I glanced just briefly at his voting record for my list of priorities. I will have to look at it closer to see if it is enough for me to cast my vote for this ticket. Right now it's still a toss up.
Well, what's your alternative?
I have to see who McCain chooses. I don't consider either a powerful choice so I will be voting and hoping for the best based on both tickets record on the issues I see as important.
What are your primary issues? It's unusual to see someone choosing between Obama and McCain - they represent such fundamentally different choices.
Weren't you against the Iraq War?
Initially I was for the war based on the reasoning we were going to stop Bin Laden and further atacks. After I got over there and the story started changing my support for the powers that sent us and the war declined.
I was against the surge as I believe if war is declared we should go in 100%. None of this "civilized" war BS. If we had went in without the arogance from chaney, rumsfeld and the rest of the armchair commandos and laptop bombadiers a lot of lives would have been saved.
As far as my issues
1. A strong defense
3. Double standards for politicans, political reform
5. Affirmative action
6. Economy and loss of jobs abroad
No particular order and I'm sure I'll think of something later.
