Does anyone else think that Obama spending all those millions of dollars on prime-time television and taking up air-time on how many stations is a sickening waste when it could be spent on some more worth-while cause other than himself? THIS IS SHARING THE WEALTH? This is his idea of re-distributing the money? He just decided what my vote will be. Tell him to put his money where his mouth is! I won't watch, no matter what else he has to say. He just showed his true colors.

They raked Sarah Palin over the coals for using $150,00 on a new Vice-Presidential wardrobe, and no one seems to care that Obama is spending MILLIONS on this (last-ditch) media flood. I really can't believe Americans throughout this campaign. It has brought all kinds of cockroaches out of the baseboards and whether he gets elected or not, this is going to be a tough place to live from here on.

You don't get it do you? Obama can do no wrong, & if he does, we're not supposed to talk about it. Yes He LIED, & yes he broke his promise to use public funding, trying to blame repub. corruption on the public financing system as his "excuse". If he wins, the only reason will be because he literally "bought" his presidency, through campaign finance & voter registration fraud thanks to his buddies at ACORN. He acepts unproven credit card donations on his website. There is no way of knowing who has funded his campaign. He has has no service that matches credit card #'s to names. He hasn't released his list of contributors like McCain has. McCain is an open book, he has all the safe-guards in place to make sure that whomever contributes to his campaign is ligit, yet everyone looks the other way about Obama...go drink some more of his cool-aid. Wake-up people, enough is enough!

I wonder if the price for the airtime would be different for McCain...probably way higher on every station except Fox

I find it interesting that I am embarassed to be a republican because of the way republicans who tend to be but not always christian conservatives are acting who don't even research or think about what thier saying just blurting out to try to sway peoples opinions. There has been a great downturn in society of our nation which needs a revival. The bible says when the people of a nation repent god will breathe revival upon the land.There is no loyalty to our royalty, people from other countries are more loyal to thier dictators and gov't people who kill thier own people and we just browbeat our leaders who are trying to give us hope...amen

Why don't you move to one of those countries then? Oh waut, you don't have to because if that communist is elected president you won't have to. Maybe I will open a prayer rug store.

Claim: Editorial by pianist Huntley Brown explains why he won't vote for Barack Obama.

Status: True.

Example:[Collected via e-mail, October 2008]
I wanted to send this article from Huntley Brown - a fabulous concert pianist, a man of God and a black man. I appreciate so much his reasoning for not voting for Obama. I would like to see his article published or spread out via Email to as many as possible. It's good stuff!

Why I Can't Vote For Obama
By Huntley Brown

Dear Friends, A few months ago I was asked for my perspective on Obama, I sent out an email with a few points. With the election just around the corner I decided to complete my perspective. Those of you on my e-list have seen some of this before but it's worth repeating.

First I must say whoever wins the election will have my prayer support. Obama needs to be commended for his accomplishments but I need to explain why I will not be voting for him.

Many of my friends process their identity through their blackness. I process my identity through Christ. Being a Christian (a Christ follower) means He leads I follow. I can't dictate the terms He does because He is the leader.

I can't vote black because I am black; I have to vote Christian because that's who I am. Christian first, black second. Neither should anyone from the other ethnic groups vote because of ethnicity. 200 years from now I won't be asked if I was black or white. I will be asked if I knew Jesus and accepted Him as Lord and Savior.

In an election there are many issues to consider but when a society gets abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning to name a few, wrong economic concerns will soon not matter.

We need to follow Martin Luther King's words, don't judge someone by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I don't know

Obama so all I can go off is his voting record. His voting record earned him the title of the most liberal senator in the US Senate in 2007.

NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007 (01/31/2008)

To beat Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton as the most liberal senator, takes some doing. Obama accomplished this feat in 2 short years. I wonder what would happen to America if he had four years to work with.

There is a reason Planned Parenthood gives him a 100% rating. There is a reason the homosexual community supports him. There is a reason Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas etc. love him. There is a reason he said he would nominate liberal judges to the Supreme Court. There is a reason he voted against the infanticide bill. There is a reason he voted No on the constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. There is a reason he voted No on banning partial birth abortion. There is a reason he voted No on confirming Justices Roberts and Alito. These two judges are conservatives and they have since overturned partial birth abortion. The same practice Obama wanted to continue.

