I voted for McCain, path. I have never voted for a republican before....but...I sat down this week with the platforms for both candidates and took all of the ads and bs out it. I looked at what their plans were and made a decision based on the needs of me and my family.

We have worked hard and sacrificed a lot to get where we are. We'll be paying off student loan debt until we retire...our home has lost 25% of its value and we've lost a huge chunk of our retirement and investments.

I don't think it is right that the 38% of Americans who don't pay taxes will get refunds/rebates/lower taxes and those who have sacrificed and worked to finally start earning more...will be penalized. If Obama had said "Every single American will have to pay 1% more in taxes, and if you currently pay none or get it all back at the end of the year, you will still have to pay 1%, but that is how we will fund x, y, and z..." then I could have backed him.

In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

Is Obama going to socialize medicine? What are the immediate threats? I have relatives in Canada...not a good story, being a patient at any rate.

I'm curious about "disgusted". Why disgusted? Pretty strong word. Who/what is disgusting you? Just curious... [/b]

The ridiculous amount of elitism and double standards. People are sucking down the koolaid in dangerous amounts.

Well, Congrats to all of you that voted for Obama. I hope you get all you hoped for, though I suspect that the Messiah will fall pitifully short. Next time, try wishing on a shooting star. ;) I can't wait for 2012, it'll be a landslide.
