I think John Mccain plays too many mega man games.

John Mccain calls himself a maverick.

All of the new Mega man games including the ones in the Mega man X series talked of mavericks as being villains. Mega man Zero featured Zero fighting Mega man and a bunch of mavericks. I think that John Mccain wants to act as one of the mavericks, and, wants to appear powerful, and will eventually become evil, if President, like the maverick Sigma featured as the main villain of Mega man X.

The reploids (the Democrats) are going to end up fighting mavericks (the Republicans) and the mavericks may end up getting too powerful. And there might be rebellions.

Here is the story of the Mega man X games. I think they accurately resemble the situation here.


[edit] Story

The instruction manual for Mega Man X contains "The Journal of Dr. Cain", in which the story leading up to the events depicted in the game is narrated through excerpts of Dr. Cain's personal journal. According to the journal, Dr. Cain, an archaeologist searching in the year 21XX for fossil records relating to Mesozoic plant life, accidentally discovered the ruins of a robotics research facility that had once been operated by the legendary robot designer Dr. Thomas Light. Among the ruins, Dr. Cain found a large capsule which contained a highly advanced robot the likes of which the world had never seen before. This robot, Mega Man X, had human-level intelligence and emotion. Fascinated by the genius of Dr. Light's design, Dr. Cain studied X and Dr. Light's few remaining notes. With X's help, some months later, the first "replicate android" or Reploid (in Japan, Repliroid), a robot who can think, feel, learn, and grow exactly like a human, was made. Within the year, the design had been standardized and Reploids were being mass-produced.

However, with the free will given to a Reploid came the possibility of criminal activity previously unknown to robots; such rogue Reploids were said to have "gone maverick" and were later referred to as Mavericks (in Japan, Irregulars). As the public outcry against the few Maverick incidents became too great to deny, the government stepped in, and under the advice of Dr. Cain, formed an elite military police organization called the Maverick Hunters. The Hunters would capture or disable any Reploids that posed a danger to humans, provide damage control at Maverick uprisings, help with disaster recovery, and perform other tasks as needed.

For the leader of the Maverick Hunters, Dr. Cain designed a very special Reploid, one with a very advanced thought system. This Reploid, thought to be immune to whatever defect of manufacture, design, or social conditioning caused Mavericks, was named Sigma. Sigma headed the Hunters for about three years before the very head of the Maverick Hunters himself became a Maverick, taking the vast majority of the other Hunters with him. Sigma seized control of a small island and drove all human occupants out. Claiming that the humans were "inferior" and that they were limiting the growth and potential of Reploids, he called for his followers to begin a massive extinction effort. It seemed, with only one remaining Hunter able to fight (the mysterious Zero of Unit 17), that all would be lost and human extinction would become inevitable. But X, guilt-ridden at having helped design such a ruthless and warlike race, decided to join forces with Zero and attempt to stop Sigma at any cost.

I just think the situation here is accurately representing the situation presented in the Mega man series of games showing a fight between one group the reploids and another group that has gotten too powerful beyond control.

I think that John Mccain is stealing his ideas from a video game. John Mccain is trying to be the Sigma of the Republican party. Sigma slaughters the reploids and treats them unfairly. John Mccain will want to do that with his politics... and he even calls himself a maverick... Sigma and all of the robot villains from the Mega man X series were also mavericks.

I think he probably means it more like what the Beastie Boys mean when they say renegade in their song "Renegades of Funk".

Except without the funk, I suppose. I haven't personally heard John McCain get down with it, so I wouldn't really know.

Renegades of Funk is by Afrika Bambaataa and Soulsonic Force. You're probably thinking of Rage Against The Machine's cover, but getting them mixed up with the Beastie Boys is still pretty poor.

And to think my country's very existence as we know it rest's on possibly this mans vote.

Mcain stole maverick from megaman.

A mega what? I do believe you are reaching a tiny bit too far in searching for a conspiracy here. I'm pretty sure most adult McCain supporters don't know very much about this video game.
I'm very sure that I don't.

What have they put into the Kool-Aid now? Scary. This is one reason very young people shouldn't necessarily be involved in political campaigns.

My advice: Go outside and get a bit of fresh air, my dear.
