John McCain Beats Barack Obama

I’ve just received a news broadcast from the future and John McCain has beaten Barack Obama by 1 vote!

For the record, I do not endorse either candidate for the President of the United States. My views are more inline with the Republicans than the Democrats. However, I feel America is due for a change. Having said that, Obama views are so liberal they border on socialist. Then again (man, I’m flipping more than a politician), if Obama gets elected you won’t have to worry about your mortgage payments or putting gas in your car. As Shoemoney said, this whole spread the wealth thing is going to be great!

    More importantly, how did the stock market close next week? Now I could make some money with that information!

    1. Ryan McLean says:

      Yea that’d be helpful. And shame on you John for not voting…wait a minute, don’t you live in Canada??? lol. I think the person who made the video is a a bit confused.

      1. I would love to know at what levels the market will close on Friday.

    2. ya i agree if i could see the market for the following week id be a happy guy!!

      The 1 vote video thing was cool when I saw it on Chris Pirillo’s web site blog, and then I saw it on Loren Feldman’s and it was still kind of cool, now it is on John’s web site blog. I hope it stops soon.

      1. That lady is really misinformed. Anyways I think that the future TV lied to you John – the person who will win is Obama!

    4. w00t OBAMA WINS!!!!

    Change is what US needs!

    1. Sohail says:

      What kinda change ? change of a person OR change of party in government or change of system or JUST CHANGE ?

    2. Ben Pei says:

      Yea just what kinda changes does US need?

    3. I’d rather have $$dollars$$, you can keep the change.

  3. FixThePig says:

    I truly hope people don’t believe they will no longer have bills!

  4. The Democrats will probably win next week because most Americans blame the Republicans for the economic troubles in their country. It may be like the victory that the Liberals had over the NDP here in B.C. a while back. The economy in this province was in ruins thanks to NDP socialist incompetence and people voted against them to get rid of them.

    I find it amazing that most voters have no idea who to vote for. They don’t take the time to find out if they’re Republican or Democrat (or the appropriate party in Canada). Their decision is based on what they see on TV. How many voters actually know what the parties stand for?

    1. Truly i would have gone republican but only with Romney as the President as he had experience in creating jobs – something America needs. I don’t know at this point who i am voting for but i really hope whoever comes in is strong enough to do the job!!

    I am going for Obama only reason is for a change

    The problem with spreading the wealth as I see it, is that it has proven fatal to the economies in most parts of the world.

    As entreprenours, we work for our success, and we understand that in order to succed, we need to prepare ourselves, and put action behind our ideas, or we are going nowhere.

    I believe in helping others. But the best way of helping others, is by teaching them to work and succed, and not to get handouts.

    Most entreprenours are the most charitable people around. And the United States has the highest rate of taxation for the top 10% of earners in the world according to the Tax Foundation.

    We already are more socialistic than Constitutionalists would like.

    I align myself more with the independent side of the house, but, as CBS exposed, the Democratic candidate’s policies are not only impractical, but he would be unable to fund them; wich means: another trillion or two deficit.

    That = Bankrupcy= Not Good.

    1. Arfan says:

      I have posted a similar explanation on shoemoney with redistribution of wealth it makes entrepreneurs less willing to invest the reason because its not worth it for them because there money gets redistributed making them work less harder. Why work hard when your money gets given away… This just makes the economy go down if no one is investing, working hard and so on.

    2. Michael Kwan says:

      Proven fatal to most economies around the world? Have you taken a look at many of the systems in Europe that are designed to “spread the wealth”, so to speak? In many parts of Europe they have universal health care, heavily subsidized higher education, and many other so-called “socialist” concepts. Denmark has one of the highest overall tax rates in the world, but its people are also among the happiest in the world.

      1. Michael Kwan says:

        The Republican system will only make the rich richer and the poor poorer, which is worse for the country as a whole.

