    Along with Obama you are going to get the Rev.'s Wright and Flager in the White House. When they get to work with Michelle, 'whites will have no rights." The oppressed will become the oppressors.

    I'm off to Australia for 4 years-see ya.

    Obama's economic plan will be better than McCain. If the Amerian people haven't realize Obama is for them and McCain is for the wealthy, then they never will. End of Story!

    OK let be real,

    McCain does not have a clue about the average american. Therefore, let me tell you what he is going to start saying (pandering).

    Just look at one of Obama's speeches and there you have it. He is not only taking the change theme, he will begin to offer what Obama is offering.

    Please give americans a break, most of us know pandering when we see it.

    I do not for the life of me understand why any one who is not rich votes for McCain. I think the majority of it is racism. Everyone alive has seen the last 8 years, and still they choose to vote to hurt themselves.

    I pray the all wake up and smell BS.

    We put our trust in Obama because he is the only one who really cares about the THE PEOPLE.
    How do I know?
    Obama was that gentelman, still in his twenties, who gave up a big salary on Wall Street and went to work and help Main Street as a Community Organizer for THE PEOPLE!
    We trust him because we know he gets it and he cares.
    Obama is going to do it again. He is intelligent and capable to put Main Street and Wall Street back and rolling on it's feet.
    We Love You Obama!

    It goes something like this: The government takes over everything, and makes all of your choices for you. Just read some Karl Marx and you'll get the picture.

    Why isn't the Palin abuse of power getting more legs? If this were a charge against Senator Obama or Biden the GOP would be attacking them 24/7 over it. Is this because Palin is a woman that she is able to get away with it. It was actually her husband who was the most guilty using his wife's executive position to constantly pressure numerous state officials from the governor's office and recourses. Sarah and Todd did not pressure people to fire their ex-brother-in-law on their own personal time. They pressured people from the governors office on government time with government resources. They pressured subordinates under Sarah Palin who she could fire at any time to fire their ex-brother-in-law. This was a personal vendetta they had. It is absolutely ridiculous that Sarah and Todd Palin are getting away with this.

    My husband and I live in Ogden, Utah. We operate a pet care business with 17 employees that we cannot possibly provide health insurance for. I work at a local nature preserve, where I am able to get health insurance for our family. Our business is sound, but we struggle to get ahead because of the incredibly high taxes we pay each year. We would like to open a second location and afford health care for our employees. What will your plan do to help us?

    We are looking forward to hearing what Obama has to say. Finally we have a candidate that has the intelligence to lead the country. After eight years of a complete moron, it's about time! McCain cannot distance himself from Bush, voting over 90% of the time with Bush does NOT make you a maverick. Wake up American, our country is in a terrible crisis and we need smart leadership, not catch phrases and slogans. John McCain does not give us Straight talk, nor does he believe in Country First – it's all about John McCain first.
    As for Palin, I think she is the worst of all liers because for some reason she believes what she is saying.
    God help us and God Bless America!
    Vote Democrat this year.

    I think that someone has to come up with a plan and I never believed that Senator Mccain would come up with one. I think that it is time that we as a country move forward at this time and I don't say it will be simple or short, but doable.So whatever is presented we work with it and deal with the flexiblity of it for there must be unforseen changes in it.

    Many people seem to overlook that Obama got his donations from the FM and FM employees and McCain got his donations from FM/FM as a company. I will go with Obama as The President at any time or moment.
