You don't know me. I don't count on the government to ensure my financial security. I just want to keep what I earn.

Seriously, that is a "cult-like" reaction. Scary!

And yet people continue to vote for more governmental involvement in their life.. You do understand that government caused these individuals problems, not the solution right?

Oh give me a break. Historical perspective would be a good thing.

I'm really torn between whether I want to smack people for bringing Hitler comparison's into this or to throw a book at them in hopes they'll educate themselves.

As for the commercial, it was well done. I just finished watching it (had to record because real life demanded attention elsewhere) and...it was much better than I expected. It was also depressing as hell but I see why they went that route too. I suspect he'll get a bounce from that.

I guess you have a weak constitution because I ate while watching and had no problems. You should see a doctor about your issues. They have meds for that will help.

I think Senator Obama laid out his views effectively...people do not want want government to control their personal lives, and government won't be doing that (unlike under Bush...government HAS been controlling our lives, from foreign affairs, a war no one wants, a collapsing economy, people without affordable healthcare...all of these problems have been dumped on us.)

Excatly...Telling everyone he can make them rich reminds me of one of those pyramid scheme salesmen from pre-paid legal or quickstar.."My friends I'll make you rich" but they never explain how as McCain hasn't explained anything in detailed. The only details he's spread are lies about Obama.

As for the commercial, it was perfect..My mom called me in tears..
