I find it hard to support war hero John McCain and his dud Vice Presidential candidate Palin. But Obama is no shining angel either. 100 prominent US economists get stuck into Obama's policies on tax and trade (a longer list is here):
'Barack Obama argues that his proposals to raise tax rates and halt international trade agreements would benefit the American economy. They would do nothing of the sort. Economic analysis and historical experience show that they would do the opposite. They would reduce economic growth and decrease the number of jobs in America. Moreover, with the credit crunch, the housing slump, and high energy prices weakening the U.S. economy, his proposals run a high risk of throwing the economy into a deep recession. It was exactly such misguided tax hikes and protectionism, enacted when the U.S. economy was weak in the early 1930s, that greatly increased the severity of the Great Depression'.
What a clown Obama is and McCain at least supports free trade. If I had the chance would I ever think about voting for McCain? Probably 'no'. Don't ask me to explain my reasons in detail. What a choice!
