I have also noticed that a lot of people despise certain candidates during the campaigns and push the notion that they are wrong about everything. Going into this presidential election, I was a big fan of John McCain. However, I was disappointed and insulted when he chose Sarah Palin as his running mate. While Palin is a candidate that I doubt I could ever cast a ballot for, she does have some good aspects:
- She spoke out about the financial bailout and stated that the government should not reward bad decisions.
- She favors reducing small business taxes.
- Absolute gun rights.
What I am wondering is if anyone else disagrees with their party or candidate of choice on certain issues? If so, what are they? Also, if you despised a candidate this election, what do you agree with them on?
I am asking these questions because I have the perception that the country is strictly divided at the moment due the dogmatic political beliefs of many citizens.
