McCain Up in Florida Early Voting Poll

This is very interesting. According to an LA Times/Bloomberg poll of those who voted early in Florida, McCain leads Obama 49-45% even though more Democrats voted than Republicans:

Democrats are beaming that their party is outperforming the Republicans in early voting, releasing numbers Wednesday that show registrants of their party ahead 54 percent to 30 percent among the 1.4 million voters who have gone to the polls early.

"We're thrilled at the record turnout so far," said Democratic Party of Florida spokesman Eric Jotkoff. "It's a clear indication that Democrats want to elect Barack Obama and Democrats up and down the ballot so that we can start creating good jobs, rebuilding our economy and getting our nation back on track."

But party breakdowns for turnout aren't the same as final tallies, and at least one poll offered a different view for the campaign of Republican John McCain.

A Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll gave McCain a 49-45 lead over Democrat Barack Obama among Floridians who have already voted.

And Republicans continued to show a traditional strength, leading 50 percent to the Democrats' 30 percent in the 1.2 million absentee ballots already returned.

Democrats are beaming that more Democrats came out to vote early but it seems many of them aren't voting for the Democrat candidate. Hmmm.

I've never thought Democrats as a whole were actively self-destructive. Sure, political ideologies can differ, and opinions can vary, but there's a lot of them who are going to look at the issues, look at the candidates, and decide their vote based on issues, not Party loyalty.

49-45 for McCain with a majority of Democrats voting is a VERY interesting number... assuming (of course) that the respondents are telling the truth about their vote.

It might be a landslide, all right. But not for Obama.

Obama the Democratic choice is at a great advantage with the money he has at his disposal as opposed to that of McCain. Voting in America has really gone to Hell and there shouldn't be such great advantages. The person with the most money wins in his political party not who is qualified....I'm Republican but I'd give anything if it was McCain -VS-Clinton...Atleast then I wouldn't feel that we are in danger. This election is different people are ignoring obvious reasons why you should not vote for Obama....The Media is pushing it in a biased way...Blacks are just voting black...Kids are just voting against the war. Sadly in the end when Obama wins hindsight will be 20/20....We will feel the fury of a Nuclear Iran and terrorism here at home. Our 401K and futures in quiet America will be over...Spend the money on that new Corvette or Mustang you were wanting. Because there is no future after Obama takes office. Vote the Bible each and everytime if you want the country that GOD blessed tomorrow.....and every day after that. Choose your fate wisely....Say no to Obama the Trojan Horse of Terrorism

This whole story, and I do mean story, is nothing more than a ploy by the Obama camp to get the apathetic youth vote to the polls. Scare them into thinking McCain has a chance.

The Obama camp will play up this close race narrative until election day. The McCain campaign has been playing checkers the whole time Obama has been playing chess. Check and Mate.

I expect nothing less than a landslide victory for Obama and a historic take over of congress by the Dems.

I am usually optimistic, and if this election were based solely on election day I would think McCain has a good chance, but between early voting and voter fraud I fear Obama will be hard to overcome. I still think it is possible, but will not be surprised if the predicted Obama/Dem bloodbath comes off as predicted -- especially with the help of ACORN and others. I am still going to do all I can to get out the vote for McCain though.

My husband is working in PA this week and called shocked by how big those around him are for McCain. He is not in Philly, obviously, but still he was shocked at the amount of outward support for McCain there.

GREAT NEWS FOR MCCAIN: no evidence of intended voter fraud has been uncovered. AWESOME!

it turns out that ACORN is actually REQUIRED to turn in every single registration they collect, whether its suspect or not!

so they really should be inspecting and reporting the irregularities... and they have been, including in this case. whew! so dont worry, ACORN is actually on top of this and theyre keeping the authorities apprised!

i know you are all worried that legions of obama voters were being registered under several different names, so that they could circulate to several voting places. but rejoice, neocons! ...it turns out that legitimate voters were being signed up multiple times under the same name only because street workers wanted a few extra bucks for the names they were collecting. so by and large, they traded IDENTICAL names around which wouldnt ultimately result in any additional registrations!

i wasnt sure if i could believe that ACORN was behaving legally. what if they are really a front organization for the taliban communist whitey killers of america??? but praise jesus tapdancing christmas! ...it turns out ACORN has mccains own seal of approval! in fact he was a keynote speaker for them 2 years ago, and he called them HEROES!

arent you RELIEVED????? i know i am! so the next time some yokel tells you that ACORN is fixing the election, just give them that look of abject disdain, and marvel at their glorious and pitiful stupidity!

Maybe some of you should learn the difference between voter registration fraud and voter FRAUD. It seems as if Acorn had people that were commiting fraud within their own agency, which means it was voter registration fraud against Acorn and not voter fraud (in which voter registration fraud rarely turns into voter fraud) and even so McCain didn't seem to have a problem with speaking at an Acorn convention two years ago, so give it a rest. The GOP is getting sued all over the place as we speak for voter supression right now.

Im a conservative and want to be optimistic, but Florida is just one state out of the seven swing states that McCain would have to sweep and win to even get close to Obama. The fact that McCain is playing defense in all the states that he should have wrapped up is not good regardless of what anyone says. Im not too fond of all of Obamas plans either, but I don't think he's the "devil" either. If the guy wins the election, then he wins the election and some of you need to just get a life and get over it. If McCain loses, then he brought it on himself with his ridiculous campaign and Palin. Everyone is disgusted by McCains campaign, they have completely torn apart the Republican party and what it should stand for. Reagan must be turning over in his grave. Im starting to wish someone else was representing the Republican party instead of McCain.

You respondents are a joke!... (Below threshold)

You respondents are a joke!

Simply stated, John McCain is a grumpy old man who harbors antiquated ideas and views on the world, and is well beyond his "prime".

Besides a few challenges to his party's positions, McCain has never been a maverick -- with nothing resembling a remarkable career -- a career filled with elite handouts and affirmative positionings the likes of which startles the mind. Graduating at the bottom of his collegiate class, in a program he wasn't qualified to attend, McCain was ushered into the military as an "officer" and later into the Congress via family contacts, power and influence. Without those handout connections, which most Americans don't generally have access to, McCain would have probably become a bum.

Although he is often portrayed as a hero, McCain was easily broken in Vietnam while imprisoned -- putting REAL heroes in harms way by revealing sensitive information to the Vietnamese which reportedly got others shot down. McCain likes to site that he didn't
accept the Vietnamese offer to leave his captivity because he wanted to remain with his fellow soldiers, when the truth is McCain was ashamed of his weaknesses under pressure, when tested, and couldn't face his family or the American public.

McCain likes to say that he knows how to win wars. What wars has he won? Vietnam? Vietnam was the least successful war in American history. Any objective assessment of McCain's military career will easily reveal to the unbiased or brainwashed that his career was a failure. There were many, many more deserving soldiers who came home from Nam who have not been recognized or honored for their true bravery. Of course, they weren't the sons of an Admiral. The legend of the great John McCain is one of the greatest farces in American military history. He knows it and every man who served with him knows it as well.

McCain, the no-good philanderer that he is, CHEATED ON HIS WIFE, with multiple women, then dumped her for a rich young socialite in a very despicable way -- a socialite who became his new wife and later a prescription junkie -- eventually using her foundation to launder drugs for her habit (a federal offense of which she was never indited).

How can we trust John McCain to run the country when he has proven that he can't keep his penis in his pants, and could not even honor the sanctity of his own wedding vows -- Christian vows made to GOD. How can we, the American people, trust John McCain if his wife (who was damn near handicapped from an injury when he dumped her) couldn't.

McCain likes to speak of associations and character, but what about his associations and corrupt relations with Charles Keating, Gordon Liddy and a slew of other heretofore unnamed associations that have been tabled by the "mainstream media". The same media McCain conveniently denounces -- which has always covered for his crooked affairs, and missteps.

McCain is not ready for prime time. He is a loose cannon with a feeble mind who will usher in the final blows to America's already fragile economy and status in the world, if he is elected.

And his sidekick Sarah Palin -- Besides being a complete idiot (she couldn't even name a single newspaper she reads), McCain's own handlers describe her as a "whack job" (i.e. a nut.)

I know many of you are fired up for McCain. And it's good that you are at least politically involved. But I'll tell you what, if McCain were black and Obama white, and running the same narrow-minded, disorganized campaign, not a single one of you would support him. Black people wouldn't even support him. The white Obama, with his coolness and organization, as displayed in this campaign would win by a landslide.

Wake up people. The republicans have ruled 20 of the last 28 years. The best years of that period were the Clinton years -- despite the constant side trekking of the Republicans.

See John McCain for what you know he is, an unprepared, fumbling old coot who cannot even run a presidential campaign. How in God's name can he run a country? A vote for John McCain and his cronies is truly a vote for America's demise as a world economic power.

THE TRUTH IS COMING, THE... (Below threshold)
Wayne smith:

DEU 32:26-27.

Genesis 15:13

400 years of mistreatment in a foreign land
Was the prophecy of Genesis 15:13 fulfilled with the children of Israel's Egyptian sojourn, and bondage?

