Here's why I'm voting for Barack Obama (and you should, too)|
I agree with your argument. I will be voting Obama/Biden. I had reservations about Biden, but I have read extensively about him since he was nominated to be VP, and I found that much of what I thought I knew was wrong. It was misinformation that had been cleverly used by the Republicans against him starting years ago, and seems to have been aimed at him as a Senator.
There is no perfect candidate, but the Republicans have created a mess that may financially destroy this country. Everything that they and their propaganda machines (ala Fox News and others) say about Obama is more applicable to McCain-Palin. It is true that "the GOP has given us the first-ever Presidential/Vice Presidential slate with one member adjudicated guilty of a severe ethics violation and the other formally accused of a severe ethics/law violation." This is appalling.
I happen to also be a unhappy capitalist, and I am very upset that Fidel Bush ;) wants nationalize our banking system. Shall we give the foxes a key to our hen house?
Everything that Obama and Biden say about the middle class is true. By voting for them, I am voting for a team of people who I am hoping and praying will lead this country back to prospertity.
