Does anybody honestly think one man can change most of the problems? It's going to take alot more than a Obama to do it. Ideas are great but you have to have backing. The almighty dollar controls everything now even if it isn't worth anything right now. Greed has taken over.
I don't think any of them are worth voting for.

Change has to start somewhere. One man may not be able to change everything, but there has to be a point where change does start. If everyone felt that an idea or change could not be accomplished then just imagine where we would be at this time.

I actually think change will occur no matter which candidate is elected. I don't buy into the Dem party line that McCain is running for a 3rd Bush term. Change for change sake is not necessarily a good thing.

I agree he wants to tax Exxon Mobil and hurt by portfolio.

I agree with you here. I think a lot of people are scared of change. Its unknown territory to a lot of us. I only know one thing and that is we have to change what we have in there now. You've got an oil man running this Country. You have an old man that will continue business as usual and you have the Democrats that are at least giving us hope. I chose the possibility of hope and change instead of the same old thing.

I have been a strong supporter of Senator Hillary Clinton but the handwriting is on the wall. She won't give up until the last delegate is counted at the convention. I think that is a virtue given all of the nastiness the Obama people have used against this gallant and corageous woman and her family. The vicious, unfair and unwarranted attacks of Moveon.com and the Obama supporters are right out of the dirty politics handbook.

I cannot in good faith vote for Obama who I feel is a socialist with ties to Communists. All of his associates in and around the Chicago area are far left fringe socialists. Some of them have in the past, vowed to destroy the US government by violence. Obama's friend professor Khalidi at Columbia University supports "one state" in Palestine and the elimination of Israel by violent means.

When Obama and his friend terrorist bomber William Ayers were on the board of the philanthropic Woods Foundation they proposed and secured funds for the Arab American Action Network. The Arab American Action Network was founded by professor Rashid Khalidi and his wife Mona. It was later discovered that the Arab American Action Network was a front organization which sent money to Palestine to buy weapons.

OBAMA HAS NEVER EXPLAINED HIS INVOLVEMENT IN THIS SHAMEFUL DECEIT

Many Americans will feel disenfranchized this fall. Obama is a dangerous man who cannot be trusted. McCain is a part of the establishment but at least he is stable and we know what we are getting with him.

He fought against Communism as a member of the US military and will continue to fight against the treat that Obama and his fellow socialists pose to America.
