What Will Happen During An Obama Presidency?

There is no question that many of us conservatives are very disappointed that the Republican candidate in this election is NOT the ideal conservative. In fact, some of us don’t consider him to be conservative at all. Nevertheless, John McCain is the candidate and we must support him.

Dennis Prager is one of the most articulate, intelligent, and reasoned conservative political thinkers and philosophers on talk radio.

He has just posted an important article on Townhall.com titled, “Why I Support John McCain.” Every conservative who is considering not voting or casting a vote for a third party or write-in candidate should read it. We all want the ideal candidate and the ideal presidency but we cannot afford to act in a way that, in effect, says, "if we can't have what we want, we will destroy what we have.
Dennis Prager makes several, very compelling arguments and clearly describes the unprecedented potential for the serious damage that most likely will occur in this country as a result of the first leftist presidency in our nation’s history.

Here are some excerpts from his post:

“Conservatives who will not vote for McCain are well-intentioned utopians.”

“…given how active most liberal judges are, it won't matter much if the country has some conservative epiphany and then elects a Republican president and Congress. Because even if the Congress and the president will not pass liberal legislation, a liberal Supreme Court will. On almost any social issue that matters -- the right to bear arms, late-term abortion, the definition of marriage, capital punishment, and many others -- a liberal Supreme Court will rule on these issues, and there will be nothing that a post-Obama Republican president, even with a Republican congress, will be able to do about them.”

“However noble their intentions, conservatives who do not vote for John McCain will be morally complicit in what happens to America during an Obama presidency.”

Does this mean conservatives take responsibility for what has happened during the last seven years of the Bush presidency?

Waterboarding sanctioned once as torture, now embraced?
Revenge for critcising the Iraq policy?
Lying under the cover of not remembering?
Placing incompetant people in positions as a loyalty pay back?
The environment sacrificed on behalf of big coal?

Fear and greed seem to have a firm hold.
