even possible. On the other hand, I believe the founding fathers, who believed in limited government and free market capitalism, are turning over in their graves at the things Obama has promised.

God bless America, and God help us.

    If you’re going to mention the forefathers turning in their graves because their concept was a limited government, then I’m pretty sure the last eight years have already got them spinning pretty fast.

    I don’t disagree at all. Bush was a disgrace to the Republican party, and was barely someone who could be construed as a conservative, but for the fact he was pro-life.
