Drew has something to say...

Not that my .02 cents really matter at this point or that anyone would really care what I have to say over the matter of the election. I have heard both parties speeches and agree with many of policies and proposals which all seem very smart, intelligent and enlightening. However despite all of the promises and the he said she said b.s. I would like to just say that one president may boost the economy and make my 401k go up a few bucks which in and of itself would be nice. I however would also forfeit my entire savings and retirement just to know that thousands of unborn babies lives would not be lost to abortion. I think that there has been so much focus put onto the economy that every other part of the presidential role has been lost. I think that it is follie to think that a man that has never spent a day in any type of army, navy, military or air force can successfully be commander and chief over this country. It is also rather unfortunate to believe that one who has been in the office of a senator for less time than what it takes to become a doctor, lawyer, dentist, RN, or even teachers go through a time longer than six months before they can become a principal. Or on a much lesser note even get their own classroom full of kids to teach without going through as a teachers aid first or substituting for a substantial amount of time usually much longer than six months. Also, as a firm believer of the bible and the many principles which it brings forth, I follow the bibles teachings in marriage of a man and a woman and that God is perfect and that he does not make mistakes when creating his children. As I go to the polls tomorrow to cast my vote for John McCain I still struggle to think about how many people stand undecided but of course if one is only looking at the economic part of the presidential role then yes I guess it would be a tough choice between the two candidates. Maybe if more people did a large amount of personal research on the presidents instead of believing what the media tells them the undecided voter numbers would be much fewer and this race would be much closer or perhaps even swaying in favor of Senator McCain. I know my vote is not the most popular and that Warren Buffet, Oprah, and Ellen would be very upset with me but that's why this country is great!!! Even if you don't vote McCain be sure to do your homework and vote for whom you deem to be the most qualified.

Between you and Mark, I think you won the "debate"! We need a doer, not a dreamer! But I guess we're stuck with the "dreamer"!

Thanks for sharing Drew.

It's the same as marrying for money!

I totally agree. Although I think abortion is an issue that never will be resolved and I don't think that someone's vote should be solely based on a Supreme Court Decision from the 70's, you hit some very very good points. I just wish you had posted this sooner. I would have helped spread the word.
