Beware of Pro Life folks with their finger on the trigger

Top 10 ‘or so’ reasons why I won’t vote for McCain/Palin (for real - no blogger fodder/propaganda)

1. Their position on negotiating with our enemies is scary.
As a student of The Art Of War the Republicans’ or rather the McCain/Palin approach is madness. Their infatuation with aggression and dismissal of diplomacy and reason is a cause of great concern. If it weren’t for the actions of President Bush I would say I don’t believe it. This is the behavior of children in the playground not multi-millionaire legislators. But alas it appears that even trust fund kids of oil barons can act as ignorant as a fake thug from East New York.

The truth is as Master Tzu teaches diplomacy works and aggression must be your last course of action. It does not make you weak. In fact it makes you strong.

2. Fannie and Freddie
It takes a special kind of stupid to let two companies holding $50 trillion (with a ‘t’) in loans to almost go under. And it happened under the Republican economic watch. McC/Palin’s relative silence lead one to believe they are clueless on the matter. Their insistence on continuing this expensive war is bad news.
Ideology aside, this war is an economic Titanic. News flash people – the cost of crude oil didn’t pop because Britney and Kevin broke up.

3. Choose Life, but not healthcare
The Republican platform is undoubtedly pro-life but as I understand it universal health care is a no-no. Apparently, they like the health care system as is. As an entrepreneur with 2 kids this is unacceptable. The business model of ‘pay or die’ is not only a burden for families like me but I believe it is a metaphysical crime.

McCain has no problem taking our tax dollars to wage war (which I concede is a necessary evil for any nation – although more folly than wisdom in this case). When asked to use those tax dollars to save out life he (they) won’t even consider it. Absurd. I feel like those AARP commercials, whoever is our next president must address our health care system.

And oh yeah – they say choose life are pro death penalty and pro guns. Explain to me how that fits together. Me myself I am pro life and pro choice. Women should have a choice and I hope they choose life. No one in this debate is pro-abortion or anti-life.

This is longer than I thought. The other 7 will be later.
