I like this post about the presidential candidates and their running mates.
Growing up I was a Democrat because my parents are Democrats. But I think that the older I get the more I like the idea of limited power for the federal government which, correct me if I'm wrong, is a typical Republican belief. This was something I realized while watching the HBO documentary John Adams (which was very good and you should rent it!). As Mr. Adams and Mr. Jefferson were arguing I noticed that I sided with good ole Tom a lot more.
It also doesn't hurt that Republicans vote against abortion. I don't know if I can say they're pro-life, though. To me, pro-life means you believe in the dignity of every human life: unborn babies, convicted felons, immigrants, the poor, etc.
Lately, I've been spending time here: http://www.barackobama.com/issues/

Honestly, I consider myself an Independent, because both sides have goodness in them. But I didn't even vote for Obama to be my senator, why would I want him to be my president? I like some of the things he has to say. I like more of the things McCain has to say. And I don't like Biden at all. But I love Palin.
