Finally the next time you give an interview to a German magazine stand up for your country and its principles, just a little. Most Americans I know would appreciate it.p>But sadly, Lisa, I think you and I both ask too much of the Senator. br> — Jim Karr br> Blue Springs, Missouri /p>
Why I think our country will be better off in the long term if John McCain is not elected president:
1. I suspect he will compromise with Democrats to raise income/FICA/Medicare taxes (on the rich) to avoid an upcoming, media created, fictitious, budget crisis.
2. He will compromise with Democrats to enact some form of universal health care (for his legacy, and to make the issue disappear much like how the prescription drug crisis for the elderly disappeared after Bush’s plan was passed). The health care union will eventually control health care and vote exclusively for Democrats, who will continually pass favorable legislation for their financial security.
3. Our southern border will be ‘enforced’, but not secured. All the problems associated with people and narcotics entering our country illegally will continue to be suppressed. The ‘racist’ accusation will haunt republicans as Hispanics begin to overwhelmingly support Democrats. The liberal media will convince Mexican-Americans that all their problems are due to evil republicans. McCain will compromise with Democrats giving illegals the right to vote (for Democrats) and will issue a blanket presidential pardon to illegals immigrants. But no to amnesty!
4. Only liberal Supreme Court justices will be replaced by Hillary or Obama. McCain will compromise with Democrats to appoint only justices Dems approve of.
5. All candidates won’t mind if another major terrorist attack occurs. They’ll blame Bush and use the issue for political gain.
6. Global warming, energy independence, public education, political bribery (oops, I mean campaign finance), and many other issues won’t matter.p>Basically, things are going to get worse, no matter who is president. I expect a Dem-controlled congress will not be replaced with a GOP congress in 2010 with McCain in office. The people will blame and replace, in mass, whichever party controls the White House in the next presidential election. Let’s look forward to 2012 and beyond. br> —

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
