Barack Obama is not my Homey

The Cult of Barack Obama

The media is in love with him. His cult-like followers are cheering, crying, fainting and passing out, similar to that of Scientology rally that I once attended. You can call it the Barack Obama tent-gathering revival meeting that were once common among Evangelical Christians in the U.S. over a century ago. Here’s a quick video:

While the sequence of cult-like behavior has impressed the mainstream media, I am not that impressed.  It reminds me of charismatic and inspiring cult-leader [1] Jim Jones who, in the 70’s, led his sheep to South America where over 900 died by cyanide poisoning or gunshot wounds. Like Obama, Jim had the ability captivate crowds of people with his charming personality and great articulation of words. Here is some [2] footage of the People’s Temple before the massacre (three and four minute mark); same crying, passing out, etc.

However, behind the passionate speeches about change and unity is a very scary story.  I looked up his [3] voting record and was surprised to see that he doesn’t really have one. Over 300 bills have crossed his desk since 2005 and he only voted in about 50 percent of them. However, here are some key votes that he did vote on:

  • Voted against extending the Bush tax cuts on capital gains and dividends
  • Voted against permanently repealing the Death Tax. (Called the cuts a “Paris Hilton” tax break for “billionaire heirs and heiresses”)
  • Voted against CAFTA
  • Voted YES on raising the minimum wage to $7.25 rather than $6.25.
  • Opposed the lifting of $0.54 per gallon tariff on cheaper Brazillian ethanol. Said, “ethanol imports are neither necessary nor a practical response to current gasoline prices.”
  • Voted against the bankruptcy abuse bill.
  • Opposes privatizing Social Security
  • Voted against drilling in ANWR.
  • Voted against confirmation of Sam Alito and John Roberts to the Supreme Court.
  • Voted against extending the Partiot Act’s wiretap provision.
  • Opposed any bans on partial birth abortions.

To be fair, I don’t think Obama is a bad man. He seems like a very decent human being; a good father and husband. I’d even consider having a beer with him someday.  But he is not someone I would want making decisions for this country on my behalf.
