It is kind of nice to be so far away during election time. I can set back and watch everyone fight and not feel so attached to one guy or the other. I used to be very active in my State Republican Party. I have ran for State Rep. and other local offices. sadly I have never won. However, I have always said the only way to get a perfect candidate for yourself is to run yourself. So seeing as there are no perfect candidates and the one I wanted isn't running and the two I supported have dropped out I will support the one who is closest to my beliefs. John McCain is my guy for President.
I hear many people saying he isn't conservative enough, he isn't, I hear many people saying he is wrong on immigration, they are right. But even the greatest President of all time, Ronald Reagan did things I didn't like. Using U.S. tax dollars to make states change their seatbelt laws was one of them.
So I do not have to hold my nose and vote for McCain as many have said. I will proudly mail in my absentee ballot for him. As should all of you. The alternatives are not very attractive and I do fully support him on his stance on the war on terror. This is the most important issue to me at the moment.
