One of the most basic needs of voters in evaluating a candidate is a clear picture of who pays their bills. At the last minute, the Obama campaign opted out of public campaign financing and privatised its funding. It was a calculated attempt to leave the Republicans with a handicap in financing their own candidate.

Even private campaign dollars must be documented. There are people who may not donate to a compaign, mainly foreign individuals and governments. It is important that a President not take the oath of office beholden to foreign powers.

According to hugh hewitt town hall.com , “ “Fully $100 million of the record-breaking $150 million that the Obama campaign collected in September alone came over the internet via credit card donations. The Obama campaign has deliberately turned off the anti-fraud mechanisms available for internet credit card transactions. They have no clue how many millions or tens of millions of dollars have been donated to them in violation of federal election law. And now it turns out that the Obama campaign cheerfully takes even contributions from untraceable pre-paid credit cards, a/k/a “the pseudo-credit cards you use when you want to conceal illegal activity.”

The Obama campaign claims that they refund illegal contributions and don’t need a flagging system. Why not? If you can automate work that would have to be done later by live humans,why would you not do so, unless you were not planning to do the work at all?

According to the Washington Post , hardly a bastion of Republican activism,

Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is allowing donors to use largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor’s identity, campaign officials confirmed.

Faced with a huge influx of donations over the Internet, the campaign has also chosen not to use basic security measures to prevent potentially illegal or anonymous contributions from flowing into its accounts, aides acknowledged. Instead, the campaign is scrutinizing its books for improper donations after the money has been deposited.

The McCain campaign by contrast does not take the prepaid gift cards and credit cards. Although the McCain campaign has been stung with donations from obviously fraudulent donors such as A for You,’ ‘Adorable Manabat,’ ‘The Gun Shop,’ and ‘Jesus II, according to the Post article, it has left in place far more good faith safeguards to maintain financing transparency.

There is a saying that is emblematic of Obama’s campaign philosophy, it goes as follows. It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s whether I win or lose.

From cold callers working in the Gaza strip to Fidel Castro and Hamas endorsing Obama, there is so much that is rotten about Obama’s campaign. Jewish voters who believe that Obama is a friend of Israel overlook a multitude of warning signs. Jesse Jackson has stated that Obama will “end favoritism towards Israel.” Such Jewish voters remind me of children who desperately cling to a belief in Santa Claus. Even with his obstructionism, there are abundant clues of Obama’s real beliefs. He even named his book, “The Audacity of Hope.” after a sermon by Reverend Wright.

For Christians who are trying to put their consciences to sleep, there is the video below in which Obama sneeringly quotes translations of Jewish and Christian scriptures. Obama is most definately not Christian in any normally understood sense of the word. As painful as it is for me to recommend this, I strongly recommend reading Obama’s works and watching tapes of his speeches to determin if his repudiation of “Wrightism” is heartfelt or electorally motivated.

We have everything from academic records to video coverage of a dinner Obama attended being swept under the rug. Even Obama’s birth certificate is classified info, kept under lock and key by the governor of Hawaii . It’s not just what we don’t know but what Obama doesn’tt want us to know that gives me pause.

The Democratic “Big tent” has become not a place of inclusion but a garbage dump for all of Obama’s embarrassing garbage. The tent is getting very crowded. I think I will stay outside. Sphere: Related Content
