McCain or Obama?

Republican or Democrat?
Conservative or Liberal?
Truthfully, I don’t follow politics because every time I read an article or watch a news feature I end up pacing the house in a rant. So much stupidity and self-interest in one city!
I am not registered as either a Republican or a Democrat since I choose a candidate by their beliefs and platform rather than a generalization of a Party. Sometimes I’m not sure that even the Party members know exactly what they stand for. The lines seem to blur sometimes.
And since I believe the government should change with the times rather than be stuck in some distant past, I guess I would qualify as a Liberal. I mean, when Ward sent the Beaver to his room, did he go there to call Lumpy on his cel phone or surf the ‘net or boot up GTA4 on his XBox? No, back in that day, he was sent there to think over his behavior. We can’t be stuck back in the ’50s just because they’re painted so beautifully on television; we have to change with the technology and the society we’re living in.
So with my background of ignorance explained, I will tell you my impression. It will be a sad day for America if McCain is elected. From the little I’ve read or heard, here’s my three top reasons why McCain is the wrong choice.
1. He wants to stay in Iraq until we win the war. Well, you may as well nuke the hell out of them right now because there’s no way you’re going to harness that team and get them to pull in the same direction.
2. He wants to build more nuclear reactors. Oh, sure, let’s poison our planet from the inside with nuclear waste because we’re not ruining it fast enough on the surface.
3. I’d hate to see the demand for wire coat hangers rise.
