If there are any "terrorists" in this election, they are John McCain and Sarah Palin, traveling across this nation, attempting (and, in many cases, with frightening success) to strike terror into the hearts and minds of susceptible Americans. A campaign full of lies, personal and political smears, and jingoism. All picked up by their followers, who dutifully extend the terror campaign into neighborhoods and towns. The McCain/Palin campaign incites their followers through a rhetoric of suspicion, fear, racism, and hatred. They are two of the most despicable politicians to ever arise on the American political scene. One can find their counterparts across the globe: Le Pen (France), Russian neo-nazi gangs in Israel; the NDP in Germany; Strache in Austria; the list goes on. All spewing hatred and ratcheting up the fears of their base.

Obama/Biden 08. You betcha'.

You are worse than the actual Republicans that you despise by using the word 'terror' to encite fear.

How does it feel?

The neo-cons dish it out, but they can't take it.

Slamming a man like John McCain and accusing him of scare tactics, you know, the John McCain that your vice presidential candidate wanted to run with, is beyond irrational.
Anyone who does not question Obama's connections, the radical viewpoints of his church and the lack of information about him during his college years, the fact that he is the most liberal senate member and has consistently lied about his connections to these people and philosophies is not a clear thinker.
I live in Illinois and have watched Obama in and around politics here since his beginning. The idea that he is able to run for the highest office in the land is beyond unbelieveable to me. The idea that so many Americans hate the Bush administration enough to support a man like Obama who is clearly unqualifies is beyond disturbing.

^did you watch him. Did you see his work?

Don't use the fact that you're from the same state, so you know him as a reason to slam him.

Panic, panic, panic.

Anyone who does not question McCain's and Palin's connections, their radical viewpoints, blah, blah, blah. The fact that you come from Illinois is irrelevant. There are many, many people from Illinois who have worked with Obama for many, many years--including some Republicans--and they don't seem to have the same irrational fears that you do.
