I'm going to voice what is most likely a very unpopular and un-politically correct opinion. I'll probably offend many people, but sometimes that is the bi product of the truth. I've been battling frustration over this year's election and the polls thus far. This election shouldn't even be close. McCain should be winning by a landslide, yet he is slipping in the polls. What the hell is going on? I've come to the conclusion that Obama supporters generally fall in one of two camps.
Camp number one: the voters who truly believe that we should become a socialist country. I can't tell those voters how to believe...that is why we have elections. I strongly disagree with socialist theory for America. My brother will argue this with me until he is blue in the face. He's been to Denmark(and all over Europe) and thinks it's the perfect model country. I agree that it works well for them, but would fail in a country as large as ours with such deep roots is capitalism(not a dirty word). But I digress. To this camp, I say "to each his own". This group of voters doesn't scare me. There just aren't enough of them to make a difference.
Camp number two: this is the big one. The UNEDUCATED. So this is what no one will say for fear of offending: Do you know why Obama is targeting the lower class (and middle class) as his key voters? Do you? Because the majority are uneducated. They don't normally follow politics. They don't research it. They hear the ads on tv, they listen to the biased media and they blindly believe what they are told. This is the group that scares me... there are so many of them out there.
So what can be done? I'm not sure at this point. I watched the debate and there were blatant lies from Obama. He changes he opinion, his rhetoric and his "friends" depending on who he is talking to and what will benefit him the most. It's obvious to anyone who has done a little research that he is DANGEROUS to America. I don't know what can be done to get the truth out there to the masses. The task is especially daunting with the media being on his side. McCain is going to have to get tough and go after Obama and call him on his bullshit. I don't know if he will do it, but the outcome of the election and the fate of our future is at stake.
