The 2008 Presidential election is heading for its final stretch. Within days both parties will have their conventions and officially nominate their now presumptive nominees. In spite of our diversity in interests, views, philosophy and many other issues that divide us, we in the United States of America are one family.
The Republicans will deliver John Sidney McCain III, a well known politician and war veteran with a military family history. He is no stranger to our nation. His life is an open book for all of us to see, there is only one John McCain running for president. You make like him or you may not but undeniably we know who he is and what he stands for. He has a transparent agenda that he promotes for the betterment of our country and all of its citizens. His father John S. McCain Jr. was a four star Admiral in the U.S. Navy. Also an Admiral in the U.S. navy was his grandfather John S. McCain Sr. I find that in spite of disagreement with some of his views and party affiliation, he is someone that could be entrusted with the responsibility of being our Commander in Chief. His heritage shows a dedication and loyalty to our nation that would be hard to surpass. In other words there is no reason why anyone should feel uncomfortable as to inviting John McCain into their house and entrusting him with the safety and best interest of our family.
The Democratic Party after much controversy and bickering within their party will choose Barack Hussein Obama. For the sake of fairness we can give him credit for personal achievement. We could also not question him as being a good person and a good father. Such credentials would match that of millions of other men and women in our country who are not qualified to be our President and Commander in Chief. Unlike John McCain there is no transparency in Barack Obama. In his original form we find someone who is by far not experienced or qualified to be our President. In the past few months we have seen controversy after controversy showing an Obama Liberals do not want us to know. We also see a politician continuously trying to redefine and reverse position after position to satisfy public image. As he redefines his public image we are still looking at someone we don’t really know. He has spoken of adapting policies that are radical and not clearly defined. To this day with all of the media publicity, money spent in advertising and vague speeches Barack Obama is someone we do not know. He is still a stranger.
On November 4th millions of us will make the decision of electing our next President. This could very well be the most important decision of the 21st century base on changes that Obama and his backers have proposed. I have long decided who my vote will go to. It could also be seen as who I will not vote for, based on qualifications and history.
Is it wise to invite a stranger in our house and entrust him with the safety and future of our family?
Many in elections day will take that risk but I will not.
Vote Wisely in 2008
