I voted today.
Following are twenty reasons that I voted for John Sidney McCain:
1. I believe he is more apt to appoint conservative judges to the Supreme Court–judges who will uphold the constitution and who will not deign to legislate from the bench.
2. He plainly states that life begins at conception, a true believer in the sanctity of life. Unlike Barack Obama who voted against medical care for “botched abortion babies,” John McCain is a protector of both the born and the unborn.
3. He has a beautiful wife who loves America and who has never indicated she is ashamed of our country.
4. I believe my children and grandchildren are more likely to experience America as I know it with John McCain as President. With all its imperfections, shortcomings and blemishes, the United States of America yet remains the greatest country in the world.
5. He has proven his love, loyalty, and allegiance to our country.
6. I much prefer to have him as Commander-in-chief than to have Barack Hussein Obama in that position. Sixty-eight percent of the military will choose Senator McCain–this includes both retired and active personnel.
7. Neither in his history, nor in his current sphere of influence is John McCain seen to be surrounded by friends, advisers, mentors, and ministers who are known radicals and terrorists.
8. John McCain kept his word when he said he would limit his campaign spending to public financing. Barack Obama, after having saying he would do the same, reversed himself and opted out of public financing, now having spent more on his campaign than has been spent on any other in history–more than 600 million. (Strange isn’t it–given Obama’s penchant for taking from those who have more and giving to those who have less. For the poor there could have been multiplied millions had he kept his word concerning public campaign financing.)
9. John McCain did not sit for 20 years in a church in which the minister was blatantly racist, and, who, in the pulpit cursed America.
10. Two years ago John McCain issued a non-heeded warning that our economy was headed for disaster, especially pointing to problems with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He was point-on correct.
11. John McCain was right about the potential success of The Surge. We are winning the war in Iraq.
12. John McCain does not hold Socialist or Marxist views. He does not plan to “spread the wealth around.” He will not take money from my sons ( who have worked hard and done well) and give it to others.
13. John McCain understands that during such economic stressful times as we have now, taxes should not be raised. They should be lowered for everyone.
14. Over the years, John McCain has been seen as authentic, consistent and honest.
15. John McCain has a wide record of accomplishment. Barack Obama has almost none.
16. I am pleased with Sarah Palin, his choice for vice-president. She has an impressive executive resume. Among other positions she has filled that of mayor and of governor–one of America’s most popular governors. She effected positive change in Alaska. She is a Christian and cherishes her Down’s Syndrome baby. She’s courageous and stands well under pressure.
17. John McCain willingly furnished an authentic, uncontested, birth certificate to prove he is American born.
18. He understands the world and its leaders.
19. John McCain is not linked with shadowy suggestion of voter fraud–as in ACORN.
20. John McCain did not smirk at the thought of Joe the Plumber, nor did he cut-off TV stations that asked him or Sarah Palin hard questions.
