Voters Can Still Wake Up: Corruption Defining Barack Obama’s Campaign

October 16, 2008

Strapped to a polygraph on national TV, I would assert quite confidently that I would strongly condemn thuggish and criminal tactics by a candidate I supported. The ends do not justify the means for me and most other conservatives I know. I wish I believed the same were true for liberals, far too many of whom are deliberately turning their backs on the corruption defining Barack Obama‘s campaign.

It would be bad enough if the Stalinesque stench engulfing the messiah’s campaign were limited merely to its efforts to elect him. But what we fear is that these campaign tactics are of a piece with his policy agenda and his vision for America.

Sincerely intending no melodrama here, it’s hard not to conclude that Mr. Obama aims to change America in fundamental ways, the common denominator of which would be to diminish individual liberties, the most distinguishing feature of the unique American system. Sad to say, most Obama supporters have no clue what he ultimately is about or how his innocuous-sounding ideas could permanently destroy our freedoms.

It’s inconceivable that even a low-level Republican candidate could have Mr. Obama’s associations and employ his campaign tactics without being driven from the race. Yet we have a man running for the highest office in the land surrounded with anti-American allies and covert election burglars, all protected by an unprecedented mainstream media cover-up.

Democrats tell us they place the highest possible value on the integrity of the election process, yet their uniform response to ACORN‘s systematic assault on the voter registration process is unmitigated indifference and denial.

They also cavalierly dismiss Mr. Obama’s undeniable connection to ACORN, as detailed by Mark Levin at “The Corner” blog on National Review Online. Mr. Obama worked for and represented ACORN and has given $800,000 to it from his campaign. Remember how Democrats were ready to hang Republican politicians who might have gone to lunch with lobbyist pariah Jack Abramoff? You want to talk to me about guilt by association? But Mr. Obama’s deep associations with corrupt people and organizations don’t so much as flicker the liberal eyebrow.
