Tonight I’m prayin’ for McCain and Palin. Even though I’ve never been a fan of John McCain, I know he’ll govern as a moderate, and preserve what has made America the greatest nation the world has ever known. Canada thrives as America’s peaceful next-door neighbour and top trading partner; a weakened America is of absolutely no benefit to Canada.
There’s no doubt in my mind, Barack Obama would weaken America economically, militarily, and morally. Stanley Kurtz, the National Review journalist who has singlehandedly done more investigative reporting on Obama than the rest of the American media combined, has him pegged with his final pre-election column: his heart is with the revolution; his tactics are pure Alinsky; and his actions show a patient, pragmatic radical leftist, ready to implement a hard-core agenda one step at a time.
I have no doubt that Obama will sell out Israel. Blogger Omri Ceren shows us why Obama-supporting Jews are delusional. On the flip-side, I have no doubt McCain and Palin will support Israel with force, if necessary.
As a business owner who owes his livelihood to the middle-American market, I worry that the economy will only get worse under Obama. Plenty has been written about the stock market’s reaction to an Obama lead in the polls as election day has approached; his tax plans, big-government ideology, redistributionist philosophy, and his would-be supermajority with leftist Democratic congressional leadership, are a big reason why the market has stayed down on the mat, and consumer discretional spending has ground to a halt – people are holding tight to their wallets as they wait to see if Uncle Barry will be reaching in for a little wealth-spreading in the coming months. Mark my words: there will be a massive relief rally in both the stock market, and in consumer confidence, if McCain wins the election. In an Obama-Pelosi-Reid America, I worry about my livelihood.
On moral issues, there’s simply nothing to be said, other than: Sarah Palin gets it, and America will be spiritually rewarded with her as VP. In the days before John McCain made his VP pick, all he would say to the press was, “my pick will be someone who shares my values.” The pick of Governor Palin gives me great faith in John McCain’s values. Barack Obama can’t even bring himself to support laws protecting live-born babies who survive botched abortions.
In 2000, I barely followed politics at all. In 2004, I followed the election closely, and was confident right to the end that Bush would beat Kerry. My logic four years ago was: America couldn’t possibly elect a Northeastern pseudo-intellectual snob as its president. My logic today is: America couldn’t possibly elect a Hyde Park radical, pseudo-intellectual socialist as its president. Prediction: McCain wins Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and the White House, with approximately 285 electoral votes.
At least, I’m prayin’.
