Please please please! No voting for rich kid McCain or devil woman Palin.

Obama's not much better either, but he's the only alternative to hell!

McCain seems like a cleverer Bush type character, which would be so dangerous!

I think all of your responses are kind of funny, but seriously...I am glad some people see what I see...and yes, I will be voting...who for...I don't know, because as of right now I think all political figures should look like Dumbo....they seriously need to stop talking..they are all just making themselves look like fools

Vote for me!! Happy nah I have no idea on who to vote either. I think McCain is a robot under Bush's control and Palin is there to make sure he doesnt rust while holding her oil can. Obama is promising way to much for it be realistic in the end if things get to worse I am moving next door to Michelle. lol

I'm watching this programme that said that a lot of people weren't on the lists that said they could vote last time, the people who had to get the names made names up because they got money for each name. People in rich white areas got to vote in 15 mins, people in poor black areas had to wait 4 hours, outside, in rain to vote due to lack of voting machines.

Politicains are all the same, petty name calling so that they make the opposition look stupid instead of actually just saying what they want to do. All I ever remember when I've heard politicians make a speech is the pettyness.

I think what happens in America is extremely important for the rest of the world and Britain is it's strongest ally so it's important we know.

I wish I could vote none of the above. Actually. I hate it every election we've had since I was voting age, is picking the lesser of 2 evils! To bad Ron Paul didn't make it this far he would have my vote!

Well, in the process of politicians picking on each other they are just making eachother stupid. I would have to agree with Tara, I wish there was a none of the above area...and also, I remember discussing this in my U.S. History class, but it sucks that American's only have 2 choices...now..how is that fair...why is it fair for Amerian's to have to choose between 2 people when there are millions of different personalities and needs?

UGH! I'M SO ANGRY that In one of the most important elections... I am not of voting age by just a few months! WHICH IS REDICULOUS! My crazy aunt is voting because Obama is hot [which is stupid, but its fine, because its one more vote AGAINST McCain] and I know SO MUCH MORE than her and most adults I know with politics. I think if you are over 14 but still under 18, you should be able to take some kind of test to prove that you know politics, AND THEN be able to vote!


But yea.... Obama, definatley.



I pretty much hate Palin as a person, and sadly, It's become more of her election than it has McCain. Honestly, I was driving today and I saw a bumper sticker that said "SARAH!" in huge letter, and under it in tiny tiny printing "vote mccain/palin"

its like... dude... why not MCCAIN!


Or... actualy Obama since he is not a jackass, but honestly, if you are more conservative and really think a repulican will be good in office [because it worked so well the LAST TWO terms] then vote MCCAIN, don't vote palin.

It is kind of really her election though, because McCain has SO SO SO MANY freaking health problems, a lot of doctors agree that he will probably die in 2 years, so yay.... we'll have an idiot in office.

It makes me really sad as well that a woman is SO VERY CLOSE to being in one of the top two positions, and its HER! Its just another stupid thing some sexist will use against us!

I have SO many opinions with this, but... I'm gonna stop typing, before I make myself angry, lol. Happy

Yeah, it's always the way that every time a woman gets close to breaking some barriers, she's a massive bitch. Like Thatcher, our only ever female prime minister or prime ministress, as I like to say. What did she do? She shut down coal mines meaning thousands of working class people lost their livelihood, and she bombed a retreating ship in the Falklands war. A nasty piece of work. I loved it when someone decapitated that statue of her. :-D

it's always the way a woman does something, as if a women working is a new concept, on Loose Women it's always about the way a woman copes and does something 'how do you do this as a woman' sort of thing...you know what i mean...anyways

I hate how Palin used the word 'victory' for iraq issues.. very clever, that will get some Americans really hyped up about her, it's a very old fashioned way of looking at it and it's not like WWI is it. Americans they've interviewed really don't seem to trust Obama which is very odd considering the Republicans record.

