    I want to hear a logical reason to support McCain. 'Because he is the best choice' and 'I do not like Obama' do not count as 'logical' answers.

    Because, he's all like Mavericky.


    Good luck getting an answer out of Cons. They don't even know why they voted for bush...twice!...other than the fact they hated Gore and Kerry.

    There is no logical reason to choose McCain over Obama, they're both the same.

    Because I trust him. He votes closer to my political beliefs than Obama does. He supports the second amendment and don't tell me that Obama does as well. I live in Illinois. I know what our gun laws are like and they suck. Obama wants to ban all handguns and semi-automatic firearms.

    I cannot in good conscience vote for some who wants to limit a fundamental right guaranteed in the Bill of Rights.

    Well John McCain supports the Patriot Act which pretty much destroys our civil liberties... Also, despite their recent endorsement for John McCain, the NRA has had a lot of criticism for McCain in the past.

    Looks okay for me. Nothing completely out of the ordinary. Not 100 percent but I don't 100 percent agree with the NRA.

    Just for fun, go ahead and explain to me how that Patriot Act destroys your civil liberties. Be sure not to use liberal talking points, just facts. Quote the bill, if you can.

    Yes, because all the Dems LOVED Kerry...they were thrilled with that choice...it had nothing to do with voting against Bush...they just wanted the nation to be run by John F. Kerry. ROFL. What a load of crap.

    To start with the simplest answer, McCain was not my choice and I'm not thrilled with the choice I have this year. I'm not excited about his candidacy, but I am very nervous about an Obama presidency. I think that McCain has better "takes" on education, foreign policy, actual bipartisanship, energy, and perhaps most importantly, in my opinion - I would prefer someone who doesn't think that the election of Supreme Court judges should be based on how "empathetic" the judges will be...that alone should disqualify Obama as a serious candidate.

    Kevin's not a Liberal Crimson. So he wouldn't be using Liberal talking points. :lol:
