I just found this wonderful article. I really like it, and i think its fitting for this forum right now, amongst all of the 'non-issue' stuff.
Here's a few REAL reasons not to vote for McCain.
1: McCain-Lieberman Bill. Forecasts of global warming remain speculative at best and global warming alarmists themselves admit any feasible reductions
in greenhouse gases would have very little effect on climate. This bill has a mandate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 2000 levels by 2010.
Charles Rivers Associates, in cooperation with the National Black Chamber of Commerce's United for Jobs project, analyzed the projected costs of this
* It will cost the average U.S. household at least $600 per year by 2010, rising to at least $1,000 per year by 2020.
* It will cost the U.S. economy at least 39,000 jobs in 2010, and at least 190,000 jobs by 2020.
* It will force at least a 13% rise in electricity prices by 2010 and at least a 19% rise in electricity prices by 2020.
* It will force at least a 9% rise in gasoline prices by 2010 and at least a 14% rise in gasoline prices by 2020.
2: McCain-Kennedy Immigration Reform Bill. This bill would allow illegal aliens to stay in this country and sign up for a visa program by paying
$1,500. This amounts to amnesty that undercuts the rule of law by rewarding those who have acted wrongly and it will only encourage further illegal
entry. Elect McCain president and you will see this piece of mishigoss in your face again with anyone disagreeing with it being accused of being
"un-American". Imagine that.
3: McCain-Feingold Bill. This piece of work is supposed to combat corruption, or the appearance thereof , in the political process. But by restricting
the quantity and regulating the content and timing of political speech, the law serves incumbents, who are better known than most challengers, more
able to raise money and uniquely able to use aspects of their offices--franked mail, legislative initiatives, C-SPAN, news conferences--for
self-promotion. Pretty nice for two incumbent senators to cook up.
4: McCain was close to leaving the Republican Party in 2001, weeks before then-Sen. Jim Jeffords (Vt.) famously announced his decision to become an
Independent, according to former Democratic lawmakers who say they were involved in the discussions.
In interviews with The Hill this month, former Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) and ex-Rep. Tom Downey (D-N.Y.) said there were nearly two months of talks
with the maverick lawmaker following an approach by John Weaver, McCain’s chief political strategist.
Democrats had contacted Jeffords and then-Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R-R.I.) in the early months of 2001 about switching parties, but in McCain’s case,
they said, it was McCain’s top strategist who came to them
