As a Christian, it is important for me to support politicians who best identify with things in which I believe. That’s not to say that I won’t vote for a non-Christian. In this country we have a separation between church and state. Thus, our freedom of religion is protected. I focus on issues of morality and ethics that should not be faith-exclusive.
The economy is suffering badly, and the deficit of the United States is through the roof. A person doesn’t need a degree in economics to see that. Obviously, whoever gets elected as president has a great deal of work ahead of him. This will severely hinder the implementation of certain plans promised by both candidates, especially by Senator Obama. His ambitious plans involve a great deal of government spending. I fervently believe that McCain is the better of the two candidates, well equipped with experience and a firm comprehension of the problems that must be dealt with.
Many Americans have expressed a concern that Senator McCain and President Bush are too similar. I feel strongly that this is simply not the case. Although he is Republican, McCain is not as conservative as Bush, so his stands on key issues are different. He is an intelligent man, and I have faith that he will not make the same mistakes as his predecessor.
