    Obama/Mccain..what's the difference?

    Is there a real big difference between these two? Will either one do anything to help fix the mess this country is in? It seems it's turned into one big game of trying to win over the other parties voters..well..more than usual anyway. Obama wants to continue Bush's faith based initiatives..can anybody show one example of what this has accomplished? And he wants to continue it to try and raise his appeal among the christian sheeples. And it's hard to tell where Mccain stands on an issue from day to day. I'm not voting for either of these fools. If we all stay home on election day..maybe they'd get the point.

    I'm going to vote for the better of the two and its kind of stupid to do anything else.

    As far as the differences it as clear as black and white with maybe some grey area with one of them.

    The only big difference I see is Mccain wants to keep us in that mess in Iraq, and Obama supposedly wants us out. Otherwise they're both saying whatever they can to lock up votes. Which is normal, but this is the worst i've seen it.

    WTF do YOU mean by "Christian Sheeples?? Are you insinuating that those of us who believe in GOD are stupid?? Thats funny, because even though we dont parrticularly care for the way an athiest/non-believer thinks...we dont lump them all into one catagory. I am by NO means a perfect "christian", no one is. but to totally trash people for beliving in Christ is ridiculous.
    Why don't YOU try praying once in awhile?? You may actually see an improvement in YOUR outlook and attitude. YES...GOD even loves you!!
    (now thats sayin" something)

    I am living proof that GOD DOES exist. With my health problems...I shoulda / coulda died many times..well I'm still here and functioning.

    Ya know something pabull? I'm with you on that!

    from wiki:
    Sheeple is a term of disparagement, a portmanteau created by combining the words "sheep" and "people." It is often used to denote persons who acquiesce to authority, and thus undermine their own human individuality. The implication of sheeple is that as a collective, people believe whatever they are told, especially if told so by authority figures, without processing it to be sure that it is an accurate representation of the real world around them. The term is generally used in a political or religious sense.

    Perhaps the original poster isn't aware of the disparagement of the term and thinks he is 'being cute'?
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    I agree with Mrs Reb and Pabull.

    Man, that had to be a typo or something because the use of that word was just ignorant gunslinging.

    The difference is between a socialist nightmare who wants to turn back the clock on this country in every respect except when it comes to taxes, then it's full steam ahead..........................................

    Or a bad dream.

    Exactly. Those are the ones i'm referring to. The religious nuts who beleive anything they're told when it comes to their religion. There's plenty out there.

    1. No one knows a thing about Obama. At all

    2. McCain is just a badass sounding name.

    McCain wants to drill for oil , build more nuclear power stations , use our vast amounts of coal , and strive for independence - not rely on Arabs for oil .

    Obama is against everything above . But he promises to change , and hope . To what ... and what for .... nobody knows .
