A new page in America’s history books is about to begin. Come November the
44th president of the United States will be selected from one of the two political parties.
The choice will be between Barack Obama, the front runner for the Democratic Party and
John McCain, the front runner for the Republican Party. Obama is a strong advocate for
eliminating the capitalistic ideals that our country was founded upon and give the
government more control by adding restrictions and eliminating competition through our
health care system and economy. McCain believes that the power should be vested in the
people and not the government. Competition among health insurance agencies and few
restrictions set by the government will get our country where it needs to be in McCain’s
To whom I’m voting for is McCain but because of a variety of reasons. John
McCain started his career in the military and in fact both his grandfather and father were
Admirals in the Navy. McCain attended the Naval Academy and graduated in 1958.
He was a naval aviator during the Vietnam War who’s plane was shot down and he
became a prisoner of war (POW). He was a POW for five and a half years in which he
endured great tortune before he was released in 1973 under the Paris Peace Accords. John
McCain promies to expand and improve the United States’ Armed Forces for better
Military preparedness. He believes that it is our duty as a powerful free nation to
ensure and protect the rights of others around the world using any measure we see fit,
mediation in foreign affairs, or even the use of military power.
