 After reading some of the posts on here. women who don't seem to understand the economy and just spout sound bites, and can't support their reasons for voting for Obama with facts, I now understand why there have been so many ads for Obama on here, just continual scare tactics. Seems if you put lies in simple terms, some women will believe. It really is sad.

I am, however, heartened by the factual posts by intelligent women who have not been mislead by the Obama loving media that picks and chooses what they report-including the polls that show Obama is ahead. I don't believe that Obama will win. Many people don't reveal who they will vote for, but they will be voting for Romney.

Quoting Seven7ruval11:

I'm very passionate about what is going on in this country, today.   But, I'm not so sure I can participate in this group and REMAIN SANE and kind.  The division is so apparent here, already and the bashing has already started.  I cannot get into the back and forth thing on a subject I feel VERY INFORMED on.

See, I don't trust mainstream media, because they all tell us what they want us to hear, which is generally directed in opposition of their opponent or in support of whom they support.  I have seen and read enough about Obama to just be sick to my stomach.  I am not trying to prove anything to anyone or teach anyone or get anyone on "my" side or try to get them to "see" what I see.  It's just way too draining.

I do know one thing; I don't want to live in our fastly becoming Socialist nation.  I do not want to be a SLAVE to the government.  I do not want to be OWNED by the government; WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT OBAMACARE WILL DO. Once the government has their hands in your healthcare; they have their hands on your life, FROM BIRTH TO DEATH.

In Obama's OWN BOOK, he states he was raised by parents who were anti-colonialists, who were communist sympathizers.  His grandparents were, also.  He was mentored, from A YOUNG AGE by a member of the Communist Party.  THIS WAS NO SECRET AND TOLD BY OBAMA.  Yet, we ignore it?  We have become blind, all at the cost of our freedom, just to get handouts.  This is beyond reasonable.

Obama's handling of this recent terrorist attack is disgusting, TO SAY THE LEAST.  His apologies to a nation who would love to eliminate us, is unacceptable.  It's weak and it presents us as weak.  His arrogance and narcissism has shown what he cares MORE about, than our woes.  His giving 1.5 billion dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood (who are NOT OUR FRIENDS...they support the Taliban and they dispise THE USA) and allowing these terrorist supporters IN THE WHITE HOUSE, THREE TIMES, for meetings; yet not attending any briefings on our own defense, shows me exactly what Obama is.

He IS THE ENEMY.  You don't have to like what I say or agree.  See, I am a Libertarian.  I believe in "to each his own".  I'm not looking for people to agree or disagree with me.  I am okay WITH MY TRUTH and what I know.  I see.  I am no longer blinded by his lies (which he's been caught in SO MANY) and his deceit.  I was happy when he became President that day.  I believed the bullshit he told us. 

HIS ACTIONS SHINE BRIGHTLY.  Anyone who cannot see what he is and what he is TRYING TO DO, DOESN'T WANT TO SEE. 

It has NEVER been about race...and it's a weak argument and an insult to intelligence to even think there is NOTHING wrong with Obama except that people are racist against his skin color.  What a joke.

I'm black.  What would that make me?  A traitor to my people?  I hate what I am or black men or some shit like that? 

I see this debate heading to a lot of bad things and I've said what I have to say and I thank you all....

I will be voting for Romney.  Not only because I think he is a better candidate for the job (and a lot MORE QUALIFIED)...but, because he is TRANSPARENT as Obama IS NOT.  He wouldn't be my first choice; as Ron Paul would be.  He is the ONLY choice to get Obama the hell out!

Even though I know you don't need it, I do hear you and I agree. The reason I say you don't need it, rather because I can tell by how you write that you are oh so sure of all you feel inside. I'm with you, (except I don't happen to be black), and as I said earlier, I've learned a lot of things by researching so much on this whole election thing, (extensive research), I've shared with those who ask, given my opinion, and now I know who I'm voting for, (have for awhile ever since it was just Obama & Romney). Obama is a very bad thing for this country and the fact that he can't accept responsibility for anything, lies about almost everything and, due to his upbringing certainly doesn't have a clue nor does he want to, about this country.

Are you watching? I'd love to get your thoughts on what they say during the next 90 minutes. :)

Quoting SlightlyPerfect:

What do I think of the debates tonight? I think there is a level of corrosiveness in this ideological system, this blisteringly intellectually and morally bankrupt paradigm we've been calling "politics." That which is supposed to help us define the underlying principles that frame and uphold our social system--that which is based on epistemology, metaphysis, and ethics--has turned into a cacophony of nonthinking bullshit. And ontologically and existentially will be the catalyst for our social suicide if we don't get our shit together. And we'll see that in the debates tonight.
