At least Paris has an energy plan!

First of all, I don’t know anyone who actually supports partial birth abortions. Second, there is no such thing as right and wrong in love. And third, aren’t people who are looking to change the constitution based on religion just the same as people trying to change it based on personal beliefs?

We don’t need to come to the light… We are already there… maybe you should join us.

I work two jobs and my whole family works their butts off. My sister is in the Navy. We have all had jobs since we were very young.

Stop insulting the people who work hard for where they are. Not all Democrats are lazy just like not all Republicans work hard. Stop generalizing. It’s annoying.

But, unfortunately for the Democrats, McCain and Palin walk the walk as well. Gov. Palin’s speech put an exclamation point into this whole race. What a great candidate!

They would rather be led like sheep than analyze specific issues, voting records, and other decision-making data. Yep, just let people like the GOP and Bush/McCain do their thinking for them. Where I come from, the end result gets spelled out this way: “Live poor but vote rich.” If McCain were to be elected, all those poor unthinking suckers who voted for him along with those super-religious and/or super-materialistic GOP leaders who are behind all this deserve just exactly what they’ll get, four more years of the same. It’s just a pity that all of us who could see ahead eight years ago and knew what an idiot Bush was (and has proved to be) have to suffer the same consequences.

Energy is our economy, Energy affects everything. The more it costs the more we pay as companies cut back jobs, benefits, etc. Like it or not our energy needs dictate our economy.

What kind of crack do you have to smoke to truly believe the Republican Party is not a working class party? The working class in compromised of people of all views from left to right. The working class people keep this country running no matter who is president. This election has become a series of campaigns that bring me back to the elementary school elections where each candidate promised Twinkies and longer recesses to appease the crowds. While knowing their ability to deliver anything was false.

That doesn’t even sound like a real job? More like a hobby or after-work community involvement.

I have worked my entire life and have paid my bills as best as I could. I am not rich, I make less than most professional people. I have little debt past a house and car. I am working to give my family options as they grow. I do not want a government taking more of my income away so the over-abused welfare system can have it or other well intentioned bills can steal it.

The current administrations low approval rate is rediculous because what is the comparison? What president has been faced with such a severe attack on home soil? This is a time to repair the economy, educate our children and secure our country. McCain has been through things that set him apart from any other politician. I believe he knows whats right for the country and I hope when he is elected that he does command from the heart.

GOD bless America!

Why last night of course. And it is about time. Sarah’s identifying with the American people will cause a Republican win in November. Obama and the Democratic party are the ones on the ropes now. The Dems have no substance. No message except for CHANGE. What exactly is this change? McCain has a long record of going against the normal party establishment. That is why the Republican base has been causious about his being their nominee. With Sarah Palin as his VP. All fear is gone. Women of america will vote for the Republicans as well as independent voters. We want lower taxes, less government, etc…. McCain/Palin will bring it and the Dems know it. That’s why they have been attacking Palin so strong. Now after her speech last night, we can expect that attack to go to new levels.

They are so scared… and they should be. Come to the light, cowards of terrorism, we will finish this fight so your children can live without the fear of being blown up on American soil. Come to the light, abortion supporters, there has to be something seriously wrong with a person who will vote to have 9 month old healthy babies partially pulled from their mother’s womb alive, have scissors plunged into their head and their brains sucked out. Come to the light, gay rights activists, in your heart of hearts you know what is right and what is wrong. Come to the light, all judges who want to change our constitution from the bench based on their personal beliefs and feelings. Sarah Palin is exactly who Hillary would like to be when she grows up!
