5 Days

Just so you know, I am not at all happy with the straw man campaign that’s being run by the opposition party. Yeah, its fun to think of George W. Bush as a straw man and its always fun to knock a straw man down but its still just a straw man and not the actual candidate that has enough issues on his own that a straw man shouldn’t be required.

But here’s the problem, if you personally attack Sen. McCain you have no place to say he’s the one slinging the mud. No one is going to mind you slinging a little mud on a lame duck president whose approval rating is in the gutter.

I’d love to find a righteous man that I could support but he isn’t out there this year.

8 days

In eight days we elect the next president of the United States. I haven’t said much about this because I’m less than enthused about my choices. There is really no one running, not even in the various third parties, that I feel I can support. For the first time in ages I’m truly undecided…. or at least I was.

I’ve made my choice but even now it wouldn’t take much to sway it in the next eight days. Basically I’ve been torn between wanting to keep congress and the administration out of the control of one party and voting for someone who once said that they would prefer a clean government to freedom of speech. There’s more than that one comment that has me upset with him but I think that most succinctly explains where I’m coming from.

As of now my plan is to be the last person voting in my precinct in eight days. I’m going to take as long as I possibly can to completely commit.