Ob.....boom whatever his name is, is just stupid >.> He doesn't know how many states are in the us and he is a BABY KILLER!!! He's just talking out the side of his neck, he has no clue what he's saying nor does her care he just wants to make sure everyone's eyes are on him and thinks he's wonderful. He can be a very good lie just like Billy, he can look at us and say "I did not sleep with that woman" And cry >_< I don't really like McCain either, since he's dying and then that woman will take over but he's not a baby killer though it kinda is since he's all for the war >.> SO lets not kill them as babies but later once their 18.... I think we should all just run to Canada free health care!!!

What do you mean by "baby-killer". If you are refering to his stance on abortion, he is PRO-CHOICE. Not pro-abortion, not anti-life, but PRO-CHOICE. He knows that is the woman's rights to CHOOSE what to do with her own body, if the fetus will do any harm to her, if the fetus will even grow up happy and healthy, if it will have a good life or if the mother can only do it harm. And even if a woman says she will just give it up for adoption, more than half of woman get attached to their kids and keep them while still trying to support whatever addiction they have, or supporting both them and their child while working some crappy minimum wage-salary, many times the woman become angry at their kids, they blame them, and its just NOT a good environment. I'm not saying abortion is ALWAYS right and we should be able to just kill whatever children we feel like. And I'm not saying that those girls who have get an abortion every couple of months are RIGHT, but with the right restrictions on it, Abortion is NOT wrong. Sometimes, bringing a child into the world we are in now, especially if you don't live in a good place like me, THATS the true evil! Now if you have actually heard that he's killed a child already born, well thats just weird, I have not heard that. Plus, the "how many states are in the us", He actually does, he is an incredibly intelligent man, but everyone makes mistakes when speaking. We can't always be perfect, especially when we memorize a speech, or are speaking impromptu. Sometimes we mispeak and we say things we don't mean do, but you shouldn't bash him on that. He is HUMAN. I really don't LIKE either candidate, but I will give credit where it is due, and its due to BOTH candidates. Neither are amazing, they are no JFK or Thomas Jefferson, BUT THEY DEFINATLEY ARN'T ANOTHER BUSH [well, McCain is kind of, but he has more experience] and I think reflecting on their bad traits isn't going to do any good. Focus on which one can do the MOST GOOD, not which can do the least evil. From where we are with our economy, there isn't much farther we can go down, so I definatley think it will get better with WHOMEVER goes into office [unless McCain dies, because seriously... I mean, I always try to look for the best in people, BUT JESUS PALIN IS SUCH AN IDIOT! I can't find anything I would like about her leadership. Her being the runningmate is NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING but complete .... Politics. She is ONLY their because she is a young attractive woman... GAH she maks me so mad]. My POINT is, just STAY ON THEIR POLITICS. If you don't agree with his abortion views, tell WHY, don't just say he is a baby killer, that is propoganda and its not helpful and its STUPID [I'm not saying you are stupid, but THAT is stupid]. State statistics, actually look up FACTS and quotes. Don't say that they are stupid because they misspoke, its a normal human error. Use their policies to denounce them if you really want to, don't just say whatever you can come up with.

I think any "I'm not Bush" campaign will work as well as the last couple did (in so many words: not so well)

I think the only reason we are looking so hard at Palin is because she's a woman. I don't think she's much better or worse than many VP candidates that've run before. It's just now the most anonymous job in America is in the spotlight. What I think is fairly ridiculous is the fact that for awhile every news program I watched was comparing Palin to Obama. Granted McCain may snuff it, but working at a doctor's office really lets you see that anyone can snuff it at any time for any reason.

"Don't say that they are stupid because they misspoke, its a normal human error." Unless you're Bush. Then you get a website!

I don't know who I'm voting for. I might just vote for who ever my boyfriend /doesn't/ vote for, to keep the count between us nil. Tongue I think that's a stupid way to do it, but I've been looking forward to voting and I've not been able to vote in the other two elections I was able to vote in because then I /really/ didn't like either candidate. I'd at least like to vote. Though it's hard to be fairly conservative, yet still hold a fair amount of Democratic views. I manage to piss everyone off.
