Final Obama canvassing

With less than 48 hours until Election Day, the local Obama headquarters are buzzing with activity. Obama supporters spent the day canvassing neighborhoods in Wilmington. They targeted registered Democratic and undecided households. Campaign volunteers reported back to a staging area where they tallied up their numbers. They also made sure people are ready for Election Day and have a ride to the polls.

Beware Charismatic Men Who Preach 'Change' Editor, Richmond Times-Dispatch: Dear Sir; Each year I get to celebrate Independence Day twice. On June 30 I celebrate my independence day and on July 4 I celebrate America's. This year is special, because it marks the 40th anniversary of my independence. On June 30, 1968, I escaped Communist Cuba and a few months later I was in the United States to stay. That I happened to arrive in Richmond on Thanksgiving Day is just part of the story, but I digress. I've thought a lot about the anniversary this year. The election-year rhetoric has made me think a lot about Cuba and what transpired there. In the late 1950s, most Cubans thought Cuba needed a change, and they were right. So when a young leader came along, every Cuban was at least receptive. When the young leader spoke eloquently and passionately and denounced the old system, the press fell in love with him. They never questioned who his friends were or what he really believed in. When he said he would help the farmers and the poor and bring free medical care and education to all, everyone followed. When he said he would bring justice and equality to all, everyone said "Praise the Lord." And when the young leader said, "I will be for change and I'll bring you change," everyone yelled, "Viva Fidel!" But nobody asked about the change, so by the time the executioner's guns went silent the people's guns had been taken away. By the time everyone was equal, they were equally poor, hungry, and oppressed. By the time everyone received their free education it was worth nothing. By the time the press noticed, it was too late, because they were now working for him. By the time the change was finally implemented Cuba had been knocked down a couple of notches to Third-World status. By the time the change was over more than a million people had taken to boats, rafts, and inner tubes. You can call those who made it ashore anywhere else in the world the most fortunate Cubans. And now I'm back to the beginning of my story. Luckily, we would never fall in America for a young leader who promised change without asking, what change? How will you carry it out? What will it cost America? Would we? Manuel Alvarez Jr. Sandy Hook.


before Fidel in Cuba there was a charismatic guy in Germany named Adolf. Cuba is still in the toilet economically and it will take a generation to fix that problem. Let Obama and wealth redistribution take hold and in 4 short years we will be in the gutter and our Grandchildren will be cleaning up the remmnants of his mess.

Obama and Guns

Thirty-eight states allow law abiding citizens to carry concealed weapons for self defense. Guess who wants a federal law to take away those states' rights, and make concealed carry a federal crime?

if you paid attention

He is not taking your HUNTING GUNS away, he is taking your AK47's away. Pay attention!

Concealed AK-47s????

You are the one who had better pay attention. You have no idea who you are even voting for. Obama has been consistently on record against gun owners in EVERY SINGLE VOTE he has ever cast! As far as not taking away out "hunting guns," why did he vote for S.397 in 2005, which would have outlawed every center-fire rifle ammunition made, to include grandpa's old .30-30? Learn the TRUTH!

Concealed carry doesn't have

Concealed carry doesn't have to be ak47's. It can also be handguns. Think about it the next time you hear of a young woman attacked or a family slaughtered.

You shine as a premier example...

...of someone who should not be voting, because you don't know the technical aspects of the issues. First, if you want to conceal an AK-47, plan on buying a very baggy trench coat. It's a rifle/carbine, Nimrod. Second, people have a right to own handguns. That was the entire basis of the recent Supreme Court decision over the District of Columbia banning them outright. I'm alive today because I carried a handgun. This will no doubt shock you, but good guys carry sidearms, too. Contrary to what you want to believe, strapping on a firearm does NOT make you a crazed killer. Thirty-eight states now allow law-abiding citizens the right to carry concealed weapons for self-defense, or to protect the life of an innocent third party. What part of "law abiding" confuses you and Obama? Don't want us defending ourselves against your buddies? BTW, a mugger tried to attack my daughter about two years ago, and the .40 caliber SiG she was carrying ended that issue immediately. I guess smart young women can handle themselves when attacked? Learn about firearms before you try to pontificate about them.

Oh yea

I have to remember the guns fired themselves and slaughtered that family. Surely a LOW LIFE CRIMINAL couldn't have fired that gun. Get a clue...

paying attention

we'll need those ak47's if obama is elected because their will be some that want to get "theirs" now. before the new socialist order can take it. and the new order don't want resistance from the gun lovin' bible readin' rednecks that have antipathy for the new order think when you vote
