When I heard who McCain picked, I was overjoyed with excitement.  Finally someone who I can relate to.

She has her good and bad points.. Yes it is great that she is not afraid to throw other politians under the bus for over spending.. and it is good that she will stand fast to her convictions and beliefs. I just wonder what will change or what she will have changed in the pro-life arena.  Her own daughter is pregnant and not wanting to keep the child, yet she is making that choice for her by not allowing her to abort and there have even been talks that she is forcing a marriage to save face.  There is a time to look out the window and a time to look in the mirror.  You cant change what has already happened, but she could admit that maybe her parenting style is what lead to this happening.

 

Conservatives tend to believe that "abstinence only" should be taught in schools, and that simply not talking about a problem will make sure it never happens.  I personally dont want someone in the whitehouse who has this view.  We already have too many teen parents. These are children who dont know the first thing about taking care of themselves let alone a child.  I know these are things you learn as you experience them, but these are supposed to be our future.. and we are not molding them to make good choices. 

 

This is not the only issue that is lacking for her.. there has been a clear and concise limit to education programs in schools. Religion has no place in schools and teaching the "creation theory" is just plain wrong.  Let everyone believe what they will, but that is a families choice whether or not to introduce religion to a child, not the local, state or federal governments.  If that is allowed, what will be next?  That is why we have public and private schools. If you want your child introduced to any type of religion, find a school that teaches your beliefs. 

 

These of course are just subjects that mean something to me.. there are other reasons for people whether or not they are for or against McCain/Palin.

 I know exactly what you mean....finally someone I can relate too!  I really can´t help but like her, in spite of a few shortcomings.

Some of what you say is simply not true.. Palins daughter never said she didn´t want the child, again this is what the left wing media is exploiting and it´s simply not true.  What does her personal family issues have to do with being a good politican by the way? Conservatives don´t have a problem with sex education and yes they do teach this in public AND pivate schools, I know this from experience.  The problem they have is Obama wanting to teach this to first graders.. Teaching "abstinence only" is not a result for growing teen pregnancies.  I´m interested to know what Turkey´s teenage pregnancy rate is.

 

State and religion doesn´t have a place in schools, however we still impose our Christian religion holidays on children who are in public schools.  Tell those children they will no longer have plays or christmas break...why is everyone such afraid of religion.  The last time I looked saying a little prayer never hurt anyone.  Maybe that´s the problem with kids these days.

 I dont think her family issues have anything to do with whether she is a good candidate or not.  I just wonder what she will change with her pro-life views.  I think that every woman should have the option available to her whether or not to keep a child.  That should not be used as a form of birth control, as some have done, but it should still be an option with no strings attached to it.  There are many that would see that changed.  I have also not heard of Obama wanting to teach this to first graders.  I dont think they would understand nor be intrested in such a topic!

 

I also think that Turkey has a much lower rate simply because they have such strong family bonds.  We dont have much of that here anymore.  Teens simply dont listen to their parents nor respect them.  Also we have parents here who have children and then dont teach them or guide them into adulthood.  Family ties here are not strong, like they are in Turkey or many of the other ME nations. 

 

I am not saying that religion is a bad thing.  Religion is a defining character for many people. I think if we were more religious we wouldnt have some of the issues we have today.  That does not mean that we should teach that in school though. That just means that parents should have an active part in their childrens lives and teach them these beliefs.  I too believe that prayer never hurt anyone, but with so many religions here in the states, I think that would either teach acceptance or create hostilites.  Acceptance and understanding are of course good things to achieve, but all to often it is the hostilities that are happening.  This would just be another reason to single someone or a group out in schools.  We already have enough of that I think.

 In Turkey teenage pregrancies happen but they happen in villages and among low educated people who do not even go to school.

 Why am I not amazed at this? {#lang_emotions_head_bang}  I for one think she is dangerous. If you don´t want an abortion, don´t have one! Different religions have very different views on when life begins. Don´t force your ideas on anyone else!

 

As for being able to manage things, she was mayor of a town with no debts and left it with over $20 million in debts. Another thing I question her loyalty to the US seeing as she has been involved in a succecionist movement aka the AIP.

 

Add to that the fact that she supports the ariel hunting of wolves and bears, and sued the US government over the Polar Bear´s status on the endangered species act.

 

"Palin argued there is not enough evidence to support a listing. Polar bears are well-managed and their population has dramatically increased over 30 years as a result of conservation, she said."

 

Then there is the issue no sex education, global warming denial...I could go on and on and on....I can´t fathom how any thinkng woman could support her.

Well here´s a news flash for you Alamada, she has won the hearts of thousands of woman.. So please do no insult us THINKING woman. Ironically enough she is more qualified than Obama..hahaa. Why do you think the demoncratic party is so threatened by her.  They have to resort to insulting her parenting skills and having to balance raising a family. 

She has made more executive decisions in 2 years as a governor than Obama has in his whole career.  She has led a budget of 10 billion and managing over 24,000 people compared to Obama who gives his experience as managing a campaign of 2, 500.  Nice comparison, huh.

 

I´m so tired of the environmentialists in this world, they tend to care more for the polar bears than for the survival of human beings.  People are tired of hearing..oh the polar bears.  It´s time to drill!  I could go on as well. Do you want to talk about Obamas corruption with the Chicago mob next?

 I don´t think you fathom very much, alameda.  Not everyone agrees with your views and that doesn´t make us stupid.
