Any liberty wing candidates game to mount a primary challenge?

"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

Rubio is the 'minority' meat in the neocon sandwich!!

That last shot in the NBC report tells us everything we need to know about Rubio - McInsane white bread to the left, 'You don't get a lawyer' Graham white bread to the right of the Rubio 'minority' meat poster boy for the neocon propaganda machine.


Where's our version?

'entitlement' programs need to go

McCain: "You've had enough time... You've had enough time."

Yes, you too Mr McC, in your own words, "have had enough time."

I have not been invited to his retirement party; but, I will send a nice letter stating I approve of it.

It is the foreign element that commits our crimes. There is no native criminal class except Congress.

I would love to know if any

I would love to know if any of his constituency jumped on him for spearheading a group of senators to put the indefinite detention provision BACK IN the 2013 NDAA bill.

EFF this War-Mongering Neo-Con RAT.

The bastard McCain and his lover Lyndsey Graham deserve a lot more than some people yelling at them.

They should be tried for treason and responsibility for the deaths of thousands of U.S. servicemen and women and innocent Iraqi citizens.

So, the statist audience is

So, the statist audience is upset that they aren't getting enough money from their involuntary ponzi scheme otherwise known as social security? Are these the same types who attack public teacher unions because they do the same thing?

John McCain is a lunatic,

John McCain is a lunatic, who, I believe suffers from PTSD. He is a NeoCon who would be a Dictator just like Obama if he had half a chance. He plays ball with the Banking Elites and should NEVER, be trusted.

I was waiting for him to say

I was waiting for him to say "My friend, You are a jerk!"

Repeal the 17th Amendement

and let the states pick their Senators, doubt he would get reelected if that was still the case.

I'm not so sure

State government in AZ is still controlled by Republican establishment types, although the liberty movement is working hard at making some inroads. Warranted or not, McCain is a legend in AZ politics, and my belief is that we will be stuck with him until he decides to retire.

I have been scouring YouTube

I have been looking for a video of this town hall meeting in its entirety, or near entirety, without MSM propagandists telling us what happened, or what to think about what happened. But so far I haven't seen any video without talking heads spouting their bulls#%$, but I'll keep looking.


That is the most sense that I ever heard come out of McCain's mouth.

I went ahead and up-voted myself to counteract all the down-votes I will receive from 'libertarians'.

He's not called McAMNESTY......

..........for nothing!

A couple of days with this Will keep them Off the Fence.


Dillon mini gun. There made in Arizona.

McCain is a traitor.

I don't care how many days he spent in the Hanoi Hilton.

Republicans need to wake up to the fact that it is psychopathic politicians like him, spouting crap about "doing the Lord's work" and trying to shame American's by invoking our nation's "Judeo-Christian" ethic that are the worst enemies of our constitution. Why? Because they specifically target the demographic that could be its most ardent defenders.

Not to Mention

...The MSM BS about "how he wouldn't seek his freedom, until all his fellow POWs were freed"...
Wasn't a hero...just another VICTIM who capitalized on it!

Angry constituents... getting the government they deserve

Maybe next time they will do a better job finding a principled candidate to represent them.

Yes this is a harsh thing to say considering what an @sshat McCain is, but they elected him. Deal with it.

This indignant BASTARD has had enough time!

When the "politicians" start treating their constituents like this its time for them to go.

The arrogance of this elitist is astounding. Where he hell does he get off on treating the people of his State like this.

If they reelect him or continue to put up with him, they deserve him!

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...

My President (Obama-D), my Senators (McCain-R and Flake-R), and my Congresswoman (Sinema-D) do not share my beliefs on many topics. I know how it feels to not be represented in Washington, DC.

But Just Consider This

...You could be living in California...or...New York! (like myself)

They are breaking us down...state-by-state, that's why we must hang together, to battle these SOB's.

He Isn't Called McInsane For Nothing

He may as well be a liberal democrat//
