    Re: LR Goldsworthy's concern about abortion. While the abortion issue is not unimportant, to make it the litmus test for one's vote for the president is ludicrous. How about McCain's ardent promotion of the invasion of Iraq where thousands of Americans have lost their lives and tens of thousands of Iraqis have lost there? What . . . the unborn are more important than they are? Not to mention that McCain/Palin would readily resort to military action in future cases where someone did something that upset them to much. I mean, really . . . you don't talk to enemies; you kill them! How does THAT fit into any reading of Jesus' life and teachings?

    I have ruined this country and would really appreciate it if the voters would let my good friend John McCain and that whining lady from Alaska to keep this dear country on the same track.

    So what if his half-Aunt is an illegal alien. Cindy's father was a convicted felon and she committed a felony herself when she stole those drugs. McCain sang like a bird as a POW and killed a friend in 1964 drunk driving.

    What i want to know is why are ppl so afraid of a Black POTUS? and why is it being said that if we don't vote for McCain/Palin then we are selling America? To whom are we selling? I keep hearing that becuz Obama is Black (really mixed race) that he will be all for Black/African-American people. So does that mean that ALL of the previous White Presidents were only for White ppl? ALL ppl in America are or their ancestors were immigrants unless you are Native American. But just the IDEA of a prez that is not White scares ALOT of White ppl. Why be afraid? Becuz of the racism that is STILL alive and well in this wonderful country of ours?! Racism is a learned behavior, you are NOT born with it. Just goes to show how many ignorant ppl there still are in the US of A!
