There is one week left. Seven more days until we all have the opportunity to vote in the most important Presidential election of our lives thus far.
As Election Day nears, my sentiment is becoming stronger. I have been an Obama supporter since 2004. However at the start of the general election I was glad that McCain was the alternative. I have long been a fan of McCain’s independence.
Over the course of the general election campaign I have watched the slow, painful death of this principled independence. It has been replaced by desperation and opportunism. This is McCain’s last shot and he will stop at nothing to get into the White House. His low point: Sarah Palin – perhaps the least qualified candidate for Vice President in history.
Sarah Palin makes George Bush look like a Rhodes Scholar.
So as we enter the final seven days I ask you to take the time to truly consider:
1) Has your financial situation improved over the past eight years?
2) Are you as optimistic now as you were in 2000?
3) Do you believe that spending between $1 trillion on the war in Iraq was the best use of those resources? (Imagine what we could do with $1 trillion. How about the largest tax cut in history or free college education for all children or top notch health care for every American. Is a war in Iraq more important than these things to you?)
4) Do you believe that Sarah Palin is prepared for the responsibilities of President of the United States of America?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then perhaps you should vote for McCain. But if, like me, you answered no to all four – Obama, Obama, Obama, Obama.
