All recent wars the US have been involved to relate to oil. The US consumes the biggest amount of oil in the world. The only two oil producers that befriend the US are Canada and Mexico, all the other countries are America's enemies: Russia, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, among other African countries.
If you want the US to keep away from wars, and stop spending money defending other countries and US oil providers, then you have to vote McCain. Why? Because McCain wants our country to become oil independent. That is, it wants the US to produce ALL the oil we need. That way, those countries stop being a threat, thus it will not be in their hands to paralyze our economy.
Also, McCain is serious about developing strong alternate energy sources. That is why Sarah Palin is necessary, she is an expert in oil production and energy. Remember Palin gave back more than 1000 dollars to each person living in Alaska because they exceeded oil sales and the benefits were given back to people. That's cool.
A second thing: Have you seen senators and congress men enjoy all luxury at their meetings, commissions and have you ever seen how government offices waste our money in paper, electricity, non efficient workers, well, McCain and Palin want to reduce all that wasting. It is a lot of money. Obama thinks it is all right to waste our money. He doesn't even think this is important. But look again at Palin's work in Alaska, the savings she made were worth a check of 500 dollars per Alaskan tax payer. So, in one year, they receive almost 1700 dollars back!!!! Just in savings from government wasting AND oil sales.
A third thing: Obama and Biden were forced to say in the debates if their programs would slow down due to the depression. They were forced to say, the delivery of their programs will slow down. What does that mean??? It means that they will not do what they have promised!!! Including tax rising!!
A fourth thing: Obama wants to beat "rich" people, you know what, normal people with small stores or small business are making 250K, taxing them means losing the jobs they provide, stopping selling the products other small companies are producing which will send them to bankruptcy and even more jobs will be lost. His tax policy will not benefit poor people, because poor people do not pay taxes!!! They get money for free!! But he will cause a lot of middle class people close their small companies, their small businesses, and good bye to the American dream. We'll all be employed by big companies that will pay us what they want.
Obama tax policy is misleading, and against America.
A fifth reason I am voting McCain: Because he is against corruption!! He warned the senate in 2005 about the corrupt activities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were carrying out, he told them they were giving indiscriminate loans and credits. BUT Senators including Obama were getting benefit from those companies that were growing so fast. He insisted warning the senate in 2006. He is against corruption. Sarah Palin is against corruption too. She sent six senators to jail because they were approving laws that allowed oil companies to spend very little money in the restoration of the ecological damage they cause. Those senators received benefits from those companies and passed the laws that would keep on giving benefits to the companies and themselves. She started a process against them and won it. Those senators are still in jail. Obama has benefited from companies -take a look at his campaign donors, even CNN is giving him money-, Biden has been 25-26 years living from the system and being part of that corruption. I do want to choose a president that will stop it, and McCain is that person.
I understand you want to get rid of Bush. BUT McCain is not Bush, just like you are not your sister, or your cousin, or your friend. You are you, you have your own good ideas, you have you own intentions independent of who your neighbor or your boyfriend or your mother and father are. The same goes for McCain, he is himself. He is not Bush. You are not the guy you seldom see at work!
McCain is also a good person, father of seven children, four adopted, three of his own. How many men avoid to take responsibility of their children or paying child support? This man accepted four children without hesitation!!
Also, this man knew he screwed up his first marriage, and accepted humbly his responsibility, divorced and since then provided abundantly to his ex-wife who supports him. He pays her medical bills, bought her a house, bought her a car, provides a high monthly pension. He also married a rich woman with a prenuptial agreement that prevents him from ever inheriting any of her possessions. How many men do that? He is definitely a good man, with strong morals, someone I can trust.
