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
2. Immigration
3. Double standards for politicans, political reform
4. Education
5. Affirmative action
6. Economy and loss of jobs abroad

No particular order and I'm sure I'll think of something later.
