Why I'm Voting For Obama

This should really be titled... Why I'm NOT Voting For McCain. I'm going to start this series off with a funny little story about John McCain's environmentally unfriendly views. He thinks that it should be up to each state whether or not to drill off the coasts for oil. Not that an offshore oil platform isn't the first thing I want to see when I gaze out into the ocean... But he's basically stating that we need to feed our country's oil addiction. McCain comes from an age that doesn't learn well from the past. He needs to be more concerned about oil company lobbyists knocking on his front door and the fact that even if you do start working with them or even against them... maybe even get the gas prices down a buck or two... they still have our country by the balls. The solution is not to open up offshore drilling platforms to increase our supply of oil... or force OPEC to increase production that has been reduced to a drip... It's to encourage and promote the use of hybrids with 45+ mpgs, invest in new technologies that are not oil/gas based, and a whole slew of solutions that I am sure there is a lobby group out there trying to push their way into Washington.
