I am voting for Obama. I wish I didn't have to. A lot of his politics are too liberal and socialist for me.
But McCain is the greater of two evils. He says it won't be a "third Bush term", but I can't take the chance. Bush has destroyed our standing with other nations. He has shredded our Constitution. And I cannot risk voting for a candidate who voted 90%+ for Bush's policies. We cannot risk another administration that is unilateral. We must engage with the world, not antagonize or threaten them all the time.
Might does not make right. The Roman Empire had might. And now it is a dusty memory. I do not want to see the country I love become a memory.
Palin was the last insult to my intelligence from McCain. The thought of this woman being a heartbeat away from the Presidency frightens me. She is the governor of a state that has fewer residents than a lot of cities in California. She was a pander choice for women and the extreme right wing of the Republican party.
This man who voted for Reagan twice mourns the loss of a party I once loved. I have been an Independant for 16 years now.
Why couldn't we have done better than these two?
"I finally have my heart!"
To the perps: Don't worry about me coming after you. But you damn well better watch out for God! "Vengeance is mine", saith the Lord
