Official "why I'm Not Voting Obama" Thread

Recommended Posts

So the official thread on why you aren't voting Obama, maybe it'll save us some spamming every thread with reasons.

Personally:
1) The Life Issue
2) He broke his campaign financing pledge.
3) Lack of experience (the same goes to Palin).
4) Intentional or not, his cult of personality is a bit intimidating.

Although there are a number of his views I support, those four tend to stick out as to why not.

Lack of experience

Cult of Personality (I'm voting for president, not messiah)

Shady backers

Change for change sake, always cost money, and is rarely an improvement

You mean why I didn't vote for Obama! :smokey:



1) Life

2) Integrity

3) Foreign Affairs

4) I do not think that fiscally the democratic way to "spread the wealth" is a correct way to spend our tax dollars. I believe in a free market competition for goods and services. There is so much I can say here about how lazy and greedy we ALL have got. That nothing will work in any way shape or form until Americans,get off there buttocks and get back to the basics. GOD,FAMILY,NEIGHBOR and RESPONSIBILITY. That is my two cents! Its worth a trillion bucks! (Please apply it towards the deficeit) Edited by jckinsman

His invincible bigotry against the unborn and ties to Planned Parenthood.
His vague "change" and "hope" rhetoric.
His cult of personality.
His supporters. Edited by geetarplayer

Another early voter, fun! There was no one on my ballot for State Surveyor, I voted Cthulhu by Write In for the position.

Nor is he real. ;) Therefore, I contend that it is morally permissible to vote for Cthulhu.

Supporting an evil to bring about an eventual good is still intrinsically evil. ;)

But Cthulhu is intriniscally evil to begiin with, therefore I am cooperating with a non-existent greater evil than an existent lesser evil.
