My Good Friend Prefers Obama... by Merwin
My good friend’s name will not be disclosed here, I will simply call him “Bob”.
He recently had posted a “Status” on Facebook that began this crazy exchange that has me wondering about a lot of things, but mostly… what is the hold this POTUS has on the minds of his followers? I mean I really, really like Ron Paul, but, if he betrayed, just a few of the very mandates (promises that got him elected) I would no longer support him.
One thing I ask you to bear in mind, I am done trying to persuade anyone regarding politics, especially on Facebook. People will vote for whomever… and I have decided that the only political postings that I will “share” or compose on FB will be in how it relates to these last days and the imminent return of Jesus. My comments on “Bob’s” status were not intended to sway him from Obama, but to cause him to see the corrupted nature of things in general.
Below is our Facebook exchange…
Bob’s Status posting…
Governor Romney has a plan for the economy, the deficit, the debt, social security, medicare, medicaid and healthcare.
Can you say "BAIT and SWITCH"?
My reply (which got turned into a Hub)…
BAIT and SWITCH..?
You know... Once upon a time, I didn't use to know what Political "BAIT and SWITCH" was. That is of course until Nixon came along and introduced me to the term, then Papa Bush came along and refined my understanding. Then of course Baby Bush elevated the phrase to B & S 101. But the absolute PHD Professor and Dean of Corrections when it comes to my education for that phrase, has been Obama...
With all the Charisma this guy had while campaigning, and the anti-war rhetoric he was spouting, and the promises for CHANGE of the way an UN-transparent Washington does business... I came VERY CLOSE to voiting for him. Instead, I wrote in Alan Keyes (did not know much of Ron Paul), but, I came very, very close because I really, really liked Obama.
The very sad thing is... I don't believe that Mitt Obamney is going to be any better. I do expect to see Federally enforced Martial Law, and the FEMA Detention (concentration) Camps being filled and a lot of citizens murdered in the next term, no matter which of these two candidates get elected,
They both are puppets of the World Central Banking Machinery. They are simply go-fers for the Corporatocracy. Can we get real about our Presidential expectations..? "YES WE CAN."
Bob’s return comments…
Merwin, I agree with Half of that.
I think Obama has moved from idealism to realism. America isn't ready for the man I thought he was.
Maybe (likely that) he never was "the man (you) thought he was".
Rom 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
The onliest reason for me to even think that Ron Paul could have been (sort of) trusted is his decades long record of NOT breaking campaign promises, not taking wages above the national average pay, returning the full pensions sent to him when he retired the first time, on record for never voting for deficit spending... or against the Constitution, and the fact that lobbyists don't even bother to give him a visit.
I may have hoped a little too much But, even with RP's integrity, I prefer Obama's direction over his.
My final comment…
RP (with integrity) says bring our military home, and quit killing people on a global scale, and my PACIFIST good friend prefers a LYING WAR MONGER..???
Its official... I officially don't get it and I am done.
