This is great... really really good. Right after I post this thread I will be posting McCain's 10 worst ideas according to Foreign Policy.

Whether or not I or anyone else agrees with everything on this list is moot what is important is that we discuss this as opposed to Obama's middle name or his connection with Ayers or any of that other bullhooey.

The only way we can vote intelligently is to set all of that aside and start paying attention to the real issues and the real ideas.

I have to say that I agree with the article and why these are bad ideas.

Both sides have bad ideas and it is as important to discuss their negative ideas as it is to discuss their positive ideas.

We need to stop the rabid and hysteric posts and start discussing the issues... If we fall for the same old crap and vote or fears as opposed to voting knowledgeably we are screwed.
