Dear John McCain, please retire already

Dear John McCain, you are not a conservative.
That is why many Republicans did not vote for you in 2008.
As a RINO, you are part of the current problem.
Please retire.
Sincerely, America

Its up to Arizona to decide this one...

Comparing The Candidates

J.D. Hayworth helped write the Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003. John McCain voted against them and denounced them as “tax cuts for the wealthy.”

J.D. Hayworth opposed TARP. John McCain was a key vote for the measure. In fact, former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said that “We wouldn’t have gotten TARP done if John McCain hadn’t been supportive of it.” McCain wanted to go even further, proposing an additional $300 Billion to buy up all of the bad debts, leaving the taxpayers to pay for the mistakes of others.

J.D. Hayworth opposed the auto bailouts. John McCain supported them.

J.D. Hayworth opposes Cap & Trade legislation and rejects phony climate change data. John McCain co-wrote the McCain-Lieberman Cap & Trade bill.

J.D Hayworth opposes amnesty for illegal aliens and has a long record of fighting to secure our borders and enforce our laws. John McCain co-wrote the McCain-Kennedy Amnesty bill that the Heritage Foundation estimated would cost the taxpayers $2.6 Trillion.

J.D. Hayworth believes that a vigorous political debate is vital to the long-term health of our nation, and that free speech is the cornerstone of our Constitutional Republic. John McCain co-wrote the McCain-Feingold legislation that placed a gag order on groups like the National Rifle Association and National Right to Life. This legislation was largely struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court because it constituted a direct assault on the first amendment rights of Americans. McCain was “disappointed” by the outcome.

J.D. Hayworth supported the Federal Marriage Amendment and believes it is critical that marriage be protected from those who would redefine it. John McCain voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment.

J.D. Hayworth supports the appointment and confirmation of conservative, strict constitutionalists, as judges. John McCain led the Gang of 14 that blocked the confirmation of just these kinds of judges. Yet John McCain voted to confirm Eric Holder as Attorney General of the United States?

J.D. Hayworth is a proven, consistent conservative, with a lifetime rating of 98 from the American Conservative Union. John McCain’s lifetime rating is 81 and dropping. McCain’s score last year was an abysmal 63. And while John McCain falsely claims that J.D. Hayworth is a big spender, he ignores the fact that J.D. Hayworth has a better lifetime rating from Citizens Against Government Waste than does McCain.


  1. I voted for John McCain in 2008 because of his ACU rating and he seems like a honorable guy. However, I enjoyed your article and nearly 30 years is too long to be in Congress. In Utah we have Bob Bennett who wants to be elected to a fourth term. His lifetime rating is 83 and last year it was only 64.

  2. Thanks for stopping by serket - this article is from the JDforsenate.com

    get out there and support, vote for your best conservative candidates!

    McCain is too much of a RINO and not helping...

    cheers from LisaG

  3. If McCain is not conservative, please explain why he was just awarded with the THIRD most fiscally conservative member in Senate...

  4. Hi Vicky,
    You first: Who awarded him that? Which Org and what is your source? He's a big government, spend allllllll of your money kinda guy (so he is probably a Dem in RINO clothes?)...

    A reminder of what McCain has supported from Michelle Malkin's site:

    "The Republican party “lost its way” on core limited government principles because of McCain’s radical progressive agenda. Question for Mr. Bennett: Can you please provide the exact citation and context of the so-called admission you attribute to McCain?

    Because to this day, McCain refuses to admit his own individual responsibility for supporting the pre-socialization of the economy started under George W. Bush and continued under Obama. And fellow Republicans continue to whitewash McCain’s fiscal irresponsibility record.

    McCain has never admitted he was wrong about his support of:

    *The $700 billion all-purpose, earmark-stuffed TARP bailout;

    *The $25 billion auto bailout;

    *The $300 billion mortgage entitlement bailout; and

    *The first $85 billion AIG bailout."

    see: http://michellemalkin.com/2010/02/22/attention-gop-john-mccain-is-the-problem/

    does all that sound "fiscally conservative" to you?

    how about "http://www.yankmccain.com/" for some humor and mocking...

    if you're in AZ, this site says McCain is the farther of the birther movement (or what I like to call "seeking the truth of constitutional eligibility requirements" http://seeingredaz.wordpress.com/

    for more on how McCain (and of course BHO) were BOTH ineligible to be POTUS, see updates at: http://puzo1.blogspot.com/

    have a good day and thanks for stopping by
