He's leading a party which has overseen the US economy descend into chaos,and which has had some of the lowest approval ratings in history.He'll keep sending troops to Iraq and Afghanistan,when both of these conflicts are unpopular and seen as being morally wrong.He'll simply be Bush bit in another incarnation.Why do people vote for him???????????????? And if its because Obama's black and that means people don't want to vote for him,then America should be ashamed of itself.
The problem of America is the uncontrolled spending ! Its a modern day roman empire, way too big and too many funded projects to be withdrawn right now. As far as Iraq is concerned once Saddam was captured its job over. The army should have come back home .. so that's a point of contention among both senators. But having said that McCain has detailed a plan as to how he is planning to withdraw forces in the next 4 years from Iraq & Afg. That's what we exactly want. We need to stop that unwanted spending and push them on reforms here at home.
The problem with Obama is the set of promises which he claims to fullfill. These were the promises exactly made by John Kerry & George Bush when they fought with one another. " Outsourcing " is a hot topic and " Rise of China & India ", come to think of it frankly. Outsourcing is an integral part of american business. We can't do without outsourcing. Simply because the industry doesn't have the cheap labor available. Obama talks about eliminating outsourcing and promoting local talent. Let me give you an example. India is the current leader in Software exports. They have almost 60,000 students graduating every year with a Bachelors or Masters in Computer Science or Engineering. The same in USA is about one quarter of it. Moreover the students here aren't flexible in their work schedule, but in India those people are ready to work like 60 hours a week to get the job done. We cannot expect this in america, because every employee talks abt social life after work ! I m not saying that you should work beyond the required time, but when you have a critical task, all i see in my office is that the Indian immigrants & Chinese immigrants working their ass off to get the job completed on time. Moreover he is also talking manufacturing everything in united states. Cmon think of this - most of the electronics products from american firms are fabricated in Taiwan or Malaysia and assembled in Singapore or China. Nobody can make as good semicondutors as Taiwan or France. Why would a company simply want to pull this off from them and have their own manufacturing plant. Outsourcing this kind of work is because we get better quality at cheaper price and there is no available local vendor or manufacturer for this. Rise of China is being considered as a biggest threat by Obama .. i honestly have to laugh at this. First we thought Kuwait, then Iraq, Afghanistan, N Korea & now China ???? Give me a break. They are peacefully growing their economy ... and where does India become a threat ? They have signed up a new Nuclear deal with USA & contribute 2% towards Global GDP. So these kind of morbid obsession of Obama can keep the unaware americans under cover but the grads are not going to be in his favor. I am not saying McCain is the holy god. He has his share of mistakes but he can be a better person in rebuilding the economy than Obama. Republicans are known to have brought in FDI & Local development more than the Democrats.
All we are looking for is to have more money to pay off our debts. Where do we get it frm ? Only through tax cuts. We pay almost 25% salary to federal tax, 15% to state tax. If a person earns 100,000 USD per year, he pays off 40,000 USD for tax ! Now if we get a waiver on federal tax, what we would pay is 15,000 USD ! That's pretty good, it relaxes the burden and leaves an option for more money flow into the market.
Nobody says that Obama is black and hence we won't vote for him. Its the policies which we look for, not for color. I am Mclaren fan and staunch supporter of Lewis Hamilton. By the way when you state something like this, i would suggest you to think twice before you post. If America should be ashamed of itself, then what did a British Citizen do to an Indian named Shilpa Shetty who participated in Big Brother show in UK ?? Think of it.
