Here’s The Scoop…Counting Down to 11/4/08…6:30 pm…My Decision Has Been Made?

It’s Almost Over….

Forget the early voting…this writer is not a fan…more of a traditionalist that comes with a comfort level from following past voting practices… wanting all the information until the final day….not wanting to encounter “buyers” remorse….that comes with a life altering “no return” policy once that bubble is inked and the ” I Voted” sticker is stuck on my lapel….

In these last 4 days…if there was such a return policy….how long would those lines be…in light of the sudden “conscience” some of the “assist” media outlets are only now feeling “comfortable” in printing… actual articles calling out Obama on his plans…his promises….at this late date……now that they feel the fix is in…pronouncing Obama’s big win a forgone conclusion……thinking this sudden show of real journalistic questioning will buy them cover for their long-term bias after Nov. 4th….if anyone dares to call them on it….that is…

Could we be so lucky for the L A Times to join these slew of “conscious” journalists in the remaining days…the Washington Post…CBS News……etc….with a tape or a transcript of Obama’s questionable attendance with Bill Ayers and Khalidi…that if truly explosive….would make that return line …if there were one for many early voters….mimic the doors opening at Harrods famous annual stampede sale?…

The Conspiracy theorists among us…could have had a field day with the hi-jinks…the timing of what has been going on around these parts…in these last few count- down …single- digit days….no cable…no computer…no Comcast…and then only CNN…2 days running…on and off…. on CNN…it was Obama T.V…….Obama ads…Obama in split screen…in 4 screens…Obama…blue nation….Obama…Obama….Obama…

Remember subliminal advertising at drive-ins……pushing popcorn and a coke…while waiting for the scary George Orwell movie…. “CHANGE”……”OBAMA”….HMMMM…..

So as of today….at this hour….this writer is voting for McCain….and unless you are now hitting the bookmarks to move on to your next favorite’s site….let me tell you why….

Because whether it is local or state or national…as an independent voter…an independent thinker…I look for the same content in each candidate……their character…their openness…….their track record…and how they run their campaign…the candidate…not those hovering around them…(see the Sausage series to see why the candidate cannot be judged by those within their campaign group)….

I want the candidate to come with a willingness to work with both sides…old and new…to be fiscally responsible…to let independents…be independent…less government… not more… to be fair…to do better …fulfilling their promises…same as what I wanted for LBTS…last January…

I truly believe McCain will do that…because he already has…he produced anything that he was asked to..he has the track record of working across the aisle…he has the backbone and the drive to make the right decisions…the hard and unpopular decisions….he pays the women on his staff the same or more…and he is so close…in these last days…to his opponent…no matter what the “pollsters” say… the “in his back pocket” massive media assist to Obama…from day one…..and the incredible amount of money he is up against…because he chose to stick with the federal funds….due to his own principles…and keeping the promise his opponent did not…and it is a given…. he will return to his center…..after the election…

Barack Obama…on the other hand….certainly is “change”…a “chameleon” kind of change…that takes on whatever is advantageous to him at the time…it’s his history…his personality… purposely …methodically kept off the front pages on the news…a lucky guy…you bet…a guy who seems to have the sun and moon align…more often than seems humanly possible…in terms of his success…from entry into Ivy league schools ……Law Review Editorial posts…million dollar book deals…shady real estate deals…prestigious law firms… professorships…being in the right place at the right time meeting politically connected insiders…who craftily formed the rung by rung….ladder to his ascent…he has an ability to compartmentalize the likes of Bill Clinton…able to feel the sunshine on his face while fully aware of the down and dirty work done behind the scenes on his behalf…working in nefarious ways to keep that sunbeam squarely aimed on him…keep him outfitted in a Teflon coat of armor …all so swift…all so calculated….all so suppressive… all so easy…all so unsettling…

He pays his women staffers less than the men…..he will certainly move to back the left….he is for a Palestinian State….he is for government demanded “volunteers”…a civilian “army” that rivals the one we have…he is for “spreading the wealth”..”fairness”…”building from the bottom up”…no more “code” required……he has gone back on most of his “promises”….the biggest being the financing of his campaign… amassing a truly massive amount of money…

Those who are behind him now…calling all the shots…shaping his rhetoric…writing his platform…are not the same backers as before the general election..or before the primary…..who will be the next front and center group shaping his policy…his rhetoric …..after his January swearing in…….if this pattern of “change” is the same?….

No paper trail …no college admittance paperwork…no standardized scores…no grades…no Law Review articles…no medical report…no voting record…no experience…no reason to think.. the answers will come…before Nov. 4,2008…at 6:30 pm….

So barring any major revelations…pro or con….coming out before half past the 6 pm hour….I’ll be voting for McCain….

more to come….
