Thread: McCain - Palin, your true feelings

  1. I voted for Obama. As in past tense I vote absentee. I feel he is the only candidate who addresses the issues I am facing rising unemployment rising food and housing costs an out of control wallstreet. The corporate scalping of the American taxpayers due to greed. The outsourcing of American jobs by corporations who hide their assets in foreign banks then want the protection that living in this country has to offer. Hell yeah I voted for Obama this country has been run into the ground by the Republican party. Another thing to consider is that if you vote for McCain you will be putting his VP in office as he will never live to the end of his term he looks like hell. Do you really want Caribou Barbie running things? You betcha by golly!

    I would suggest LeavingMass read the post entitled Who Am I? 143 days as a junior senator from Ilinois is NOT qualification for the office of POTUS. You can't even become a manager at McDeath Burger in 143 days.

    I can get a parrot to talk about the same things Obama talks about. Would you vote for a bird that sits on a perch and jabbers nonsense?

    I've met McCain personally; he's not a lithe gymnast or anything, but he has a *very* firm handshake. He moves around ably enough, much more so than some middle age people I know. I think he'll probably live to be 112 or something and surprise us all.

    unless one considers increasing entitlements, making the welfare system larger, a socialist platform taking over a free-market; I dont see how nobama can solve anything.this last effort on the hill to give 700 B to wall street was a clear and definate attempt by the government to get excessive control over a free market. harken back to I thnk it was Maxine Waters ? who made the statement that she wanted the government to take over the oil companies....communism anyone? some people have made a comparison to Carter in how nobama makes them feel, like hope after a storm.......under Carter those who had got more and those with little ended up with less. some of the highest interest rates we had ever seen worked in favor of people wiht money and against those who had little.
    as for McCain dying in office........if genetics has anything to do with it, looking at his mother, he will make it well past his first term and even if he didnt, I would be fine with Palin taking over, I guess thats just the difference in a conservative and a liberal and their view of the world.

    Excuse you .....?

    Did I point out anyone specific and say they are the 1 issue voter ?

    But hey, if I hit a nerve, so be it


    Watch and read the news, watch the polls

    Besides 1 issue voters, we have people voting based on gender ( women for women ), race ( blacks for black ) etc ... many voting not on the broad picture and issues, but just on one principle.

    Because this is a 2A issue forum, I highlighted the topic about that issue.

  7. If you like guns and ammo for hunting or fun YOU are stupid if you vote for obama!!!!!!!That is the issue that makes all the others enforceable.

    Yes, I have some concerns about the MCain/Palin ticket, but they are fairly minor. First of all, I didn't want McCain, I wanted Fred Thompson. Well, he's out. So MCain is the next best choice. He is too centrist for my taste, but that's me.

    Regarding Palin, yes she is a phenomenon. She represents the New Republican Party: young, eager, and intelligent folks who happen to be Type A personalities. Think Jindal and the governor of Virginia. Her interviews have been somewhat weak, but don't forget she is in the glare of the brightest lights possible which probably makes her uncomfortable. In time, I think she will do just fine. In my opinion, she has more executive experience than Biden does. Notice how I am comparing her to Biden, not Obama. I just wish the Democrats would harping about how she is not ready to President. As far as I am concerned, Biden should be running for President, not Obama.

    The Republican Party has a long history of thinking positively of the USA, think Reagan. Obama is sooo negative it is unbelievable. Anyone who votes for Obama just because he is black oughta be booted from the US. That is racism pure and simple.

    And that's the truth from me....

  9. There are some of us here who are definitely one issue voters. I am not. I believe the financial world is in much worse shape than anyone realizes. If what I believe comes true the depression of the 1930s will seem like a small potatoes. I did not live through that period but my parents did. One of the things they both agree on was that had it not been for FDR we would have had a much more difficult time of it. He instituted many radical social policies we now take for granted in fact had they not dismantled the Glass Steagall act we would not be in the financial mess we are now.

