We would vote- if we could for Obama. 8 years of Bush
did a lot of harm to the whole world!

He sure did.
So why vote for Obama? It’s the same ..
In what way is McCain like those two? This goes in with what I’ve said, about Obama being a social experiment .. it’s all hype ..

We are Christian people, and would always have been Republican
in our views, but not now, not this time! We are definitely for Barack
Obama! His policies, are for the blessing of all Americans!
And he has LEADER qualities, and is a very respectable
and kind person also.
The first thing that changed our mind about John McCain and
Sarah Palin, was their lies, the hate, and the smear tactics against
Barack Obama, calling him a terrorist!!! Etc. etc.
We were so ashamed of all the things they said about him. Then when
we listened to Barack’s message, it is so deferent! It was about policies,
jobs, health, security helping the small business BY REDUCING THEIR
TAXES,…. It was SOOO different to McCain, & Pailin’s message!
Even just an hour ago, while it turned to early morning November 4th,
Palin was still ‘ranting & hollering’ against Obama going to kill small
Don’t the Republicans have any policies to preach about?? Or is this
their problem? ….. they DON’T , have nothing but the same old stuff that
ruined the country already!
For the record: We heard Barack many many times say that businesses up to
$250,000 a year would NOT have tax increases, and businesses below this
would get tax CUTS! But Palin and McCain insists to lie about what he said.
How can she call herself a Born Again Christian and keep telling lies?
Jesus said, “By their fruits you shall know them”
Also how concerned are you about John McCain’s age for President and the
risk of Sarah Palin having to step into his shoes if he became unwell? ….
Could she run the country? What experience has she about national
security etc. etc. ? My opinion is she would be FAR TOO RISKY!

John C., never called Obama a terrorist. Do you really think no one here will call you on that rediculous statement? Obama has never talked about anything but fluff and “change.” Great rhetoric, but empty and deceiving. What kind of change? Tell me, John C., what has Obama done as a senator that you really admire? What did he do as a State senator for Illinois? He did vote ¨Present¨over 100 times, which means “Ï can´t make up my mind on this important issue, or maybe I just don´t want you to know what I really think about it.” Yea…great leader. Tell me one time Obama did something, anything, to challenge the ultra-liberal Left wing of his party. (Well, besides voting not to give medical care to babies born with complications from botched abortions. Even the Leftists from Illinois voted in favor of that one.) What has Barak Obama run as a leader besides a crooked outfit, ACORN? At least Palin has executive experience and has challenged her own party and has ruffled feathers to get policy driven from her desk, and has gotten oil companies to step up to the plate for the people she represents. Oh yea…she´s pro-life and she hunts, so she´s a wack-job. Okay. Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Murtha and the rest of them driving this car without brakes is going to be a disaster for America – and THAT´S why ¨The World¨ wants Barak Obama to be its president. As for the Americans voting for this charlaton, lying imposter, you folks are either uninformed, Leftists, or hate your own country and want to see it brought to its knees. Remember the Reagan Revolution after four years of Carter? Aint nuttin´compared to what´s coming down the pike after four years of Obama.

John, I hear what you´re saying. But Obama´s numbers have changed. It was 250K, then it was 200K, and he wont tell of if that´s gross income for the business or net income for the business owner, or profits, or what. It´s like he doesn´t want us to know and the media won´t press him on it, nor will the hand-picked questioners ask him about it. At least he learned a lesson from Joe the Plaumber – don´t let anyone ask anymore questions! He´s so gaurded, and that scares me. Now the other day his surragates were saying they may have to go down to 150K. If that´s gross for a business, that IS small. Personally, as good as he sounds, I don´t want the government taking and redistributing the money I earn. Want to build highways and bridges and fund our defense, fine, but I´d rather take care of my own charitable donations.

McCain like those two = Bush and Obama
How does he compare?
Obama, hype = Obamania
Add the media to this it becomes a social experiment
Can I make it any clearer?
But thanx for reading.

Why are you, Jon, lumping Bush and McCain into the same sentence? They’re not the same.
Of course if you are blinded by an agenda .. the same can hardly be said of me (Democrat going for McCain). Christian or not, I doubt you are, but anyway..
1) Lies? Yes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3LZNc_TP_o
2) Hate? Now I know you never considered Palin
If anything I take solace in my hatred of Barack just how he apparently did so, in his memoirs, of the white race.
3) Smear tactics? You know it’s funny .. I’m not sure if we’re talking about the McCain-Palin ticket here or the Obama campaign .. tarnishing the legacy of the greatest living president, call him a racist ..
What a way to get ahead.
Nice. What is that if not egotistical? As a true christian you probably know that self righteousness is no virtue. But anyway ..
And if you come back and say that’s ok I’ll just label you a hypocrit. See? So easy ..
So you would always have been republican in your views yet go and embrace his policies? Hm. Hmm.
I like for a leader to have been tested by life. It keeps that enormous ego of theirs in check.
McCain has. Been (he says it too). Obama hasn’t.
You do know that Obama will not raise your taxes unless you make $250,000.. oops, $120,000 .. I mean teehee $50,000 a year …
Basically , he will raise your taxes.
Really class warfare is not cool. Redistrubution of wealth.. that is no way to create wealth.
I find it puzzling how you can say kill ’em when it is Obama’s tax plan that even puts Joe the Plumber off ..
See, Bush is a Republican. The party of conservatives. But not conservative himself. How can this be? He and the neocons hijacked the party in ’00. Just as the Dem party now has been hijacked by a group on the left.
So blame them for the ruined status of the country, not the policies (except the socialist kind) of either party ..

Oh, btw ..you know what America’s first line of missile interceptor is that protects the entire United States?
Answer – 49th Missile Defense Battalion of Alaska National Guard.
Do you know what the ONLY National Guard unit on permanent active duty is?
Answer – the 49th Missile Defense Battalion of Alaska National Guard
Do you know who is the Commander in Chief of the 49th Missile Defense Battalion of Alaska National Guard?
That’s right. Gov Sarah Palin, Alaska
And what U.S. governor is routinely briefed on highly classified military issues, homeland security and counter terrorism?
You guessed it; Governor Sarah Palin
She has a higher classified security rating than either candidate of the Democratic Party. According to the Washington Post, she first met with McCain in February but nobody ever found out. This is a woman used to keeping secrets.
She can be entrusted with national security .. because she already is.
