I'm not voting Obama

Instability in Iraq is good for the U.S. and pulling the troops out is our best option.

Bigger government, it's always the right thing. We need to spend more on education, think of the children!

What's wrong with the option regarding education? We (and I speak collectively here, as a citizen of a developed country) definitely do need better education systems if we are to reverse the degeneration of society.

I do agree that voting for somebody because they're black (or white) is ridiculous. Skin colour should have no bearing on politics.
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

You listed several fallacies frequently promoted by Fox News.  Do you honestly think that a 72 year-old man with a history of temper problems and instability and a MILF nutcase are a better choice for the country?  What do you have against Obama, anyway?

Because he wants to fight it out in Iraq, of course.

  • Obama is raising taxes on the top 5% of the country.  If this happens to include you (something I doubt), well, my sympathy is limited.  You've had eight fat years already.
  • Universal healthcare will not bankrupt us, we'll be spending less money on things like Iraq.
  • Obama will finally bring Iraq to a close.  Before you start bitching about what will happen if we start withdrawing, let me remind you that it was the Republicans who were making predictions about WMDs being found in Iraq and the populace welcoming us.  Why should they be any more right about us exiting than us entering?

And of course:

  • Sarah Palin is not only stupid, she's crooked.

Your turn.  What's so great about McCain?

Businesses are slowing down. Many large employers are in hiring freezes, and some are downsizing.

Yes, Obama plans to only increase taxes on the rich and business, but that also means you are more likely to be laid off in the current economic crisis. Congrats, you just got promoted to 0% tax! CHANGE!!!

Now, I'm just making this suggestion, you decide for yourself, but here are the facts:


Fact 1: Barack Hussein Obama's father is dead.

Fact 2: Barack Hussein Obama's mother is dead.

Fact 3: Both of them died before they were able to make a statement on Barack Hussein's childhood. Is this intentional?

Fact 4: Not much is known about Barack Hussein's childhood. For all we know, he could've been a quiet kid who kept to himself, with an abusive homelife

Fact 5: Barack Hussein's grandmother is DYING.....or is she? Perhaps after a heated argument on the phone, Barack Hussein's grandmother threatened to go to the presses with the TRUTH surrounding the death of Mr and Mrs Hussein

Fact 6: Barack Hussein SUSPENDED HIS CAMPAIGN to "visit" his grandmother. Will she turn up dead afterwards???

Fact 7: There was once a leader who had a terrible childhood, whose parents had no influence in his election, but still managed to unite millions of people to one cause: the elimination of a group of people. A group of people that he blamed for all the problems in his country. Can you guess who this man is? No, it's not just Barack Hussein Obama. It's Adolf Hitler. To Hitler, it was the Jews. To Barack Hussein, it's the Republican party, and all conservative ideals.

Fact 8: Barack Hussein Obama may very well be the reincarmation of Hitler.
