1. The 2nd Amendment is about an individual’s right to own firearms.
2. Increase forces in Afghanistan.
3. Willing to violate Pakistan’s sovereignty to catch a suspected terrorist.
4. Supported the $700 billion financial rescue bill.
5. Keep taxes on dividends low. (McCain wants them lower, but even Obama does not want them as high as the highest income tax rate, a traditional Democratic view.)
6. Reward good teachers with higher pay.
7. Invest more money in wind, solar, and clean coal power.
8. Provide tax credits for the purchase of low emission vehicles.
9. Secure our borders and provide a path to citizenship to undocumented workers without a criminal record.
10. Georgia should be allowed in NATO.
I could've made the list a lot longer. The point here is NOT that it doesn't matter who you vote for. There would certainly be differences between an Obama presidency and a McCain presidency. But, the differences would not be as large as you are led to believe by the campaigns. Liberals would likely be surprised, and upset, at how conservative an Obama presidency would be; and, conservatives would likely be surprised, and upset, at how liberal a McCain presidency would be.
So, if your candidate loses tomorrow, you can take heart in the fact that our system of government favors moderation. And in another four years, you'll have another chance. If your candidate wins, brace yourself for some disappointments.
