Way less time to write the blog, unfortunately. Don't know why, but 11/4 it will pick up again.

I'm a volunteer for the Barack Obama campaign. Shocking, I know, since many people visit this and look at my HBD posts as racial hatred and an indictment of egalitarianism.

But here is my list of reasons. Some of them aren't as strong as others. But here goes:

1) The Singularity.

Is far more important than any other phenomenon going on these days, whether it's the rise of China, Islamic takeover of Europe, or the destruction of the environment.

Having a pro-science President in the White House is essential to maintaining US superiority in these technologies to come.

2) Sarah Palin, Joe Biden.

"Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending soldiers out on a task that is from God. That's what we have to make sure that we're praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God's plan." –Sarah Pailn, on the Iraq war, speaking to students at the Wasilla Assembly of God, June 2008 (Watch video clip)"

Half Sigma is a blogger that closely parallels my beliefs. Even he has been dismayed by the Palin pick as pure political showgaming.

As opposed to Biden

"In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian-Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking."

As an Indian American I thought that was a riot.

or this

In what the Washington Post is describing as a “stumble,” Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said in an interview with the paper Wednesday that Washington’s high minority population is one of the reasons for the city’s education problems.

Explaining why schools in Iowa are performing better than those in Washington, D.C., Biden told the Post, “There’s less than one percent of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than four of five percent that are minorities. What is in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you’re dealing with.”

“When you have children coming from dysfunctional homes, when you have children coming from homes where there’s no books, where the mother from the time they’re born doesn’t talk to them — as opposed to the mother in Iowa who’s sitting out there and talks to them, the kid starts out with a 300 word larger vocabulary at age three. Half this education gap exists before the kid steps foot in the classroom,” the Delaware Democrat added.

3) Health care

We have to do something about it. I think that if we subsidize health care enough that will make people more resistant to illegal immigrants. Counter Intuitive, but that's probably how it will play out

4) US Reputation. American interests are priority one. We HAVE to undermine the Islamic message. How do we do that? Show them that while their religion leads their societies to more dysfunction, we elect a black agnostic as president.

5) Competence

His campaign is run WELL. I mean, it's a serious tight ship and has made tremendous use of technology to get out there.

6) Economy.

We're in the shitter.

It's quite simple. If he loses and Sarah Palin become a heartbeat away from the presidency, that will be a miserable time.


If Obama wins, don't worry. January 22, I will be ON HIS ASS making calling him out on anything deviating from the centrist pro-american policies I'm hoping from him.

I still read your blog and always notice when you have a new post because I use RSS feeds. I hope to see you more productive again after the election.

you are fool if you believe what obama says or claims to stand for. There are other parties to choose from beside the dem-repub dialectic.

1) china would not exist, or the industrialization of any 3rd world country, if it was not for western companies setting up shop in order to pay ping-pong 5 cents an hour while they pollute the hell out of the country. Labor arbritrage my friend.

Islamic takeover of Europe is due to immigration laws and deliberate treason. Environmental destruction is not as serious as it is made out to be. Remember what Gorbachev said...

Pro-science??? What the hell does that mean. He does not even understand basic economics.

2)again, left-right dialectic. It is obvious that those in power manipulate religious boobs into thinking this has some sort of godly aspect.

Reg the education issue: look at Africa and there is no need for an explanation. A problem without a solution. The dems just think they can solve it. Billions of our tax dollars later the problem persists. I am curious as to why Biden thought this was and what he thinks should be done.

3) A nationalized system of any kind cannot function in a balkanized country.

Come on, look at what our taxes support right now. Do we support any of these programs? Just add one more to the plate. These aliens can qualify for home loans. People already are resistant to illegal aliens, but the gov does nothing about this problem. Both candidates support amnesty.

4) Islamic religion/culture would not exist in any western nation if not for the treason of those in power. Immigration is the policy of declaring war on the native population. Read what the sponsors of the US 1965 immigration act have to say.

Do you really believe obama is agnostic?

5) this is laughable as he has done absolutely nothing.

6) Both parties support NAFTA (Clinton's gift), CAFTA, in/out-sourcing, and any trade agreement that harms this nation.

1) What? Are you at all familiar with the achievements of Chinese civilization before the West even exited?

I dislike Islam just as much as the other guy. But what can Obama do about Islamic immigration to Europe?

2) So yeah. HBD is there. But I don't think that Obama can screw things up more than NCLB. And of course there's Biden to watch him.

3) Amnesty won't work with universal health care.

4) Sure I'm not a fan of Islamic immigration. But without immigration, there is still the Saudis we have to deal with. And the combination of alternative energy bankrupting the madrasses + soft power should hurt the extremist message..

5) Nothing? Uh, I guess you haven't been part of the campaign. With the exception of them sending brown people like me to campaign in white areas, they've done a damn good job.

6)I'm pro free trade with the occasional limit.
