"I'd like you to also express your views on McCain's contributions to our country - and let's NOT hear one more time that he was a POW (I don't think that qualifies him to be President). I don't expect you to dwell on the fact that he was with Cindy for 9 months (after lying to her about his age) while still living with his wife and children - after all, he saw a young, lovely and very wealthy woman who could help his future. BUT I have yet to hear what he has really accomplished in his 26 years as a "pubic servant". And I might add that Obama's record is not that long in the Senate, but do remember his age!"
You totally missed the point. I'm NOT touting McCain and clearly state that he is not my first choice. What I AM saying is that Obama is the worst choice you could possibly imagine. He's a socialist who wants to raise taxes - and don't believe that crap about 95% won't be affected, 45% already don't pay ANY taxes - and who wants the redistribution of wealth, meaning he wants to stifle growth and entrepreneurship. As Winston Churchill once perspicaciously said, "Taxing your way to prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket trying to lift himself by the handle",
McCain has fought against gov't spending, pork barrel earmarks and warned that unless the Demoncats did something to curb these phony loans that a disaster could occur. They wouldn't listen and look what happened.
Are you seriously considering voting for a man you know nothing about? A man who voted "Present" over 90 times to evade the issues. A man of no experience whatsoever of governing anything? A man who has consistently lied about his past? A man who must have spent 20 years sleeping in church while the rabid Reverend Wright swore at our country? A man who stated in his book that (paraphrased) "If things turn ugly, I'd have to take the Muslim position"? A man who refuses to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, sing the National Anthem or follow protocol when the Anthem is played? Surely you can't be serious.
While I agree that heroic deeds don't qualify you to become President, let me ask you what attributes you find so exciting about this inexperienced Obama who never served his country in the military, knows nothing about the military, has no voting record in the Senate, who wouldn't vote against partial-birth abortion in Illinois and the list goes on.
If you want youth and inexperience go ahead and vote for Obama. If you do, however, you'll live to regret it - mark my words.
Thank you for your interest.
