    Looks like that cover says “Roll One”, or “Rollin One”.
    Does RS usually place the photo over the Masthead like that?
    Is there a subliminal message there?

    Hopefully we’ll have a chance to reduce spending with McCain as POTUS.

    Time for the negativity to stop!
    None of the GOP candidates was “perfect”.
    McCain has emerged as the last man standing. It’s up to us now to see that he is elected. We can’t give the WH to the dems - no matter what issues you have w/ McCain.

    It’s time for all of us to start talking about Mccain’s “positives”. I personally am happy that he is our Republican candidate - moving a little toward the center (for now) is okay because it will allow our party to get more votes & hopefully stay in power. Right now that is the important thing.

    We can’t let a dem Prez get to appoint all those SC justices! This election is about so much more than our personal grievances. We must start “accentuating the positives” about our candidate & our party or it looks like we don’t have a consensus - we won’t attract any new voters that way!

    It’s all about the numbers, people! And if we keep bad-mouthing our own candidate, no one else will support him either!

    Now, get over the fact that Romney, Huckabee, Thompason, Hunter, etc. ain’t gonna be on the ballot this time around. McCain is putting his neck out there & he needs all of our support!

    If you can’t get behind McCain, then quit damagng the Republican party & keep your mouth shut! /rant]

    That’s why we have to rally around McCain and help him get elected!

    I’m not going down that road to Socialism w/ Obama or Hillary without a FIGHT!

    Even if McCain isn’t “conservative” enough for you, he’s a darn sight better than either of the alternatives!

    Time to UNITE and GET BUSY!

    Everything I’ve read says he is AGAINST that.

    I’m happy to read some positive comments for McCain on FR for a change!

    He is a lot more conservative than many people realize. Hopefully his speech today will clarify that.

    I’ve been encouraging everyone on FR to unite for McCain since way back when - I hope we can do that now! Whatever issues you have with the guy, he’s a heck of a lot better than any dem alternative! (I can’t believe I read a post on here from someone saying they would drive dems to the polls to prevent a McCain victory! That’s insane!).

    If you think about all the positive vs. negatives regarding McCain, perhaps you’ll see that he could be a candidate that inspires & energizes conservatives as well as moderates - maybe even a few dems like Reagan did!

    I’m EXCITED about our party getting close to having our nominee - I hope all of y’all are too! Let’s get FIRED UP (to steal Obama’s phrase) for McCain - he’ll work hard to do a good job for us!

    He is not pro-embryonic stem-cell research. THIS is his view:

    “As president, John McCain will strongly support funding for promising research programs, including amniotic fluid and adult stem cell research and other types of scientific study that do not involve the use of human embryos.”

    This is his view regarding the 2nd Amendment:

    “John McCain believes that the right of law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms is a fundamental, individual Constitutional right that we have a sacred duty to protect. We have a responsibility to ensure that criminals who violate the law are prosecuted to the fullest, rather than restricting the rights of law abiding citizens. Gun control is a proven failure in fighting crime. Law abiding citizens should not be asked to give up their rights because of criminals - criminals who ignore gun control laws anyway.”

    And regarding “illegals”, he has already done more than any other candidate to try to address the issue. Here is his view on Border Security:

    “As president, I will secure the border. I will restore the trust Americans should have in the basic competency of their government. A secure border is an essential element of our national security. Tight border security includes not just the entry and exit of people, but also the effective screening of cargo at our ports and other points of entry.”

    I think you have McCain confused w/ Romney. McCain is NOT pro-abortion, anti-gun, nor is he pro-illegals.

    It’s ridiculous that Dobson doesn’t support McCain mainly because he’s not in favor of the Federal Marriage Amendment. (McCain asserts that the states should have the power on issues like this. More amendments = bigger government & that’s not Conservatism!).

    McCain supports the 2nd amendment - why would you think that’s “anti-gun”?

    The irony is that McCain gets accused of being a RINO, but he’s got a pretty high conservative rating among senators. I’m amazed that some people (on this forum!) have even said that they’d vote for Clinton because McCain isn’t conservative enough! That’s pathetic!

    So tell me - what is actually getting DONE to address this problem NOW??

    CIR may not have been a perfect solution, but it was a STEP in the right direction.

    Oh I get it, you’d rather the situation just continue to multiply & get worse than accept an imperfect solution.

    At least McCain had the guts to TRY to DO something about the problem!

    McCain does NOT support amnesty.

    Do you realize that the Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill actually PUNISHED the immigrants who were/are here illegally? ($2000. fine) And it required them to pay back taxes. It also provided for increased border enforcement, including funding for 300 miles of vehicle barriers, 105 camera and radar towers, and 20,000 more Border Patrol agents. Also the bill would have required an immigrant to be IN THEIR HOME COUNTRY when they apply for their green card.
    Before you criticize McCain for actually trying to fix a big problem, how about reading the provisions of the bill. Check out Wikipedia, that ought to be simple enough for you.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comprehensive_Immigration_Reform_Act_of_2007
    And please do not fail to understand that by NOT acting on this problem, and leaving things AS THEY ARE, all the current illegals have in effect - AMNESTY!
    Give McCain some credit for actually addressing the problem - that’s a heck of a lot more than is getting done NOW!

    Skipped a few posts but I have to comment when people say McCain favors “amnesty”. That is just not true.

    What McCain meant was that he would make legislators who want to add earmarks to bills & endorse pork projects INFAMOUS. He wants to EXPOSE corruption!

    - McCain knows how to fight the GWOT.
    - Experienced in Foreign Policy.
    - He understands domestic issues & how to deal w/ them.
    - Like Reagan, he will work w/ Dems to actually get something DONE in Washington.
    - He is a staunch supporter of the true conservative ideals of Right-to-Life, 2nd Amendment & strong military.
    - Wants to control spending, reduce taxes & expose corruption in Washington.
    - Doesn’t run from the controversial issues like immigration, but endorses a pragmatic approach which might actiually result in a SOLUTION!
    - Most experienced & knowledgeable candidate.

    Why vote for anyone else??

  • McCain addresses age issue

    Senator McCain’s age has been reported as 71, and I just heard on t.v. that Ron Paul is 72 (not that there are any RP supporters on FR!). But I don’t hear as much of an issue being made of RP’s age even tho’ if that report is accurate, RP is older!

    I’m curious now - will have to check the facts...
