Why am I voting for John McCain? By Theop
1. John McCain Loves The United States of America. Senator McCain said this in his acceptance speech. It moved me deeply:
I fell in love with my country when I was a prisoner in someone else's. I loved it not just for the many comforts of life here. I loved it for its decency; for its faith in the wisdom, justice and goodness of its people. I loved it because it was not just a place, but an idea, a cause worth fighting for. I was never the same again. I wasn't my own man anymore. I was my country's.
I'm not running for president because I think I'm blessed with such personal greatness that history has anointed me to save our country in its hour of need. My country saved me. My country saved me, and I cannot forget it. And I will fight for her for as long as I draw breath, so help me God.
Barack Obama loves?? Who knows? The press won’t investigate him or run any stories that are not Obama swoon pieces. He has no paper trail and refuses to release documents or talk about significant parts of his life. Bill Ayers head of the Weather underground (who with his wife Bernadet Doren bombed the Capitol, the Pentagon, police stations and the home of a Federal Judge) was “just a guy in the neighborhood” according to Senator Obama. That is all we would know about the relationship if it was up to Obama and the main stream media. Thanks to Stanley Kurtz we know Senator Obama worked closely with Bill Ayers on the Chicago Annenburg Challenge and through the challenge gave millions of dollars (possibly as much as 120 million) intended for improving the education of Chicago’s children to Ayer’s political allies with no improvement in the education of Chicago’s children.
Obama claimed Jeremiah Wright as a mentor in his book The Audacity of Hope (the title taken from one of Wright’s sermons in which Wright says a World in need is caused by the white man’s greed). Now Obama claims that he didn't know that Jeremiah Wright preached black liberation theology (a form of Marxist racial hate disguised as Christianity) and anti-Americanism from his pulpit. Two questions remain about Barack Obama that you never have to ask about John McCain are: Who is this man? and Will he fight for America?
2. John McCain will appoint A Supreme Court that respects the Constitution. John McCain will appoint Supreme Court Justices like Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Scalia. These are Justices who consistently look to the Constitution to decide the Constitution and do not view the Constitution as flexible to be molded at the whim of the Justice. Senator Obama has indicated that he will appoint justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Justice Stevens. These justices view the Constitution as flexible to be bent to their whims and political views. The next president will appoint at least two and possibly four Supreme Court justices and electing Barackc Obama will change the court for more than a generation. There are also a large number of Federal Appeals Court and District Court vacancies and allowing Barack Obama to appoint these judges would be a disaster.
3. John McCain is pro-life. The National Abortion Rights Action League web site says this. (Pro-life language has been substituted for the pro abortion language found on the web site)
“Sen. John McCain served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1983 to 1986 and in the U.S. Senate from 1987 to present. During his four years in the House, then-Rep. McCain cast 11 votes on abortion and other life issues. Ten of these votes were Pro-life. In the Senate, Sen. McCain has cast 119 votes on abortion and other life issues, 115 of which were Pro-life.”
Senator Obama is not just pro-choice but pro-abortion. Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, at Princeton University in an article exploring Senator Obama’s abortion policies said, “Barack Obama is the most extreme pro-abortion candidate ever to seek the office of President of the United States. He is the most extreme pro-abortion member of the United States Senate. Indeed, he is the most extreme pro-abortion legislator ever to serve in either house of the United States Congress.”
Professor George continues:
“He (Obama) has promised that ''the first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act'' (known as FOCA). This proposed legislation would create a federally guaranteed ''fundamental right'' to abortion through all nine months of pregnancy, including, as Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia has noted in a statement condemning the proposed Act, ''a right to abort a fully developed child in the final weeks for undefined 'health' reasons.'' In essence, FOCA would abolish virtually every existing state and federal limitation on abortion, including parental consent and notification laws for minors, state and federal funding restrictions on abortion, and conscience protections for pro-life citizens working in the health-care industry-protections against being forced to participate in the practice of abortion or else lose their jobs. The pro-abortion National Organization for Women has proclaimed with approval that FOCA would ''sweep away hundreds of anti-abortion laws [and] policies.''
There are many other reasons to vote for John McCain but these are sufficient. If these reasons don’t convince you think of a Liberal Democratic Congress headed by Nancy Pelossi and Harry Reed ( currently with a 15% approval rating) operating unrestrained by a President Obama, the most liberal Senator in the Senate. A Senator who has never bucked his party on any signifigant issue.
See you at the polls.
