    I have never paid much attention to “End Times” revelations by groups or set religions. But lately I have been giving it a great deal more thought. I am actually wondering if Obama is the Anti-Christ. Christ said he would be able to fool the elect and Obama is charasmatic. He has risen to even becoming a candidate far too quickly. I have been listening to him and if I did not know any better I would vote for him. Muslims are taught to lie about many things and since Obama was an admitted muslim which he cannot lie about, he may be lying about becoming a Christian. Even his church is suspicious. I showed my husband a video on abortion and before it started, he asked me if it was the one where they cut the baby’s throat??!! I had not heard of that one until he said that and am appalled by partial birth abortion. I have always been against abortion, but when did they start allowing it all the way up until the 9 month? This is a painful video to watch, but if you agree or disagree with abortion, please visit this and watch the entire video!

    I voted for Obama. The reason why is he is the furthest from falsehood, which means he is the sincerest. McCain thrive in falsehood. Every part of his campain in steeped in deception. It is not his fault because that is the way his party does buisness.
    This buisness of Obama being a Muslim(one who submits to G-D) being a negative thing makes my stomach curl. So what if he was. He is now a Christian and a good one because being a good Muslim is a little harder than being a good “Christian”.
    Obama is likened to the plumbline spoken of in Amos 7. By your attittude towards him you reveal your true self and you can see your falts because Obama is but a sincere man.
    I am pro-choice(conservativly), I believe a woman (unmarried) has the right to decide wether or not she is going to keep a child. If she was raised morally than we would probably not have to have this discussion. But if we do than she should have the final say because her morals will guide her.
    I notice a lot of white concervatives talk about being pro-life, but when that baby is with a black man they want to kill it when it comes to their daughters.
    I could go on.
    But OBAMA IS OUR NEXT PRESIDENT…MUSLIM OR NOT!

  • What Would Teddy Do?

    I wrote in Mitt Romney! This election was Hobson’s Choice….McCain and Obama are both traitors to this country and want to destroy its sovereignty by merging the United States with Mexico and allowing illegals to flood this country unchecked and….indeed…they have both encouraged them to do so!! Think I’m a jerk? Wait until this country becomes a third world cess pool comprised of a bunch of foreign factions that have no intention of pledging allegiance to it. Those who’ve voted for Obama or McCain can then count themselves as the bigger fools…

    I voted for Mccain- not because Im republican, but because I believe he truly will do the best job. He’s as much a democrat as is possible while still being republican. He’s done amazing things for his own state, has years of experience (a necessary if you REALLY want to get anything done in washington, has shown himself dedicated to the United states in every way throughout his whole life…. I hate to say it, but my biggest pet peeve are people voting for obama simply because he’s black. Is pulling the race card a legitimate reason to vote for your president? If so, then we aren’t advancing in terms of race equality, we are simply still using race to guide our decisions. Also, if thats why someone wants to vote obama, let it be known Mccain has an adopted black daughter…. but you don’t see him flashing that around do you? While previously an Obama supporter, I actually READ his tax plans (did You?!). He isn’t rasing taxes for the “rich CEO’s”- He’s lowering them! If you make over 1.6 million you will be qualified for LOWER taxes! (how convenient he fits that bracket as well as many of his high-power supporters such as warren buffet and celebrities). Also his economic plan, according to my DEMOCRAT economics professor, will either fail or take YEARS to take effect if at all. People are buying into a media circus without even really knowing what the candidates stand for. While his education plan is a good one, its unrealistic. At least Mccain’s plans have a chance at actually working. For those who vote Obama- they do so blindly. Vote for a man who has spent as much time in public office as he has running for it and see what you get in terms of a job well done.
