    Yeah! "For" things like raising taxes, killing capitalism, taking over damned near every private business. Oh yeah that's the hoax and pain we got!

    Basically I voted for Obama because I felt he was better than the alternative. He was far from my first choice for the democratic nomination(I started posting here during the primaries, if you are curious go take alook at my early posts, especially the ones when he made the "clinging to guns and bibles" comment). The reasons you list are why I think any democratic candidate would have won. He did run on a largely positive message, and his websites issues area talked about what he was for, not against for the most part.

    I guess what I was getting at is I am not so much interested in what a politician is against except in a vague way, but I am interested in what a politician is for. If Obama's main message would have been just "Bush and McCain are bad, I am against what they did", I doubt I could have voted for him.

    Everytime I see Eric Canter, I think of the stereotypical "Chaz," the yuppie frat boy, that everybody hates, in every B rate movie ever made. You know the type. Animal House comes to mind.

    McDonnell is backed by Pat Robertson, thus the kiss of death.

    In Louisiana we have many of them who actually accuse the Republicans of not being right-wing enough. Google Charles Melancon (D-LA).

    I beg to differ. Both parties are starting to shift away from the center, and that is actually good because it would force people to take sides.
    Not everyone are sheeple. Our leaders do not dictate what we believe. When they lose elections they will figure it out and lean back to the center.

    I know who'd I like; but th at means it probably won't be the Pauls. The best thing would be if the GOP just died. We don't need two corrupt, bloated, big government parties.
