Couldn't have said it better.

This morning, I came across an interesting news article, regarding Dr. James Dobson's political action group, Focus On The Family Action. It has published a "letter from the future," written from the viewpoint of an individual Christian living in the year 2012.
Read it here.
It is, I fear, more than a bit accurate. If you share that perspective, voting for anyone other than John McCain and Sarah Palin is a remarkably bad idea. And if you don't share that perspective, you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

I found this earlier today at BeliefNet.com, and after picking my jaw up off the floor, though it was worth letting you know about it.
Familiar with the song "Lord Prepare Me To Be A Sanctuary"? Here we have someone who's done a little lyric surgery, changing "Lord" to "Love." And love for whom, you might ask? Why, the Lightworker himself, Barack Obama.
God forbid that enough of Obama's cult followers vote on Tuesday, November 4th to see him become the next President. As I've observed before, and as Joe Biden has promised, an Obama Presidency will be loaded with trouble.

This is, in a word, disturbing. As is the newest addition to this article--scroll down so you don't miss it.
Particularly if you're a parent.
(EDITED TO ADD: Here's the video in question.)
(Hat tip to Nikki Shepherd.)
Obama supporters are now enlisting children to sing the praises of their Dear Leader. (And I don't use the term lightly.) They have a lovely, innocuous statement on the home page of SingForChange.com--let's examine it together. Quoting thusly, and like so (in italics):
Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon, when 22 children, ages 5-12, gathered
All on their own, of course. In matching t-shirts. In front of an Obama backdrop. Even the synchronized hand motions were the children's idea. And they just happened to get together in the presence of (as is mentioned elsewhere on their site) "three High Definition cameras (Panasonic HVX250’s)" and an "RED camera set up on a SteadiCam." It's not exactly Andy Hardy putting on a show in a barn, is it?
to sing original songs
Let's pull over and park there for a few minutes.
"Original songs?" If you've ever worked around a children's choir of any sort, you know that "original songs" have to be rehearsed. A lot.
Here. Examine the lyrics. The first song was allegedly penned by a 9-year-old:
WE’RE GONNA CHANGE THE WORLD
Music and lyrics by Lily Campbell
We’re gonna spread happiness
We’re gonna spread freedom
Obama’s gonna change it
Obama’s gonna lead ‘em
We’re gonna change it
And rearrange it
We’re gonna change the world.
SING FOR CHANGE
Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada
Now’s the moment, lift each voice to sing
Sing with all your heart!
For our children, for our families,
Nations all joined as one.
Sing for joy and sing abundant peace,
Courage, justice, hope!
Sing together, hold each precious hand,
Lifting each other up;
Sing for vision, sing for unity,
Lifting our hearts to Sing!
YES WE CAN
Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada
Yes we can
Lift each other up
In peace, in love, in hope
For the record, Kathy Sawada is the "choir director" in the aforementioned video, and (surprise!) an Obama supporter. But let's continue...
in the belief that their singing would lift up our communities for the coming election. Light, hope, courage and love shine through these non-voting children who believe that their very best contribution to the Obama campaign is to sing.
A 5-year-old wants to sing for the Obama campaign? Really? Now, a 12-year-old responding to Obama propaganda is one thing, but are we seriously supposed to believe that the youngest members of the Dear Leader Singers independently voiced a desire to sing so that Obama might get elected?
To be involved in a cult of personality is one of the least rational things I can imagine. I've seen people who do this with this entire Obama nonsense, and I've seen them up close, too, in other venues. Such misplaced worship is, indeed, disturbing.
EDITED TO ADD: Want another example of Obama Youth, particularly since the previously referenced Sing For Change video has mysteriously disappeared? Here you go:
