    Card Player,

    He will be taxing BIG Oil!! Why do repubs only hear what they want? Let's think about who is giving free money to people who don't pay taxes...hmmmm....BUSH! Remember those "rebates"..including those to people who pay ZERO taxes! Or how about one trillion dollars to buy banks. REPUBLICANS ARE SOCIALISTS!

    I'm kinda looking forward to seeing the celebs squeel (My applogies to "Deliverance") if Obama wins. Of course the celebs will be made to share their wealth?

    "Celebs are no different from us..they would just benefit from McCain tax cuts, unlike the people on this blog, who would benefit from Obama's cuts."

    Until he taxes the small businesses out of business taking their jobs. I don't want to sell my job for a quick $1000 from Obama. Thanks anyway.

    Why can't celebrities tell us whom they support? People on the WRAL comment boards never shutup about whom they are supporting for president.

    Celebs are no different from us..they would just benefit from McCain tax cuts, unlike the people on this blog, who would benefit from Obama's cuts. Yet the celebs know that Obama would be better for the United States' place in the world--and we would be safer, economically stronger, and smarter (funding science).

    They just found Obama's Aunt who he talks about so fondly in his book. See how he looks out for his kin? Think of what he will do for you.

    Anyone who votes Obama (who, by the way, WILL NOT salute the American Flag!) will be crying in their beer later. Wait and see. RetGr6

    Ashley Judd is a great person. She gives her time to other humanitarian things, unlike getting her name in the paper and having her picture taken all the time. She is a very private person and I am sure she is not using her celebrity for anything other than early voting. Unless you have forgotten this is a very tight race and everyone should be encouraged to get out early and VOTE. No matter who tells you.
