This is beyond scary

I'm not the kind of person that stands for much. Although, those things that I value and believe in, I value and believe in vehemently. I also don't engage in controversial discussions here on this site, but today, I'm going to take a chance and share with you something that I find to be beyond scary. Our country is engaged in a presidential race and the person in the forefront of that race is Barack Obama. I would like to share a video with you. Please tell me whether or not this is the kind of leader you want to see in our country. I don't just fear for myself, I fear for my children. Take a look at the following and tell me if you feel this is who you think should be one of the most influential leaders of the world? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUdjhKbImwE

I am scared of him myself. Espically from the start when he didn't put his hand on his heart during the Pledge of Allignce and also hearing that he is going to stop the making of weapons here if he gets voted in to be our President. I don't want him that's for sure.

The fact that a nominee for the President of the United States wouldn't put his hand over his heart speaks volumes in itself. If he doesn't stand for the United States what does he stand for?

Excatly I mean he might be against us. I'm not even sure if he is from America or for us. He could be against us or plotting something against us once he gets voted in.

Anyone running for the office of the President of the United States that can't put their hand over their heart or wear a flag that represents this country does not have the best interest of this country at heart. You can take that to the bank.

Katherine...I've seen this enough to be scared and have tried to talk to as many as possible to wake them up from what i say is a spell on numerous people over this Man. I've talked in discussions here about him and prove is in his books and past..he's pulling a fast one on those that voted to get him this far. Be afraid..be very afraid

All we can do is try to get the word out to those who have been hypnotized by this person. This is not ok, and if we vote for him, it is surely going to be our demise.

I commend you for this since there are alot of people that are undecided still and after seeing this won't be anymore. I didn't need to since i could spot him at the beginning as pulling the wool over them that are blinded by this. I'm from the 60's and used to giving my opinions.

As I just mentioned to someone else, the internet is a powerful tool. If all of us were to pass this along to those that are undecided, I think there would be less people sitting on the fence.

That is ridiculous! Who cares whether he wears an american flag pin or not? I don't put my hand over my heart for the anthem either. I wouldn't even say the pledge of allegiance. What's wrong with that?

The difference between you and Obama is that you are not representing the nation by running for the office of President of the United States. If our leader can't set an example, who will?

Not if we voice our opinion. Do not vote for him, do not let your friends vote for him, do not let your family, neighbors or enemies vote for him.

You are right Sparks. This may not just effect the United States. This effects every single person out there on one level or another. If he is elected President our collective futures will not be as bright.

I have said it before...and I will say it again...GOD help this country if Obama is elected president. Obama will be the downfall of America if we listen to him and rely on his ideals. I am still not certain that he isn't the anti-Christ, but I am certain that we are in for a rough road as Americans if he wins this election.

I couldn't agree more. I don't normally speak out when it comes to politics, but after seeing this video, even I couldn't help, but stop and yell, "NO, this isn't ok with me." I have to say something, not even I can sit back and let this happen.

hmm though i can see your point i cant help but think your being alittle over dramtic you really think obama is amy else trust worth then any other person in office or trying to get in office. the fact he offered to run shows he cant be trusted. the only good leader is one that dosnt want power which shows to greatist fault in the US government. personaly im a anarchist which means i believe any government is a bad one. so maybe my view is unfair.

I don't think I'm being overdramatic. If the little things give you reason for pause right from the beginning what does that say? I am not fond of any of the candidates, but I don't have nearly the misgivings for Hilary and McCain as I do for Obama.

again i see your logic yet still. i cant help but feel theres little differnce with the three of them. being a anarchist i dont vote so im afread its up to you to stop obama winning. best regards

I watched the clip and I'm even more scared than I was before. I started out liking obama and then questioning him and as time goes on, I get more and more worried.I do think that he is probably going to win the election and it will be our downfall. He has many on his side. Have you ever tried to talk to any of these obama followers logically? you get accused of being racist. And what is up with John Edwards suddenly backing him? I was all for John Edwards and sad that he dropped out but now I am not even sure I knew who he was. I really am not feeling good about any of the candidates we are having to choose from but obama is the worst of all.

