Why I no longer respect John McCain
"Principle" is a very rare virtue in Politics. However, that integrety I 'thought' I saw in John McCain, the Republican Senator from Arizona. Infact I even termed John McCain as a 'respected' Republican. But opinions change with a person's action and so did mine.
McCain joined Bush endorsing, supporting and accompaning the President on Airforce One saying that Bush had a better plan for the War on Iraq. Election is over. McCain now says he has absolutely no confidence on Rumsfield and on the Bush Administration, on fighting the war in Iraq. Hellooooo!
I wish Senator McCain would have been a man of principle who would have stood for his COUNTRY and not for his party!

January 6th 2005 can make or break the Democratic Party!
Strike your hammer when the iron is hot!
The democrats from Howard Dean to other Democratic pundits had been scratching their heads as what went wrong on November 2, 2004 that their Presidential candidate lost. The answer still remains unknown. With speculations from moral values to war president never lost, the true analysis of Kerry loss may remain unknown for a long time.
Whatever the reasons maybe, 1 out every 5 voters in the Presidential election of 2004 believe there was some kind of fraud committed. That is a staggering amount given National media decided to collectively ‘black out’ the coverage. Even New York Times decided not to shoulder the responsibility of launching a full investigation on Ohio Voter Fraud. However, we saw the rise of the ‘next generation’ media, Bloggers! Series of blog sites came into the forefront to report the election fraud issues. Brad Blog
is one such rising star in the making.
America is divided into two parts Democrats and Republicans. Be it Red State or Blue State the nation is still divided in more or less two equal political hemispheres. With 2 out of every 10 national voter today is convinced that there was election fraud. And the number skyrockets to 4 out of 10 Kerry voters believe that there was Fraud committed on election night. These are very serious charges, brought to light by series of circumstantial evidences. Reporting
on this can be found all over the Internet.
The Democratic Party now stands at the threshold where it can make or break itself on January 6th. It can show that it is a strong party that is not afraid to ‘stand up for it’s people’ and their just causes. Bringing the ‘voter fraud’ in Ohio and Florida on January 6th, the party can regain respect not only from Democrats but from Republicans who feel themselves to be betrayed
. However, if the Party like John Kerry fails to contest the Presidential Election 2004, the Senators will do a great damage to the future of their party. They will wrongfully ignore 40% of their party base. Half or more of this 40% base will not show up in the polling booths next year or 2008. Already a very fragile party will get fragmented. The Blue states will start evaporating!!
And that is my point!
