Welcome to Brick Horizon
The only thing that scares me is what will happen if Obama is shot before taking office on january 20th: in this case the Chamber of representatives will pick a President and we have great chances to have... Hilary

Obama will ask Europe to spend more in the military, to do more in Iraq and Afghanistan, he will take measures to protect the US labour market and economy. McCain, on the other, is a strong believer of US power and open economy. It'll probably become more difficult for European companies to trade in the US and we, European nations, probably won't be able to hide behide the America's back in military matters any more... so, for us, contrary what everybody seem to think here in Belgium, Obama is not really a fantastic choice. Neither is McCain, though. Both parties are so far to the right on the polical scale, compared to European parties, that neither would even get 5% of the votes...

Firstly, we are in a "crisis" at the moment, because of the recent presidents, or so the people say. And thusly, the people think that it is because of the Republicans. Thusly, they voted for Obama, as a test of if the Democrats could help the crisis. However, in truth, the situation will only become worse with a Democratic leader. Troops are being pulled from Iraq, thus increased risk of threats. The lower class is being helped by the Upper class's money, which is NOT what taxes should be for. It is up to things such as our Churchs to pay for them.
Seondly, the crisis will become worse, because unrest would form from the upper classes. Without a middle class to support the lower class, what good is a Democrat? Now I come from an upper class family, and thusly I am a Republican.
Thirdly: Now please, don't backstab me or think I am racist, but is America ready for a black President? At this moment in time, no. Just a comment on my part.
Next, Obama and McCain are both great people. They both sparked my interest. It is their ideas, that made me dislike them. Obama was a great speaker, but I just don't think his idea of change is what my family's idea of change is.
McCain, had a strong chance of winning. But Palin brought him down. Undoubtedly, picking a female was a wise choice. Picking Sarah Palin, was not. Every time she went on to speak, she said something, that didn't help her or McCain much.
Just my two cents.
And on a nother note, we now have a President who refuses to put his hand on his heart to the Pledge of Allegiance. I am not fond of this at all.

If McCain were elected he would have continued to poor money into the war.... A war that at this point has no end in sight. He said himslef that he was going to make the war in Iraq his main priority. That mean the U.S.'s econemy was going to come second. You can't have a strong military if your econemy is weak. That is a known fact no matter what country your from.
Completely usless comparison. To completely differnt countries ran two completely differnt ways. No doubt that if a European Goverment offical tried to run for a postion in the United States with the Pricipals of a european country they wouldn't be given the time of day.
Hmm.... Lets see. When democratic Bill clinton left the office of the presidency after serving his term,the U.S. had a Surplus in money. The econemy was at its best, and the U.S was thriving. Then bring in Republican President Gorge Bush
In the 8 years he's been president he's put this country in the most finacial debt its ever been in, has created the worst economic crises since the great depression. So yes, i would say him, along with the republican party are largely responsible for were the U.S. is today.
John McCain sided with Bush 90% of the time from everything to tax increases to the war. Electing him would have been another 4 years of Bush, thus another 4 years of debt.
And how does giving tax breaks to the wealthy help the situation? (this was John McCains plan.)
Taking into concideration that America did in fact vote him into office... By a land slide.
Well,he certianly couldn't do any worse than Bush has, or McCain would have done.
