    Basically our vote in November will determine the direction the country will take for the next two years.

    And for those things that affect all of us, it comes down to the following four issues:

    ***Government spending.

    ***Tax policy and the effect of that on jobs.

    ***Individual liberties, options, choices, and opportunities.

    ***Deficit spending and the short range and long range effect of that.

    In my opinion, all citizens should now be focusing on these four issues, and whatever side they come down on re those four issues should determine who they vote for.

    What say you? And who do you think is more likely to represent your views on those four issues?

    I will vote for the President if he chooses to run again in 2012. You didn't mention foreign policy which is the issue dearest to my heart.

    I will vote for Jerry Brown for governor.

    I will be voting for the candidate who is does not cater to corporations and lobbyists, and who has done a lot of education. Patty Murray has done a lot of education in our state, which probably helped Washington State to have the highest average SAT scores in the nation for the last seven years.

    Don't know much about the President, do you?
    If you think he is far left, you probably should start reading up on what he has done.
    Someone is far left does not pass a health care bill that will provide health insurance through private companies, they don't cater to big corporations, and they don't continue a War or increase troop numbers.

    I'm voting for Increased Domestic Oil and Gas Drilling here in Louisiana and for high gas prices at the pump to boost royalties from distribution profits. It will help the business tremendously since the moritorium was put in..

    Do you seriously think because you, a clear support of his, tells me he is not far left. I am just going to say ok you are right?

    His actions, and more to the point. The Bills this FAR LEFT congress have been passing. Are indeed Far left Ideas.

    You can keep claiming they are not, but I am not convinced in the least.

    The Left knows they must do things slowly as they would be torn apart if they tried for everything they want all at once. The Direction Obama and the Dems want to take us is very clear, and very clearly a product of the far left.

    Despite your attempts to claim it is not.

    Lets see, some courthouse clowns, some statehouse clowns, and a rep in the inside the beltway circus.
