I'm voting for a man that shares my ideals more than his opponent. Case closed. It's not becuase he's not Bush because then I'd vote for any one. I know that the mess in Iraq is not going away soon no matter who is president. Just like you all should wake up and realize with a nearly $500 trillion dollar deficit ****YOUR TAXES MAY GO UP**** regardless of WHO wins.

My taxes WILL go up with Barack, and they might go up with McCain.

VALUES and DIVERSITY are 2 different things. I'll supply the definitions if you like.

I don't care if someone is DIFFERENT than me, but there are core values that I need to know people who are in my inner circle share. Not that I am saying they shouldn't exist if they have different values, it's just that they may not be part of my core group.

If someone is a drug user, for example, I probably don't want them around my family. No, I've never even tried drugs.

If someone is a racist, I don't want them in my core group. Now, everyone has some prejudice in them, but a raving racist...not having dinner with them on a Saturday night.

Sorry if that offends.

Ok, I have good friends that are on the opposite end of my political beliefs but I'm not thinking about dumping them after 20+ years and we do have dinner out on Saturday nights together.

Rob Andrews

The list can go on and on and on about what the Democrats did to New Jersey. Good people? Hardly.
NJ Is it's own animal... the corruption is in BOTH parties.

And look, I don't delude myself into thinking either party really isn't self serving and full of crap... but come on... how people can honestly continue to think people like Bush are "patriotic" while completely defiling our country, betraying our country and it's people on a daily basis...it's beyond me.

Well, for whatever it's worth, looks like George Burns and Tina Fey are going out on the road again!

Since NJ is heavy Dem control the corruption is very one-sided.
