Although I am a registered independent, I vote with the right more than most republicans. I could not bring myself to vote for McCain. He lost me in the 2nd debate when he said he was going to buy up all the bad loans & readjust the principle so that people who are not making mortgage payments can stay in their homes. What about the people making payments, on a house that is not worth what they paid for it. They get nothing? I made a protest vote for Bob Barr on election day because I could not support John McCain. I see a tough road ahead for the republicans. I don't know how the republicans can gain votes for the next election. With the liberal agenda ahead, I can see felons, illegals and new immigrints. voting for the democrats in 2012. Also the 14+ kids will be eligible to vote in 2012. They seem to really like the democrat koolaid. The future looks bleak for the GOP.
