    Yes, Democrats Motto, Vote Early and Vote Often, I don't care who votes as long as they vote for Obama, come one come all, come Mickey Mouse, come all the dead voters.
    want prove of fraud? I come to this thread and it automatically voted for Obama even when I checked Mitt Romney.

    Yes, this gives the democrats the ability to vote early, vote often! Stealing the election is the democratic way!

    VOTER ID should be mandatory! A questionnaire should also be required... If you don't know the candidates views, how can you be expected to vote properly! Obamaphones - vote for Obama, he gives you free stuff! UGH

    Anything that makes fraud easier benefits 0bama, as his supporters are the ones far more likely to avail themselves of the opportunity.

    The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency. It was $10.626 trillion on President Bush's last day in office, which coincided with President Obama's first day.

    Today the debt is at 16,076,149,123,449 and rising so rapidly I couldn't keep up with it. This means under Barack Obama in less than 4 years oppose to Bush's 8 his debt has gone up almost 6 trillion. At least by the end of today it will be 6 trillion. Stop listening to the lamestream media. They lie profusely since they do not want a Republican to win. Do your homework! This country will be doomed under your idle! Think of this country, your neighbors and your friends. He may be a pretty face, talks well, but there is nothing in his head to fix this country.

    If you don't think we can do worse, then you've not been doing enough research. The plan we're on now is one that will ruin our country. You might not care now because maybe you're young and don't own much yet, but once you have a home, an income that is getting taxed more the more you make, children, maybe some sort of chronic illness where you need frequent medical care - THEN you will see what a mess this country is in. The old "It's Bush's fault" argument is tired and ignorant. Obama needs to take responsibility for his own actions, man up and own up. Anyone wiling to vote for a president who hasn't done anything good for this country and can't even take responsibility for the things he HAS done, blames others for his problems, won't answer questions, lied about all sorts of things he was going to do and then when questioned about why he didn't do them he refuses to answer - anyone who votes for a person like that either is uneducated (and I don't mean they haven't gone to school, I mean they get their political knowledge from bumper stickers, slogans and from what others tell them) or is only concerned about themselves.

Romney is a strong businessman with a good character, open background (doesn't hide all of his college records, tax records, personal records that every other president released) and should be given a chance to show us that American CAN be great again.

    On a side note - just to give you an idea of a small but significant thing the Obama's have done. My children aren't allowed to bring packed lunches to school anymore. The government has decided to withhold funding from schools who don't force kids to eat only 850 calories at lunch (NOT enough for growing children, my kids are as thin as rails as it is, they don't need calories cut!). So they can't bring a packed lunch, they have to eat the crap served in the lunch room or go hungry. Of course, lunch is $3.30 per meal in elementary school but multiply that by 4 kids, 5 days a week and that is $250.00 a MONTH in school lunches! We don't qualify for free lunch but we can't afford that and I don't know many people who can. This is just an example of how Obama will start picking at the little things while people think it's no big deal, until it happens to them.

    President Obama has a lead in early voting key states already. Mitt Romney is too behind in electoral votes; doubt Romney can catch up in just a few weeks. The math is not in favor for Mitt Romney.

    Romney hasn't gutted anything - he's good businessman. I've seen him speak and he is calm, truthful and sincere. His supporters are good, solid Americans who want to work hard and keep what they've worked hard for. Obama's supporters are ALWAYS hateful, disrespectful, name callers, racist liars. They should be embarrassed but they don't have enough sense to be.

    Why not. You gave Bushy an extra four years to destroy this country and it's economy. When he left office he left owing for all of the illegal wars he had started. The banks were so-called too big ro fail and Bush had done a stimulas and we were still loswing 700,000 jobs a month. Try getting facts from unbiased sources you won't seem quite so uninformed.

    I gave NOTHING, my only saving Grace was that I did not vote for Bush....... He failed....... just like Obama is a failure...... didn't vote for him either..... Good at picking losers. WHY ALWAYS compare to Bush??? He is not a standard for forgiveness and for sure success. Want to talk about uninformed??? Obama knew the facts..... he campaigned, wanting the job. His heart may have been in the right place but his inexperience and skills prevented success. You state what it was....... you need to look at what it is. We need a change. Will Romney be better,,,,, maybe not, but it is clear that even giving Obama more time he is just not qualified to pull us out of the hole we are in. I am a Democrat voting for Romney.

    Neither! If you vote before the debates, you probably cheat yourself of knowledgable insistence. I want to know the truth and rather be the last to vote as I am an Independent and a Christian! Both Parties have their exceptions.

    The Republicans have thrown Jesus under the bus everytime they take food stamps from hungry children. Allow people to die because they have a pre-existing condition. So go ahead and vote for Romney who believes that Jesus and Satan were brothers and that God lives on the planet Kolob with his wife. This genius of a businessman doesn't understand why windows on airplanes don't open. You had better re read the Constitution. Seperation of church and state . Many of our founding fathers were deists and Thomas Jefferson even wrote his own bible. Under God was added to the pledge in the 50's under Eisenhower. I was in school at the time. Pilgrims came to America to escape the church that was forcing a certain religion on them and if they dared read the bible they were punished as a heretic.

    Lies and propaganda. No starving children, except in India, Indonesia, N. Korea, etc. Kids here are taken care of. Sweden, the U.K., etc. are the ones allowing people to die because see in socialized medical care, the government starts wanting to save money because it's expensive to insure and entire country, especially when less than half of the people are even helping pay the bills! So you have your "free" healthcare and you're over 45 and find out you need dialysis? Too bad, you're too old, they want to save it for someone who will still be working in 20 years. If you're a kid and you need a transplant? Sorry, but you're a child, you don't pay taxes, we need to save it for a taxpayer. And THAT is already on the books RIGHT NOW in the U.S>A> thanks to Obama"care" And get your history straight lady, the pilgrims came here to escape taxation without representation (like we're falling into with this guy) and because they wanted to be free to be CATHOLIC which wasn't allowed in England because of Henry the 8th. You're not that bright, you should get off the internet and read a book.
