THE SPEECH OBAMA SHOULD GIVE

GOOD EVENING.

I REQUESTED THAT THE NETWORKS PROVIDE THIS TIME, SO THAT I MIGHT TALK DIRECTLY TO YOU, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

OUR COUNTRY HAS MANY CRITICAL DECISIONS TO MAKE;
HEALTH CARE, OUR FRAGILE ECONOMY, AND GLOBAL CLIMATE, AMONG OTHERS.

TONIGHT I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE MOST SERIOUS DECISION OUR GOVERNMENT CAN EVER MAKE.
A DECISION WITH THE MOST IMPORTANT OF CONSEQUENCES;
ONE DEALING WITH LIFE AND DEATH.

OF COURSE, I’M REFERRING TO WAR.

FEW TOOK ISSUE WITH OUR DECISION TO ELIMINATE AL QAEDA FROM AFGHANISTAN.
THEY WERE THE VERY PEOPLE WHO TORE DOWN TWO TOWERS FILLED WITH INNOCENT PEOPLE.

I BELIEVE THAT RATIONAL PEOPLE WOULD AGREE THAT THERE ARE SOME WARS WHICH MUST BE FOUGHT.
LIKEWISE, THERE ARE SOME WARS WHICH MUST NOT BE FOUGHT.

AS YOUR PRESIDENT, I, ALONG WITH MY ADVISORS, AND THE HEADS OF OUR MILITARY, MUST DECIDE WHICH OF THOSE TWO CONCLUSIONS MUST BE REACHED REGARDING THE WAR WE CONTINUE TO BE ENGAGED IN ACROSS THE DESERTS AND MOUNTAINS OF AFGHANISTAN.

NOW, AFTER 8 YEARS OF PURSUING AND ELIMINATING MOST
OF, IF NOT ALL, OF AL QAEDA IN AFGHANISTAN, THE QUESTION IS, WHAT NEXT?
HAVE WE ACHIEVED OUR OBJECTIVE?
ARE WE CLEAR ABOUT WHAT ARE OBJECTIVE EVEN IS?

AS AMERICAN, AS WELL AS COALITION DEATH TOLLS ARE INCREASING, DO WE GO ON AS WE ARE, FOR FIVE MORE YEARS? TEN MORE YEARS?
OR, DO WE BRING OUR MILITARY PEOPLE HOME, AND LET THE AFGHANIS
RECONSTRUCT THEIR OWN COUNTRY?

SO, AS WE DECIDE IN THE COMING DAYS WHETHER THIS IS A WAR WE MUST END, OR A WAR WE MUST FIGHT, I WANT TO LET YOU, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, KNOW ONE THING I WILL NOT DO....

SHOULD WE CONCLUDE, THAT THIS IS A WAR WHICH MUST BE FOUGHT TO INSURE OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AND, PERHAPS, OUR VERY SURVIVAL,
I WILL NOT LET OUR MILITARY FIGHT AS THEY ARE NOW.

IF WE MUST FIGHT, WE WILL FIGHT TO WIN.

WE CAN’T CLAIM THAT WE’RE FIGHTING FOR OUR SURVIVAL WHILE SO FEW AMERICANS FEEL THE PAIN OF WAR IN THEIR OWN FAMILIES, OR IN THEIR WALLETS.

ONE WOULD HAVE TO KNOCK ON 200 DOORS BEFORE REACHING A FAMILY WHO HAD A LOVED ONE SERVING IN THE MILITARY.
LIKEWISE, AS WE PRESENTLY OPERATE, THE COST OF THIS WAR WILL BE PAID FOR BY AMERICAN CITIZENS YET UNBORN.

THEREFORE, I’LL INSTITUTE AN IMMEDIATE DRAFT UNLIKE ANY IN OUR HISTORY.
I PROPOSE A LOTTERY DRAFT OF EVERY AMERICAN BETWEEN THE AGES OF 18 AND 24 REGARDLESS OF SEX, EDUCATION, OCCUPATION, OR ANY OTHER CRITERIA OTHER THAN SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES.
THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS. NONE.

FURTHERMORE, I’LL INSTITUTE A WAR- TAX OF 3% OF INCOME, FOR EVERY AMERICAN.
AGAIN, THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS.

IF OUR COUNTRY IS IN DANGER AND OUR LIVES ARE UNDER THREAT, WE WILL FIGHT THIS WAR LIKE WE MEAN IT.

ALL OF US.

THANK YOU AND GOOD NIGHT.

BREAKING NEWS:

LISBON - This evening, after reading Bruce Stasiuk's blog, President Obama is supporting a draft for wars in the Middle East.

The bill will be brought to the House of Representatives by Congressman Charles Rangal (D-NY). In fact, Congressman Rangal is so enthusiastic about said measure that he will introduce the bill 3 times, retroactively. More details here:

Why are americans so quick to support war, which ends lives, but so slow to support national healthcare, which saves lives?

How unpopular President Obama would be if he dared to say such words to his liberal fans.

I commend you for daring to utter such unpopular words yourself.

I do believe in the draft. I also believe that all Americans should be called to serve in the military. Think of the blend of people we would have serving our country, a diverse group that could contribute and get so much in return. They would carry that experience into the rest of their lives, to give them a respect and pride for America that no other experience could illicit.

The world is rapidly becoming a scarier place. As nice as World Peace is something to aspire to, the world is not ready for that now, or probably not in the near future. Between religion and land, there is enough fuel to keep fighting for centuries more...it is the human condition, since the beginning and probably, till the end.

And, in times of peace, the military could be used as the greatest work force for this nation. Obama claims to be such an advocate of volunteerism, well, this is the ultimate service, service to your country.

And, Mhanlee, maybe we should focus on the healthcare issue and forget fighting these battles. Cause we'll sure as hell need that care when the terrorists gain headway in their dream of ending the world of all Americans.

Obama is an incompetent manchild. I wouldn't elect him dog catcher. He and Pelosi and Reed and their minions are destroying this great country. If they get their healthcare, their cap and trade and their immigration amnesty this country will not be worth fighting for and if there ever was a draft I would personally drive my son to Canada.

quicksand said...

DEAR IMPALER,

MAYBE MORE PEOPLE SHOULD DRIVE THEIR KIDS TO CANADA WHENEVER WE DECIDE TO CONSTRUCT A WAR.
QUESTION: WOULD YOU HAVE MADE THE TRIP TO CANADA IF YOUR SON HAD BEEN DRAFTED TO FIGHT IN IRAQ?
VIETNAM?

THANKS FOR THE INPUT.

ThePoliticalImpaler said...

I didn't vote for the I DIOT a second time because of Iraq and I would have taken him to Canada. During the Viet Nam war I was draft age and too brain washed to know any better but the country was different then. I really believe that given the path this country is on it is not worth fighting for. I want all our troops stationed around the globe brought home immediately and let everyone fight their own battles.

quicksand said...

C'MON NOW IMPALER...WE HAVE MILITARY IN ONLY ABOUT 135 OF THE PLANET'S 191 COUNTRIES.
IT'S NOT LIKE WE'RE PUSHY OR ANYTHING.

YUP.......WE'LL CURE THE WORLD.
MAYBE WE SHOULD TRY A SELF-CURE INSTEAD.

Quicksand:
Be careful. Watch what you say, as in "...we should try (as a country)a self cure." If Glen Beck gets wind of this you could provoke a rage or a crying jag.

Maybe you can hijack his teleprompter and then you can be sure that he will deliver your speech eloquently.

quicksand said...

ANON,

ARE YOU REALLY TROUBLED BECAUSE OBAMA USES A TELEPROMPTER?
