Why I'm voting Obama

Why I, as a friend of the environment and a bermed home owning, blackberry gathering, educator, will not vote for any ticket with a member like Sarah Palin.
Because she:
  • supported the Alaska Department of Fish and Game policy allowing Alaska state biologists to hunt wolves from helicopters
  • disagrees with strengthening the protection status of the beluga whales in Cook Inlet, Alaska
  • objects to the listing of polar bears amid fears that it would hurt oil and gas development in the bears' habitat off Alaska's northern and northwestern coasts
  • ran on a "build the bridge" (to nowhere) and kept the money when finally cancelling it
  • does not support the right to choose
  • does not have enough experience to lead the country and would be sitting behind the oldest president in history
  • does not attribute man in any way with climate change
  • supports ruination of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
  • has absolutely no foreign experiences
  • tends to be too militaristic and does not have any diplomacy
  • gets her health insurance through government, but opposes helping more than 45 million uninsured Americans get affordable health care
  • wants to control what our kids learn in school about sex and about science - actually want to have more control over what our kids learn than any other time in history.
  • does not believe in spousal benefits for same-sex couples
  • believes that schools should teach creationism and intelligent design

Why wouldn't I support McCain / Palin - because they are NOT the right choice for this country.
