Greetings one and all, and welcome back for US Election 2008's coverage of the third and final Presidential debate of this election cycle, from the campus of Hofstra University in Long Island, NY. This week, a confident Barack Obama leads in the national polls, but John McCain reckons he's got them right where he wants them. Only the next 3 weeks will tell for sure, but in the mean time tonight's debate represents the only scheduled occasion the two candidates will have to confront one another directly before the election.

We'll be here to highlight key points and ask some questions, but as always this is all about you, so join the fray and tell us what you think. And stay tuned for the post-debate insta-poll... we'll be asking you to tell us who you think won, and why.

homg! businesses pay 35% taxes!!!

except not. that's the base rate. but they keep getting specific cuts and protections and incentives and almost none pay that rate... except maybe the small businesses who can't afford a big, fancy accountant.

btw. there's more to choosing a location for your business than tax rates. even with our tax rate and our rising employment costs, companies have been moving jobs back to the states because their consumers are here and shipping is RIDONCULOUS. (yes. i did just use that word.)

also, mccain's not wearing a flag pin!!!!!!!!!
