As the recent Gallop Poll results show, Obama and McCain are in a statistical dead-heat for U.S. President. But, as we all know, the popular vote doesn't matter....it's the Electoral College votes that will be the final determination. If McCain holds on to the same states Bush carried in 2004, he'll squeeze through. One or two states will make all the difference.
It's not surprising that the two are so close....there isn't 2 cents' difference between them. Both are Big Government advocates. Both will increase taxes and expand the size of the Federal government.
Until the people decide that they've had enough and demand real changes the problem will only get worse.We desperately need to decrease the size and influence of government and cut taxes.
As long as we pick candidates like McCain and Obama, it will continue to be business as usual.
