I'll start it off..Rules/Info:
Please keep this topic clean. Any bashing of a user because of their views will result in a warning and if necessary a temporary ban.
We can have a good discussion and a debate of our own on who we think will make the best candidate for the next 4 years.
Now that all that is out of the way. Everyone interested post your opinions on either McCain or Obama and why (if you have made up your mind yet) you support that candidate. We will keep this going until November and we can post our opinions about each of the parties conventions later this year.
Im actually on the fence this time after having been entirely on one side the last eight years. Now that doesn't mean what most people mean nowadays. That Bush made them ashamed of their party. I actually like some views on both sides. While I absolutely hate one in particular.
If Obama wins, and he does the "popular" thing and not necessarily the RIGHT thing, of just making the American people happy by bringing the troops home. He better be ready to accept the consequences of Iraq being overthrown by al-Qaeda and the world gaining yet another unneeded terrorist state. Now, Im not going to defend McCain to much because he has said some things that shouldn't have been said if only for PR reasons.. I will admit that I voted for Bush both times and I am proud of my decision to do so.
We do not need to go into the tired story of we shouldn't of gone to Iraq in the first place, for one because we cannot change it now and for another hindsight plays a keyrole in this situation. With the information they had "at the time" they had every right to go in. If there is a plus to invading Iraq it is that we have one less dicator in the world and the people of Iraq have a shining future now because of it. Their human rights are not being stomped on any longer. They have freedom now.
The military issue is mainly the only thing that keeps me leaning more on the republican side then on the democrat side because I believe they are shortsighted. They have yet to say anything about what they will do after they leave Iraq. Its not stable enough to be on its own yet. Yes they are making extreme progress on that front but they are also being plagued with corruption in some of the police forces.
Anyway, those are my initial views..
