Vote For A Better Life?

Perhaps I'm in a nitpicky mood today but I think I'll pick on the closing line in the new McCain ad that Matt posted earlier.

"Don't hope for a better life, vote for one."
With all due respect.  I'll vote for honor, leadership, courage in a president and protection from terrorism and crime but "a better life" is up to me.   That's a key difference between socialism, tyranny, and freedom.

Ok, I'll admit that maybe "Don't hope for a better life, put down the bong and work hard for one" is a bit too much straight talk for the young Obama supporter the ad is probably targeting.
