With these two clowns working together, disaster looms.
Juan McInsane is truly the Manchurian Candidate, and the North Vietnamese were only willing to return him because they knew he would continue their Communist work in America.

Senator John McCain of Arizona and his top ally, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina,
took a different tack from most of their colleagues. Its a good start, ...
South Carolina .... Primary him! [AZ ... recall the geezer!]
Ok, we all know that the tax-codes are a big mess and that none of this is going to be effective unless spending/debt-incurance is curtailed. Likewise, we know that assumption of debt will not be halted so long as the tax-system allows (a) the government to take interest-free loans, and/or (b) such complexity that they find errors with any reporting they choose.
Therefore we need to address both problems at once.
|Fiscal Responsibility Amendment
||Tax Reform Amendment
| Section I
The power of Congress to regulate the value of the dollar is hereby repealed.
The value of the Dollar shall be one fifteen-hundredth avoirdupois ounce of gold of which impurities do not exceed one part per thousand.
To guard against Congress using its authority over weights and measures to bypass Section I, the ounce in Section II is approximately 28.3495 grams (SI).
The Secretary of the Treasury shall annually report the gold physically in its possession; this report shall be publicly available.
The power of the Congress to assume debt is hereby restricted: the congress shall assume no debt that shall cause the total obligations of the United States to exceed one hundred ten percent of the amount last reported by the Secretary of the Treasury.
Any government agent, officer, judge, justice, employee, representative, or congressman causing gold to be confiscated from a private citizen shall be tried for theft and upon convection shall:
a. be removed from office (and fired, if an employee),
b. forfeit all pension and retirement benefits,
c. pay all legal costs, and
d. restore to the bereaved twice the amount in controversy.
The federal government shall assume no obligation lacking funding, neither shall it lay such obligation on any of the several States, any subdivision thereof, or any place under the jurisdiction of the United States. All unfunded liabilities heretofore assumed by the United States are void.
The federal government shall make all payments to its employees or the several states in physical gold. Misappropriation, malfeasance and/or misfeasance of funds shall be considered confiscation.
| Section I
No tax, federal or state, shall ever be withheld from the wages of a worker of any citizen of either.
No property shall be seized for failure to pay taxes until after conviction in a jury trial; the right of the jury to nullify (and thereby forgive) this debt shall never be questioned or denied.
The second amendment is hereby recognized as restricting the power of taxation, both federal and state, therefore no tax (or fine) shall be laid upon munitions or the sale thereof.
The seventh amendment is also hereby recognized, and nothing in this amendment shall restrict the right of a citizen to seek civil redress.
No income tax levied by the federal government, the several States, or any subdivision of either shall ever exceed 10%.
No income tax levied by the federal government, the several States, or any subdivision of either shall ever apply varying rates to those in its jurisdiction.
No retroactive or ex post facto tax (or fee) shall ever be valid.
The congress may not delegate the creation of any tax or fine in any way.
No federal employee, representative, senator, judge, justice or agent shall ever be exempt from any tax, fine, or fee by virtue of their position.
Any federal employee, representative, senator, judge, justice or agent applying, attempting to apply, or otherwise causing the application of an ex post facto or retroactive law shall, upon conviction, be evicted from office and all retirement benefits forfeit.

(Q: Why am I here? A: To do Justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with my God.)
But it wasnt impossible to find Republicans willing to praise the president. Senator John McCain of Arizona and his top ally, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, took a different tack from most of their colleagues. Its a good start, McCain tells me. Certainly we would not accept the presidents offer now. But we also want to continue the discussions were having, which we hope would lead to serious negotiations. Somewhat surprisingly, given that he faces reelection in 2014 in a conservative state, Graham was if anything to McCains left on the issue. Specifically, he praised the idea of new stimulus spending on infrastructure, which McCain criticized. Obamas offer is moving in the right direction, Graham says. The big challenge for us is, what do you do about long-term entitlements? That has to be addressed.
It doesn't really matter how many good men you have on your side in Washington, D. C., because they can all be literally silenced by one or two big mouths who side with the Marxists. You see, the art of politics in Washington, D. C. these days, as it relates to reporting in the nation's media, is such that logic and reasoning don't rule the day. Simply having one or two "Conservatives" (hack, hack, cough, cough...) voice an opinion clearly more Marxist than "the rest", casts "the rest" as rigid unyielding ideologues, thus nullifying their opinions, their line of reasoning no matter how valid it is.
Here McCain and Graham display this dynamic perfectly. "Who cares what the others think, here are two reasoned people on the Right." (Hack, hack, cough, cough...) "Why don't the rest act like this?" There you have it. Their opinion matters, the opinions of all those who disagree relegated to the round file because "everyone knows" they're just rigid unyielding ideologues.
I and many others tried to explain this to Arizona's residents here in 2010. It didn't matter. They had every excuse in the book why McCain was the right guy. In 2016, if McCain is found to have lied yet another time and decides to run, we'll have the same problem again. McCain is NEVER TO BE TRUSTED. That will not matter to the good citizens of Arizona any more than it did in 2010.
You can beat folks over the head with the facts, it just doesn't matter. Many inundated the McCain supporters with facts. The other candidate had made two errors they could point to, and that was all that mattered. McCain, a man with literally hundreds of problems, was their guy and that was that.
You really have to wonder sometimes who people really are who come here and participate for years, then support a guy who has sold Conservatism out decade after decade. If they don't support Conservatism, why do they spend years on the forum? Seriously!
Well, we're experiencing six more years of this POS, just like we said we would. Being right isn't all it's cracked up to be. You know exactly what is going to take place, you watch folks who are too stupid to get out of their own way, and then you have to suffer the excruciating pain of watching your prediction play out in slow motion.
John S. McCain, Only three and a half more excruciating years, of Conservatism being defeated time and again. Enjoy!

I posted this on an earlier thread:
“McCain is the epitome of the enemy within, a traitor to his party, a bogus maverick, conservatives in Congress should start calling him out as such.”
Everyone should be cleaning their own house, Congress is very dirty.

This is probably an old rumor, but did McCain become the only POW to gain weight while he was in captivity.
