After finding out that Governor Palin was named as McCain’s VP, I just find the ticket demoralizing. Basically the social conservatives own the party, if you are not socially conservative the party is not for you. Even though you may agree with the Republican Party’s views on Iraq, Russia and energy exploration. If you are not socially conservative, there is nothing to be enthusiastic for this ticket. Since there has not been many ban-abortion, ban same sex marriage initiatives on the ballot, McCain had to do something to get the base to vote for him.
Palin has views that are outside the mainstream like banning all forms of birth control and condoms even for married and straight couples.
I would not expect McCain to support Ridge or Lieberman, but this choice does not inspire me.
Why don’t we focus on issues aside from the cultural issues. Like a balanced budget, energy exploration, reforming the health care system.
I just can not support Obama, he’s dangerous just like President Carter who helped increase Islamic radicalism. It seems third party will be the way it will be for me.
And sadly McCain did a rash decision that will lead to Obama winning Alaska.
