On the Economy
According to Obama's speech on the economy, he blames credit card companies and partially John McCain for American consumer debt. It seems that the democrats try putting the blame of national crises everywhere but where it belongs. Another example is that the state of our economy is all Pres. Bush's fault, go take a lesson in economics people! It sounds a little too much like the priests of King Noah.
Could it also be that interest rates aren't high because credit card companies are bad (for the most part) but also because of the number of people who file bankruptcy and never pay back their huge credit?
On the Environment
Obama wants to create a tax on the windfall profits of oil companies? Won't that just increase the cost of R&D to find other oil, causing a rise in the cost of oil in the long run? Oil companies might make $.10 on the dollar, the rest is already going to the government. Since when is a windfall profit bad, isn't that the point of capitalism, aren't we leaning a little closer to socialism with his ideas?
On the Supreme Court Vacancies
I'm glad someone pointed out the possibility that we would be forfeiting 6 seats in the Supreme Court (though I haven't found any news articles on it). A fully democratic run gov't would be bad (as is a fully run republican gov't) we need both views present and balanced in order to best represent the people. (If you can prove otherwise be my guest, but I still don't believe democrats are 100% evil or that republicans are 100% holy). Though in the case of the Courts, we need judges who espouse the Christian views of the majority of the US, who will uphold the sanctity of marriage along with other Christian ideals, it is quite obvious that republicans win this debate.
I've still got Obama's biography to watch. If anyone see's anything Obama would do better than McCain, please comment!
