With chelsea clinton

I have been watching carefully and closely what is going on in US election of 2008. I am trying to understand what  American people think about their politicians. Why do they vote for this one instead of that one? What do they like about republican or democratic ! What are their priorities? Does U.S government reflect what the American people think and believe ! Questions that kept digging my mind for so long!
Chelsea Clinton came to PSU last week to campaigned for her mother and i got the chance to listen to her speech and answers
Here is my thoughts of her answers:
1)
Chelsea in her answers to the students repeated continually ” my mom has done this … my mom has done that” I think that weaken her credibility.
2)
There was a really good question about the size of the individual rights. Chelsea believes that abortion as well as homosexuality are individual’s right and that government shouldn’t interfere that .
Conservative people in other side, think the opposite. The same sex marriage would threaten the (humanity) because it is against  the nature of human being and the teaching of the Bible,,,
as for Abortion, they believe that Mothers don’t have the right to do the abortion 
The argument goes back and forth about this but do you think that American people should be concern about ( homosexuality and abortion issues) more than the Economy issue and Iraq war… I don’t know??

    As an American, I think personal choices are best left to the people. I am against abortion, so I wouldnt advise anyone to get one. I am against homosexuality, but that is MY choice.

    At the end of the day it is up to God to judge us. For me what is more important is what our nation is doing in OUR name. Our war in Iraq, our unjust policies against the Palestinians.

    That is being done in MY name. If someone chooses to get an abortion, it is their choice, I have no role in it.

    We we send bombs to Israel my tax money plays a role in it.

    I totally agree with you. I think our personal choices can’t be controlled by a government law or legislation. We can minimize the causes of abortion and homosexuality by different ways
    i really think that American people should think more about what is the best for their nation.
    the war in Iraq damage the image of US all around the world. American shouldn’t really think that it is about wining or losing the war. it is about values and principles.

    thanks so much for your comment

    Speaking of Chelsea Clinton:

    There is bad news about her father.

    It is opined that Bill Clinton committed racist hate crimes, and I am not free to say anything further about it.

  4. Hmmm, I see your point of view and definitely I am much more aware of the Palestinians and Israel now that I have Syrian friends, but I don’t know if most Americans are aware of this conflict to the degree that others are.

    As for the issues you mentioned, I feel I am speaking up for the very weakest members of society – the unborn – when I oppose abortion. They have no voice – literally – so why not support those who will protect them? And the homosexual agenda, I am sorry, but I can’t allow them to teach that alternative lifestyles are OK and normal. I simply don’t agree that God intended two men to have sex and two women to have sex. If they weren’t so adamant in teaching kids that it’s normal, I wouldn’t have as much of a problem with it.

    Regardless of how you feel about that, my reason for voting for certain candidates has absolutely nothing to do with which ones are going to be the hardest on the Arabs. Truly, I have never heard anyone of my friends, family or acquaintances say such things. Sadly, I believe some of my Arab friends believe those who vote for certain candidates do it for that reason when, in fact, we simply don’t want abortion and homosexuality OK’d since we believe it contradicts our values.
