Capitalism is a proven successful economic plan. Socialism has proven to fail. Every country that adopts capitalism thrives. It is concerning that people may want to throw out what works in the hopes of trying something new, but finding only something old in a shiny new wrapper.
If you are like me, and most Americans, you want change. Obama has banked on this desire. But what kind of change do we need? It is a sad commentary when many people are so eager for change that they do not care what kind of change. They do not even ask what kind of change Obama will bring! What if that is a change to communism, socialism, terrorism, Muslim sheria law... hey, that is change isn't it! But obviously, it is not GOOD change.
I want change, but for the better! Change back to a time when society stood on a strong foundation of family values, when America was the shining light of the world and not ashamed of it, a time when we were not afraid to speak the truth for fear of being politically incorrect. McCain has more in common with Ronald Reagan than he has with Bush. I believe that McCain-Palin will be a step in the RIGHT direction of change.
I do not want to live in a socialistic society that penalized the hardworking citizens in order to give more handouts to the slackers ("redistribution of wealth" as Obama calls it, which is socialist economics -- a system that was proven to fail by Marx, Lenin, Stalin...). McCain-Palin (much like Ronald Reagan) talk about the American dream, that anyone willing to work can build a life for themselves and their families.
Obama speaks at Planned Parenthood in support of their abortion policies. Personally, I am pro-life. I believe that every baby has the right to life. Why should we put people in jail who commit murder, but give the OK to a pregnant woman to end the life of an innocent child? Even those who are pro-choice, who believe that women should have the right to make their own decisions about such things, should acknowledge that decisions should always be made after all information is considered. Planned Parenthood is not just pro-choice, they are anti-life. They do not want a woman to have information about options such as adoption, or all of the facts about the emotional and medical risks of abortion. I cannot support a candidate who agrees with Planned Parenthood and wants my tax money to support it.
A tree with shallow roots is easily blown by the slightest storm, whereas a tree with roots that go deep into good ground will stand. America will stand with McCain-Palin. I want to live in the world that Ronald Reagan envisioned. America the strong, the proud, the moral, the just, where opportunity abounds for anyone willing to work for the American dream. I will not support someone who talks out of both sides of his mouth in order to appeal to whatever group that is listening, someone who aligns himself with terrorist and radicals but then claims ignorance. We need to trust our leaders. McCain has served our country and proven that he is a man we can trust.
A house divided against itself will fall. Obama will increase the divide. McCain wants to unite both parties with his cabinet so that is the best choice for unity. And now more than ever, with all that we face in our world today, American needs unity!
