today is election day in the US...
i wish i could vote!
i've never really been interested in politics here in the UK, but i've been so interested in the US presidential elections recently!
i'm a huge barack obama supporter. i agree with his views/policies on almost everything. i like his views on how to change the economy, withdrawing troops from iraq, gay marriage/equal rights, being pro-choice on the topic of abortion, and so on...
on the opposite hand, i have no idea why anyone would even consider voting for mccain. i understand he does have his strengths. notably his age, and experience. but his views on things seem to be so outdated and closed-minded.
for example, his stance on gay rights and abortion make me so frustrated. he has the same opinions as that of an ignorant, bigoted redneck. damn republicans.
i'm probably slightly uninformed on some topics surrounding each candidate's policies, and i'll not pretend i'm an expert on the presidential debates, because i'm not. but i know enough to make an educated decision on who i think would be best as the next president.
the polls are currently showing that obama is favourite to win. i dearly hope the polls are correct.
(forgive me if i've insulted anyone reading this who supports mccain. i'm just stating my opinions.)
