The big vote is tomorrow

Monday, November 3, 2008 in My Opinions and Rantings (Views: 5269)
So tomorrow is the big day, and all bets are off when it comes to a prediction about the election tomorrow. But, it seems unlikely that any new facts will come up before tomorrow, so here is the comparison between Obama and McCain.

So, what is the ultimate differences? Very little really in the respect that neither one is telling the truth of what they will be doing. So in theory, all bets are off about what will actually happen once either one is elected. This battle comes down to one thing: The devil we know vs. the devil we don't.

Enter...

McCain

This is the devil we know. Obama makes it clear and goes a great job of selling him as the typical Republican. Honestly, we've heard about all the standard lines - removing government waste, clearing the deficit, blah blah. Since I've been old enough to speak and understand English, I've heard all this before.

So, really once McCain becomes President, we can expect little or no change. All of this "mavericky" talk will fall by the wayside.

Obama

This is the devil we don't know. He runs on a platform of change also, but we aren't sure what the change actually means or what he truly stands for. We've all seen the "Joe the Plumber" stuff, we've seen inconsistencies in what he says. We've seen his tax plan go from families making less than $250,000 a year to $150,000 to $120,000 having tax relief and protection.

We don't know what other plans he has up his sleeve. Really, his plan for change has been a secret, and he runs from any challenges. So, all bets are off when it comes to a President Obama run as to what changes are coming.

So, it becomes an issue of who do you trust, or who you don't distrust more.

My prediction for tomorrow? People love to be on the winning team, and Obama certainly looks ahead in the polls. As someone who voted for McCain, I was never polled. The liberal media has certainly polled more democrats to make things look good for Obama. But, I think a lot of people who are voting McCain were never asked.

I think tomorrow many Obama voters who were polled will either not show or flip sides. Some who are voting just because Obama is black may come to their senses and vote based on Obama's character. Consequently, I think that a lot of Palin supporters will be voting when they traditionally wouldn't. The sad part is many are voting McCain just because Palin is a woman. So, you'll see a lot of your soccer mom types stop their busy schedule and get out and vote. Hopefully people won't be voting for Palin just because she is a woman.

Kind of reminds us of the democrat primary - are you a racist or sexist? We'll find out tomorrow.
