    ITA with Kyla. I wouldn't want to make a lifelong commitment to the first guy I ever had sex with, and I wouldn't want to deny myself & a man I really care about the wonderful sex we could be having if he's not the guy I want to marry. I wanted to know that we were compatible in *every* way before making that commitment. It took us 10 years to get married; I can't imagine not having sex all that time. No thank you.

    Here I disagree. I get the comparison and think it is funny, but I would hope losing your virginity would be a much bigger decision than who you will vote for. If you were to ask me each person I have voted for since I was old enough to vote, I would not be able to tell you. I would however, be able to (but I won't) tell you who I have slept with. Losing your virginity is a big deal. Yes, voting is too, but not to the same extent.

    I guess that's why you like the ad and I think its tasteless.

    This board is good for me. So many times I only see things from one POV. This attitude is completely foreign to me. I know no one in real life (That I am close enough to talk to about it) that would have this take on things. Even if they were in support of premarital sex, it is not something they would so openly admit. I live it the heart of the bible belt and if you expressed such an attitude out loud you would be looked at like you have 3 heads. It is a good reminder to me that not everyone feels the same on these issues.

    I agree with Stacey. I don't equate sex with marriage at all. My husband was not my first nor was I his. I don't regret my first time and the person it was with at all. I'm glad it was him. I think it is funny on the different viewpoints (not ha ha funny) because I know of no one IRL that was a virgin when they married or when they met the person they married.

    I took this more on the line of...intelligent voting requires time and thought just like intelligent choice of who you pick for your first time. It's not a great idea to lose your virginity without thinking and planning it so you know you are sure of your choice same for voting.

    Yes I don't think this one is the worst one, I'm sure there are women who fit right in with it. The problem is that those women are probably already voting for Obama, so I don't think he is winning any new voters with this kind of ad.

    I haven't seen the one you are talking about, but the kids singing this is one of the worst ones I think. Disgusting.

    Imagine an America
    Where strip mines are fun and free
    Where gays can be fixed
    And sick people just die
    And oil fills the sea

    We don’t have to pay for freeways!
    Our schools are good enough
    Give us endless wars
    On foreign shores
    And lots of Chinese stuff

    We’re the children of the future
    American through and through
    But something happened to our country
    And we’re kinda blaming you

    We haven’t killed all the polar bears
    But it’s not for lack of trying
    The Earth is cracked
    Big Bird is sacked
    And the atmosphere is frying

    Congress went home early
    They did their best we know
    You can’t cut spending
    With elections pending
    Unless it’s welfare dough

    We’re the children of the future
    American through and through
    But something happened to our country
    And we’re kinda blaming you

    Find a park that is still open
    And take a breath of poison air
    They foreclosed your place
    To build a weapon in space
    But you can write off your au pair

    It’s a little awkward to tell you
    But you left us holding the bag
    When we look around
    The place is all dumbed down
    And the long term’s kind of a drag

    We’re the children of the future
    American through and through
    But something happened to our country
    And yeah, we’re blaming you

    You did your best
    You failed the test
    Mom and Dad
    We’re blaming you!

    Gloria-
    I agree! All of the political positions expressed in that song (like "gay people can be/should be fixed" and "let sick people die if they can't afford care" are disgusting!!!!
