Then I would say that we are both just exactly where we need to be!

Have you voted yet? I did this morning. I love early voting. I commute about 100 miles a day (round trip) and it makes for a harrowing day if I have to vote on election day.

Hm, 4 for Obama: Immigration, global warming, and normalization of sodomy.

Unfortunately, McCain isn't very different than Obama when it comes to these issues. I don't see any substantive difference between the two on these issues.

Bah. I'm only voting for Mickey because he'll kill bad guys, drill for oil, and protect lil' babies. Other than that, there's no real difference between these two Irishmen.

Early voters are Traitors. Election day is November 4th. It's in the Constitution.

Oh, zero for Godbama, it was too easy to tell who said what based on vocabulary and apparent sanity.

You said it in more words than I do, We ain't got a choice. McCain or a sissy!

100 % McCain.

It was interesting, however, to see some of the quotes (many of which I was already familiar).

For example, with respect to gay marriage, is there really a difference between what the two of them are saying (in the quotes posted)?

Personally, I have absolutely no problem with gay people enter into contracts with each other, naming each other as beneficiaries of their own assets; naming each other as the health care executor, etc. The difference for me is whether or not a gay couple is entitle to the same governmental benefits as married couples (social security benefits; tax breaks; pension survivor beneficiaries, etc.).

As far as private contracts, however, I do not disagree with them creating them.

I think there is a big difference. Granting any two people the right to draw up contracts and other paperwork to assign to each other the rights, limitations and obligations implied in traditional marriage is appropriate...and I believe less harmful to the foundation of our society than trying to force the opinion of the few upon the majority.

"I do not believe gay marriage should be legal...but I do believe that people ought to be able to enter into contracts, exchange powers of attorney, others way that people [who] have relationships can enter into."

"I personally believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. But I also agree with most Americans that decisions about marriage should be left to the states as they always have been."

So which one of those quotes indicates forcing the opinion of the few upon the majority?
