Just recently a friend told me about this group-Indians for McCain.Since there are very few Indian Republicans in the US,I was wondering what brought us together.
They had a neat comparison chart on their website.Interestingly enough they have very strong, solid points.
Two main points I want to bring up here is :
Obama wants to raise taxes on any business you do with India.
McCain endorses the US-India Civil Nuclear Deal .Obama has remained silent on that issue
I also learnt something new. McCain and his wife have been to India many times.
The average Indian living here and who has registered to vote is a Democrat and no one knows why they are a Democrat.All they can come up with is that Republicans favor rich ,white people tax wise.
I wish I belonged to an Indian organisation just so that I could show them which presidential nominee stands for what and educate a fellow Indian.
But in the meantime I do spread the word back home as my family thinks that McCain is bad and Obama is good! The general concept there is that Americans are racist and would not let a Black man win!
This post would not be complete without mentioning Joe Bidens racist comment "You cannot go into a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.""I am not joking."
And on the other hand Sarah Palin appointed an Indian,Anand Dubey as Director of Information Technology
