I really hope this Election will not be, for me, like the last couple have been. I REALLY want to be able to pick someone I like, not just the best of the worst. When it comes to preference in parties, I would say that I am a little bit of both. I do not think either party has it completely right. So where do I stand right now, a mere day before the Virginia primaries?
It’s something like this…
I am completely intrigued by the fair tax, or as some call it, the consumption tax. Since I have had a job, I have disliked the tax system with a passion. I pay when I get it and I pay when I spend it. I realize that the fair tax would be roughly equal to what I am paying in taxes currently, but it allows me to choose whether or not to pay taxes and for that I am very interested. Simplicity @ it’s finest!
That statement alone pretty much leaves me with Huckabee, who I have been interested in for the duration.
So what’s going to happen if Huckabee is defeated by McCain? Which seems very possible at this point.
That’s where it gets sticky. I actually like McCain because he seems to be a little bit of both, like I am, but his view on the war may be enough to keep me away. I am not for an instant cut bait and run scenario, but I definitely think it’s time to rework the plan and consider going at things in a different way.
So if I choose to stay away from McCain will who is next on the list?
Well, Ron Paul is still interesting, but his only chance is to run as an independent, which I have expected from the get go.
If I jump on the D bus, Obama is a front runner in my mind simply because he is different and I don’t want another Clinton in the White House. I am not against a female President, but I am against two families tag teaming the White House. Seriously…think about it. The White House has been held by a Bush or a Clinton for the last 20 years! I am not ready for more of the same, from the same, for the next 4 to 8 years. It’s time to shake things up a little bit don’t ya think.
So there it is. A nutshell view of what is going on in my head, politically.
Go Vote Tomorrow!
