Let’s see where I start. McCain’s unwillingness to shake Barrack Obama’s hand…or Sarah Palin showing up to numerous function sponsored by a political party that wants Alaska to be a separate country! I’ll start with McCain who has a great plan to buy all of America’s bad mortgages. Only thing he says he’s not going to raise taxes! Ok….who does the senator think he’s fooling? The money has to come from somewhere. Knowing that Republicans will cut any program for there already outrages Defense budget I wonder what Senator McCain plans to cut to fund his proposed program. Barrack Obama has made it clear before the election that he will raise taxes on those who make more than $250,000, and although people who fall in that category ,might not like it, they should respect the fact that Barrack has been up front about his plans. He could say “Read my lips no new taxes”, but we all know the end results to that. I actually like McCain’s plan but let’s be realistic about where the money is going to come from.
Sarah Palin is trying to take the Bill Clinton route into America’s heart by appearing on SNL. She wants to give a makeover to the traditional view of Republicans, maybe that’s because she’s an AIP at heart. It might not be a bad idea, but I can’t see McCain’s camp endorsing this move. And then there’s the confirmed that “Sarah Palin and her husband Todd were members in of Alaska’s Independence Party in 1994, even attending the 1994 statewide convention in Wasilla”, Lynette Clark, the chairman of the AIP, told ABC News. So much for patriotism! Since the 1970s the AIP has been pushing for a legal vote for Alaskans to decide whether or not Alaska can secede from the United States…so much for Patriotism! For Palin to always attack Obama about who he associated with, i.e. Jeremiah Wright, and Bill Ayers, you would think her past was crystal clear. Palin, herself was involved with the AIP, and then you have McCain linked to a man who sells shirts celebrating Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. Plus we all know he opposed MLK Day, to the point that the governor of his state turned down an invitation to host the super bowl which would have brought in millions of dollars. Wow they must have really been opposed to this holiday. These things can not only be attributed to McCain and Palin’s friends but to the actual Senator and Governor. I wonder who’s running the smear campaign for the Democrats anyway…because I never hear these issues addressed in mass media!
Under George Bush’s leadership the national debt has almost doubled…it’s safe to say his presidency was a failure. So do Republicans actually believe McCain is that much different? Doubling a 5 trillion dollar debt takes effort and not the kind of effort we need. Under Bill Clinton the country had some surplus. Do any of these issues matter to Conservatives…I guess will see in November.
