Who are you voting for and what is the biggest reason you are swaying that way?

I'm curious about other moms and what they believe. I have never voted before but want to be well informed when I do this year so can you help me out?

  • McCain
    1. his healthcare plan. Obamas just dosen't add up or make sense to those who can do math
    2. His stance on abortion.
    3. His tax policies. Obamas plan to tax the rich more is wrong, imo
    4. more experience in government, by far.
    5. More knowledge of our military. You shouldn't be able to be commander in chief of our military unless you have done the job yourself.

    I'm sure there are more but i'm just pulling these off the top of my head.

  • Obama. McCain is too old and has told a lot of lies. It will be like another 4 years of Bush if we elect McCain.

  • I'm voting for Alan Keyes, namely, because I absolutely don't agree with either of the main candidates and fully agree with Alan Keyes.

  • I'm voting McCain.....all politicans lie. Obama as well. Obama just doesn't make sense...Universal healthcare...lower preminums..ok that doesn't add up....more tax credits for people who don't pay taxes as it is..........partial birth abortion..........sitting down with terrorist....
    I know McCain isn't perfect by far but he does believe in America.

  • I don't agree with Obama in a lot of things, but what does McCain having been a prisoner of war have taught him anything? Most people don't learn to run a country sitting in a cage in a jungle

  • McCain...
    1) experience
    2) dedication to the country
    3) he's walked in my combat boots...as a veteran I want someone who knows what it's like to serve before he sends my toosh into a war
    4) He isn't the second coming of Bush...get real...he's nothing like him.

  • Obama. I agree more with his policies, and his values are more alike to mine than McCain's are. I can't stand McCain/Palin for numerous reasons.

  • Ron Paul.
    He wants a fair tax plan
    He wants to bring us home from the war


    'While more than 90% of Americans know who John McCain and Barack Obama are, third-party candidates like Chuck Baldwin, Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney and Bob Barr are virtually ignored by the mainstream media and prohibited from participating in the televised Presidential debates.' http://www.ronpaul.com/[
