It's neck-and-neck in race for Florida's votes

The race for the White House is basically tied in Florida, a new CNN/ORC International poll shows.

Likely voters questioned in the key battleground state came out for Mitt Romney 49% to 48% for President Obama, but that's well within the poll's margin of error.

Here's the full analysis from CNN's Political Ticker and don't forget there's the final presidential debate on Monday.

    ...and we apply this same notion to our very own children. "If you do that ONE MORE TIME I will punish you" we tell our child who just got caught stealing...for the 3rd time, after being caught twice and sent to his room to play video games as punishment.
    Threats of punishment fall on deaf ears of even children.
    However, there is a way out of this mess. Jesus and his early followers called it "The Way"...a way of life...a way out of this mess. (the human condition, we are all crooked and all "got it coming" aka what goes around comes around, kharma, and you reap what you plant, not counting abortion)

    I guess that I could have placed a question mark after the word 'abortion'. (shrug)
    When it comes to recovering from your own imperfection's, 'I Can't' is actually "I won't. I refuse to change my ways. I like it like that."

    ...unless abortists are merely harvsters of fetus. Who are they harvesting them for? The straight, or for the crooked?

    And isn't the goal perfection? Do not all human endeavors pursue perfection?
    I cringed and the skin crawled on the back of my neck the first time I saw a perfect 10 awarded by an olympic judge. That's not perfect! A man with a perfect body could do a hundred of those with his eyes closed.
    Yet, here we* are in pursuit of, not perfection, but rather in pursuit of Heaven. Behind the scenes we are running from Hell, extorted into going someone else's way. Not The Way of Jesus Christ.
    Some people from India love Jesus yet they despise American christians for not living as Jesus lived, ya know.

    It's so onvious, that when a woman walks-out on to that very same stage in front of potentially millions of people, it's her opportunity to show the world how sorry she is. Just being sorry is not enough! she knows, because it's a staged production. Actors must say their canned (scripted) lines out loud or the audience simply has no way of knowing if she's sorry or not.

    "extorted into going someone else's way. Not The Way of Jesus Christ."
    Yes, I would say this goes to the *crust* of the majority following the voice of man rather than God.
    The face of it all is accepted rather than the actions
    Actions speaking louder than words.
    I do have a tibit of info that I'd like to post so rather than ruining your thread, I'll go ahead and post it on another political blog.
    Well laid out posts 🙂

    You who judges others, speaks in the prophet name, who has no face and hides in his own shadow , walks the darkness alone, without hope, son of no one, which light will not go to him, shell be blessed where he is, no where and with no one.
