Sign the petition -- Sarah Palin: Please Resign.

Come, come, my conservative friend, wipe the dew off your spectacles, and see that the world is moving."

Republican Women Say NO - Part 2

McCain's choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate is insulting to women and a reckless choice. Though a Republican, I cannot support this choice and look forward to voting for Obama in November.

I agree there should be no McCain/Palin for our country. I have been a lifelong Republican since the days of Kennedy and Nixon but this year McCain was nominated, and then he picked Palin—it's beyond belief! I do not like him at all, as I remember when he was involved in the "Keating Five," which is the reason he went after Campaign Finance Reform. I just can't believe he is still a senator... McCain knew he could not win on experience so he chose Palin as an agent of change—and change she is. A big change for the worst if they get in. She will bring this country down more than it already is. Her belief in the issues are too extreme for me. I pray they do not get in.

I am a 72-year-old woman who has been a Republican for most of my life. I find the choice of Sarah Palin to be Vice President the most upsetting. I was thinking of voting for Obama, now I am for sure.

As a registered Republican, I cannot even think about voting for a woman like Sarah Palin on the ballot. We are just one heart attack from this far-right person who does not believe in separation of church and state. The US was founded on freedom of religion and speech. Not a gun-toting person who says she believes in censorship.
-L. F., Portland, OR

I am a registered Republican but will vote Democrat for Obams and Biden. Please note, I am not in favor of Sarah Palin for Vice President or any other US Office. She is a scary person with absolutely no smarts about our world and foreign affairs ... it makes my head spin that McCain would subject this woman to the public for elected office. I do not believe that McCain will be able to complete a term, if elected, and the result of having Sarah Palin for President is appalling and very, very scary. I was not in support of Hillary but at this time she looks like one of the most intelligent persons available to do a good job.
-Carol C., San Diego and Ensenada, CA

I am a 62-year-old woman, a former republican (now an independent - thanks to GWB), a mother, wife of over 40 years, a non-religious Christian (yes, there is such a thing because religion seems to have very little to do with true Christ-like behavior), a career woman yada-yada. The fact that Sarah Palin could be a heartbeat away from being President of the USA is terrifying. She is the antithisis of who I believe should be in the White House. Her views on energy, choice, the environment alone show her remarkable lack understanding. I haven't heard her utter one intelligent word on the economy. She is a disaster. Shame on McCain!
