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.
