Eyes That See

“I Once Was Blind”

Adolf Hitler Was Democratically Elected…

I do not necessarily say that to compare Barack Obama with Hitler, only to point out that we should be wary of unidentified “change.” Would change from democracy to socialism, communism, or a dictatorship be positive change? Not all change heads you in the right direction. If I am swimming in the ocean and being pulled away from shore by a current, any change in direction that does not take me back toward the shore is not beneficial change. A change that increases the speed of the current or takes me more directly away from the shore is most assuredly a negative one.

On the basis of “change,” including “change” away from the war in Iraq- a war that President Bush and the Republican leaders of our government were convinced that we needed to enter into, along with most Americans, on the basis of intelligence errors out of Republican control; a war that was a necessary step due to the state of Iraq and numerous threats posed by Saddam Hussein before we intervened; and a war that we cannot simply abandon without dire consequences- Obama and his promises of “change” have landed him the Democrat spot in the race for Pres.

The early Christian martyr Polycarp, when Roman authorities exhorted him to “repent” from his “atheism” (meaning that they wanted him to recant his faith in Jesus Christ and repent from the “atheism” of not attributing deity to Caesar), said, “Repentance from better to worse is a change we cannot make.” So it is that change from better to worse is not a change that we should seek to make either. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence.

Denny Burk recently posted a blog titled “Why This Man Should Never Be President,” where you can see Obama’s speech to Planned Parenthood. In that speech Obama defends a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion on the basis of equal rights. Any logical path-tracing of this argument leads to this: his argument is that women should have the same right to sex without pregnancy that men have.

“93% of all abortions occur for social reasons (i.e. the child is unwanted or inconvenient).”

If 93% of abortions have absolutely nothing to do with conception as a result of rape, incest, or the mother’s health, then let us leave those arguments aside. If we want abortion to be legal only on such occasions, then would it not be logical to word legislation in such a manner to allow it only in those instances?

Such wording is never included in the debate. This, along with 93% of abortions taking place because the child is unwanted and/or would be inconvenient, means that it is a fact that anybody who makes any argument in favor of legalized abortion is defending abortion on the basis of the mother’s convenience. In our society, in a nation where there are approximately 3,700 abortions per day, a mother’s convenience supercedes an unborn baby’s right to live

Obama believes that a woman’s right to sex without consequential pregnancy, on no other basis than that the baby is unwanted and/or would be inconvenient, justifies taking the right to live away from unborn children.

Do we really want this man as President and Commander-in-Chief of our United States of America? Do we want this kind of change?

  1. Hiter is widely believed to have been elected but that is not correct. Hitler came to power through a back room deal.

    In 1932 the Nazi party won 36.7% of the vote. 63% of the electorate voted for other parties. This was to be the last free election in Germany for the next 14 years.

    All of those parties staunchly opposed the Nazis and refused to work with Hitler. Through a series of backroom deals, Hitler got himself appointed chancellor by the then partly senile 85-year old president Hindenburg. Hindenburg also despised Hitler but it was believed at that time that by bringing him into power they would be able to control and pacify him, a notion which quickly proved false.

    Soon after this dictatorship was established. Although there was another ‘election’ in 1938, all political parties had been banned five years earlier in 1933 and the Nazis ran unopposed.

    It would be correct to say that Hitler came to power “by legal means” but he was never elected and never received a majority vote in a free election.
