Barack Obama must be an Uncle Tom. The lyrics in one of the United States Marine Corps' anthems goes, "the Finnish girls were slim and fair", or something like that. The United States' military is the only military in the world, with blatantly racist lyrics in one of its anthems. What sort of black man would want to defend this nation--against ANY enemy?

I am only 17 and am unable to vote. I would like to thank everyone who voted for Barack Obama. Let's all hope he does not encounter too much resistance from his colleagues with his plans for a better America. Thank you

Is it fair to say that Thomas Jefferson's quote "...all men created equal..." has been achieved? Can we now abandon programs like, Affirmative Action, that are a blatant contradiction to America's founding ideals? Will the most qualified individuals now get an equal opportunity for employment, college acceptance, and scholarship funds? It is time for a change. As a very young man I adopted a saying for myself, "Somebody has always had it harder but made it farther." It's time to kick out the crutches, stop playing the race card, and just be the most qualified person applying.

Honey Bees are extremely important. Colony Collapse Disorder needs to be addressed now!
Albert Einstein Stated: "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years left of life."
Mr. Obama, Why are Honey Bees loosing their way back to the hive? What causes it? Viral infection? Parasitical? Electromagnetic radiation from high voltage towers or cell phones? Will life as we know it end, without our food crops?

I Live in Launceston Tasmania Australia, I am a Vietnam Veteran suffering with health problems associated with the war.Where I live is seemingly sheltered from most of the world's problems, except for the economic and climate problems. In saying that I felt that America and more importantly the World needed change and I believe that the change is now here with the election of Barack Obama as president of the United states of America, congratulations. The worlds current problems are big and wide I feel that the people of not only America but the rest of the world want change and will get behind the new president and support him. I hear Bin Laden has suggested to President Barack Obama that all American troops should be pulled out of all Muslim countries!!, I suggest that if Al-Qaeda wants a peaceful better life for all muslims he and all the cowardly leaders give themselves up not only for the murder of 3,000 innocent people in New York but for all the other innocent victims around the world including muslims and then the world can start to negotiate a peaceful order.
Al-Qaeda is a evil terrorist organisation that operates as cowards.

ODE TO BARACK OBAMA'S ELECTION
Disappear, dismal November skies,
This is the day you're born to be alive
Land of the Free, joyful where it has grieved,
Has burst its chains, now it can be believed,
Why has the picture changed, what is this panorama?
What sunrise gently stirs what lay in deepest slumber?
Step forward, one black man, Barack Hussein Obama
Once, I stood in Memphis, Tennessee,
Before motel where forty years ago
One black man beheld a Promised Land,
He saw no coloured skin, character was King,
There he was killed, here people dance and sing,
The dream fulfilled, we have got there at last,
Where each considered equal, what cannot be the sequel?
Reveille sounds new dawning's trumpet blast

They both paid such awesome respect and credit to each other, it was somewhat emotional. I'm watching Obama just finishing up his speech right now. He's such an awesome speaker. I think we'll be just fine with him. Maybe i was wrong... or maybe i just haven't opened myself to him. But i have a feeling things will change for the better :) That's really all i can hope for. Good luck Obama!!!! :)

Many times we find the truth in children innocent comments. Last night (ever of election day '08), my 5 year old son fell a sleep. He woke up 45 minutes into his sleep, as he walked to me and told me the following:" Mom, tomorrow Orack Obama (cute isn't??) will be the the new President of America. He will moved to the BIG White House with his family." What is interesting about all this, is that he has not been around much of political discussion. We do not discuss political views in our house openly, because we'll like for our two children to form a belief according to what they learn and experience. We don't want them to become victims of "I have to vote for this party because its a family tradition."
Well, may God help Senator Obama make history, but most of all to be able to take this country to a new path of building prosperity and respect. May my son be right on his prediction.

I believe that many in the Republican Party and Democratic Party are corrupt. The members that do a good job should be commended. In other words, give credit where credit is due.
The Democrats and some Republicans are still cleaning up the mess that the Republicans made for over 10 years. How do I know this? Easy to answer. I watch every Congressional session that is on C-Span. Many things, good or bad is not known by the public. The public would rather watch the news on the mainstream media. Many Americans would rather watch the celebrity news on CNN, MSNBC, CBS and faux news. The mainstream news broadcasts are censored. That is why Americans are so stupid. Television is the Master Mind Controller. This mind controlling device is the favourite device of the Bush Administration. That has made it sooo easy for the Bush Administration to push democracy out of the way and usher in fascism. In July 2007, Americans lost their freedom and their rights as well. It just may be too late to get our country back. When I saw this coming I tried to tell as many Americans as possible as to what was happening to their country. Many called me a nut-job or an anti-American. I was also told "nothing like that could ever happen to our country." Well it did.

