    Since you asked, I don't think he has much. He doesn't take stands because that's not how you get elected, and he knows it. Have you seen the evil smile he's always holding back? Looks like this:

    Have you seen the robotic smile of McCain? Creeps me out. He also speaks to the people like someone talking to five-year-olds.

    Well, Ok, I should have said that it isn't what democracy is supposed to be. You are right, people do have the right not to think about anything and go with the flow, then complain later what a big mistake it was for them to choose the wrong guy.

    That explains the slightly mechanic act, but not why he is condescending...

    I'm voting for Mickey Mouse because he's the best cartoon character of the three. That's just my humble opinion, though.

    Yeah, but keep in mind that we are still involved in a conflict. Iran and now Russia are potentially a serious issue as well. Starting fires is one thing but possessing the poise and spine needed to resolve issues is another. That should be seriously considered when looking at the candidates.

    John McCain on the Issues

    They're both retarded candidates, but Obama scares the fuck out of me. He considers Bill Ayers to be a good friend. If he only had one nutcase friend, I could consider that to be an aberration. But he has several long-time friendships with radicals, people who hate this country. That's not something I can just dismiss. Why does he want to be president? What does he actually plan on doing once he's elected? I don't believe a word he says because what he's saying, now, is inconsistent with the rest of his life.

    McCain is far from being my ideal choice, but voting in Obama...that could be the worst mistake this country ever makes.

    That is needlessly hyperbolic. I'd never vote for the guy, but we've made some FAR more grievous mistakes as a country. Civil War? Internment camps? Dropping atomic bombs?

    So you're saying there's no way that electing Obama could be worse than any of those? I disagree. I think he'll give away our sovereignty.

    I wish Hillary had won the primary. At least then we'd know what to expect.
