Here’s a campaign e-mail Obama supporters received this week:
Growing up, my classmates and I started every day with a ritual: We’d stand up, put our right hand over our hearts, and say the Pledge of Allegiance.
To me, that gesture was a promise. A promise to be involved and engaged in this country’s future. A promise to work for liberty and justice — and for affordable education, health care, and equality — for all.
That’s why all across the country, people like you and I are proudly writing down our reasons for getting involved, and then taking the pledge — to vote.
This election will have consequences for everyone. Rich, poor, black, white, Hispanic, Asian American, gay or straight, every American has something to lose — and something to gain — from what happens this November. As Americans, we’re in this together, for one and for all.
So let your friends and family know you care, and make sure they have all the information they need to make their voices heard in this election.
This is nothing but the typical mindless, cult-like devotion and inane cheer-leading for “their guy”. That whole infantile mindset reeks like a corpse whether it’s for the blue team or the red team. The filthy political process and senseless adoration that so many have for “their guy” says a great deal more about the character of this nation than it does about our would-be kings.
We are entering “dear leader” territory, as seen in the genocidal dictatorships of Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Pol Pot. This is how people are slaughtered. Indeed, this led to gas chambers, gulags and mountains of skulls in other countries that went down this road. I am not optimistic that Romney can eke out a victory. He is fighting like a boxer with one hand tied behind his back, while Obama is doing extreme fighting/mixed martial arts. He can kick Romney below the waist while the media applaud, and if Romney gets in a left upper cut, the media excoriate and demonize him to the ends of the earth. We are slowly becoming a politically correct fascist dictatorship with Obama at the helm. We already have an Obama version of the stars and stripes being sold by his campaign; now we have all of the Hollywood morons and assorted elites pledging allegiance to Obama and NOT to America. We are doomed. The sheep will follow this man off the cliff, while the rest of us will be herded into camps for insulting or criticizing Dear Leader, or being insufficiently patriotic to Obama. Is the entire country asleep? Do they know where this leads or do they care, as long as they get their food stamps/unemployment/welfare/disability/etc.? It’s been said that America could survive an Obama, but NOT a citizenry that could vote for this man.
In the first Star Wars, Darth Vader practically killed a man, for whom he said “I find your lack of faith disturbing”. What I find in this particular twist in re-election is nothing short of creepy. Can you imagine Mitt Romney asking Americans to pledge their support to him? Anybody see the difference between pledge of loyalty to flag and country, versus loyalty to one man. Has the word “idolatry” any meaning at all anymore?
In terms of creepiness, this is not much different than the 2008 campaign. Hope, Change, and those Mussolini like posters were pretty bizarre too. And how can we forget “The Office of the President Elect” seal?