Let's take a look at the practice he wanted to continue

The 5 Step Partial Birth Abortion procedures:

A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps.(Remember this is a live baby)
B. The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
C. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.
D. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole.
E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.

God help him. There is a reason Obama opposed the parental notification law.

Think about this: You can't give a kid an aspirin without parental notification but that same kid can have an abortion without parental notification. This is insane.

There is a reason he went to Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years.

Obama tells us he has good judgment but he sat under Jeremiah Wright teaching for 20 years. Now he is condemning Wright's sermons. I wonder why now?

Obama said Jeremiah Wright led him to the Lord and discipled him. A disciple is one in training. Jesus told us in Matthew 28:19 - 20 "Go and make disciples of all nations." This means reproduce yourself. Teach people to think like you, walk like you; talk like you believe what you believe etc. The question I have is what did Jeremiah Wright teach him?

Would you support a White President who went to a church which has tenets that said they have a ...

1. Commitment to the White Community
2. Commitment to the White Family
3. Adherence to the White Work Ethic
4. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the White Community.
5. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting White Institutions
6. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse and embrace the White Value System
7. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value System.

Would you support a President who went to a church like that?

Just change the word from white to black and you have the tenets of Obama's former church. If President Bush was a member of a church like this, he would be called a racist. Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton would have been marching outside.

This kind of church is a racist church. Obama did not wake up after 20 years and just discovered he went to a racist church. The church can't be about race. Jesus did not come for any particular race. He came for the whole world.

A church can't have a value system based on race. The churches value system has to be based on biblical mandate. It does not matter if it's a white church or a black church it's still wrong. Anyone from either race that attends a church like this would never get my vote.

Obama's former Pastor Jeremiah Wright is a disciple of liberal theologian James Cone, author of the 1970 book A Black Theology of Liberation. Cone once wrote: "Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him.

Cone is the man Obama's mentor looks up to. Does Obama believe this?

So what does all this mean for the nation?

In the past when the Lord brought someone with the beliefs of Obama to lead a nation it meant one thing - judgment.

Read 1 Samuel 8 when Israel asked for a king. First God says in 1 Samuel 1:9 "Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do."

Then God says

1 Samuel 1:18 " When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day." 19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel. "No!" they said. "We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles." 21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the LORD. 22 The LORD answered, "Listen to them and give them a king."

Here is what we know for sure.

God is not schizophrenic

He would not tell one person to vote for Obama and one to vote for McCain. As the scripture says, a city divided against itself cannot stand, so obviously many people are not hearing from God.

Maybe I am the one not hearing but I know God does not change and Obama contradicts many things I read in scripture so I doubt it.

For all my friends who are voting for Obama can you really look God in the face and say; Father based on your word, I am voting for Obama even though I know he will continue the genocidal practice of partial birth abortion. He might have to nominate three or four Supreme Court justices, and I am sure he will be nominating liberal judges who will be making laws that are against you. I also know he will continue to push for homosexual rights, even though you destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this. I know I can look the other way because of the economy.

I could not see Jesus agreeing with many of Obama's positions. Finally I have two questions for all my liberal friends.

Since we know someone's value system has to be placed on the nation,

1. Whose value system should be placed on the nation.

2. Who should determine that this is the right value system for the nation?

Blessings, Huntley Brown

Sorry guys..my last few post are meant to be all in one, but it wouldn't let me post anything that large, so I had to break it up...very interesting read though. I wonder if "pas 777" is still "embarassed" to be a republican on here now that I've thrown the true Christian views at him/her on this candidate? As a person of Christ, I'd be embarrassed to vote for such a libral/radical candidate as Obama....Amen

It is not only our privilege as American citizens, but also our DUTY to question our leadership and demand they be accountable for their actions. This country was not founded on some family-inherited tyrant who has unlimited power to kill their own people and do whatever they feel like doing. This country was founded on civil disobedience, the right to choose our leaders, and the privilege of voting a bad one out and a good one in, all the while keeping him accountable to us. This is not a kingdom with "royalty", this is not a tyranny, and this is not a time to blindly follow whatever the other guy thinks. Pray for both of them, because right now we don't know which one will be out leader. Pray for yourself that you will make a sane choice. Ask God's blessing on these elections because we sure do need it. But NEVER stop holding our leaders accountable.
