McCain is one of our senators here in Arizona. Unfortunately, I was one of the millions of conservatives who did not vote in the 2008 because I could not stomach a vote for McCain. All that did was help to get Obama elected. My bad.
He ran a wishy-washy presidential campaign in 2008, but the campaigns for his senate seat here in Arizona are vicious. That is why he wins in Arizona. Too bad he was not smart enough to do that in 2008. He might have received more conservative backing.
I am a very strong advocate of a 2 or 3 term limit for both Congress and the Senate. It seems that the longer they are in office, the more they lose touch with reality.
Rand Paul may be ready for a run sooner than you may think. After all, the most unqualified candidate in probably the last 100 years won the presidential election in 2008. The 2012 election showed us that people vote more for a personality and a pack of lies rather than a history of actual accomplishments. I did vote in 2012.
Rand is getting praise from both liberals and conservatives over his filibuster. Every American should be concerned whenever we have a president who repeatedly ignores and violates The Constitution. It is a direct breach of The Constitutional to issue a kill order on Americans on American soil without due process, regardless of who they are. That is in The Constitution to prevent presidents from becoming dictators who can order military strikes on adversaries, as kings once did in Europe.
