OK, so I know I said I never really talk politics, but since this is such an important election, I suppose I'll voice my opinion.
First of all, I'll go ahead and say that I don't understand why people are swooning over Obama. He's so pro-abortion it's not funny, even partial-birth, which means as the baby is born they stick a needle in the back of its head and suck out its brains (don't say this is painless...let me stick a needle in your neck and suck out your brain and see if it hurts), and he is pro-gay marriage. Obviously, being a Christian, the Word of God says these things are wrong. I am not the one saying they are...these are not just MY views, but God's. What God says goes, and he says these things are wrong, so how can people (Christians, anyway) vote for someone who CLEARLY disobeys and disregards the Word of God, but calls himself a Christian as well?
Also, (and please, do not take this as me saying Obama IS the antiChrist. I just believe maybe all of this is a sign that the AC is on his way.) here are some things the Bible says about the AC:
1) He "shall be different" - Obama is the 1st black man to run for president. Different, right? (again, I am not against him because he is black...I don't have a racist bone in my body)
2) one verse describes him as "Assyrian", or being born in an area near Syria or Iraq...AKA the middle east. Muslim background...
3) The world will view him as a great leader and man of peace. How many times have I heard people say Obama is a peacemaker?
4)He will LIE in order to conceal his true motives. Obama is definitely a liar, and doesn't like to explain himself.
5) He will be a smooth-talker, good with words. Look at Obama...everyone thinks he has it together, when in fact, he doesn't. He's just good with words.
6) He is described as popular and attractive...HELLO!
7) The Bible says the AC will have a partner; he won't be alone. This partner will have seemingly christian credentials and background.
AGAIN, I am not saying Obama is the Anti Christ, but this is a little ironic.
Now, as far as the politics side goes, this was the story that was on wsmv.com this morning about the debate last night.
During Wednesday night's debate, McCain assailed Obama's character and his campaign positions on taxes, abortion and more Wednesday night, hoping to turn their final presidential debate into a launching pad for a political comeback. "You didn't tell the American people the truth," he said.
Unruffled, and ahead in the polls, Obama parried each charge, and leveled a few of his own.
"One hundred percent of your ads have been negative, John," Obama shot back, seated only a few feet away at a round table.
"That's not true," McCain retorted.
"It is true," said Obama, seeking the last word.
McCain is currently running all negative ads, according to a study by the University of Wisconsin-Madison. But he has run a number of positive ads during the campaign.
McCain sought to turn around his fortunes in the final presidential debate with Obama, a forum focused on pocketbook issues and domestic policy Wednesday night.
The 90-minute encounter, at a round table at Hofstra University, was their third debate, and marked the beginning of a 20-day sprint to Election Day.
Obama leads in the national polls and in surveys in many battleground states, an advantage built in the weeks since the nation stumbled into the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression.
McCain played the aggressor early and often.
He brought up Obama's tie to William Ayers, a former member of the violent Weather Underground who later became a university professor in Chicago. Ayers hosted a meet-the-candidate event at his home for Obama when he first ran for office and served on two boards with him.
Said McCain: "We need to know the full extent of that relationship."
Said Obama: "The fact that this has become such an important part of your campaign, Senator McCain, says more about your campaign than it says about me."
Struggling to escape the political drag of an unpopular Republican incumbent, McCain also said, "Sen. Obama, I am not President Bush. ... You wanted to run against President Bush, you should have run four years ago."
Obama responded that McCain has been a vigorous supporter of Bush economic policies and that the country can't afford eight more years of the same thing.
McCain used the opening moments of the debate to accuse Obama of waging class warfare by advocating tax increases designed to "spread the wealth around."
The Democrat denied it, and countered that he favors tax reductions for 95 percent of all Americans.
"Nobody likes taxes," Obama said. "But ultimately we've got to pay for the core investments" necessary for the economy, he said.
"If nobody likes taxes, let's not raise anybody's, OK?" McCain retorted with a laugh.
The two also talked about the $700 billion bailout for the financial industry.
Both said the bailout was not enough.
McCain said Americans are hurting and they're angry. He said they are the innocent victims of greed on Wall Street.
"We've got to put the homeowners first," McCain said.
Obama said what the nation hasn't seen yet is a rescue plan for the middle class. He said the top focus should be on jobs.
Asked about running mates, both candidates said Democrat Sen. Joseph Biden was qualified to become president, although McCain added this qualifier: "in many respects."
McCain passed up a chance to say his own running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was qualified to sit in the Oval Office, though he praised her performance as governor and noted her work on behalf of special needs children. The Palins have a son born earlier this year with Down syndrome.
Obama sidestepped when asked about Palin's qualifications to serve as president, and he, too, praised her advocacy for special needs children.
But he quickly sought to turn the issue to his advantage by noting McCain favors a spending freeze on government programs.
"I do want to just point out that autism, for example, or other special needs will require some additional funding if we're going to get serious in terms of research. ... And if we have an across-the-board spending freeze, we're not going to be able to do it," he said.
Obviously, Obama thinks medical research is more important than us being able to keep our homes and not living on the streets. His priorities are all screwed up. He has no money-management skills. Come on, when you have to decide whether to help people avoid foreclosure on their homes or spend billions of $$$ on medical research, and he chooses RESEARCH!?!?
Yes, McCain does like to attack Obama, and that annoys me, but look what he's up against. But at least McCain is Pro-Life and against gay marriage. If you are looking for a perfect leader, then go elsewhere...this is planet earth, and we are all humans. None of us are perfect, but I at least think I want to vote for the person who doesn't blatantly disregard the Word of GOD and call himself a Christian.
It came to my attention last night that many people who are so in love with Obama are only for him because of the color of his skin. Check out this video:
It is scary! People don't even know who is for what on which issues...or even who their running mate is! Come on people, are you kidding me? Just because he's black? Is this the "change" you wanted?
Putting aside the fact that he doesn't know how many states we have and he supposedly doesn't respect our flag (I am neutral on that subject...he said/she said, and an unfortunate picture), I am voting on the issues. He kills babies and calls it ok. He knows nothing about money. His priorities are terrible. He's only in it for the prestige and power (this was proven when McCain wanted to drop the campaign long enough to go to DC to discuss the economy, and Obama refused. That tells me he could care less if I can pay my rent/mortgage/bills or not...he just wants to win). He's for gay-marriage, and, well, that's just wrong.
Ok, I'm done...for now.