Do you realize how many people are now opting not to vote based on the choices? As for John Edwards did he fall prey to the pressures of the Democratic Party? I don't know. I think many of us are confused and very, very scared. If Obama is elected then we have good reason.

exactly! it is very scary. We have so little choice. I am not overly comfortable with our options either but as opposed to obama, I think either one would be better. As for John Edwards....that is just all pretty strange, I think. I am going to be passing this link on. I already made up my mind about obama even before seeing this. The issue with his minister did it for me and I would have thought it would have for any intelligent american but obviously not. This little link only confirms my thoughts even more. People get set in their thoughts tho and it is hard to change their thinking. For whatever reason, they all make excuses for this man.

Wow what an expose of this candidate. I was hoping that he would be a historic personality if he would win the race. But then again it would also be historic if Hillary would also win the elections. I just hope that America would choose wisely. I am not an American but I truly hope that you would choose who has the right to seat in the office.

Although it may be history in the making, it also could be our demise if the wrong choice is made. After watching this video you should agree that a woman for president is something we should prefer to read about in the history books.

I think the most scary part of the whole thing is that when it brought brought up to him as to why he did not put his hand over his heart he knew that it was not required of him to do so. Isn't putting your hand over your heart just a sign of respect at the least. I heard about this a while back and it was one of the things that completely turned me off on him. I mean he is a well educated man but he is ignorant and arrogant as well.

Not required to do so? What kind of example does a presidential candidate set for all the patriotic citizens of the United States? What kind of message does that send to our children? That its ok to disrespect a sign of respect? That its ok to not proudly wear the flag of our country. Not someone I want to have leading us as a nation.

I totally agree with you. To me it says he has no respect for America what so ever, but yet he's still winning which I do not understand. His wife has already said on 2 separate occasions about how America is no good. And than theres his preacher who puts down America and white people. I mean himself and his party have already said so many negative things. I am shocked that he is still in the running.

So scary! Thank you so much for this enlightening video. I Am very political. My Mouth runneth over, and tends to get me in trouble for speaking my mind on subjects like "who really took down the world trade center?" and How can we be TRILLIONS of Dollars in debt, as a country, for starting a meaningless war with Iraq, false statements of weapons of mass destruction...other such topics! Like why do we have children hungry in America? don't even get me Started on my G W BUSH monologue. I can't and never could look at that Dumb as a stump, beady eyed embarrassment of a man. I knew from the start that he (George w.) would ruin our country! and he has....Oh My Soul he has! I have had many many arguments with my Republican brother who thought G W was the best thing since sliced bread. Well let's just say the last 8 years have brought my very rich bro to his knees...(I am not gloating here)(well maybe a little) but the fact remains we will probably never come back as the greatest country in the World because of G W BUSH! I once thought that OBAMA had 'the face of the world' and might be the right choice since he is the COLOR OF most of THE WORLD...in other words he would easily be able to fit in and 'Diplomatically' travel to countries that are of different color and idealism and also countries that have no respect for women, let alone Americans. My thoughts are different now that I have seen one too many videos of his real idealism! He really is one to be afraid of...it is not too late! He seems almost ANTI -American! The fact that he won't wear the flag pin or put his hand on his heart for the national anthem is outright embarrassing, and frightening. Where did he even get the money to run such a campaign? who is backing him? I can see the headlines now...he will be called Husein OSAMA from the start... will he take his roll as President, much like CHE Guevara did in Cuba...? People, you all need to watch this video that Kbourgie shares with us...and make your own decision's ...I'm gonna vote Hillary. Not because I like her all that much, but at least she is a woman, and has some real feelings for People's welfare. Just my opinion...

And I thank you for your opinion. If you read my earlier responses you will see that I am admittedly not very political in nature and normally would never enter into a topic such as this. I would no sooner post a discussion about politics as I would respond to one. For too many years I have hidden under the edges of my carpet pretending if I didn't notice, it didn't exist, but not even I can ignore something that is so blatantly wrong. If this made me sit up and take notice, then surely its deserves raising an eyebrow and saying "hey wait a darn minute, something here is really not ok".

