OK, so now it's time to take a look at the Republican contenders. I won't worry about Mitt, because he's all but out of it now, but I'll definitely consider a look at Huckabee if the idea seems fairly worthwhile at the time. For now here's my constitutional analysis of John McCain (and that's probably the last time you'll see me use his real name around here - as undeserved as it is in the first place).
For starters, I've exercised the utmost fairness here by only evaluating the platform expressed on Mr. McBullshit's campaign website. Given that he's trying to appeal to conservatives (too late idiot, we aren't half asleep like the rest of America), he made sure that the things that WE stand for were emphasized, so it's important to take these results (like those of Barack and Hitlery) with a grain of salt. Hitlery was working to conceal her extreme socialist agenda, and Obama was working to inundate you with so much you wouldn't have a legitimate opportunity to make sense of it all - both in the hope that you would vote for them based on some ridiculous concept of "change". What they seem to be advocating is change for change's sake, rather than encouraging you to look closely at the changes they advocate and THEN decide for whom to vote. Seriously, a change that involves expanding the illegal socialist agenda that's been the order of the day for the last three quarters of a century is clearly not the kind of change that America needs, and I would hope it's not the kind of change she would want.
That being said, I took a look at the agenda that Johnny McFeingold was selling on his website. Some of this stuff was a bunch of outright lies. There's plenty of bullshit on McDumbass's site, and I imagine much of it will be confronted during the campaign. It's sad to note that this scumbag seems to be the last hope America has of avoiding a Hitlery presidency (unless the Schlock can somehow pull off a win - in which case Hitlery will be back to try again, mark my words).
Of course, the benefit of four years of ANY Democrat (including J. McC.) should not be overlooked. Four years of Jimmy Carter gave us eight years of Ronald Reagan, and an economic boom that even eight years of Bill Clinton couldn't stop. This is a great reason to support the current write-in campaign for Fred Thompson. Conservatives have nothing to lose. We either win the campaign and get Thompson elected, or we make a strong statement that can't be ignored in 2012. A strong showing for Fred takes away the liberal mandate each of the four liberals still in the race would otherwise have.
Back to The Asshole. While McDorkus made a pretty good showing here in this review, some of the things he's wrong on are just too wrong to just sit back and accept (Scamnesty and his sponsoring of a bill that, for all intents and purposes, repealed the First Amendment). Some things, as I will point out, are inappropriately inconsistent. Still, McWhatTheHellAmIDoingHere was able to get a grade of 77% constitutional based upon those things that he openly advocates in his platform.
Before you go and get excited about this and go and vote for the guy, let me remind you of a couple of tidbits: McCain-Kennedy and McCain-Feingold.
Both of these are absolute slaps in the face of the conservative movement. You'd think a Senator from a border state, particularly one bordering Mexico, with its reputation, would have some clue when it came to illegal aliens and their shenanigans, but does he?? Nope. Not at all. Does a conservative with presidential aspirations sponsor a bill that, for all intents and purposes, repeals the First Amendment? Wait till you see what else came up in this research.
First, let's address the blatant lies that this idiot posts on his site. Check out this quote from the section entitled "Strict Constructionist Philosophy" (as if someone repealing important tenets of the Bill of Rights could even assert himself as a "strict constructionist"):
We are a free people. This means that the rules we have agreed to live by are those made by the people themselves, not a small elite that claims to be wiser than everybody else.If Johnny-wad believed this, he wouldn't, on the same website, be touting his "achievements" with regard to campaign finance reform, in which he basically tells us that these same free people don't have the right to put our money into political campaigns as we see fit, or say what we want about candidates whenever the fuck we damned well please, as the First Amendment is supposed to guarantee. This is a blatant lie, and I'm not falling for it. You shouldn't either.
Also, some inconsistencies should be addressed. In a section entitled "Second Amendment Rights", we first are handed this line, as if this candidate really belived it (which he may or may not, but hear me out):
John McCain believes that banning ammunition is just another way to undermine Second Amendment rights.OK. So I'm supposed to believe that Jizz McJerkoff believes that banning ammunition is "just another way to undermine Second Amendment rights", when in the next breath I get THIS line of bullshit?
John McCain supports instant criminal background checks to help prohibit criminals from buying firearms ...Last time I checked, those who owed a debt to society were either in prison or under probationary contract not to carry. People who have taken this position have more often than not extended their position to include those who have completed their sentence and have returned to their homes and families. Defining these people as "criminals" and denying them the right to own, carry, and use firearms is an extremely heinous violation of their Second Amendment rights. It is clearly fair to say that anyone considered safe to be out in public unsupervised should not be denied this right. After all, who will defend them against the criminals wearing badges; or worse, the criminals in state capitals and in Washington (including John McCain himself) who commit the very types of crimes I have brought to the fore in this post?
So take it with a grain of salt, but these are the results. That grain of salt is a necessary thing these days, especially with regard to these liberals. Hitlery left a lot of very important shit out. Barack repeated himself to the point of total confusion. McAbel'sMurderer hides illegal positions within legal ones and has a record of repealing rights guaranteed by the Constitution.
Next we'll see what the Huckster would do to America.