The president does not really run the country,congress does. If the president wants something done and congress doesn't , guess what? it won't get done. The president can veto a bill from congress but congress can override that veto. it doesn't matter what either of the candidates say they will do, they can only do what congress allows. the reason the last 2 years of Bush's presidency have been so bad? guess who conrols congress-democraps-i mean democrats. with osama in office and democrats controlling congress-the US is screwed. i think everyone needs to review their high school civics and government classes. this election is about race and gender not about the needs of the country
Anonymously AGAISNT OBAMA

Everything that John J has said below is so true.
People worship Obama and are so full of nothing except his lies and hopes of a “better” America. He keeps saying, “change is coming.” Okay, well change is coming and there is no way it is going to be for the better. Does he really not say the Pledge of Allegiance? Because that right there is BS, anyone not wiling to pledge their allegiance to America should not be a politician let alone the President. And what the heck is up with him all for abortion being legalized? He claims that he’s a good, faithful Christian which is clearly not true. If he was Christian there should be no way in Heaven or H*** that he should want to legalize abortion. One of my family members told me that they couldn’t understand how the government could let anyone such as Obama run for President? This is all so crazy and there’s only five days left and it’s so frustrating knowing that Obama becoming President is inevitable because he’s got so many people brainwashed and only knowing the lies about how he’s going to make America better. McCain needs to win to shut Obama OUT! If obama does win though he’s going to mess up our country so badly and everyone’s perfect image of obama will cease to exsist, what a shame. (THOSE LAST COUPLE WORDS, PAST “BADLY” WAS ALL SARCASTIC) GO MCCAIN!!!! Even though I don’t agree with everything McCain says he better win just to shut Obama out as I’ve noted before.

Just what we need in Office....a president Obama, who BASED ON FACTS.....#1) Was virtually UNKNOWN to the American public up until a year - year and a half ago, and now claims to be this wonderful National savior, #2) has NO major accomplishments while in the Senate, #3) REFUSES to release his certified/original birth certificate to prove he is born in Hawaii, and not Kenya as his own grandmother / half-brother / and half-sister stated he was. The one on his website was a fake, NOT a copy from 1961...LOL . If he did, all the lawsuits would go away. ALSO refuses to release his education records which will also crucify him #4) Is associated with not one, but SEVERAL highly controversial figures/terrorists. The list keeps growing. #5) Is a Liar. #6) Is a racist. #7) Is a socialist. #8) WILL raise your taxes UNDER 250k, oops I mean 200K, OOPS I mean 150K...LOL...all these morons do not realize that people and small businesses making 200k and up EMPLOY/CREATE JOBS for the average person! If they are having a tough time, and this nit-wit raises their taxes....guess what? They will either close their business, move jobs over seas, OR FIRE THE AVERAGE GUY! He is screwing the average guy! Not to mention comes 2010 all of BUSH'S tax cuts to ALL will NOT be renewed by Obama...... So people making WAY UNDER 150K WILL BE TAXED!!!!!!! Wake up idiots. Obama is nothing more than a HIGHLY unqualified person for the Presidency, as BOTH Biden and Hillary stated...LOL..This country is full of brainless/close minded/EASILY brainwashed people....OH YEAH, the current financial conditions were NOT caused by Bush/Republicans....and I am no Bush lover as an Independent. The problem was caused by the Federal Reserve keeping interest rates too low for too long, the banks encouraging people to take out loans they COULD NOT AFFORD, people living WAY ABOVE their means, false information on loan applications, the DEMOCRATS pushing for LOW lending standards so low income families could all buy a home, even if they could not afford it!, and lastly, people just being plain dumb for not using their brains with respect to the OBVIOUSLY OVER VALUED housing market! OBAMA is a smooth talking bullshitter that is a FRAUD! He also is involved in a GAY MURDER scandal from his church, and not one, but SEVERAL have spoken up about him being gay/bisexual. WOW, great choice for president. Oh yeah, You have a 401k?? Stocks?? They will both drop MUCH lower if he gets in. He will raise capital gains, which will discourage investment in the markets. Obama has TOO MANY unanswered questions/issues.

I am writing a journal article for my college about a first-time voter who has been eligible to vote in the past but has not chosen to vote until this election. If that describes you and you wouldn't mind answering a few questions, I would greatly appreciate it!

I just recently heard about the poor girl in pittsburgh who was a victim of a HATE CRIME! the girl was at an atm withdrawing money and two young black men robbed her at knife point and made her take all her money out. after they stole her money, the noticed the McCain/Palin sticker on her car and proceeded to beat her and carved a "B" in her cheek an said that she will always remember barack obama. if these are the people supporting this man, then what does that say about the man himself?

