I think the forum went well, and i was so happy to see the first Black Male soon to be the President of the United States. I belive he cares about the economy and the people period, all races.

i'm just preying that he doesn't get elected. i really like deciding on my own healthcare and can't really afford higher taxes to pay for every unemployed/lazy/illegal's healthcare. People need to wake up, if he wins hes going to destroy this county. i really don't want government intervention in every aspect of my life. what has happened to the personal responsibility that made this county great. these days everyone wants someone to make all their decisions for them and pay for their food/healthcare/childcare/educ ation etc.

Has anyone been paying attention to his energy policies or any of his other policies for that matter. It seems people are so caught up in the whole "first black president" and "great speaker" thing that they fail to realize that there is no experience or substance behind the ridiculous things that he says.

i challenge anyone to post just ONE real accomplishment this guy has had in the ONE year that he was actually in the senate, since hes spent the second year of his term for this campaign. Just one accomplishment, on bill he passed that actually meant something to the american people. i bet i'll get no responses... we'll see.

Obama is one helleva dangerous guy. He does a good job of delivering a speech provided it’s written by someone else and provided he has time to rehearse it. Otherwise, he appears uncertain, searching for words and generally seems confused. The church he attended for 20 years, Trinity, has it’s roots in Black Liberation Theology. Black Liberation Theology is based on black power, socialism and Marxism. You’ve seen the Reverend Wright videos. This guy was Obama’s mentor - a man he looked up to. Obama attended this church and listened to this guy preach this stuff for 20 years. You do not do that unless you believe in it. He conveniently resigned from the church when it became apparent that his continued membership would hurt him politically. Black Liberation Theology believes that everyone should be equal - no wealthy class, no poor class. A large, central government would bring about equality by determining what everyone needs and providing it to them. If that sounds somewhat familiar to you, it should. It’s called Communism and it has failed anywhere and everywhere it’s been tried. Look at the friends Obama surrounds himself with. It’s tough to find any who are not corrupt, violent, subversive, anti-American or racist. Nearly every day a new questionable character pops up from Obama’s life . The question to ask is why is this man attracted to this type of character. Look at Obama’s voting record. Both in the Illinois State Senate and in the US Senate, he has failed to vote on hundreds and hundreds of issues. Listen to how he likes to say “I did not vote for……..“ He says that to make you think he voted against whatever issue he is speaking about. The truth is he seldom votes “against” or “for” anything. He simply doesn’t vote. And he never, never votes either way on any issue or legislation that is the least bit controversial. Obama is perhaps the greatest threat facing this nation today. If those who can see no deeper than the emotional rhetoric of this man walk blindly into the polls this November and manage to elect him, he will bring this country to its knees as it has never been before.

Why does Obama want to impose additional taxes on oil, gas and coal companies when it is well known that business s pass these additional costs on to consumers in the form of higher retail prices for gasoline and home heating oil?

Why does Obama want to give drivers’ licenses to illegal immigrants?

Why does Obama want to provide illegal immigrants with free healthcare?

Why does Obama want to block additional drilling for oil and advocate wind and solar power which are not proven to be technologically adaptable for wide scale use?

Why does Obama want to put the brakes on nuclear power when the rest of the world is embracing it and getting as much as 80 percent of their electric power from it?

Why does Obama want to send billions of our tax dollars to Africa and other foreign places to help alleviate poverty when there are American Citizens living in poverty and suffering hunger here in the United States?

Why does Obama want to raise income tax rates, the capital gains tax, the social security tax and reinstate the estate tax when these measures will hurt small businesses and the elderly living on their life savings?

Good heavens you guys really depress me. Send Obama back to Africa?? Where were you raised and do you kiss your mother with that mouth? John McCain is no more American than Obama. I guess that whole Bubba vote stereotype I denied existed is still alive and well. I just hope that one black person you claim as a friend and is your self proclaimed proof that you aren't a bigot won't get wind of this.

America was founded by white christians like John McCain not negro muslims like the obamination. At least John McCain's mother is not a race mixing slut and John McCain wasn't raised to be a terrorist like that mongrel crypto-Muslim Obama. According to the muslim faith, once a muslim ALWAYS a muslim. He is a muslim and a communist and not only she he be sent back to Africa but so should the whole of the inferior race that this affirmative action loser represents. America would be far better off without the blacks! All blacks are good for is cashing welfare checks and commiting crimes. Send them ALL back to Africa where they belong! I hate the ugly, lazy, stupid violent scumbags!

Obama is a negro and a muslim. His parents were miscegenationists. John McCain is white and a Christian. Just like America's founding fathers. To elect that black muslim as president would be an insult to them. John McCain's parents aren't miscegenationists. Obama is Un-American. He needs to be deported to Africa. The blacks have outstayed their welcome. They all need deporting. America was founded as a white Christian nation not a negro Islamic one like that commuinst Obama wants to turn it into.
