Martin & John, but not Barack
I am a conservative independent. Two men I admire are John Kennedy and Martin Luther King. Both had visions of one nation, under God, no matter what color.
Both felt it was up to all individuals to better themselves and be part of one great country and to do not only for yourself, but for your country.
Both felt no one should stand by with his hand out, but should set a goal and work to achieve it. Both were godly men opposed to violence.
Kennedy and King told us that when you look at a person, you should not see color. I feel all Obama can see is color.
Our current leader is the opposite of these two great men. We have crimes committed every minute, every day, but the only crimes President Obama spoke on national TV about was when a white policeman arrested a black man for breaking into his own house with a crow bar and a Hispanic man who shot and killed a black teen.
In Chicago, Obama's hometown, more people have been killed this year than American soldiers killed in Afghanistan. Obama wants this country run like his beloved Chicago.
Obama lovers won't have to worry about him having a job when he leaves office. There is always room on the bus with Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson that travels the country causing racial trouble.
Until we rid the country of this kind of man, we will never have the dream world that John and Martin envisioned.
