These pretend posts by those who are suddenly coming to such a hard decision after days of tumultuous going back and forth are hilarious. Nobody is buying this and if you are, I have some swamp land to sell you...lol.

To an extent I agree with you, I'm just barely in the "voted FOR" column. Perhaps it is having watching the current inarticulate fool destroy this country over the last 8 years and the desperation to get off the course he has set, and restore the rights this bastard has taken from every American.

And McCain/Palin are soooooooo far in the "AGAINST" side, an unimaginable disaster for our future as a free nation, Obama remains in the "FOR" column.

If that's what you want to believe then that's ok. There are unquestionable ties with the Saudi's and terrorism. Ultimately any statement like this is exactly what the opposite side has to say about Obama's ties.

At some point you have to call a spade a spade.

Congratulations on doing research and taking the time you needed to make your decision.

IMO, McCain's big mistake this week is he still speaking to his base, and not addressing the undecided voters. Fear campaigns work best with your base supporters, but undecided voters want to hear why they should vote FOR a candidate, not smears about the other guy.

And that about hits the nail on the head. I had a long talk yesterday with a McCain supporter that I have a lot of respect for. He understands the issues very well and throws the crap to the side. Throughout the conversation he gave me two reasons to vote for McCain.

1. He's not Obama.
2. McCain doesn't have those association issues.

On my way home I realized that very little is out there telling me what McCain is going to DO right now so I went looking and came up short. There are some things however the negativity and bickering far outdistances these points.

Then I watched the commercial and thought. OK there has to be a few McCain supporters that watched that and realize that telling people what their candidate CAN do is about as good a tactic to fight that as any.

So I went looking. What did I find? More bickering and name calling and .... and....

Well that made up my mind.

There's a good possibility of that however for those of us that feel a new direction is what's needed Obama is the best shot there is at that.

I'm voting for the guy. He's not my saviour at all. If he doesn't deliver I'll be one of the first to call him on the mat over it.

Read that again.... I'm just voting for the guy.

I realize that it will take a lot more than one man in office to accomplish what's needed. It will take me, you, and a lot of others. Are you up to the task to do your part?
