My husband and I were just talking about this tonight as we were watching the RNC. If Bush is responsible for our falling economy what is the worst McCain will do? Will gas prices go even higher? Will the housing crisis get even worse? Will we wage more wars against more countries? What will happen to our rising healthcare prices? What will happen to our schools? And the same question goes to those who blame our democratic congress for everything our country is going through. Will Obama cause gas prices to go higher? Will he cause our housing crisis to get worse? Will he wage more wars? What will happen to our healthcare? What will happen to our schools? What do you think is the worst that will happen if either candidate is elected president?

If obama gets elected, he will end up taking over America and converting everyone to Muslim law.

I wish there were other choices as well. I wish that a non-major party were a valid option. I refuse to support the extremist barack obama. I want to vote for a Christian Pro-Life candidate. I want someone who will encourage morality in America again!! I think the worst that can happen with obama is that America becomes an anti-white muslim nation. With either one, I believe that people will not be able to continue the lifestyles they have been accustomed to. People will have to stop being fat and lazy and start walking or biking much more often, maybe wear a sweater when its cold instead of cranking the heater. Maybe learn to live within a budget, that kind of thing.

both candidates dont have control over terrorism or the economy, they can only hope its gets better while they are in office.

If McCain is elected, the worse thing that will happen is that we are in Iraq for four more years, and then we also get into war with Iran. Gas prices will rise, taxes will rise, and the economy will be doomed forever. Schools will be worse than what they are now because no funding goes into our schools, the money is all invested into the war. Only the rich have healthcare. If Obama gets elected, gas prices slightly go up, and the ecomony is still screwed, but at least things are attempting to look better. "No Child Left Behind" is seen as a failure (it is already), but elected officials are doing their best to come of with a new plan to improve schools because it is no going to happen over night. "Universal healthcare" is being discussed, but it has not been completely approved of by the government yet.

*ponders* I've come to realize how...desperate this election year is. And at this point, either way, we're taking a huge gamble with this country's future, especially if people decide to fall back into complacency after November. Basically we face a number of potential hardships, practically everything could get worse to the point where the people may be on their own...or they may find themselves strangled by their own government...or both. We do stand on the edge of something big. This entire country may be completely recognizable in four years. Maybe in a good way, maybe in a bad way, maybe just in a different way. The worst case scenario? We could elect someone who turns out to be so incompetent that they anger some trigger-happy loon with nukes and get blown up, and not have to worry about crap like the economy sucking or horrible healthcare...or unaffordable food. I guess that's always the worst case scenario isn't it? So meh.

you know I have asked this question many times over and I have decided that I would rather deal with more Bush agenda than the agenda of someone who supports divisiveness in this country. At least we know what the Bush agenda is and there cant be any more surprises. With Obama and his eagerness to further his career who knows what kind of bad decisions he will make. It was refreshing to hear Palin speak tonight and was the first time in my entire voting lifetime that I have listened to a Republican candidate with enthusiasm. It didnt sound like the plan McCain and Palin have is to do more of the same old same old and it seems more likely that true change is going to come from the ticket who has actually accomplished some change. I cant believe I am going to vote for a Republican, but I sure as heck am..and with pride!!

I wish that there were more canidates to choose from to be honest with you. I personally won't vote for Obama because I consider him part of the Chicago politicans. If there is a yes, no, or a present button I guess Obama will be able to make a decision. He of course will hit present. As for Mc Cain I can't really come up with a good reason to vote for him either. I do however like Palin. I also don't think that you can blame just one political party for how messed up Washington is. There is no one person there that can mees up the whole nation by themselves.
