This election has me worn out. What is there to say that has not already been said? The battle lines have been drawn, and frankly, barring any unforeseen world events, the outcome depends on which politician told the best story.

Part of the problem for me is that I have already made my decision and moved on. I am voting for McCain on 4 November, and I am also dedicated to the idea that I cannot be part of the process that brought our political hopes to this point.

Unfortunately, in the mean time, there are still fourteen days until the general election and there might be a few people left to convince. Most polls show as many as 12% of voters are still undecided, a historical first. I wonder what it takes to break that kind of voter paralysis after two years of campaigning?

How did we get to this point? More importantly, how do we fix it?

    I was a decided voter over a month ago. (Actually, I decided during the Primary election when I voted for Hillary because Obama scares the **** out of me and I thought McCain stood a better chance against her.) I have really only watched three things….period.

    1) The McCain announcement of Palin (I actually listened to the announcement speech and presentation on the radio).

    2) I watched the first VP debate.

    3) I was in the audience when both McCain and Biden spoke at the National Guard Association of the United States in September in Baltimore.

    The country is deeply divided. I think the choice is clear. I am putting my eggs in the integrity and service before self basket.

    I am not worn out like you as I only stepped into the circus for three events.

    Unfortunately, I think we are in for some very challenging times as a nation under the Obama/Biden legacy. We (the Rupper house) will vote and keep our fingers crossed but I believe we will come up short.

    Simply put, my Christian conservative friends, we must vote for the candidates who want to manage our money and guns most responsibly. Senator Obama seems like and enterprising, pacifist even though his name has a “bomb” in it. He is too immature a politician. He will more than likely have alot of guns pointed at him, (KKK and such). I do not wish this upon him, of course. He needs growth time before an executive, commission which I don’t want for him. So, I ask you: would you be ready for the Biden administration? And big ninny, Matt Damon is worried about Governor Palin being president (see You Tube, Matt Damon on Sarah Palin). She’ll be a lot more fun to send to the Middle east than Dan Quayle was.
    Senator McCain walked out of a cage after one of the worst wars in USA’s, history. This man knows what to do with a gun. I just hope, he know’s what to do with our money.
    McCain is prolife. Obama says to acknowledge life in a conceived child’s life is above his pay grade. How much does he need to get paid to acknowledge the right to life? I suppose the office of President of the United States is not a high enough honor for that? Also, is it wise to have an Islamic sympathizer in the office of Commader in Chief when the Middle East is so close to Jihad. Figure that America.
    Money is on McCain, the Man With Our Golden Guns. “Remember the Alamo and Pearl Harbor.”

    Punctuation error. Sorry!
    Is it wise to have an Islamic sympathizer in the office of Commander in Chief when the Middle East is so close to jihad(?)
