WANT YOUR INHERITANCE? VOTE McCAIN

I have written many articles nipping at Republicans for completely failing to address federal social policies destroying marriage in America. McCain gave social conservatives the coldest of all shoulders in this regard.
However, his shortcomings pale in comparison to Obama. We have all heard that Obama’s best friends to this day are feminists, Marxists, white-haters, and revolution-for-the-hell-of-it bomb-slingers and constitutional anarchists. A fair amount of this is actually true in the present-day sense.
Sure we are mad at Bush for some things. Much of our anger should be directed at Congress – from whence legislation flows. The vast majority of insane federal social legislation was created by Democrats (while Republicans often avoided the issues).
We are very upset about the breakdown of our financial systems triggered by the home loan crisis. To this end, McCain deserves very high marks: he opposed loose loan legislation enacted by Democrats giving home loans to the poor, unemployed, and single mothers who simply cannot afford them.
these are all externals. They have little impact on responsible Americans
who work hard and do not live on credit.
We must look forward to titrate the future consequences of our vote. After a great deal of contemplation, it seems my vote boils down to one thing: my inheritance.
In 2010, the moratorium on the death tax is set to expire. Everyone with an inheritance, particularly if it is bigger than a breadbox, should vote for McCain.
Obama has lowered the bar several times in his speeches on taxation. He started out taxing folks that make more than $350,000. In just four weeks time, that amount has dropped to $120,000. It will quickly evaporate to include just about anyone over a poverty-level income.
That’s Obama’s theme – Marxist redistribution -- mob rule modeled on Chicago south-side Daley-machine ward scumbags who never worked a day in their lives (and on weekends hang out in holy-rolling white-hating welfare churches elevating personal irresponsibility into an excusable religion).
If McCain is President, we are far more likely to see the death tax moratorium extended or made permanent. I cannot envision McCain vetoing such legislation.
So, unless you want to throw away half your inheritance to irresponsible people who for years have had every choice and affirmation to change their lives but do not, vote for McCain.
And, if you want to preserve the inheritance intended for your children, so you can retire and still have something left to give them, vote McCain.

Obama claims that us hard-working Americans are selfish for not wanting to entitle sloth and personal irresponsibility. May I remind His Highness that the consequences for one’s slothful actions are not a punishment meted by those who chose to work and save.
Do not be distracted by the externals. Vote your pocketbook. While McCain leaves much to be desired, he's still the best choice.
