I've listened to the words of our candidates and pundits for as long as I can stand it. I no longer know who is telling the truth. And, unless I were to hunt down and ready every word and action ever undertaken by our politicions I'll never know the truth.
So, the only barometer I can use are the words I know the candidates have said. Not what the pundits tell us the words 'mean' that the candidates said. Suffice it to say that both candidates have made blunders in the past. I can't hold that against them. I've made mistakes also.
I am voting for John McCain and here's why. Barak Obama, at an April 6th Fund Raiser in California said something to the effect that said Americans were clinging to guns, religion... and other things because we were annoyed at Washington.
That statement more than anything else tells me the cut of this man. He does not hold the constitution or the right given to us by the constitution to keep and bear arms or our sacred beliefs in our various religions in high esteem. Why is that bad? Because when the winds in Washington blow in a direction against these rights and freedoms, he does not have the deep core belief that holds one steady in a 'storm of change'. With out a core belief in any argument of any kind, one can and will be swayed. Barak will lean with the wind, not against it.
We don't need to be loud and boisterous to show support for our candidate. Lets show our support by going to the voting booths across this country.
Please send this out to everyone you know with the instructions to spread it as far and fast as possible. We need to win this election.
American, Christian, Male and not appologizing for any of it, ever!

Hamas Endorses Obama (old news, but bears repeating)
On Sunday, Aaron Klein and John Batchelor interviewed Ahmed Yousef, chief political adviser to the Prime Minister of Hamas, on WABC radio. The interview produced a scoop which, for some reason, has not been widely publicized: Hamas has endorsed Barack Obama for President. Yousef said, "We like Mr. Obama and we hope he will win the election." Why? "He has a vision to change America." Maybe Yousef has some insight into what Obama means by all these vague references to "change."
Of course, Hamas's taste in American presidents is suspect. Yousef also described Jimmy Carter, who was about to pay a call on Hamas when the interview was taped, as "this noble man" who "did an excellent job as President."
Yousef was asked about Obama's condemnation of Carter's visit with Hamas, but didn't seem troubled by it. Hamas, he says, understands American politics; this is the election season, and everyone wants to sound like a friend of Israel. Nevertheless, he hopes that the Democrats will change American policies when they take office.
