I will be watching the debates tonight since I missed the first two, this despite the voice in my head saying Mike, you're wasting your time, you should watch the baseball game. Perhaps so. But another voice says maybe you'll see why it's important to vote for Obama because he is just a power craving second hander like the Clintons who may try some socialist nonsense but will cave in when resisting heat is applied ala Hillary Care. The voices went back and forth.
"You may see that McCain will be strong on defense."
"So? What good is defense if there is nothing left to defend; if all that's left is a nation of thugs, moochers and looters?"
"But McCain is the only one of the two who has said that Washington is part of the problem and he will make changes there. Obama doesn't even think in those terms."
"Ok. So he makes a few changes in Washington. So what? Reagan did that. Did it help capitalism? Nope."
"No but it did buy us about two decades in time to spread the right ideas and that's what McCain will do."
"No he won't. He's not another Reagan. Besides, it was 4 years of Carter that made the electorate embrace Reagan and that's what's got to happen now. Four years of Obama will make the people so ready for a McCain that it'll be 2 decades before another Dem is elected. EGADS! What am I saying?"
I told the voices to calm down till after the debates and I'll let them have input on my post maybe tonight or in the morning.
