    10. It's not over, California hasn't been counted yet, there's still a chance it could go red.
    9. The exit polls are wrong!
    8. This is John McCain's concession speech from 2000. The race is still on!
    7. John McCain let Obama win just so Palin could run in 2012
    6. The liberal media aren't counting all of the votes, there's still a possibility Obama could lose.
    5. The Republicans are blue, not the Democrats! McCain has won!
    4. We should a national recount because of the fraudulant ACORN registrations. Who knows how close this race really was?
    3. The liberal media was in the tank for Obama and this is the most he can win by?
    2. Obama outspent McCain almost 4 to 1 in every state and this is the most he won by?
    1. Obama's birth certificate isn't valid. Impeach Obama now!

    I've voted Republican all my life, actually. When you look at the total number of votes casted for George W Bush in 2000 and 2004, I can say that I am one of those votes. In 2000, I just plain didn't like Gore. In 2004, I was too afraid to vote for anyone else other than Bush in a time of war. I lambasted the anti-war protestors as anti-americans... how dare they protest a war. How dare they protest the liberation of over 10 million iraqis.

    Well, 4 years later, with over a million iraqis dead, over 4500 us troops dead, and the world is less safe, our country is less safe and our economy is in shambles. I regret voting for Bush very much.

    When the elections started this year, I was so excited for Rudy. I wanted him to win so badly. He would've had my vote in less than a milisecond. I was so prepared to vote Republican again. Then John McCain won. I liked McCain back in 2000. I know his story... he's servied this country with honor. I didn't know anything about Obama and frankly his ideas of sitting down and talking to our enemies without preconditions scared the hell out of me.

    I began following Obama... I thought the guy was charasmatic, cool, and quite the smooth talker. I knew then and I know now that a candidate has one or two ideas that are his core ideas and then he takes on the ideas of his party. For McCain cutting wasteful government spending and national defense are his core beliefs. For Obama creating peace with our enemies and helping the disadvantaged are his core beliefs. I have to say I'm proud to have two candidates who love this country so much and want to lead it in a new direction and change the course we're on for a better future. I think both candidates' core beliefs are admirable and I was on the fence. I did not like Obama's pick for Joe Biden. The guy seems sneaky, slimy.. like a used car salesman. He doesn't appear to be an intellectual to me. So I was leaning to McCain and then he picked Sarah Palin. Well, that changed my vote.

    I said:

    I thought this was a joke and I kept pinching myself to wake up.

    I saw her on interviews with Gibson and Couric and I was shocked that McCain could pick someone who has absolutely no understanding of the issues facing mainstream America.

    Then I began seeing, during the debates, a different John McCain than who I've been seeing for the longest time. I watched the evolution of the proud, independent John McCain that almost switched political parties, to an evil, old man who's willing to stoop to any level to win the presidency. He was willing to sacrafice anything just to win the White House. He didn't care about the very morals and ethics and beliefs that first attracted me to the Republican Party. Strong national defense, strong support for Israel... low taxes, small government.

    But I began researching the trickle down theory and why it worked so well for Coolidge and Reagan and didn't work well for Bush. I started seeing that all of these core beliefs that the Republican Party had, they didn't follow. The rich got richer, but they didn't spend their money on the economy like they were supposed to. They didn't create jobs like they were supposed to. They just held onto their wealth.

    The final straw for me was when McCain "suspended" his campaign. Now the Republicans are so power hungry, so fearful of losing their grip on everything, they will outright lie and try to scare us just to hold onto their vote.

    My mother had to call me today and told me she received something in the mail that said Sarah Palin was half Jewish and that in her office she had the flag of the US, the flag of Alaska and the flag of Israel.

    Then I see FoxNews with the banner of "DEATH TO ISRAEL" on the bottom line with "Joe the Plumber."

    The Republicans remind me of Gargamel from the Smurfs. Always trying dirty tricks to get their way.

    Obama has stated numerous times on the air and through his blogs that he is a supporter of Israel and that Israel will be America's most important relationship. I know some on here don't like that, but that's your choice.

    As a Jew, I am willing to trust Obama to Israel. And I read the Israeli papers all the time and I know they're not thrilled with him. But, like the people of Louisiana did with Jindal, we have to give this new guy a shot. He's new, he's fresh, he doesn't have a lot of experience, but he's got a lot of great ideas and I'd like to see what he can do. If it doesn't work, we'll throw him out in 4 years. It happened with Bush, it happened with Carter and it can happen again.

    It's time to give someone with radical ideas on how to fix our country the helm, because the safe, tried and tested ideas aren't working. If Obama does well, America will experience the most radical shift to the left we've had in decades. I think we're overdue for that and I think it's time we joined the rest of the world.

    In modern times, I think the Jewish community as a whole is turned off by the Republican Party's associations with Christian evangelicals... or at least a lot of my family is.

    Historically, civil rights and workers' rights were really important for the Jews who came to the U.S. in droves, while fleeing oppression in Germany, Russia, and all those other countries that passed antisemitic laws and/or tried to kill us around the time of the world wars. The Democrats were becoming the party of social equality at the time, they supported unions, and so that's where the Jewish people went.
