Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools

John McCain is running for the Senate again. He will undoubtedly give us the same empty rhetoric he has for 34 years. Why “empty” you ask? Let’s look at the results we are left with after his never ending series of promises over the years.  His tenacious efforts, “hard work” and “fighting for us” have left us with:

  1. Our least prepared military defense on 70 years although he chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee;*
  2. $18,000,000,000,000.00 in debt and continuing budget deficits as far as we can see;
  3. Failed VA hospitals;*
  4. Failed VA system in its entirety;
  5. Reduction in housing allowance for troops (bill now in Senate);
  6. Failure to secure the border - a fundamental requirement for national security (“build the dang fence”);*
  7. Terrorists in every state;*
  8. Sponsored the CREST Act (spends $100,000,000.00 to process and import 5,000 South American illegal aliens under the guise as refugees from their country into the USA; Prohibits DHS, HHs and Border Patrol from telling anyone where the aliens are being transferred to; etc.);
  9. Unconstitutional NDAA that takes our liberty as guaranteed in our Bill of Rights;
  10. Allowed taking $1.3B from our troop medical co-pay benefits to fund bringing Afghanistans into the USA;
  11. Sponsored the unconstitutional McCain-Feingold Act that took our right to political free speech just before elections (passed just in time for a McCain re-election & later ruled unconstitutional);
  12. Higher taxes;
  13. Holding meetings with terrorists in Syria;*
  14. Militarization of non-enforcement federal agencies such Dept. of Edu., Ag Dept., Forest Service,  and many more;
  15. Militarization of local law enforcement departments (city & county);
  16. Very bad trade deals with foreign countries resulting in loss of jobs and huge trade deficits;
  17. Federally centralized control of local education compelled through extortion with our own money by the federal government;
  18. Failure to oppose the endless list of unconstitutional acts and violations of law by Obama, many of which lay the groundwork for a strong  impeachment case;*
  19. Complete failure to protect and preserve the 10th Amendment in the Constitution he took an oath to uphold (Arizona’s state’s rights have been trampled and eviscerated over the last 34 years – he is supposed to represent Arizona in the Senate, not the Feds);
  20. The largest number of Americans not working (95million) in 40 years;
  21. The failure to demand an investigation on who at the White House ordered the destruction and/or alteration of government DHS records collected to connect the dots on Islamic terrorists;*
  22. Failed to perform his constitutional obligations by repeatedly and continuously voting to confirm (not veto) bureaucrats and judges that are not fully veted, not qualified, and do not believe in the principles of our Constitution;
  23. Enabled and participated in the creation of a federal bureaucracy so large he can’t control it, nor does he try to stop it from violating our constitutional rights on a daily basis – has failed to hold them accountable or in compliance with the Constitution or control their spending;
  24. He has done nothing to stop (might even say enabled) – the unconstitutional overreach by federal agencies to take our liberty; for example the unconstitutional abuse of the Clean Water Act to federally micro-regulate cattle ponds and dry washes for the sole purpose of taking private property rights;
  25. He has failed to stop (I’ve not heard an objection or filibuster ) the illegal transfer of funds appropriated for a specific purpose to a specific agency by Obama to an executive favorite program or slush fund; 
  26. Participated in the congressional  request for the IRS to investigate the Tea Party groups;

 

There are more examples but you got the idea so I’ll close with this fact;

  1. It was discovered, but seldom reported, that John McCain (“Song Bird McCain” as the POW’s knew him) conspired with John Kerry to block the investigation and recovery of Viet Nam POWs.

This is a record of 34 years of failure. It is insanity repeated 4/5 times more than needed. The results have always been the same. Why should we expect anything different this time? How many of these bills did he use his procedural ability, as an individual senator, to block in the Senate? Can’t he get other senators to oppose these actions that take our liberty and are destroying our country?  If not, maybe he’s not the man for the job. When he says how hard he is working and that one person can’t do it all – it only serves to prove he can’t and has not done the job he promised and we elected him to do. This is a record of a proven failure.  As one might say, “You’re Fired.”  

*Denotes the circumstance resulted in a decline/weakening of our national security

Keep The Republic.
