Can I vote for this guy?

I'm with James Dobson. I don't know how I can vote for John McCain. I understand the temper. The guy was a Navy fighter pilot. The Navy doesn't exactly turn out tea party society mavens. If The Huffington Post is accurate, though, McCain has directed unbelievably profane language, not only at his political opponents, but also at his wife.

I said it before, and I'll say it again. Since when did the Democratic Party become the family-that-stays-together party. I don't agree with Barack Obama's positions. I agree even less with Hillary's. Why is it, then, that I get a sense that they're both morally superior to candidate McCain?

I'm stunned that he's the GOP's guy. Disappointing in a big way! I suspect the multitudes will prodded to line up and vote the "lesser of 2 evils again." Not me, not again.

Yeah, the thing is, Dave, I don't know which is the lesser of two evils this time around. It used to be easy to figure that part out. Now I'm not so sure. At least Obama and Hillary are both married to their first spouses. And somehow I can't imagine Obama treating Michelle that way. I hate his policies. Man, who can we write in?

I agree McCain is not a good choice....but he is the best available. Remember this is not just about the presidency....it is about judges. If Obama or Hillary wins they will be appointing liberal judges left and right...including the Supreme Court if any leave. With McCain we will have a fighting chance at conservative judges.

Also, Hillary and Obama want to leave Iraq. If that happens the terrorists will find a new battleground. I hope it isn't the U.S. McCain will stay in Iraq until the job is done. I also think McCain is for privitizing Social Secruity at least somewhat. That would be a GREAT move. Do you realize how wealthy everyone would be if instead of giving our money to the government for Social Security we had been investing 4%-5% in IRA's or 401k's? Everyone would be retiring at 59 1/2 as a millionaire or multi-millionaire. For those who think Social Security is a good program....why don't the politicians have it? They have a different plan.....do all of these people that support Social Security realize that?

Sorry for the ramble...sometimes I just shake my head at the ignorance of the American people.

I must be honest when I say that my political knowledge of the candidates is scarce at this time. But to know that a man that retaliates at his wife in that fashion and makes excuses for it doesn't leave me with the peace of mind to think that he can handle relations with other countries in a civilized manor. Between that and Hilary's sad "under fire in Bosnia" claims I find it hard to believe either has much integrity... and I really am oblivious to Obama because I just don't think he'll get the parties nomination.

I think the only thing we can do is spread the word to the American people that George Brown is the name that they should fill in on their ballots this November.

Who's with me?

I'm not a McCain fan either, but I simply cannot vote for Obama or the Hildebeeste (by the way, she curses her spouse too -- and she drops f-bombs at will).

Did you actually write "If the Huffington Post is accurate"?

I appreciate everyone's input and many thanks to Frank for posting this topic. If you will all take a few minutes and go here:

I believe this is where you will get a definite bearing as to where our country needs to be regarding government. The Imprimis (meaning"In the first place..") is published by Hillsdale College, and Hillsdale is the only only college in the entire United States that accepts absolutely zero government funding.
Not even government help for students...which causes many to raise an eybrow. But they do not want government dictating anything regarding what they are able to teach or those causes within which they may participate.
You can also search out many different archived topics and past Imprimis issues.
I believe all of you will find this publication to be a breath of fresh perspective 'air' regarding true conservatism, and a Christian view, as well as the original intent of our founding fathers, and a sensible journalistic approach to the world in which we live, as opposed to the constant liberal media bias with which we have become all too familiar.
Although I never attended Hillsdale College, I spent many a boyhood day on the campus of this, my hometown college and am proud that I am a part of the heritage of the leadership of this institution in Hillsdale county that still believes freedom rings true in the hearts of Americans who believe our freedom comes from God Himself.
Don't be fooled by the rhetoric of the Democratic candidates...it is pure socialistic rhetoric that has a definite agenda of planting bigger and more government to dictate the rights of citizens.
The Republican candidate may have marital outbreaks, and at times, a temper, but it is a temper born of passion for this country to be free, and freedom always births passion.
As to a write in vote, I'm sticking with Huckabee, and I know some will be writing in Ron Paul. Actually, either will be fine. The young voters of today, and I've talked with many, they only want change for change sake. They don't really grasp with understanding all the implications of what a democratic choice, at this time, would mean for the future of the USA. Those of us who are bridges in the generations, old enough to have seen history from a living perspective, we know what a democratic candidate would mean...an exchange of personal freedoms for governmental issuances of programs that are designed to 'help' me. I don't want the 'help' they offer.
I would close with a word of caution to those young voters, change for the sake of change is something you need to exercise with extreme caution, and nobody would know this better than my generation. My generation wrote the book on change and the outcome of those changes has been a serious laboratory of study for future generations and carries a gigantic signpost with it that screams, "Be careful! What you wish for may make you cry out, don't get fooled again!" It was never more clearly stated than in a song written by "The Who" in the early 70's...
"We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again."

May God protect our country,
Serving Christ,
Rod Bisher

Remember this: Obama and Hillary might have some policies that are disagreeable, but they can't do anything with those policies without majority approval within the senate and stuff. We need to think more about who can best run the country, not necessarily who we agree with the most or who is the most conservative.
