    Default Who will be the next US President?

    We are having dozens of polls in the US and outside on this issue. So I thought we might just as well have a GPWA poll on it.

    Want a picture of my yard sign or bumper stickers on my families cars? I really hope the dems win by the current margins - even my state, a usual republican voting state (for president) is "in play" and may be close!

    I agree, we need definite change in the White House and honestly 4 more years of a Republican ideological out look isnít change. We need to seriously look at rebuilding the middle class so we can make America prosper once again. Far too many people in our great country are suffering right now, we need to help our own first then we can help rebuild other countries.

    Kind Regards,

    Tony Clark - Senior Account Executive

    Whoever is the next US President, he has to stop thinking: We Americans know what is good for other countries. On the other hand, the other countries must stop believing: The Americans know what is good for us. Without such a change, which can only come gradually, we cannot make much progress in any of the fundamental issues of this century. Although I sincerely hope it is not McCain who wins the race, I am also not sure if Obama can stop the US administration from interfering in everybody's affairs. As for the rest of the world, I think it is only China which will not accept the US Leadership as a fact - apart from Al Qaeda. Incidentally I read yesterday an interesting column in a Pakistani daily titled: Why Al Qaeda supports McCain

    Personally, I don't trust the GOP when it comes to Foreign policy or doing what is right for the people, but I am more confident in Obama to do what is more in line with what is best for the US because he is a man of the people.

    Only time will tell so I guess we can visit this if he wins in a few years.

    I agree and from the overwhelming interest in this election, number of new registrations and unprecident early voter turn out I think the majority of Americans belive that a change in direction as it relates to foreign policy, economics and the middle class is drastically needed.

    Once the average person start to feel the burden of a economic crisis then you start to pay attention real quick. hehe

    LOL That reminds me of a quote/joke that I heard him say at a rally.

    "We can't screw it up any worse than they did." - Barack Obama on why voters should choose Democrats over Republicans in West Philly, PA
    I would agree with him on that. hehe

    Default Voting Machines Flipping Votes at Many Early Voting Sites: Where Are the Election Pro

    You may have a good shot if they cheat and steal the election again this time.

    I would not bet to much because we won't let THAT happen this time around with Obama!

    WASHINGTON, Oct 30, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Non-Profit Election Watchdog Demands Failed Machines Be Removed from Service, Impounded Velvet Revolution ("VR"), a non-profit dedicated to fair, honest, accurate and transparent elections, today called for elections officials in all states to immediately impound any voting machine that has flipped votes from one candidate to another.

    It has been widely reported in the media over the past week of early voting that Direct Recording Election (DRE, usually touch-screen) voting machines made by ES&S, Diebold, Sequoia and Hart InterCivic have been flipping votes, predominantly from Democratic candidates to Republican candidates, but in some reported cases, just the opposite. (See: http://www.bradblog.com/?page_id=6577).

    These vote flips were first reported in West Virginia and the elections official there quickly ordered the recalibration of some machines, but video has shown that recalibration does not correct the problem and the flips continue. (See: http://www.velvetrevolution.us/elect...res_video.html)

    Vote flipping has also now reported to have occurred in Texas, Tennessee, Missouri, Nevada, Colorado, Georgia and elsewhere.

    But that may not be enough to win the election. Will the White majority of the country accept a Black president? I think that is the core question.

    that is the true question, is America ready? i mean 40 years ago on some places (especially in the south) the Afro Americans were still treated like a 2nd class race
    let's hope the world had reached a level that is beyond that.

    Obama is a little different is as he has a white mother and a black father. I was looking at the gallup polls breakdown on race and 42% to 44% of whites say they will vote for him so we will see.

    Here is more evidence of how low down and dirty the McPalin/GOP are this year.

    If McCain does win then THIS will be the reason why.



    The McCain Campaign and its allies have begun an unprecedented nationwide negative campaign that uses robocalls, direct mail, and other techniques to quietly poison voters' information with lies and fear tactics.
