7 March 2008

Frankfurt/M. - The Rhein-Main for Obama group continues to grow as the word gets out that even we expats can Stand Up and convince others that Sen. Barack Obama would make the best next President.

A group of about 10 persons was on hand in the Frankfurt Marriott on 5 March to discuss the Ohio and Texas primaries and caucuses that took place a day earlier. We all agreed that no fat lady has sung in this contest. New members came from Wiesbaden and the Taunus to join us Frankfurters.

The next meeting is set for Wednesday 19 March at 8 pm in the Marriott's Expressivo coffee shop. By that time we should have another batch of OBAMA '08 buttons, bumper stickers and even (New!) polo
shirts. All contributions to obtain such political goodies naturally goes directly to the Obama campaign. Not only is this a good fund raiser, but it also helps us demonstrate who we support in his bid for the Democratic nomination, and after that tough contest is won, on to the General Election in November.

Another good reason to attend the March 19th meeting here in Frankfurt is to get all the information you may need on how to Register and Vote in this federal election. Our Voting Assistance officer has his book covering every state back home and the necessary links on how to get the information you need.

Anyone interested, including all still sitting on the fence, are welcome to join this group to discuss the issues and hear what Sen. Obama has to say on what interests you. But at the end of the day, meaning by the end of August when the Democratic Convention decides who will be the candidate, we want to make sure everyone sees Barack Obama for what he is -- the only candidate who can bridge the
Democratic-Republican gap, obviously the White-Black gap, and who would present a new face to the world, an intelligent, inspiring and feet-on-the-ground President whose biography shows he has the values and inner compass that we want to see in our Top Person.
 
If you agree Now is the Time to Stand Up for change, for hope, and for Barack Obama, come to talk with us on 19 March. Yes We Can!

    Hilary and Obama are both left leaning extremists. They are both liars and they have no idea how to make our nation more secure and getting the economy to grow. We have given other nations our work jobs and they are all flaunting that in our face. Both of these candidates are way off the mark and if they become Pres. look out for radical mavements.

    Dear Mr. Levy,
    While admittedly the current administration in the White House has performed poorly in a number of areas, most all of our current economic troubles would appear to be due to following what has been the mantra of the Democratic party for the last 50 years - tax and spend. And their patheic Republic successors continued to follow the same bankrupt practices, which has help put us into the troubles we're in now!
    That we need new thinking in the White House and in governemtn in general is unquestionable. However, when both of the Democrats are appealing to the electorate using the lowest common denominators of "gimmes" in the form of increasing bloat in goverment programs with all the associated waste, billions in funds to illegal aliens, etc., it is quite amazing to hear you declare they provide the best candidates for the presidency!

    Hillary's record speaks for itself...and how! And for those of us who currently live in Illinois or who have family living there, Obama's associations with crooked polticos and criminal associates, his highly suspect real estate purchase from one of the "associates" (who is even now in criminal court on trial), and the astounding associations with a blatantly anti-American RACIST pastor and an unreptentant Weatherman terrorist (see http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/chi-kass-23-apr23,1,4967065.column)indicates he is either one of the most naive politicians in the last 100 years or else has such poor judgement as to make him unfit to hold a political office with such responsibilities as the president would have!

    Essentially all of the reasons I've heard to vote for the candidates from the Democratic party are based on unstinting emotionalism, with little rational thought involved. Your own statements - "To boost the Economy of the USA, you need a new mentality and a hard working and dynamic man, and the market around the world depends on a strong US, it is time to love each other, and leave race race issues behind, lets grow up. Fact is that OBAMA is by far the best candidate, no heart feelings, help the world and your self!!!! is rife with emotionalism and not one fact to convince any thinking person why one could possibly consider voting for either of those two candidates! To the contrary, the absence of verifiable information, specifically regarding Obama's supposed qualifications to become president and regarding WHAT HE ACTUALLY PROPOSES TO DO clearly mark him as just another "pretty face" that should hopefully leave the public venue before he does too much damage!

    Levy,
    My friend I am not BLACK, my wife is, I live on a Caribbean Island of Curacao, I am not a Liberal, so sorry. To boost the Economy of the USA, you need a new mentality and a hard working and dynamic man, and the market around the world depends on a strong US, it is time to love each other, and leave race race issues behind, lets grow up. Fact is that OBAMA is by far the best candidate, no heart feelings, help the world and your self!!!!

    Race baiting is out of place here. What we need are the facts about the candidates, which have essentially been all but ignored by the primary media, except for perhaps Fox News, unitl now. The little that is coming out to reveal the true Obama is not good: he has been member of a race-baiting anti-white church for 20_ years; he's been deeply involved with Illinois politicos and associates who are outright criminals (Rezko), and with the trial underway, much more may be revealed. The choices this election are poor at best, but the demonstrable incredible ongoing mendacity of the Clinton candidate, and the clear vacuity of the Obama (only knows he wants change, but not one iota of clear information about what that change would be), as well as irrefutable instances of his own bouts with disingenuous answers that later had to be "reworked" make one ask what choice is there?! Currently it can only be 'none of the above!'

    Hey Levy,

    You and liberal idiots who think like you, should move to Haiti or South Africa so you can be close to your nigger buddies!
    Tha LAST thing America needs is a half-breed, nigger Muslim or some man-hating , pro-faggot, pro-homo bull dyke thief as President! The whites here are already being bombarded with an anti-Christian, anti-white male agenda from the kikes who run the media and political office. If we get a lesbo like Hillary or a filthy nigger like Obama, we're really fucked! We'll become another sorry-assed kike puppet like the UK or OZ.
    John Taylor Bowles for President!

    Do you live in Germany? If so, there is a group in Frankfurt that is going to meet I believe on the 17th. Check the other postings or do a search on the Internet. If I find the time and place, I will post it for you.

    This may be a little premature. I am not opposed to Obama, but for the moment I am still a "Hillary" supporter. Is there a meeting for her somewhere in the area.

    IMHO, everyone is missing the boat. It's not the president that truly runs the nation. It's our overpaid Senate and Congress. True, the president has the responsibility to oversee our government and represent the US world wide, but the bottom lines is that congress holds the purse strings and has the power to pass bills on what the president requests. As it stands today, again INMHO, we don't have much to choose from in the way of canadates and I would agree that Obama looks far better than Cliton or McCain.

    Obama is more of a problem than a solution for the United States. The USA has survived with worse if it happens.
