Re: U.S Presidential Race
My vote was reserved for Ron Paul, no body supported him in GOP.
Obama Biden... No, they have goodies for every one, obviously nothing will be delivered, just empty talk.
McCain and Sara, I am not sure,
MacCain's stance with Bush reminds me nothing but bad things, if he shows any change then his past love for Bush Co.will haunt me. only possible relief is that there would be no five people gangs as Bush administration has. So my vote is still reserved.
Sinister ji,what is wrong with Sara? She is a pretty strong person!
YEA DR. Paul was my candidate as well...it's a shame he just fell apart because he didnt get a nod from the rest of the stupid GOP electorate.
Obama has pluses and downs, I admit:
-He talks nice...inspirational to the point of puking
-Easy on the eyes
-seems genuine, even if hes empty talking and lieing. (figure that out yourself)
-foreign policy is great
-Education policy is alot better than the GOP
-his idea to restore civil liberties is admirable (retract the patriot act)
-Stance on the Minimum Wage
-Post-secondary education...tuition fees
-He wants to end the war in Iraq
-He definately knows how to raise money alot better than McCain...grassroots campaigner...hes a better politician...which counts for something.
-Hes from a mixed race family ... unity forever
-The world loves him
-His economic policy is a little pathetic
hes in favour of those crazy stimulous packages
-talks negatively about bailing out large lenders/banks (worrying...because stuff like that is mandatory...although it may just be rhetoric)
-He might be too comfortable with crazy environmentalists
-Seems Opposed to free trade and wants to revisit NAFTA agreements. (which may be impossible according to international law)
where does he tie McCain?
energy...both candidates dont have clue where to go next...although i still lean towards obama or the T. Boone Pickens idea of alternatives stepping in.
drilling is not greatest solution like the GOP is advocating nor is this crazy plan for the government to directly invest money into renewables (like obama)...let the market figure this out while the government should reward energy effecient businesses and consumers with tax rebates... is what i say.
Why i wont vote for McCain?
-slap the GOP on the wrist...He is pro iraq war
-He is acting like a Neo-con (even if he isn't...that ****ess me off)
-McCain is just too old (call it ageism/discrimination..whatever...i dont care)..he is just too old.
-He belongs to a political dynasty..which is a no no for me
-He is not an intellectual.
-McCain does not know how to use a computer...and a person who doesnt know how to operate a computer in the 21st century is not fit to lead one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world.
YouTube - Mac vs PC: McOld Prefers his abacus
-Too close to Bush in his tax policies
-Too close to Bush in Foreign Policy
My issue with Sarah Palin?
shes a dumb pageant queen..nuff said
Sarah Palin is not my cup of tea...she is not qualified for law making or government oversight...she manages a state whose population is less than that of detroit...in which the states primary concern is setting up a dog-sledding competitions and regulating/enforcing fishing laws...she has a degree in journalism! (not that i'm saying education displays smartness...eg bush is educated...BUT COME ON!...JOURNALISM?)
she is not an intellectual. and that makes two of the same...not good
and why did McCain chose to solidify ALASKA? when it could have been Minnesota or a state that matters?
its like shooting yourself in the foot!
but then again what do I know.
