This morning I wrote a very long post about my endorsement for George W. Bush for President. When I went to post it, my blog editor (ecto) crashed and took the post with it.
I’m sorry but I’m not going to take a bunch of time to rewrite that post. Once was enough!
In any event, I support George W. Bush for President.
I can’t vote libertarian, though I’m a registered libertarian still, because their candidate this time is a nutjob and I completely disagree with their approach to the war on terrorism and our role in Iraq.
I can’t support Kerry for a number of reasons – many of which revolve around his flip-flopping, his choice of a running mate, his general approach to the war on terrorism, our role in Iraq, his desire to use the UN for everything, his tax policy, and his record in the US Senate. Not to mention that he’s been my Senator for the last six years and I’m still trying to figure out what he’s done during that time.
Bush gets my vote for a number of reasons – somewhat because he’s not Kerry, but more importantly because I believe he sees a changed world before us and is attempting to deal with that world. I’m not going to say that I agree with all of his policies and decisions, but he is the better candidate in my mind. Living in Massachusetts, I’m well aware that my vote will be canceled out due to Kerry taking Massachusetts by storm, but I voted my conscience.
I do lament the fact that once again, the best folks are not running. I would have preferred a challenge between Giuliani or Romney against Hillary or Evan Bayh or others. But that’s not to be. Perhaps in 2008. And if Evan Bayh runs, I’m going to be hard pressed to vote against him. Gotta support those Hoosiers.
I’m in Florida tonight, we’re planning on watching the election results at a local watering hole and then here at home in front of the television. I do hope that this election ends sometime in the next 24 hours. And whoever wins, I’ll support them as President. And that’s alot more than many on the left are going to do should Bush be re-elected.