Genesis 15:13: "And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;"
In this chapter, Yah made a promise to Abram (who later, became Abraham) concerning his seed. Yah says: "Know of a surety that your seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs and shall serve them; and THEY SHALL AFFLICT THEM FOUR HUNDRED YEARS;"

Scholars and "bible experts" point to this prophecy as being fulfilled when the children of Israel spent 430 years in Egypt, but if we closely examine what YAH actually said, we'll see there's more to this.

The Hebrews walked into Egypt, rather they were brought into Egypt with Pharaoh's own wagons (Genesis 45:19,21,27). They were not slaves, and they were not mistreated. At this time Joseph was vice royal, because of this they held a very favorable position among the Egyptians (Genesis- 45:18-24). The Bible tells us that the oppression of the Hebrews began after Joseph, all his brethren, and the entire generation that entered Egypt died out. Then, there was a population growth among the Hebrews (Exodus 1:6-11).

Scripture also says that Joseph lived for 110 years. He saw his son Ephraim's children of the third generation: the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh (Joseph's other son) were brought up on Joseph's knees (Gen. 50:23,26). Joseph lived long enough to see his great grandchildren.

The children of Israel were only in Egypt 430 years. In order for the prophecy in Genesis 15:13 to be fulfilled, they would have to have been oppressed for 400 years, so this means that after 30 years of being in Egypt, the evil treatment should have begun, but the fact is, thirty years after their arrival, they were still in good favor with the Egyptians.

As was stated, the oppression began after Joseph died, and Joseph's death took place well after their first 30 years in Egypt. Also, during the time of Joseph's death, the Hebrews were still treated well by the Egyptians. The evidence for this can be found in Genesis 50:26.

We are told that Joseph was embalmed and put into a coffin in Egypt. In ancient Egypt, embalming and coffin burial's were reserved for royalty, members of Pharaoh's court and the rich. So this tells us Joseph was still in good favor with the Egyptians when he died, and if Joseph was still treated well by the Egyptians at his death, so were the Hebrews.

Exodus 1:8 says, "Now, there rose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph." This is a very profound statement because Joseph was second in charge to Pharaoh (Exodus 41:42-44). Being vice royal would have made Joseph a very popular and well known man throughout the land of Egypt, particularly in the house of Pharaoh. Ancient Egyptian history tells us that one could only claim the Pharaoh's throne if:

1. He was the son of the Pharaoh, a prince
2. He was a high ranking member of the king's court
3. He was another male member of the Pharaoh's family.
4. If a coup took place.

In any case, the next Pharaoh would have known who Joseph was, because Joseph was also in the kings court and knew all of the king's sons, all the high ranking members, and all of Pharaoh's male family members.

Scholars have stated that Joseph and the Hebrews were in Egypt when a people known as the Hyksos were in charge.

They try to make a point that the Hyksos were the ones showing favor to the Hebrews and not the native Egyptians. The Hyksos also known as the shepherd kings did conquer and rule Egypt for over 200 years. Their domination of Egypt was known in Egyptian history as the GREAT HUMILIATION. If we look deeply into scripture we'll find that the Egyptians in Joseph's time were in fact native Egyptians.

First, let's consider the conversation Joseph had with the Hebrews who were first to arrive in Egypt. He was instructing them on how to respond to one of Pharaoh's questions.

In verse 34 of Genesis 46:31-34, Joseph says to them, when Pharaoh asks their occupation, "That ye should say, your servants trade have been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that you may dwell in the land of Goshen; FOR EVERY SHEPHERD IS AN ABOMINATION UNTO THE EGYPTIANS."

This statement alone proves that the Hyksos were not in charge of Egypt during the time of Joseph. The Hyskos were known as the shepherd kings or kings of the shepherds, so why would every shepherd be an abomination to the SHEPHERD KINGS? But every shepherd would be an abomination to native Egyptians, because the shepherd kings (Hyksos) had brought GREAT HUMILIATION to the Egyptians.

Next lets look at what happened after Ysrayl (Jacob) died, and the thing Joseph had done to his body.

Genesis 50:2-3, "And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father: and the physicians EMBALMED YSRAYL"

(3), "And forty days were fulfilled for him; FOR SO ARE FULFILLED THE DAYS OF THOSE WHICH ARE EMBALMED: and the Egyptians mourned for him 70 days."

Embalming was a practice of the native Egyptians. They were the first culture on earth to embalm their dead. Embalming was not done to all the population of Egypt, just a select few.

The practice of embalming was something done by a highly developed society, the Hyksos on the other hand were shepherds and embalming was more than likely not in their culture. So, if the Hyksos were ruling Egypt during the time of Joseph, why did they retain Egyptian culture? When a nation conquers another, the conqueror always places their culture above that of the conquered nation's.

This is one way that the conqueror shows superiority over the conquered, this has always been the case in ancient and modern times. (This is exactly what has happened with the invasion of the Americas by the Europeans). Because these Egyptians were still embalming according to native Egyptian culture, it stands to reason, that native Egyptians were ruling Egypt.

Scripture clearly shows that Egyptians were ruling Egypt during the time of Joseph and the Hebrews' sojourn.

Now, back to my point of the new king coming to power and not knowing Joseph. In order for this to happen, a few Pharaoh's had to have come to power and with each of them a new vice royal / government. This also means that after Joseph's death, enough time had elapsed where Joseph's memory in the house of Pharaoh was long forgotten, and the Hebrews were no longer seen as good neighbors but a foreign threat.

This is not hard to believe, ask the average Citizen of your country "who was in power at the turn of the 20th century", who was second in authority. Many if not all people (including governmental officials) will not know the answer.

Many years had passed and Joseph and his good deeds were long forgotten. How much time had elapsed? We can only speculate, but we can be assured that it was more than the 30 years of the 430 that they spent in Egypt.

The Hebrews oppression in Egypt did not last 400 years. Exactly how long did it last? We can only speculate on that as well, but we do know that it lasted no less than 80 years. This was the age of Moses when the Hebrews were liberated. Israel was in slavery from the time Moses was born to the time they were freed, which was 80 years.

Acts 7:6, says that the Hebrews would be brought into bondage in a strange land and those that bring them into bondage will entreat them evil 400 years, meaning no more than 499 years and no less than 399.

If we put this with the other information that has been presented on this site, we'll see that this prophecy was fulfilled with the advent of the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

Any good "black" history book will tell you that only the Hebrews (so called blacks) have been mistreated continually for over 400 years, with every form of racism including slavery, lynching, segregation, Jim Crowism, and the list goes on and on. It has been a non-stop oppression, which still continues today.

The Hebrews were brought to this hemisphere as slaves in the 1500's which was over 400 years ago. If this prophecy of being in a strange land 400 years and being treated evil didn't happen in Egypt, then where?

The only feasible answer would be in the Americas. This is the strange land that is not ours, this is where we have been afflicted continually for 400 years.

Acts 7:6 tells us that the Hebrews were to be brought into bondage. Ancient Ysrayl was not brought in bondage to Egypt they, as I have already mentioned, were in good favor with the Egyptians of Joseph's day. They lived peacefully with them in the beginning, and were not made slaves until much later.

Only the Hebrews of the Americas were brought into bondage into a strange land and entreated evil for over 400 years. No other group can prove that this has happened to them just as prophecy said it would.

In the Apocalypse of Abraham, 32:1-6, states: "Therefore, hear Abraham, and see, behold your seventh generation shall go with you. And they will go out into an alien land. And they will enslave them and oppress them as for one hour of the impious age. But of the nation whom they shall serve I am the judge." And the almighty also said this: "Have you heard Abraham, what I told you, what your tribe will encounter in THE LAST DAYS. Abraham having heard, accepted the words of the almighty in his heart."

The prophecy in Genesis 15, is to be fulfilled in these last days. It was not fulfilled in Egypt.

The 400 years in Genesis 15:13, is not to exceed 499 years.

We have been here for over 400 years (not to exceed 500 and not less than 399), and we're in a strange land that is not our own.

We are not owners of this land, we are only citizens. If the rulers decide we can no longer be citizens, what will stop them from deporting us to some other place?

I only say that, so you the reader will understand how Genesis 15:13 was a prophecy for the latter days, in which we are living now.

ISRAELITES & THE ... (Below threshold)


On this page "Israel and the Gentiles" we will separate the truth from the FALSE DOCTRINES. There are Israelite groups who teach that the Gentiles can't come to Yah and they can't be saved. As you will see, this is not scriptural. We will also have to look at the Gentile doctrine that says Israel has been cast away by The Father and He has chosen the them.

That too is unscriptural, we'll look at both those doctrine and see what Yah has to say about Israel and The Gentiles.

Who the true Israelites are. Now let us understand from Scripture who the Gentiles are. The doctrine taught today is the Gentiles are everybody on the earth who are not "Jews." That is not so. Scripture will tell us who and what a Gentile is.

Genesis 10:1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

3 And the sons of Gomer; ASHKENAZ, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

The sons of Japheth are the Gentiles, All the nations mentioned in Gen 10: 2-4 are traced back to the European nations. The Europeans or "White People" are the Gentiles. To prove this lets go back to scripture. The apostle Paul stated he is the apostle to the Gentiles.
Romans11:13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:

Paul taught Europeans,
1. The ROMANS,

All these people were white Europeans, if the Gentiles were everybody who wasn't an Israelite, why didn't the apostle to the Gentiles go to the Egyptians and Ethiopians? Both these nations were his next door neighbors? Paul didn't teach them because they are not Gentiles. Now that you have an understanding who the Gentiles and Israelites are let us move on.


