Friday I Saw My First 2008 Political Ad On TV - It Was For Obama

Connecticut is one of 22 states holding Democratic primaries on Feb. 5. Connecticut is not a swing state - nor is it important enough for candidates to even come for a visit...but that doesn't mean we won't see our share of nauseating TV propaganda. Friday I saw the first of probably many campaign ads which will run until Feb. 5th, and it was for Obama. I wasn't impressed. (By the way, the picture above was not from that ad).

The Courant even made a point of talking about this healthcare ad that is targeted to Hartford and New Haven markets. Interestingly enough former state Democrat party chairman George Jepsen had this to say: "Obama's Connecticut ad released today is unfortunately misleading by suggesting that his plan would provide universal health coverage. A number of independent experts have determined that his health care plan would leave at least 15 million Americans without health insurance." Well, I'd have to say universal health coverage would lead this country into a worse fiscal crisis and give us the substandard care, with long wait times, that Britain and Canada currently enjoy.

As for Obama's platform of "Change We Can Believe In" ...
In my opinion, that's not likely. The only change I want to see is away from statism and large nanny state government. The only change I want to see is lower taxes and lower government spending. The only change I want to see is enforcement of our immigration laws and the strengthening of protection of our borders. The only change I want to see is the strengthening of our dollar and our economy. We need to put a stop to government partnerships with the pharmaceutical industrial complex that allows mandating of screenings and treatments and disease mongering, and we need to put a stop to the march towards the loss of this country's sovereignty via the North American Union as well as other treaties and conventions coming out of the United Nations.

So far, the only one I hear talking about those types of issues and advocating for real change is Congressman from Texas, Dr. Ron Paul.

Ok, based on this post I am moving my post up a couple of days.

The big lie of 2008 is "Change".

Definition of change: Do the same old thing faster.

What about 'Change that is doable' or even better 'change that is legal'?

Belief and dreams are for children; Obama using this phrase is nothing more than a refined chant of 'keep hope alive'; meaningless twaddle designed for the lowest common denominator.

agreed

agreed; and this means specifically a return to the gold standard. With the gold standard in place, the government will not be able to print money to feed its ravenous machine.

We need to put a stop to government partnerships with the pharmaceutical industrial complex that allows mandating of screenings and treatments and disease mongering,

this is absolutely true, and will happen if a Constitutionally sized government is running in the USA.

and we need to put a stop to the march towards the loss of this country's sovereignty via the North American Union as well as other treaties and conventions coming out of the United Nations.

All true, and we need to stop all foreign aid, and to close all the bases around the world and bring all the troops home from wherever they have been languishing. There is no basis for either of the above in the Constitution.

You forgot one thing that is quite personal to you; the Department of Education must be abolished!

I had the displeasure of watching the democratic 'debate' in clips on CNN, and frankly, it had more in common with WWF Professional Wrestling than politics or debating. It was really quite astonishing. I kept waiting for Macho Man Randy Savage to come out and claim Mrs. Clinton as the new 'Miss Elizabeth'!

Cough cough...moving right along...

None of those people are in any way real, none of them have any real answers, they are not asked real questions, they do not address the facts - the whole thing is a charade, a fraud and a sham. I find it frightening that there are americans that think Obama is in any way a suitable candidate...but I digress; Ron Paul has changed everything, and we are at the beginning of the sea change that is exploding in america. Keep an eye out for 'Paulian' members of congress who are running for office...and who will run for office; that is where the big change is coming, where there are so many Paulians in america that the return to Constitutional government will have an unstoppable momentum.
