I know that this topic will have absolutely nothing to do with naturism, but I've got to discuss it anyway.

There are many reasons to not vote for McCain in November, and this one is just insane: he wants to kick Russia out of the G-8 and risk re-starting Cold War hostilities.

If you're unfamiliar with the G-8, it's an informal alliance of the world's economic powers. The US and Russia are members, along with Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the UK.

First off, hasn't the Bush administration taught us that aggressive foreign policies don't work without diplomacy? Secondly, to my understanding, the G-8 rules preclude the unilateral expulsion of any of its members - all members would have to come to an unanimous decision to do so (translation: even Russia would have to vote itself out).

Lastly, there's also the issue of a certain space station that's under construction and has been orbiting our planet for the past 10 years. Of the ten modules that presently constitute the International Space Station, 3 are Russian with another couple of modules scheduled to join them. Oh, and Russian Soyuz vehicles are used in crew rotations.

Yet another reason why McCain cannot become the 44th President of the United States.

You're right, of the MANY reasons not to vote for him, that is a very good one indeed.
