Joe the doctor
I am Joe. Like Joe the Plumber, I have major differences with the Democrat candidate for President of the United States. Also, like Joe, I have things in my past that I would not necessarily want to see reported on television. That would be one of the reasons I am not running for office. The fact that that is an issue is one of the things that most concerns me about this election. The major networks are so in the bag for Obama, that he gets a total pass on everything in his past, but a citizen who asks a fair question gets "vetted" and everything embarrassing is out there in public.
Where are the questions for Obama? I'll suggest a few. Why are you hiding your actual birth certificate, your college and law school records, your thesis, and your connections with the unrepentant radicals? Here I am referring to Pelosi, Dodd, Reid and Frank, but you might answer about Ayers, Dohrn, Wright, Alinsky, Al Mansour, Klonsky, Khalidi, and Davis, as well. What is your past and current relationship with ACORN? After you give us those answers, I will have a few followup questions. While I wait, let me toss you a few softballs. What is your most significant accomplishment up until today that shows how you are qualified to serve as President? What person close to you has had the most influence on your philosophy of life? What foreign leader, present or past, do you most admire? Which foreign government has done the best job of providing health care for its citizens? I have been providing care to injured patients without regard to race, creed, color, national origin or ability to pay, for about 43 years. I will continue to do so as long as I am able. I would not be willing or able to do so under a compulsory system of socialized medicine. Look at our current government programs, Medicare, Medicaid and Tricare. Although covering less than half of our population, they cost over half of our annual health care budget, and will have cost overruns in the trillions of dollars even if not expanded as Obama proposes to do. I believe that we need, and deserve, better than that. That is one reason why I am for McCain-Palin. The most important reason why I am against Obama is his position on our national defense. As a patriot who volunteered to serve our country in two wars, I cannot support a candidate who has said he will ‘cut investments in unproven missile defense systems’; he will ‘not weaponize space’; he will ‘slow our development of future combat systems’; and he will also ‘not develop nuclear weapons,’ pledging to seek ‘deep cuts’ in America’s arsenal, thus unilaterally disabling its nuclear deterrent as Russia and China engage in massive military buildups, and NoKo and Iran are working on nuclear weapons. Yes, I believe that Obama would be tested within six months of his election, and that he would fail the test, to our severe loss. Think before you vote, please.
