Take Yer Pick

Tomorrow a HUGE election will take place. One that may have a greater impact on Canada than our own election less than one month ago. So, if you could, where would your "x" land? Voting for McCain or Obama?

  2. I don't know how you can call yourself a Christian and vote for Obama.

  3. Hey Wendy,
    I think comments like that make baby Jesus cry.

    I'd vote Democrat, it's the lesser of 2 evils.

  4. I'd vote for Barack. I believe we as believers are called to look at more than just where candidates stand on gay rights and abortion. What about war? The poor? Healthcare?

  5. Dane,
    I thank you for your reply, but I believe it's left-wing liberals like yourself that are why the church has lost it's power. We need to stand for biblical values, and be set apart from the world.

  6. I would vote for McCain. Obama is a child-killing, American hating, arab terrorist (who is also a socialist). I thought that was obvious.

    Hasn't anyone been watching the news?!?!

    I hope Obama wins, but I really think that McCain will, the only reason being that the racist Bible Belt of America has such a huge population. I know that there are people who live there that actually do their research and vote according to their views, but there are also a lot of people who don't. I'm really afraid that those people who couldn't be bothered to go out and vote before will go out and vote for McCain just because he isn't black. It's amazing how deep-rooted white supremacy feelings are in some parts of America. And of course there are those who will vote for McCain just because he wants to completely outlaw abortions.

    Like I said, I'm really praying that Obama wins, but I'm afraid small-minded bigotry will win in the end.

  8. If Sarah Palin wasn't a part of McCain's campaign I think he may have won.

  9. Obama... for many reasons...

    I think it's extremely ridiculous to vote McCain automatically just because you're a Christian. I don't know that much about it all.. but as far as getting the economy strong and taking care of the poor and many other things, I'd go with Obama.

    Plus.. McCain is going to die soon probably anyways. Let's be honest

  10. For Neil (and anyone else throwing around the Socialist argument that I'm totally sick of):

    Obama proposes a TAX REFORM! He's not a socialist.

    Countries all over the world have a tax system to "redistribute wealth". Obama's tax reform doesn't raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000. That might be 10% of the US population at most! Do the math, tax money comes from somewhere, and anyone making that much money isn't Joe the Plumber or Joe Six Pack. It'll be the CEO's and executives of big companies, that in all honesty can spare a bit more.

    It's a tax system that parallels ours in Canada. Are we socialists? We've got health care and have a huge amount of government spending to protect and take care of our nation's population.

    Ask yourself if you think we're socialists, then get off the bandwagon with everyone else that doesn't understand that argument!!!

    OBAMA for CHANGE!

  11. McCain definitely McCain. Let's face it Obama may be a good speaker, but does he really have the experience needed to be president? I don't think so.

  12. Obama... But if Tina Fey was running, she'd get my vote.

  13. Implying that if Obama doesn't win it's because of racism (as one commenter did) is just plain wrong. A lot of people aren't going to vote for him just because they don't believe in the things that democrats do. It doesn't make them racist any more than it would make those who vote for McCain/Palin a feminist.

    Yes I don't doubt that racism still exists, but to blame a potential loss on it is a dangerous thing to do.

    Obama is not the perfect candiate (and really is anyone?). There are many reasons why people would be justified in not voting for him. Lack of experience for one. His policies on taxes. The environment. Even his ties with a guy like Rev. Wright could cause someone to question his ability to lead a country.

    None of those things have anything to do with race as much as they do with personal beliefs and the direction that the voter wants to see the country take.

    In an election there is always a winner and a loser, it doesn't matter what colour your skin is, that's a reality.

  14. I think Obama appeals more to the younger Christian, with his focus on helping out the poor and families.
    McCain appeals to the older Christians with his pro-life and anti-gay rights stance.
    Take your pick. Which do you feel is more important to Jesus?

  15. It doesn't matter that Obama won, as all the script writers are still the same. Six months from now will show the TRUE Obama.

    Any politician that claims they're Christian and yet warmonger are using the identity to make it seem "justified". Don't fall for it.
