Shouldn't have voted for McCain

Much to my dismay, prophecy's predicted have come true and I find myself in a rare position of having to concede that my vote for John McCain was in error.

While I admit that I have plagiarized this piece, it is too actuate not to be shared with the general public.

"I have to admit it. My liberal friends were right. They told me if I voted for McCain, the nation's Hope would deteriorate, and sure enough, there has been a 20 point drop in the Consumer Confidence Index since the election, reaching a lower point than any time during the Bush administration.

They told me if I voted for McCain, the US would become more deeply embroiled in the Middle East and, sure enough, tens of thousands of additional troops are scheduled to be deployed into Afghanistan.

They told me if I voted for McCain, that the economy would get worse and, sure enough, unemployment is approaching 8.8% (10+% in some states) and the new stimulus packages implemented recently has sent the stock market lower than at any time since 1997.

They told me if I voted for McCain, we would see more "crooks" in high ranking positions in Federal government and, sure enough, several recent cabinet nominees and Senate appointments revealed resumes of bribery and tax fraud.

Well, I ignored my Democrat friends in November and voted for McCain. And they were right... all of their predictions have come true."
