This will be the first election that I feel the need to vote. I have stayed out of it the last two elections because I didn't feel educated enough about the issues to make a good choice.
If Hilary ran, I would listen to what her goals were and see if she explains HOW! That is the most important question that past politicians running have avoided. How are you going to improve education? HOW are you going to end the war in Iraq! HOW HOW HOW HOW HOW!
If no one can tell me how they plan to do something, they won't get my vote. "So, you want to eliminate the national debt? Great, how are you going to do it?"
It would be no surprise to hear that Hilary would want to raise taxes, but I think that would hurt the people more than anything. It is proven that when less taxes are taken out, the more money people have, therefore, the more money people spend and put into the economy.
After all that rambling, I'll say this: I don't care if the candidate is male, female, black, white, dem, repub, indep., I will vote for the person who I feel will address the issues that are important to me, and the person who will do it without damaging our ecomony.
I refuse to vote for a straight party, or just because the person is a woman (that would piss me off...to be voted for just because I'm a woman..what about my mind? my ideas?), or because the person is black.
