Though the republican party is far from perfect the socialist programs of the democratic will end up taxing us even further down. How else will they be paid for?

I cannot afford to continue paying for those who have realized that others will take care of them.

I am sick of paying for social programs in public schools that are not related to the basics and teaching anti-bullying, paying for every single group to have a outlet there for a club or class that takes away from the basics of education (including art, music and PE). And yes there are a lot of groups out there (such as teh HSUS and PeTA trying to get programs into school cirricula).

I am sick of paying for people who should not even be here legally.

I am sick of seeing seniors unable to retire due to taxes to pay for socialist programs that we weill never benefit from.

This is what we will get if the dems make it into office - especially if they monopolize the house and senate too (we will lose the checks and balances).

DO a bit more homework - McCain basically pulled ties once this was found out as opposed to Obama and ACORN and his lovely friend who is a domestic terrorist now teaching at a concert.

"Six congressmen, Democrats John Jenrette of South Carolina, Raymond Lederer of Pennsylvania, Michael Myers of Pennsylvania, John Murphy of New York and Frank Thompson of New Jersey, and Republican Richard Kelly of Florida, and one senator, Democrat Harrison Williams of New Jersey, were convicted of bribery and conspiracy charges in 1981.

Democratic Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania also was indicted but not prosecuted because he gave evidence against Murphy and Thompson. Only one lawmaker, Republican Sen. Larry Pressler of South Dakota, refused to take the bribe, saying at the time, "Wait a minute, what you are suggesting may be illegal."

The Senate Ethics Committee concluded that Glenn and McCain's involvement in the scheme was minimal and dropped the charges against them. In August 1991, the committee ruled that the other three senators had acted improperly in interfering with the Federal Home Loan Banking Board's investigation.

Ayers - Obama's buddy - but gee I was 8 when he did this... Screw you Barry for that one.

"William Ayers, unrepentant terrorist and education professor, is once again being tied to Barack Obama in the public mind. Controversy builds over the withholding of the archives of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, an expensive failed school reform effort headed by Obama and effectively run by Ayers, held by the library of the University of Illinois Chicago. Researchers who have gained access to a few documents recording the history of the project have found strong evidence of a very important working relationship between the two men on the project, Obama's sole claim to executive experience." Thomas Lifson http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/200...

Now, I personally would not want a president with ties to a domestic terrorist who feels no remorse other than he did not do more!

Obama is a terrorist, Obama is a terrorist. You people are clueless. This is exactly why McCain is dropping in the polls. People are concerned about their finances, not about this non story. This Ayers stuff came up during the primaries, it just didnít pan out. McCain thinks this will fire up the base. Well Iíve got news for you. Youíll need more than the base to win this election. You need to get non committed, middle of road people to believe that you have a strategy for the future. And going around calling Obama a terrorist isnít doing it.

I hope you people ride this strategy all the way to election day.

Do you have any proof of this?

Here's some questions for you.
Why will Obama not release his college records?
Why did he order both Columbia U. and Harvard to seal his records?
Is he afraid we would find out who really paid his tuition?
He said he received scholarships, but who paid for them?
This begs the questuion, what is he trying to hide?

Why are you asking me...as to the woman being a dictator I have been calling her that ever since I found out about the books she tried to get removed..

As far as Obama's records you know what I am not sure, I thought these records are sealed anyways, I had no idea you had to request that...
Anyways, do you know how long that was ago?

Sorry I am not feeling anything evil coming from that man, I watched his wife and children when he gave his acceptance speech, and to me they are regular people brought up in a loving home...That is what I get from them, the children did not seem they had to practice anything special for their appearance you know, all around just regular kids, they weren't raised for the lime light, and I don't think that would change...

So as far as his records and who paid for his education, I don't think has any hold on him, he doesn't seem like a stressed person with many secrets he seems like he really cares, and I doubt that whoever if there was someone that paid for his education knew that one day he would become President...

Maybe he didn't have the best of grades...

But I am sure it matters a lot..not...

Please tell me you are not still buying into that book ban falsehood. That was debunked almost as soon as it came out ( factcheck.org ).

I'm sure his grades were very good or he would not have been accepted into Harvard.
I can find no evidence of any other president or presidential canidate sealing their college records.

Prior to attending Columbia U., Obama traveled extensively throughout the Mid-East. Where did that money come from?

Robert Malley, one of Obama's advisers was fired, but only after the news media revealed that he (Mallory) had regular contacts with Hamas.

Perhaps it's not important to you as to who funded him, but it to me and many others.
What if, I'm not saying it's true, but what if Obama's tuition had been payed by Hamas or some other Mid-East entity? Would it matter to you then?

Before the people hand over the keys to the White House, we should know everything about the person who will become the president of the most powerful country in the World.

Trust, but verify.

What a TOTAL, utter embarrasment for McCain supporters. ALL this talk by the republicans that "Obama's an Arab" gets spread, then it's McCain that has to TELL these idiots that Obama's not an Arab.

I just LOVE the part when McCain tells this FOOL that Obama's not an Arab...He's NOT ? the lady replies. O-M-G. Imagine how she felt afterward..
"These republicans have been LYING to me? "

OK idiots, now what ?

It's amazing how one senior citizen's probable slip up, knowing she was on livenational media said the wrong country. I'm sure she did feel bad, when she realized what she'd said. I've seen nor read anything further about ALL the talk, except replays.
