Thread: Mccain-Palin

    Question Mccain-Palin

    From cnn

    On the economy, McCain defended his vote in favor of the government's $700 billion plan to prop up the lending industry, despite his insistence that as president he would cut spending.

    "Extraordinary circumstances require extraordinary actions," he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer in Manchester, New Hampshire.

    He said he will consider a second economic stimulus package if he is elected president. His running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, said the day before that "this is not a time to use the economic crisis as an excuse for reckless spending."

    My question to USA carry is, when is mccain going to quit the socialism and be a conservative and when will he and his vice president get on the same page with their policy''s? Give me your thoughts. Thanks

    JW, if your going to continue to bash McCain at least post the entire truth. Obama and Biden also voted in favor of the bail out. Post all the facts not just those in favor of your argument. This will lend more credence to what you say and not lend to the argument to you being here only to cause problems. I am not a strict party line or one issue voter but I do post using ALL available facts. I support all thoughts on politics, as long as it's based on rational thought and not on biased decisions.

    Obviously ron you haven't been reading my other posts and comments in other threads. You are absolutley right on Obama and Biden voting for it. The argument is not whether they are socialist cause they are. The only point i want USa carry to acknowledge and admit is that the republican ticket is also socialist in their own way, instead of giving to the lower and middle class and poor Mccain/bush/palin will give it to their friends. Oil company's, billionares, etc. Maybe a 5000 tax credit for everybody like mccain proposes, or like palin give her whole state 1000or 1500 or whatever it was. they all vote for the 700 billion package and would all consider another stimulus package. WHy do you think that the last 8 years of going into the whole as far as the deficit is concerned will change with either candidate. It will only grow. I just get tired of everybody here bashing Obama when both candidates should be bashed.

    The question then is this:
    "Do we vote for the war hero with years of track record and an A rating from the NRA, or do we vote for the gun-grabbing, baby-killer supporting virtual unknown with an F rating?
    (Isn't it strange that the same liberals that called our vets "baby killers" during Nam, have supported a baby killing industry since that war ended?)

    I believe that he didn't mention Obama and Biden's votes for the bailout because it is already a well-known fact that they are already socialists and don't do much to try to hide it. The reason he's focusing on McCain is that he's masquerading as a conservative while voting in favor of more government intervention in the economy, which should be anathema to a legitimate conservative.

    And as for wolfhunter's statement that McCain has an A rating by the NRA, that is absolutely false. See here:

    So, it actually befuddles me why the NRA would decide to endorse him.

    Tattedupboy, maybe the following excerpt will help with why the NRA endorsed McCain besides the fact that Obama is a known anti. The site is John McCain on Civil Liberties Issues - John McCain's Positions on Key Civil Liberties Issues :

    John McCain on Gun Control and the Second Amendment
    Although McCain currently holds a C rating from the NRA, his voting record on Second Amendment issues has been relatively strong; some speculate that his low rating may have something to do with his support for campaign finance reform laws, which has had an impact on gun rights advocacy groups. McCain has consistently opposed a federal ban on "assault weapons," but irritated many gun rights groups when he supported a bill increasing federal regulation of gun shows.

    I mis-spoke. Rather than claiming an A rating for McCain, I should have only stated their endorsement. The NRA probably is doing the same as most of us: Backing the candidate with the closest voting record to our views AND a reasonable chance of winning.

    exactly tatte. Thank you for helping me out their. I just want everyone to realize some things about mccain too instead of always on bomas back. The NRA is endorsing the right candidate based on their views and beliefs to. Obama don't score well with me on guns either but i am looking toward others issues that are more important.

    WOlfhunter, just because mccain is a war hero and i agree he is doesn't automatically qualify him to be president. Obama is not a baby killer. He wants to do everything to reduce abortion. He says leave it up to the state and people that are actually in the situation. Like the mother, her family, thier religious leaders and faith. Being a conservative and pro america and all about small government why would any republican want a government banning or ruling to decide for me and you. Leave it up to the people and states. besides we have had 8 years of W and we still got abortions. So thats not even an issue

    For those who still think Obama is going to be the savior of our country, take a look at his voting (or non-voting) record. It's rather long so look at the bills that sound interesting to you:

    Project Vote Smart - Senator Barack H. Obama Jr. - Voting Record

    Now do the same for McCain. One thing you should notice right off is his amount of non-votes, far less than Obama:

    Project Vote Smart - Senator John S. McCain III - Voting Record

    good post ron. I reviewed the gun and abortion issues. There were only one issue on the guns they didnt vote the same on and it was this oboma voted no and mcain voted yes.

    Official Title of Legislation:

    S 397: A bill to prohibit civil liability actions from being brought or continued against manufacturers, distributors, dealers, or importers of firearms or ammunition for damages, injunctive or other relief resulting from the misuse of their products by others.

    Project Vote Smart's Synopsis:

    Vote to pass a bill that provides liability protection for manufacturers, dealers or importers of firearms or ammunition products, as well as their trade associations, for harm caused by criminal or unlawful misuse.

    Highlights:

    - Exempts lawsuits brought against individuals who knowingly transfer a firearm that will be used to commit a violent or drug-trafficking crime

    - Exempts lawsuits against actions that result in death, physical injury or property damage due solely to a product defect

    - Calls for the dismissal of all qualified civil liability actions pending on the date of enactment by the court in which the action was brought

    - Prohibits the manufacture, import, sale or delivery of armor piercing ammunition, and sets a minimum prison term of 15 years for violations
