I don't share your thoughts on the economy and to say we'll be on soup lines soon is rediculous. Worry more about Russia, China, Iran, North Korea...

Hey! Now that's a logical answer! There is something to be said for the situation in the 90's with president Clinton and a Republican Congress. However, the last 7-8 years have been so skewed to the right, I think four years of the opposite will be OK. Actually, the next four years are likely to be rough for the economy no matter who is in charge, so whoever is in charge will get blamed and probably lose ground in 2012.

It is time for real wages to start ticking up again. I think that is unlikely to happen under a McCain administration. His capacity for compromise seems to have gone out the window, and his hunger for war scares the crap out of me.

I voted for Gore and Kerry. I am a strong Hillary supporter but will vote for McCain. Obama is a far-left extremist that I believe would ruin this country far more than Bush!

I don't believe you.

The only way for someone to support Gore, Kerry, Clinton - and then McCain over Obama, is to suspend all logic and common sense. This far-left extremist notion is not supported by any facts, only suspicion and internet-generated rumor and lies. If you are switching from Hillary to Obama, you do not care about any issues, or you do not care to vote for a black guy. It's that simple.

You are either lying, or...

you do realize that obama is a war mongering candidate as well don't you? did he not support the global poverty act? or in layman's terms, the global give money to military dictatorships around the world so they can oppress their own people and insight hatred towards america that will be unleashed at a later date. the CIA calls it blow back. we supported and gave money to osama as well. how did that investment work out for us? the second you give dime one to a foreign country, you can be considered a war mongering person. it doesn't have to be on TV 24-7. it's the unseen wars that scare the crap out of me.

It does not matter whether you share my thoughts or not, did you know here are small towns of tents from homeless people that were gainfully employed a year ago, thousands are living in there cars. Food stamp programs need an address if Im not mistaken. States are out of money, school funding is a joke. What part of the economy do you find fundamentally sound? There is no category doing well, even the rich are less rich. There were very rich people even during the great depression, but the middle and poor class are getting annihilated. Why do I need to care about Russia, Iran, North Korea, when I need to worry about the USA. They don't have to do anything, we have defeated ourselves.

Yes I voted for Kerry but going with Mccain

I disdain Pelosi and Reid and thus want some balance of power. I do not want Pelosi nor Reids vile claws touching anything .

Find Obama very smart but one party rule I find very bad .

I am voting for Mccain also but due to balance of power.

However I find Obama smart type of person that could run a business and do well but now add Pelosi and Reid as managers and the business would have been better off torched .

Bush is no better so don't misconstrue what I mean but the balance of power is essential with Pelosi and Reid crawling around the inventory.

Hope that means that McCain is going to win!
