Electing a President: Governing Philosophy

By Albert Mohler:

Politics often seems more about personalities than about ideas, but elections are always ultimately about ideas. The 2008 presidential election is no exception. Barack Obama and John McCain represent too very different political philosophies and visions of government.

Barack Obama and the Democratic Party see government as an engine for changing the society for the better. He proposes huge programs like universal preschool education--programs that will cost billions of new tax dollars. John McCain and the Republican Party see big government as more of a problem than a solution. There is a huge chasm between these two philosophies of government.

These candidates differ over the role of the individual versus the role of the government, the role of the judiciary and the role of the military. This is not a personality contest."
