I am a lifelong Democrat, never voted for any Republican candidate since I was of legal age and registered to vote. This election is bigger than political affiliation, gender or race; this is about survival of America, if we would still have a country that believes in Democracy and freedom of speech, if we still have a country that believes an ordinary citizen can question their leaders without their privacy being invaded or they be investigated because they dared to ask questions as law abiding citizen should do who love his country.

My loyalty this election season was put into question, I was called all kinds of names; traitor, stupid, ignorant, moron and other invectives I care not to mention. Loyalty to my party ends where loyalty to my country begins. I am American first, my country will stand with beside come hell and high water; my political affiliation will abandon me like a husband who had found another woman much better than me.

Yes, like other lifelong Democrats, I've joined them, standing side by side, hand in hand, campaigning for Senator John McCain. This is not about political affiliation anymore, this is bigger than Hillary or the Democratic Party; my vote is for UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I love this country, my father sacrificed his life for this country; I will not allow his memory to be turned into dust. America is worth fighting for, I have one life to live and if that life is taken away from me, I want to give it to my country; that's what my father said years ago.

If you put out more often, maybe the Democrats wouldn't have left you for someone better.

Your thread title is misleading, it suggests you are voting for Obama.

Barack and Michelle Obama are the most ANTI-AMERICAN politicians that I know in the history of politics. They have a history of speeches and behavior and ties that scream anti-american.

This is a scary place we're in right now, you are right that this election is more than an election... this is about the survival of the framework of this country. Great and moving post.

Good for you! That is what this country is about, freedom to choose who you want.

I'm a lifelong republican who has never voted democrat and I will be voting for Obama. I choose the guy who actually cares about vets and votes to help them.

If you actually listened to Obama and not a sound bite from Fox you would realize what you are saying is totally inaccurate. Then again, if you think McSame and Pitbull are actually Pro-America, you wouldnt know the truth if it smacked you upside the head.
