On Friday, a man attending a town hall hosted by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in Prescott confronted the senator and told him he should be arrested and charged with treason for supporting al Qaeda in Syria.

"We the people want you to be representative of the people and for this great nation, but for far too long now on the rest of Congress, including the executive branch of government, along with the judicial and legislative have turned your back on the American people and their core values and principles. I can say with great confidence and speak on behalf of all Americans that your actions against this country are treasonous. All of you -- against the will of the American people -- have aided and abetted the enemy," said the town hall attendee.

I’ve been telling people this for weeks...if we are at war with Al Qaeda and we now want to support the Syrian Al Qaeda rebels, then isn’t our government committing treason against itself?

“Expect the IRS to be on his front porch by noon today.”

Yeah, for sure. While I’m not a resident of Arizona, McCain spends a lot of his time on the national stage bloviating about international issues that affect me. So, I feel I have a right to opine about him. And, I thereby say its time for McCain to go. I am tired of him exploiting his Vietnam experience and being a POW for political advantage. While his bravery and patriotism should rightfully be revered they have nothing to do with his knowledge concerning domestic or international issues. In fact, more often than not he and his pal Lindsey are on the wrong side. So, good citizens of Arizona pleeeease do not re-elect him. Give him the metaphorical gold watch and a nice farewell dinner, thank him for his service and tell him to go park his @$$ on his front porch and watch the beautiful sunsets.

It’s quite horrifying to me to see all the responses here - same thing I was thinking as well: That because this AMERICAN CITIZEN spoke his mind (and the TRUTH) to an ELECTED leader, a public SERVANT, that he now needs to fear retribution via the IRS, DOJ, etc...

That right there tells you we are so far into totalitarianism than we’d all like to think. It’s very VERY unsettling.

Our polititians have completely forgotten that they are ELECTED as our REPRESENTATIVES. They now believe their job is to shape our culture. Yes, they are all guilty of treason.

Eh. I was a bit unimpressed. Elements of truth can be lost in an Alex Jones type monologue. He started with the free speech fallback position when unfavorable reactions occurred. Funny thing about free speech: You don't have the right to be heard and others have the right to boo or mock you.

McCain's 8x elected response was the equivalent of Obama's "I won" comment. Just as childish an irrelevant. All he's really doing there is admitting responsibility and complicity in the nation's decline over his career.

It wouldn't surprise me a bit. McCain uses every other progressive tactic in the book and I don't see why he would stop short of using the power of the state to punish his opposition.

If he gets a lot of heat from government agencies, he should hire a publicity firm, put out press releases describing the intimidation, give press conferences on the courthouse steps, and do everything he can to get this info out front and center. The FedGov counts on people to be intimidated, but if we aren’t and throw it right back at them, whatever they are trying to accomplish won’t work. We’ve got to think Alinsky.

Well, if you juxtapose the language from the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq, it gets interesting:

Whereas members of al Qaida, an organization bearing responsibility for attacks on the United States, its citizens, and interests, including the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, are known to be in Syria;

Whereas the rebels in Syria continue to aid and harbor other international terrorist organizations, including organizations that threaten the lives and safety of United States citizens;

Whereas the attacks on the United States of September 11, 2001, underscored the gravity of the threat posed by the acquisition of weapons of mass destruction by international terrorist organizations;

Whereas Syrian terrorists' demonstrated capability and willingness to use weapons of mass destruction, the risk that the current terrorists will either employ those weapons to launch a surprise attack against the United States or its Armed Forces or provide them to international terrorists who would do so, and the extreme magnitude of harm that would result to the United States and its citizens from such an attack, combine to justify action by the United States to defend itself against the Syrian rebels;

Of course he will, and you know how it will happen? The GOP will put him up for election again, and all the conservative voters will say "Well, that Democrat guy would be worse, I'd better vote for McCain. McCain was the most electable, anyway. A vote for someone other than Romney...er...McCain is the same as voting for the Democrat."

It almost seems that many out of fear advocate that we all should bite our tongues and not draw the attention of the watchful eye. I argue otherwise. We should take a page from the progressive playbook and everyone should speak truth to the beast publicly. Over load their system of retaliation. Make these weaklings show their hands. The media won’t cover it of coarse but youtube will. Hit them with the Treason charge every time we can. Then when the hostilities begin it will be on record that they were warned. Folks, this kind of public ridicule is what they hate and they know if we are on record we have the high ground. History vindicate the people. Make revolt as public as possible.
