A look at Obama's policies is a must now that he and the democrats (or better known as the socialist party)
are getting ready to railroad this country into bankruptcy and second world status. Through a rehash of bad leadership and more bailout, big brother acts.Civil right policy:
Pay Inequity Continues: For every $1.00 earned by a man, the average woman receives only 77 cents, while African American women only get 67 cents and Latinas receive only 57 cents.
(I dispute these figure, where did he come up with them?)
Hate Crimes on the Rise: The number of hate crimes increased nearly 8 percent to 7,700 incidents in 2006.
Efforts Continue to Suppress the Vote: A recent study discovered numerous organized efforts to intimidate, mislead and suppress minority voters.
Disparities Continue to Plague Criminal Justice System:
African Americans and Hispanics are more than twice as likely as whites to be searched, arrested, or subdued with force when stopped by police. Disparities in drug sentencing laws, like the differential treatment of crack as opposed to powder cocaine, are unfair.
(a tired old argument that holds no water. Claiming that only minorities are convicted of crimes. Statistics prove that a majority of crime is committed by minorities therefore the only logical conclusion is a higher arrest and sentencing of minorities.)Barack Obama's Plan:
Strengthen Civil Rights Enforcement;
Obama will reverse the politicization that has occurred in the Bush Administration's Department of Justice. He will put an end to the ideological litmus tests used to fill positions within the Civil Rights Division.
(the litmus test referred to is the proper use of EOE policies. Where a person is considered on their merit, not on any ethnic or religious basis. Do not be fooled by Obama. He would increase the quota system, eliminating merit and basing hiring practices on quotas in favor of balancing the ethnic balance of employees.)Combat Employment Discrimination;
Obama will work to overturn the Supreme Court's recent ruling that curtails racial minorities' and women's ability to challenge pay discrimination. Obama will also pass the Fair Pay Act to ensure that women receive equal pay for equal work and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.
(a noble idea that would remove all entry level pay and discourage one to achieve as an individual. By setting a base pay across the board, removing any individual qualifications that set achievers apart from those who just want to collect a pay check.)Expand Hate Crimes Statutes;
Obama will strengthen federal hate crimes legislation, expand hate crimes protection by passing the Matthew Shepherd Act, and reinvigorate enforcement at the Department of Justice's Criminal Section.
(another censorship act that would prevent an individual from expressing his or her opinion if it is not politically correct and supportive of a Utopian view, also known as the fairness in broadcasting act.)End Deceptive Voting Practices;
Obama will sign into law his legislation that establishes harsh penalties for those who have engaged in voter fraud and provides voters who have been misinformed with accurate and full information so they can vote.
(do not be fooled by this wording. Again this is misleading and is not true. What is being passed as fairness is nothing more then another form of censorship to prevent opposing views on policy from being put out as general information to educate voters on new legislation that is not in the voters best interest.)End Racial Profiling;
Obama will ban racial profiling by federal law enforcement agencies and provide federal incentives to state and local police departments to prohibit the practice.
( This policy should scare people more then anything else proposed. It would bring to an end any form of investigating certain groups that do not hold Americas interest at heart. It would restrict any sort of investigating into extremists who tend to lean towards killing or hurting American citizens.)Reduce Crime Recidivism by Providing Ex-Offender Support;
Obama will provide job training, substance abuse and mental health counseling to ex-offenders, so that they are successfully re-integrated into society. Obama will also create a prison-to-work incentive program to improve ex-offender employment and job retention rates.
( a socialist view on rehab of criminals who should never be released back into society. Giving convicted felons handouts to help support their ways instead of actually treating or punishing them for their crimes.)Eliminate Sentencing Disparities;
Obama believes the disparity between sentencing crack and powder-based cocaine is wrong and should be completely eliminated.
(an equalization in the penal system for drug offenders. Making all drug crimes equal under the law and less punishable for more serious drug crimes in order to achieve legalization of drug usage.)Expand Use of Drug Courts;
Obama will give first-time, non-violent offenders a chance to serve their sentence, where appropriate, in the type of drug rehabilitation programs that have proven to work better than a prison term in changing bad behavior.
