The Great Debate

I just watched the first presidential debate. I don't like politics. I will vote for John McCain. For a few reasons, which I won't bore you with.

Just kidding.

Abortion. McCain is stronger on abortion. When I say stronger, I mean he seems to agree that it is wrong to kill babies. I won't I don't love the fact that people vote on one issue (namely abortion), and I'm not entirely voting on abortion, I also like what little I know about his other policies, such as foreign policy, but abortion is a deal breaker for me. I am hopeful that his choice of Sarah Palin is the best chance that has come along in a long time to reverse Roe v. Wade.

I thought McCain did well in the debate, and Obama was not impressive. I am not objective. Or well-informed. And I always think it's a little lame when conservatives complain about the "liberal media," but man, there is a lot of truth to it. Immediately after the debate, I saw a few reactions from a few networks, and they definitely made it look like Obama was impressive and McCain was not. Sheesh.

I will not say much on this blog about politics. I genuinely do not like them, and honestly know little about them. In summary, what I am saying is that abortion is murder and a big deal, the media is liberal and disappointing, and politics are frustrating.

Politics isn't the answer.

2 things, no three:

1. Thanks for not blogging too much about politics.

2. Thanks give for giving reasons why you're voting for so-and-so rather than reasons you're not voting for that other guy.

three: I still haven't made a for sure decision about who to vote for (as I also don't subscribe to politics), but probably should soon...I don't even know the deadline for absentee ballots. Whoever wins will probably have good intentions (most importantly).

and on two, by "thanks give for giving" I don't really know what I was trying to say. Probably just take out the word "give" and it will make more sense.

I was probably just thinking about thanksgiving, the best holiday on the planet. Except, did you know they don't celebrate thanksgiving here? What is up with that?! How can the best holiday on the planet not be celebrated by the whole planet? That is what I'm concerned about. Moreso than politics.

Yes, I will not blog much about politics.

And upon hearing that there is no thanksgiving there, I am more steadfast than ever in my decision not to move there.

In fact I will not even step foot on their soil until they remedy the situation.

Laura said...

This comeback is like 53 years later but, maybe you should decide who to vote for based on their views about worldwide holidays?

when are you going to give us a post about last night? Just curious.

Laura said...

I'm not even done* with facebook for 2 minutes, and already you're changing statuses (stati?) of importance?!

*On sabbatical. Steve still keeps me up to date.
