    Obviously I won't be voting, but I'm nervous about Obama for reasons I can't entirely explain. So if I was voting, it would have to be McCain, even though I'm normally a slightly left-leaning person.

    McCain, because I think he is the only one qualified to be Commander and Chief.

    What is with 6 people voting Obama while still adhering to a Christian world view.... Do these people not understand liberal domestic/educational policies? Or would they rather have their mess of pottage no matter what the exchange?

    Seriously, we know the democrats on this board are unable to interact with material that we bring up... They can reply with quips, but because they don't share the world view that liberalism is based off of, they are very limited in their critiques of conservatism.. All it consists of is, "Bush is bad! We are a fascist nation", etc..

    They don't understand liberal domestic policy, and if they do, and are still voting for liberals, than they are evil. sb777, the anti-discriminatory law that was passed in California, should be an indicator of liberal domestic policies. But here are people on this board, with a well defined Christian world view available to them through the Word, and are voting for a democratic president who will appoint more liberal judges. All because they want their money.

    This is sickening. The educational agenda of liberals is so dangerous for us Christians. They have voted against school choice many times. In CA, liberal judges have ruled that public universities can deny admission to Christian students who went to otherwise good schools, except that they did not teach evolution. Yet you want to continue to support these domestic policies?

    If the liberal education system can succeed in America, like it has in Germany, they will produce a society of young people having world views opposite their parents. It's already happening. Kids here in the US have been told that homosexuality is genetically determined, that gender roles are out dated and oppressive toward women, that science has more explanatory power than religion and is therefore more relevant, and so much more... But this is nothing yet.

    We still have school choice, and we still have a lot of semi-conservative public schools. This won't be for long.

    WHY do you people think that domestic policies have no effect on Christianity? What happened in Germany? What is happening in France? Why is atheism growing so fast? It's not because science is offering better answers than it has in the past, so less 'gaps' in our knowledge by which we can explain away with God, it's because kids are coming out of school with a scientific world view, and if not a scientific world view, a post modern world view.

    then WHY will you vote for obama? Because you bought into the 5th grade level anti-Bush rhetoric? Because you want to wear the title of non-conformist and distance yourself from us Christian 'traditionalists'?

    In 20 years, when I have to send my kids to public schools and have them indoctrinated with a scientific world view(which leads to atheism because it disallows metaphysics), I will thank BB, KenH, and the other people who are voting for Obama.

    And btw, as has been shown, don't assert that the republican party shares the same educational and domestic policies as the democrats. I understand that would ease your conscience, but it's not true. Thanks to people on here who have done the work in showing you that.

    Scary, we have a society controlled by the media. No one in the election brought up the radical different policies of liberals and conservatives on domestic issues. If they would have, I feel that more Christians would have voted for McCain. If he would have spoken of the different domestic policies, not of Barack, but of liberals and conservatives in general...

    Ok, my rant is done.. But it's very insulting to see 6 people here on a Baptist message board voting for Obama. Thanks for selling out this country to liberals who want to make us into a secular Europe..

    BTW - Voted for McCain this morning. Lots of lines. Lots of enthusiastic black people who are convinced Obama is a messiah.

    Your Party Is Immoral Watch Video "the Last Republican"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40661bZxVXU

    SO REALLY YOUR SELF RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT LOOK IN THE MIRROR WHO IS REALLY EVIL, THIS GUY I HOPE IS THE LAST REPUBLICAN.

    wake up and quit the kool aid you are selling evil yourself with McCain a serial adulterer with his wife Cindy who is a saint, Obama did the right thing by not going after him on it but it is so obvious in the video of someone who actually works for McCain, I will say it again from someone who actually works for McCain. For goodness sakes open your ears.

    and buster leave KenH out of this and take responsibility for yourself that is weak and petty to blame others.

    Christian Youth, though I share much of your sentiment against Obama, don't think that McCain is somehow much better.

    They are both socialists. It is just a matter of degrees.

    For the record, I voted from 3 parties.

    Hey I didn't mean this to be a heated debate, just a straw poll of who the majority of people on this site are voting for - have to say its no surprise to see McCain in front but it is both surprising and pleasing to see a few votes for minor candidates.

    I just came from voting. I voted McCain. I had considered voting for Baldwin, but didn't. My wife and I have always been one-issue voters up until the last few years. I had three reasons for voting for McCain or, more correctly, for voting against Obama.

    1. We are pro-life. We have always been pro-life. I believe that anyone who would deny lifesaving measures to an infant born alive following a botched abortion is, at best, despicable and at worst, downright evil.

    2. We are against same-sex marriage. This sham of an unholy matrimony goes against what is written in the Bible. If I interpret his policy correctly, Mr. Obama does not even want the individual states to decide this issue.

    3. This is a new entry. I oppose the 'Fairness Doctrine.' In addition to being against free market enterprise, who can say where it will end? Only political stations? Or might it ever include religious broadcasters as well?

    Just my 2 mite's worth.

    I'm Just glad that this election season is finally coming to an end. I voted for Baldwin because he identifies the closest to Christian concerns.Will Baldwin win? Probably not but anything else would have been a comprimise.
