When I breing up stances on issues, they walk away mumbling, thus admitting defeat, and that they don't have a fucking clue as to what they are talking about.
Montana voted McCain, only know a handful that voted for Obama here.

No one asked me but since you're curious.
I didn't vote for Obama, I wanted him to win. Here are the reaons i've heard along with the reasons I would have voted for him.
-Pro-choice. This is me personally. I would never vote for someone against abortion, ever. The planet is in no danger of being under populated, and we have more kids in orphanges that nobody wants than I care to think about.
-McCain resembled Bush way too much. The economy is in the shitter, we need someone to bring it out. Sending more troops to more countries to fight is not the answer. For the war in Afghanistan, not the war in Iraq. Why are we dieing for a bunch of ungrateful people in Iraq? Because like his dad, Bush is an oil tycoon who saw a chance to get more dollars in his pocket. Our freedom is not at state with Iraq. It's sad to see family members and other's family members risking their lives because some people see green. Then they use the flag and patriotism to convince us that sending our boys to die is in the name of freedom. I'm sorry, but the principal weapon of terrorist isn't oil.
-I do not make over 250K a year. I want my taxes to decrease. Why should the middle class have to pay for everything? Wanting to make a 6 figure income and making a 6 figure income are 2 different things. McCain has never held a job in the private sector. I love his military record as much as any veteran, but the guy married into money and lost touch with the common man accepting more than $2 million from the oil and gas industry, more than half of that since he changed his position on offshore drilling.
-The environment. Not a tree hugger by any stretch, I love the city, but lets not destroy whats left of the country to make more money. Lets not shit on what we have left.
-Mccain was against fuel efficiency. Of course, there is money to be made off oil, why would we want to have vehicles that are fuel efficient? Obama wants to double the efficiency of our vehicles.
-Mccain is pro-open borders. McCain-Kennedy reform. We have a serious immigration problem in this country and he actually wanted to pass that?
-Obama has an energy plan that will provide as many as 5,000,000 jobs and end our dependency on foreign oil.
-McCain's health. Palin as President, no fucking way.
-healthcare. I remember when healthcare through my job was reasonable. It's been steadily going up every year. I can't speak for most of you, but due to alot of health problems, I've had to use my insurance quite a bit, it would be nice if I could get this monthly payment down.
-I agree with Obama's stance to increase focus on Pakistan and Afghanistan, the real war on terror.
-Not sure how true this is, but I heard that McCain wanted to attack Iran during his first 100 days of office. Thats what we need, start another fight before we finish the other one. Thats gotta be good for the economy right?
-McCain voted with Bush 95% of the time.
That good for you Hass?
