Why Even Bother Locking Our Front Doors at Night?

Republican John McCain is retiring to his Sedona, Arizona home for the weekend. While there, he is hosting a little 'get together' for some other politicians being touted as potential running mates with McCain on the ticket.

But whoever accepts Senator McCain's offer of Vice Presidential nominee, must cease being a conservative by definition, and accept the second banana role to a Liberal-placating, environmentally friendly boss.

So in other words, McCain will take a conservative down in flames with him and the rest of the Republican party this fall. The only safe conservative is the one not up for any reelection this fall.

Ruining the reputation of Governors Romney of Massachusetts, Jindal of Louisiana, or Crist of Florida will certainly assuage Mr. McCain's feelings of rejection, if he is not alone in that boat.

Under the heading of 'Issues' at the
McCain for President website, one can read this gobbledee-gook on "Immigration", from McCain:

As president, I will secure the border. I will restore the trust Americans should have in the basic competency of their government. A secure border is an essential element of our national security. Tight border security includes not just the entry and exit of people, but also the effective screening of cargo at our ports and other points of entry. But a secure border will contribute to addressing our immigration problem most effectively if we also:
Recognize the importance of building strong allies in Mexico and Latin America who reject the siren call of authoritarians like Hugo Chavez, support freedom and democracy, and seek strong domestic economies with abundant economic opportunities for their citizens.
[and] Recognize the importance of pro-growth policies -- keeping government spending in check, holding down taxes, and cutting unnecessary regulatory burdens -- so American businesses can hire and pay the best.
[and] Recognize the importance of a flexible labor market to keep employers in business and our economy on top. It should provide skilled Americans and immigrants with opportunity.

Mr. McCain's words are dualistic, two-faced, contradictory. And worst, his words signify that amnesty is what he would shove down our throats, if elected. For example, "... so American businesses can hire and pay the best" conflicts with his very next sentence: "the importance of a flexible labor market to keep employers in business...."

Why won't McCain say "illegal immigrants"? Because John McCain loves illegal, cheap laborers. He's just being a good Liberal.

In the border fence debate in 2007, McCain showed more contempt for his fellow Americans, his fellow Senators, and voters he was campaigning in front of than can be recalled in recent years. Claiming to literally "know more" about the issue of border security and illegal immigration than anyone else in the room, he watched in anger as his bipartisan Amnesty bill went down to flaming defeat.

Showing even more contempt for the American people he has mocked citizen border patrol who voluntarily use their time insuring legal border passage by those seeking it. And with a reverberation that echoed around the nation John McCain cursed American voters by saying, "I think the fence is least effective. But I'll build the g**d***ed fence if they want it."

That's how Mr. McCain contradicts another of his campaign points, restoring the basic trust in the competecy of government. He thinks that he does not need to listen to Americans' demands from thier government. That as President, he can offer up a secure border, which his Democratic Congress will surely pass, and expect us all to like it.

Instead, I expect John McCain will curse us all again, come Wednesday, November 5.

When McCain appeared on Hannity and Combs on the Fox News Channel, he promised Sean that he understood how the people felt and that he would listen to them and not push for amnesty. Two weeks later he turned around in another speech and said that he will push for amnesty because as he said: "We must treat the illegals humanely."

The man is worse than Hillary or Obama. At least those two come right out and let you know they Liberals, McCain covers up the fact that he is liberal.

I have no huge love for McCain but he is better then the alternative. I guess that is a saddened endorsement.