From Scripture we know that all men who partake of the covenant and fully follow Yah will be in the coming kingdom.

Isaiah 56:7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

8 Yah which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.

Rev 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou been slain, and hast redeemed us to YAH by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

But let us not fall away from the fact that Israel must be brought in first, and those who come to Yah must come through Israel.

John 4:22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Israelites.

Ancient Israel was a farming society. There are two harvest seasons in Israel, the Spring harvest (first fruits) and a Fall Harvest. Symbolically Israel represents the Spring harvest (which is the first harvest), the other nations will be in the Fall harvest.

Israel is the first fruit, the NATIONS as a whole can't be brought in until Israel is. Israel has to know this truth first, we are the priest of Yah, we are the ones who have to take this word to the nations. Our ministry in this time is to Israel first, but we must not turn away any Gentile who desires to know the truth. When Yahshuah, the Messiah came to earth, he told his followers the mandate that we are to follow, he told the apostles to go to Israel only, don't go to the Gentiles. Lets look at that scripture where Yahshuah gives us the mandate.

Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

5 These twelve Yahshuah sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Ask yourself "Why did he say this?" Well it's simple. Israel has to know the truth first, because we are the teachers, Yahshuah was on a mission from Yah to awaken and redeem the lost sheep of the house of Israel. We as a people had lost the path to truth and understanding. Yahshuah told the apostle's to preach about the kingdom, the kingdom is coming but he said preach this to Israel first, Not to the Gentiles or any other nation.

Yahshuah also tells us that he was sent just to the House of Israel.

Matthew 15:22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Master, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

25 Then came she and worshiped him, saying, Master, help me.

26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and cast it to dogs. 27 And she said, Truth, Master: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. 28 Then Yahshuah answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

HalleluYah for Yahshuah, Once again he is giving us the mandate that we are to follow in this day and time. He told the women who was not an Israelite that he was sent to the lost sheep of the House of Israel ONLY. Many pastors and preachers don't understand this scripture.

Yahshuah said he was not sent to Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists etc. He was sent to the true Hebrews a.k.a. African Americans. The only reason he helped the woman was because she showed great faith.

But Yahshuah was not making it a priority to stop and preach about the Kingdom to her. Why should this woman know about the kingdom when the ones whom the kingdom has been promised to (Israel) don't know about the kingdom? Lets look at a situation today that relates to the conversation Yahshuah had with the woman.

There are Gentiles who

You have to ask yourself if they know this much about scripture why can't they see the truth about who Israel is?


I have encountered many of them, in fact some come short of saying WHY WOULD YAH CHOSE NIGGERS AS HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE. The so-called "Black man and women" have to know they are Israel first, before the Gentiles at large do, everything is done in season.

Yahshuah didn't take His ministry to any Gentile nation, because Israel had to know and except him first, he was sent to us to be our salvation, that's the way it is. Our main goal in this time frame is for Israel to know the truth first then the nations. In due time, Yah will send us to the Gentiles and he will give them understanding of who we are, then they will know.

Zep 3:19 Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.

20 At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the Yah.

Just as Yahshuah did we must never turn away a righteous Gentile who truly has faith and want to know the truth. The Gentile Nations are in darkness and Israel has been called to be a light unto them.

Acts 13:45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.

46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of YAH should FIRST have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.

47 For so hath the Master commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.

48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Yah: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.

The reason Yah is dealing with Israel first is because he has chosen us to be the teachers, that's his order. If a man wants to know Yah he has to come through Yahshuah, if a man wants to know Yahshuah he has to come to Israel (those Israelites who have been called out). Yah placed his word in the hand of the Israelite nation.

3:1 What advantage have the Israelites? or what profit is there of circumcision? 2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of Yah.

Psalms 147:19 He showeth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.

20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. HalleluYah.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel; it is the power of Yah for salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Israelite first and also to the Greek.

Zech. 8:23 Thus saith YAH of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is an Israelite, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that YAH is with you.

Has Israel been Cast away?

One of the most erroneous doctrines taught by the various religions today is, "The Children of Israel have been cast away and replaced with the Gentiles".

Many Christian ministers teach this and according to scripture this is not true. Yah the Most High has not done away with his people Israel. Scripture states this,

Romans 11:1 I say then, Hath Yah cast away his people? Yah forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

2 Yah hath not cast away his people which he foreknew.

3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of YAH without effect?

4 YAH forbid: yea, let YAH be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

Brother Paul is letting the Gentiles (Romans) know that Yah has not cast away his people Israel. Yah cannot or will not completely destroy Israel, because it is the job of the Israelites to teach the world of the coming kingdom. Yah also tells us in the book of Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 31: 35 Thus saith Yah, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; Yah of hosts is his name:

36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.

37 Thus saith Yah; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD.

Yah said if the sun and moon no longer shines in the sky then Israel is cast away, he also said if you can measure the heavens or measure the earth beneath then Israel will be cast away. The sun is still in the sky at day and the moon and stars still shine at night, so Israel has not been cast away, we are still his chosen people. So if a man comes to you preaching doctrine that says Israel is no longer accepted or chosen in the Fathers eye, then you show him the previous scriptures of what the Most High says about this.

The order that Yah has ordained from the beginning of time is this:
Yah, Yahshuah, The angels and Israel.

Yah gives the word to Yahshuah, Yahshuah gives it to the angels, and the angels give it to Israel and Israel takes it to the rest of mankind.

This is why Paul told the Romans in the book of Romans 11: that he is an Israelite, so Paul was saying if the Israelites are cast away then he wouldn't be teaching them. One of the most well known scriptures that I've seen used by Gentiles who say Israel is cast away and it doesn't matter if you are an Israelites or not is Galatians 3:28

28 There is neither "Jew" (Yahudah) nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Messiah Yahshuah.

What many fail to understand is, Jew and Greek both represents the separation from Israel which means a separation from Yah the Most High. Notice the verse didn't say anything about there is NO ISRAEL OR NO ISRAELITE. Let me explain this. As was stated on this site the name Jew is a corrupt nickname for the tribe of Judah (Yahudah). When that verse was written it didn't use the word Jew, it used Yahudah. There is neither Yahudah nor Greek (so you won't get confused, we will use the English translation Judah). Judah was once separated from Israel.

After King Solomon died Yah split the kingdom of Israel into two halves. The Northern half was called The House Of Israel, It was comprised of 10 of the 12 tribes of Israel, the Southern half was called Judah made up of the remaining 2 tribes of Israel. Judah always represented the separation from Israel. The Greeks represent the Gentiles, the Gentiles have always been separated from Yah, until now.

Ephesians 2:11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called uncircumcision by that which is called the circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

12 That at that time ye were without Messiah, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without Yah in the world:

Judah and Greeks both represent separation from Israel, this is why Paul used these two nations to say in Messiah we are all Israel. When the Gentiles are brought in by Yah ordained Israelites and takes hold of the covenant and believes in Yah and Yahshuah, then they become part of the commonwealth of Israel. When the Messiah walked Earth he was an Israelite, we are one in Him; we are what he is, he is an Israelite and so are we.

In the book of Acts chapter 10 a very interesting event takes place, lets go to Acts 10 and check this out. This scripture tells us about the Gentile Cornelius, scripture says he believed in Yah.

10:1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band.
2 A devout man, and one that feared YAH with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to YAH always.
3 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of YAH coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius.
4 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, MASTER? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before YAH.
5 And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter:
21 Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come?
22 And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth YAH, and of good report among all the nation of the Israelites, was warned from YAH by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.
25 And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshiped him.
26 But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.
27 And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together.
28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is A HEBREW to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but YAH hath showed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
29 Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me?
30 And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,
31 And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of YAH.
32 Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee.
33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before YAH, to hear all things that are commanded thee of YAH.
34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that YAH is no respecter of persons:
35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
36 The word which YAH sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Yahshuah Messiah: (he is Master of all:)
37 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
38 How Yah anointed Yahshuah of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for YAH was with him.
Cornelius feared, prayed and believed in Yah, but he had to go to Peter the Israelite in order to be taught the word of Yah. An angel of the Most High came to Cornelius, he told him to go to Peter the Israelite and he will tell him what he ought to know. It is the Job of Israel to teach the world.

This is why it is important for us to know who the true Israelites are today. They have the word of Yah, they are the holders of salvation. As you can see from scripture ISRAEL HASN'T BEEN CAST AWAY OR REPLACED. Israel has to know who they are, they have to be taught about the covenant we made with Yah, Israel has to know the truth first.


There is a certain doctrine being preached by the unlearned, that states the Gentiles can't receive salvation. This is not so, as we have already seen from scripture ALL MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN WHO PARTAKE OF THE COVENANT WILL BE SAVED. The coming in of the other nations is a process. Yah is dealing with scattered lost Israel first, and then the other nations. If the Gentiles couldn't come to Yah, then why is there a need for Israel? But we know that the Gentiles who except Yah and Yahshuah will be fellow heirs to the Kingdom.
Jeremiah 16:19 O Yah, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.

The Gentiles and other nations can receive salvation, but first they must go through the process. They have to be brought in by an Israelite, they can't reject the truth about who Israel is and think they can get salvation. The majority of the world's religions reject the truth about US being Israel and they reject the fact that the only way they can obtain eternal life is if they are taught the truth by a Yah ordained Hebrew Israelite.

