    If your going to use the weak socialist argument, might as well be consistent.


    McCain voted against the 2001 Bush tax cut of 1.35 trillion dollars and again in 2003.

    McCain Voted in favor of 700 billion dollar wall street bailout, the ultimate re-distribution

    Did you forget about McCains 300 billion dollar morgage buyout plan?

    Voted Yes on embyonic Stem sell research expansion. I wonder how much that would cost?

    Voted NO on prioritizing national debt reduction below tax cuts in 2000 (I guess budgeting was NOT his priority that year)

    Voted YES on 1998 GOP budget in 1997 (Spend spend spend)

    Voted YES on setting aside 10% of highway funds for minorities & women. (Mar 1998) Is this not a social program? Well, your tax dollar are paying for it....thats for sure.

    Sponsored bill on drug testing for major league sports. (May 2005) how much would this cost?


    $5B program for 3-year test of school vouchers. (Jul 1999) wow, 5 billion dollars of tax paid vouchers? Looks like re-distribution to me.



    Who is the real Socialist?



    What I do like about mccain though, is he is not like Palin

    He and his running mate are completely opposite on drilling (mccain voted to save the alaska wildlife refuge while palin wanted to drill on it. McCain is totaly against banning gay marriage, Palin is totally for it.......)

    So, as you can see I am not McCain bashing here because I like what he has done in some cases. Palin is what killed his ticket.


    Anyway point is, the stupid socialism argument needs to stop. It is the weakest of all McCain arguments and makes you look stupid. All you have to do is look at his record to see that he has voted many many times in so called "re-distribution" so stop with the bullshit.

    Bernie Sanders.

    Everyone else is just on the end of a smear attack from the right.
