I'm against big government. I'm against almost all government that isn't necessary (military, police, legislature in the STRICTIST terms). The only reason I'm against anarchy (read: Self Rule) is because we need some structure in society. I believe that our taxes should go ONLY to those who serve us, and by that, I mean military, police, emergency personnel, and CORE legislation. I don't believe there should be lesser paid public positions. Does anyone know why congress has 2 large breaks in their schedule? It's so they can go home and plant, and so they can go home and harvest. Congress was originally a VOLUNTARY position, unpaid, done out of love for our country. Our president makes 1.6 million dollars over 4 years from just being the president, which is alright, but they don't pay for ANYTHING while in office... we do. And that's not counting kickbacks and lobbyist funds. I'm slaving at approximately $13 an hour after comission, 40+ hours a week, and then my ass is taxed off? That's theft. If I took 30% of someone's stuff, I would probably go to jail. The government does that YEARLY. And don't get me started on the draft... I respect our military people, and the job they do. You'll never hear me criticize their involvement in world events. I feel like the draft (which is dormant, but that's why you sign up for Selective Service when you're 18 ) is slavery. Signing up for something like that is in violation of the 13th amendment.
Obama wants government as big as he can get it so he can keep control of everything. This is why they want universal health care, they want to keep closer tabs on the people. This is why they want gun control, they want to disarm the people. This is why they want to point fingers about war, they want to take your eyes off the real issues.
McCain is no better... lots of religious republicans claim "He'll bring the country back to God" while ignoring that his wife owns the largest Budweiser distribution house in the eastern United States. He's nearly Democrat in a lot of his views, yet Democrats trash him, cause they want someone whose wife claims to not be proud of the country she lives in.
McCain scares me, as does Obama... I'm going to vote third party this year (I am personally voting for Bob Barr - Libertarian) and I know that I'm not gonna have a candidate who wins, hell, they might get 2% of the total vote, but I know that he believes what I believe, and then I can bitch for the next 4 years that my guy coulda done better.
