Well when the government dips into your paycheck to "spreads the wealth around"....maybe then you and half the country will finally wake up from the kool-aid trance.

Reagan spread the wealth too. That's been discussed on here already. Ideology be darned!

The fact Obama even has a chance to win this thing is absolutely disgusting and a indication that America is truely on the decline as a world power. We got the socialism. All we need now is a little fear and propaganda from the government and we have our fascism.

Stop being so dramatic. You sound like me when I'm on one of my conspiracy rants.

We're in trouble no matter who is in power.

Better keep a reserve of money under your mattress. You never know when you will need it to get out of here.

I've been posting about our economic collapse all year. Welcome to the party. It's not because of what Obama might
do.

And if you feel bad about your country because of what a politician says or does, you've got to rethink what
you let affect you. I understand being frustrated and disgusted with our politicians and the system. I'm
right there with you. But the country is still great.

I am not expecting anything out of Obama. Potential is there, IMO, for some very good things, but until I see
stuff happen, I'll remain skeptical. The potential for bad things is there too but I think he'll go centrist and
try to stop all of this partisan bickering.

I still hope that we get open debates in 2012 and a serious 3rd party guy to shake up the system.

I am not excited about any of the 3rd party guys. I might just write in Ventura.

.....and now support John McCain, your priority is your party over your country. Ronald Reagan's Chief of Staff and Collin Powell are men who consider their country first.

Sure wish Powell was running for Pres then...

He's not bad. I have to read (quickly) more about him. I DID watch him in the debate and liked what I heard.

To be perfectly honest, the only person I felt that had the charisma and policies that excited me was Ventura.
It helps that I went to see him speak and he answered every one of my UFO questions without smirking.

What does Obama offer again?

Ive bben waiting for that answer for about a year now. The only thing I get told is "CHANGE".  LOL

Both candidates have laid out their platform completely.  If you don't know at this point what both plan, your poorly informed.

If Reagan was alive today, he'd be shaking his head if he knew his chief of staff was endorsing a candidate that only cares about expanding the size of government to solve everyone's problems. That flies completely in the face of everything Reagan supported.

"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.' "
-Ronald Reagan

"Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives"
-Ronald Reagan

"Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."
-Ronald Reagan

Wonder how Obama is going to pay off all these bribes....

LOL!

Those are some nice quotes, but what about Reagan's earned income tax credit?

Socialism!

Sorry, I know this is a bit of an inflammatory post, but...you started it!  :)

I'm considering Baldwin, but as a group, this year's 3rd party candidates don't excite.  I'm considering Barr as well.

I just don't see how anybody can support a candidate who has run such a poor campaign. That doesn't mean a vote
for Obama.

Vote 3rd party if nothing else.



A 3rd party vote is a wasted vote.

That is such junk.  If you are tired of corporate interests running the country, a vote for either major party candidate is a waste.

Powell is a man of integrity. He is one republican I would have no problem voting for. Like Obama, he has earned each and every accomplishment throughout his lifetime and he is an honest man. McCain repeats lies over and over again in hopes that some fools will believe him. From some of the posts here, it's working.

This forum has changed 0 peoples minds on who they are going to vote for.

That's not true.  I was going to vote for Obama.    I wanted a change from the disaster we had in George Bush.  And changing parties in the white house is a bigger change than just changing to another republican.    But this forum convinced me to vote McCain.    It wasn't the McCain supporters who changed my mind, it was the Obama supporters and their vicious attacks against anything and everything that wasn't anti-Republican.   The attacks were so severe and unfair that it caused me to take another look at the situation.   I realized that people voting for Obama are not doing it because they support his views, but rather because they hate Bush so much.   I also realized that was why I would have voted for Obama as well.   So I stepped back and tried to look at things as if Bush had not screwed everything up for 8 years, and i just looked at the candidates themselves.   Strictly comparing McCain's experience and policies to Obama's, it turns out that McCain is a better candidate.     I do think Biden is a better VP candidate than Palin and wish McCain would have chosen a different vp.   But McCain is better qualified to be president than Obama - in my opinion.

That's a well said analysis, Java. I'm not sure it'll change anyone ELSE'S mind, but it's at the very least thought provoking.

Java, you were posting crap about how Barack Obama was a muslim like it made him the devil.  You have totally been for McCain the whole time.  Not to say that it's an invalid position, but there are folks on both side who support their candidate for all the right reasons.

I wouldn't base my choice on what some anonymous dewd on the internet posted on a message board.

Bush was the only logical pick when Kerry was the other option, and McCain is goign to do far less destruction to our country than Obama. SO I, like all others you are speaking about, are just trying to pick the lesser of 2 evils who will do the least damage at the current time given the opponent theyre running against.

I might even suggest that if you voted for Kerry and are voting for Obama that YOU vote for your party and not for your country.

You don't know what you are talking about.   My previous post tells the true story.   I was originally for Obama.   And that's a fact.

I post alot of goofy things like he's a muslim devil and such only because I find it humorous.   I don't believe that.   It's very hard to tell when I'm joking or serious - even for me.   haha.

But in all seriousness, I wanted Obama originally because he would help my credibility with the Indonesians.  And that is where I live.   But this board changed my mind on that for the reasons I previously mentioned.

having voted for Perot, Dole, W, W, and now McCain - i will be 2 and 3 as a voter...  that said, claiming that anyone voting for Mac is a vote for party over country is as ridiculous a statement as ever posted on the board.

ok, about half the country feels that way - so what are you sayin'?  only a little more than half the country cares because they're voting for a virtual unknown, potential thug, and longshot to succeed?  just looney...
