Why I am voting for Obama

Saturday, October 27, 2012

Don't hate me--- or fine-- hate me-- but I am still voting that way.

Personally, my ethics and believes about a lot of social issues lean right.  But these are my beliefs.  They are right for me.  Not for everyone.  One of the most important things I believe in is the absolute separation of church and state. No one, can or should, attempt to legislate morality. 

It would be great if government did not have to step in and provide help to people less fortunate.

Yes, we support charities. 

A lot of charities only provide assistance to people of a certain demographic.  A lot of people do not live in an area where there is aid readily available.  So until there is enough charitable aid available for everyone who needs it- the government as a whole needs to fill in.

Social justice.

Freedom of and from religion.  We are not a Christian Nation and more than we are a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation.  We are a nation of diversity, and that is a good thing.

Just wanted to chime in and say you're so right - a lot of people in need don't have easy access to the help they need. Many people aren't aware of that so I'm glad you mentioned it.

Found your blog on SITS! Love having a way to find great new blogs all the time. :) Good for you for sharing this post. Haven't quite decided if I want to post about who I'm voting for, knowing that my closest family are in disagreement with me.
