because we're not hearing this much in the news

Look, I consider myself a centrist, and although I didn't support McCain in the primaries, I'm voting for him because I feel he's much more moderate than Obama. I'm not madly in love with either candidate, but as most of my LJ friends are Obamaites, I've bitten my tongue a whole lot more than you might imagine. But my liberal friends haven't hesitated to comment, and some of their comments have been, frankly, angry and hateful, rather than focused on any issue. Surely they won't mind a look from the other side? I keep finding this stuff that just doesn't seem to be showing up in the mainstream media, so I decided to gather some links to some ideas that most people aren't hearing. These are hardly balanced, but as far as I can tell they're legitimate concerns, as opposed to that much more blind "Obama's a Muslim" baseless rantings, so they're worth thinking about.

Just the same, I'm again disabling comments. Why? Because what's the point? Let's be honest, everyone who's seriously paying attention has already decided who they're going to vote for, and a big long discussion isn't going to change anyone's minds. Look at these or don't; send them on yourself or don't. If you've already determined to support Obama, who pretty much has this election wrapped up, I'd suggest just passing on by.

Hey all, this is Emily. Mark wanted me to make a post for him - he's terribly sick with some sort of stomach flu, and didn't want you all to feel neglected. He's been lying in bed in a heap all day clutching his tummy and such. :(

He'll be back soon!
