This is the first election that I will be voting in, I am 25 years old I know that this is the biggest election were going to have. more people this election then any other probably. I dont know though if I like Obama or if he scares me, He wants to change so much I mean like everything......which is great, theres a lot that needs to be changed but I dont see how he can make all these promises and keep them. and not only that there are predictions about a great speaker being the Antichrist I know you all GASP but its just on my mind I do believe that the predictions in the bible are not literal I believe there simply predictions which you have to interpret cause theres not going to literally be a beast (at least I dont think) but I mean look at all the predictions that have already come true. anyways like I said I dont know if he scares me or not. It would be great if we could have someone in office that kept his promises. But then the only other choice we have is another bush term...........

Lately, yes Obama has been scaring me. He's been talking about plans that sound too unamerican to me like forcing "calling up" (forcing) 250,000 young people into Job Corps which is a training program where you live away from home in a facility similar to a juvenile detention center. What gives him the idea that he has the right to make these decisions for American children and young adults? He also wants to create a National Civilian Security Force which will be separate from the military. Hitler did the same thing. I have always felt that Obama was pretty far to the left but it's starting to look like he's waaaaay out there in la la land someplace.

Wow I didnt know about the job corps things, Why would he want that? what would that do? Yea He has way to many things he wants to do I think he needs to slow down a little bit and not try to change the world so fast people will get freaked out lol.

I think the bible should be taken at it's word. That said, I have no idea if Obama is the one spoken of in the bible as antichrist. I like his style, don't like much of his politics. I like that he wants change, i don't agree with much of the KIND of change he is promoting. Yea, he did rise ultra fast, and that is scary. for everyone. But I am not afraid of him.
