    Great news about Obama leading in the polls. Maybe McCain is pooped from all the excitement of campaigning and wants to catch up on some sleep.

    Dear Mr.Obama,

    Please win this election and help the rest of the world restore some faith in your fine country

    Yours sincerely,

    Rondette

    P.S. Look out for aliens, meteorites and the like, according to films if you have a black president running the country we are more likely to encounter these types of things. Kthxbye!!

    You keep saying this, but when asked why you don't give a coherent answer. I know that Obama policies are different than yours, but what policies are those? Have you did legit research, I mean from reliable sources..not just from the folks who sent you the info that Obama's the anti-christ. What's disappointing about Obama in your eyes? When you say things about Obama, they're either untruths or even made up statements.

    I am all out of powdered sugar, so this is going to be a little hard for some to swallow.

    That statement makes no sense. You are not supporting McCain, so you refuse to support the opponent? This is what an election is about. You vote for the best qualified candidate. If the one you wish were qualified turns out to be a flake, you just refuse to vote at all?

    That is bitter and reminiscent of a child stomping her feet and refusing to move if her demands are not met. What a great image for the republican supporters. *Pouts* "If McCain is terrible, I just won't bother voting for the other guy! I'm mad!"

    Voting rights is another area which should require mandatory passing of a rigorous qualifications test. If it is failed, send the test taker packing.

    And from what I have seen- voting for McCain is voting for the same old that we have seen the past 8 years. He has surrounded himself by the same people who surrounded Bush.

    I feel like voting should be a requirement to be a citizen. In my family we never miss an election.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    ^^ And that people have died and suffered for democracy and getting the vote. Suffragettes anyone?

    Although I may get apathetic and pissed off with parties - I do vote whether it can be seen as a protest vote which I did the last election here- I still voted.

    Exactly. Women and especially the black community should be ashamed if they don't take their right to vote seriously. People died and were prosecuted for the next generation to have that basic right.

    I honestly think it should be a law to vote in an election. Perhaps that may have a bad taste in some people's mouth's because it's a bit strict, but...the hell with them, lol.

    If you don't like McCain or Obama, write in Nader!

    Although it was deeply painful, I still voted for Kerry. I didn't want to vote for Kerry, but I didn't want to simply not vote either. Think of all the women who worked to ensure you got the right to vote. If you can't vote for McCain or Obama then try Bob Barr or write in Ron Paul or somebody.

    YouTube - Nearly unanimous vote for Obama = "split" on FOX

    Check this out- Fox news doing their spin
    They went into a diner to do a split poll to see who vote for who. But check out the couple- the guy raises his hand then his wife smacks him when she sees that he will be voting for McCain.
    And the reporter says its its split but its unanimous with just one person for McCain lol

    Barack Obama and Joe Biden: The Change We Need | Policy Issues
    This isn't the best place for a conservative to express an opinion..As I have learned from the short time being here..
    His morals are not the same as mine but I can look past that to a certain degree but it is compromising some of my beliefs..
    I don't hate him nor anyone, and we all know Obama is very likable and has the charisma etc..He is too socialist for my taste..143 days in the senate may not be enough..He made over 500 votes in which he voted "present" on 228 of the issues..why?
    His connections with William Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn make me skeptical.
    as well as Tony Rezco, Jim Johnson.
    He thinks it is ok to meet with hostile dictators with no preconditions.
    I am not crazy about Universal health care.
    You know there are more debates..so I will watch and I want to have an open mind..Mccain doesn't have everything I'm looking for but If Ihad to vote right now (I'm back and forth with it, I don't want to waste a vote that Woman worked so hard to be able to get) it would be Mccain..But once Nov comes I hope to have more clarity..I really feel like not voting at times..
    My grace is sufficient for you, for my my strength is made perfect in weakness...I love you dad!

    I am not a bitter person at all. I'm a very happy and content person..I have no demands period..

    ^^ I'm sorry you feel that way cupcake and I do feel sorry for the other conservatives here as well because they are overwhelmed by opinion. But on the other hand you have a candidate who in my mind and to others seem almost more disastrous than the lame duck president that you have right now.

    And the thing about the socialist and Obama being too liberal- I live in the UK and the conservatives are more centre right than most of your conservatives that are currently in congress- I think part of the problem is that people are throwing these labels and not exactly understanding what it really means. The real conservatives from the republican party just like the dems have been hijacked by members who are in it for themselves and I agree that system needs to have kick up the backside especially after seeing what happened this week.
    But McCain couldnt be bothered to vote since April and it seems to me he is desperate to become president and is ambition is overpowering his judgement for what is good for the country.
    I think Obama is the lesser of two evils and I hope that he can try to live his message- I know it will be impossible but I do think he truly cares about ordinary people. In the 8 years of Bush in power the trickle down theory didnt do jack shit and in fact made the gap between the poor and rich even bigger.
