I am afraid. I am terribly afraid that America stands on the brink of turning over the reins of government to the most liberal senator in recent times and, with a Democrat Congress, we are in terrible danger of his getting his way on all of his proposals, no matter how far out. Extreme liberalism is only a half-step... More

1: McCain intends to continue on with Bush's economic plans. Last November, my tuition fund was at 40,000 dollars, it is now down to 1,700 dollars, and yet Bush says we are not in a recession. My mother lost 180,000 dollars by the way. This will be the first time in 30 years that she has not voted republican... More

NEITHER do the rest of us. Originally, he was the furthest to the left of any of the Senators and criticized Hillary, McCain and Bush. However, in an effort to secure more votes he began moving to the middle and wearing a flag pin. Now he has adopted Hillary's, McCain's and Bush's policies. However, he is a liar... More

first off you have to look at the key issues obama stands for. 1) he doesnt take special interest money, lobbiest money, or bundleing money. He wants to end special interest influence over our society (which have crippled our society) that in itself gets my vote
Answered By: Thomas L - 7/5/2008
He stands for change, putting this country back together again, he stands for all Americans, not just the rich, he stands for peace which is why he wants to talk with our enemies and more imprtant than anything he is offering us hope. Bush pretty much took that away from us a long time ago.
