I'll let my opponent go first, but I'll set some parameters. First, we are talking about the ones running for president, and second PRO has to show J-Mac would be better than Barack, CON has to show that J-Mac wouldn't.

Well, I'll wait for my opponent to post again before I post. If he fails to do that, I'll post my constructive.

As we are almost in the third round, and not a word has been said regarding either side, I would like to end this debate and start a new one on the same topic.

Barack Obama said that he would meet with Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, and Cuba PERSONALLY WITHOUT PRECONDITIONS. So tell me sweatingjojo, what could Obama possibly say to the president of Iran to change his mind about whiping Israel off the map? Or to stop funding millions and millions of dollars Hamas? I know what he'll say..."CHANGE and HOPE." This guy is a joke and is incredibly inexperienced and naieve.

What is the real difference between terrorists and freedom fighters. Throughout history, the United STates has considered any group that supports the "wrong" side a terrorist group, and any group that supports the "right side" freedom fighters. I don't know, that seems a little weird to me.

yeah because we all know that not talking to people makes them more likely to like us.

The sudden and massive outcry from the liberals is a sign of weakness and it's embarrassing. If anything, they would applaud what Bush said, just like the entire Knesset did when he delivered those lines.

Barack Obama would be a disaster in the White House. His inexperience, terrible judgement, naievity, and radical ideology are just what we dont in the United States of America We're a capitalist country that outgrew Europe is just 200 years. Do you know how? CAPITALISM. But Barack Obama wants to appoint liberal judges (which is defiantly against the will of the American people), DOUBLE THE CAPITALS GAINS TAX TO 28%- which i think is one of the most uneducated and moronic things I have seriously ever heard in my life. Most countries dont even have a capital gains tax, AND BARACK OBAMA WANTS TO DOULBE WHAT IT IS NOW (14%) AND RAISE IT TO 28%! Recent studies show that more than half of the population in the United States have stock investments. This includes the middle and lower class dramatically; they are low-income earners and have the little stock they own in the market directed at retirement, maybe some vacations, you get my jist. Barack Obama is going to cripple their earnings from what they would receive under a Conservative administration like Bush (14%). But wait, the GOP is the evil rich party who doesnt care for the rich and whose tax cuts are only for the rich, WHEN UNDER THE BUSH TAX CUTS OF 2001 AND 2003, FAMILIES MAKING $50,000 OR LESS ACTUALLY SAVED 2,000 DOLLARS. The liberals and democrats are the party of the people! YA RIGHT. If only the American population could see through the amazing media bias and see the truth for what it is. The American people are a traditionalist people. They don't want radical "change" that Barack Obama wants: national healthcare, liberal justices, drug legalization, surrender in Iraq, and INCREASED REGULATION AND TAXES. Wake up democrats. You're about to elect the most radical president the United States has ever seen. The United States should not be run by an elitist socialist.