John 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

The door that Yahshuah is speaking of is the "process" of gaining salvation. You have to come through him to get to the father. In order to get to Yahshuah you have to come through Israel. Yahshuah only dealt with Israel when he walked the earth, and that's the process today. The Gentiles have to come through the door to get salvation from Yah, he has not left them out. But if they climb up another way, or try to get salvation through these false religions, Yahshuah said they are a thief and robber. Remember Israel first then the other nations,


1. YAH ________ 2. YAHSHUAH








We've read the book of Acts chapter 10 which details the "conversion" of the Gentile Cornelius. The scripture says Cornelius feared Yah the Holy one of Israel. Yah sent Cornelius to an ordained Israelite, so he could be taught fully about him. To the righteous Gentiles who are reading this, and have had their eyes and hearts open to the truth. The story of Cornelius is a great example for you to follow, Cornelius had all the criteria that Gentiles who believe in Yah, and Yahshuah should emulate. First you have to love Israel, it is impossible to love Yah or Yahshuah if you have hatred in your heart for his people. Next you have to believe Yah is, then he will lead you to a righteous ordained Israelite who will teach you what you ought to know.

You have to come to Israel to be taught about Yah, not just any Israelite but those who are the righteous Messianic remnant, Yah will lead you to them. Cornelius treated Israel well as the scripture states to us:

Acts 10: 22 And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth YAH, and of good report among all the nation of the Israelites, was warned from YAH by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.

So as was stated you as a Gentile can't have any secret hated for Israel, you must have love for this people. The same love you have for Yah and Yahshuah is the same love you must have for True Israel, so-called African Americans. You as a Gentile can be grafted into the family of Yah, and become part of the commonwealth of Israel. You must follow the laws Yah gave to Israel through the mouth of his servant Moses.

Lev 24:22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am Yah your holy one.

You must do as Cornelius did, he was sent to an Israelite, not a Christian, Muslim or Jewish person but true Israel. I don't want to sound like a broken record, I've mention many times that you must come through Israel in order to get salvation. I continue to say this because this is very important for any Man, Woman or Child who wants to be saved.

Gentiles can't boast against Israel, as many do today, this is one reason why the Gentiles can't understand prophecy. The majority of prophecy in scripture is related to Israel, if you don't know Israel then you can't understand those prophecies. Paul spoke about the Gentiles being grated in and boasting against Israel. Lets read what he says:

ROMANS 11:13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:
14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.

15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

16 For if the first fruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

17 And if some of the branches be broken off (TRUE ISRAEL), and thou, being a wild olive tree (GENTILES), wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off (FALSE DOCTRINE OF ISRAEL BEING CAST AWAY), that I might be grafted in.

20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: (PAUL IS TELLING YOU, IF YOUR FAITH SEEMS STRONGER THAN SOME AMONG ISRAEL, DON'T THINK YOU ARE BETTER, BUT BE WISE AND FEAR YAH)21 For if YAH spared not the natural branches (WICKED ISRAEL), take heed lest he also spare not thee. (IF HE DIDN'T SPARE THOSE WICKED ISRAELITES, WHAT DO YOU THINK HE WILL DO TO YOU)22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of YAH: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for YAH is able to graft them in again.

24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? (IF YAH IS ABLE TO BRING IN GENTILES, HE IS ABLE TO BRING THOSE TRUE ISRAELITES WHO FELL BACK INTO THEIR, HISTORY, HERITAGE AND PROMISES,)

25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. (DON'T THINK YAH IS NOT GOING TO AWAKEN THOSE ISRAELITES WHO HAVE THE SPIRIT OF SLUMBER AND BLINDERS ON)

Paul's message to the gentiles in this chapter is don't think just because Yah has granted you understanding, that Israel is no more good and you are in their place. You can't boast against Israel, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN YOU MIGHT ASK? It simply means that you as a Gentiles, can't think you are higher and mightier than true Israel, just because you have a little knowledge. You may know a little Hebrew, know the true names of the Father and Son, all this is good, but you can't make yourself better than Israel, you have been grated in, Israel has been born into this. They are the natural tree branches.

It's obvious that the righteous Israelites of Paul's day were having a problem with the Gentiles believing that Yah had done away with Israel and replaced them. The Gentiles can only be brought in through Israel, Israel can only bring the Gentiles in when they know what they are suppose to do. The truth is to Israel first, then the Gentile. The question must be answered.


You must do the same thing as Cornelius, continue to Fear Yah, continue to learn Yah's truth from an ordained Israelite, keep his laws and commandments and love Israel. To my Israelite brethren you must never turn away a Gentile who is seeking the truth. one who has his heart and mind open. Yah said never to call any man common or unclean, even though we must seek out that remnant among Israel, there will be Gentiles whom Yah will awakened in the process who he will send to you to be taught, just as he did with Cornelius. You must teach him; this is your job, this is your reason for being chosen. Yah will awaken the rest of the Gentiles in their season, but some will be brought in now. I don't want to confuse anyone, so let me get make this plain.

YES, gentiles will be brought in and will become the commonwealth (CITIZENS) of Israel,
They will partake of the promises and the covenants, those who obey Yah's voice will receive eternal life. But the process that Yah has ordained is, those Gentiles and others will be brought in and taught by his servants, priest, children, and people, Israel.

We can't teach anyone anything if they don't know we are Israel. This is why Yah is awakening and dealing with Israel first. This is our season to come in, but in the process Yah will bring in some Gentiles. Israel first, then the nations.





As a person who has lived i... (Below threshold)

As a person who has lived in Florida and still has relatives living there I would not trust the election officials one way or the other in that state still. But this year, it's not going to come down to who wins Florida. There are many who still feel this is going to come down to race as most of White America may say they will vote Obama but when they get in that booth they will turn coat and vote their race. Many keep saying Blacks are voting their race but the truth be told most are just voting Dem as they normally do, they are just more inspired now because there is a Black Dem. candidate. Obama will probably lose because Whites will more readily vote their race. But if Obama wins then this will send a message around the world that America has truly moved to a place where as a whole we don't judge people by the color of their skins. Obama clearly can not win without a large White vote and seriously, what's the likelyhood of the really happening in America?

White America's attitude is "we've shown that we are advancing by allowing him to get this far, but enough is enough." Just look at the best case scenario for Obama - with Whites making up 70% of the population, Hispanics 13, Blacks 12 and others 5, Obama would be lucky to get 35% of Whites to vote for him giving him 24.5% of the total population and assuming he gets 85% of Black votes, and 50% and 80% of Hispanic and other votes respectively that would give him 10.2, 6.5 and 4 percent of the the remaining populatoin for a grand total of 45.2 percent of the vote with McCain garnering 54.8 percent of the vote. So as much as I am hoping that Obama will pull this off it would take a miracle of Biblical proportions for him to win this election considering that Whites will more than likely vote along racial lines.

America just hasn't advanced to the place where race doesn't matter to most of White America. Without regard as to who is most qualified given a choice between a Black and White doctor, most Whites will choose the White doctor. Given a choice between a Black and White lawyer, most Whites will choose a White lawyer. Given a choice between a Black or White contractor to build their home, they will choose the White contractor. Given a choice between a White or Black presidential candidate, they will pick the White one. I would venture to say if there were irrefutable evidence that Jesus Christ had all the physical attributes of a Black Man, church attendance by Whites would drop dramatically simply from the thought they were worshipping a "Black" God.

I truly believe Obama is the best choice for America and it's future, but Most of (not all) of White America will choose along racial lines. McCain, using the G.W. Bush playbook of politics knows that for most of White America all you have to do is create a little doubt about your opponent and they will vote your way. I pray that I'm wrong but on November 5th America will be looking at swearing in the oldest U.S. President in our history and the the least knowledgeable Vice-President in history who will happen to be a female.

So why would we think that we will will be better without Obama in office. Bush, a Republican, KILLED our economy. Bush is rich so he doesn't care. We still have racism in america so white people aren't going to vote for Obama, even if they are democrats. Listen, JFK said we will have a black president 40 years ago and see what he did to our country, before he was killed by a another stupid person. Your 401k is trashed now because of the Republican's. Stock market is a joke because of the Republican's. We are supposed to be the a great country and every one looks at us for help and follows us. I went to Canada and they are the smart country, because there isn't black, white, asian, or any other kind of people there. They are all Canadians. That's how we should be in america. If you are born in america, then you are a american. We should be happy that we are going to have a black president. He will be a great president and our economy will get get back to normal. Back to the war thing..... Shouldn't we have the person that order the planes into the twin towers by now? Wasn't he the one that killed those people in New York? Didn't Bush get his family out of america when that happened? Oh, I get it, he's was trying to finish what his dad could since Clinton won. You guys are LOSERS. Get the facts and TRUST GOD.

And Republicans continued to show a traditional strength, leading 50 percent to the Democrats' 30 percent in the 1.2 million absentee ballots already returned.

Conducted Oct. 25-27, the Los Angeles Times poll gave Obama a 50-47 lead overall in Florida. Only a tiny fraction of the Florida respondents reported voting early, leaving McCain's lead subject to a wide margin of error. A Quinnipiac University poll, released Wednesday, showed early voters favoring Obama 58-34, another small sample with a potentially wide margin of error."

