I watched a couple hours of discussion on CSPAN yesterday including much analysis on why Our Nation must remain in Iraq. The discussion also included extensive thoughts on how much faster Iraq is reconciling politically then other nations in history. Northern Ireland was mentioned as an example. When I read my history book it seems that wars are always long and painful. Listening to people talk one would almost think that wars always went smoothly without any bumps in the road.
I remain committed to standing with our President as America endures in Iraq.
“One day, people will look back at this moment in history and say, ‘Thank God there were courageous people willing to serve, because they laid the foundations for peace for generations to come,’ ” he said. “I have vowed in the past and I will vow so long as I’m president to make sure that those lives were not lost in vain; that, in fact, there’s an outcome that will merit the sacrifice that civilian and military alike have made.” [Read More]
One of the main issues I will be considering as I decide whether or not I can vote for John McCain will be the Supreme Court. On his website, McCain claims to have a philosophy of appointing strict constructionist judges.
If this turns out to be true it will be a major boost of my image of John McCain.
If you want to protest, pick up a sign, but don’t throw away your vote, because if Obama or Clinton get into the White House, we won’t recognize our country four years from now.
I believe that Sen. McCain will do what is best for the country if he hears from us. Encourage him to pick a vice president like Gov. Mike Huckabee who stands for life, marriage and our freedom (and who already won the states he needs to win in November). I believe if enough of us tell him, he will understand that selecting someone like a Mitt Romney would be an absolute disaster. Let him know that we need judges who will protect the innocent, including the unborn, and that adult stem cell research is the research that actually works without killing anyone.
By the way, Sen. McCain can be reached at: 703-418-2008 and at:
The Hon. John McCain
P.O. Box 16118

I know that I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. So the question remains, can I vote for John McCain? Will I be joining James Dobson and others in voting for a third party or withholding my vote completely? (Read More from James Dobson) I am still searching.
