McCain Supporters Please Share your Opinion Here

hey guys wave

firstly- i'm not tryna start shit, and to be honest, i'll stay out of this thread completely unless someone directs a question at me that requires an answer/explanation. I am starting this thread, however, simply because I dont know any McCain supporters personally (not to say everyone I know are Obama supporters, cuz unfortunately many i know refuse to vote and could care less), and I figured there have to be a few on here, and I'd like to hear from people other than the occasional handful CNN throws in a room following a debate.


thanks guys


NOTE: PLEASE TRY TO SPEAK ABOUT MCCAIN AS HE STANDS REGAURDLESS OF WHO HE'S RUNNING AGAINST. WE CAN ALL THROW SHOTS AT THE OTHERSIDE, BUT WHAT I'M INTERESTED IN, (BELIEVE IT OR NOT) IS LEARNING MORE ABOUT MCCAIN FROM THE PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT HIM. THANK YOU

wave Hi Sir...Everyone knows I'm not a McCain supporter but I just wanted to bump your thread because it'll sink like the Titanic and his supporters will pretend they never saw it, when we ask them on other threads why they didn't answer you. wink

Have a great day! cool

lol yeah, what Hatrina said.

and be sure to clarify whether you would like the McCain supporters to actually say things in support of McCain. otherwise, you'll end up with a lot of what they think about Obama. it's the way every other thread like this has gone.

Maybe no one knows McCain's stance on the issues, he sure didn't mention them much on the debates. lol

Why do you think Hiin is FOR McCain?


I don't know that he is for anyone.

He just doesn't like Obama, or the idea that others do.
I don't want you to think like me. I just want you to think.

I'm not a US citizen. I wouldn't vote for McCain because I don't agree with his ideas, his VP is a gimmick and his campaign an absolute mess.
Still, having followed his career a little bit over the past decades, I know he is a pretty decent guy and far removed from the scary extremism we've witnessed in the BushCo era. He can be naive and impulsive, which makes him a likable human being (outside of his political campaigning anyway), but not President material.

I agree. Hiin and our conservative Republican orgers have only demonstrated time and time again that they're essentially only interested in smearing Barack Obama, and not much else.

Well, here goes nothing...

I support McCain. Mostly because I'm a conservative (to a point). Actually, I tend to lean more towards Libertarian views, but what's the point to vote for any of them? It's not like they would ever win a national election.

I want to make informed decisions on whatever I do. When something's important, I want to do as much research as possible. I actually printed out the candidates responses for each issue from their own websites, and sat down for a few days, reading them and highlighting important things.

I don't think that government should be big, as most dems do. I don't see how Obama could want to institute all kinds of government programs without my taxes being raised. According to www.electiontaxes.com I will be paying more under his presidency than McCain's. Plus it looks like Obama will be putting a cap on itemizations exemptions, which I don't like. We itemize a lot.

I'm also very concerned about national security, and I feel that McCain would be more apt at handling rogue nations than Obama.

I could write a whole essay on why I want McCain over Obama, but it would be too long of a post. Those are just a couple of points.

I'll even admit the most stupidest, shameful, ignorant reason I have for wanting McCain as well: This is his last chance to be president. Obama has many more chances ahead of him. It seems only fair. I know that's dumb, so there's no need to tell me so.

Thank you for not being afraid to share how you genuinely feel with integrity, and without resorting to rhetoric, name calling, innuendo, or smearing. Although we may be on opposite sides of the political fence, I respect your honesty and basically think that you ROCK. nod thumbs up! nod

No, I recall Hiin saying in another thread that being pro-choice is a dealbreaker for him. I think he mentioned he supported McCain because McCain is pro-life.

There might be other reasons, too, but I really think I know one big reason is because McCain is pro-life.


To me, people can support whomever. It seems here a lot of people support Obama, but there might be some McCain supporters who would prefer not getting into a discussion about it since on this site, they seem to be in the minority.

I saw Bill Clinton on Larry King, and he said voters support their candidates for a lot of reasons--even very personal ones. Like some former military might support McCain. Also.. maybe some senior citizens support McCain because he represents "them." There are a lot of pro gun advocates in Wyoming(sp?) supporting McCain because "guns" are a way of life in that state.

Is just personal preference.

I had to come back because I, too, wanted to thank you for the thoughtful and honest expression of your opinion!

At the same time, I understand why people become passionate about their expression, too. I can get this way sometimes because I am a passionate person, and this has both positive but also negative consequences!

Anyway, thank you so much for sharing. Maybe others will feel confident in sharing, too?

Do some research on the growth in government under Bush in terms of dollars spent, employees and intrusive regulation such as FISA that puts more government into your life than ever.

I am not going to bother trying to dissuade you. If you think it's just about being fair and not being capable and intelligent, why should Palin be V.P? That's not fair to all the Republican women such as Governors and Senators who have shown leadership capability, experience and have supported their party to be tossed aside for Palin.
It's not fair to Hillary after all the sexism she endured to turn around and make a sexist V.P. selection.

I'm not saying it's about being fair. I admitted that my feelings on that were stupid. It's purely emotional. I'm intelligent enough to recognize that. I can't help that I'm a very sensitive person and tend to feel sorry for every losing person in elections, even if I didn't vote for them. I just know how much they put into running, and how devastating it must be to lose. Especially so for John McCain because he's tried before, been in politics for a long time, and knows that he can never run again. This will be it for him.

As far as Palin being the VP running mate for him, I don't get it and don't see why he thought she was so qualified over others. But on the side of my emotions and sensitivity and other feelings that don't have anything to do with presidential qualities, I think she's pretty, well accomplished and I would probably be friends with her if I knew her. Would she make a good president of the most powerful country on Earth? Who knows. shrug

that's really cute lol

I feel sorry for people like George W. Bush who actually get elected, but who look like dimwits in the role. lol I feel sorry for McCain because he is looking more and more like a bumbling fool next to smooth Obama, and because he is old. But honestly, I don't think he'll be devastated if he doesn't get the presidency. More like relieved. lol

And for some reason, I feel sorry for Bill Clinton. He always looks so sad.
