Vote for McCain? Never!

Just participated in a poll on whether I would vote for John McCain.

BTW, I highly recommend the Andrew Napolitano speech on YouTube linked below.

I never voted for George W. Bush, I didn't buy his "compassionate conservatism". I will not under any circumstances vote for John McCain. He is far more liberal than Bush on almost all issues.

Start with the Constitution.

First Amendment, McCain/Feingold was one of the most egregious violations of the Constitution in the last 20 years. In any other universe than this one, a member of Congress who writes a law, in fact champions to this day a law, which attempted to supersede the words, "Congress shall make no law" , would be impeached. Period, end of story. The man is an enemy of the Constitution.

Second Amendment, John McCain along with Joe Lieberman introduced a bill, S.890, in 2001, which would have outlawed the private sale of firearms and strictly limited the ability of gun owners to buy guns and gun accessories at gun shows. He receives an F- rating from Gun Owners of America.

Fourth Amendment, John McCain voted for the Patriot Act. See this YouTube speech by Andrew Napolitano. This is a fascinating lecture on the erosion of our civil liberties. If you are really interested you should find all 4 parts of the lecture. This is just part of the lecture.

Fifth Amendment, John McCain is not pro-life, read this statement from August "1999, which he repeated on more than one occasion as recorded by a liberal web-magazine, Slate. He would allow abortion to continue unchecked, I quote, "I'd love to see a point where Roe v. Wade is irrelevant, and could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary. But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade, which would then force women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations." John McCain is in favor of depriving the right to life from the unborn by never repealing Roe vs. Wade.

Fourteenth Amendment, John McCain does not understanding the meaning of the words, "subject to the jurisdiction thereof", so he considers all babies born on US soil to be citizens even though that is directly opposed to what the author of the original wording of the 14th Amendment had to say about it. Quote Jacob Howard "Absence of owing any allegiance to any other foreign power, which in return allows the United States to exercise full and complete jurisdiction over the person." and Senator Lyman Trumbull quote "“It is only those persons who come completely within our jurisdiction, who are subject to our laws, that we think of making citizens…" birthright citizenship for illegal aliens is a direct violation of the original intent of the Fourteenth Amendment and John McCain supports birthright citizenship.

Sixteenth Amendment, John McCain does not understand that the "first fruits" of a mans labor do not belong to the government but to the person who earned the money. One can make a Biblical case that God is entitled to the "first fruits" but never is the government entitled to them. Senator McCain does not support the repeal of the 16th Amendment, which is an immoral taking of the property of the private citizen.

Senator McCain has stated in previous campaigns that he has no personal problem with women in the military. I personally find that indefensible.
He has also stated that he would not support a return to the former policy of excluding all homosexuals from the military.

He does not support giving the oil companies the freedom to drill where ever it is economically viable including ANWAR , and off the western and southeastern coasts. Therefore he would rather fight a war in the middle east than pump our own oil here at home.

John (Al Gore) McCain is a supporter of the global warming hoax.

John McCain says that he would keep troops stationed in Iraq for 100 years. How many generations is that? Your children"s grandchildren will still be there?

I could go on. It won't do any good. Too many of you are lacking in principle. You claim to love this nation and the freedoms we enjoy. You claim that our rights come for God. Yet you do not have the backbone to stand in opposition to a man like John McCain who would willfully, with malice and forethought, deprive you and your fellow citizens of those same God given rights.

Freedom is not free. Are you willing to pay the price?
