Presidential Campaign 2008


I don't normally get that involved in politics, but I find as a wife and mother it is starting to mean more to me. This year's election is getting so interesting! It is history in the making. This is the most excited I have EVER been about a presidential election! Obama/Biden or McCain/Palin? There are only 67 days left until votes are tallied on Election Day (November 4, 2008). Either ticket will make history...and bring change to Washington. As members of the church we are encouraged to vote by selecting those who most closely represent our values as explained here. I can't wait! Who are you voting for?

Obama/Biden '08!...because I want the best for my children and grandchildren. Oh yeah...and I'm for a little thing called civil rights!

Yeah, we're voting for Obama/Biden, too.
I've been a liberal for a while, though. (I got my Obama shirt in the mail the day of our last Enrichment night, and Mark talked me out of wearing it to Enrichment!)

I really like your blog, Holly.
You are the only one who could pull of a totally controversial topic like politics in such a sweet, unassuming way :)

McCain sure put some new cards out on the table and is playing the 'game' much differently than he did when he was looking for the GOP nomination in 2000... As I've been reading to find out about this 'unknown' Palin, I've found out some interesting things...

It's McCain/Palin for me. And I really like Palin, so far! I appreciate your comment on how we are encouraged as members of the church to vote with who most closely represents our values. Obama/Biden definitely do not represent the values I hold. While our church leaders do not tell us who to vote for, the church has always taken a stand, and encouraged the members to do the same, when moral issues are at stake. McCain is not my favorite... but he's the better choice for me.

This is quite an interesting election year, I agree. But to tell you, Obama scares the freedom out of me. I apologize if I sound offensive to Obama supporters, but I think it's because politics can be an emotional thing for all of us. He is more socialistic than I'm comfortable with. He is more for a larger Fed goverment, which is not how our founding fathers set up our country to be. He promises a lot of change, but a lot of change will require a lot more taxes, even though he promises tax breaks to lots of us. The change he wants will cost money. One example: Our 401k's will be affected. There will be a higher tax on 401k's so when we withdraw, we will not see as much money as originally planned for... etc.
Anyway, there's some of my opinions!
I also don't think Obama's values are close to my values, especially regarding abortion and marriage...

I agree! This election is so much fun. I am voting Obama, Obama, Obama. But I have to say that even if McCain wins, I will like him so much more than Bush. And historic either way.
