Young people are smart too, even though young people would just vote for obama because it's Hip no apparent reason and it's like monkey see monkey do with the young age group so it would affect allot of the younger audiences.

You mean some know nothing can write what they want on wiki? Dang I always thought that was the word, I'm bummed to find out that it's not completely fact...

I am assuming that you are young because you sound like the real IDIOT. I also assume that you are supporters of McCain and Palin. I would also guess that you make less that $200k because if you did, I could assume you are relatively successful and educated, which you obviously are not. What you need to know is that you are going to benefit from Obama more than anyone else. If you took time to listen to him, you would understand that you don't fit into the group that is going to be taxed (5%)
You are the puppets that repeart their [FONT=Verdana]nonsensical [/FONT] jibberish to appear informed. You now see that it isn't the young, but everyone except you (the true minorty) who were affraid of possibly realizing you greatest fear--HELLOOOOOO--wake up, it was always just a matter of time. And guess what, in 4 years there will be a whole lot more of those OLDER folks died off--look out.

I heard a psychiatrist on our local radio ( no, they are not radically right wing) talking about how his speech and gestures are akin to what shrinks use to hynotize patients. It does make you think... I have also read he uses the mode of a fire-and-brimstone preacher to mesmerize... that I do see. Stop and think about those in the past who did the same in other countries and where it led....

The kiddies will fall out of lockstep if they discover he doesn't deliver everything he promised.

I do agree with this posting. I love the young,but they are still learning about taxes, jobs and the whole trickle down effect. This will be a very hard lesson to learn--------real life.

Young people and white, upper class Americans (mainly white-collar)! Damn doctors, lawyers and other financially successful people!