Okay I Was For Obama Until The Universal Insurance For Everyone. Yeah that sounds good but really its not because we all are going to be taxed double for use who are paying taxes which are insurance coverage will be going down for those who chose to pay more. also for taxing anyone who makes over 250,000 a year that makes alot of small business owners go out of business because they dont pocket that much each year, they have other expenses that are being paid. so think about all the small writing before you vote for obama otherwise we're all going to be screwed

As a Independent voter I have studied both candadates and the comments they have made. Obama has made some comments that I found interesting and has sparked my interest. As a result I have found myself studying him a little closer. He has made the comment he is going to raise the taxes on anyone who makes over $250,000. Many of the individuals that fall into that tax brackett are businessmen or professionals. Obama says his tax plan will have no effect om the lower and middle class people. It has been my experience that when overhead goes up for businesses so does the prices. The consumer ends up footing the bill. Obama told "Joe" he wanted to spread around the wealth. Is this what he meant? If so, I say no vote for Obama - alias Robin Hood.

Imagine for a few moments that you are the human resources director of a major multi-billion dollar corporation. You are sitting in your large, luxurious office when you receive a phone call from the Chairman of the Board of Directors.
He tells you that the board is considering a candidate for a high-level executive position. He advises you to complete a thorough background investigation and have it to him within 10 days.
You immediately call the private detective agency you have used for years and give them the name and address of the prospective candidate, along with the deadline for a high level security clearance.
Your next move is to call your assistant to your office, giving him/her the candidate's personal information along with instructions to 'do your standard beginning background checks.'
Preliminary findings begin landing in your fax machine on the third day.
• Your candidate has used more than one name.
• His original birth certificate is unavailable, and
• he was mentored during his youth by a high level communist in Hawaii .
• You receive a 3 page 'dossier' on Frank Marshall Davis.
• You also learn the candidate was proctored into an elite Eastern private university by a middle eastern Muslim.
• You receive a short dossier on Khalid al-Mansour.
• You learn the candidate has terrorist organization 'Nations of Islam' employees on his current staff, and one of his advisors is a member of the global terrorist group 'Muslim Brotherhood.'
On day four, you receive in the mail from the security agency two books the candidate has written.
You read both books, highlighting the anti-American, anti-white racist passages.
You note the admissions of drug use.
You also receive in the packet a copy of the bitter anti-white thesis his wife wrote as a college undergraduate.
You receive a 4 page fax on the candidate's relative, Raila Odinga, who is connected with brutal Muslim politics in Africa, and background information on the candidate's estranged father who was part of Kenya's most corrupt regime.
The fifth day brings to your special delivery mail
• the complete background on Bill Ayers; his association with your candidate, his FBI criminal record, and
• a copy of the book 'Rules for Radicals' written by communist Saul Alinsky.
• You are advi sed your candidate used tactics from 'Rules for Radicals' at his previous employment.
• You are advised the candidate's wife used an excerpt from this book during a recent speech.
You receive by fax, a background on A.C.O.R.N. and an alert
• that this group is being watched by the U.S. Department of Justice and other state and local law enforcement agencies.
• You learn your candidate is endorsed by every Muslim terrorist organization on Earth; that he holds Muslim beliefs.
• His friend, Louis Farrakhan, is head of Nations of Islam.
• You learn that the candidate's pastor met with global terrorist Mohmmar Gaddafi in Libya , along with their mutual friend and anti-American Louis Farrakhan.
• You receive printed transcripts of his pastor's anti-White, anti-American 'sermons' and are advised your candidate has been close personal friends with this 'pastor' for two decades.
• Your candidate has referred to this radical pastor as his 'personal spiritual advisor,' and in fact, the title of one of your candidates memoirs was inspired by a line from this pastor's 'sermons.'
In your fax machine on the sixth morning is
• a file on one Tony Rezko; his friendship, associations and business transactions with your candidate, as well as high level 'people' of middle eastern origin, and his federal conviction.
You will spend most of day seven compiling a file on the candidate, The Obama File , complete with footnotes and cross references.
Additional information is arriving regarding the candidate's friends and acquaintances during college, and you learn that
• he did not run with a mainstream crowd, but chose radicals and communist agitators for his social group.
The morning of the eighth day has arrived and you and your assistant have placed a small mountain of background information into manageable 'piles' including
• photographs of the candidate's family in Africa ,
• he and George Soros (including a brief file on the Soros 'Open Society Institute'),
• photos of the c andidate and Louis Farrakhan and anti-Israel Arafat advisor Edward Said.
You begin to outline and write your 'Summary Evaluation' to the Chairman of the Board of Directors:
• This candidate has a tissue thin work experience resume.
• He has not managed large groups of personnel, departm

I watched the debate and can point out the exact moment that I knew Barack Obama was lying. "If you make less than $250,000, your taxes will be lower; you will not pay more in taxes". That is an out and out lie!
Currently, once you make $102,000, the social security taxes (6.2%) are no longer taken out of your pay. In Barack Obama's tax plan, that will cease and there will be no wage cap on social security taxes. So someone who makes $249,000 will pay $9,114 a year more in social security taxes, or a total of $36,456 over a 4 year term should he win.
While many people may say, "This won't affect me", think about the part that DOES affect you. It is a lie that was extremely easy to verify. How many more has he told us that aren't as easily spotted nor proven before the election???
PS - I am a registered Democrat who will be voting Republican this year.
