Hi, Tthere are democrats who are not pro abortion.

And there are repblicans who are pro choice as it is termed

Also, supporting a woman’s right to make the decision does not mean that someone is pro abortion.

John McCain may have also won in Sodom and Gomorrah

Down near the bottom of what is in snopes, it says, "Nothing in the Bible-in Revelation or anywhere-describes the Anti-Christ as being 'a man, in his 40s, of Muslim descent.' In fact, since the Book of Rvelation was completed by the end of the second century, but the religion of Islam wasn't founded until about 400 years later, the notion that Revelation would have mentioned a 'Muslim' at all is rather far-fetched. (And even if it did, it couldn't be construed as a reference to Barak Obama, since Senator Obama isn't a Muslim.)"

I must confess that I have not been as politically knowledgable as I should have been in the past and that this election is one that has encouraged me to become more involved. I am concerned about the direction this country has taken over the past 8 years under the leadership of the current president, for whom I did not vote, and I believe that Obama is the better candidate. His platform does indicate that he is interested in bringing about positive changes for the country and I also believe that his actions have indicated that he is willing to reach across party lines, consider more center positions on some issues, say for example, his choice of his economic advisors. I don't know for sure that he would appoint a very liberal court because from what I understand he has considered more individuals w/more moderate positions, but then again he may. I think that he puts a lot of thought into the actions and positions that he takes and that he takes into consideration , opposing or alternate views before coming to decisions. There have been reports that he is the most liberal Democrat in the Senate based on his voting record, but from what I understand the report is not totally accurate, failing to take into account his record in previous years and his absence in voting on some of the issues due to being on the campaign trail. Like I said, Oakback, I am not the most politically astute person and these are just my opinions but I would like to say that I can't see myself supporting some of the views, actions, tactics, and judgments of the opposing candidate, like the his vice presidential choice and his support of many of the policies of the current president. This is of great concern to me. Hope this helps to answer some of your questions. Thanks again and God bless.
Thanks for your thoughtful response. This is the most fascinating election of my lifetime. Regardless who wins, I believe our "One Nation Under God" will survive.
Let's pray for whoever wins.

God bless.
My primary point is that neither party's political platform offers lasting hope for America. Only a life dedicated in CHRIST will be blessed now and in eternity.

If a democrat is in the White House, the chance of abortion ending is slim to none. If a republican wins, the chances are somewhat better, but remain questionable. And if some day an Eve winds up in the White House, GOD please help us.

So as a Christian, I can't find any reason to waste my time on election day. I'm sure the car will need washing, or there will be some more important task to do than to vote for which form of disaster is best for America.

But for those who do go and vote, pray and make the right choice, if there is a right choice.

My messiah won't be anyone running for the president of this country. Hailing Obama as a messiah of this country is just absurd.

Me being half Jewish, when I heard that the anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan and the Nation Of Islam is fully endorsing Barack Obama, well that just sealed the deal for me when it comes to not voting for the guy. Barack seems to attract radical fringe supporters like white on rice.
