I went to watch the debate with a group called, The Stonewall Democrats, with a friend I made at Outmusic Open mike. It was at a bar and wasn't the best place because of the noise. People probably talked more during McCain's talking and paid better attention while Barack was talking.
What got me about that, and I mentioned it to my friend, is that McCain is still in this race; he may be our next President. If we don't know what he is planning to do, then we can't make an informed decision on our vote and subsequent votes that are coming up that have to do with our local government.
McCain talks so much of a spending freeze BUT he continues to talk about "buying up these bad loans". He continually talks about "reaching across the aisle" BUT he's reached across to vote on some of the worst bills to come up that are AGAINST early child education, AGAINST tax cuts for the poor, AGAINST oversight on Medicaid spending, AGAINST a woman's right to change, AGAINST civil liberties for gays in America, AGAINST new energy alternatives.
McCain continually says that he knows how to fix our problems; he knows how to win wars; he knows how to keep people in their homes. Do you believe him? He's been in the Senate for over 20 years and we've seen him vote AGAINST these things again and again.
What's the real deal?
