I have no love for John McCain and as PoliPundit points out most Conservatives - and Americans in general - lest not forget the eight sins that McCain has committed. I'm sure there are more than these eight, but it is a good start. Not only were these sins committed against Conservatives, but most are against your rights as Americans, against the best interests of the United States but also against the sovereignty of our country.
1. They say God put Republicans on earth to cut taxes. But John McCain was one of only two Republicans to vote against the Bush tax cuts.
2. McCain was the biggest supporter, and co-sponsor, of McCain-Feingold, the greatest assault on free speech in at least three decades.
3. McCain backs all kinds of anti-gun legislation.
4. McCain attempted to give terrorists at Gitmo various “rights.”
5. McCain supports various intrusive government regulations to stop “global warming.”
6. McCain insulted various Christian leaders during the 2000 campaign.
7. McCain called the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth “dishonest and dishonorable” because they dared question what John Kerry had done in Vietnam.
8. McCain championed, sponsored, and repeatedly attempted to ram through a bill to amnesty 20 million illegal aliens, and import tens of millions of poor, low-skilled, under-educated, non-English-speaking Third Worlders.
Read more to see what else PoliPundit has to say on McCain.
And just think, this is one of the best "leaders" that America can produce...
... at least according to the Republican Party.

Hmm, he is right on issues 4 and 6.
Due process requires that one, anyone, be informed of the charges against him and that the gvernment prove those charges. It is wrong to condem one as a terrorist until proven. Guilty until innocent then denying a man his day in court is anti-American.
Also, Sadaam was not a threat to the US. He had NOTHING to do with 9/11. Bush is a war criminal who has problems with international sovereignty here and abroad.
Christians. Are out of touch with reality. Back from the dead? Virgin birth? Floating off to heaven? Lying to kids. Christian morality isn't. Love, truth, integrity, etc all stand on their individual merit without resorting to lies. A lie in the name of a perceived greater truth is still a lie.

Sadaam was not a threat to the US
I do beg to differ on that. There were numerous times that Saddam shot at our planes in the designated no-fly zone after the Kuwait invasion. There were other actions as well.
Revisionist history has tried to make it seem like Saddam was some kind of non-threat and non aggressive and pacified ...
Whether that was cause for an invasion or not... I digress.
Just keep in mind that looking back is easier than looking ahead. Hindsight is 20/20. I choose not to accept what the media keeps repeating over and over and do actual research and come to my own conclusions.
So on the war, just remember that most of these people repeating the mantra were against it from the beginning and hoping for failure (some even going as far as trying to ensure it failed).
So if you are for the war or against the war, I personally don't care which, as long as you came to that decision through your own findings and not just taking some other persons word for it.

"There were numerous times that Saddam shot at our planes in the designated no-fly zone after the Kuwait invasion."
What the hell are we doing in the middle east? What gives us the right? Do you or do you not support national sovereignty, regardless of the country?
Iraq's invasion of Kuwait was a UN problem, not just US. Why do we think we have a responsibility to protect the world?
We need to stop meddling and dismantle the American empire. Shut down all foreign bases and end all foreign aid. Our founding fathers wisely advised not to get involved in foreign entanglements.
As a former soldier I am not willing to die protecting the freedom of a foreign country that is not an ally.
As far as the US dropping bombs in Iraq; I have not heard of this due process bomb, which is able to tell the good guys from the bad. You can bet that if a foreign country dropped bombs in my neighborhood we would at war, with Allah on my side.
Digger, I suggest we stay allies to fight illegal aliens and not stray into other areas which divide us.
P.S., I have a DVD recording of a reporter asking GW what Iraq had to do with 9/11, in which GW, who was caught off guard and in a rare moment of honesty, replied "nothing."
