To the Editor:
Who is Barack Obama? Is he a god? Is he a symbol of change? Could he unite the entire world, bring peace and end suffering to the human race? According to half of Americans, the answers to these questions may surprise you.
Many people are being deceived by a well presented, great speaking, but shallow man. Barack Hussein Obama is a young politician running for president. He is running on an extremely liberal platform. He is only a first-term senator from Illinois .
Barack speaks of hope and change frequently. Change is simply a different state of being than the current. Change isn't good or bad, but neutral. The change he intends to bring is horrendous. It's more of the same broken liberal policies masked by the left-wing media.
Having hope and faith in empty rhetoric isn't something America needs. He is not a god, contradictory to what some of the media may imply. It is unnatural for supporters to pass out at rallies. Barack's pastor has given praise to the openly racist Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. His own secretary wrote his policy on national defense and economics is "scary."
Even some Republicans are being deceived by this guy. Some have used him as protest vote against Hillary Clinton. No Republican wants another Clinton in the White House, but Obama is no different.
John McCain is no perfect candidate. Most would say he isn't conservative enough. However, he is right on the major issues and is ready to lead America. There are choices to make in this election. Substance and principles should matter, not just words of glee and impossible promises.
