    Patriot. Your judgement of Obama is more than just flawed. It obnoxious.

    This article's headline is one of the most muddled I've ever read. My remedial English students could do better.

    Perhaps the biggest challenge to Democracy is not that everybody's vote counts. But the real challenge seems to be having a mature, objective, and pragmatic voter.

    The problem is not that people have different ideas. But, that people are easily influenced by interest groups and vote according to the institutional mantra of their choice. This may be true in Liberal and Conservative camps.

    I couldn't avoid laughing about the question " How can you be a Democrat and a Christian?" I laughed because I have never been able to understand a Republican who claims to be a Christian.

    The Christ I know is one who preaches love, social justice, forgiveness, compassion, and all these principles without qualifiers. In other words a True Liberal.

    I think is better to lose and election as a wise constituency than to win as a whole mass of puppets.Regarless how painful that can be to most of society, except those handling the mental strings. Let's separate religion and government,

    I just pray that God allows us to develop to the best of our abilities, for real, and vote not based on our emotions but on our rational minds.

    I hate comments that try to portray someone as completely evil. I will never vote for Obama but that has to do with our completely different political philosophies; not with his basic nature. In fact, if I was to vote for candidates based on their basic natures, Obama would have a much better chance of winning my vote.

    As far as I can tell, he is a good husband and father. There has to be something decent about a man who takes those responsibilities seriously. He is good-humored with social skills that I think would fit in just fine with me and my friends. I'd love to shoot hoops with him sometime, a common interest he and I share. He can be very charismatic. I'm still very impressed with his speech from the 2004 Democratic convention. I didn't agree with what he said but how he said it was memorable.

    What is it about people today that they demonize anybody who doesn't agree with them? Are we really so arrogant to assume we have a corner on understanding and thereby have a corner on goodness?

    Obama is anti-Catholic , anti-jewish , and basically anti-Christian. Can't hide it anymore. This election you will see Catholics abandon Obama - good for the GOP.
