So the seriousness of the coming election has been brought to my attention a few times with emails and such getting both sides of the campaign. And I've read a few of some friends blogs giving really good information on how to choose the best candidate. One of them was the saying you shouldn't vote for someone because of just one or two issues you should look at what they are going to do for the economy, health care, education, taxes, the war. But I didn't agree that you should leave out the moral issues that ensues the race leaving that to the states to decide. Same Sex Marriage, and abortion are things that I think are very important in choosing the next leader of our country.
I've read John McCain's website on the issues at hand and I've also been to Barack Obamas website and read about the same issues. Some of them make it sound like Barack will have the best Idea and others McCain. But I just got an email that I have verified some information on that made me think twice about the good things that Barack may have in store.
This was taken from a speech Obama gave at a town hall meeting in Johnstown, Pennsylvania
"When it comes specifically to HIV/AIDS, the most important prevention is education, which should include -- which should include abstinence education and teaching the children -- teaching children, you know, that sex is not something casual. But it should also include -- it should also include other, you know, information about contraception because, look, I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby. I don't want them punished with an STD at the age of 16. You know, so it doesn't make sense to not give them information." http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/348569.aspx
I put in the bold words. Having a baby of my own this really affected how I think about this man. A baby is not a punishment they are a gift from God.
What made me look into this was a youtube video that I was sent. I won't put it on here because I can't verify all the facts in it but from what I saw about Infantici Abortions, well it made me sick. Anyone that could let a baby who had survived an abortion should have a chance to live. They are left in the trash to die. Some even up to 8 hours after birth before they are dead. They are even given birth certificates and death certificates. It may not be the best thing for this country for people to be a one issue voter but in this case anyone that doesn't value human life should not be running our country! That would leave him his own will to do what he pleases with us no matter the consequence.
If you want me to send the video just ask. I won't be sending this one out but if you would like to see it just leave me a comment and I'll email it to you.
I hope for our humanity that the right person in elected this November!
