Every morning when I get to campus, I find an Alligator newspaper and thumb through it. I am never surprised to find this liberally biased newspaper having some type of derogatory editorial referencing Sen. John McCain, Gov. Sarah Palin or the Republican Party.

The liberal Democrats have begun to find more importance in a comparison between Sen. Barack Obama and Palin.

I am certain that Palin is not running for president of the United States.

Obama's followers need to realize this is only hurting their campaign.

It shows how weak their candidate is in comparison to McCain.

Palin has an extensive record of success in Alaska, much of which Conservatives find to be important.

Everything she has done is exceptional and outstanding, but she's not running for president.

A great aspect of this country is that we all have the ability to campaign for our candidates and cast our vote without any fear of repercussions.

This can be attributed to our fine military men and women throughout the history of this country.

I am not focusing on Iraq or Afghanistan - I'm talking about every military action in our country's history.

Taking the time to look at voting records will show you the candidate who is focused on keeping this country safe, which is the keystone to all other federal policies.

McCain has always voted to properly fund our country's military.

Obama has ignored his job in the Senate.

Obama did not find it important to vote on a bill that would continue funding our forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

If you don't agree with the war, that's fine. However, if you have a family member overseas, don't you want him or her to be able to access the proper ammunition to protect her life or to have enough armor on vehicles to deflect a bullet?

Regardless of your stance on the war itself, you don't want to sacrifice American lives for that cause.

Your social or economic views may be something completely different than mine, and that's fine because that's what the U.S. is all about.

However, it is insane for someone writing an editorial to demand that I change my personal values.

I want a president who follows the values of the U.S. Constitution.

I want a president who will stand and salute the flag of this great nation.

I vote Republican because it is what is best for our country.

I believe in Republicans because I am pro-life.

I believe in smaller government.

I am voting for John McCain because I don't want someone to limit my right to bear arms.

I will vote Republican because I want "one nation under God" to stay in the Pledge of Allegiance.

I am a Republican because I believe in personal accountability.
