    • Those taxes are going for infrastructure repair right? You know highway work, bridges, etc. We should have streets of gold.

      No doubt about that. You know, it is interesting that the anti-oil crowd never talks about how much tax revenue the governments receive from the oil industry. Plus the lease revenue. Add all of it together, and it is more than the profits of all of the big five combined.

      And you are more intelligent? Tell me, how much formal education do you have? What have you accomplished in your life?

    • OBAMA will put pressure on Bush Partners in the Gulf to increase production, OPEC works based on who is in the white house, OBAMA is a strong signal its about time to change, Bush and Mccain are Oil partners with the rich gulf states.

      • Did you know that most of our imported oil comes from Canada?
        Has Bush got partners there?

      • I dont think the US has the leverage it used to have over the gulf states.China and india have a large say in oil consumption and will probably pass the US in consumption in the next decad. i am not a citizen here so cant vote but think its hilarious how suddenly its the Bush/Mccain white house not bush/chaney. Are american voters really that naive that they believe everything put out by their political parties/media outlets.LMAO

    • And he will taxes or texas the middle class? Duh, are there taxes in texas? You sound like a winner.

      No you have it all wrong, Barack and the Democrats are good for oil prices. Do you recall what happened two years ago.... the Democrats regained control of both houses of Congress and gas has doubled in price since then. America got Part I of a two part II movie. We've all just lived through CHANGE Part I, stay tuned to Part II when Barack ascends to the Presidency and the Democrats control all three houses of our Federal government. Oh boy I just can't wait for more CHANGE.

      CAPITAL GAINS TAX

      MCCAIN
      0% on home sales up to $500,000 per home (couples). McCain does not propose any change in existing home sales income tax.

      OBAMA
      28% on profit from ALL home sales. (How does this affect you? If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the money you make from your home will go to taxes. This proposal will adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their homes as part of their retirement income.)

      DIVIDEND TAX

      MCCAIN
      15% (no change)

      OBAMA
      39.6% - (How will this affect you? If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds, college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the money earned on taxes if Obama becomes president. The experts predict that 'Higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the stock market, yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.')

      INCOME TAX

      MCCAIN

      (no changes)
      Single making 30K - tax $4,500
      Single making 50K - tax $12,500
      Single making 75K - tax $18,750
      Married making 60K- tax $9,000
      Married making 75K - tax $18,750
      Married making 125K - tax $31,250

      Single making 50K - tax $14,000
      Single making 75K - tax $23,250

      Married making 75K - tax $21,000
      Married making 125K - tax $38,750
      Under Obama, your taxes could almost double!

      INHERITANCE TAX

      MCCAIN
      - 0% (No change, Bush repealed this tax)

      OBAMA
      Restore the inheritance tax

      Many families have lost businesses, farms, ranches, and homes that have been in their families for generations because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will only lose them to these taxes.

      NEW TAXES PROPOSED BY OBAMA

      New government taxes proposed on homes that are more than 2400 square feet. New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren't high enough already) New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water, electricity) New taxes on retirement accounts, and last but not least....New taxes to pay for socialized medicine so we can receive the same level of medical care as other third-world countries!!!

      • LOL. You are one simple naive dufus. Each category you mentioned can't be answered with a definite yes or no. You aren't even mentally old enough to vote anyways, boy. It'll be a relief to see Obama sworn in. Get your tissue out and get ready to shed those crocodile tears. mcbush ain't got a chance. Last nights speech said it all. All the republicans stating they'll be voting democrat should tell you who's gonna win. bush/cheney, what a waste they've created. Anyone voting for mcbush, listen up. Your mother had a rare blood disease, was a chronic alcoholic and a 5 pack a day chain smoker when she was pregnant with you, which accounts for your brain damage. Obama.....a breath of fresh air, gramps....an old smelly fart. You wanna see something cute? Watch Obama chew up and spit out gramps when debate time comes. Some children never learn. Please watch their debates and learn something. Watch gramps continue to bring up past events and issues, that's all the old man has to stand on, while Obama looks forward to a better future. Look backwards, or forwards? it's a no-brainer. Knowledge and wisdom. Good luck America

      • you forgot his voting record -
        NONE .!
