I Won't Vote For McCain

If you are a blog fanatic, as I am, you see a lot of "Ill never vote for John McCain because.....".

And I agree totally with that sentiment.

When I vote for John McCain again (I did it 9 or 13 times in the recent primary - hey, it's Illinois we got to keep up tradition) it will not be a vote for him. It will be a vote against the Hillary/Obama surrender axis.

We can stand socialism lite and winning. We cannot stand socialism heavy and losing.

I hope everyone who decides not to vote for McCain remembers the Congressional elections. I am a Canadian so I don't get a say but I would give anything to see large numbers of Dems handed their hats. I won't get my hopes up but can dream.

Conservatives are beginning to amaze me in their inability to see what's really at stake here. This election is about more than McCain and his inability to follow conservative principals.

How is handing the whole country over to far left liberals a suitable alternative to McCain?

There is a serious difference between McCain and a purebread liberal who is bent on destroying ALL conservative values permanantly.

Today’s liberal is not like the Bill Clinton’s Presidency. It’s moved radically left... Clinton is now considered a moderated, and loosing it’s power because it’s not radically liberal enough.

The Democratic candidate that is surging now, Obama, is bottom of the barrel liberal. He is about to take power, unless conservatives stop fighting and get serious.

This would give liberals what they will treat as a clear sign from America that is it ready to move sharply to the left. Not slightly to the left.

Cherry picking our candidate is exactly what got us INTO this mess, and if conservatives aren’t careful, they will allow our country spiral out of control.

There is no such thing as a quick recovery from 4 years of radical liberalism unchecked. We may be facing what will take years and years of damage to undo. What’s more, there’s no guarantee that it WILL be undone. Have conservatives completely forgotten Roe v. Wade and other extremely important issues?

Questioning McCain was right and highly useful for a time and a season. Many of us wish we had acted sooner to support Romney or Huck.... But staying home on election day allows liberals a pass to capture all THREE branches of Government. Our kids deserve better out of us.

I'm not asking anyone to sacrifice their own belief or convictions, but we have a serious problem here that requires that we do everything we can to minimize the damage this election can cause to our society.

I’d rather have 50% of McCains ear, than 0% of a liberals ear.

Give it some thought, friends.

Roe v Wade is an 'extremely important issue' when our economy is failing and we continue to spen $333 million in Iraq EVERY DAY!!??


Another study just came out that shows even more convincingly the nature of this ailment called conservatism... it is actually rooted in the neurology of a person.

You just might be interested in why conservatives seem to be hard wired into dogmatism. It appears that it may be due to a genetic disposition in the way we think. In general, liberals tend to be much more adaptable than conservatives, and are better at problem solving and with responses designed to cope with changing circumstances. This is shown in a number of studies, particularly this one published by Nature Neuroscience Journal last Oct.

The study found:
"liberalism was associated with stronger conflict-related anterior cingulate activity, suggesting greater neurocognitive sensitivity to cues for altering a habitual response pattern" and "conservatives show more structured and persistent cognitive styles, whereas liberals are more responsive to informational complexity, ambiguity and novelty."

Essentially, conservatives tend to rely on ‘persistence’ in a ‘habitual response pattern,’ despite signals that this response pattern should change. It also explains why some conservatives are more susceptible to simplified and 'slogan based' politics ... i.e. "moral values"... "cut n' run" etc... also why conservatives are more likely to follow an authoritarian leadership and often resort to denialism when faced with overwhelming evidence.

Stay the course, stay the course, stay the course…. need I say more?

Which explains perfectly why liberals still espouse socialism despite the obvious disasters of National Socialism and Soviet Socialism.
