A Short Quiz for Obama Voters Before you vote for Obama in November 2012, ask yourself these questions
Everyone considering a vote to re-elect Barack Obama in 2012 needs to carefully consider these four easy questions before voting, particularly if they voted for Obama in 2008.
There are four simple questions that cut through the tangential issues that might seem to overwhelm presidential campaigns. Ask yourself these questions and then carefully consider your answers. You might find your answers help clarify how you should vote in November 2012.
The four questions everyone should consider who (a) voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and (b) plans to vote for Barack Obama again in 2012:
Is our nation better off today than it was January 1, 2008?
Did our nation get the kind of change it was promised in 2008?
Are our nation's problems really the fault of Republicans when Obama had an overwhelming Democrat Congress in 2009-2010 and a Democrat Senate in 2011-2012?
If President Barack Obama's name were Barry O'Brien and he was a smooth-talking White American man rather than a smooth-talking Black American man, would you still vote for him?
Think long and carefully about your answers before you vote November 2012.
A person's race is no reason to either vote for or against that person.
Far more important are character, accomplishment, and a record of executive excellence. Can you honestly say Barack Obama has exhibited these qualities during his term as President?
PS: The correct answer to the first three questions above is "NO"!
Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
