Beginning of the year i was totally anti Obama, But after reading and listening to Romney... Theres just something i don't feel about him.

I just wish everyone here could have these political battles/talks without taking it so personal. Or if they did take it personal i wish they would leave it on this thread. Because that is where it hurts, when it leaks out into the forum. And we have to kill it completly.

I still love you all
I would have to agree! As I have said before, it always seems that it is the lesser of 2 evils ?

I would be interested to hear, if you so choose, what dosn't feel right about Romney ? For me, his core moral compass is more in line with mine !

I would still encourage you to read a few pages back so that you might get a feeling of where I am coming from?

He's full of hot air, and if you look back at all of his promises from 08-09 and then look at everything today, theres no way anyone with common sense can vote for him. What happened to "cutting the defecit in half"? "# 43 added 4.7 trillion to the defecit, and now its time for 44 to Undo it!" and all the other bullsh*t broken promises?
Just remember who does the polls ? If you torture the numbers long enough, you can get them to read any way you want !
As I recall, Regan was supposed to loose to Carter by 39 percent or something like that ?

He is also down in the "right leaning" polls as well. I agree there is still alot of time and anything can happen, but it does not look good for Romney. Like d'Souza pointed out Obama is not the typical democrat, he is able to take advantage of many other voting blocks that would normally be out of reach with his record

Why I don't make a good Jihadist

I don't accept the believe that people cannot talk calmly, respectfully and with understanding about politics and religion. When fights start most often someone has wanted to create the fight either for their own sick entertainment, or because they are very defensive about their beliefs and pyschologically convince others. Some see political fighting like a rivalry between opposing football fans and as just plain fun! Unfortunately, the issues are about life and death and should not be taken so lighty.

As to religion, when someone truly believes in something based in fact, they do not need others to agree for their own pyschological security! Since religions are not based on science/fact, but purely on faith in what cannot be proven, most "true believers" need to try to get everyone to accept their religion out of pyschological insecurity and they get very angry when that doesn't happen. The only other alternative is the theme of Herman Melville's Book, "Moby Dick". That is, to accept you will never know the answers to somethings in this life, namely religion, but you can develop an obvious workable morality from what you see around you in the world. It's a very workable alternative to picking one of the many religions out there and then pretending it makes sense to you and getting defensive and angry when anyone shows they don't accept your believes! Muslims protest a cartoon of Mohammed and Christian ministers and U.S. soldiers burn Korans. Intolerance leads to loss of life! That's why I don't make a good Jihadist!

We should not give up on the belief that we can talk politely about the most important things in life like politics, religion and sex and trucks! If we can't we have not evolved very far!

Remember, Reagan was down by 13 points in September to Carter.

Default A time and a place

Lots of talk regarding why or why not to vote fore either candidate, and the reality is all (most) politicians suck. They vote for what is best for them or their party. I look at this way. One candidate is strong (beholden) socially and one is strong (beholden) financially. Both social and financial issues are important to this country. The current state of our country is an econimic mess that is heading towards the direction of Europe, and at a brisk pace. With that in mind, I would have to lean towards the financial candidate, which is Romney. The social issuies are of lesser importance (now) as if you do not fix the financial issues, there will be zero funding for any social issues. Yes, that is hard, and it is not to say I don't care for those who are in need. But, it will only compound itself if we do not do not fix the financial state of affairs, and the Obama fiscal policies do not lend themselves to that direction.

I couldn't disagree more. That is a violationof our first amendment. ow many Christians rioted in NYC when an artist put a cross of Jesus in urine? None. How about the Jesus in feces statue? None. I am not an expert by any means on the muslim religion(s), nout what I have seen in the last 30 years is that there are too many of them that use their religion as a reason for violence. For example, anytime Mohamed (sp?) has been made fun of, drawn in a satirical way, or mentioned in bad light, a jihad is raised on that individual or country. Think of the cartoonist in Sweeden (think that was the country) Salmon Rushdi, the creators of South Park. It goes on and on. This (potential UN resolution) is a way to placate radical muslims (note I said radical). We (USA)will not give in and should not give in. Fortunately and unfortunately (sometimes) we have the freedom to say what we want.

I never could wrap my head around it.
That was a big boon doggle. Tax payers wound up eating the cost big time. Based on the $3 billion alloted to the program, and an estimated 125,000 thatr were sold due to the program, it cost taxpayers $24,000 per car (was suppose to be $4,000 - $4,500 credit per car). If you were a private company you would be in bankruptcy. Uh, oh, isn't the US heading that direction?

And would someone please explain to me how the govt paying someone to buy a Prius, made in Japan by a Japanese Company, benefits the US economy other than padding a car dealer's pockets.
