No to McCain



“Hillary Clinton, she’s my girl,” that is what my friends have heard me say with pride and affection many times. On the contrary, they also heard me say with passion and disgust, “No way in hell! No-bama-no-way! Not going to happen!” But alas, to my own surprise, it has become crystal clear to me that Barack Obama is the best choice for President over John McCain.

My first choice, Hillary Clinton lost; she didn’t win, and is not running against John McCain for the POTUS. I understand the lingering disappointment, frustrations, and anger over the 2008 Democratic primary. I share those feelings; however, I am enough of a realist to see that voting McCain, just to protest the primary process, the MSM, Barack Obama or the DNC, is akin to drinking poison.

If McCain were to win the general election the Republican Party would remain in power. That in of itself should provide enough reason not to vote for John McCain.

There is not one single segment of the United States that isn’t currently in dire straights: Economy, Iraq, Education, Transportation, Housing, Veterans Affairs, Civil Liberties, Research and Development, Immigration, Healthcare, Homeland Security, Internet Security, Foreign Policy, Trade, etc., you name it! Casting your vote for continued Republican leadership in Washington would be harmful to the USA and the entire world.

Additionally, John McCain strongly disagrees with those who advocate withdrawing American troops from Iraq. John McCain opposes stem cell research and other types of scientific study that involve the use of human embryos. John McCain believes Roe v. Wade is a flawed decision that must be overturned. John McCain believes the institution of marriage is a union between one man and one woman.

One last thought as I close this post…..Imagine, just imagine, what it would be like to have people in power that actually cared about our country? Imagine what it would feel like to have a sense that everything is going to get better, that things will change. A Barack Obama win will place seasoned politicians and intelligent leaders, many of whom we admire, into positions that introduce, shape, and drive policy and solutions. In the end, new leadership, various personnel changes, political appointments, and a restored sense of national pride, will be what delivers the much needed and desired “change.”

Vote Barack Obama, 2008
