Two major issues weren't brought up in last night's debate:
#2. GUN CONTROL.
(poor out of touch bastard)At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

Not that enough see it that way obviously but the majority of what congress gets involved in is according to the constitution reserved for the several states.The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.
It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

Remember the good old days when you could ruin the opposition’s platform by just saying the other party loved fags?

Those (and taxes) are pretty much my deciding issues on every election and I know enough not to vote for Obama. If the election is a close win for McCain, then believe me, a lot of it would hinge on the votes of those that would have voted for Obama if not for Abortion and Gun Control.
Do you even have any idea of what a principle is? If you do then you know that you do not compromise it for some blowhard promising you a bunch of free shit.

Abortion is an issue that plays to each party's base, more than the independents who haven't made up their minds yet. Those who are still deciding don't care that much about it, or they would have decided a long time ago who they were voting for.
Gun control is different. There are lots of liberals who don't support gun control, or support only certain limits (like the assualt rifle ban), but don't want to stop anyone from hunting or owning a handgun.
My advice to liberals who support total gun control is this: Spend 12 years living in a place like Detroit. I'm not a gun owner, and wasn't when I lived in the city, but I seriously considered buying one at one point and would never have a problem now with any law-abiding, mentally stable individual owning a gun. Before those 12 years, I was pretty pro-gun control. I actually started to believe that the problem with Detroit is that not enough law-abiding citizens have guns. Only a few of my city-dwelling coworkers own guns.
My main reason for not owning one is that I never had one, my family never owned guns, and my dad is a fisher, not a hunter. Being unfamiliar with them, and being a class A clutz, I'm not so sure I'm the kind of person who should have a gun.
