In the presidential my own state (Louisiana) supported John McCain. I have very high regard for Senator McCain for his military service, for his courage as a POW in Hanoi, and for some of his actions in the U.S. Senate, especially is position own earmarks.

However, when I entered the poll both I did not vote for Senator McCain. Instead I followed my conscience and voted for Congressman Ron Paul. I knew that he did not have a chance to win any state, my own included, but I agree with him on most issues.

I do disagree with Paul on Iran. I think he was correct on the invasion of Iraq - we did not have a lawful reason to go to war with Iraq. But after the invasion I believe that we have a duty to finish what we started. To have pulled out Iraq and leave them in chaos would have been immoral and brought about more bloodshed.

The main point that I disagree Senator McCain on is I find him to ready to go military. I disagreed with him on our taking the lead in the Balkans and on the invasion of Iraq.

I do believe that McCain was a better choice than Obama. McCain is a true American hero and I wish him all the best. He is a great American, but I voted for the paleo-con/libertarian because I that is where I am in my own political philosophy. I am a Christian libertarian/ paleo-conservative.

Coram Deo,
