Though Obama does have some disconcerting acquaintances it isn't the main issue in this election. These people will not have a major impact if he is elected.
The main issue of this election is the economy. When the economy crashed around a month ago it almost locked Obama up the election.
Obama's economic plan is highly flawed. If all of his entitlement plans were put into place in the next 4 years it would cost the U.S. 2 trillion dollars. We do not have this money and it would sink us into a greater national debt. His tax plan is even worse. I don't mind the overall idea of helping the poor but this plan would hurt the middle class. His plan calls for the corporate tax to increase almost 20%. If companies are taxed more it will hurt everyone. Most companies will be forced to downsize if they want to stay in profit. Also, it will force many companies to move out of the country so they can operate with less taxes. Even worse consumers may well have to pay more for products to make up for the tax increases. Surf board companies will need to change there approach. They will either raise the already super high sticker price on a board or cut back on developing technology to make boards and wetsuit better. How are companies going to give you a raise or higher new people if more money is taken from their bottom line. In this economic time we need companies to gain more freedoms so they can grow and higher more people. If Obama is elected it will be highly unlikely to enact this legislation because the country will realize it won't work.
(heres another reason for the middle east to hate us)
Obama is a target for assassination, not because he is black but because he is a Muslim apostate, according to devout Muslims around the world. Therefore, he cannot be a good Chief Diplomat to the Middle East.
However, through Frank Marshall Davis, Obama had an admitted relationship with someone who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). The record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at some point in time, he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his “poetry” and getting advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, Dreams From My Father, refers to him repeatedly as just “Frank.”
Tony Rezko, Eric Holder, Jim Johnson - look them up
Most politicians have at least one skeleton in their closet. Obama seems to have an entire family of skeletons. If he wasn't the media's "anointed one" or was a conservative (Rep or Dem) he would be just be a "community organizer" turned second term senator.

The Liberal media and the Democratic party should have looked into this guys background before the began worshipping him.
"I think he can be ready, but right now, I don't think he is. The presidency is not something that lends itself to on the job training." - Senator Joe Biden (If his own running mate has doubts about whether he's ready for the job... shouldn't you?)
Definitely voting for McCain. Obama has very little experience, wants to pull out of Iraq soon, is friends with a terrorist, and wants to, in his own words, "spread the wealth" = socialism. Not what our country needs at all.
please take your gay thread to a political website.
no, this is an open forum and we have talked about surfing so if you don't like it then don't read it.
Kelly Slater, the best surfer (and possibly the best athlete) to ever live is voting McCain. Need I say more??
It's a proven fact, if Obama tried to get a job with the CIA, FBI or even as a civilian within the federal government, he would be denied because of his links with the people he has surorunded himself by. As someone with a secret level security clearance, I must say, this is the biggest red flag of them all!
