    He is in support of Abortion.

    He supports ending life for the elderly.

    And stated this..

    I opposed the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. It should be repealed and I will vote for its repeal on the Senate floor. I will also oppose any proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban gays and lesbians from marrying. Barack Obama

    I am wondering how anyone with basic a basic christian belief can vote for obama.

    He has only been in the senate a short time and is very socialist in nature..

    represents the transitional stage between capitalism and communism.[3][4]


    Socialism refers to a broad set of economic theories of social organization advocating social or collective ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods, and the creation of an egalitarian society where labor is the main source of wealth.[1][2] Modern socialism originated in the late nineteenth-century working class political movement. Karl Marx posited that socialism would be achieved via class struggle and a proletarian revolution which represents the transitional stage between capitalism and communism.[3][4]

    So I don't believe he is a good choice..

    Welcome to Baptist Board.

    I think you will find very few people here that are going to vote for Obama. The bigger debate is between McCain and a conservative third party. McCain is way too liberal for me.

    Again, welcome, and think you will find the threads interesting with a whole range of ideas. Don't be afraid to speak your mind.

    Both McCain and Obama are bad news for the United States. Both represent more of the same. I'm debating whether I should hold my nose and vote for the lesser (and there's not much lesser) of the two evils or simply leave the POTUS blank or vote for a third party candidate.

    The lesser of two evils is still evil

    This issue is like Charlie Brown and the football. Every election, the Republican candidate says the words against abortion that the Christian right wants to hear and they jump on the bandwagon denouncing the other candidate as a baby murderer. It happened with Reagan, George HW Bush, and george W Bush. Then, like Lucy pulling away the football at the last minute, after election the Republican doesn't do anything about. Aren't you beginning to catch on to this scam?

    Both George McCain and Sarah have stated that they are Federalists and believe that the power to control abortion should be left up to the states. What does that mean will get done at the national level? Nothing.

    You're voting for the candidate who says the right words and then turns around and says (quietly) that they're really not going to do anything. I'm voting for a candidate who promises to end an unjust war which has killed tens and hundreds of thousands of human beings. I believe he will do that. I'm voting for action on the issue of Sanctity of Life, not talk.

    He has promised to expand the war into Pakistan.

    Not that I expect you to address facts with your own words.

    Yes, we are going to get what we deserve. Obama. We are in this situation because of the inept and liberal leadership of George Bush. This is the second President in my life time to make a mess of this nation from Texas. Please leave your politicians there.

    Yes, Obama is going to be the messiah, the savior of the United States. He's going to fix the economy. He's going to make us great in the world once again. Dream on planet man.

    Can you read English? I have been arguing against both from day one. The fact you support McCain tells me you are quite liberal.

    Yes, and you are also the one that gives a pass to the Republicans on abortion.

    Folks can say what they want about President Bush, but I am thankful that I have not been blown up by some terrorists, AND no one has been blown up by terrorist since 9-11. Bush has made this country a mess, really?

    Who was president when these cowards were coming into our country and planning the attack?

    Who was too busy with interns to ever take action against the terrorist that may have prevented the attack? Or at the very least made our borders more secure

    I am not a dyed in the wool GOP person, but look at the facts,

    The economy is in toilet and and folks are losing their homes, clinton signed the first bill of deregulation that started all of this, not President Bush.

    Jobs going to other countries? clinton signed NAFTA, not President Bush.

    National debt at all time high, we are fighting two wars at one time. Never before has this been done so sure the price tag is huge.

    Has President Bush made mistakes SURE, he has. A LOT of them. HOWEVER, name one President that has had as much to deal with as he has. You can’t because there is not one.

    The enemies of this country WANT obama to be elected because they are afraid of Sen. McCain. Sen. McCain knows how to deal with enemies, yet obama has trouble remembering who the enemies are.

    I know the President is ultimately “responsible” for every thing that goes on during his time in office. However, remember, he cannot pass gas much less laws with out house and senate approval. He does not carry all the blame.

    Oh and by the way before you trash Texas and its politicians, what has KY done for us lately?

    Remember all the oil is in Texas but the dipsticks are in Washington.

    Well, after George Bush and Lyndon Baines Johnson, who I remember quite vividly, I would say any state, Kentucky or Texas, would do the nation a favor by keeping their politicians of that caliber at home. As far as what has Kentucky done lately, the only one I can think of at present in a leadership role is Mitch McConnell, one of our Senators, who is Senate minority leader.

    Wrong, I don't support McCain. If I do vote for him, it will be while I hold my nose. But, you can rest assured that I will not vote for Obama who is, by far, the worse of the two evils.

    No I do not make unfounded accusations. But that has nothing to do with my post.
