Lets just say that there are no political parties for this discussion. So there is no, "I'm voting for McCain because I am a Republican" stuff. Taking into account both leaders strengths, weaknesses and policies, who would you truthfully vote for? i personally would vote for McCain, as Barrack would bring higher taxes. However I am iffy on whether McCain would do anything in office and I sure wouldn't want to vote for another George Bush. So what does the Mylot community think? I will tally votes and we will see who MyLot wants for the next president of the United States of America.

I honestly hate the thought of either one being elected. But if I have to say I'd pick McCain because Obama was nominated for all the wrong reasons.

Yah, but I still believe that Obama was the better choice over Hilary. I don't really know why though, thats just my gut feeling.

"I don't but it had to be one or the other." Actually, no it didn't; there were 8 other Democrats running if I'm not mistaken about the exact total. Annie

Obama talked about change this and change that but as we move forward he is going backwards on a lot of positions. he said end the war in Iraq but then back peddled on that. Plus he still talks about more troops in Afghanistan. He wants all these new programs that can only happen by raising taxes. he basically wants Americans to cut down on what we do. Taxing big oil isn't the right thing to do because you know we won't get that savings, the government will make more and big business will just find a new way to make up the losses at our expense. I don't even want to start on funding health care for everyone, especially all the illegal immigrants. Plus, as if I need more, Obama has such a clouded background with all the people he has been involved with it scares me. I am not saying McCain is great, but with a democratic congress and a republican president maybe they will balance each other out a little. Everything controlled by one party really scares me, especially with all the people involved.

I have to say if there were only ONE reason for me not to vote for McCain, checks and balances from a possibly more Democratic Congress aside, it would be because of the Supreme Court appointments he stands to have the opportunity to make. With six, if I recall correctly, over the age of 70, the next President's impact on the Court will be the largest in our history perhaps and I sure don't like McCain's idea of more Justices like Scalia, Thomas, Roberts and Alito.

Hmm.. Well my great=grandma always said if something sounds too good to be true it probably is. And Obama sounds to good to be true. (Or he did a month or so ago when I quit following the mess) I really dont think we know anything about what these two men will do in office so I am going with my gut here. Obama just doesnt set right with me so I guess it will be Mccain. Lesser of two evils and the like.
