POTUS 2008 **edited**

30 Aug

Okay, I have made it fairly clear to family & friends that I am not a McCain fan.  I even have made the statement that if McCain chose Romney as his running mate, I would ABSOLUTELY NOT vote for him…I wouldn’t vote for the other ticket, either…I was at a loss to know exactly what I would do.

I like Mike Huckabee.  I am still mourning the fact that he is out of the race.  I felt strongly about his beliefs, even though I didn’t/don’t agree with everything….I agree with enough to know that I would have voted for him quickly and easily.

Well, now I am looking again at McCain….I am curious about Sara Palin.  I don’t know much about her, and am looking for more information about her.  One thing that speaks volumes to me, though, is her newest child, Trig.  He was born earlier this year with Down’s Syndrome, and she and her husband knew that Trig would have special challenges in his life, but they felt that he was a Gift from God!  Praise God that she has strong beliefs and convictions, and is willing to show them in her life.  That is only one example, and I am looking for more….I am intrigued by her and want to know more.

McCain/Palin….maybe they have my vote.

VP to be?

VP to be?

**edit**

Even with the release of the statement regarding Sara Palin’s daughter’s out of wedlock pregnancy, I still haven’t made up my mind voting for McCain/Palin.  I agree that it is against God’s Word that there is adultery in a relationship, but that said, we *are* all sinners.  I did not agree with Chaney’s daughter having an alternative lifestyle…, but there didn’t seem to be as much of an uproar over it.  What does that say about our acceptance of different sins?  It is easy to sit at a computer or in my home, and judge someone…, but I am not the ultimate judge.

    I’m angry that anyone would bring Palin’s children into the “political arena” as a means to tarnish McCain/Palin. John 8:7 says, in part, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” All I can add is, “AMEN!”

    I think the big difference here, is that this “alternative lifestyle” you mentioned is not a choice. Having sex out of wedlock is. But, I agree with you a 100%. We shouldn’t judge and quite frankly her family is none of our business. In all honesty, I think all of this makes her more of a “real” person and this is what families deal with every day. I think McCain made a wise choice by picking Palin. I would never vote for McCain… but I certainly can respect his decision!
