We Don’t Have to Rely on False Stories for this Presidential Election, The Record Speaks for Itself.

So I got the following email today…

Forward this as received, but without comment.
Yes, he told us in advance what he planned to do. Few were listening.
The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised “Meet The Press’.
From Sunday’s 07 Sept. 2008 11 : 48 : 04 EST, Televised “Meet the Press” THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.
General Bill Gann’ USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn’t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171…
During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, “Stand and Face It”.
‘Senator Obama replied :
“As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides”. “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression..” “The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing.”
Obama continued : “The National Anthem should be ‘swapped’ for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing’. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as ‘redesign’ our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails – - – perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ……”
When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations ofIslam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past”.
“Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country’s First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America ”
Yes, you read it right.
I, for one, am speechless!!!

It turns out that this email is not reflecting what really happened and was not taken from his words, but was taken from a satirical article by an author…

In any regards however, one does not need fabricated articles to know what is really in the mind of the current president.  He now has 4 years of action that we can draw from.  Right now, policies that he has put into place are taking this country over the cliff.  The good news is that we don’t have to continue down that road.  What we can stop the current momentum by voting in another candidate into office, and hold this candidate accountable for their actions just as much as we are holding Obama accountable for his actions.

It is time for the citizens to take their government back and not allow themselves to be patronized that the government knows better, because it doesn’t.  You know what is best for your life, and that is what this country was founded on.  The more and more we let the government determine our rights, freedoms and lifestyle, the more creativity, ingenuity and free spiritedness we lose.

I’m not voting for Romney because I agree with all his policies…. personally the Republican party should have done this country right and voted in a better candidate to go against Obama, but this what we have for now and what we have to choose from.

Let’s hold Romney accountable for reversing this health care act and the patriot act as starters.  The more freedoms we have, the more prosperous (truly prosperous – without being morally bankrupt) we can be as a nation.
