Up until one month ago, John McCain was reviled by the Republican Party and evangelicals. Right wing radio loathed John McCain. This distaste grew as he campaigned and continued right up until his pick of Sarah Palin for VP. What exactly has changed? John McCain is called a 'maverick' because he opposed his own party on issues that are cornerstones of the republican platform. The 'maverick' monicker was used by liberals to praise a man that was willing to vote with them on issues giving government more power over you. Do republicans forget that John McCain was on the brink of switching to the democratic party after his loss to Bush in 2000? Just five days before selecting Sarah Palin as his VP, McCain was decided on Joe Lieberman. This is actually the republican nominee? Why trust him now? Because he selected an uber-religious woman as his running mate? I still remember McCain describing christians as "agents of intolerance" several years ago. But now he courts them. What in his record gives you trust he will appoint conservative judges to the supreme court?
John McCain is no conservative. If you are a conservative, you know this is true. But, as I drive through town, I see people putting out their McCain signs. I would like to ask them- are you really a republican or have you fallen for the spectacle of Sarah Palin? Do you just hate him less than Obama? The fact that John McCain now leads the republican party is proof that the party has lost its way, hijacked by neo-conmen, liberals, and evangelicals. The party of Reagan is dead. Neo-conned. Reagan was the last president to keep them out of government. Warmongering is not an ideal of true conservatism or evangelism.
I do not vote for evil of any degree. I encourage everyone to visit Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty before voting: http://www.campaignforliberty.com/. Respect for the Constitution, the rule of law, individual liberty, sound money, and a noninterventionist foreign policy constitute the foundation of the Campaign for Liberty.
