I was planning on doing something similar to this in the next couple of days that would essentially be a 'Why I'm not voting for Obama' thread. The only problem is that it would largely be based on the proposals put forth on his website and its going to take forever, assuming it even gets done. Plus, finding past articles, in particular, is a pain because there's just so much media coverage on Obama that its hard to find specifically what you're looking for if its more than a few days old. Honestly, I'm not sure I even want to screw with it, but then again, it might help us all understand each sides' legitimate concerns.
That said...I won't leave you empty handed. I'll contribute the following video, widely circulated already, but where Obama lists his (IMO
dangerous) plans to reduce investment in missile defense and future combat systems, as well as to sharply reduce our nuclear deterrent.
I may (or may not) dig up a few more articles from time to time. Mainly just too lazy, but this thread IS a good idea, IMO.
EDIT: Here is a little more detailing his stances on abortion and on gun control. I oppose his position on both.

More on his Gun Control Stance from the Gun Owners of America.
That latter link does have some bias, but it also cites its work, so readers, you can do your own homework. I believe it to be accurate.
Next up, a quick primer on the Obama-Rezko connection. If memory serves, there's more out there than just what is discussed in this article. On a
side note, I don't think the Chicago media likes him much. Could be wrong about that.
