Do I want mush men or mavericks in the White House? by Deborah Myers

“Am I going to vote Democrat or Republican in the presidential race? Am I going to vote for Sarah Palin? I did indeed say Palin and not McCain. Why? McCain is more moderate and represents my views more so than Palin. But Palin is a woman and I am tired of watching women battle sexism year after year and see so little change. So I am inclined to vote for a woman because it gets a woman closer to the White House.” Click here to read the full opinion piece.

We invited Deborah Myers to publish this opinion as it’s part of a very important debate among voters in America and we knew the comments to the piece would be colorful. Myers is a former El Pasoan who attended UTEP and Austin High School and who stays in touch with local politics. She now lives in California with her family. Below are several excerpts of the comments available on NPT following Myers’ opinion piece.

For an indivisual to vote on a candidate based on gender, is not only narrow minded, but neglegent and arrogant. A careless move considering whats at stake and the pivotal point and issues that this nation is faced with. It’s your vote and that’s to be respected, but unfortunately you’ve entered the stage w/o meaning.

Sarah Palin got into political office because she claimed she was bored because her husband was out working. Her background is as a SPORTS newscaster.

This is depressing. American voters are such dolts. We will probably get another 4 years of the Bushies (Palin/McCain) and will continue to see our country go down the drain. Sad, sad, sad.
