Voted McCain. First time in my life I've voted for a Republican president. I'm going to be sick to my stomach if Obama wins. A 3rd grader should be able to see through that guys bullshit.

I'm pretty worried. I think we are all in for a rude awakening next week.

I foresee a lot of small businesses going from a single entity that makes $250k+/yr to multiple entities that only bring in $45k a year.
Have I mentioned that the Isle of Man has 0% corporate income tax rates and 16% personal income tax rate?

It would be a pretty wild thing for a software company in America to sell the rights to their software in Europe (where over 50% of their revenue comes from) to a company in the Isle Of Man for $1.

Just sayin'.

Good for you. I hope other reasonable democrats see it the same way you do. McCain is by no means a "conservative", and he was about my third choice. I've been honest all along about how I voted "against" barry, more than "for" McCain.

I'm not a democrat, nor have I ever been. The Republican party just hasn't had anyone worth voting for since I hit 18 until now. I actually like McCain too. I'm not voting against Obama, I'm voting for McCain. Though I do dislike him enough that I would possibly vote for whoever was running against him. Glad I don't have to make a choice in that manner like I did in the last election.

So, in effect, as much as your intention is for the good, you didn't help at all.
