Still Undecided...*added some more thoughts*

*This will probably be my only political post ever.*
How is this supposed to help me decide??
What am I going to do today?
I know so many moms that are for Obama and so many moms that are for McCain. I say moms, because that is who I am, and we are all in the same boat. They are all are passionate and have strong reasons why they want one over the other.
Personally, I am afraid of both sides. I feel this is another 'lesser of the two evils' election. This is a very hard decision that I probably won't share with you later. I am not one to start a political argument or talk politics much at all. I just can't stand the mud slinging and lies going around on both sides. I can't stand that people are voting for Obama because he is black or people that are not voting for him because he is black. And people are voting for McCain because he has a woman VP or not voting for him because of who she is. And many other things like that. I don't have a good idea of what the real issues are because they are too busy defending themselves all the time. ugh.
Part of me believes that it really doesn't matter who is the president. That he is just a figure head and the people with all the money really run the country the way they want it anyway. I have explored this website and it really scares the hell out of me. The videos are so intense and the ideas that are out there for the future of this country - no matter who the president is - are truly frightening.
If someone has a totally UN biased web site that I can see where they each canidate stand on issues and has FACTS about their past please post them! Or post who you are voting for and why...just on one issue that means a lot to you and made your decision.
This was a silly little quiz was just for fun to see if it could help at all. It didn't.
But I WILL vote. Because that is my duty...I just don't know who.

Your Issue Profile: 56% Obama, 44% McCain
Truth be told, you're not really satisfied with either of the candidates.
You could vote for either of them. You are the typical coveted swing voter.

You may want to narrow yourself down to a particular set of issues in order to pick your president.
Or start looking at third party candidates. One of them might suit you better.

Should You Vote for Obama or McCain?
Please leave nice comments or don't comment at all. I don't want this to become a political argument...just my crazy confused thoughts to words. Thanks! :) We'll be voting sometime after lunch after I pick up the Kid from school. We always take him to vote.
**I wrote this yesterday. Edited early this morning to add some more thoughts**

sounds like what i wrote too. my decision will sadly be made when I'm in the booth. This election seems too extreme on either side. So much for a democracy.

I voted and and I feel confident in my choice, but each person has to make up their own mind.
I never judge on who people vote for just pray that the next president can get the country back into shape.
I do agree all the mud slinging ads are crazy, so glad they will be over.

I hope you did make up your mind and vote either way....I did my research on my candidate early. Printed out reams of paper on their stands on the issues and made my decision.

I'm thrilled to say that every single person I voted for on all levels won.
