Instead of pouring dirt on each of the candidate (there is equally enough for both parties) why not just say what is important to you. I'll vote for Democrats ( just happens to be Obama but I could careless) because: Democrats have nothing to gain from military actions or wars so more likely to stop military spending, killing people and own kids, and more likely to heal relationships with other countries. In 4 years economy will be better than it is today regardless of candidate. Palin is a beautiful lady who doesn't believe in abortion so what? Should Republicans ban abortions (which I do not see happening) some doctors will move to Canada and Mexico, use of contraceptives will go up. Are there any good reasons to vote for Republicans? If you have good reasons I will vote for Republicans. Saying that Obama is black with unusual name not a good reason for me. Is putting dirt on one candidate makes another one better?
