With that said, here is my question. Can someone appreciate the moment and fear it at the same time? Let me explain. I think Barack Obama is a fascinating man. I believe if I ever got a chance to talk with him, it would probably go down as a highlight of my life. With him being a constitutional law professor and me interested in constitutional law, I would probably learn a lot from him. My issue with Obama is his political ideas. Ideas like wealth distribution, universal health care, sitting down with our enemies without conditions. There are many more but those are the top ones. He as a record of supporting policies that scream socialism, and believes the United Nation should have more control of our armed services. These policies scare me. I believe Capitalism works if the government stays out the way. I believe government should be small and military strong. I believe in the sovereignty of America and believe the UN is not looking out for our best interest. I truly believe with Obama a President and a Democrat majority in Congress, America may be heading down a path we may not be able to recover from.
When January 20th 2009 arrives and Barack Obama becomes the 44th President of the United States, I like the rest of the African American community will have a since of pride and know we are witnessing history. I also will be looking on in concern because if Obama gets to enact some of his more extreme policies I fear America’s best days may have past us by.
