The Fight For American Tour made a stop in Greenville Wednesday afternoon.

It's a group of prominent supporters of John McCain going to the battle ground states to push for the Republican ticket.

A friend and former POW alongside of McCain came to say why he is the best man for the White House.

The participants discussed their reasons for supporting John McCain, as well as address grassroots volunteers at the Pitt County Republican Headquarters.

    Is anyone else concerned with the accuracy of this election? ACORN has been involved in 140,000 new vote registrations in PA alone. Yet the Supreme Court doesnt consider the matter worth investigating. If Obama wins after ignoring the campaign fund conditions and all these bogus votes like Mickey Mouse etc. then he will have successfully bought the Presidential election! If any of his alleged past is even remotely true this country is a nation of fools for voting him! Michelle..for the first time in my life I'm not proud to be an American!

    I am a middle of the road conservative and a bipartisan voter. I usually lean toward the Repubs but John McCain scares me. I respect him and everything he went through as a POW. God bless him. Because he was a POW and endured God only knows what, I question his mental stability. Reports are out there about his volatile temper. Just something to think about. Is it a concern for anyone else?

    William, you're a one issue voter. That's fine, but you need to recognize that you're voting on the war and nothing else. I know this because there is no other way you could originally support the great Dr. Paul and Obama. They are diametrically opposed on the issues that define the government's role in our lives. Ron Paul is a Libertarian, who believes in strict adherance to the Constitution and the govt having limited involvement in your life. Obama essetially thinks that the American people are too stupid and unable to take care of themselves and therefore, government should take from those who do know how and give to those who don't know how or are too lazy to do so. Obama will raise your taxes (yes he will) by allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire in 2010 - that effects everyone, not just those over whatever the # is today. For him, it's not about revenue, it's about fairness. Paul wants to abolish federal income tax and get rid of the IRS alltogether. Please reconsider your vote.

    The most cringe-worthy political moment of the day, so far, came when Sen. John McCain called out for his new buddy Joe the Plumber to stand up at a rally in Ohio, only to be greeted with confused silence. Joe the Plumber wasn't there.

    To William, it amazes me that you think that Obama will make the better President. Let me fill you in on something, there may be some people that this becomes a racial issue, but the majority could care less. As you stated in your blog, he is half white and half black, big freakin deal. It seems that people like you make it more of a racial issue. I don't care what color of skin our President is, as long as he's experienced enough to lead this country. Joe Biden himself said that Obama is not ready to lead this great country. Some of you think that he's going to ride in on a white horse and save the day, you're sadly mistaken. He's going to come in and raise taxes for all the special programs and distribute our money as he sees fit. The tax bracket started out at $250,000, it then became $200,000 and now it is at $150,000. Who knows what he's going to do during his presidency. Wake up America and vote McCain!

    For Pirate: I have read the policies, listened to debates, read internet and magazine information. My first choice was Ron Paul. Based on what we have left, Obama is much more likely to help me and,in my opinion, the rest of the country and the world. If we continue as we have been for the last few years, the entire world is going to jump all over us. Let's be honest,white people are scared to death of the thought of a black man as president. (In reality just part black) With our troops in dozens of countries, what would we do should several countries decide to attack us at home? We need to let other people live their lives and concentrate on our own.
