What's Your Opinion? ... Presidental Election 2008.... Politics/Government....

Niji-Hana's picture

Zaborg19 & I were having a discussion on tis topic and I thought that I should make a new topic just for this.  So here is a place to say what are your thoughts on this.   I hope that there will be a lot of responses here because this affects everyone, no matter what your age. Here is what we have discussed so far: On October 30th, 2008 Niji-Hana says:   So who do you think is going to win the election?  I have been following this on the news and it seems that Obama is leading so far.  I would like to see him win as would a lot of my friends.  I know that McCain has more exerience, but he is so old to be running for the office of President, the oldest one in history I think.  It is a very stressful job to be sure and it old be a shame it he ended up dying while in office.  I know that Palin is young but in all honesty, I don't think that she is ready to run the country if something were to happen to McCain.  What do you think?   On October 31st, 2008 Zaborg19 says: Obama knows what hes doing more than he does Mccain... in my opinion (Though I know your question was ment for Gin, I had to answer!) Though I dont hate Mccain, its more of a dislike.   On October 31st, 2008 Niji-Hana says: Hey Zaborg19, Glad that there are others here that follow politics besides Gin & I.  (I'm sure that he will also reply the next time he's on.)  I think that Obama will do a much better job as President and he is going to get my vote.  I dislike McCain and this is one reason why: it seems to me that he wants to keep the war going no matter the cost.  Now don't get me wrong, there is definitely a threat to world peace with the Alcaida ( spelling?) and the other terrorists in the Middle East, but we really need to think about bringing our troops home, you know.  I have many friends that have fmaily in the Marines and all they desire is to have them back home.  I totally support the military and what they do, are doing, & have done for our country & the world. In fact my father is an Army Veteran & my borhter-in-law is a Navy Veteran..  Keeping a SMALL presence over there is beneficial in some respect.  However we as a country also need to realize that we can't force a country to conform to our way of doing things as far as governmental issues are concerned.  In my opinion if we continue to try to make them do as we do, it is no better than what a dictator would do, does this make sense to you? Well I guess I better end this for now... ...this could be a very deep topic...( totally unrelated to anime & manga, but that is what this area is for.)    On October 31st, 2008 Zaborg19 says: Mccain is more like Bush, well, almost exactly like Bush. If we elect Mccain, then nothing will change. The economy will plumit in my opinion. Besides, with Obama, his idea is that once we leave, they will figure things out on their own and they will overcome instead of with the support of the United States, they will start to do things and fix things eventually. Which I hold that to be true. Mccain says we should stay in their until they are fit... >.> That might never happen, and with our economy in a recession, we need to focus on our problems for the time being. So yeah,... down with Mccain... Dewa Mata,Niji HanaOtaku Elite "Innoscence Activate"
