John McCain promises to establish a system that will curb greenhouse gas emissions, mobiliz innovative technologies and strengthen the economy. His primary goal is to introduce the "Cap and Trade Policy", in which he will set limits on greenhouse gas emissions and also encourgae the development of "low-cost compiance options". This mechanism will set a limit on greenhouse gas emissions and allow entities to buy and sell rights to emit. This mechanism allows market to decide and encourage the lowest-cost compliance options.
I do not agree with John McCain's Climate Change views. On his websitee, he doesn't really seem to care at all about the environment as much as he does about the economy. Everything he proposes is somehow connected to saving money for big companies, which he is known for. He doesn't stress exactly what we will do to protect our environment, which is suspicious. I don't think his plan will work because it doesn't put climate change before other issues. McCain also seems very vague in his plans, at least from my point of view.
Obama's plan is to go green, he believes that businesses should use advanced coal fuels instead of fossil fuels. Obama plans to use hybrid cars and use fuel- efficient cars. The cars we use and the fuel we use should be considered. Also Obama believes the reduction of oil usage would help the economy and help people with job search. I believe it would work because people rather drive than use public transportation because its more rapid.
senator Obama plans to provide help fpr struggling famillies at the gas pump. He wants to help create 5 million new jobs by investing 150 billions in the next 10 years. He want in ten years to reduce the amount of oil we import from the middle East and Venezuela.

Barack Obama supports the whole idea on going green and helping the environment rather than just focusing on the economic issues. Obama wants to build a clean energy future by creating five million new jobs and investing $150 billion as the effort to build a better tomorrow. Oil is a big conflict within the entire world and Obama plans to save more oil than we import. Another idea that Obama has to help build a cleaner future is to put 1 million Plug-in-Hybrid cars on the road by 2015 that are build here in America. "We are committed to getting at least 25 percent of our electricity from renewable sources by 2025". Obama wants to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050. Aside from all the money that has been lost, Obama plants to help the country in every possible way. The "going green" issue is a big issue because what does it matter to have all the money and wealth when the earth is at stake and we could possibly die? Obama fills every aspect of the presidential position because he is targeting every possible issue that needs to be fixed.

I believe Obama's idea is fair and would help solve poverty issues. However, would it be sufficient? Because there is already a large variety of poor Americans and who would help them? Especially with the economis crisis, mor people are losing jobs and product prices are increasing rapidly. More and more people are saving money rather than spending even if there is a sale. Also the plan might attract schemes thus to get money from federal government and pay less tax by faking income salaries and making false documentaries.
Personally, I think the idea would work because America is a nation full of business corporation and Americans are trying to find ways to lessen the chance of killing ourselves and earth. If McCain's proposal is passed companies would reduce the usage of fuels for money. However, where would McCain get the money in order to reward the business owners? Answer: Tax payers

John McCain basically plans to help the economy by lowering the taxes. In lowering the taxes he plans on helping and giving breaks for the businesses and their investments in equipment and technology. In addition, McCain wants to establish a permanent tax credit for research and development. Although i personally dont go for McCain, I agree with his views on the economy. He is building a plan that will positively affect each and every one of us. McCain doesnt promise on raising anything or job opportunities just simply is showing a relevant idea of something that can help with the economy's progress. As stated on John McCain's website, "John McCain will act immediately to reduce the pain of high gas prices". Nowaday that is a very big issue; family and their financial predicaments. I think that in reality, almost every family within the United States of America is facing the unfair prices and being harshly affected. John McCain stated that dependence on foreign oil will come to an end. America is one of the most powerful countries in general so they should have another way to get oil. Overall we need a president that is going to make the world in which we are living a better place. By makin the world a better place is to pursue the happiness of each American Citizen.

senator Obama said that the war in iraq and in afghanistan is a major distraction to our real issues such as capturing osama bin ladin and others involved in the 9/11 attack. he said that the iraqui war has lasted longer than world war I, world war II and the civil war. More than 40,000 soldiers have died, and its because of the war that were in this economic crisis right now.
I completely agree with Obamas pln. I dont agree with war for any reason. I think negotiation will work better for this country and the world, for that matter, as opposed to violence. The only thing war did for us was cause more trouble. Innocent people were either killed or lost loved ones basically for no valid reason. I think Obama is a strong and persistant person that will make this plan work.- Amirah
Obama pointed out the fact that this war with Iraq has been ongoing lasting longer than World War 1, Word War II, and the civil war. Because it is so continous, the country's economy is going down hill due to the fact that the United states may spend 2.7 trillion on this war. The war basically ties into many of the issues that we are facing today. Obama wants to put an end to the war and plans to do so with his 16 months troops removal plan. The removal of the troops will be at a pace of one or two brigades a month. Taking into consideration, more than 4,000 americans have died, and more than 60,000 have been injured. What is the cause of the war, and why is there still no progress? I agree with Obama because the war is demonstrating the block spot of the our country. The war is dragging the country down hill in a sense because it is triggering the economy, financial need and most important it has a negative impact on most of the citizens. In order to progress, obviously we must get rid of the war.
The most populare debate is the upcoming decision of the Iraq and Afghanistan War. Everyone knows that McCain was a prisoner of war and is a supporter of war. McCain had stated "...the United States to support the Government of Iraq to become capable of governing itself and safeguarding its people." He states that if United States drop out of the war, Iraq would be in chaos and in a crisis. McCain believes that Iraq would be lost and if we are not there for them, they would be a failure. As he stated, "Iraqis need to know that the U.S. will not abandon them..." However, if we continue the war, we as American would be in debts. The idea of continuing the war was already disagreeable and believing that we are helping the Iraqis, is unbelieveable.

McCain suggests that healthcare be charged upon how much each family makes and that they should be responsible for their own healthcare. McCain wants to reform health care making it affordable to all the people and will used tax codes to do so. Although I am not a republican nor do i agree with their views, I completely agree with McCain's views on healthcare. If you give the nation everything, they will not work for it therefore they will turn lazy. We need a nation that is up on their feet all the time and willing to work for one another and for themselves. By McCain suggesting that government should not pay for healthcare, I agree beacause it will motivate the individual to work harder to get better health care. However, if an individual is disabled, or is not capable of working for one reason or the other, they should be provided with free healthcare and of the same quality. Usually free health care is not as good, and it is a lot more complicated. They have to wait in longer lines and the doctor's probably don't treat them the same. In most cases, the citizens have to work harder and depend on themselves and not the government like for healthcare. But that all applies to a certain extent as said before.