So it looks like Obama is leading in early voting, but McCain has a strong advantage among absentee votes.

Obama and the times we are living in remind me of the antichrist spoken of in the bible. I was shocked to see someone saying praise God and saying they were voting for Obama. The man proclaimed to be a Muslim then corrected himself to Christian in a interview. I would think that if you were a Christian you would remember that don't you? He is for abortion up to the very last minute. He is for homosexual marriage and this woman is saying Praise God. Sick sick sick. Well it's the world we live in I guess it's to be expected. I wonder how many more terrorist friends he(Obama)will have after the election if he wins? I guess from what I can see if he is the Antichrist the 7 year tribulation will not begin until he becomes the world leader. I am sitting back to see what unfolds. The masses love him.

You people are so ignorant. Does it really matter if his father was Muslim? How can he be Muslim, if at the same time he attends the church that Rev. Jeremiah Wright preaches at? That's a contradictory statement, and that doesn't really matter anyways.. because not every Muslim is a terrorist! "Palling around with Terrorists".. Ayers - Chicago Citizen of the Year a few years back, and a highly regarded Professor at the University of Chicago. The NEW terrorist that Palin pulled out of her ass, Rashid Khalidi, is a Professor that her running mate John McCain gave $500,000 to a couple years back. What a coincidence.. that's when Obama and Khalidi were friends. Palin needs to go back to Alaska and blow up a Moose with dynamite or whatever she does for fun up there.

I agree that this is probably a scare tactic to drive out the Obama voters.

Still, it's hard to believe that a poll of random voters managed to reflect EXACTLY the percentages of voters.

Did they poll exactly 54 percent Democrats and 30 percent Republicans? Hmmm?

That still leaves 12 percent unaccounted for. So who are they voting for?

Really, unless the Times puts up a correlation between Registration and actual Vote, this poll is crap.

As a Jew, I was terrified by a comment made by Sarah Palin at a rally in which "Joe the Plumber" was a featured guest.

"With his shaved head, jeans, and steel toed boots, he's OUR kind of guy right?" said Palin to a resounding cheer from
the overwhelmingly WASP crowd. (At which point I cringed for her husband, Todd who is nothing like Joe the Plumber).

In what country are shaved heads, certain brands of jeans and especially steel toed boots not associated with radical
Neo-Nazi skinheads? And how do you suppose those Neo-Nazi skinheads feel about Jews, African-Americans, Catholics, and anyone else who does not fit the narrow description of a
"real" American according to the right wing conservatives?

McCain/Palin is a vote for those who despise us. Remember this: they protect Israel for Christianity, NOT Judaism.

I Dont believe Florida will matter. This election will be a land slide and I do believe tha many media outlets are trying to sway voters to feel the fear. Who wants to vote for a loser. So, most of your Rebels for McCain are wasting your votes. Heres the facts. McCain will be to old to understand the youth of america. We all know it takes a second term to really see any results. It's funny how much the country has become divided over the race issue , just because one of the candidates is a black man. Well, for that black man, and all the others, the division has always been there. If Obama doesnt win, he'll just run again.

Its on... But, heres the funny thing. The economy has not been great for any race of people. If your thinking McCain is going to help your world, the go ahead and waste your vote. lol....

The day this happens is the day I leave this country for good. Because it will no longer be the country that I know. I respect the members of our military, and I am beyond grateful for what they do for us, but under no circumstances should it be a 'requirement' for any public office.

Just because we've been warmongering for the last 8 years doesn't mean that's all this country needs.

What exactly about military experience yields a leader that can guide our country on issues as diverse as energy independence, foreign diplomacy, domestic social issues, and economic growth?

So let me get this straight... We are facing the biggest financial crisis since the great depression, your buddy gw has ran up the biggest deficit in the history of the country, and YOU are HAPPY that McLame is using MORE public funds? And for a POLITICAL campaign no less... And here I thought that the term "neocon" meant neo-conservative... Never realized it meant neo-contradictionist. He (McLame) agreed to only use public funds because he KNEW he stood NO CHANCE of raising the kind of money he needed to defeat Obama. Suppose that has anything to do with current leadership? Hmmmmm. I am GLAD that Obama refused the public funds for his campaign, that is money better used elsewhere.

Don't be too distraught come Nov. 4th... Even your world might just get a little bit better. It's ok, no thanks required.

And of course, we should keep in mind that Florida has the most corrupt election officials in the United States.

Remember that Karl Rove, the sleaze king, is working for McCain now.

Remember the hanging chads? an issue invented for the 2000 election.

Remember that the Supreme Court, on a 5-4 Republican vote, suspended the 2000 recount on the 36th day on no legal basis whatsoever, when unofficial results of the recount showed that Gore was winning.

Remember the box of 5,000 cast ballots that was found in a Fountaineblue Hotel room taken by a Bush election staffer after the 2000 election.

Remember Republican Secretary of State Harris who threw out 18,000 voter registrations, all Democratic.

Remember Republican Governor Jebb Bush who called out the National Guard, who set up road blocks in West Palm Beach to discourage Democrat voters.

Remember that ABC, CBS, NBC and the rest of the media called the 2000 election for Kerry, based on the vote in Florida?

Remember that in 2000 Florida the post-vote polling showed Gore winning?

Remember that ABC, CBS, NBC, and the other media called the Florida vote, and the election, for Gore?

And why is it that still, after the scandals of prior elections, we still have Diebold and other automatic election machines that have already been reported to flip votes, drop votes, fail to record votes?

This happens, because elections are a struggle for power. Honesty is weakness. Cheating, tricks, stealing, lies -- all just tools to win.

The alternative is no election. So elections, for all their corruptness and failure, are better than dictatorship or civil war.

BE ENCOURAGED that America HAS come far enough to elect a black man President. The whole of the country is NOT the racist south of years gone by.

Either way you plan to vote, the lesson you need to learn here is, don't trust the polls. But to quote the very reason McCain's going to lose: "You can put lipstick on a pig - and it's still a pig." Now let Sen. McCain retire with some grace, and send that lame, cliche-spewing wannabe homecoming queen numbskull back to lovely Alaska. I hear it's cold up there this time of year.

Trying to seize on Hillary Clintons' popularity after she was left off of the Democratic ticket was one... no... THE worst blunder of John McLame's political career. Being the governor of one of the 5th lowest populated states in the country does not qualify you to be Vice-President, one failed heartbeat from being in charge of the greatest nation in the world. Barack Obama has more intellectual fortitude in one finger than Sara Failin has in her entire being. God help you and everybody else if she were to ever be put in a position to run this country.
Barack Obama's progressive thinking and ideology (you follow my meaning there, right?) is exactly what is needed in this country, and have faith... it is coming. No more empirical bushites or neo-cons.
And by the way, the whole "vote early and vote often" thing is nothing more than tired ancient rhetoric. Get over it. (You understand rhetoric, right?)

The truth is even if he wins, Biden will president because we all know that obama will be assonated, these are the facts and if you have a brain in that head of yours you know it's going to happen before he even steps foot into the Whitehouse. Who wants a racist president who claims to be full black because he hates his white side? Who wants a racist first lady who says this is the first time she's proud of her country? she can't stand white people. They both sat in a racist church for over 20 years, had their racist preacher marry them and baptize their kids. They let their kids hear this bastard preaching racism, but what really surprises me is that whites are voting for him. Do you think black people would vote for McCain if he went to KKK meetings for 20 years? heck no. For you whites to vote for this idiot, you have to be the dumbest in the world. For blacks to vote for this idiot, they are racist too and are just voting because he has some black in him. Wake up America and Vote McCain/Palin or we are all doomed. WARNING WARNING WARNING!

Keep Palestinians and Muslims out of your dirty race you Racist pigs. The PLO is a legitimate "liberation" organization striving to liberate the Israeli-occupied Palestinian land. You dumm Republicans are looking at the world from your rear-views and have your facts and ethics switched around. Republicans are racist/traitors sob's that will do anything to kiss Israeli asses. This really makes me wonder if they are running for presidency to serve America or to serve Israel? Isn't it enough that we are in Iraq on behalf on Israel to terminate their old-time nemesis?. We have stretched our ethics too far and we have put Israeli interests ahead of ours until we lost our ethical, economical and political leadership in the world....enough is enough. We hope that "CHANGE" will not only be limited to the economy and health care, but also our screwed -up foreign policy should be re-evaluated in order to do whats best for America, not Israel. Change = Foreign interest lobbies "AIPAC" out of D.C..........peace.

"Of course I have foreign policy experience... I am the governor of Alaska, and we are right next door to Russia" (Paraphrase)
You are NOT seriously asking that question, are you? (section edited) I salute your blissful ignorance in the complete and utter lack of qualifications possesed by your candidates' running mate. Trying to seize on Hillary Clintons' popularity after she was left off of the Democratic ticket was one... no... THE worst blunder of John McLame's political career. Being the governor of one of the 5th lowest populated states in the country does not qualify you to be Vice-President, one failed heartbeat from being in charge of the greatest nation in the world. Barack Obama has more intellectual fortitude in one finger than Sara Failin has in her entire being. God help you and everybody else if she were to ever be put in a position to run this country.
Barack Obama's progressive thinking and ideology (you follow my meaning there, right?) is exactly what is needed in this country, and have faith... it is coming. No more empirical bushites or neo-cons.
And by the way, the whole "vote early and vote often" thing is nothing more than tired ancient rhetoric. Get over it. (You understand rhetoric, right?)

