Skip to comments.John Mccain "I'd rather have clean government than the 1st amendment"
Posted on 04/29/2006 8:04:53 PM PDT by SDGOP
"He [Michael Graham] also mentioned my abridgement of First Amendment rights, i.e. talking about campaign finance reform....I know that money corrupts....I would rather have a clean government than one where quote First Amendment rights are being respected, that has become corrupt. If I had my choice, I'd rather have the clean government."

Well John, That leaves you out of the running for POTUS.....doesn't it!!!
This is a good time to point out that the McCain political machine has been aiming for months to pile infamy on top of infamy when it comes to the First Amendment.
They have been using the Abramoff scandal as a springboard to so-called 'lobbying reform'...which is in fact meant to remold our unalienable right to petition our own government into his own warped vision of how things should be.
He's made it clear that he intends to define what a 'legitimate' Christian organizaiton is, for one thing.
McCain was not really in the hunt anyway. It is a Rudy and Mitt deal, unless someone else gains traction to add to the mix. I really don't see anyone.
Holy %^&* -- well we saw it coming with the McCain-Feingold anti-Constitution bill. Or should I say, anti-First-Amendment bill. McCain is typical of the lunacy and anti-Americanism that is being used as a political tool to GAIN POWER in Washington. McCain, like the rest, and even our own president, have no regard for America, our Constituion, the WILL OF THE PEOPLE and the RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE.
It should be clear by now...
This is a really sad commentary as to how far the GOP has fallen. I don't even know these people anymore.
WELL...Thanks for FINALLY LETTING US KNOW, Johnnie boy...as the Pres said tonight at the Correspondents Dinner.....you ain't Republican.....or Conservative at all.
I really think you're giving them too much credit.
I can't believe he actually said it. I mean, I knew he believed it, but I can't believe he said it.
For years,and now I reiterate, I will not vote for McCain for anything!
I would rather have a clean gun than a government where politicians are respected.
Do not make McPain out to be something special in DC. He is not. He is the epitome of a politician.
He sticks his finger in the wind to see what is blowing by that day and how he can take advantage of it to get face time. No morals, no values. Just personal power. Conservative when it gets him face time, liberal when it gets him face time.
As you hear on the video, he will even abandon the Constitution, if it suits his needs. Yup, the same Constitution that he swore an oath to uphold.
Sorry McPain: You are a war hero and I appreciate that. But you are a typical power hungry, valueless politician that is in love with seeing his face on TV and you will crush anyone, anything, any Constitutional Amendment, any party, any religion, any value to keep your throne.
This is nuts. Hell, following McCain's standards Alexander Hamilton and Jefferson would have been expelled from the government.
My thoughts exactly.
Obviously depends on the degree of corruption in question. If small - then he's wrong, if egregious - then right.
He is such an idiot. Why want Arizona elect a really great conservative republican and send Cain where he belongs....retire this idiot, please.
First Mitt with his socialist health care plan, and now McCain says this. Who's next?
McCain is a dangerous nut.