      2. Michael Yurechko says:

        Kwan,

        Being Canadian we have a different view on everything because we are grown up around a system that, for the most part, works pretty well. I believe in Universal Health Care because I know it works and it’s great for those who aren’t rich enough to afford privatized health care.

        I don’t have a problem with ‘spreading the wealth’ as the main benefit is better quality of life for yourself. You pay into the system and get better health care for yourself (and everyone else), you get better schools (for your children and other people’s children) and many other things that result in everyone paying ‘their fair share.’

        The thing that makes me laugh about the people complaining about obama ‘spreading the wealth’ is that it doesn’t even effect them. 95% of the people in the United States do not make over $250k /yr – so why are you complaining?! If you’re not rich now, you never will be – and it’s not because of the economy or markets that you’re not rich, it’s because you’re lazy.

        1. If you saw the Obama commercial right before 60 Minutes last night, there it was in black and white right on the screen, the income amount is now down to $200,000.

          1. Submerge says:

            It was always at $200,000 for individuals, $250,000 for couples.

          2. Kevin says:

            obamas plan is 200k for families now… it was 250k.

            gaurantee that it is lower in a few months. remember, pelosi will be creating the policy not obama. Obama will only sign it or veto it.

            higher taxes are coming for everyone making over 50k in my opinion.

            sweet. thank you everyone voting for obama.

      3. They’re not happy in Denmark because of universal health care, they’re happy because they’re smokin’ weed dude.

  7. Josten says:

    i’m more with obama and biden then mccainey and palin palin is just dumb as heck and mccain is old old old old.

  8. web hustler says:

    worst post ever john… didnt know shoemoney had redneck racist views as well…

  9. Michael says:

    John, you live in Canada, we’re about as socialist as you get in comparison to other G8 countries. What’s so bad about being socialist? I assume you enjoy living in Canada, otherwise you would’ve already moved to the states.

    1. John Chow says:

      Canada maybe more socialist than the US but its corp tax rate on CCPC is among the lowest of all the G8 nations. 😛 Canada offers the best of both world. Universal medical and only 15% income tax! Learn to work the system, my friend.

      1. Michael Yurechko says:

        Either way, Canada FTW! 😀

        1. Kartik says:

          What is FTW?

      2. Kartik says:

        What is CCPC? what is “Universal” medical?

  10. Dfunda says:

    i am from india. i support Obama 😀

  11. Good old viral videos.

  12. Joe says:

    If you cannot fund it, it will not work, it is as simple as that. And a lot more smart people than us have gone around and around this topic, many times over, and concluded that if around 40% of people in the United States don’t pay taxes, you really cannot give a tax cut to 95%. Simple math.

    In addition, the cost of programs proposed is alot higher than our Gross domestic product.

    Again, The top 10% of our earners pay the highest rate of taxes compared with the rest of the world. Adding more taxes would only bring the economy down, and ship more jobs overseas.

    I do not make $250,000 a year, but what they do not tell you is that by bringing taxes back to Clintonian years, a person in the $40,000 bracket, will suffer a $900 a year tax increase.

    Again, logic and math do not support Democrat economic policies, plus, the same mantras of this year campaign are the same things that I heard and studied Castro used in Cuba, and Chavez used in Venezuela.

  13. Anthony says:

    Very nice post John. My name was too long to fit in!

  14. I think it is a good idea to sometimes make a mock representation of a possible occurrence in the future. It lets us think through how items would be at that time and whether that would be the right way to head towards. I think upward-moving businesses do this at times to envision what it would be like to have their product already on the market. Statistical information is useful, but a small beta-test tends to be even more informative.

  15. Paul says:

    All I can say is that I’m dedicating one of my screens to streaming coverage of the results. Being UK based is handy as the counts should start pouring in during the working day.

  16. Ace: Grow up.

    John Chow: You live in a Socialist country.

  17. Jack says:

    And the blogging circle jerk continues. Bye RSS.

  18. BloggerTests says:

    To me the American Dream is working hard to get what you want. Not, whine, sit on your lazy a** and get money from those who work hard and are successful, this my friends is socialism – bad idea

    just my two cents 🙂

    peace

  19. hahahaha, hilarious John. Your soo famous.

