Deal breakers

Worldview Question of the Day

What is your political deal breaker? What is the issue that is so important to you that, however good a candidate may be otherwise, you will not vote for that person because they are on the wrong side?

For me, the issue is foreign policy. The United States is, by far, the most powerful nation in the world. As the leader of the free world and the founder of libertarian democracy, the United States must defend freedom, liberty, and the inalienable rights of people wherever they are threatened. I do not believe the United States does enough.

Frankly, it is because of this issue alone that I supported John McCain since the beginning. Now that it is McCain/Palin, I support him all the more because his ticket, whatever the question of experience might be, is about doing the right thing with regard to American’s international standing and security.

What about you? Let me know what you think in the comments.

    Had a conversation recently with someone whose deal-breaker was choice. She wanted to support Palin (not so much McCain, but at least Palin) — and agreed with her on small government, economic issues, and several other biggies — but the deal-breaker was Palin’s solid “anti-choice” agenda.

    I suspect that issue, in one form or another, is the deal breaker for quite a few people.

    The deal breaker is energy independence. I think we need a candidate that has VERY STRONG views on getting us off foreign oil. I feel as thought McCain and Palin will bring the correct “change” to Washington with this issue. They have the most experience and are willing to put ALL of the alternatives on the table. Furthermore, our economy will benefit greatly.

    Energy independence is an important issue. It’s interesting to me that more people don’t see it as a deal breaker for them.