Obama/Biden... Coming to your Presidency in 5 days!


You did not answer the question I asked. What has Obama done that makes him the most qualified to be PRESIDENT? Has he ever been in charge of 35,000 people that work for him and has he ever had to deal with a 50+ billion dollar budget? Has he ever been in charge of any military forces?
Being a Governor is the equivilent of being in charge of a small country. Obama has progressive thinking and ideology? Well, if that is all it takes then I am qualifed. To use this analogy (do you know the definition of that term?), a deck seaman with 4 years in the Navy is not qualified to be the Chief of Naval Operations.

On the good side, they'll get a close-up examination of the "Law of Unintended Consequences' if Obama wins. If he doesn't, they can hang onto their 'reality-based' worldview a while longer, and morph their BDS into MPDS.

Every governor is the most qualified to perform the duties of the president. The problem with this election is that we have two presidential candidates who are not governors but senators. McCain is the most experienced senator and he has an experienced governor on his ticket.

@JEN... *wink*@Mike.... (Below threshold)

@JEN... *wink*
@Mike... You get no response until you learn to use proper english, and then actually do so.
@retirednavy...Obviously you mean "False analogy" when you say "analogy" right? Let me try to explain... I will even try to use your example...
(Premise) A "navy deck seaman with 4 years in the Navy is not qualified to be the Chief of Naval Operations."
(statement) A navy deck seaman should never try to rise above his current rank because he is not qualified.
(conclusion) navy deck seamen will never be qualified to become chief of naval operations.
Do you see how the conclusion does not follow from the premise? It is called false analogy and is nothing more than pure basic logic.
Now, if you are attempting to compare Sara Failin; who was mayor of Wasilla (pop. 12ish... 8 were from her church and voted for her, the other 4 voted for her opponent) and then became Governor of Alaska approximately two years ago (check educational, religious, and public service records, as well as ethical conduct and lack of, since assuming that office ) and, last I checked, the Governor of a State only exercises control over the National guard troops in said State during times of PEACE, in which we have NOT BEEN since she took office... with the record of Barack Obama, you will see that your attempt at analogy does not hold.
Barack Obama: Graduate HARVARD LAW school, field of expertise, CONSTITUTIONAL LAW; spent several years after college working in community outreach and public service (experience with public issues and ethics) before running for state senate (control or influence over large budget matters) and then moving forward to become a Senator for his country, thereby giving him influence over decisions regarding an entire NATIONS' budget and military operations.
Another point I would like to make... I don't want the same old "good 'ol boy network" that has been in control of our country for far too long. Being a retired military man you can surely see how our nation has been tarnished by the policies we unilaterally impose on the rest of the world. I want to be able to travel the world and not be scorned, looked down on, or worse. I want to hold my head high and say HELL YES I AM FROM AMERICA... these days that might just get an American killed.
Progressive thinking, FRESH ideology of what it means to be an American, restoration of Dignity and Respect throughout the world for our country and citizens... thats' what I want.
I respect John McCain for what he did as a veteran, especially in the time of war in which he served this country, make no mistake. However, his time to aspire to the Nations' highes office has come and gone and I am left to question his judgement in major decisions due to his selection of Sara Palin as a running mate. Your own party is in disarray because of this very issue.
You EARNED your pension (disability or otherwise) enjoy it... Just make sure you distinguish between "welfare" and "tax reform", they are not one in the same.

I am sorry that you are so naive' as to believe all the smear tactics that the neocon power elite want to scare you with. Obama is no more a Muslim than you are the embodiment of Christ himself. Get yourself educated before you try to espouse knowledge of a subject for which you clearly have none.
You said "And as far as you non-believers, that's your choice. With Christ, everyone has a choice to believe or not believe. It's up to you. But what you haven't figured out yet, is that us believers know something you don't . . ."
So, what you are saying is that if I don't support McLame N Failin, then I am a non-believer, correct? Hmmmmm. Isn't it in the Bible that "Judge not, Lest ye be judged thyself"?
Let me explain something to you, and all your right wing ultra conservative christian believers...
I am a Christian. I love my God. I have only one God, who gave his only son so that I may have eternal life if only I believe in him and ask for forgiveness.
My God also gave me a body, and that body came with a BRAIN. God gave me that brain to THINK with. He wants me to THINK so that I might gain KNOWLEDGE. My God DOES NOT WANT me to follow the path of lambs to the slaughter. Your false prophet was gwb, and instead of using your God-Given MIND to THINK and MAKE DECISIONS based on KNOWLEDGE, you chose the path of the lambs. Where has that path taken you exactly? Is YOUR home foreclosed on? How is your retirement fund? What kind of a FUTURE are you leaving for your CHILDREN and GRANDCHILDREN?
What I am about to say will make me very unpopular with some of my democratic friends here (JENN forgive me...) I am NOT pro-choice, I am pro-life. But that issue ALONE is not enough to make me sacrifice all the knowledge, intelligence, and wisdom in my God-given BRAIN, that I should be led like a lamb to the slaughter. We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make dramatic changes to this country, and even the world community, if only we just act. Our society, and the world in general, deserves better than what we have now. I refuse to settle for less.

It should fun watching FL then PA, the entire south, Ohio, NH, MO, IN, WS, CO, NM, NV and many other states go for McCain. I expect it will be an early night when Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada go for McCain. My guess is Obama picks up CA, HI but Big Borther Obama could lose WA or OR.

After McCain is declared the winner when he picks up CO, NV and NM plus the entire SW and Rocky mountain states - we can sit back and watch his million Obama Kool-Aide drinking stooge party in Chicago turn into a nasty riot.

Obama has spent $700 million and he still cannot get his poll numbers above 44% in legitimate polls. What a waste of money. His brother who lives in a tin shack and aunt who lives in a slum apartment could have used a few bucks. If Obama cannot help his own family then he can never help America. Hopefully he will be deported when he fails to provide a legitimate birth certificate.

Very nice spoof added to the blog after my "faux news network" quote. The difference is that that quote WAS taken from an "actual" news source, just slightly edited. And as for the evidence thing... J. McLame couldn't and/or wouldn't even give you the courtesy of discussing details of ANY of his plans for the troubles our country is facing right now in the last debate... all he did was swing an axe at barack Obama... and woefully so. Barack, unfettered by the assault, eloquently and convincingly explained IN DETAIL what he would do if elected. He didn't engage in McLames' games, he stayed on-topic. How refreshing. Mind you, he could have EASILY fallen into the tit-for-tat game that McLame was trying to draw him into, he simply refused. Explain to me what it is that J.McLame will do to better this country besides continue the good 'ol boy policies and politics of the failed gwb administration. I personally have had enough of the "rich get richer, poor get poorer" policies of the republicant party, with corporate welfare and tax breaks for the very richest of Americans. We are ALL Americans, not "Americans" and "lower-class Americans". I would like for you to explain to me what exactly it is that a C.E.O. does for a company that makes him/her deserve a salary 240 times more than the average worker. The disparity between the "haves" and the "have nots'" is apalling.
For the record, I am NOT an Obama campaign worker/volunteer/associate of any kind. I am simply a concerned American who is tired of seeing all the fearmongering, lies, and hate that is being spread by the McLame n Failin ticket. America should be more concerned by the extreme lack of judgement and lack of regard for this country shown by McLame when he chose Sara Failin as his running mate. How irresponsible... Your very own party has admitted that she is not qualified for the V.P. job, much less the big office. He was more concerned about trying to win the election than the well being of the very country he wants to run. Sick. Have you seen, btw, that he is now having to robocall and run comercial ads in his OWN STATE because it is being called now a "statistical dead heat"? How's that workin' out for ya... his own state doesn't support him.... And you want US to? Please.
@jubadoobai you do realize that that nut has been cracked, right? Please do try to keep up or we will leave you behind like J.McLames' Presidential aspirations.

Douglas, you aren't fooling... (Below threshold)
Professor Jane:

Douglas, you aren't fooling anyone. You are just spitting out what you've been told/paid to. Its very obvious.

For example, trying to blame McCain for any financial trouble now is the standard Democratic/Obama party line.

Do you know what the the Glass-Steagall Act is? Of course you dont. But you will after you look it up. Here, I'll make it simple for you.

Basically it was (yes, WAS) put in place to avoid the EXACT thing that has happened to the banking sector. Clinton repealed it near the very end of his term. Could have vetoed it, but no. (A setup for Hillary to walk into the whitehouse when the sh*t hit the fan. But she didn't get the nom. Sorry, thats likely too much info for you to digest.)

If you ask the ones that pay you to post your crap I'm sure they'll have some standard spins for you to reply with on it about how it was massaged over the years.

But the bottom line is it was Clinton that caused the financial mess, due to deregulation of the banking industry HE CREATED. It just took a while to get bad enough.

It was SPECIFICALLY put in place to avoid risky loans being a 'valuable asset', a commodity, per se. You know... keeping Banks and Investment Banks separate? Sorry. Again you dont know or understand. Thats not an insult. I'm just pointing it out.

So, lets review, Clinton repealed it.

Oh, it was put in place in 1933 by the way. For a reason.

