    I wish I could vote for Alan Keyes, or Chuck Baldwin; but I find myself leaning towards the "vote for the lesser evil" this time around.

    I sit here and can't help but think: When it all comes down to the wire, there's only one basic difference between the primary candidates.

    We're in the process of removing troops from Iraq; something that Obama has said he will do, and that we're sure McCain will continue.

    We're in the process of adding troops to Afghanistan; something that Obama has said he will do, and we're sure McCain will continue.

    Obama says he won't do any new drilling; McCain says he will, but any new drilling will take several years to actually start producing, so that's more of a "wait and see."

    Obama wants to increase funding to the United Nations for several programs; McCain wants to increase spending in several areas, too.

    When it all boils down to it, the only difference between the two candidates is their stance on the abortion issue.

    Perhaps I'm simplifying too much, but this is where I'm sitting at this moment. I just don't see any real differences between the "way forward" between the two candidates, and I don't see any "change" from the way things are working now. Doesn't matter the running mate for either side; that's turned into more of a way for us to avoid looking at the big, important issues and focus on the "sensational" ones.

    Feel free to flame me. Wouldn't be the first time I'm totally wrong, or too far off the wall.

    Wow, let's see:

    1. Obama means higher taxes
    2. Obama means socialized medicine and income redistribution
    3. Obama means government handouts(give them a fish instead of teaching them how to fish)
    4. Obama means a weakened military
    5. Obama means bigger government
    6. Obama means ultra Liberal Supreme Court nominees
    7. Obama means gay rights
    8. Obama means we would have lost the war
    9. Obama means more associations such as Ayers, Rev. Wright etc...
    10. Obama means we have a great speaker and no leadership as President
    11. Obama means the #1 and #3 most Liberal Senators are in office
    12. Obama means 40 million abortions and counting for years to come. 3,000 per day being murdered and no end in sight.:tear:

    Other then that there's not much difference--roll eyes.

    Yep, you summed it up. There is a lot more than just the abortion issue, even though that is the one with highest priority. And there are other differences, as well, but what you listed is more than sufficient.
