    This letter deserves circulation. There are millions who feel the same way. Interesting and perhaps indisputable points. For some reason, liberals really detest this letter, and they see hate in the words rather than facts and opinions. Keep it moving till the election. Send to everyone and hope that all will at least read some of it.

    Dear Mr. Obama:

    It is August 30, 2008. My name is Mark Gregg. I am a 50 something, conservative white male. I have followed your campaign closely, including the speeches you and others made at the democratic national convention. I am respectfully providing you with seven simple reasons why I could never vote for you. I believe that many people share my opinion. I do think that there needs to be an awakening to the fact that you are not a (the) messiah that the media and liberal Hollywood entertainers are trying to portray you as.

    1. I hear your mantra of change, change, and change. Yet, you picked a long term, liberal, Washington insider (Joe Biden) to be your running mate. This is NOT change. It is a move that hypocritically refutes the very thing you supposedly stand for. Your campaign then slammed John McCain for picking Sarah Palin, because she is NOT a Washington insider. She is a maverick who cleaned-up Alaska 's quagmire of political scandals. Which way is it, Barack? Is it okay for you to pick a 30-year Washington insider under the mantra of "change," but not okay for John McCain to pick a smart, aggressive, reformer?

    2. You have the single most liberal voting record in the senate. This indicates to me and others like me that you may very well be an angry black man seeking to punish our country for sins of a different generation. I am not racist. I have some biases just like you and every other human alive. Unlike the democratic party who claims to be for the minority (but their record heavily refutes this), I will give any person who truly needs help, help. I married a "minority" girl 35 years ago (she is Hispanic) and have seen the evils of prejudice first hand. However, I have also seen my wife, children and others in her family throw off the veil of self-imposed prejudicial bondage and move ahead They love our country and do not view themselves any different than I view myself as a citizen of this country. Your lovely wife so disappointed people like me during this campaign when she stated it was the first time she had ever been proud of this country. She apparently never noticed the massive aid we give dozens of other countries. She apparently never noticed the sacrifice of literally millions of veterans who helped make this country a free nation and helped liberate other nations from brutal dictators such as Adolf Hitler. She apparently does not remember that she attended an Ivy League university with scholarship money that ultimately (at least some of it) was paid for by our taxes. This troubles me more than you know. She is an angry black woman who appears to not like her country very much. I don't want her representing me to the rest of the world.

    3. You claim Christianity but apparently haven't realized that the Bible teaches that he, who does not work, does not eat. The Bible does not say or even suggest that he, who CANNOT work, should not eat. Yet, your liberal policies reward people who are capable of working but choose not to do so. This bothers me. I know that if you are elected our taxes will spiral upwards. You should heed the words of Winston Churchill: "We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle." If I like anything about you, it is your campaign promise to balance the federal budget. Unfortunately, we have heard this many times from different politicians and we realize that when you energize the liberals, Nancy Pelosi, Robert Byrd, Ted Kennedy, etc., etc., and the many other democrats like them, a balanced budget will never, ever happen on your watch.

    4. During your question and answer session with Rick Warren of Saddleback Church your answer concerning the question of where does life begin, stunned me: "Above your pay grade?" Does this mean when something bad happens as President of this nation that you are going to look at your salary to determine if you can respond? Is that what all the "present" votes in Chicago stood for "above your pay grade" and why you would not take a stand on the issues at hand? I am sorry, but this was the most serious gaffe I have seen you make. Frankly, it shows me that you are pandering in the most obvious manner. You will choose your words not from your heart, but from an agenda that I believe you hide from the American people.

    5. If anything stands out about you it is probably your appeasement mentality. In this era of rampant, radical Islamic extremism and with the latest stunt pulled by the reenergized Russian government, I am not sure appeasement is healthy. Do you remember Neville Chamberlain of Great Britain in the 1930's prior to WW II? I again revert to the words of Winston Churchill: "An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last."

    6. You and your party tacitly believe that a 13 or 14 year old girl must have the parents' approval to have the school nurse provide them with a Tylenol when they have a headache at school Yet, this same girl can become pregnant and the school can skirt her off to a clinic and abort the child in her body without the parents knowing or being notified. This scares the hell out of me. You have two little girls. Would you be upset if this happened to them and you were not informed? Then why do you stand for this? It makes no sense to me.

    7. My seventh and final point is your supporters. I have watched the Hollywood entertainers that support you, systematically embrace Hugo Chavez of Venezuela , Iranian Dictator Ahmadenijad and others like them. I see the continuous smut and garbage produced by Hollywood that dams America constantly, and the very people who promote you most vigorously. It is not a positive point to me and others like me to see these overpaid, bizarre, poor examples of human existence fawn over you and push you and your liberal agenda as hard as they do. The way that I see it; when the devil is for you, we should question whether or not we should be against you. In closing, I just want you to know that you scare me. I cannot vote for you. It is not because of your skin color. It is because these items and many others like them. Do not claim that my dislike for you is race based. It is because I do not feel you have the best interests of this nation and its people at heart.

    Respectfully, Mark A. Gregg

    Great letter, all good points, but I think that the writer left a few things out:

    8) Why has Obama lied about his associations w/ the likes of Bill Ayers, a terrorist; Rev. Wright, a racist; Tony Resko, a convicted slum lord?

    9) Taking tax money from people who work and giving it to people who don't is Socialism no matter what you call it.

    10) Amending a million $$$ plus earmark for your wife's company to a Senate bill and then her getting a huge raise is a little obvious wouldn't you say.

    11) ACORN / paying them X amount of $$$ for every new registered voter. Where did you think they got all those voters.

    I am really worried that the majority of the public has bought into his line and chooses to ignore so many horrible things. Of course, we have the main-stream media to blame for that.
