The End of the GOP: If McCain is the Republican Nominee

Should true Conservatives or Republicans trust Senator John McCain to be its nominee?

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.” (Psalm 118:8) “Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” (Psalm 40:4)

Senator John McCain is a senior member of the “ailing Washington culture”. On his Web site, Mr. McCain speaks of the “ailing Washington culture” as though he is or has not been a part of this culture. Let me remind the Senator that in 1982 he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, in 1986 elected to the U.S. Senate and has been in the “ailing Washington culture” ever since.

In order to keep this “ailing Washington culture” going, the New York Times endorses John McCain and Hillary Clinton, maybe they can be running mates. “In backing McCain, the Times editorial board said it had strong disagreements with all the Republicans running for the presidency, but among them the Arizona senator was an easy choice.”

When the New York (Socialist) Times and other liberal left-wing socialist media seriously endorses the GOP candidate it can only mean two things: one, they believe that Conservatives/Republicans are stupid or two, that this is the candidate they do not want to go against because he is more like them. As history indicates McCain could switch his views as a, somewhat, liberal-moderate leaning Republican at any time.

As an example, would a true GOP conservative allow Juan Hernandez to advise them on illegal alien/U.S. border matters? Well Mr. Hernandez, a dual American-Mexican citizen known for his “Mexico first” declarations, is an unpaid adviser to McCain’s presidential campaign.

“Open borders advocate Juan Hernandez has joined the McCain campaign”

John McCain says, “I have always believed that our border must be secure and that the federal government has utterly failed in its responsibility to ensure that it is secure. If we have learned anything from the recent immigration debate, it is that Americans have little trust that their government will honor a pledge to do the things necessary to make the border secure.”

Mr. McCain goes on to say, “Border security and our failed immigration system are more examples of an ailing Washington culture in need of reform to regain the trust of Americans. In too many areas — from immigration and pork barrel spending to Social Security, health care, energy security and tax relief — business-as-usual politics prevents addressing the important challenges facing our nation.”

Did “you can trust me now McCain” forget about the so called Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007, a law that would have provided over 15 million illegal aliens citizenship at the drop of a hat?

On ethics he suggests that, “America deserves and demands a government that serves the country, not itself. Most people believe that elected leaders are more interested in the perks and privileges of office than in public service, and that too often the special interest lobbyists with the fattest wallets and best access carry the day when issues of public policy are being decided.”

What about the McCain–Feingold Act, when it comes to campaign financing ethics, Mr. McCain? A fundamental rip-off of the American citizen’s rights to voice opinions 30-60 days before an election. Talk about the “ailing Washington culture”.

Did “you can trust me now McCain” think that we have forgotten about his role in the “Keating Five Scandal”; the Savings and Loan institutions collapse in the late 1980s. Talk about the “ailing Washington culture”.

This writer believes that it is the beginning of the End of the GOP, if “you can trust me now McCain” is the Republican Nominee for 2008.

Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” (Psalm 40:4) “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.” (Psalm 118:8)
