Without bashing the other presidential candidate. Explain why you're voting for your candidate?

I just want to see why you're voting for McCain or Obama.

  • I will vote McCain because he is less pro-choice than Obama. I also believe McCain is more (as well as his wife) in line with my beliefs and American pride.

  • Lesser of the evils, McCain. Better educated.. McCain. Less likely to be tied to terroists... McCain...I could go on but that sums it up for me.

  • I support Obama because I agree with his ideas, particularly those to do with creating a universal healthcare system and ending the war. As a Canadian, now married to an American and living in the US, I am really disappointed to see how much people have to pay for healthcare, and hearing about how they struggle with insurance woes. I am also married to a soldier, and I am tired of hearing about people dying in Iraq(not only the soldiers, but countless innocent Iraqis), in a war that should have never ever happened.

    I have never really cared about politics, until now.

    It is time for a change. Obama=Change

  • I agree with the person above me..although I was more for Hilary...either way it's Democratic all the way....My fiancee is a soldier currently in Iraq and I'm tired of hearing about our boys dying when this should have been done with a long time ago.I'm ready to just bring them home.Theres alot of the other issues I'm all for but it would take all day..Thats just my main thing.

  • I am not sure! I am just disappointed in the choices. If this is the best of the best...it makes me wonder just who is running our country.

  • I like and am voting for Barrack Obama. McCain scares me. He just called for more nuclear power plants, i think this put our country in danger and opens us up for attempts at terrorist attacks. I think we need better options when it comes to energy sources, and our economy, our families, our jobs are all suffering because of this war. I want peace, and better things, I want someone young, and someone who understands us. I think Obama can relate to that, since he didn't have a father growing up, and is partly a minority. He knows what the little people feel, and how hard it can be. He cares about more than just money.
