Some people say you should vote for him because they believe Barack Obama is a hard working man. Others dislike him because they don't want a president who will "give the doll…ars of hard working people to those who don't work hard." To those who can vote, please vote based on character, experience, and association. Not for race and party. A Presidential election is much more than that. A View From A Conservative There is a danger in electing the most liberal President in history, during a time when we have the most liberal leadership in place in the Senate and the House. This is a potential trifecta for liberal causes, the ramifications could be felt for decades. Our core freedoms will be under attack from the left wing Democratic leadership. They will ram through the "Fairness Doctrine". George Orwell couldn't write something this scary. Imagine the damage that can be done to the supreme court. There will be no separation of powers after an Obama nominee is installed on the supreme court. There will be a rubber stamp court each trying to out do each other in left wing ideology. Can you say Supreme court justice William Ayers? I can not even begin to list the legislative agenda that will ensue. Let's not forget the lie about your tax cut. 100% of Americans will have their taxes raised, if they pay taxes. Bush tax cuts are going to be expiring because of Democrats, and that is the same as raising your taxes. But no one calls Obama on it. Then he wants to give "Tax cuts" to people who don't pay taxes : that is welfare ! Of course I must be a racist to even make these comments, because that is the first line of attack by Democrats. All thought and rational thinking is out the window when it comes to discussing the election of a black President. -----

There are many arguments for why Barack Obama was popular with the electorate. He won in a landslide, so it is safe to say his message resonated with voters in 2008. Mr. Ob…ama's supporters would say he won because the country was tired of eight years of failed Republican policies, including an unnecessary and costly war in Iraq; President Bush had become increasingly unpopular, plus the Republican party was in the midst of several corruption scandals. People were ready for a change and they believed John McCain would just be like 4 more years of Bush. Further, Mr. McCain was much older, and seemed out of touch with the problems facing young people. He was not a very good speaker, and the average voter did not warm up to him. So, the public voted for change-- which meant Barack Obama. Mr. Obama's supporters would also say he was charismatic, dynamic, had a bold vision for improving the country, and was a very inspirational figure, especially for young people and minorities, who voted for him in large numbers. He also made excellent use of social media like Facebook and Twitter to mobilize youthful voters, something Mr. McCain did not do. Barack Obama's opponents were very upset about John McCain losing. They blamed the so-called "liberal media," which they believed had been biased against Mr. McCain and overtly favored Mr. Obama. They accused the new president of not being an American citizen, or of having friends who were anti-American. They complained Mr. Obama lacked enough experience, and they said John McCain lost because many Americans wanted a black president rather than the most qualified president. It was a bitter campaign, and many of the hard feelings lingered even after the campaign was over. cuz they r people without brains

There were reports of voter fraud where fictitious and deceased voters were registered. EDIT- There are also reports of aliens landing in the deserts of new mexico. Doesn't ma…ke it true. Many blind as well. Edit- since when are the blind not allowed to vote? Edit- Best answer available- all data available indicates that voter fraud happens at a rate of .0002%, which is statistically insignificant- or about 130 or so cases a year, nationwide. And we don't know whom they voted for. Source- Brennan Center for Justice (NYU School of Law).
