Obama wants to take hands off approach in waging war? Did he not say he would go into Pakistan. He would not take military options off the table with
Iran. Have you read into his Darfur plan.
Obama promises tax relief. Last time I checked it was a plan not a promise. Just by letting the Bush tax cut die is a tax increase itself. I'm sure
some people will see relief with his tax plan, but I doubt it will play out like he says. Too many factors involved.
Do you realize that social security, Medicare are in big financial trouble? And you expect the government to manage universal healthcare. They can't
even control the National debt.
Helping the poor is one thing. However, there is a percentage of able to work people who bleed off the system that are either too lazy, too doped up,
or believe that it is the government responsibility to take care of them. I also prefer we help the poor in America before helping others.
Jesus is not here and you can't say what he would do. Only he knows what he would do. I am sure Jesus helped many people but I am also pretty sure
there were many he didn't.
I am sure some people won't vote for Obama because he is black. Just like some people are only voting for Obama cause he is black. And some people
won't vote for McCain cause he is white. But that doesn't mean racism is the reason people don't want Obama. Majority of people don't give a damn
about the color. Cause ultimately the only color that matter is green. Green keeps people sheltered and fed.
People have legit reasons for not voting for Obama. You may not like them, may not understand them, but don't equate their reasons to racism. As far
as racism in the US. It does exist, but I feel we have come a lot further than we give ourselves credit for.
