McCain wasn't "my" candidate. My candidate didn't make it past the primaries. But he was the lesser of what I saw as two very bad choices.
I don't follow anyone blindly (neither people nor parties). I keep my eyes wide open. Based on Obama's stated position on any number of topics, from mandatory national service to revision and limitation of constitutional rights and redistribution of wealth and power, I feel there's little positive that he brings to the table. He may surprise me, but I doubt it.
My only hope is that the 42 % of the population that didn't vote for Obama will remember their stance on the issues and stay in close touch with their elected representatives. By doing everything we can to make sure our elected representatives really understand how we feel on the issues, we may make it through the next 4 years with some semblance of retaining our status as a free nation.
