Obama care. What is it exactly?? I'm not so sure why everyone hates it so much. Is it because you feel it's a socialist idea where the government handles the health care?

Up here in Canada medical care is free unless you want to go to a private doctor. You pay your taxes just as normal and voila, you have a health card. Break your finger, catch a cold, get something in your eye, head on in to a walk-in-clinic, present your card and presto, your treated. No bills, no invoices, do debt. I don't need to have insurance in my country. My country takes care of me.

Isn't that what Obama care is? Or am I way off the mark?

Oh, and I just want to add that free medical care was brought in by the NDP which is considered more socialist than other party in Canada. Best move that has ever been done.

I'm not a fan of Romney but he just said the MOST important thing so far.

"Government does NOT create jobs"

Way to go Mitt, you just scored huge with me.

You can not legislate behavior.

Automatic weapons are fully legal as class 3 firearms!

Geez neither one has got a clue.


You have to have a license to own a automatic weapon. But to the general public it is illegal to own one.


No you dont you pay a 200 tax stamp, and pass a BATF background check.

Bottom line:

Obama crushed Romney tonight.

I am disappointed there was no question on gay marriage.

That would have put a bigger dent in Romney's wagon.

Obama Lie:

The President never mentioned terrorism as cause of attacks on September 12th, the day after the Benghazi attacks.

Benghazi Time-Line

I find it kind of funny that no Romney supporters are talking about the Libya question/answer.

I'll take that as a HUGE score for Obama.

AR-15s were designed for soldiers?






The three types of weapons used by the man accused of killing 12 people in a Colorado movie theater — a semiautomatic variation of the military’s M-16 rifle, a pump-action 12-gauge shotgun and at least one .40-caliber semiautomatic pistol — are among the most popular guns available in the multibillion-dollar American firearms market.



Shows your understanding of an AR-15 I love when people with no gun knowledge try to come in on that.....

The AR-15 is your standard hunting round with your standard rate of fire, on a modified platform........what does that mean?

It means its no different then a 223 except cosmetically........


You can reconfigure the AR-15 to fire a variety of ammo types, thus altering it's power greatly. And, what a lot of people do not understand, is that a semi-automatic rifle is way more effective than a fully automatic rifle. Spray and pray doesn't really get you anywhere. An AR-15 configured to fire NATO rounds properly is a highly effective weapon equal to any M16 carried by our soldiers around the world.


A 223 or a 308 in my hands is just as effective as any AR -15 is...........being prior military and a crack shot........

Point is anyone who is proficient with a weapon can take a standard hunting rifle and and modify it to be just as effective as an m16

Banning a certain time of rifle because it looks like a military rifle, doesnt solve the problem

And yet all debate he is claiming he knows how to create jobs.

But if Government doesn't create jobs, how is he going to create jobs as President, which is part of the Government.

Final rebuttal to both of them on outsourcing:

Nothing is more American than wearing a pair of Levi jeans. Levi's have not been made in the US since 2003. Until that is corrected, then we have a problem with outsourced jobs.

Shame on him. He can't compare his nonexistant military duty to Obama's years of sacrifice and military service. It just comes across......empty.

And he ends it with calling Romney out on the 47%, nice exclamation point on the entire night.

I just listened to the thing for maybe 10 minutes, if that long, and already I heard Romney saying he was going to do things counter to what he was saying months ago. It is obvious he is changing his views to fit what the people want, and this flip-flopping is not an endearing quality in a president. Choose wisely America. Romney screwed Paul out of the Republican nomination, and he will not hesitate to screw you as well.

My son just said Obama spent the last four years campaigning so all bets are off on what he will do with the next four.

Obama crushed himself compared to the last debate. Romney won again, 51% vs. 49%.

Some people make up their minds before they watch the debates. Your avatar reminds me that if Ron Paul had been there as the Republican candidate, I would have done this very same thing, and done it gladly.
