I thought I would voice my opinion on the upcoming election.......I still don't know.
I really am so confused. I see good in both and yet I still have my doubts in both.
Reading all that the media puts out and then listening to them just really makes my brain swell.
I do know one thing.....I'm NO fan of Sarah Palin at all. SHE is the biggest reason for me not wanting to see McCain in the big house.
Am I alone on the confusion? Does everyone else seem to know exactly who they are voting for and why?
Palin's criticized other politicians for shady business, some good house cleaning has revealed a few skeletons in her own closet.
She's taken trips on the city's tab, utilized office resources to fundraise, accepted money without disclosing it, and in an upsetting abuse of power, pressured the state public safety commissioner to fire her sister's state trooper ex-husband.
The ex-husband was never fired, but the commissioner was.
Democratic state Representative Beth Kerttula admitted that she's frightened of Palin because "It's all about the power" and "She doesn't seem to know where the boundaries are."
Palin has actually done a little ethical straightening up in office, by tightening up state ethics laws, providing more information to taxpayers about state spending, restrictions on lobbyists' giving, increased disclosure requirements for public officials, and posting state spending details on the Internet.
-Although she's criticized other politicians for giving companies too much government control, she appointed the founder of an engineering firm to head of transportation
-She's helped friends and contributors land state jobs
-She's accused of misusing office resources to campaign against a voter referendum for tighter mining regulations, while her husband Todd, accepted a free trip from a mining company to view new site proposals
Democratic state Representative Mike Doogan said her flighty ethics are "insulting to those of us who have always done the right thing.
