Presidential Election

I usually don't write anything about politics, but I think I should... A lot of heat has been moving around between the Republicans and the Democrats. I was trying to figure out why there aren't many you tube videos against McCain but find a lot on Obama. Well I think it's because Obama is probably going to become President. I really think he might, but I'm not endorsing Obama, I'm endorsing McCain. But before you vote for President watch this you tube video about Obama. To tell you the truth Obama scares the crap out of me and I don't think a President that scares people should be President. No offense to McCain, but he looks like he can't a hurt a fly, he's really old... Anyway, watch the video and tell me what you think. I'm outs

You don't have to post this if you don't want to, but having studied history and philosophy I am pretty good at analyzing sources.

I want to reassure you that this video is complete propaganda. It cuts off clips before Obama can answer the questions being fired at him, making it look as if he is unable to.

I don't think it's really relevant whether or not he wears an American flag pin or if he doesn't put his hand over his heart on hearing the anthem. America in the last few years has been making a bloodbath, involving not just Americans, but Iraqis and Brits too.

As for his pastor, is it any wonder he has the feelings he does? I've studied the Civil Rights Movement extensively and what happened during that time was no less than horrific. He probably has childhood memories which have scarred him.

You can't judge a person by their name any more than you can a book by its cover. His name has nothing to do with his aptitude as a political leader.

I will also point out that this video is made by "Illuminati Productions"? Talk about questionable.

To be honest I think a lot of the anti-Obama things online are because a lot of Americans, in my experience, are resistant to change. Also many people have a nasty tendancy to think that communism and socialism are the same thing.

I'm not American so I'm saying this from an objective point of view, since I couldn't vote or do anything to influence the outcome. But I'm pretty sure this change is going to turn out to be a good thing, and that most of these videos online are just propaganda from people who don't want to see a change in government.