His own words have always said he hates whites, or anyone that is below him in education or his amount of money he makes, if you don't measure up to his life you are nothing, I have posted on here time after time that we are making a big mistake in electing this man to the White House, I fear for us all if he gets in, I form opinion quickly, and I am usually not wrong, I fear that he is an open door to the terrorist to get into this country, I seen a video that he said he is cutting our military,and then going to Russia and telling them we have done away with our missiles so why don't you, how stupid can you be, I look for another 9-11 no long after he is elected and it will be no fault but his own, he is setting us up for destruction.he makes me think when I hear him talk that he is our for revenge on the white people of this country, that we will become the slaves of tomorrow, how can our politicians be so stupid to back and support such a person, the only reason I can find for it is that they believe he will be their puppet on a string, that they will be able to manipulate him to what they want, and it appalls me to think that Kennedy would put this man in the same category as John his brother, he is another one looking for the puppet he wants, Richardsom, Plasky the whole bunch of them. I truly don't believe he can beat McCain and I think Hillary deciding to stay in hurts the DEMS more each day, she is dividing the vote to where McCain must be sitting back laughing and waiting. Never in my life have i seen this country lower it's self to what we have running today for office. Hillary is a snake that thrives on power, she is here telling these people that lost their jobs how she is going to keep jobs in America when she voted to send them to Mexico, Obama is trouble and if we allow him to get in we the people of all color is in trouble, because not only the white but the poor and ones that don't come up to his standards will hurt.

The video in and of itself seemed somewhat biased... Yet who on God's green earth does he think he is, not proud of his nation and running for president? Aieh! People fail to make sense. When it comes to elections, I've never been one for politics, but I thought Hillary was bad, oh HELL. God help us if either of 'em gets up there. God PLEASE help us.

A picture speaks a thousand words. Or a video, as it might be. It speaks the facts and these facts are very incriminating as to the lack of pride he takes in the country for which he running for the office of President.

Personally, I as a Christian have not been a supporter of Obama ever. I think this video should truly be a wake up call to everyone here in the US. He is BAD news, and if he wins people will begin to wish they could have Voted for someone else. He truly does not stand for anything Good and I do fear him if he wins. Personally, I would Love to do anything in my Power to make sure he does not win. The caucuses were fixed to make everyone think he won, when in reality I am sure Hillary could have won. What will it take for the American people to realize just who this man really is? Thanks for posting this.

As I have suggested to others, if you don't want him to be voted into office then spread this link to others. If we all were to do that, maybe we can make a difference.

Any presidential nominee in any country must and always respect the flag of that country whether or not they believe in it's government's laws and policies. If a presidential nominee won't respect that, what flag would he respect? Where would his loyalty be? A flag doesn't symbolizes it's government nor would it ever be but It does embodies the history and the people of the country.

I still remember nine eleven and I lost friends there. no way am I voting for this man no way in hell am I voting for him and I am hoping others will see the fallacy of this man being a president. no, I fear for all of us if he becomes our president . too much wrongs' there and he refuses to wear the american flag. why does he refuse to wear the american flag. A muslim for the leader of the USA I do not think so. No he is all wrong, really all wrong.

Hatley, this man refuses to wear something that has represented America as a nation for years. He refuses to do something that every school age child is proud to do every single morning and yet he will not only represent our company, but lead it? You are right, it is completely wrong and we CANNOT allow it to happen.

I've been trying to load and watch this 'you-tube' video for over 2 and 1/2 hours now. I've managed to see 6 minutes of it. Participating in discussions where I need to watch a video is painful on dial-up. To the discussion: I'm an Aussie and I don't want to see this man in power. He's an unknown from what I can make out and has nothing positive to bring to the position. I won't pretend that I have any political leanings, I just don't like what I've seen and heard so far. I think even less of Hilary. She is a liar! There's something I don't understand...do you vote for these people? If you don't vote for them, how do they get elected?
