McCain gets my vote. I don't beleive Obama will do what is necessary to keep this country safe.

I am not a big McCain fan but am quite impressed with Palin who will help balance McCain. Obama scares the daylights out of me. Obama has absolutely no accomplishments to show us as a congressman or as an attorney.

Gas prices are already way too high and Obama wants to further limit domestic exploration and production. Does anybody think this is going to make gas prices go down? We need more exploration here and especially Alaska. With McCain/Palin there is a lot better chance of that happening. One person commenting in this column wants to blame Bush for the economy but who has control of the House and the Senate - the Democrats. Jim Inhofe (Republican - Oklahoma) has made numerous proposals to encourage US production but has been opposed by the Democrats in Congress.

Obama isn't a friend to law enforcement. His black pastor sturs up racial hatred against whites. Obama publicly admires Malcolm X and other Muslim radicals. He won't even salute our own flag. I could never vote for this person.

I choose to align myself with the Republican Party, but I don't always agree with the core politics. That being said --- I'm voting for John McCain.

I think homeland security and our military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan are important issues where I side with McCain on. I just think Obama's plan to pull us out of those unstable countries and to cut our military spending/budget/troops would be a horrible blunder in this age.

Obama is a skilled speaker, no doubt, but I will trust our national security with a proven war/combat vet over a gifted orator any day.

Having read the latest two books about Obama, I can't understand how anyone would trust Barack Hussain Obama to lead our country in the right direction. He is truly a loser for America.

BOTH the 'leadership' of the republican & democratic parties are controlled at the top, by the CFR-Council on Foreign Relations..power elite globalists who put AMERICA LAST. I am voting for CHUCK BALDWIN for President (Constitution party) a friend of RON PAUL, another patriot. It is PRINCIPLE over politics.
McCain & Obama support MORE monopolized corruption, AMNESTY for illegal aliens & open borders. Go to www.nvets.org. I am a Vietnam veteran, retired deputy sheriff-LASD and retired USAF.

McCain for me. Obama can't be trusted with my firearms.

Barack Obama keeps chanting the mantra of "change" and the only "change" that he has actively indicated he's interested in is raising taxes. No civilization has ever taxed its way into prosperity, but there are plenty that have gone the other direction.

I do not believe that Obama has the background and intelligence to be the Commander In Chief of our military. As a vet and someone who has a son currently serving in Iraq this is a great concern to me.

Additionally, the next President will be appointing Supreme Court Justices and this will have the most far-reaching consequences for our country. This is an area that will directly effect those of us in law enforcement.

Obama has virtually no experience in areas that matter. Even though I don't agree with all of his policies, I believe that John McCain is the better choice for the good of the country.

I'm voting for McCain. He is as well or better qualified as any American to be President. He has all the right punches on his ticket. On the other hand, Obama seems to me to be a leftist Muslim, anti-gun, radical liberal to say the least. His VP nominee is just as bad. He has virtually no qualifications to be president. As an Illinois politician, he was in bed with many shady businessmen and politicians and accomplished nothing except to feather his nest. As a Senator from Illinois, he has done nothing and missed almost all the senate votes to date, thus robbing Illinois of its representation in the Senate. He is not even in the same ballpark as McCain. As the Native Americans would say, "He speak with forked tongue."
