To quote the Hubby, “It’s ridiculous for politicians to say, ‘He’s a tax and spend person, but I’m not,’ because the whole point of government is to tax — to gain revenue for the budget — in order to spend — to fund programs and infrastructure. The only difference between the two parties is what they tax and what they spend.”
I thought of this when I read this. Pro/con, pro/con. In all the hoopla about VP picks, we gotta remember that it’s McCain or Obama who’s going to be the POTUS, not Palin or Biden. For some people, knowing that, they’ve made their decision. (Of course, if one of them gets horribly ill or dies in office, ala JFK or Roosevelt, then that’s another thing.)
Sometimes it sucks to be an independent, especially since I actually intend to vote this year without holding my nose for a change.
