Election Results ~ Joy and Jubilation

I had really hoped that after the election we would all put aside our differences and work together, no matter who was elected. Alas that is not to be.

HT: O'Donnell Web with the post Batshait crazy homeschooler reactions to the election

First we have Consent Of The Governed: Amerika Goes Socialist. In all honesty our form of government worked the way it was designed to. We the people went to the polls and elected the person we wished to be President. The greatest number of us choose Obama, it's time to move on, pull together and support our President Elect. Statements like this are uncalled for.

By the way: Barack Obama is not my president as long as he does not produce a birth certificate proving he was born here, and if he doesn't produce all of the other documents such as baptismal certificate, school records, selective service registration etc. etc. that he has withheld from the American people.

President Elect Obama has a valid Hawaiian Birth Certificate

State officials say there's no doubt Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said Friday she and the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally verified that the health department holds Obama's original birth certificate.

As for the rest one does not need a baptismal certificate to be President of the United States, his school records are none of our business but if you feel compelled to know more about his school records click here. And President Elect Obama did indeed register for the selective service.

After contacting the Selective Service System for an answer several times since late June, Pajamas Media obtained official confirmation from the Selective Service System via email that Barack Obama did indeed register for the Selective Service as required by law, and is eligible to run for the presidency.

Mr. Owens,

Barack Hussein Obama registered at a post office in Hawaii. The effective registration date was September 4, 1980.

His registration number is 61-1125539-1.

By the way did anyone demand to see McCain's birth certificate, baptismal certificate, school records, selective service registration etc. ? No, I didn't think so.

Next we have Election Results: Sadness and Apprehension, whose sadness and apprehension could be elevated by visiting Obama's website and reading what his actual plans are instead of buying McCain's television ad's as gospel.

He’s going to socialize health care. He’ll shift the cost of health care from the individual to the government. Yes, less personal responsibility! Your choices for health care and insurance will be diminished as the government slowly centralizes the industry in the name of “making things better for everyone.”

  • According to the Obama website ~ Health care.
    Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s plan strengthens employer–based coverage, makes insurance companies accountable and ensures patient choice of doctor and care without government interference. Under the plan, if you like your current health insurance, nothing changes, except your costs will go down by as much as $2,500 per year. If you don’t have health insurance, you will have a choice of new, affordable health insurance options.

He’s going to raise taxes on everyone from Joe the Plumber to the wealthier segment of the population, including the many small businesses that create jobs and drive the economy. I vehemently disagree with Obama’s words: “When you spread the wealth around it’s good for everyone.” No, scratch that. I DO agree with that statement, but I DON’T think it’s the government’s job to spread the wealth. It’s the citizens’ prerogative. There is nothing in the Constitution stating the government has the right to steal my assets and give them to someone else. If the wealthier are taxed more, they invest less, they donate less, they hire less workers and they feed the economy less by spending less money. And businesses who are taxed more may be driven out of business or out of the country.

  • According to the Obama website ~ Taxes
    Barack Obama’s tax plan delivers broad-based tax relief to middle class families and cuts taxes for small businesses and companies that create jobs in America, while restoring fairness to our tax code and returning to fiscal responsibility. Click here to see the impact of his tax plan. Middle Class America will actually get to keep more of their paychecks. In my book that is a good thing.

He’s going to give the government more power over education by throwing more money at the problem. And we all know how effective that is. While it’s unclear how Obama will move on education (he supports “experimenting” with vouchers to see if the system could work), it’s clear that the NEA is a huge Obama supporter. This certainly does not bode well for those of us wanting more privatization of schooling. And as far as I can tell, he does not support homeschooling at all.

    Click here to see to see President Elect Obama's education policy. Nothing in it leads me to believe he doesn't support homeschooling. I blogged more about it here.

    I was very impressed with Senator McCain's concession speech, I saw the man I admired and that seemed so sadly missing from the campaign. All Americans should take his words to heart.

    I urge all Americans ... I urge all Americans who supported me to join me in not just congratulating him, but offering our next president our good will and earnest effort to find ways to come together to find the necessary compromises to bridge our differences and help restore our prosperity, defend our security in a dangerous world, and leave our children and grandchildren a stronger, better country than we inherited.


    1. I second the general appreciation from all quarters, for Senator McCain's concession speech. :)

      His personality and psychology make a fascinating case study imo. Lots of new perspective on who both candidates really are (not the caricatures we see) in the Newsweek analysis project now hitting the stands. The McCain chapters so far are:

      "Back From the Dead"

      "Going Into Battle"

    2. I wonder how much of McCain's campaign was the result of bad advice from his advisers.

      I think his attempt to woo the religious right alienated him from his supporters.

    3. I'm not so sure he quite meant to do that. I get the impression he thought he was wooing the Hillary Clinton voters instead.
      (Talk about bad advice!)

    4. Talk about not understanding your target audience.
