    In the final analysis its us the voters who matter not the candidate. Go with your conscience with an eye on where we want this country headed.

    @banasy. I beg to differ. All of the candidates who have a realistic chance of winning believe and have taught that American citizens who don't get with God's program end-up burning in a place called "hell" forever. (crazy as that sounds) We really have no choice. Our next leader will in fact be a man led by the wolf god.

      And that is based on your belief.
      And that's fine.

      I stand by what I said:
      Obama can't get anything passed *now*.
      There is no one candidate that will satisft everybody.
      Therefore, vote what one's conscience dictates.

      And let everyone else do the same.

    It appears to me that politics is the top subject here today. So be it.

    Dan Quayle, Newt Gingrich and Bill Clinton were traveling together in a car in the mid-west. Suddenly a tornado appears and lifts their car into the air. When the car finally comes back down, they realize that they are in the land of OZ. Realizing this, Dan Quayle says, "While wer're here, I think I'll ask the wizard for a brain." Newt Gingrich says, "I'm going to ask the wizard for a heart". Bill Clinto says, "Where's Dorothy ?

    Personally I want to see this country moving in the direction we are moving now. The right direction. Under President Obama, even without the help of congress, things are steadily improving. The stock market is way up, jobs are being added every month, unemployment is down, America is getting respect back. To stop this momentum now by changing the leader makes no sense. At least we have a leader now who actually cares about we the people.

    Ya seen one wolf godder, ya seen 'em all. Wolf god. Makers of fine products such as Rapture and 'Burn in hell you heathens'. Available out of the mouths of preachers and politicians the world over.

    All I said was wolf god. Don't red riding hood now. C'mon. What do you folks who believe in freedom think of the hellfire doctrine? Where everyone who doesn't behave burns in hell forever?
    The wolf god isn't the true God! He's just the god that's been portrayed to you by your leaders who use God for war and for vote. God wouldn't allow us to be burned alive forever anymore than you would torch your puppy for pooping on the rug too many times. Get a clue you helffire'ers. The gigs up.

      @wolf god: i believe in freedom. that allows me to ignore the drivel that comes out of the mouths of extremists. they are free to believe what they want, as i am free to ridicule them. as that would be hurtful, and i really intend to hurt no one, i choose to keep my mouth shut.

      you are not going to change anyone's mind. arguing with beliefs (religion, racism, etc) is beating ones head against a brick wall.

      when they attack me personally, or slam victims in the name of their god, i can rise to defend. but just casual conversation? it goes nowhere..

      you are certainly free to post what you will, but don't try to drag me in with you..

    @ leeintulsa

    Very well said. That is wha'ts so great about this country. Everyone is ent itled to believe as they will. Just because a person has a strong opinion on a subject, it is still just that, an opinion. You have no say in what I want to believe. I too become irreverant from time to time, but it is not focused on any specific person. I just call it, "comedy relief". And I'm sure many people have an opinion about that also.

    @ bobcat
    President Obama has tried to go with his good intent for this country against tremendous odds. standing up against an opposition dead set on getting him unseated and the country's interests be damned. Sleazy politicking dragging his race, faith & origin into question.
    His election had won us some of the prestige, dignity & credibility that we lost during the Bush-Cheney era of infamy
    If re-elected perhaps he would be more empowered to carry out his stated agenda.

      @ saywhat

      This is a very late response.

      I agree, President Obama has overcome all the odds. He is a man of integrity and the world is seeing the US with a leader who is trying to rebuild relationships. I am so proud how he weighs everything out and doesn't rush into conflict. That something we haven't seen in a long time.
      When he gets reelected, if we are able to give him a congress that will work with him, I see nothing but good days ahead. Let's hope for the best in November.
