Republican Women Say NO - Part 1

No way will I vote for the McCain Palin ticket. My mother is a life-long Republican who supported Hillary—Just the kind of woman the Republicans were targeting when they chose Palin. She was insulted that they would resort to such a ploy- Palin does not stand for anything my mom believes in. As for my Dad, he served in Congress with McCain and had one run-in with McCain's famous expletive-laced temper and so my dad will probably sit out the election rather than vote for either candidate. My point is that both my parents, loyal Republicans and in the case of my dad—a former politician who was very loyal to his party—are both against McCain and Palin. All I can say is I am glad my parents have finally seen the light!

I am very worried about the McCain ticket. I was not so worried until he selected Palin. I consider myself a moderate Republican, about to become once again an Independent. Sarah Palin scares me! I can only think that McCain was pandering to the far right of his party. That's a group I wish not to be affiliated with.

Putting a woman such as Sarah Palin on the ticket as the VP nominee is a slap in the face to women everywhere, and especially to the many other quite capable and much more qualified Republican women out there. She does not represent the women I know. It is women like her who have made things so difficult for the rest of us. I believe it was Gloria Steinhem who said Palin was a younger version of Phyllis Schaffley and boy was she right!!

I will NOT vote Republican for president and neither should any other woman! Sara Palin does NOt represent women's needs.
