I share Robert Stacy McCain’s frustration, but will not join him in writing John McCain’s political obituary. Not yet anyway.
First off, I just don’t trust all the polls. Regardless of who they say is up or down in the current news cycle.
But most importantly, I simply do not believe the American people will vote into office an anti-American radical. I realize Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton were elected, but I think it is indisputable that neither of them stepped-up to the plate with an America-despising biography like Obama’s.p>If I am wrong, then I will mourn the loss of the once-great America. Until then however, I cannot fathom anything but a McCain victory. br> — Dave Mills br> Rolla, Missouri /p>
If indeed Americans elect Obama, despite his inexperience, despite his contempt for America, despite his ties to a domestic terrorist, and despite the Democrat-caused financial collapse that is evicting hundreds of thousands of American families, the conclusion must be that democracy — and, by extension, our republic — is a failure, since it would demonstrate that the American electorate is incapable of rationally selecting the president, choosing instead to award the presidency as the political equivalent of the American Idol or Oscar.
Perhaps this ignorance is the inevitable result of decades of teachers failing to teach and journalists failing to report the facts. Perhaps it is because the Democrat party has been relentless in its attack on the family, religion, and the military.
Whatever the cause(s), Obama’s election would demonstrate the inherent self-terminating nature of democracy, in the absence of a rational electorate. It would demonstrate, also, the ultimate success of the radical left’s long march through the institutions, and their ultimate and perhaps permanent control of not only the media and schools, but also all three branches of government as well as the private lives of us hapless Americans.
All too soon, those of us not on the government payroll will look back upon November 4, 2008 — not September 11, 2001 — as the pivotal moment in the decline of the United States and, perhaps, its dissolution into two countries, ironically red and blue.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
