Values?

This morning on CNN there was a fairly powerful commercial which aired supporting John McCain. It was targeted toward small business owners and “Mad Mike” told us that he wanted to expand his business but he wasn’t going to do that if Barack Obama became president because he didn’t want to be taxed more or have government intervention in his business practices. 

I’ll briefly bounce over the fact that I think anyone who would inhibit themselves from going forward with their business plan due to the possibility of higher taxes is just plain  . . . well, not Republican!

Anyhow, I go to the website of the organization that paid for that commercial: Consequences.org. No surprise here – they aren’t really concerned about the economy or taxes. Nope. They care if you vote based on the bible, abortion, and “your values”. 

When and how I lead my life in my home will be based on my moral values. How I vote ? Well, I plan to use my head to do that.

There are a number of things I like about the Republican party but I’m on the defensive until this moral-high road kick goes back where it belongs – in our homes, churches, and daily lives – NOT in the White House!

(And yes, I am well aware that if Clinton had kept his pants on while he was President, this morality kick wouldn’t have had so much “shebang” (pun) as it did initially. But is it not time to move on? A little bit? Please?)
