Countdown To Decision 2008

America is a year away from the upcoming presidential election. What issues will sway your vote?

This is certainly an interesting time for politics in America.  Candidates for president in both political parties are sprinting towards the upcoming caucuses and primaries, which are earlier than ever before.  The issues being debated run the gamut, from homeland security to whether people who aren't U.S. citizens should be able to get a drivers license.  Is there an issue that's a "deal-breaker" for you when choosing a candidate?  Have you decided who you're voting for?

    I feel compelled to put my "two cents" in. Let's get back on track FAST and with an experienced leader. The Clinton dynasty would be the best for our current affairs. Please read up on the truth and you will find the anwer is clear - go with experience and influence and connections.

    Hillary said it today "what part of the '90s did you like - The peace or the prosperity." Let's help her get us back on track. She has a plan that can be implemented. Her opponent is "flashing" but doesn't have the substance or experience it takes. Vote Hillary.

    I know that I will not vote for Clinton. Her husband destroyed this country and he is right behind her. I am not saying that Obama is a better choice. No one will be able to bring the troops home in a year. We will always be in Iraq. Ask anyone who is military. Our main concern needs to be about our country and the price of gas and what is going to be done now about it not ten years from now.

    OUR LOCAL AND STATE SYSTEMS ARE FUELED BY THE FED GOVT. AS LITTLE OR AS BIG AS OUR STATES ARE WE ALL NEED TO VOTE B/C THIS YEAR I FEEL IT WILL MATTER MORE THAN EVER. CLINTON IS A GOOD WOMAN, A TEACHER AND CARES FOR HER COUNTRY OBVIOUSLY. WE LUCKILY STILL HAVE A CHOICE LETS VERBALIZE IT IN 2008. IF ALL TAXPAYERS STICK TOGETHER AND OUTWEIGH THE NON TAXPAYERS DECISIONS IS OUR ONLY CHOICE. ANY HELP WE CAN GET WILL BE GOOD BUT WE HAVE TO STICK TOGETHER AND I HOPE THE TAXPAYERS WIN THE 2008 ELECTIONS THIS YEAR.

    I am very scared of the obamanation that is going on in this country. I followed the SC primary and being the first southern state I was curious to see if the Wife of the "first black president" or if the multiracial candidate would win. I found it real interesting that the 90% of the black voters voted for Obama and about half the white voters voted for him as well and it seemed to me that if anybody is voting along racial lines it appears to be the black population. Don't get me wrong if Colin Powell was running he would have mine. Obama is a mystery man and it seems everyone is just plain infatuated with him and not what he stands for. To me it seems that some are voting for the cover of the book and not what is inside of the book. You might need to check out the book series "Left Behind". There is a leader in it that everyone just think is wonderful but turns out to be very deceptive and the False Prophet. That's why its getting scary. Think about it.

    I would vote for Clinton before Obama. You need someone with history behind them: good and back. Obama just cam out all of a sudden! Also he said he would bring troops home the 1st year. Does this tell you something about him?

    Here we go again, elections a year away and no one to vote into office. I do not trust Obama or Clinton to make wise decisions. McCain is the only republican I would vote for. Surely we should have better choices. I would like to see us be able to vote in all states at the same time to choose who will run, not one state at the time.

    I was quite surprised to see Edwards drop out of the race the other day. It was sad to see him drop out, because I personally think that he was slightly better then Clinton or Obama, but that is just my personal opinion, and I sadly do not know much about the other candidates.

    I FEEL THAT A STRONG LEADER POSSESS THE SKILLS NECESSARY TO MEND THE WOUNDS OF AN ALREADY DIVIDED NATION. HOWEVER, WE NEED A STRONG LEADER THAT WILL DEFEND OUR FREEDOM NO MATTER WHAT.
