VOTE FOR THESE PEOPLE! . . . and for me in 2008.
UNITED STATES PRESIDENT: George W. Bush. No 'lesser of two evils' in my opinion. I wholeheartedly support Bush and agree with him on all issues I consider major.
UNITED STATES VICE PRESIDENT: Dick Cheney. I'm not quite as passionate about Cheney as I am about Bush, but he won me over in the VP debate. And it would be kinda silly to endorse Bush without endorsing Cheney, since it's a paired ballot.
UNITES STATES SENATOR FROM ILLINOIS: Don McArthur-Self. Although I endorsed Alan Keyes for President in '96 and I agree with him on most of the issues, this year's campaign has caused me to doubt Keyes's character. The carpet-bagging issue, the slave reparations, and multiple other things leave a bad taste in my mouth. McArthur-Self agrees with my positions on abortion, the war on terror, Iraq, and many other things, so my endorsement goes to him as an official write-in candidate.
UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE, ILLINOIS 2ND DISTRICT: Stephanie Kennedy Sailor. Unlike Bush vs Kerry, I believe that Kennedy vs Jackson is a lesser-of-two-evils style matchup. I don't agree with the Libertarian Party platform with respect to abortion, the war on terror, and many other things. But for one thing, I'm not sure whether Kennedy Sailor completely matches the platform, since her website does not details her platform on specific issues -- she is running completely on a small-government plank, which I agree with in theory. For another thing, I generally agree with the Libertarian Party more than I agree with the Democratic Party. Thing number three, I completely disagree with Jesse Jackson, Jr, on about every issue imaginable (although I would choose him over his father if forced). And thing number four and last, this is a binary decision -- the Republicans have failed to put up a candidate at all (paving the way for JOSH PERSONS 2008!), and there are no write-in candidates whatsoever.
