John McCain

THE MCCAIN RECORD

Let us count McCain's "conservative credentials":

-he wrote the bill granting amnesty to illegal immigrants (co-sponsored by Ted Kennedy)

-he voted to give your social security money to illegal immigrants

-he voted against the Bush tax cuts multiple times (he has since flip-flopped and has campaigned as a lifelong tax-cutter)

-he routinely engages in Democratic class warfare against big companies in America

-as recently as December 2007 he admitted "he does not know the economy very well" and needed to get better at it

-he wrote the McCain-Feingold campaign finance bill that was declared to be an unconstitutional infringement of the 1st Amendment (co-sponsored by ultra-liberal Democrat Russ Feingold)

-he was called the "worst 2nd amendment candidate" by the president of the NRA

-wrote a bill (co-sponsored by his buddy Lieberman) imposing a massive tax on energy which, according to the Heritage Foundation, would drastically raise the price of gasoline and put many US companies out of business

-supports radical global warming legislation which involved him voting with every Democrat

-he joined forces with Democrats ("Gang of 14") to block the Senate Republican's attempt to confirm conservative, strict constructionist judges

-he joined liberals to fight against a federal marriage amendment supporting the institution of traditional marriage

-campaigning in 2000, he famously described Christian leaders as "agents of intolerance"

-he filed an amicus brief against pro-life advocates in Wisconsin

-he met with leading Democrats in 2004 to discuss the possibility of being John Kerry's Vice-President

-with most of these positions, unfortunately, McCain hasn't flip-flopped and vows to fight for these liberal causes as president

-if I wanted to elect a Democrat, I would vote for Hillary or Obama

Borrowed from here.
