I have an idea...If Rush Limbaugh can just add 90 points to every state for McCain.....We can all stay home tomorrow!...No need to vote! :lol: (or maybe they can just get Justices Scalia & Thomas to APPOINT McCain as President!....It's been done before, & look how well THAT worked out for us all!)

I can certainly understand why people who earn more than $250,000 per year will vote for McCain, to keep the status quo......What I can't understand are the people who make far less than that but allow themselves to be duped into voting against their best interests???

I just don't get it??? :confused:

This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.
Barring an extraordinary shock, Barack Obama will win more than 270 electoral votes on Tuesday, giving him the White House. Hours before voting starts, John McCain has no clear path to reaching that same goal.


In fact, based on interviews with political strategists in both parties, election analysts and advisers to both presidential campaigns - including a detailed look at public and private polling data - an Obama victory with well over 300 electoral votes is a more likely outcome than a McCain victory.


Under the Electoral College system, a candidate wins all of a state's electoral votes as long as he or she achieves a popular vote victory of any margin. Obama's commanding position results from the fact that he holds seemingly impregnable popular vote leads in twenty-four states, plus the District of Columbia, with 291 electoral votes, more than he needs to win. Obama's geographic anchors are the northeast, the mid-Atlantic, the upper industrial Midwest and the west coast, all areas that Democratic presidential candidates have dominated for several election cycles.

I cant see how what Obama is proposing with taxes will work . Unless he gets rid of all Gov spending including the Milatary . Just not enough people above that tax bracket to allow it . By the time he get his proposal to be in place it will be people who earn 100k /year .

If you read the threads it is pretty clear there is a lot wrong, too much so to list here, but everyone is entitled to their opinion. Maybe they think Obama's birth certificate, which has been verified by the vetting process as well as factcheck.org, will somehow be found in Africa disqualifying him at the very last moment? Who the hell knows. I am glad it will be over regardless of who wins so we can all wich Bush a very happy life on his ranch in Texas. They are getting their village idiot back.

John (IWood'nCoal ) wrote this on another thread:

"I am obviously voting for McCain, but I suspect BO will win. It will be interesting to see how badly he *censored* everything up. Of course he will blame it all on the 8 years of GWB and it's lingering effects."



I think there is no person presently living on this planet who could undo the damage that GW Bush has done in the last 8 years. Whoever "wins" tomorrow will not be able to fix all the Bush disasters within 4 years. That would be impossible!

It has always been that anyone making less then 250k would not see a tax raise and anyone making under 150k would see a tax cut. That has not changed in the past couple of months from reading his tax plan.

It's what he doesn't tell you in his plan...

Letting the Bush tax plan expire = tax increases

Removing the FICA tax cap = 7.5% increase on 102K and up

Business charging more to make up for their increase = EVERYONE will pay more for goods and services.

No business can keep absorbing any more increases, some will leave, some will fold, the rest will increase their prices passing it on to the consumers. Look at GM, 2 more plants closing BUT, they're building a huge plant in Brazil.

And GM closeing two plants & other businesses cutting back or shutting is all because of a man who isn`t even elected yet or might not be. But has nothing to do with the current administration. Get real. I know it`s prpbably Jimmy Carters fault. No wonder this country is in the shape it is. I`m sorry but imo you have to a least give some thought to what your saying.
