Worth Reading

Call me crazy (you will have company), but I believe this presidential election will be a referendum on leftism. Not since 1980 has there been such a clear difference in ideology between the two candidates. That is not to say that McCain is another Reagan. He is not. McCain has accepted conservative ideology because he must. Obama, on the other hand, is clearly hard-left, even radical, in his ideology and alliances. This is in spite of his protestations to the contrary. At least Walter Mondale was honest, admitting openly that he would raise taxes.

Dear Leader gets so much covering fire from the mainstream media, such as the glossing over of his "spread the wealth around" comment. But even alleged democrats like Orson Scott Card are sickened by their lack of integrity and intellectual honesty. To wit: The coverage of the Fannie/Freddie nonsense, and the #2 money man, Dear Leader Chairman Maobama himself:

Now let's follow the money ... right to the presidential candidate who is the number two recipient of campaign contributions from Fannie Mae.

And after Franklin Raines, the CEO of Fannie Mae who made $90 million while running it into the ground, was fired for his incompetence, one presidential candidate's campaign actually consulted him for advice on housing.

If that presidential candidate had been John McCain, you would have called it a major scandal and we would be getting stories in your paper every day about how incompetent and corrupt he was.

But instead, that candidate was Barack Obama, and so you have buried this story, and when the McCain campaign dared to call Raines an "adviser" to the Obama campaign "because that campaign had sought his advice" you actually let Obama's people get away with accusing McCain of lying, merely because Raines wasn't listed as an official adviser to the Obama campaign.

You would never tolerate such weasely nit-picking from a Republican.

Please read his article. It may change your mind if you honestly believe that both presidential candidates are getting even treatment.

Now that you understand mainstream media has abandoned all journalistic standards of truth and fair reporting, read Charles Krauthammer's article on why McCain needs your vote.

Are you a "moderate" who is still "undecided?" Do you believe in the theory "from each, according to his ability, to each according to his need"? Do you believe in equality? Do the rich need to pay?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above, stay home and sort your socks on election day.

Equality is a bowl of rice and a sleeping mat.