    Now I said that to say this the one candidate addressing the social and economic issues we are already in and which will get worse in the near future is Obama. He is the only one who seems to have a grasp of the severity of the situation. Do I agree with everything he says no. I have plenty of reservations but I have lost faith in McCain. He has flipped on everything he believed in 4 years ago. I think that in order to get the parties nomination he has decided to say and do anything no matter what it costs him. I cannot believe one word that comes out of his mouth these days because he has reversed himself so many times.

    The Democratic party has a long history of thinking positively of the USA, think FDR or Kennedy. McCain is so arrogant it is disgusting. Anyone who votes for McCain just because he is white should buy a sheet and go burn a cross.

    I disagree that Obama has a grasp on the severity of the situation. Obama was the one that insisted on a debate rather than head back to DC to sort out the economic crisis. Obama is a good speaker, he's able to convince a large audience of "his position" so that the audience walks away thinking what HE wants them to think. I put him in the category of a used car salesman.

    You cannot say that McCain has flipped on "everything he believed in". This statement falls into the "always" and "never" category. Two words that you should use with extreme caution. If you look hard enough, I'm sure you'll find something that he did "right".

    FDR was a good President. As for Kennedy, I don't care for the guy. I'm glad that he wasn't longer than he was. I hate to see what would have happened if he lived out his term in office. Ted Kennedy is very similar to his brother JFK. Not something that I would have wanted.

    You think that McCain is arrogant? Did you miss that "smirk" on Obama's face after every statement during the Presidential debate? If anyone is arrogant, it would be Obama. He's probably thinking "I've got you all fooled. When King Obama takes office, I'll show you!"

    There are many issues that cause me to not like Obama for President. On the other hand, there are many issues that cause me to dislike McCain as well. There are MANY MORE issues against Obama, therefore I'll probably be voting for McCain. I don't like having to choose the President this way, but my rights and freedoms are a lot more important to me to not vote for the candidate that I feel would be most capable of running our country. If I have my firearms and ammunition, I'll be able to protect myself if TSHTF and crime skyrockets because everyone's out of money. OTOH, if Obama takes my guns, how will I defend myself and what I have against the many folks who will be coming to take it from me?

    Something to think about.

    Exclamation Millions of Veterans are very worried about 2009.

    Yes this is a pro-gun web-site, and I have lost faith in BOTH candidates, if there were a good 3rd who stood a chance at winning I would vote for them, so this year my ballot goes into the shredder. I dislike the agendas of BOTH and there are a LOT of other issues that runs my world than guns even on a site that links guns with McCain and chaos with Obama. God only knows in my record of posting I have railed against both and made cyber-enemies of patrons I have a lot of respect for, a no-win deal.
    As a disabled Vet checking out and probably dead by age 60 I need the V.A. like you need food & water to live. I have to think about my failing health, and I do not like what this link tells me, it is facts that can be verified by any non-partisan web-site you care to check, by HR # and vote/date, McCain is a Veteran but I do not condone or even understand why every vote that could have helped Vets out he has voted against for years, please verify his voting record out B 4 U flame me out. I am not going to post to this thread again with any retort. I simply leave you with this link and wonder if a year from now if I'll still own my guns but won't have any money for ammo, a place to live a car or probably be dead of end-stage liver failure if a President McCain keeps tracking promises to dismantle the only health-care institution that keeps me alive, a much more important factor in what years I have left than guns, which won't pay for my medical bills or those of the millions of other disabled Vets who are barely hanging on right now.
    McCain Misstates Record on Veterans Issues : Veterans Today - U.S. Military Veterans VA Home Loans, Vet Jobs, VA Benefits, VA Hospitals, VA Administration
    It comes from an online source called 'Veterans Today' that provides non-partisan reports on issues that effect Veterans, and it is probably the most reliable portal on the internet if you want cold hard facts not chest-pounding rants. This link has these words stamped on the bottom of every article it publishes online: VeteransToday.com believes in an open discussion and seeks views from all sides.
    Please if you feel like ripping me up after reading this then do it off forum in private e-mail.
    I respect your right to vote for who you want.
    Please try to understand my desire to squeeze a few more years into my life.
    I want to keep my gun and you to keep yours too, but I won't need a gun when I'm dead, without the V.A. that day isn't that far off.
    Thanks,

    Canis-Lupus
