Here is one good reason to vote for Obama.
RE: Corporate involvement:
The Solyndra fiasco is one good reason not to vote for him.
With Obama's anti fossil fuel stance, I wouldn't be surprised if Mitt Romney receives more support from oil firms. I'm alright with that. And with the new oil field discoveries, and new technology to retrieve oil on American land, allowing further exploration would be a positive for our poor economy, and chronic unemployment.
Recall this article about an oil field in Texas replacing a good deal of crude from the middle east.
"Texas Shale 'Gusher' Shows Why Fracking Is Important"
There can be no reason for a Christian to vote for this "baby killer".
Millions of Christians nationwide might disagree with your assessment.
Then millions of Christians are supporting the most pro-abortion politician in America. Even the pagan Hippocratic Oath recognized that abortion was wrong.
Hippocratic Oath http://www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/greek/greek_oath.html
I swear by Apollo the physician, and Asclepius, and Hygieia and Panacea and all the gods and goddesses as my witnesses, that, according to my ability and judgement, I will keep this Oath and this contract:
To hold him who taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents, to be a partner in life with him, and to fulfill his needs when required; to look upon his offspring as equals to my own siblings, and to teach them this art, if they shall wish to learn it, without fee or contract; and that by the set rules, lectures, and every other mode of instruction, I will impart a knowledge of the art to my own sons, and those of my teachers, and to students bound by this contract and having sworn this Oath to the law of medicine, but to no others.
I will use those dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according to my greatest ability and judgement, and I will do no harm or injustice to them.
I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.
In purity and according to divine law will I carry out my life and my art.
I will not use the knife, even upon those suffering from stones, but I will leave this to those who are trained in this craft.
Into whatever homes I go, I will enter them for the benefit of the sick, avoiding any voluntary act of impropriety or corruption, including the seduction of women or men, whether they are free men or slaves.
Whatever I see or hear in the lives of my patients, whether in connection with my professional practice or not, which ought not to be spoken of outside, I will keep secret, as considering all such things to be private.
So long as I maintain this Oath faithfully and without corruption, may it be granted to me to partake of life fully and the practice of my art, gaining the respect of all men for all time. However, should I transgress this Oath and violate it, may the opposite be my fate.
Notice now comments on the Hippocratic Oath today!
THE OATH: MEANINGLESS RELIC OR INVALUABLE MORAL GUIDE?
The Hippocratic Oath is one of the oldest binding documents in history. Written in antiquity, its principles are held sacred by doctors to this day: treat the sick to the best of one's ability, preserve patient privacy, teach the secrets of medicine to the next generation, and so on. "The Oath of Hippocrates," holds the American Medical Association's Code of Medical Ethics (1996 edition), "has remained in Western civilization as an expression of ideal conduct for the physician." Today, most graduating medical-school students swear to some form of the oath, usually a modernized version. Indeed, oath-taking in recent decades has risen to near uniformity, with just 24 percent of U.S. medical schools administering the oath in 1928 to nearly 100 percent today
Yet paradoxically, even as the modern oath's use has burgeoned, its content has tacked away from the classical oath's basic tenets. According to a 1993* survey of 150 U.S. and Canadian medical schools, for example, only 14 percent of modern oaths prohibit euthanasia, 11 percent hold convenant with a deity, 8 percent foreswear abortion, and a mere 3 percent forbid sexual contact with patients—all maxims held sacred in the classical version. The original calls for free tuition for medical students and for doctors never to "use the knife" (that is, conduct surgical procedures)—both obviously out of step with modern-day practice. Perhaps most telling, while the classical oath calls for "the opposite" of pleasure and fame for those who transgress the oath, fewer than half of oaths taken today insist the taker be held accountable for keeping the pledge.
Yet you will turn right around and pull the lever for "baby killer" Romney, whose hands are soaked with the blood of innocent children in exchange for a few votes.
Perhaps Romney had an epiphany. Or perhaps unlike Obama he evolved to a higher state!
Do you have proof of this, SN?
Sure he did. As far as I am concerned, Mitt Romney is the essence of evil, just like his opponent.
It is still a free country but if Obama wins don't complain when they come to take you away!
I need no lectures from you about the price of freedom and liberty.
No lecture; just a statement of extremely possible FACT!!!:BangHead:
