The Independent voter (me) is leaning towards the McCain Palin ticket for many reasons, TRUST, CHARACTER and INTEGRITY being among the top criteria.
As for experience, who, really tell me who, is ever experienced enough to be President?
Experience is not on my list of criteria. Was George Washington experienced? Yes, I know he was a General, but that is not experience in leading a country. There is literally no job on earth that can qualify as proper “experience” for being the President of the US.
McCain, however, has the experience by most standards. More importantly, to me at least, is that he has a history of public service that cannot be equalled by anyone who has thrown their hat into the ring of campaigning for President.
While I am still torn and saddened by the lack of concern by many Republicans for the “least” of our citizenry, and indeed, the rhetoric of some who would like to see an end to welfare programs, I am still inclined to vote for McCain / Palin.
I have supported McCain in the past, but until he chose Palin, I thought he would not be able to usher in the changes that he has fought for these many years.
Above all, I would like to see honesty and concern for ALL citizens become the governing factor that directs our folks in Washington.
McCain and Palin are our best chance for restoring honesty and integrity in Washington (IMHO).
