Orson Scott Card Endorses McCain

Any of you ladies who have undecided husbands or sci-fi lovers in your life, please share this endorsement with them. Card is, pardon the obvious pun, a card-carrying Democrat who recently wrote a piece explaining why the media should, on November 5, write 100 times: 'I Will Not Ignore The Facts. I Will Not Ignore The Facts. I Will Not Ignore The Facts....'

Of all the McCain articles I've read - and there must be thousands - this is among the best. His endorsement of McCain hits several nails on the head.

Why you shouldn't snub McCain because you disliked Bush: "Why, if you thought Bush was inept, would you install as Commander-in-Chief a man whose ignorance of world affairs and military strategy make Bush look like a genius?"

Why McCain's Economic stance is the right one for these times: "McCain is no expert on the economy. But he's proven that he knows how to listen to the people who do understand it. And he thinks that wealth is created by people who work and think and learn and save. Share with the needy? Sure. But prosperity comes from leaving as much money as possible in the productive economy -- not from removing the rewards of achievement."

Why McCain's principles are real, right and sorely needed in The White House: "John McCain is what he seems to be. When he changes his mind or his policies, he admits it. He believes that America is an influence for good in the world. He doesn't follow the party line -- Republicans may hate some of the things he's done, but nobody has ever been able to claim he did them for any reason but his own conscience."

Why McCain's America is a better one: "In McCain's America, you can have confidence that you know the guy in the Oval Office, and he actually pays attention to what you believe in and care about."

Please share this with undecided voters you know!!

I don't know Mr. Card or his work, but he is certainly a clear thinker. Keep up the good work, tigrefan98!
