If you're undecided, what you should really be basing your vote on is how you feel on the issues and how your feelings match up to the candidates. For example:
- given what happened to the market this week, are you glad our social security isn't tied up in the market? If so, vote Obama who is against privatizing SS. If not, vote McCain who was for Bush's plan and still is.
- given the fact that deregulation was a huge factor in the market's collapse this week, do you want someone who is against regulation? Then vote McCain. Want common sense regulation? Vote Obama.
- do you feel that women who are raped and girls who are victims of incest who become pregnant during the crime should be further punished by being forced to bring this pregnancy to term? If so, vote McCain/Palin. If not, vote Obama.
- do you feel that there is a certain amount of common sense gun control that belongs in place, like keeping "cop killer bullets" off the streets? Then vote Obama. If you believe there should be no weapons restrictions at all, vote McCain/Palin.
I could go on and on, but there are huge differences between the candidates and their stances. So, if you really are undecided, take a deep look at the issues you care about and do research (i.e. not talk radio, but reading) and you'll be able to figure out who you match up with best.
