What's Wrong with McCain?

Dr. Dobson of Focus on the Family sums it up nicely:

"I am deeply disappointed the Republican Party seems poised to select a nominee who did not support a Constitutional amendment to protect the institution of marriage, voted for embryonic stem-cell research to kill nascent human beings, opposed tax cuts that ended the marriage penalty, has little regard for freedom of speech, organized the Gang of 14 to preserve filibusters in judicial hearings, and has a legendary temper and often uses foul and obscene language," Dobson stated.

"McCain actually considered leaving the GOP caucus in 2001, and approached John Kerry about being Kerry's running mate in 2004," Dobson continued. " McCain also said publicly that Hillary Clinton would make a good president. Given these and many other concerns ... I cannot, and will not, vote for Sen. John McCain, as a matter of conscience."

Ditto! Dobson remarked on the Glen Beck radio show a few days ago that this is probably the first election since he became an adult and old enough to vote that he will not be casting a vote... period!

Conservatives are beginning to amaze me in their inability to see what's really at stake here.

This election is about more than McCain and his inability to follow conservative principals - and that has been proven true a hundred times.

But how is handing the whole country over to liberals a suitable alternative to McCain?

There is a serious difference between McCain and a pure bread liberal who is bent on destroying ALL conservative values as well as our country with them.

Anti McCain commentators such as Rush Limbaugh have ventured the idea that perhaps we should sit this election out and let the Dems have a term in office, claiming it might pave the way for a future shot at a candidate he and others will like in four years.

Imagine the damage our country will endure if Democrats control all three branches of government for 4 to 8 years.

This would give liberals what they will treat as a clear sign from America that is it ready to move sharply to the left. Not slightly to the left.

My daughters will come of age in the next 4 to 8 years, and I'd rather have 50% of McCains earn than 0% of a destruction bent liberal's ear.

Cherry picking our candidate is exactly what got us INTO this mess, and if conservatives aren’t careful, they may throw the entire country into a liberal spin that can take a decade(s) to pull back out of.

There is no such thing as a quick recovery from 4 years of liberalism unchecked. We may be facing what will take years and years of damage to undo. What’s more, there’s no guarantee that it WILL be undone. Have conservatives completely forgotten Roe v. Wade and other extremely important issues? We need an allie on every core issue we can get.

Questioning McCain was right and highly useful for a time and a season. Many of us wish we had acted sooner to support Romney or Huck....

But staying home on election day allows liberals a pass to capture all THREE branches of Government. Do you want your kids growing up in that kind of environment?

I'm not asking anyone to sacrifice their own belief or convictions, but we have a serious serious problem here, that we can't afford to fall asleep on.

Give it some thought, friends.

My dear Danny,
We survived 8 years of the Clintons and nary noticed the difference. We were able to hunker down with our families and while the Dems were sending jobs overseas we were largely unmolested.

McCain IS A LIBERAL. Do you understand that? He asked Kerry if he could be his running mate. I guess only b/c he was already married to Moma T. There was nothing else to aspire to.

Even Kerry had the sense to turn him down.

The republican party has been over for a while. I voted for Mike Peroutka in the last election, a prolife candidate. (a strange breed these days).

It's over ya know. Find the most prolife candidate and vote- maybe a Ron Paul write in- and move on with a clear conscience.

Hilary or Obama is begginning to sound like he best thing that could happen to this country then we can all be martyrs and can pray to God for strength in that rather than enduring this constant assault and torture of the soul with lukewarmness with these guys like McCain
