Lust for power over others has become institutionalized. As the few get ever richer, millions are reduced to a level of poverty which is unbelievable in such a wealthy country. Some 13 million children in the United States go hungry every night. I will be voting for McCain this November. But if he doesn't help working families and the poor, I will never vote Republican again. I won't vote for a pro-abortion Democrat. But neither will I help the Republican Party again or vote for one of its candidates.
