I like McCain’s heroism, but not his positions on the issues.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on January 15th, 2008

Here’s a good summary of what John McCain stands for. If you’re interested, you’ll find this article interesting.

I’m not sure there’s anyone in the Republican race that I can get fully enthusiastic about.

How about you?

    I agree about McCain. I actually preferred him back in 2000 – if he ran on the same line I would probably vote for him now. Unfortunately he seemed to sell himself out.

    However, there is one candidate in the group who I felt was most deserving of my support: Ron Paul. I haven’t seen a guy with such hard-held principles and integrity run for such a high office before. The man is absolutely consistent and sensible in his policies and has not backed down on them in his 20 years (10 terms) in Congress – even when he stood alone (which was more often than not the case).

    I follow the issues very closely and consider myself to have a solid understanding of our state and the reasons why we are in this state. That said, of all the candidates on the stage (on either side) Ron Paul seems to have the most extensive understanding of the issues and conditions, and what’s more is that he provides the clearest and most logical solutions to the problems we face.

    To be honest I didn’t think I would be voting this year. Last January I figured it was just going to be more talking heads spewing the same rhetoric only to break their promises when they made it into the White House. I was most pleasantly surprised when I first heard Ron Paul speak, and from there it was a daily affirmation of how genuinely truthful and accurate this man is. He took me from wanting to be completely uninvolved to actively campaigning for him and his message – one of restoring liberty, of fairness, of personal responsibility, of realistically promoting peace, and of restoring our Constitution to its rightful place once again!

    I’ve never been so proud of my country – thanks in no small part to Ron Paul that pride will never go away.

    I’ll second that statement. I’m going to wait and see who’s still standing when the time comes.

    I think he is an honorable man and a good hearted individual. He may not be as “conservative” as a lot of Republicans would like, but I’d vote for him. His age and record are working against him in that he’s a known quantity. Younger voters view him as “old school”, which is not trendy or aligned with the “change” mantra. You know what you get with McCain and if you didn’t like Campaign Reform, or his Immigration Position, or his involvement with the “Gang of 14”, then you have something to complain about whereas the other candidates can make more “promises” without the record showing previous opposing positions.
