â€śSt. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign....

Ah, quite true Engineer. What goes along with this article is the Democratic Party's shift to using caucuses in many states. This is the tyranny of a group of people at these caucusing points to force their opinion on other people. This is an extremely bad trend. Still another reason to think about who to vote for. There are many, many reasons to think about, I would say.

Obama has an agenda and it isn't "We The Peole" the way he would have everyone think !!! ... He's the most radical liberal in D.C. and his heart is that of a murderer, liar and a damnably godless deceiver !!!
I pray GOD will open the eyes of his heart and bring him to TRUE REPENTANCE ("IN" Christ and Christ alone) !!!
â€śBarack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society.â€ť

This is what I call a solid response! It's too bad that many christians do not reason like this against SELF-PROCLAIMED evangelical leaders of today who dare to make and impose their own rules on their congregation or city or state or country.
John 16:33: These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
THIS is getting nasty- and it could get worse ( though Zogby thinks it will be a landslide one way or the other)

On Nov. 5, the presidential election winds up in a electoral-college tie, 269-269, the Democrat-controlled House picks Sen. Barack Obama as president, but the Senate, with former Democrat Joe Lieberman voting with Republicans, deadlocks at 50-50, so Vice President Dick Cheney steps in to break the tie to make Republican Sarah Palin his successor. .......... Sound impossible? It's not. There are at least a half-dozen plausible ways the election can end in a tie, and at least one very plausible possibility - giving each candidate the states in which they now lead in the polls, only New Hampshire - which went Republican in 2000 and Democratic in 2004, each time by just 1.5 percent - needs to swap to the Republican column to wind up with a 269-269 tie.
1Ti 2:1-2 "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. "
