Before I put my 2 cents in- I need to make a couple items known. First off, I think both candidates are crooks, plain and simple. I am also not a bible thumping jackass with delusions of self grandeur, or of end of the world schemes.
But in the back of my mind- a little voice keeps hinting at 'The Beast'. And when that tiny little voice wont shut up, and it's a nagging thought right at the absolute back of my brain... I tend to listen. because the sucker's usually right.
If I am wrong, someone just mail me some nice happy pills. I'll go quietly to a nap. But... if I am right.............
So, if you're sitting there knowing you cant stand him, give the thought a good examination. There's a good valid reason why you don't like him, it's just buried.

Well i would like to see him do something. I really haven't seen a reason to give him the benefit of the doubt. Hillary Clinton i disliked but with her i would have given her a shot. I have enough faith in her, she has a successful background.
but with Obama, i am worried he is leading a lot of people down the wrong path. a lot of people that do not even know it. he got the children. They don't know what is going on. Only a very small portion of the younger voters have a clue what they are voting for and Obama extorted that. They don't even know we are having a problem right now, or what the problem is. they are clueless! As long as they get their allowance, and their check from daddy in the mail to pay their rent they don't have any worries in the world so they are jsut looking something fun to fallow. A thrill. They want to feel like they are smart and political. and its an easy task to say, i want change and We can do it! thats all you have to know to fallow Obama! Change and YOU CAN DO IT!
i know this for a fact because i am young. I am 21. and i was on the Obama bandwagon until i took a step back and decided to really understand who i was voting for and why. I gave him his initial chance and i backed off. I will still support the guy if he comes out and starts doing some positive things, but i will still have my reasons to keep my eyes open when i sleep with this guy.

Did it ever dawn on you [and your type] that people voted for the President because they actually read and agreed with his policies? Stop whining like a baby and do something for the world, or your country at-least.

it's because obama being president stands for what a lot of this site stands for. it's about revolution and the fact that a simple man can make it that far.
why does that count for more than when previous presidents were elected after being farmers? you're right it doesn't it's stupid. but the point is people recognize an upheavel when they see one, and this "appears" to be one.
i would never vote for either of those AHs in a million years, no one with a brain would. i just saw a lady on tv saying " i voted for mc cain but i didn't vote because of race, i made a philosophical decision based on the TWO candidates."
and she was the "wise" person on the news interview. it's just sick, that lady was twice as old as i am and doesn't have a friggin clue.
