Do you support Senator Barack Obama? Why or why not?
I believe that Barack is the only candidate who can unite our country and fix the broken system in Washington. He has proven that he will work with both parties to get things done. Another thing is that he does not take money from lobbyists or special interests groups as a lot of other candidates do. This is important because It allows Barack to serve he will of the people when he is elected, not the will of the large coporations and special interest groups. He was against the war in Iraq from the start, which shows excellent judgement and personal commitment to saying what he believes is right, not just what is popular. I am volunteering for the Obama campaign but I am open to hearing others opinions, please just explain your answer!!

Baracka Hussein Obama,Jr. is a liar, dangerously inexperienced, and needs to have remedial training in Government 101. I would never vote for any candidate who refuses to honor the American flag. Hussein has disgraced the American flag on two separate public occasions. Hussein Obama does accept money from lobbyists... More

No, I do not. Barrack Obama would NOT unite the country. As a Conservative, I can tell you that I oppose many of Obama's views on the issues and I would not feel united.

Personally, no I don't support Barack Obama. He doesn't stand strong enough on following the Constitution. I can't vote for someone that doesn't truly follow what our Founding Fathers set in line as guidelines to run our country with.

No, his voting record is in conflict with what he advocates in his speeches. He is running on a platform of being the "anti-establishment" candidate, yet he accepts thousands from lobbyists, corporations and special interest groups. He spoke out against the Patriot Act, then voted in favor of reauthorizing it. He... More

NOT! Obama has not proven anything. He lacks enough experience for me to assess whether I can trust him or not. Contrary to what you say or he says, he does take money from lobbyists. http://www.whitehouseforsale.org/candidate.cfm?CandidateID=C0009

While I find Obama to be a nice enough person & has some good ideas about moving the country forward; he will not be elected, should he get the nomination. The reason being that he is black & no matter how many say they support him, when push comes to shove, in the voting booth, white people will not vote for him... More

Yes. Although I am not sure who I am going to vote for yet, I think Obama would make an excellent president. He is extremely intelligent (yet practical), open to new ideas, and LISTENS and TAKES INTO ACCOUNT the merits of what people with viewpoints that differ from his have to say.. And, as the person who asked the... More
