Can someone please explain the thinking of such supporters of this McCain, because logically, it just doesn't make sense.
Speaking logic to a liberal is like speaking German to a Dachshund.

If the Democrats have had majority of the House and Senate for the past two years, please tell me what has changed except for the worse? All they do is fight for each other. Educate yourself on both candidates instead of blinding accepting what the media is telling you and make up your own mind. In my opinion we should get rid of all of them because they have gotten so corrupt and full of themselves. We just have to chose the lesser of the two evils.

Oh please. If that were the case then a vote for Obama should also be a vote for any other democrat and Hilliary would have been the more logical choice, being so much more experienced. But not all reps are the same any more than are all dems. This is a tired ol' dishrag of an assumption.

Agree with you. All Americans, regardless of political affiliations should bring "term-limit" propositions the the State ballot boxes. We just have to get rid of both, and bring in new representatives for two terms maximum.

You need to seriously investigate the current financial crisis. There is absolutely no way anyone can pin the blame on Republicans for this fiasco.
I am voting for a Republican presidential candidate for the very first time in my 50+ years. McCain isn't perfect and I am not a huge fan of Sarah Palin, but their imperfections pale in comparison to those of Obama. His voting record is more liberal than Teddy Kennedy, in fact the most liberal in the senate. I do not go along with his proposals for healthcare or the redistribution of wealth. Simply put, I would rather not become a Socialist.

It doesn't matter who you vote for, the US will steadily decline both economically and in world status. You'll have plenty of time to reflect upon that in the future.

I completely agree with you! We are heading to Socialism if Obama wins. Everyone please look at his voting record. He's voted "no vote" 236 times in three years. Also anyone thinking national healthcare is a good idea needs to live in a country that has it. My family lived in England for three years with national healthcare and it was horrible. The level of education for their doctors was horrible and at times it took up to three months just to get an appointment. National healthcare is crap. There has to be other alternatives.

ps. love your name!

It didn't make sense when Bush elected so it's beyond me why they want the same old same old.

"vowed to continue this country on it's current course...downhill." I must have stepped out of the room when he "vowed" to do that. Can you back up the claim of yours or is this just another fine example of the Obama people saying anything, no matter how ridiculous, to avoid talking about how they are going to pay for any of this without sharp tax increases and how we get to energy Independence with out developing nuclear, coal and American oil.

Someone looked past the pie in the sky promises and pipe dreams of Obama. You don't have to be excited to be right.