( A fancy way of saying more social programs that will be expanded to include second, and third time offenders who refuse to stop wasting their lives away by using drugs. More handouts taken from hard working sober citizens to care for those who refuse to try and be sober.)Disabilities:
Barack Obama's Plan
Obamas comprehensive agenda to empower individuals with disabilities fits in with the campaign's overarching message of equalizing opportunities for all Americans. In addition to reclaiming America's global leadership on this issue by becoming a signatory to -- and having the Senate ratify -- the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the plan has four parts, designed to provide lifelong supports and resources to Americans with disabilities. They are as follows:
First, provide Americans with disabilities with the educational opportunities they need to succeed.
Second, end discrimination and promote equal opportunity.
Third, increase the employment rate of workers with disabilities.
Fourth, support independent, community-based living for Americans with disabilities
The full plan http://www.barackobama.com/pdf/DisabilityPlanFactSheet.pdf
(This is essentially nothing more then platitudes and an increase in taxes to fund programs mismanaged by bureaucrats. In other words, giving more money to be wasted and spent on lining the pockets of those who do not know what they are doing.)
Wages are Stagnant as Prices Rise: While wages remain flat, the costs of basic necessities are increasing. The cost of in-state college tuition has grown 35 percent over the past five years. Health care costs have risen four times faster than wages over the past six years. And the personal savings rate is now the lowest it's been since the Great Depression.
Tax Cuts for Wealthy Instead of Middle Class: The Bush tax cuts give those who earn over $1 million dollars a tax cut nearly 160 times greater than that received by middle-income Americans. At the same time, this administration has refused to tackle health care, education and housing in a manner that benefits the middle class.
(the old argument of the rich get richer as the poor get poorer crap.)
Barack Obama's Plan:Jumpstart the Economy
(more funds to be provided to those who cannot manage their own fiances, a deeper redistribution of wealth)Provide Middle Class Americans Tax Relief
(another way of saying he will continue a very bad policy
of the Bush administration. More pretend government handouts to the middle class. A middle class determined by Obama, while shifting a tax burden to those who make over $50,000 a year.)Trade
(A demonstration in lack of experience and arrogance in world affairs. Thinking that by putting huge restrictions on American production he can force the world to adopt the same policies. Something the world already refuses to do.Job Creation
(Instead of shoring up existing industries and stream lining them, he would create a new industry based on being green and global warming policies. Funding taken away from workers now to give to companies who would force a radical change in our lifestyle as we know it. An increase in union based jobs over right to work policies. Increasing a dependence on foreign energy until a plausible working alternative becomes viable, costing America Independence and wealth.)Protect Home ownership and Crack Down on Mortgage Fraud
(claims that this is not a bailout are false. This plan clearly sets aside funds for bailouts and rewords existing laws that are not enforced now.
To create an illusion that he has done the voter/taxpayer a favor. Again more platitudes from the Messiah.)Address Predatory Credit Card Practices
(A take over of the banking system and businesses who provide credit to consumers. Removing the task of the individual to read the small print and decide if they want to enter into an agreement that is not a wise financial decision. The big brother is here to take care of you and do your thinking approach.)Reform Bankruptcy Laws
(More big brother intrusion on decisions made by the individual. A safety valve and bailout for those who make bad decisions in their fiances. The only part of this portion to his policies is the reform in bankruptcy law that allows individuals with medical debt with help. Unfortunately the majority of the high medical bill is a pass on to the American consumer policies that allow ILLEGAL ALIENS
to continue receiving free medical care at the American taxpayers expense.)Work/Family Balance
(More social programs paid for by the taxpayer, in a redistribution of wealth scam. An adoption of European work ethics and removal of the little business man to manage and conduct his business as needed by installing more regulations that hurt not help small businesses.)Ethics(The biggest blow hard concept he has placed forward. Lies of how he has spearheaded a move in Washington to clean up lobbyist and enforce policies of conduct. Yet he refuses to acknowledge any of his own dirty politics and lack of ethics. Deception and denial of his own past discredit any plans on his part for ethics and values!)Faith(A total sham in failed misdirection. Trying to show the world he is a christian all the while spending 20 plus years listening to a pastor that supported hatred and violence. Then throwing the man under the bus when it was revealed the truth of the sermons. Now attending under another pastor who supports the same radical policies and philosophies as the previous one. Taking the side of a misguided and atheist ACLU in a false interpretation to the separation of church and state stance. Do not be fooled by his smile, Obama is no Christian.)
