My Case Against Senator Barack Obama and Gen. Colin Powell On the 2008 US Presidential Election

Colin Powell

I am 100% Black African and I agree with the critical analysis of Mark Davis' opinion on "What Powell endorsement says about him" published at 12:00 AM CDT on Wednesday, October 22, 2008, in the Dallas News online edition.

Like Colin Powell, most of the African American Republicans are going to turn to Judas Iscariot and betray the GOP in the 2008 United States presidential election to vote for Barack Obama on November 4, 2008.

Barack Obama

I have never trusted African Americans, because of their flip-flop characters as they are easily swayed by their narrow views and shallow opinions of the truth on the hypocritical Christian posturing of Barack Obama who wrote a letter to beg Gays and Lesbians to vote for him to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and vote for same sex marriage.

He condemns Gays and Lesbians behind their backs and then turns around to woo them to vote for him for President?
Is that whom Gen. Colin Powell claims to have always been a "Christian" all his life and "Transformational" figure?
Who is Colin Powell trying to fool?
Dumb Americans being fooled by the political hypocrisy of Barack Obama, whose campaign strategy reads like a script from Robert Greene's "The 48 Laws of Power " on how to use political deceit and intellectual conceit to spin American voters.

The same Gen. Colin Powell lied to the United Nations Security Council on February 5, 2003, to argue in favour of the invasion of Iraq, but his so called oratorical skills did not stop Britain's Channel 4 News to expose that Powell had in fact presented a plagiarized essay by an American graduate student as his fine paper and his information on the weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) was false.

No true Christian would have voted against the DOMA as Barack Obama did and continues to oppose.

The Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, is the short title of a federal law of the United States passed on September 21, 1996 as Public Law No. 104-199, 110 Stat. 2419. Its provisions are codified at 1 U.S.C. § 7 and 28 U.S.C. § 1738C. The law has two effects:

1. No state (or other political subdivision within the United States) need treat a relationship between persons of the same sex as a marriage, even if the relationship is considered a marriage in another state.

2. The Federal Government may not treat same-sex relationships as marriages for any purpose, even if concluded or recognized by one of the states.
The bill was passed by Congress by a vote of 85-14 in the Senate[1] and a vote of 342-67 in the House of Representatives[2], and was signed by President Bill Clinton on September 21, 1996.

The following is the letter Senator Barack Obama wrote to the LGBT Community vowing to repeal DOMA and on the Don't Ask, Don't Tell, etc.

Open Letter from Barack Obama to the LGBT community

I'm running for President to build an America that lives up to our founding promise of equality for all - a promise that extends to our gay brothers and sisters. It's wrong to have millions of Americans living as second-class citizens in this nation. And I ask for your support in this election so that together we can bring about real change for all LGBT Americans.

Equality is a moral imperative. That's why throughout my career, I have fought to eliminate discrimination against LGBT Americans. In Illinois, I co-sponsored a fully inclusive bill that prohibited discrimination on the basis of both sexual orientation and gender identity, extending protection to the workplace, housing, and places of public accommodation. In the U.S. Senate, I have co-sponsored bills that would equalize tax treatment for same-sex couples and provide benefits to domestic partners of federal employees. And as president, I will place the weight of my administration behind the enactment of the Matthew Shepard Act to outlaw hate crimes and a fully inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act to outlaw workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

As your President, I will use the bully pulpit to urge states to treat same-sex couples with full equality in their family and adoption laws. I personally believe that civil unions represent the best way to secure that equal treatment. But I also believe that the federal government should not stand in the way of states that want to decide on their own how best to pursue equality for gay and lesbian couples - whether that means a domestic partnership, a civil union, or a civil marriage. Unlike Senator Clinton, I support the complete repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) - a position I have held since before arriving in the U.S. Senate. While some say we should repeal only part of the law, I believe we should get rid of that statute altogether. Federal law should not discriminate in any way against gay and lesbian couples, which is precisely what DOMA does. I have also called for us to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and I have worked to improve the Uniting American Families Act so we can afford same-sex couples the same rights and obligations as married couples in our immigration system.

The next president must also address the HIV/AIDS epidemic. When it comes to prevention, we do not have to choose between values and science. While abstinence education should be part of any strategy, we also need to use common sense. We should have age-appropriate sex education that includes information about contraception. We should pass the JUSTICE Act to combat infection within our prison population. And we should lift the federal ban on needle exchange, which could dramatically reduce rates of infection among drug users. In addition, local governments can protect public health by distributing contraceptives.

We also need a president who's willing to confront the stigma - too often tied to homophobia - that continues to surround HIV/AIDS. I confronted this stigma directly in a speech to evangelicals at Rick Warren's Saddleback Church, and will continue to speak out as president. That is where I stand on the major issues of the day. But having the right positions on the issues is only half the battle. The other half is to win broad support for those positions. And winning broad support will require stepping outside our comfort zone. If we want to repeal DOMA, repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and implement fully inclusive laws outlawing hate crimes and discrimination in the workplace, we need to bring the message of LGBT equality to skeptical audiences as well as friendly ones - and that's what I've done throughout my career. I brought this message of inclusiveness to all of America in my keynote address at the 2004 Democratic convention. I talked about the need to fight homophobia when I announced my candidacy for President, and I have been talking about LGBT equality to a number of groups during this campaign - from local LGBT activists to rural farmers to parishioners at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, where Dr. Martin Luther King once preached.

Just as important, I have been listening to what all Americans have to say. I will never compromise on my commitment to equal rights for all LGBT Americans. But neither will I close my ears to the voices of those who still need to be convinced. That is the work we must do to move forward together. It is difficult. It is challenging. And it is necessary.

Americans are yearning for leadership that can empower us to reach for what we know is possible. I believe that we can achieve the goal of full equality for the millions of LGBT people in this country. To do that, we need leadership that can appeal to the best parts of the human spirit. Join with me, and I will provide that leadership. Together, we will achieve real equality for all Americans, gay and straight alike.

Yes, Gays and Lesbians have their rights as bona fide citizens of the United States of America, but no true American Christian will vow to repeal the DOMA! But since most African American Christians are hypocrites, they are ready to sell their soul to the devil and vote for the election of the presidential nominee of the Democratic Party as the first African American President of the United States of America.

As a Christian and standing on the true Word of God and even on commonsense, I will not support any hypocrite and liar to be elected into any position of authority, because the election of such a desperate character will do more harm than good to the noble values and virtues of the American society and the rest of humanity.
