The One Reason I’m Still Undecided: Palin

with 4 comments

Just when I start thinking I’m deciding to vote for McCain, Palin says something like this:

Just say “Yes”. Please.

My simple definition of a terrorist: Anyone who attempts or threatens to cause death or bodily harm in order to promote their own ideology.

Ayers, check.
Abortion clinic bombers, check.

  1. st. Paul was a terrorist too!!!!! He dragged Christians out to kill them and he terrorized them. And look what God did with him. Oh my watch out for a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy.

  2. I would not have sat on a board with St. Paul before he repented, or written a blurb for his book cover.:)

    But really, I don’t care about Ayers. I personally wouldn’t have been associated with him, or an abortion clinic bomber, including sitting on a board. But neither do I think Obama is a bad person for doing it. We just have different lines that we won’t cross, that’s all.

    So I don’t really care about Ayers. I care about Palin.

  3. Okay, if for whatever reason you cannot vote for Obama, at least do yourself a favor and vote 3rd party. Actually, this would be great for the country in the long run, too – if the GOP sees how many people have jumped to a THIRD PARTY LOSING SHIP, JUST TO NOT VOTE FOR THIS WOMAN….we might see some party reform.
    Then again, that’s probably wishful thinking.
    And hell, what do I know? We voted Obama weeks ago.

  4. WaltzInExile, I have considered it, and I have posted in defense of the third party before.

    However, there isn’t really a third party candidate I like that much either. I don’t believe in not voting for a third party just because they won’t win (the “wasted vote” theory). However, I also don’t believe in voting for a third party candidate just to make a statement, when I don’t really want him to be president.

    For example, I think there is some Libertarian in me, but I think the Libertarian party is just too libertarian, and I wouldn’t want one to be president. If I voted for Barr, it would just be to stick it to the other two parties–which I don’t really feel is a good reason.

    Anyway, thanks for reading the commenting.

    And by the way, the main reason I’m against Obama is his tax policy (and no, I don’t buy the Republican “he’ll raise your taxes” line, I just don’t think it’s a good idea to raise taxes on anyone in a recession, or just as we are coming out of a recession). I don’t think Obama will be good for the economy, which is my #1 issue.
