". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Who Do We Want to Be?

Last week I wrote about some worrisome things happening in Canada. Here's one more I recently came across, highlighting the Canadian government's increasing hostility to religious freedom:

Canada Orders Christian Ministry Shut Down (HT: Sound Witness)

Why should we care about what's going on in Canada? Well, according to the Washington Times, an Obama presidency would mean a push towards making America look a lot more like our northern neighbor:

Obama's America is Canada

This election is pivotal for many reasons. And one of the questions facing us is whether we want to remain distinctly American or become just another essentially European nation, as our friends in Canada have decided to do. In spite of what seems to be a creeping socialistic mindset in our own country, I still think most Americans retain that independent, individualistic streak that has long been at the core of our strength. And I don't think we want to lose it. But if we wake up in January of 2009 to an Obama presidency, we may need to prepare to do just that.

I believe it's not socialistic, it's fascist.

Frighteningly so.

Take a gander and see the shenanigans going on... truly sophomoric and inane.
