EXACTLY!!!

The only thing is, I haven't found an Obama supporter yet who seems to know this! The guy changes his mind on a lot of things. He says one thing, then as he gets elected, does something else. Seriously, why do people think this is actually possible?...

I didn't overlook what you typed. Again, you wish to deny a veteran who has served his country the right to vote. What policies did you question him on? Did you know the ins and outs of every policy for your candidate? What type of test would you require people be given in order to gain the right to vote? Would basic spelling and grammar skills be required? If so, over half of the country would be denied.

I will say that he does appear to support the blending of politics and religion, in order to develop a moral base for creating the conditions for a proper political arena.

He states that there may be individuals whose morality isn't guided by religion, but in the sense of government, that is not the case. Religion is required to develop the moral base for foundations of law.
at least it barrs heathen from the Government

Enemy combatants.

The rules are different during warfare. If we gave Nazi and Japanese POW's the same rights as American citizens, then we never would have won WW2.

Anyways, do you think we should convict the pilots who dropped the A-bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki with war crimes? Or what about President Truman who ordered the use of the atomic bombs?

Those two bombs incinerated over 220,000 Japanese civilians. Kind of makes dunking the heads of enemy combatants in a little bit of water seem tame by comparison.
How can you base the outcome of WW2 solely on the rights given to POW's? I would bet that many veterans are right now turning over in their graves at that comment. That is a horrible slap in the face to all veterans of that war.

lol, you're still overlooking it. I think it's great he's served the country, but to vote blindly is not how voting should be done. For God's sakes, at least watch 1 debate and make a decision upon that.

I don't have to go into detail on that or explain that to you. The point being that I questioned simple policies and Obama and McCain's stances on basic issues and all he really had to say was that I'm just an Obama hater.

Basic spelling and grammar? Gimme a break, that has nothing to do with this conversation. Well, maybe if the test were English only, lol. As for a test, there's really no way to do that. I'm simply voicing my opinion that there should be a way to do things, but there really isn't anything that can be done about that. Which is why America is great, because we have the RIGHT TO VOTE! The only thing, maybe, would be a simple 10-point questionnaire that asks a question, then choose the appropriate candidate for each issue. I guarantee most voters would fail that (failing, meaning less than 60%).

No. As a veteran, I understand that you don't treat POW's as "innocent until proven guilty" if you have any intention of winning a war.

If Barack Obama can lead the most powerful nation on the planet with enough dollars in his stimula package to buy as many clues as he want...and still not be sure of his own policies...

Why would I want a Dollar anyway...I have THREE pinned to the Flag on my wall
