I have no idea how I stumbled upon this gem, but I’m sure glad as hell that I did. Expose Obama(.com) is a website funded by the National Campaign Fund. After a quick look at their issues, I realized why I have the political stance that I do. Check it:
BARACK OBAMA ON ABORTION
Barack Obama is undecided on whether life begins at conception and he would expand access to contraception. He is rated 100% by National Abortion Rights Action League on pro-choice votes in 2005, 2006 & 2007, and rated 0% by the National Right to Life.
He believes the Constitution is a living document and is opposed to strict constructionism, he thinks moral arguments from pro-lifers are counterproductive. He supports Roe v. Wade and will protect a â€œwoman’s right to choose.â€
God damn women, huh? Always wanting equality and all that jazz… trying to take control of their body? Not on my watch!
BARACK OBAMA ON AFFIRMATIVE ACTION
Barack Obama supports affirmative action in colleges and government and would re-introduce the Equal Rights Amendment. He is rated 100% by the NAACP.
Just like the women, those damn colored folk want to have equal rights. Can you believe them?!
BARACK OBAMA ON GAY RIGHTS
Barack Obama believes that being gay or lesbian is not a choice, and that decisions about marriage should be left to the states. He sees homosexuality as no more immoral than heterosexuality, and is OK with exposing 6-year-olds to gay couples. He views the gay rights movement somewhat like the civil rights movement. He supports health benefits for gay civil partners. He opposes gay marriage but supports civil union and gay equality. He would include sexual orientation in anti-discrimination laws. He is rated 89% by the HRC which indicates a pro-gay-rights stance.
Voted NO on constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. (Jun 2006)
Once more with that equality bullshit. It’s almost like he believes the gays are actually people.
BARACK OBAMA ON ENERGY & OIL
Barack Obama would raise fuel efficiency standards to 40 mpg to reduce long-term demand, and push to reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2050. He believes in aggressively addressing accelerating climate change, and supports cap-and-trade on carbon emissions. He does not believe we can drill our way out of our â€œaddictionâ€ to oil. He wants 20% of our nation’s power supply from renewable sources by 2020.
What is he, some kind of hippy?! Like my hero Sarah Palin says: Drill Baby, Drill!
I’m starting to get over the fact that our government has taken on this evangelical christian laced perspective over the last 8 years. But hey, what do I know? I’m just some jerk with a computer…
