  • I think because some just don't care. They know about the negative and they are OK with it.

  • It's called propaganda on both sides. It's when people being up OBVIOUSLY FAKE facts that it's just ridiculous. Examples? Saying he's Muslim. Saying he's the Anti-Christ. Saying he wasn't born in America. Shit like that is pointless and NOT TRUE. Yet people still bring stuff like that up.

    There's nothing wrong with saying negative things about the candidates, both have negative things about them. But saying things that just aren't true...well that's just wrong.

    1. ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc.

    People who spread Propaganda are liars and spread rumors! Most of the Obama supporters know this! McCain uses Propaganda! Where I really have yet to see it (propaganda)being used by the Obama Campaign!

  • Because people want to believe in something they want to believe he is the messiah, unfortunately we are in to big of a shit hole for just words and ideas to pull us out of. You can't fault America for wanting to believe in him, if you wanted his kindof change ya should've voted for Hillary at least we'd all be debating the real issues and the real track records.

    This is not Propaganda--it is redistribution of wealth in Obama's own words--but yet, I know I will be called racist, stupid, radical--as I have in the past for posting facts about Obama.

  • Anon 12:44 - The "redistribution of wealth" argument by the McCain campaign plays to the worst in people. The message the GOP candidate is sending is this: it is okay to be selfish and unwilling to help those who are less fortunate. It says you deserve that plasma TV, the whirlpool tub, the ostentatius house to impress the neighbors... It removes any civic responsibility for a functional and prosperous society from those who are best able to help create such a society. McCain wants to go back to the early 1900s, when workers were freely exploited and huge fortunes were made for certain families with names we would still recognize. In short, McCain encourages everyone to scramble for every shred of the pie that they can get, and not share it with anyone. Are these the kind of values we want to teach our children? I'm surprised he and Palin can live with themselves!
