I’m of the party of Ronald Reagan and there’s been a debate in our party for years and years about whether we should withdraw to fortress America or not. But to say we’re interventionists is a mislabeling and absolutely false.”
John McCain on FoxNews-
I remember this kind of rhetoric in the first election of Obama, when John McCain told us that he was the only Conservative out here. A statement so preposterously wrong, that time has shown us the truth of it, in everyone’s eyes but John’s.
As a Conservative, John McCain would not have gone against Rand Paul in his filibuster for freedom the other night, and would NOT side with Obama on many issues. On both of those examples I just gave my friends, sadly, he does. And this makes him less of a conservative than almost all of us. He, by telling us he is conservative and he is “the party of Ronald Reagan” shows me that he has no clue as to what a Conservative or Ronald Reagan really stood for.
What America needs now folks is a true conservative. A Constitutional, and fiscal Conservative who can lead this country out of the horrible mess that our current president has put us in.
Now, granted, the mess was started before Obama got to office, but look at some of these facts, that John McCain is totally ignoring here when he speaks out against Paul.
First off, Rand Paul’s argument the other night was not what McCain was asserting. On Fox John McCain was asserting this:
Smith first recapped viewers and showed video of McCain and his colleague Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) mocking and criticizing Paul’s filibuster. McCain, reading from an editorial in the Wall Street Journal, called it a “stunt” meant only to “fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms.”
“No one is going to be struck by a Hellfire missile from a drone that is not an enemy combatant,” McCain said. “That is a fact.”
Instead, McCain said Congress should be focusing on real issues like the massacre in Syria and North Korea’s nuclear capability. He added that the U.S. should not be debating “the impossible scenario.”
The “impossible scenario” Mr. McCain? It seems that you didn’t watch the whole filibuster, and you didn’t listen to what Senator Rand Paul, and other senators were saying. as the Kentucky senator repeatedly made it clear that he doesn’t believe the government would actually drop a missile on an American citizen. Instead, he said he wanted assurance from the White House that the executive branch does not have that kind of power under the U.S. Constitution. Got it Johnny boy? And to top it off sir, we know you were with Obama having dinner with him while Rand Paul was fighting for our freedoms and liberty. You felt it was more important to be with Obama and work on compromise.
The Republican senator (Rand Paul) did admit that there should be more transparency and oversight on the federal government’s drone program, but again stressed that the government would never drop Hellfire missiles on Americans inside the United States. Now, if you had been listening to this historic event John, you would have heard this. But you didn’t. Instead, you flew off the handle and got on your false bandwagon and again tried to convince us all that you are the “only conservative out here,” when you are so far from conservatism and conservative values that a lemming following you could see it. Sadly, John, we the people see it too.
We have to look at what is going on here.
On the night of March 6th, the Senator from Kentucky Rand Paul stood proudly for liberty. His concern was surrounded by the recent INABILITY or Non statements from the Obama administration to answer a simple, straightforward question about drone strikes in America. His question was simple John, whether it was Constitutional for the president to execute Americans *which has been done by Obama by the way in Yemen*, without a trial, without due process and without them posing an imminent threat to America simply because he thinks they ‘might’. That was the question Rand Paul and others that night were trying to get answered. There is more too.
Mr McCain, Obama was not answering that question, until this happened. Rand Paul had been asking for a month and a half, and Obama was ignoring him. So stop telling us the lie that you are the party of Reagan, when you are no such thing.
Senator John McCain, you were wrong in 2008, and you are wrong now. You are no conservative sir, and with your constant siding with Obama and the left, you will never be a Conservative. Ronald Reagan would roll over in his grave to hear you say you have the same values as he did. Because you don’t. PERIOD!
God Bless America
God Bless our troops
God Bless us to see the lies when they are told
