I am unequivocably for Obama. I believe that if we elect McCain/Palin, we will have given Bush III the keys to the henhouse. He seems so out of touch with the sufferings of the common man. When he talks about the economy, all he seems to say he wishes to do is lower taxes, lower taxes, lower taxes--mainly on the rich, and on big oil. The assumption has been that if we reward big business and cut entitlement programs, in the long term the rewards will trickle down to the common working person. But have eight years of such policies worked? I think at this point, McCain is going to have to have a miracle in order to win. He is losing battleground states by the moment. As much as I like Sarah Palin--she's cute, has superb speaking abilities and feminine charm--I do not think I could trust her to be able to answer a 3:00 a.m emergency phone call adequately, esp. if the person on that other end has the message that, God forbid, Mr. McCain has passed away. What do you think?

Well, personally speaking, I agree 100% that McCain is no better than Bush. I am scared about some of the things McCain is wanting to do, and the thing that scares me the most, is if something did happen to McCain in office, who would Palin have to turn too? She cannot stand on her own two feet and talk about what is important, etc. so she scares me. I will be voting for Obama as well. I am not sure he is the Best choice out there, but he is all we have unless we want 4 more or more yrs. of Bush.

I agree with most of what you say. Especially the part about trickle down economics. The only thing that ever trickles down is the bill. I'm also voting for Obama. I disagree about Sarah Palin. I don't find her cute. I find her annoying and the thought of her in the vice presidency is frightening even after eight years of Cheyney.

I happen to agree completely with you except for the Palin is cute part. I just don't see it. Sorry. I have never seen where trickle down economics work, I think a flow up economics might work though. People spending get manufactures producing products and services.

Chuck Baldwin 2008, let's get back to the Constitution and away from fascism and socialism. McCain is a flip flopping war mongor. Obama is a socialist. They both supported Bush's Patriot Acts 1 & 2, the FISA rulings, our preemptive position against Iran, and numerous other anti-American stances. Neither of them are promoting CONSTITUTIONAL policies. Obama would be the leser of the 2 evils, however I will be voting for someone with AMERICAN perspectives, CHUCK BALDWIN. Some people are weary of him because of his "conspiracy theories", however he is the only candidate running who is in favor of CONSTITUTIONAL government, which is more important than anything at this point. Our government is controlled by the Federal Reserve Bank, they are responsible for inflating our dollar and bankrupting our markets, but neither candidate approaches this problem at all.

I want to see the person best qualified for the job to win! Unfortunately, they're not running...
