In Their Own Words

For those that are not on Mustang's mailing list, here are a couple of quotes that deserve some analysis. They don't stand out nearly as much on their own, as they do when you line them up next to each other:

"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded." — Barack Obama, 2008

Now, let's compare those words with these:

"This year will go down in history for the first time a civilized nation has full gun regulation. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future." — Adolf Hitler, 1935

The more you learn about this guy named Barack Obama, the more you need to worry. Before you cast your ballot, you really should give some real thought to who you are voting for and what the repercussions will be, should the guy you pull the lever for, win.

If the instant rise to fame, the grandiose promises, and all of the wide-eyed star-struck adoring fans aren't enough to persuade you, take a moment and digest these words. Get all of the partisan rhetoric out of your head and critically analyze what these words mean.

Remember, it was Obama that said that words count. Well, these are his own words. We know his stances on gun control, we know how he will act once he has power to work with a Democratic Congress. We know it will be the people, who will lose their abilities to empower and protect their own freedoms.
