  • I'm not going to sway you, but just remember that the national debt is going to have to be paid somehow. That means no matter who's elected, congress will have to raise taxes. Even if they got rid of every social service there is, it wouldn't be enough to pay off the massive debt this administration has racked up.

  • Actually troops need to be withdrawn from Iraq and sent to Afghanistan where they are actually needed. It's not "popular news" so we don't really hear about how bad it has gotten.

  • If you google it you can find McCain's tax plans and Obama's right beside one another so you can compare and contrast. I think it was on one of the news sites. Possibly CNN, or MSNBC

  • Currently the democrats are proposing another stimulus/bailout that could cause some major problems. The biggest problem is that it suggests we cut military spending by 25%. Which is really dangerous at this time considering we are fighting two wars. Our military budget is already tight at best, and cutting it further at this point would only put our service men and women in jeopardy.

    Now as for who to vote for...what are the three issues that matter most to you? Is it just taxes? Because while Obama promises tax cuts to some of the middle class (this will lead to less back at refund time), McCain plans to keep things closer to what they are now (so that your refund is still just as large). It really evens itself out. And either candidate is going to have revise their plan in office with our current economic situation.

    Like she said it evens itself out in the end.. bc either you want to pay the taxes every month and get the refund, or you want to keep your money each mo. If you keep your money at least you don't have to wait around for a refund to pay bills with. You have that extra bit each mo.

  • Because while Obama promises tax cuts to some of the middle class ...


    he isn't promising cutting taxes for them, he is not supposedly going to raise them ... You should have listened better on the debate. And with all the things he wants to do, if he can, he will have to raise taxes way more then McCain.

  • If you want government in all walks of your life vote Obama. If you think a candidate can do what he says without first proving it then vote obama.

    If you believe in free trade and free will, if you believe in making your own way and helping others thru churches and charities, if you believe in saying no to politicians who are in it for their career and not America vote McCain. He's only planning on getting us back on track in the next four years, he's not looking at this as a career move.

  • Obama will get us out of Iraq where the people have never once attacked us. The PNAC wanted to go into Iraq in the Clinton administration with a letter they sent. PNAC is made up in the Bush cabinet- check encyclopedia

    If you like war-VOTE McCain
    If you don't like war-VOTE Obama

    McCain has threaten Iran and Russia and is known for his temper. Obama speaks peace.
