Get over global warming, look for record highs in temps and you'll see the majority of them were way back in the early 1900s, before cars were an issue.

Record highs is not the same as higher average daily temperatures (global warming).

It is like comparing the sex life of a single guy who brags about once having sex 12 times in one night with a girl he brought home from the bar, to someone who is married with a typical US married sex life. Sure, that guy might have had sex 12 whole times, but then he might go a whole year before meeting another girl drunk enough to both stand upright and to find him attractive at the same time. Meanwhile, the married guy (who keeps his wife happy by putting the toilet paper on the roll so that it unrolls from the TOP) gets sex on a regular basis and gets more sex on average over the whole year.

I don't think it's fair to call McCain a moron. I disagree with the majority of his politics. I plan on voting for Obama.
If anything, respect the fact that McCain served our country for the majority of his life.Lets not forget the living hell he endured as a POW.
How many of his critics have served our nation as long and faithful as he has?

It's irrelevant. Even diehard conservatives know he doesn't have a chance.

Any one here drive across a glacier today or ever?

Didn't think so...the earth has been warming for about 10,000 years that's why we are not living in an ice-age right now. Guess what, it will cool down again too, then warm up, then cool down.....

Specifically to McCain...he is not a perfect conservative, but at least he is not a socialist.

Universal healthcare anyone...the government can't even run a damn DMV without lines and screwups, how are they gonna run healthcare?

I agree completly with all your points but on Universal Healthcare, I've spoken to an Aussie and a Brit and they were not too thrilled with the UHC system they have. Mainly very high Taxes.

The whole global warming thing, its just the earth on its cycles, warms up, cools down, rinse n repeat. About McCain, I don't know yet, its not so obvious as people say it is, each side has their serious flaws.

It amazes me people put more faith in an unknown such as Obama than a man like McCain. I can't even fathom voting for Obama after learning of his chosen pastor/mentor relationship of 20 years, his wife's opinion of the country, and his total lack of experience. Would Obama even be discussed or be in the running if he was white? Absolutely not. If you think deeply about it, you know there is no way. Its a sad state of affairs when people are desparate to make such a weak feel-good vote. Do you really like the word "change" that much?

Reminds me of what Churchill said, "The biggest argument against Democracy is spending five minutes talking to the average voter".

The reason a moron can run for President is because we let any jackass vote, so why not. If we only allowed educated people or people with high IQ's, then the candidates would reflect that. Personally, I prefer my Comander in Chief to have some sort of military experience. But on the other hand the democrats will offer a candidate that wears his qualifications on his skin (albeit his only qualification).

I just love the hate for Barack Obama. After 8 years of Bush, all I have to say is too bad. I attended his Tampa, FL rally today and I left amazed!! We are a broken country and there is no guarantees that he can fix it. In fact, he even stated that Democrats cant do it alone today. I have never seen so many people come together so united. I get a really good feeling from this man. I support Barack Obama and it feels damn good. I respect McCain but his party has left a very bad taste in my mouth.

John McCain is more of an Independent than a Republican.

All I hope for is that the voter does not vote for what "feels good" but puts some real thought behind why they are voting for their choice. Do they think that raising taxes is going to help the economy? Do they think that a guy that wants to talk to the leaders of rogue nations is going to help anything? Even Hillary disagrees with that one.

Long time yet till November. Just hope the right choice is made here.

Two points from the last post:
Why is it that you oppose a Liberal it's hate; and, you oppose a Conservative it's sound judgement?

And that bad taste you have in your mouth is that liberal BS you have been swallowing. And you might check your ears because you can't hear the truth.
