I will have to atone for this post

Does McCain even want to win?
Bigger government the theme Tuesday night

When John Kerry ran against George Bush in 2004, it was hard to find actual Kerry supporters. People who voted for the Massachusetts senator didn't vote for him they voted against George Bush. While anti-Bush attitudes ran strong amongst liberals and many independents during the last election cycle, it wasn't enough to propel Kerry to a November victory. John McCain appears to have a similar problem and unless something drastically changes within the next month, McCain will suffer a similar fate.

When Tuesday evenings debate ended I was disgusted at what I had just witnessed. So many aspects of the 90 minutes pissed me off, It's hard to know exactly where to begin.

If I hear John McCain tell America one more time about his experience and reaching across the aisle to work with Russ Feingold and Ted Kennedy, I may need to shove a fork in my eye to dull the pain. Hey John, those are arguably the worst pieces of legislation you ever got passed. I'd shut up about that. Besides, conservatives and many independents don't need to be reminded that you have worked with Socialists on more than one occasion.

At a time when America is finally waking up to the fact that Sen. Obama lied about his relationship with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, why not hammer that home with the nationwide audience? America already has reservations about Obama's judgement about the surge in Iraq and his choice of spiritual leaders. Remind them that he enjoys the company of terrorists.

But no. McCain decides to tell the viewers of his new 300 billion dollar spending plan to buy up mortgages, so people can renegotiate their loans at current market value. Are you kidding me?

It's bad enough that Obama wants to spend an additional 800 billion dollars on big government programs. For some insane reason you want to compete with his lunacy.

So I find myself at a crossroads. No it isn't that I'm not sure who I should vote for on November 4Th, I will cast my vote for McCain. With all of McCain's faults and failures, Obama is worse times ten.

My original concern has never changed. No Jew in their right mind would ever vote for Obama. Barack and Michelle selected a church that is the heart and soul of black anti-Semitism in Chicago to worship and raise their two daughters. Obama has tapped an array of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic foreign policy advisers to educate him on foreign policy matters. So as a father and a Jew, no way can I vote for Obama.

As an ardent supporter of the free market and a strong believer in small, very limited and accountable government, no way can I even consider supporting Obama.

What concerns me is that I am also not voting for McCain. Sure, he will get my vote, but it's not because I want him in the Oval Office. It's that the idea of Obama as President keeps me up at night. The idea of McCain as President just reassures me that things won't get any worse.

I just don't know if they will get better.
