Media bias?

  • First of all, I HAVE to point out that I don't like McCain any more than Obama. I probably won't vote this November. If I did vote, it would be for Ron Paul.

    Choose between a Neo-con (McCain) and a communist (Obama)? No thanks.

    But I am still offended by outright lying, so I am curious --

    Is McCain really 6 inches shorter than Obama?

  • I just did 30 seconds' worth of research --

    Apparently McCain is as short as me (5'7") and Obama is 6' plus a half inch.

    Wow -- what were the Republicans thinking when they put a short dude on the ticket? Haven't they ever heard of Napoleon or the "short man complex"?  McCain -- if he were elected (fat chance) would nuke Iran for sure -- just so he won't feel "small".

    I think it's in the laws of politics that a short person won't beat a taller one. Although in this age of media, they can present the candidates any way they want. I don't watch much media though, so maybe I'm the last one to discover the respective candidates' heights.

  • For Catholics in the United States it must be a tough choice deciding whether to vote for the war hero, anti abortion, John McCaine who spent 5 years in a communist North Vietnamese prisoner of war camp or to vote for socialist Barack Obama who voted repeatedly against a bill that would have made sure babies who survive botched abortions get adequate medical care and is also committed to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which currently protects states from having to recognize same-sex marriages contracted in other states.

  • Ummm, Do you have any idea who John McCain really is?????
    Why do you suppose the media chose the "Maverick" for the "conservative" candidate. Because, he ain't conservative. Check out his daddy and the US Liberty.
    Do you really think a decent man has a chance to get this far? If so talk to Ron Paul, Alan Keyes or Pat Buchanan.

  • Exactly. There is no GOOD REASON why Ron Paul isn't the likely next president.

    What, do you think McCain has ANYTHING on Ron Paul? Come on! Ron Paul is smarter, has more character, and is above McCain in every category except age! (hopefully he's taller than 5'7"...)

    If people had any sense, they would vote for someone decent like Ron Paul, who isn't afraid to speak the truth.

    But the American people will get the president THEY DESERVE -- I guess that's the fairest way, right? That way, if they are truly needing of punishment, they'll get it.

    Vatican Moves For Total US Takeover With Obama Vice President Pick

    By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers (Traducción al Español abajo)

    Some pretty ugly stuff is being tossed against Catholics.  Looks like disinformation agents are busy trying to pin the demise of the world on the Catholics. This stuff goes over big with the fundamentalist baptist crowd.

  • May I recommend Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party? Everyone should vote for him. We need a viable 3rd party, and Ron Paul recently said that the only way for change is to have a 3rd party.

    If we can get everyone who would throw away their vote on the stauts quo to Chuck Baldwin and we just get 5% the party will have to be admitted on every ballot next election and he will have to be admitted to the debates.

    Baldwin supported Paul, now support Baldwin. I also like the Constitution Party's views better than Paul on some issues anyway.

  • Not a bad idea.

    If I'm not too busy on election day, I might just do that.

    I just want to vote FOR someone, not just choose between "AIDS" and "Cancer".
