Super Tuesday

Today is Super Tuesday. It's basically the day that should decide who the presidential candidates will be. It's been pretty interesting to see some of the debates and to hear what each candidate's strengths and weaknesses are. There are some other issues on the ballot as well. Most of them have to do with Indian gaming and casinos. It's funny because every election I get things in the mail from different organizations that tell me how to vote on each issue. Something like, Arnold says to vote yes on 94, 95, 96, 97. Or, the organization of firefighters say vote yes on blah, blah, blah. I pretty much don't even look at that stuff. It kind of makes me sad to think that some people vote exactly how an organization, or a particular party tells them to vote. I'm a registered Republican, and I have been since high school. But an interesting thing is happening. Today I'm not so sure I would register as a Republican at all. I'm much more of a moderate these days. In fact I looked at the mailer that told me how the republican party wants me to vote and realized that on every issue except for one I was voting the opposite of what they told me. I do like John McCain. But Obama is pretty stinking captivating. I could support a guy like that too. I don't know where he stands on every policy, but the one that seriously disturbs me is his views on abortion. I wonder though if he will even have a chance to make any decisions about abortion. I mean it doesn't look like there are any supreme court judges to appoint, and I don't think Roe v. Wade is going to be overturned anytime soon. But McCain is the guy I probably more stand in line with politically. At least at this point, because I'm sure as only two candidates emerge we will learn more about each one. Romney could totally demolish McCain today though and then I guess I don't know what will happen at that point. At any rate, I need to get over and vote today.
