People wouldn't vote for Obama, if they know the truth.

The problem with Obama's tax plan is NOT that a few people will be paying a "little" more.

The problem is that he is lying and records prove it.

1.) The tax policy institute says Obama's plan will increase income taxes on anyone earning over 200,000 NOT 250,000.

2.) Obama's Capital Gains Tax Increase will effect over 100 million people. Anything people get from the "income tax cut" will be OFFSET by the CAPITAL GAINS TAX INCREASE.

3.) Obama's INCREASED Corporate TAX will effect all of US! Companies will either PASS THE INCREASE ONTO US OR They will lay off workers to pay for the tax increase.

4.) yOU CANNOT trust what Obama says: Obama CLAIMS he will NOT raise taxes on the middle class...but Obama has VOTED TO RAISE TAXES ON ANYONE EARNING $42,000 or higher...HE VOTED THIS YEAR TO DO THAT!!!!

Obama Voted In Favor Of The Democrats' FY 2009 Budget, Which Would Raise Tax Rates For Americans Earning $42,000 Or More:(FY 2009 Budget Resolution.(S. Con. Res. 70, CQ Vote #85: Adopted 51-44: R 2-43; D 47-1; I 2-0, 3/14/08, Obama Voted Yea; S. Con. Res. 70, CQ Vote #142: Adopted 48-45: R 2-44; D 44- 1; I 2-0, 6/4/08, Obama Voted Yea))

The Democrats' Budget Would Raise Taxes On Individuals Earning Approximately $42,000 Or More.( FactCheck.org , "The $32,000 Question," www.factcheck.org , 7/11/08)

Obama is just talking the talk. He is a politician and will say ANYTHING to get elected.

Listen, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand that a minority candidate, especially one that has been discriminated against because of his background, upbringing, and even his name, probably understands other minorities better than someone without that perspective.
Obama and Hispanics have NOTHING in common. He supports abortion (murder of babies) across the board. Diaz is a Mexican who hangs out in her recent immigrant (legal and illegal) circles. Most Hispanics in NM have roots back to the 1500's. Most NM Hispanic families are hard working, proud people who aren't on the dole and aren't looking for a handout. No Obama.

People get your heads out of the sand and really take a look at this man.
Hey! We (not me) voted for a person who burned our flag oversees.

Haha! I was wondering when you would get to the Irish. You've already bashed just about every other race. Your posts have been like a capsule history of racism in America over the last 200 years.

Have you gotten to the Chinese and the Italians yet? I can't remember. I am sure you will have something really cogent and intellectual to say when you do.

Don't you wish you lived 150 years ago when you could just shoot the people you didn't like? You could have gotten on with Union Pacific shooting coolies they didn't want to pay after the railraods were all built. I'll bet you would have liked that.

I'm hispanic and I have my own views on things. I may not agree with either candidate on every issue. I don't agree with Obama on abortion or same sex marriage. But, times are changing, Roe vs. Wade will never be overturned. We had 4 years at the beginning of Bush's term when they could have possibly changed it, but it never happened and same sex marriage is here and I don't think nothing is going to change that. My concerns are with the economy and my childrens future. Their future is looking very grimm if we continue on the same track we are on now. I'm a independant. I believe if our Country is to become great again and be the alli that everyone wants on their side then things need to change in our society. Do your own research? Don't listen to the slandering on commercials or the people on this forum. Think about whats important to you and your family. Then decide. I wouldn't base my vote on my religious beliefs, but on what I think is best for my country and my family. Education and health care are also two very important issues, so research each candidates view on it and what their plan is and decide what fits you and your family best.

Just like you. I don't really care too much about both candidates however one of these fools will be our next president and I have done some research and found out that I will vote for McCain because As you stated "Vote what's important for you and your family and their future" Well I base my vote on various fact's such as:

That Obama was a druggie who experimented with drugs(what a great role model for my kids) and he also hung out with anti-american propoganda supporters (Ayers and others who burn the American flag because in Obama view as well as his wife the american flag represents oppression to minorities in this country, maybe back then but not now) in his past. He also refused when the NATIONAL Anthem was played, to place his right hand over his heart (during his enaugeration as Illinois senator). He also was room mates with pakastani's while attending Occidental University in which he switched his name to Barack from barry. Shortly after this he took a trip to pakistan where for no apparent reason had alot of money for college even though his mother could not get the health care that she needed. He also switches his views to appease the audience for their support. He also has less experience in which it has worked to his advantage because, since he has not been in politics very long it is hard to find anything negative or positive to say about Obama. One thing I like about Obama is that he is young and energetic. Over-all I think Obama is wishy washy.

With McCain he has served our beloved country for most of his life. He was working around Washington D.C. when he was an officer in the U.S. Navy and it continued when he left the Navy and he has witnessed the many different leadership abilities of our past presidents (30 years worth). I'm sure many of you know that when someone gets their MBA they don't just start out running a company it takes years to learn the tricks of the trade. And I feel that McCain has that long standing experience while Obama will be learning as he goes. McCain is a republican that has even stood-up against his own party when he felt it was the right thing to do (that takes guts) He is firm on his issues not like Obama who constantly switches his views. One thing I hate about McCain is his age I really don't want a president to wear adult diapers. also I don't like the the fact that he will lead us to another war however if it's to protect America from harm then I will have to support him in this negative decision.
So between the both of these fools I will vote for McCain

Who care who he hung out with...does that really matter is time of pre-recession? Did it ever occur to you that these are the people he needs to form an alliance with. Are you really against the country coming together and forming strong ties w/other nations that we once had conflicts with?

"He experimented w/drugs" Are you serious?? Who did'nt..it did'nt mean he made a career out of it. You are worried about what your kids will think? Then don't tell them that, they probably would'nt have such a negative view of the world around them, if you would instill POSITIVE ones!
