overton county is democratic because the most of the people are working people and live below the poverty level. The democrats do try to help the working people and the poor. But when has a republican ever helped any body but the rich?

Because everybody does what their family always did. They don't look at the real issues. I quit going the way my "family" voted years ago. They were voting for things I didn't myself believe in. I also quit going to a church when the elders and their families had bumper stickers on their cars for the people that were "pro-choice". How could I possibly go somewhere and surround myself with people that were for killing babies? When questioned about it, they just gave me all kinds of nonsense that all people do when asked "How can you do that?" People need to open their eyes and ears and listen, not just do the same old same old, as they say. The democratic party is not the same old same old.

The reason is because most of us like to have jobs and make a decent living. The economy is important to us. Unlike republicans who only want to start a war.

you know it's probably won't matter who gets in because it's so messed up now from the 8 yrs of Bush that it may never recover.And McBush sure doesnt sound like he can do any better then obama
they are all liars. some just more than others
we are the poor here.you might not think that but it's true.and palin said that people with special needs kids would have an advocate in the WH well they sure dont have one now do they so many have lost there insurance they rather put them in a home or not help at all..its all a crock of shi* and I base my judgment on the one i think will do the best and right now i wouldnt
say i liked one more than the other.we have so many elderly that can't hardly make it. they do without food or get there meds and they "might" be able to get 15.00 in food stamps what a shame that we dont care of our own but take care of people in other countries and we change for whoever come to the great USA...yes we change for them ,,give them things ok i better hush i am getting pissed.

Well, I just have to jump on here. After my own heart.

Duh, why would anyone vote republican? Yes Bill Clinton did sign NAFTA but a bunch of republicans sure voted for it too, does that not count?

34 of the 61 that voted YEA for NAFTA is republican. and of course YES MCCain did vote YEA

Also when Bill Clinton was in office, we were not losing our jobs. Everything was the best it had been in years. Job security, social security, TENNCARE, Unemployment was the lowest it had been in years. The American dollar was worth $1.00, etc...

Based on Congressional accounting rules, at the end of his presidency Clinton reported a surplus of $559 billion.

Republicans won control of the House of Representatives for the first time in forty years.

This is where our problems started.

Clinton left office with a high approval rating of 65%

Where is Bush? Is he even in the 30's.

I don't even want to go into where we stand on national debt.

Overton County is very smart but of course there are always the few dumb asses. I would be ashamed for my name to be on the Republican ticket.

What about this Palin? Good choice?! Don't think so, do they really think women are that dumb to fall for her just because she is a woman. Seems like to me her job is going to be to critize Obama. That is all she did in her WELCOME speech. I am not an obama fan, but I sure am not voting republican.

WRITE IN HILLARY! THAT IS MY PLAN.

Yeah Bill signed NAFTA and I dont like it but hey guess what George Bush has renewed it twice since he was in office sounds like he likes it also he signed CAFTA (central american free trade agreement) yeah REP. wont mention that will they. By the way gas was just over 1.00 a gallon when Bill left office, as a matter of fact gas did not start going up till 2003. Can you say oil man bush. Thats right no one to blame for gas but Bush and Rep. GW sold the country to China to finance HIS WAR at last count 181 billion dollars we now owe China. No I am not a Dem.I vote independ but Mcsame has not said anything impressive and palin even less so what a joke. Yeah there is a good one former memeber of the AIP (Alaskan Indepence Party) thiks Alaska should succed from the union and form its on country dont beleive me look it up. I will be voting for Ralph Nader. At least he does not want to give illegals automatic citizenship like both of the others. Next time do your research before you start blaming people.

Tell me one thing Republicans can do for us or has done for us and I will vote republican. Oh my God it hurts to even say that.

I am not voting democrat because of "good old family tradition". My father is a registered republican. Makes for interesting family get togethers, let me tell you. So why are you voting republican, family members?? hmmm. of are you exempt from this?

Hillary is our best choice - definitely over Palin.

Did you not notice that George Bush has also has kept NAFTA going. He has renewed it not once but twice. He could have VETOED it also. He voted for it, everytime it has been brought to vote.

Who is the gullible one? Maybe you should read up on the issues.

It's so funny that everyone says that the Republicans are for the rich... If that was the case you'd think NY and CA would always go republican, but they always go for the democrats. All Hollywood and the media is democrats also. So yeah that shows how much you know. If Rep. was help the rich you'd see Ca, NY, and all the celebs. in Hollywood voting Rep.. I think you got that all backwards

It's funny how people are so against Palin. Just because she came out of nowhere and is more experienced than Obama is. Hillary doesn't hold a candle to her. Hillary would be nothing without Bill