  20. Just like I am Not John Chow, I am not Republican leaning. Go Obama, go!

  21. Keral Patel says:

    Who ever comes all one needs is better decisions taken by him, for the citizens.

  22. friendz says:

    Who ever wins …..i wish them they would do better

  23. Dwayne says:

    I am voting for John Chow.

  24. You are the man, John Chow! We need more people like you in America. Hard-working pro-American Canadians. The way Obama is remaking the country, Canada–hell, even Iran–is more pro-America than America.

    Anyone who works, especially someone who is self-employed or aspires to be, as are most of the people who read this site, would be a fool to ask for Obama taxing businesses, taxing the stock market, and generally restricting any chances the economy has of rebounding for four years, but thankfully, we won’t let that happen.

  25. Ramses says:

    Obama borders socialism? Dream on, he’s not even close! Most socialists are pro-gay-marriage, anti-death sentence, are more extreme when it comes to economics. You could call him a social democrat, yes. But that still doesn’t make him a socialist. Maybe a lot Americans think someone’s a socialist when he raises taxes for the richest to help the poorer?

  26. David King says:

    So if obama get’s elected we all get free houses and gas? i never heard about that! OMG I am so voting for him now!
    JK LOL.

    Life won’t automatically be peaches in cream from this new election…

    Everyone should know that mc’cain and obama aren’t going to “REVOLUTIONIZE” our country~

    Love the video John… I have the exact same one with my name lol…. a friend sent it to me.

    Have an awesome Day!

    David,

  27. Daniel says:

    I was at the Barack Obama rally in Springfield, Missouri yesterday and I can only say that the positive energy and hope that was felt by the 30.000+ in the stadium was AMAZING!!

  28. Joanne says:

    I’ll repost what I said at shoe’s site:

    Personally it bothered me that she said that with her daughters around. I don’t ever want my daughters (or my son) to think that a president or the government is going to step in and make things all better for me. I talk to them about how we must work for what we want and that anything is possible if we do. We don’t wait for the government to lift us up..we do that for ourselves. I don’t want the government to support me. I want them to protect me, my rights and my country….period.

    Also…I went to a Palin rally in Florida yesterday. Talk about excitement! The crowd was so hyped up and she, of course, was superb! 🙂

  29. Larry says:

    I can’t wait til this whole election is over, one way or another!

  30. ben says:

    let’s all fork and spoon together like on big family!!!

  31. joe gelb says:

    hopefully obama wins because the republicans are not big on social issues and alternative energies. also im a big fan of joe biden. joe biden is the funniest person on earth.

  32. I’d say that this one is probably in the bag for Obama, but who really knows. Someone sent that first video to me in an email the other day, I definitely got a kick out of it. That second video though, wow, the last thing this election needs is for Obama supporters to say moronic and uninformed things like that.

  33. BusinessX says:

    I haven’t felt an election this one sided since Reagan beat Mondale, in what all states except Hawaii? Reagan even beat him in his home state.

    Obama will not have that big a win, but it is a done deal. All over except the crying.

  34. Obama fan says:

    I hope it won’t happen.

  35. Cabinet says:

    Unfortunately, you wouldn’t have to worry about your mortgage if McCain is elected, either. Well, scratch that; if you made a responsible purchase, you’d still have to pay, but if you made a bad purchase and you’re under water, McCain’s plan will bail you out.

    I’m voting for the lesser of two evils……not someone I’m particularly fired up about.

  36. America will be even more screwed up should McCain become President. And I don’t even want to think about what would happen if he were to die in office. We’d be stuck with Palin.

    Horrible thought.

  37. Viva Obama! Viva Revolucion! Things must change if they are to remain the same!

  38. mr nice guy says:

    OBAMA WINS. Obama means Oh Be A Man Americans to accept CHANGE in governance.

  39. I really hope people don’t believe they will no longer have bills!
