How is it that John McCain and Sarah Palin can make so many mistakes and still be ahead?
How is it that people can believe their lies?
How, when they're telling what they believe is the truth, can people agree with them?
This is my biggest issue. I would never vote for any candidate that threatened my ability to choose what I do with my body. I would never vote for anyone who seems so determined to take my right to abortion away. I don't believe that abortion is right in every circumstance, but I also don't believe that everyone who gets pregnant should have children, and I don't believe that life and death is the only line to be drawn there. There's more to life than just being alive. (For both mother and fetus/baby.) Furthermore, and more importantly, I would never vote for someone who's going to try to take my birth control away. I'll fight tooth and nail for this little packet of pills. On top of that, what exactly do they propose to do about all the unplanned pregnancies that are sure to crop up? Not everyone can afford to raise 5 children, or even 1 for that matter. Teenagers certainly don't need to be caring for babies, regardless of the example that Governor Palin's own family has set.
I would never vote for anyone who knows less about the economy than I do. (Which, believe me, isn't much.) How can John McCain say that the state of our economy is healthy when people are losing their homes, their jobs, their everything? What does he think is happening when the dollar is worth less every day? What rock has he been under?
I would never vote for anyone who has an "if you're not with us, you're against us" mentality. Since when has the Prime Minister of Spain been a terrorist supporter? McCain so clearly wants us to be isolated from every other country in the world. How could that be good in any way? How could we elect someone who is leaving the option of war with Russia open? Who is biting at the bit to go to war with Iran (thus going to war with China, Russia and a large portion of the rest of the world)? How can we elect someone who doesn't even want to get us out of the war that we're already in?
How can people not see what a scary place we're in right now? How can they not know that electing McCain and Palin would only make it scarier? And trust me, it would be much, much scarier.
Register. Vote. And think before you do it.