You may be a concerned American, but its obvious all you are concerned about is getting a handout from Obama.

Obama may win. But if he does, someday you will be sorry. Very, very sorry.

Wow! There certainly is so... (Below threshold)

Wow! There certainly is some vitriol floating about on All Hallows Eve. Look, the left can try blaming Bush for the current economic downturn and my side can try pinning it all on Dodd and Barney Frank and the Clinton repeal of Glass-Steagall. The fact is that the underlying problem is that we have had a 28 year spending and borrowing binge as a nation and as individuals. WE THE PEOPLE, through our elected representatives and in our personal finances have been grossly irresponsible and we have placed our prosperity and our liberty in grave danger as a result. The solution? STOP THE DAMN SPENDING. We have GOT to start living within our means. I disagree with John McCain on more than a few things but the most intelligent thing I've heard this political season is a proposed freeze on spending. And yes, I opposed the the "bailout". What truly mystifies me about the left is how they came to the conclusion that making fellow citizens dependent on government handouts is a good idea or why taxing some at higher rates than others isn't just thievery. And for those of you extolling the wonders of an Ivy League education, I can tell you from personal experience that some of the lamest, incompetent twits you would hope to never meet have extensive Ivy League credentials on their CVs (that's a resume for you non-physicians). I personally had to fire one who could recite page and chapter of a reference but who couldn't actually treat a patient to save his life (or theirs). So, beware of excessive paeans to Harvard briliance.

@"professor" Jane, Don't you DARE attempt to insult my intelligence. First of all, as stated earlier, I DO NOT represent, volunteer for, get paid by or otherwise solicit for the Obama team. I do, however, WISH I did. I am not TRYING to blame the McLame n Failin ticket for the economic disaster we are currently experiencing. I am saying that they will not SOLVE IT, but CONTINUE the current administrations' failed economic policies. Which news outlet would you like me to QUOTE FROM when J. McLame said in a campaign speech that "our economy is sound" even as the stock market was falling apart? Hell, in 2007 (September) he went so far as to ADMIT that he "didn't know as much about the economy as he should" and yes that is a quote from J. McLain HIMSELF. I will find and post it for you if you doubt me. Our Nation experienced the most economic growth and all around prosperity under Bill Clinton since the Post-Depression era. He balanced the budget, people had jobs, incomes rose, the market was booming. What happened? gwb and you left wing neocon warmongering chickenhawks STOLE the election in 2000, and gwb was allowed to pursue the very agenda that his father FAILED TO COMPLETE. The war in Iraq? What a joke. Cheney wanted in for the oil,(for Haliburton, of course) gwb wanted to "avenge his father" by taking out Sadam Hussein, and Osama Bin Laden was all the reason they needed. The problem is... Osmam wasn't in IRAQ... He was in AFGHANISTAN. But you sheeple just followed right along, buying the republicants' rhetoric all the way. and you question ME? GET A GRIP.
You know, you seem to me like the epitome (you know what that means right?) of what is so very wrong in this country. A typical republicant just like McLame and Failin... You know why? You come on this blog knowing not THING ONE about me, and proceed to attack me. Why? Because you are losing. and you can't handle losing, you can't speak intelligently about WHY Barack Obama should not be elected or, better yet, WHY McLame SHOULD BE... So what are you left with? Paltry attempts to banter supporters of your competition. You are probably the one who is getting paid by the republicants, or McLame, or some other P.A.C.
Here's a thought... Have your V.P. candidate come out and say SOMETHING, ANYTHING INTELLIGENT. YOU are the one who should be scared... God help you if she were to ever have to assume power in the White House. You can kid yourself all you like about her, but you KNOW DEEP DOWN INSIDE she is nowhere near qualified. Your own party is finally saying it publicly. Fatalist thinking, and looking for a scapegoat. Scapegoat hell, she should have NEVER been on the ticket in the first place. A poor and very concerning decision by McLame to try to latch on to the Hillary Clinton momentum. OOPS, that didn't work out so well, did it. Seemed brilliant AT THE TIME. That, along with the countless other missteps by the McCain "team" is what will cost him the election.
As far as my "wanting a handout from Obama"... let me refer you back to the whole "attack" thing I stated earlier. You can say, or think whatever you like. You don't know me, nor anything about me. I care about this country, and the direction we have gone over these long last eight years. I worry about my children, and my grandchildren, and what a mess you republicants are gonna leave for them. I have had enough, and if typing a few lines on a blog somewhere in cyberspace makes me feel better, then that's what I'll do. If you don't like it, don't read it.
By the way, as much as I would really, really like to attack you and your character, I will refrain. as much as I would like to tell you to go [email protected]&$ yourself, I won't. So "Professor", I hope your ignorant attack of me and my character make you feel better.
Now, would you like to discuss the ISSUES? I didn't think so.

@Fred, Eloquent, int... (Below threshold)

Eloquent, intelligent post... Thank you. I will ask just one question in it's regard. (your post) Please take this with the knowledge that I understand the basic, underlying principle... Why do you feel that it is unfair to tax the wealthy at a (slightly) higher than current rate? Some people do not have the means nor personal ability to acheive great things... Does that mean that they are less deserving of a decent life in America? No one wants to fail, be unsuccessful, or downtrodden. Yet it is a reality of society. If one has the means to pay more and still not be without, why do you consider that"stealing"? I really want to understand where you are coming from on this, and I am not trying to sound like I am spewing some kind of rhetoric. Do you realize that as of 2000, the richest 10% of adults owned 85% of the worlds' wealth? (adults being not just American, but worldwide)85%! (research conducted by the World Institute for Development Economics research of the United Nations University)(source cited) that, to me, is astonishing! I guess the basic question I ask myself (usually in the context of pro sports athletes) is "when is "enough" enough"? You know what I mean? I believe that if someone is hungry, you feed them. If they are cold, give them a coat or blanket. But in the same context, try to teach him/her how to do for themselves, so that they may also feel success and pride. Everyone needs a hand now and again, who am I to not lend it when I can? I don't mean to ramble on... that's just my philosophy.

To all of you who some how ... (Below threshold)

To all of you who some how believe that those of us not willing to fall for the Socialist and that is being generous to Obama just because we happen to work for a living and won't vote him doesn't make us racists. I personally don't care what color anyone is. My husband has been called racist and had people get in his face where he works because he has defended Sarah Palin. Isn't this what the left always does? You disagree with me so you are a racist?
It means we have a different opinion. The most frightening thing about this whole country right now is the MEDIA that somehow has come to think THEY have the right to determine who is right for President and their lack of scrutiny of Obama and unrelenting, unfair attacks on Sarah Palin. And maybe you people who think SHE doesn't have experience should think about this, of all the people running only she has executive experience. A community organizer??? Give me a break, Obama is nothing more than a product of the corrupt Chicago political machine.
I am not a racist I am a capitalist and an American and a Christian who believes that in the sancity of life, the right for me to keep what I earn and that the constitution is right and that judges should not legislate from the bench.

One thing to remember polling can be wrong but then I think that many people simply say Obama when asked so that no one will accuse them of being racist. One huge side benefit of a so-called McCain upset is that maybe Chris Matthews and Keith Obermann will crawl back under the rocks they slimed out from and the liberal rag the New York Times with completely fold. It is now rated at junk stock status by Standard and Poors!

@J... Funny how you ... (Below threshold)

Funny how you felt the need to mention (TWICE) how you are not a racist... I didn't see anyone make that accusation. Feeling a little guilty? The hot-button word from McLame n Failin is "socialist", you follow your party line well! Can you now please show me some sort of proof that Barack Obama is a socialist? Because if not, that statement is what they call "empty rhetoric".
As far as Sara Failin is concerned, maybe you might want to ask the republicant leadership why it is, exactly, that even THEY are now admitting that she is not qualified for the V.P. job. (their words not mine)
J.McLame used no discression and very poor judgement when he chose her as a running mate, and the whole stunt has backfired because no one in the campaign realized how dumb she really is. The choice was irresponsible and dangerous to this country. Do you realize that she has almost as low an approval rating (stated in polls as like her/dislike her, qualified/not qualified) as gwb?
McLame's grasp at a political "gimmic" is as much what will cost him the election as anything else. If he wanted to seize Hillary Clintons' momentum and popularity, he should have asked her to run with him.

Obama/Biden... Coming to your Presidency in 3 days!


To Douglas, First ... (Below threshold)
Leaning left just a little:

To Douglas,

First of all, thank you. Seriously. But I'll get to that later.

1. The standard liberal spin on money is always "Clinton". Yes, the budget got balanced under Clinton. But HE didn't do it. It fell in his lap. Anyone could have done it then. Reagan made it possible by doing the exact opposite of what Obama proposes. It just didn't happen overnight. The reason what Reagan did worked was.... oh hell, you'd never understand.

2. You need evidence Obama is a socialist? Thats another standard liberal comeback. He said it himself when he said he wants to spread the wealth around. He even explained it by saying he would take more from those that have it and give to those HE feels should have more. AND, the government will decide who gets what. There is no better definition of socialism than that. And again, that is the exact opposite of what Reagan did. Why dont you get that? Oh yeah. We know.

