Of the two choices, McCain seems less likely to grow the size of Government. That's the main reason.

Hated to miss all the action, but somebody called and told me I better get some gas while I can. Lots of places here have run out, but I got some off the beaten path.....$3.99

I support McCain's stance on more drilling, by the way.

I should do some drilling.

He isn't Obama, or HillBillary, or AlGore.

He isn't an ideal candidate, either. But maybe he can restore some of the damage done by W.

I support more drilling, I guess we can say that is McCain's stance however late he came to that conclusion.

Let's just not squeeze US business with a crazy carbon cap and trade or offset programs which both candidates appear to be for. Nothing like forcing more jobs overseas through unintended consequences.

McCain is a fine man, but one I would not vote for President.

I support McCain because he has more foreign policy experience than Obama.

I get the impression a lot of Obama supporters think if Obama gets elected, he'll come in and wave his magic wand over the middle east and the war will end and the troops will all come home. It is my hope that either candidate, if elected, will do whatever it takes to get things ready to turn the country back over to the Iraqi government so we WILL get the hell out of there. And then, I predict the Taliban will rise up and take the place over and undo all we did to install a democracy over there.

Yeah, I'm pessimistic either way.

Oh...the other reason I support McCain is he has a HOT running mate and she rides a Harley.

Thanks LUKE. Honestly, if Obama does get elected, it won't be the end of the world. If he becomes our president, I wish him well. Just don't make my tax burden any bigger than it already is. I've got all I can handle now.

Wow!...You said it!...I've always thought this "war" was a clusterf*ck for that EXACT reason.

What does it say about the people of Iraq and their "love" and eager embracing of Democracy, if they can't suck it up and defend their new "freedom" against the first foe that comes down the pike?

And Democracies that Live and thrive...are not installed, they are born out of a desire to be free. They are bled for....The people of Iraq have a long way to go before they even come close to grasping this concept and I for one am not behind the thought of one more brave American soldier dying in this failed experiment.

The Iraqis should raising their own army...How bad do THEY WANT to remain a democracy?

You GD right about that, BIGV. I don't think the Iraqis have the heart for it. Americans do, and that's why we have had so many of our young people stand up and volunteer for the mission. That is why I am so pessimistic about the eventual turnover to the Iraqis not lasting too long. Those people have always lived that way and they always will. When we are out of there and it goes back to Taliban rule, all the American lives lost will have been for naught, except for their selfless sacrifice. That will always mean something to the families they left behind.

Who's gonna drive this thing? Reminds me of one of Reddog's tails.

The Taliban was in Afganistan, I know, but I don't think they have a presence in Iraq.

I support him for his experience and foreign policy, pro-drilling, less TAXES,
pro gun ownership, and of the two choices, this is a no-brainer.
I am no big fan of McCain, but he can do a better job in every catagory.
He also does not attend the 'Reverend Wrights' whateveritis and subscribe to his racist beliefs.

The reason I would support McCain (btw I'm actually supporting the Libertarian candidate Bob Barr) is that I think with the likelyhood of a Democrat controlled Congress coupled with a Democrat President that they would behave much the same as the Republicans (Pigs at the trough) did, and I certainly don't see Obama being able to stand up to his own party, should they go that route. Also, in recent years "to much" power as gone to the President, and Congress needs to re-assert itself, and restrore a true balance of power between the two branches of government, and that's not going to happen unless one party controls the Congress and the other controls the White House. McCain, unlike Bush, would certainly be a President that has experience in working in a bi-partisan matter, and that could be very good thing as it could keep both sides from going off the "deep end". One thing people need to remember, is simply because you hate Bush, you shouldn't go blindly to the other extreme. And I do think for a lot of people, that's really motivating their support of Obama. Obama certainly knows how "to talk the talk", but I think it won't take very long into his Presidency before people realize he "can't walk the walk". And if that's the case, he'll end up being a Jimmy Carter. Remember Jimmy got elected primarily because he was so different than Nixon, and people thought that was what America needed. Turned out people were wrong.

Are you kidding me? Bush increased the size of government more than anyone before him and McCain is Bush lite ie 90+% voting with Bush. McCain is going to keep the war going which has been the biggest reason that government increased in size. We have no way anybody knows of to pay the already huge war and tax breaks for the rich debt and McCain will make it worse. Show me something other than'drill, drill, drill' which will make a huge ( we need huge because of the debt and boomers retiring) difference instead of the right wing continuing to increase spending, increase debt, continue war while giving tax breaks to the uber-rich and calling the dems the 'tax and spend' party?
All smears (campaign, not alloak41) and sloganeering with no actual facts to back your theory of smaller government up.

positive effects from more drilling will not affect the economy until 2030. The dems position on drilling is only different in the safeguards to the environment they want in place.

How? Because he says he is a maverick? Voting the same as Bush %90+ of the time? Sounds more like you just hate dems (which is ok-i just question your logic.)
