This is an easy one - Why this country will fare better under McCain:
1. McCain tax policy doesn't call for increasing corporate taxes, which have shown by example to be counter productive to society (country of Ireland
being the example, which lowered its corporate tax rate to 12.5% from 40% overnight and immediately saw an economic turnaround followed by
productivity and foreign investment).
2. McCain's energy policy is more realistic than Obama's - first, he's pro nuclear and admits we need more nuclear plants, which would create jobs.
McCain is not against clean coal, to which Obama has said he is against all coal; McCain would like to drill in our own country and off our own shores
for oil to gain energy independence from countries that despise us like Venezuela and Saudi Arabia. Benefits of drilling for oil: Current technologies
are formatted for using and refining oil and we know the costs involved and time tables for completion. With Obama's plan, there are too many
unknowns because wind, solar and others are too new to roll out on such large scales, not to mention the cost of changing over formats.
3. No nationalized health care - and no trillion dollar price tag to go with it, as well as no compromising of the health care standards that will
happen if doctors are forced to choose between government and privatization. Most quality care-givers will opt out of the government program, AND
Hawaii has attested to such a program failing after only 7 months when trying it out.
4. McCain will not comromise the second amendment in any way.
5. McCain will not appoint SCOTUS justices that will compromise the Constitution of the United States in any way. With appointment of liberal
justices, we have seen that they plan to alter the intended meaning of the Constitution - case in point, the recent decision on interpreting the
second amendment. The SCOTUS was ONE VOTE away from deciding that the right to bear arms was limited to a national militia and not individual
citizens. ONE VOTE split down party lines - thank you Ted Kennedy!
6. McCain will not back down from the war on terror in any way. He will not falter when it comes to terrorist nations challenging us or our allies. He
will maintain the U.S. presence overseas as long as is necessary to show that we have gone soft, that we do still remember what terrorism brought to
our country on 9/11 and that we will not tolerate it.
I'm sure I'll think of more. Those were just off the top of my head.
