If you'd like clear, well-defined, and reasonable discourse, fine. I'll give you just that. But I expect the same from you too.
First, let me tell you where I'm coming from to help clear things up. I'm in my twenties, I'm conservative, previously liberal (I was liberal thanks to college indoctrination, mind you; before college, I didn't really give a hoot), and I'm also Roman Catholic. I study at a Jesuit university known for its Left-leaning tendencies. However, I don't let my being conservative get in the way of seeing things as they are; in fact, I would vote a Democrat in a heartbeat if he consistently proves, without even a speck of doubt, to be the better candidate through and through; gender does not matter, neither does race. He could be gay - which I find disagreeable - yet I'd throw my hat in for him if he promises to represent and defend America - especially MIDDLE America - and all that she holds dear, and proves capable of doing so; his sexual proclivities are none of my business.
Should you let me continue, I will not present here my own conclusions or opinions regarding Barack Obama, much less lies, rumors, and innuendo, as that would only ruin my credibility. Instead, I intend to shed some light on details regarding Barack Obama - his history, positions, public statements, associations, and whatnot. In fact, I want to jump the gun here, and say he's been less than honest. But let's not get ahead of ourselves.
I'd like to know whether you'd agree to be level-headed here with me before I continue. Otherwise, I might as well shout these words into the wind if you'd rather ignore what I have to say.
If you think I'm beating a dead horse here, you're wrong; just because he won doesn't mean we as citizens cannot in any way influence his plans and decisions.
