I get these phone calls constantly asking me who I am going to vote for and I just have no idea. I havent followed the campaigns at all and now with only a few months left I am wondering who I should vote for. I want to know the real facts and thats hard with all the mud slinging. Who do you think I should vote for and why. I want the economy to go down as well as someone who is pro-life.

Noone can make that decision for you except you. Everyone has a reson that they are going to vote for McCain and everyone has a reason the are going to vote for Obama. Both sides are going to give you reason on why you should vote for that canadate. But like I said you have to make the desision for yourself. You have a brain so use it.

When you say you want the economy to "go down," do you mean you want the crisis to go away? If this is the case, I'm afraid your choice involves sacrifice. Obama is the one most likely to fix the economy, but he is also pro-abortion. McCain is anti-abortion, but he has no idea how to fix the economy except another handout. Unfortunately, we've already gotten one, and the stock market still plummets because Bush (and McCain) want to deregulate the stock market. This is an elimination of checks and balances, which has allowed crooks (including politicians) to rob us. Obama will reimpose law and order upon those who think they are above it. I hope this helps somewhat. Sorry your choice isn't easier.

So yet another reason I wish we were allowed to go back and edit our discussions. I made a typo what I meant to say was that I want prices of oil and other items to go back down so consumers can afford more because right now the economy is so bad that everyone is struggling! I have heard that Obama is more into changing things were as McCain isnt but I'm not sure if thats true or not. I think if Obama becomes president it will be good for the United States to have the first African American presdident. It should hopefully make people who still feel hurt by segregation from way back finally feel like they have won their rights to equality once and for all! I really appreciate your response to my discussion and the fact that you took the time to read my discussion and letting me know how you feel.

Everybody makes mistakes. I figured you meant that you wanted inflation to go down; otherwise you would have to have been joking, like ClarusVisum said above. I agree with you when you say that having our first black president might lay to rest some of the antagonism toward whites. I have black friends, but was actually confronted once by a man who maintained no matter what I said that I was racist. It's like prejudice has shifted, with blacks very aggressively targeting whites. I would like nothing more than to live in harmony and equality with everyone around me. Good point! I am happy to have participated in your discussion, and hope to see more. Salute! -santuccie P.S.: Laughing at dumb jokes is still good for your health!!!
