Letter from McCain
Letter from McCain | 3/5/14 | John McCain

Posted on 03/05/2014 1:20:52 PM PST by Don Corleone

Dear Mr.

Thank you for contacting me. I appreciate hearing your views.

I am a proud conservative. If you examine my record, you will find that I am fiscally responsible and have consistently fought against Washington pork barrel politics. I believe in tax reform and in deep tax cuts for the American people. I also believe in the need to allow Americans to invest a portion of their Social Security in private accounts as well as school choice that allows parents to free their children from failing schools. I remain a strong supporter of our Armed Forces, a national missile defense system, and many other issues critical to our nation.

I want to work to make certain that our country continues to remain the greatest on this Earth, not just for my party, but for our nation. While we may sometimes differ on particular issues, I want to thank you for taking the time to share your opinion and urge you to visit my web site where many issues of concern to you are addressed in greater detail.

Again, thank you for contacting me and taking the time to share your opinions.

Sincerely, John McCain United States Senator

JM/JT

Maybe when he says “I” he’s referring to someone else?

Yo Cap’n “Maverick” McQueeg. If you must profess your conservative ‘bonafides’ like this ... you ain’t got ‘em.

Meanwhile he was off “representing” Arizona by running around Ukraine, hanging out with terrorists in Syria, and having a tequila with El Presidente de Meheco reassuring him that he’ll get the palefaces to subsidize his people.

Conservatives DO NOT ARM al Qaeda,
and do not coverup that treason.

Why do ALL the candidates of both parties seem to run as fast as they can to portray themselves as ‘proud conservatives’, but no one ACTS like it when they are in office???

“I want to work to make certain that our country continues to remain the greatest on this Earth, not just for my party, but for our nation.”

In this sentence, Juan McLame reveals exactly why he and his ilk must be removed from office at the earliest possible time: “not just for my party, but for our nation.”.

I have absolutely no use or respect for ANY office holder that would even think that “my party” would or could come before “our nation”.

In the Oath of Office that each and every office holder swears to, there is NO MENTION at all about one’s party loyalty. The Oath of Office clearly puts the Constitution as the primary recipient of one’s loyalty.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

I have said this before and will say so again: Mr. McCain (and others in Congress) have been and remain being guilty of DERELICTION OF THEIR SWORN DUTY and as such deserve to be removed from office. Period. End of Story.

How many decades ago was that blurb written?
Must have been long before his leftwingnut dementia set in.
Or maybe it's just boilerplate from "Running For Office As A Conservative For Dummies".

LOL. These are what I call “KMA” letters. They go straight into the garbage. I don’t even bother to read them.

Certainly on the popcorn ... gosh, these mclame threads draw more observers than first thought. Please have a glass of wine while we wait.

“by the way.....FORGET ABOUT:
GI POWs left behind in Southeast Asia and Laos.
GI POWs left behind in Korea after that war.
GI Ex-German POWs left behind in Soviet-occupied Europe after 1945.
GI POWs left behind in Soviet hands after the 1919 fighting.

After all—I made it back.”

Makes you wish McCain was taken out with Alan Cranston and the rest of the Keating-5. We’d all be better off without the chest thumping and the temper tantrums and the Media-whoring.

” I am a proud conservative”

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Look in the phone book - there is more than one John McCain. It must have been a statement from one of them.

He wants to “conserve” zerocare and “conserve” the ability for the executive branch to run up the national debt to infinity and beyond without congressional oversight or any other hurdles.

I wish he’d “conserve” his breath by putting a plastic bag over his head for a few hours.
