All Aboard the McCain Train

Texas just wrapped up its state convention, and some of you (you know who you are) are still living in the past. I know that you didn’t support John McCain in the primary. Not many in Texas did. Duncan Hunter won our straw poll Fred was my man. (It was fun to be a Fredhead.) But the primary is well behind us, and the horrifying prospect of a President Obama is looming large before us. So if you haven’t already done so, it’s time to get on board. Go to his web site:, and sign up today.
Good news! We have a candidate who is an American hero! His service to our country and his many years in the Senate make him uniquely qualified to lead at this time in our history. He is not naïve to the threats that our country faces, and he will make an excellent Commander in Chief.
Senator McCain exemplifies many of the qualities that we look for in a candidate. He does not care what the polls say, for one. While most politicians were running for cover on Iraq, McCain stood firm on the surge, and he was right. One year ago, he gave an amazing speech in support of our troops, and at that time his presidential campaign looked dismal, but he believed in the surge, and he stood his ground. I remember thinking, at the time, that it took tremendous political courage for him to do that when most Americans just wanted us to withdraw our troops. And he did it in the middle of a campaign. Not many politicians would be so brave.
John McCain is a leader in the fight to end earmarks. The only reason that he voted against President Bush’s tax cuts was because of the pork. So he voted no, despite the criticism of his fellow Republicans. That sounds almost Ron Paul-esque. And out-of-control spending has hurt the Republican Party, so we can really appreciate his leadership on that issue.
John McCain has pledged to appoint strict constructionist judges. The importance of judicial appointments, especially to the U.S. Supreme Court, cannot be overstated. Can you imagine the kind of activist liberals that Barack Obama would support?
Senator McCain is known for his straight talk, and that is truly refreshing in a politician. He has challenged Senator Obama to participate in several town hall meetings. I can’t wait. McCain’s experience and stature far outweigh that of Barack Obama. So again, let’s all get on board with McCain, because the train is leaving the station, and we cannot afford to miss it.

It is taking some of us a while, but we will support Senator McCain. The alternative is frightening.

You left out John "Juan Pablo" McCain's authorship of the amnesty bill, which even George Bush supported. These clowns need to join the Democratic Party. They're too stupid to have learned from Ronald Reagan's big mistake, the Immigration Reform Act of 1986 which opened the floodgate to illegal aliens. As time goes by, I'm more convinced that ole Ronnie knew exactly what he was doing. Attracting cheap labor for big business. Wake up conservatives and start voting AGAINST theives like Kay Baily Huchison and John Cornyn who just last month voted for the Farm Bill, an act of thievery that represents everything thats' wrong with America. Then they have the audacity to get up at conventions and make speeches about their conservative values. They can fool all the rest of the delegates who spend hundreds or more going to meetings and conventions, but don't take a few minutes to follow these organized crime syndicate crime bosses' voting records as they funnel money to multi-millionaire farmers making $750,000 dollars per year to buy votes and campaign donations, making themselves millioinaires in the process. It's corruption at it's finest, and yet we applaud them for lying speeches. Wake up people, wake up.
