To start out, I am a moderate to slightly conservate independent. In my opinion, we are now left with 3 liberals to vote for. Of the 3, I will vote for Obama, as I feel it is important for the President to be a great communicator, which he is. I do not agree with the policies of all 3, so this is what I am left with.

HOWEVER, Hillary is scaring the crap out of me with her actual words. I have watched all the debates on both sides and I have to wonder why the media does not question her on things she says or stands for. I was thinking for a while that she is a socialist, which is bad enough as we are actually a democracy, but now I am questioning if she might actually be a full fledged communist.

She stated in the last debate that she wants to set the interest rate for mortgages for at least 5 years. Isn't that what the leader of Iran does?

She wants to decide when, where and who I get to see for my medical issues. Isn't that what Cuba does?

She says she is for workers, yet wasn't it the CLINTONS that signed the trade deal with China in return for hundreds of millions of dollars in donations to the Clinton foundations? The result is less jobs in the US and more for their communist friends.

Why doesn't the media ask her these questions and put her on the spot. Why don't they put the facts and figures in front of her and ask how she can explain these away.

TEXAS, you have a unique opportunity here. Everyone can vote for whomever they want. John McCain, eshhhhh, is the Republican nominee to be and you can't change that. You need to vote for Obama in the primary for the sole reason of ending the possibility of Clinton getting back into the Whitehouse. Remember, you may think she is easier to beat, but they will stop at nothing to get what they want. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Not to mention that there is not a snowball chance in you know where that McCain will win. The media is already starting their, destroy Mccain segment.

Whomever the Democratic nominee is, will be the next president. DO YOU REALLY WANT HER?? CAN YOU SLEEP WELL AT NIGHT WITH HER IN A BACK ROOM, DECIDING HOW YOU MUST LIVE YOUR LIFE?

Republicans, independents and democrats, we must unite and protect America. We cannot let her take it from us.

I don't see any real difference between Clinton and Obama other than he seems like a nice person and she doesn't. It's still bigger government and less individual responsibility if you vote for either one of them. I guess I'll be stuck with McCain.

She does seem to give the government alot of power in order to fix the current administrations problems,WE CANNOT AFFORD TO LET HER GET INTO THE WHITE HOUSE.. Look at the skeletons in her closet from her husband's time in office.

I think after nearly 30 years of corporations gaining immense power in the USA- creating a worker clone class of human being which has no rights- and can be terminated at will, without ever working long enough to have a pension, or health care benefits- the real communists here are not Hillary or Obama but the corporations themselves and their wealthy shareholders!

There is simply too much power concentrated in the hands of the corporate moguls. Its the opposite of big government communism- or is it?

Teddy Roosevelt- the last progressive republican broke the trusts and big business interests 100 years ago- he claimed they had gained too much power over ordinary Americans. The same could easily be said of today. Both Hillary and Obama are indeed populists and progressives in the image of TR- while McCain represents the past.

I truly believe he is a communist and will force his wrongful ways our country.
He wants to control your every move and tell you how to spend what little money you will have left once he is done with your paycheck.
