    Let me explain why I am not voting for Obama.

    I'm not voting for Obama because:

    1. he supports the slaughter of unborn babies,
    2. because of his view of the role of government,
    3. because he is one of the most liberal Senators we have.
    When it comes to political office, I don't care about his religion. And I certainly don't care what religion his parents were or what they thought he was as a child. His religion can only be important in the context of his adult life. Because that is what he has control over.

    I also don't care about his race. Race is a non-issue.

    The only thing I care about are the issues because, if and when he gets in the White House, the issues are the only things that will matter.

    These are the same reasons I will not vote for Hillary Clinton.

    In addition to above -

    He is inexperienced
    He has no policy except some kind of promise of "change"

    I do care about the candidates religion as it effects their world view, which is an important factor in considering someone for President. Their world view tells us how they see things and gives insight into how they might handle their responsibilities. Their religious affiliation is not the only thing to effect this but it is a major factor in it. Therefore it is of the utmost importance. Regardless of what anyone says everyone has a religion and it always effects their decisions.

    Nothing to do with race, everything to do with his stand on issues! Much too liberal.

    Take out what Martin said about Religion and take what C4k added then insert RevMitchell's wisdom regarding religion then that verily sums up my view.

    I wholeheartedly agree. A person's religion will determine his politics. Example: Why is Joe Leiberman the only Democrat who supports Bush's efforts in Iraq? Because he is a Jew. Why does Peter Stark want to eliminate God from all public discourse? Because he is an atheist. We are naive to think that we can separate religious thought from political thought. Obama's religion of Black Liberation Theology will play a big part in his decision making process.

    To me, his close friends & associates are an issue. It does not seem he is a good judge of character.

    And all the reasons Martin & C4K listed. His religion means nothing to me, having a Muslim wouldn't be any worse than having an atheist.

    Because Hillary got the nod... That's be the only reason I don't vote for him.

    By the way, I am not voting democratic as much as I am voting against McCain and continuation of current policy/direction.

    Obama has made RACE an issue for me!

    I'm going to be brutally honest. Too many white folks are afraid to say what I am about to say. So here it is: Obama will not get my vote because he is black, and his kind of black scares me.

    No I am not a racist...it's just that Obama happens to be black and he has caused all the "red flags" of life to shimmy up the warning flag pole in my neck. And here's the kicker: If Obama were white, I'd still not vote for him, not because he is white, but, because he has caused at least a dozen red flags to shimmy up the warning flag pole in back of my neck and wave like crazy in the windstorms of this election year!

    I'm not a racist however, and I say this because I could and would vote for a long list of black folks. My decision to not support Obama is clearly due to his views, and his lack of real life experience in this crazy world, and because he seems to be hiding something.

    Most white folks skirt the issue when asked if his color enters into their decision to vote for or against him. I am not afraid to say that given his views, lack of experience, the mess this world is in, as well as his color are reasons I will not vote for him.

    Shalom,

    Pastor Paul :type:

    Great post! I would vote for Alan Keyes. Obama is a radical racist of the worst kind. People that defend his "religion" would be the same ones to condemn his religion if he were white and a white supremist. People who defend his roots, education, and upbringing, would be the first to condemn him if he were white and raised by skinheads or a family of the KKK.

    I care about the candidate's religion. I want a qualified Christian leader in the office of President. That is an issue.

    I care about the candidate's race. I don't want a racist - of any race - in the office of President. That is an issue.

    Wow, only one poster had a demeaning post, I wonder who it was? :laugh:

    I can respect the reasons most of the posters here will not vote for Obama.

    It is refreshing to see something about Obama that is material and not just hyperbole.

    I'm not voting for Obama for the same reasons I'm not voting for McCain or Clinton. They all want to take my property by coercion, intimidation and/or force and give it to others. They all have international interests on their minds over and above the American people's interests and general welfare.

    None of them will even admit the federal reserve is the cause of most of our financial troubles or that we're over taxed and over regulated. None of them will fess up to what they are doing behind the scenes and closed doors. If and when elected they will serve and protect the warfare welfare state's interests while reaching ever deeper into our pockets to pay for it all.

    In light of that imho they have proven themselves dishonest and unfit to lead this nation.

    In what specific situation did you discover that McCain wants this?


    I agree
