Well, Dave and I talked politics tonight. He has always voted Republican. Ugh. We agree on important issues; gay marriage should be legal, we are pro-choice, and we are pro women's rights..in general. He and I are soooo sick of the "religious fanatics" having a stronghold on politics in this country. So I asked him, "why in the hell would you vote for John McCain?"
His answer? Because, historically, democrats eat my tax breaks. I ask, "are you, or your parents, so rich that you fall within the tax breaks the Republicans offer?" No. Not at all. They give tax breaks to the very, very rich. Go figure.
So, what is the reason you would vote for McCain...and don't you even tell me it is because of that "Caribou Barbie" chick!! Lipstick on pit bulls...or on pigs. No matter. She is NOT a vote for women's rights; which men and women alike should care about
Dave had to agree...he has no damned reason to vote for McCain...even with the "Caribou Barbie" VP.... who'd rather shoot a women's rights activist before listening to one.
Please....vote for Obama..if you care about human rights at all. I am hoping my husband will vote for Obama..behind the curtain.. in the private voting booth.
(note: I first heard the term "Caribou Barbie" over at http://www.hahnathome.com/ )
