    If you don't want it to turn into a debate, you can ask me to close it for comments, but people can still vote in your poll. It's a lot to ask to post this type of poll but not have it turn into some sort of debate.

    None of the others specifically ask "Who are you voting for?".

    I don't know if anyone wants my opinion, but I picked don't vote, only cause I can't in the states. I'd go obama, mainly because McCain seems like bush the third, and I can't stand the guy. Not for any of the reasons most do, but because the is the least Canada-friendly president ever.....lol

    NDB found veteran's issues especially interesting this time around.

    The non-partisan group Disabled American Veterans give McCain a 20% approval rating on his voting record supporting vets, whereas Obama received an 80% approval rating. Why?

    • Obama was one of 57 co-sponsors (along with Joe Biden) of the Webb GI Bill, signed into law June 30. McCain not only did not support the bill, claiming it was too generous, but also didn't even show up in the Senate to vote on it.

    • Obama introduced a bill in April 2007 to provide housing for low-income veterans (Homes for Heroes Act). Again, McCain didn't show up for the vote. This version of the Homes for Heroes Act died, though a similar follow-up bill fortunately awaits a new vote in the Senate.

    • In 2006, Obama voted for two amendments to increase funds for veterans' medical care by $1.5 billion and expand funding for Department of Veterans Affairs outpatient treatment by $450 million. McCain voted no on both; the veterans' medical care amendment died; the outpatient treatment amendment passed.

    • In 2005, Obama voted for an amendment to increase funding for veterans' medical care by $2.8 billion in 2006 and set aside $10 million for veterans counseling services. Again, McCain voted no; this amendment died.

    Campaign contributions from military personnel show it too. Obama has received donations from six times as many members of the Armed Forces as McCain has. A big contrast, since in the last election, Bush had the support of 80% of service men and women.

    NDB rolled his eyes and laughed in the last debate when McCain said "Veterans know I'll take care of them!". NDB was in the Army for 10 years, and us Arizonans are very familiar with McCain's anti-vet stances; his poor record on these issues is well known in his own state.

    No, it's okay Dustin. As long as people can state FACTS instead of stuff they read in an email forward, and be respectful of each other, opinions should be expressed freely.

    Dustin just my opinion, I would rather "waste" my vote and have it go for the man/woman that I want to be elected than vote with someone because I dont have confidence in their opponents.

    I can't vote, haha. I know I wouldn't vote for Obama becuase he wants to take away our guns and wants to reject deer ammunition. I also came home from the Wal mart today and I notices this huge mccain and palin sign next to the animal shelter/veternarian. the sign was at least 5 feet long and 4 feet tall. I also know that my local firearms store has a mccain and palin sign. My mom likes Obama and my dad likes mccain but was going to vote for ron paul or mitt romney. also my uncle was in the army for 3-5 years so far and he is a ranger. he said that most of the troops booed obama while there was only a small group of troops that stayed with him. he also said something about jesse james cam to the enginers and made a drag racer?? who is he?

    hibye you need to stop listening to people and do your own independent research because your facts are wrong, obama doesnt want to take away anyones guns and in an interview he did on NBC he said he even supported the latest interpretation of the second amendment which let people in D.C own firearms
