The ironic part is that McCain used Palin to deliver his "you can't trust Obama" message, yet SHE was the one found guilty of "violating the public trust"
(by a BIPARTISAN committee)
She is a bad person, who cannot be trusted to be President of the United States of America. And McCain exercised poor judgement for not checking up on her first.
I am ANOTHER of MANY registered Republicans who will be switching parties because the GOP have let me and the country down so badly, and voting for Obama/Biden because they are so far superior to Ailin/McCain.

Obama promises a tax cut for 95% of Americans. He can't possibly deliver that with all of his spending plans. Plus, it just isn't in his nature. He is a socialist (See Chicago chapter of the DSA...Democratic Socialists of America).
The fact of the matter is that the top 50% of tax payers pay 97% of the total taxes. The top 1% pay 40%. How do you only raise takes on the wealthy when they pay most of the taxes? It doesn't work that way, but Obama is getting away with his BS because of a complicit media. Obama favors a massive redistribution of wealth.
Class warfare is what the liberals use to get lower income people to keep voting for them. Another fact, the poor and certain minority groups have been voting in large blocks for liberals over the last 60 years or so. Why hasn't the situation improved for this group during 6 decades of reliable voting? Well, it is because they need to keep you poor and needing the government. If you don't need them then you won't need to vote for them. This is why they are called poverty pimps. Their power is due to you needing them. If you don't need the government you will be less likely to vote for them. Period.
Liberals like to talk about big corporations being bad, etc. I don't know about you, but I never got a job from a poor person. Before starting my own company, I always seemed to get jobs from successful companies and individuals. Why does it make sense to tear down successful companies and individuals when that is who provides jobs? Go back and look at what Jimmy Carter (worst President in the history of the US) and you will see what an uber Liberal...socialist...President and Congress will deliver. Double digit unemployement and double digit inflation.
Vote however you want, but at least educate yourself a little bit about what exactly your chosen candidate stands for. Not just the rhetoric. The associations, alliances, and record. Nobody is squeeky clean in politics but you will find trends that will point you in the right direction.
God bless the USA! (We are not a downright mean country as one candidates wife has said...we are the most generous country that has ever existed)

No but all those that vote for Obama are voting for the deadly duo Chavez and Putin. Where do you think all the money is coming from??Obama's Father was a hard line socialist and lets face it Rev Wright never started a service with the national anthem. If the ballot stuffing of Acorn does not work the liberals in congress will ignore the real vote and put Obama in anyhow.

If you watch the interview on YouTube where Palin admits she doesn't have a clue what the VP does, she also says she plans to find out so that she can use the office to better the situation of the people of Alaska. Alaska already gets more federal money per capita than any other state.

Certainly not. Mainly, because I am not voting for SARAH Palin. I am voting for John McCain. The fact is, Sarah Palin is his vp choice. Americans do not "vote" for their vp....they vote for president, and the president CHOOSES the vp.

John McCain has a strong record of working across the aisle to reform how business is done in Washington. Throughout his career of public service, John McCain has worked across party aisles with Republicans and Democrats alike to reform our campaign finance system, confirm qualified judges like Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Sam Alito, and enhance our homeland security. He spoke out against his own party's out-of-control spending, against the Administration to change a failing strategy in Iraq, and against an energy bill that was full of giveaways to Big Oil companies.
To keep our nation prosperous, strong and growing we have to rethink, reform and reinvent: the way we educate our children; train our workers; deliver health care services; support retirees; fuel our transportation network; stimulate research and development; and harness new technologies.
Under a McCain presidency the United States will experience robust economic growth, and Americans will again have confidence in their economic future. A reduction in the corporate tax rate from the second highest in the world to one on par with our trading partners; the low rate on capital gains; allowing business to deduct in a single year investments in equipment and technology, while eliminating tax loopholes and ending corporate welfare, will spur innovation and productivity, and encourage companies to keep their operations and jobs in the United States. Doubling the size of the child exemption will put more disposable income in the hands of taxpayers, further stimulating growth.
Under a McCain presidency the United States will be well on the way to independence from foreign sources of oil; progress that will not only begin to alleviate the environmental threat posed from climate change, but will greatly improve our security as well. John McCain has proposed a comprehensive energy plan - the Lexington Project - that will lower the price of gas while utilizing every energy source to move us toward energy independence. He believes we need to develop advanced alternative energy sources while developing existing energy sources by drilling offshore, expanding nuclear power and encouraging clean coal technologies.
Under a McCain presidency health care will become more accessible to more Americans than at any other time in history. Reforms of the insurance market; putting the choice of health care into the hands of American families rather than exclusively with the government or employers; walk in clinics as alternatives to emergency room care; paying for outcome in the treatment of disease rather than individual procedures; and competition in the prescription drug market will wring out the runaway inflation once endemic in our health care system.
Finally to secure the peace for future generations, John McCain will end the war in Iraq with victory and bring our troops home with honor. John McCain hates war. And he knows very personally how terrible its costs are. But he knows, too, that the course of immediate withdrawal in Iraq could draw us into a wider war with even greater sacrifices; put peace further out of reach, and Americans back in harm's way. John McCain will also win the war in Afghanistan by increasing the size of forces there and adopting a true counterinsurgency strategy, much like the one that has been successful in Iraq that John McCain advocated. He will continue to hunt down al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.
John McCain has the strength to keep America safe and the courage to secure the peace.
There are many public causes where service can make our country a stronger, better one than we inherited. Wherever there is a hungry child, a great cause exists to serve. Where there is an illiterate adult, a great cause exists to serve. Wherever there are people who are denied the basic rights of Man, a great cause exists to serve. Wherever there is suffering, a great cause exists to serve. John McCain has spent his life serving our country and will continue to work with anyone who sincerely wants to get this country moving again. He will listen to any idea that is offered in good faith and intended to help solve our problems, not make them worse. He will seek the counsel of members of Congress from both parties in forming government policy before asking them to support it.
From the day he is sworn into office until the last hour of his presidency, John McCain will work with anyone, of either party, to make this country safe, prosperous and proud.