3. Since you are someone who obviously has not lived long enough to understand how things really work, it would be a smart move on your part for you to stop making a fool of yourself and your comrades who support Obama. You can do that by stopping to try to cripple America by begging for 'free money' from the government via the business that employs you and/or the guy next door. You really are making the choice of McCain so much more clear with your senseless rants.

4. Because I'm very concerned about staying in Iraq too long (I think about 90% of those troops should be moved to near the Pakistan border IMMEDIATELY) I was undecided till I saw your posts. Its just not possible that someone (you) could have those thoughts and positions on their own and actually function very well at all in this world. You HAVE to be getting paid to write those things. Since Obama feels its necessary to pay people to spread propaganda like that, I'm voting McCain. So, thank you.

@Leaning left just a little... (Below threshold)

@Leaning left just a little... I am not even sure why I am responding to your post. As I stated earlier, I do not work for/get paid by the Obama campaign. As far as not living long enough... I am a 40 year old white, upper middle class male... not that that should make any difference whatsoever.
Your comments on good ol' Ronnie boy explain to me exactly where you are coming from, and exactly where this great country is NOT going back to. You are no different than all these other neocon rightwing extremists, and what you are sadly failing to realize is that WE THE PEOPLE (remember that? I'm sure your version is something more like... WE THE WEALTHY, WHITE, CHRISTIAN...) Along with most of the rest of the world, are tired of you and your likes. You fear change because "change" will tear down your ideology of repression and hate. It will allow the ordinary citizen to realize the AMERICAN dream, and no longer be held down by the wealthy power elite.
Your point about Obama's comments on "spreading the wealth around" is completely taken out of context, typical of the republicant party whom you so fervently espouse. Spreading the wealth, taken in context, is simply taxing the very most wealthy americans at a tax rate that gwb lowered to appease his masters. approximately 3%... But you greedy republicants seem to think that this will somehow put you into the poor house. Try really living in a shoes of someone who lives on 15 or 20 thousand dollars a year. TRY IT. Screw you and your "I'm gonna get mine and f%@k everyone else" mentality. THIS is the HEART of why Obama will win. Ordinary people are sick of people like you, and the longer you try to hold them down, the harder you will fall when they rise up... Just you wait and see.
As far as you attacking me personally, do you think I give the first f%@k what you think about me? You don't know me, you don't know my philosophy in life, you know nothing of me. So judge all you want, you will be judged someday too. I know where I will stand in judgement. If flaming me makes you feel better, it just goes to show the kind of person you truly are.
Get yourself an education and then maybe you will understand things like sociology and how societies work. Until then, don't keep repeating all the crap your parents taught you when you were young... Times have changed since then. Keep up, please.
When Obama wins, and this country begins to turn around, you will see the error of your ways. Until then, good luck.

Obama/Biden... Coming to your Presidency in 3 days!


P.S.I would be PROUD... (Below threshold)

I would be PROUD to work for the Obama campaign... So any of you who think I do, please feel free to forward my content/comments to them.
I would promptly send my resume'.

more republican fatalist attacks... Typical of the republican party overall. You should be proud.
Get a grip.

Obama/Biden... Coming to your Presidency in 3 days!

Douglas, first of all, I'm ... (Below threshold)

Douglas, first of all, I'm voting for Obama so dont jump all over me. Dude, nothing was taken out of context. Everyone saw and heard what he said to 'Joe the plumber'. You are a blathering idiot. Second, its more than obvious that "Leaning" is very well educated. Likely much more than you. The educated have a certain way with their words and presentation. Simply compare your post to his, for example. And if you fail to recognize that he/she is likely more educated, you are powerless to defend that you are smarter. In either case you still look like a fool.

Mark, I do not "jump... (Below threshold)

I do not "jump all over" anyone until I am personally attacked or falsely accused of something by someone who simply does not know what they are speaking about. If you had/care to read up the posts, you will see that I have been accused several times of being an Obama campaign operative. Mind you, I would be honored, however, it is simply not true. If you were to read the posts that draw the reaction I have posted on here, you might just agree with my position. I resent your name calling. The "Joe the plumber" comments HAVE been taken out of context, and I can post proof if you like. That makes me a blathering idiot? Hardly.
If you feel that "leaning" is more educated than me, fine. You have an opinion just like everyone else. My guess is that he/she didn't finish thoughts/statements in a poorly veiled attempt to make him/her look intelligent, and me bad. I post here from the heart, with thought to what I say, and claims that I can substantiate. Most here spew rhetoric that they picked up in some campaign ad or speech. I verify stories before I post "facts". Do 99% of the other posters here even bother to do a "smidge" of research before coming on here and blasting me? I think not.
I am glad that you are voting for Obama, however I feel that it is unfortunate that you would turn to name calling based on one post made in response to a post that was nothing more than a personal attack by another McCain supporter.
Doesn't the insinuation that all Obama supporters are just "looking for a handout from the government" bother you? 'Cause that's what he/she said... and that's just pure republican rhetoric from source to mouth. You may not be moved to actively support Obama, your vote is what is most important; I refuse to stand by while lies and fearmongering go on unabated. Maybe you don't understand, but then again, you don't know me either.

Obama/Biden... Coming to your Presidency in 3 days!


Douglas, since it's not pos... (Below threshold)

Douglas, since it's not possible for you to 'prove' that the Joe the plumber comments were taken out of context (again, everyone heard what he said) and not only are you standing by the claim they were taken out of context, but you are stating you could prove it, I agree, you must be working for the Obama camp to make such statements. I had also heard it was happening in blogs but did not belive it till now. And due to my high moral standards I refuse to be a part of that type of campain. Therefore I am switching my vote to McCain. Obama may still win of course. But since this is the type of activity he will stoop to to get elected, I shudder to think what else he may do. Obviously he is a very flawed individual and if he wins, history will eventually show he was an unbelievable mistake for this country.

@Mark, If you think ... (Below threshold)

If you think for even a second that I believed you when you said you were voting for Obama then it is truly not I that should be regarded as the fool. I knew exactly what your game was. I, however, do not mask my posts with falsehoods and lies like most of you neocon right wing nut jobs do. I no longer care if you want to accuse me of working for the Obama campaign. Like I said, forward my posts and I will be more than happy to send my resume'.
as far as "proving" the claim that the comment was taken out of context, Barack Obama has clearly stated for the record that the tax increase he seeks on the wealthy is simply to restore the tax rate that was in effect when President Bill Clinton was in office. That amounts to a WHOPPING 3% increase. Don't believe me?... Look it up. But, alas, you won't... because you republicants don't do research. You just spew party lines. Learn the facts, it may be enlightening. It's amazing how you sheeple just follow the flock... Ever wonder what it's like to actually think for yourself? The sad truth is, probably not.

Obama/Biden... Coming to your Presidency in 2 days!


Wow Douglas you sure are in... (Below threshold)

Wow Douglas you sure are insecure! And slow! If you believe anything about his tax proposal after he made the mistake of actually using the words of spread the wealth around, then you're an even bigger fool than your posts imply.

Those words negate anything in print about his proposals, and anything said before or after. Those words stand by themselves. We understand that people like you dont get that. But he knows that too. And thats why Obama may win. People like you just dont catch on till its too late. (Remember Carter?) He's counting on that.

I'm sure you'll have some comeback because you are so insecure and immature that you care what people you dont even know think about you. How do I know I'm right about that? Because I'm also smart enough to be voting for the right guy.

Go ahead, prove us wrong. Or, prove how dumb and insecure you are by making another post in your usual flopping around on the floor temper-tantrum, gimme yours entitlement style.

So This looks like it is go... (Below threshold)

So This looks like it is going to be a repeat of the stolen 2000 and 2004 elections...Learn from your mistakes..Spread the "voting results" propaganda before the votes have even been counted...u neo-cons slay me.


@MacDoc...I'll make ... (Below threshold)

I'll make this short, sweet, and to the point.
Typical neocon republican attack. Nothing of substance to say, so say anything to attempt to discredit the opposition.
you make me laugh.

Obama/Biden... Coming to your Presidency in 1 day!
what a joke.

Again you prove my point. (... (Below threshold)

Again you prove my point. (Everyones points really.)

It wasn't a neocon Republican attack because I'm a Democrat. I'm a Democrat voting for McCain because I know whats right for America.

And nothing of substance to say? Not true at all. You proved my point again by not addressing my direct question of utmost substance: Remember Carter and what he promised, and what he actually did to America?

Thanks. I rest my case.

@macdocHmmm... Seems... (Below threshold)

Hmmm... Seems to me that if you refer back to your original post you will see that the only "question" you asked was... "remember Carter"? Now, maybe I am mistaken, or we don't speak the same dialect of english, but I sure see no question there other than "remember carter?"
It would be real easy for me to say that I am a tiger, but I am not going to eat that zebra because the population of zebras is shrinking. That makes my statement neither true, nor even plauseable. In the same manner of post as Mark, I am sure you "are" a democrat who is voting for McLame. No really, I believe you. The problem with you republicans is that you just can't seem to tell the truth. In about twenty-four hours none of this will matter and we will never communicate again. At least I will know that when I "spoke" I spoke with heart, with honesty, and with integrity. You have your empty republican rhetoric.
Good luck to you... I hope you don't take tomorrow night too hard. Someday the results of this election may even benefit you, my fellow "democrat".

Obama/Biden... Coming to your Presidency in LESS THAN 24 hours!
