In an official and independent FYI voters intelligence survey, recently held, of a large number of diverse-minded individuals who would be actually voting for Obama, the results revealed, with a percentage difference of +/-3%, that those voters surveyed had a combined total I.Q. of 47.

After the results were made public, it was noted by the survey officials that the congratulatory and self-aggrandising 'back-patting' and 'knuckle-slamming' by those surveyed, was fully expected.

Barack Hussein Obama could not be reached for comments.

I will not vote for Obama because I don't trust the media....

I will not vote for Obama because he came out of nowhere and just about every President in the past had some sort of history and scrutiny applied to their said histories.

I will not vote for Obama because I am scared that someone will take a shot at him and he will be hundreds of time more powerful as a martyr. I am worried that Obama will be "sacrificed" as soon as his popularity falls therefore making any opposition to socialism impossible.

I will not vote for Obama because he is a Democrat. To be fair, I would not vote for McCain either if the Republicans had a super-majority within reach. I don't believe in a one-party system and conflict in politics is usually beneficial to those being governed.

I will not vote for Obama because he is playing a shell game with his taxes. He might support a tax cut for 95% of us (if that can be believed) but the 5% who are usually paying wages also will pass those taxes along to the 95% of us via lower wages or job cuts.

I will not vote for Obama because his proposed Civilian National Security Force armed with the Patriot Act screams of despotism.

I would NOT vote for Obama because:

6. He is a socialist and is backed by the socialist New Party and Working Families


Yet he is not backed by America's official Socialist Party. Interesting juxtaposition there.

That would probably be because they have their own nominees...
Socialist Party nominees

Plus the New Party is, in fact, socialist:
Obama backed by socialist New Party

I will not vote for Obama because I believe his policies are more likely to finish the job of CRASHING the American economy rather than giving it what it needs to grow and prosper.

You simply cannot create economic growth by taxing the hell out of buisnesses, both large and small, who need to maintain their revenue in order to continue to grow and create more jobs. Raising taxes on employers will NOT create more jobs, neither will it help to maintain any type of continuity of jobs that already exist. It will do just the opposite. It will create more economic downturns rather than growth. And that is the exact opposite of what we need right now.

Also, I will not vote for a canidate whose entire platform reeks of the politics of envy, hidden racist tendencies, and class warfare. Ten years ago I might have fallen for it. But now that I'm older and more experienced, there's not a chance in hell.

In fact, the only reason I'm even voting this year is because I'm voting AGAINST Obama.

I know they have their own nominees.

Brian Moore said himself he wished Obama was a Socialist.

The Socialist Party itself says Obama is not a socialist.

That was my point.

In fact, all you need to do is compare what Brian Moore wants to what Obama wants. If you put forth that effort the answer will be self-evident as to who is and is not a Socialist.

And all I am saying is that if Obama wins (which I hope he doesn't), we will see see who's opinions were right. Thats all they are...opinions. One can HOPE he isn't for socialism but with everything flying all over the internet its hard to see who is right and who is wrong.

Well it's not opinion in the sense that we can literally compare his plans to the Socialist Parties plans.

Also, I am a socialist (social anarchist) and I am not voting for Obama. If I thought Obama was a socialist then I would probably be voting for him.

Obama is a democrat. Big government, big corporation. Same as the modern republican party.

I am not defending Obama, I am merely addressing your accusation that Obama is a socialist.

Maybe Obama is a secret socialist.

As I head out the door right now to vote, one last jab...

Quote of the Day
"You have to pinch yourself. A Marxist radical, who all
his life has been mentored by, sat at the feet of,
worshipped with, befriended, endorsed the philosophy of,
funded and been in turn funded, politically promoted and
supported by a nexus comprising black power, anti-white
racists, Jew-haters, revolutionary Marxists, unrepentant
former terrorists and Chicago mobsters, is on the verge of
becoming President of the United States. And apparently
it's considered impolite to say so."
