Can you explain what you are SO afraid of?
You sound just like what everyone has said in the past, for many years. I've heard it all before.  But nothing has changed and nothing will no matter how much you want to believe (in fairytales).
 If you really love your country the democrats are not the way to go. Can't you see what they are doing.  They all talk about the 'little guy' but the ones running the party are not so little.  They want more taxes from YOU. They want to keep you down while they tell you it's for the good of society. Was socialism good for Russia and elsewhere.  Every country where they tried to make people equal has failed.  You can't keep taking from one to give to another and have that keep working.  If Nancy Pelosie is so concerned about people, why doesn't she give 1/2 her money away to those who need it more.  LOL, that would be better than her being in politics.
 I don't think and I don't see how anyone with strong religious ideas is going to bother my future in the USA. Unless they come from a radical foreign country. If you think we are going to not have any freedom because someone else believes in a god, I'd like to know how.
At least we know what she thinks.  I'm more worried about those nuts like Scientologists who are not as much on the public eye. I mean, not in the same way as a long established religion.  I think they are still considered fringe so no on is paying attention.  They are literally scaring people and it's not something that 'might be' as in the case of a VP might be elected, it really is, now.
There are a lot of things to fear, or not, but I really doubt that if anyone so religious gets elected they are going to knock on your door and take you (or your rights) away.
Life goes on,

>If you are thinking of voting for someone other than McCain or Obama, you are taking away a vote from Obama which means that you are actually voting for McCain.  Anyone giving their vote to McCain in this way means that they don't care what happens to the future of this country. They only care about their own idealism and in their conceit, they will certainly guarantee that their ideals will never become popular. The point is to keep our country free. Religious Fundamentalism will take away that freedom. The bottom line is that if you vote for anyone except Obama, you are voting for a Religious Fundamentalist Administration which will be worst then the previous Administration.
