The differences between the late President Reagan and Senator Barack Obama are profound. Ronald Reagan believed in a strong military to back up a foreign policy that would not appease our enemies, such as the Soviet Union. Barack Obama feels that simply having dialogues, without preconditions, with the leaders of Iran and Cuba would be useful. This is just one example in the area defense/foreign policy area. On economic matters, President Reagan believed in the entrepreneural activity, and that a relatively free market would produce the best outcomes for both individual and businesses. Senator Obama believes that our market economy is seriously flawed, and requires substantial government intervention to function. He would achieve these objectives through tax increases(capital gains) and government investment programs(green-collar or environmentally friendly industries)to favored individual or businesses. We have done that sort of investing before. Remember the Reconstruction Finance Corporation during the 1930’s and The Synthetic Fuels Corporation during the late 70’s. Both of these entities represented a huge intrusion into the private sector economy by the federal government, and in the end were unsuccessful and wasteful. In the end, Barack Obama offers nothing new, but rather ancient policy prescriptions wrapped in new syntax.

Obamacan? It goes to show some people are just gullible. Barack Obama is no Ronald Reagan! People who support him could probably care less about his real views, whatever they are. They’re backing a myth, not a flesh and blood human being.

Audacious: What would you know about intelligence? Every time you post something it reeks of a disgraceful level of ignorance and thoughtlessness. Pathetic.

A society get the leadership they deserve. In Obama’s case he is full of c**p and will lead America nowhere. He is promising the moon and likely will deliver on nothing. Good luck to all mindless and clueless who vote for this man. You deserve each other. The media is falling all over him because he is black. Imagine for one minuter if Hillary was connected to some black hating pastor?! How long would she last then? She would be gone in a nanosecond. But in Obama’s case, well, he just shrugs about the comments coming from this pastor as inappropriate. And the media continues to pat him on the back.

He actually had the gaul to lecture us on Race relations. He didn’t condemn or disavow the racist hate mongering preacher(and I use that term with distain) He gave a speech justifying this man’s hate. Hate for whites, women, America, and quite frankly religion. I don’t know who is worse, jeremiah wright, b. hussein o. or the soulless ones flocking to become his martyrs.

As a moslem Obama would approve of hate speech – as long as it isn`t Islam that`s being hated.

From the link provided
“Founded in 2006, Campbell’s organization might well be leading the charge among mutinous Republicans in the online world. He says it has 800 members in 19 states and is growing. On Super Tuesday, Campbell says, the site had 22,000 hits. Now, it gets 1,200 to 1,500 hits a day.”
Count them, a whole 800 and growing.
