Are the latecomer Obama supporters really sheep?
Dear Texas and Ohio - Save Us!!!
Social behavior norms show that we often imitate others' actions when making choices with limited information about what's best. What is at stake in this situation is that imitators' uninformative choices are trumped by real data. The real data is actually very little data. Data that does not provide much of a record at all for Barack Obama's 'community activism'. Obama's 'community' Hyde Park, is actually one of the most affluent districts in Chicago, set among mansions on beautifully manicured lawns.
There are many resources to obtain information about Obama's record or lack-thereof than this article has sufficient time to provide. What this article seeks to do is raise questions. It seeks to raise questions quick and raise a sign to STOP!, take a breathe for the voters of Texas and Ohio. The voters there have the time to stop and think before they make the same mistakes as the masses in other states. They have time to ponder whether this 'Obamamania' truly makes sense or if it has just taken on a life of its own.
There was a late twenty-something LA Times contributor (and Obama supporter) on the news the other day admitting that it has become a bit of a cult and Obama could never fulfill such high expectations. What was most disturbing though was that he said "if you had to choose a cult to be part of though, this one sure is fun.". Is this what the most important US election in many of our lives is about? Fun? TEXAS and OHIO - is this the kind of bandwagon you want to jump aboard?
Too many people just like that man-boy are becoming sheep. They are feeding right into the hands of the SHEEPHERDERS behind this wagon ride. A large percentage of usually apathetic voters are supporting Obama simply because they think it is fun to be a part of this giant club. Many of them admitting there is no way Obama can deliver what he promises speech after speech! Are these the people who should be making such serious decisions on behalf of the entire country?
Of course, there are supporters who truly believe in Obama more so than the young, white male looking for something 'fun' to do. OPRAH WINFREY made her first political endorsement of her career; most likely in the years to come, it will also be recognized as the biggest mistake of her illustrious and epic career. Nevermind that Oprah enthusiastically embraced a male, 50% white, 50% African-American candidate, who sells himself on the coattails of Hillary Clinton's similar policies. She disregarded the legacy of all of her past messages which inspired millions.
Oprah, a role-model for women spanning the entire globe, chose him over the 1st American female presidential candidate, when she could have done the right thing and not chosen to endorse any candidate at all. Her choice was a slap in the face to all of the women who live as second and third-class citizens around the world. Winfrey's choice was such an irresponsible misstep and so hypocritical to the entire foundation of her career that the fallout may eventually become something her career will never quite recover from. Her legacy is forever damaged and she will no longer be the hero she once was to so many young girls and women.
All of this to endorse a black man who has no record of doing anything even remotely substantial for the black communities of Illinois and no real connection to the black community at large? And she chose to say this not about race or gender. But how can it not be when Obama, himself, continually enforces the notion that he and Hillary are actually very similar? If they are so similar, does one think Oprah still would have endorsed Obama if he were 100% white?
Voters need to get their heads out of the grass and start thinking for themselves. Start asking questions; the right questions are a good place to start. Many of you will be surprised and disapointed at many of the answers.
Hopefully, Texas and Ohio have the intelligence and insight to rise above the herds of sheep circling them at the moment. Please pass this message along to help them save us!
