"Republicans are a minority voting in a Republican primary!" -- Tony Snow

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Just heard that on the O Riley show.

The caption says it all, doesn't it.

He just added "This was really a protest vote against John Engler" as I was typing this.

McCain claiming that he "brought people into the fold" is like some idiot claiming that he reformed drug addicts because he talked them into taking real jobs -- as pharmacists.

Five'l get you ten that next election there won't be ANY "open primaries" in the GOP anywhere.

On another thread you said:

"The problem as said in that article is the 'open primaries'. You can't have a 'Republican primary' if you let anyone in who wants to vote. McCain won a bogus primary. In a real Republican primary, he would have won 25% of the votes. He's a loser. L-O-S-E-R. The Dems know that, and they decided to play tricky and pick their opponent. They picked wisely because they picked a L-O-S-E-R for the GOP. When the hothead L-O-S-E-R McCain gets into the REAL primaries he will lose his angry ass."

What exactly do you hate about McCain so much to be filled with so much animosity? What specifically makes Bush so good and McCain so bad?

I'm absolutely fascinated by the antagonism that so many Republicans [not all - but a vocal minority] feel towards McCain ... a fellow Republican.

What's the deal?

Well Cheryl,

I would venture a guess that Vern's incessant nattering probably has a lot to do with it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Did I get enough exclamation points like Vern does)?

-- J (Y2J@home.comm), February 23, 2000.

Yep, Vern's a real irritant, but he can't take full credit.

Others have pointed out lots of "problems" with Senator Strangelove, so I'll just chip in with a couple of sticking points that clinch it for me.

He's a globalist. He's made a conscious decision to make a hard left turn. He resurrected anti-RKBA legislation. His "campaign reform" will silence the "little guys" voice. He talks big about "reform", but is wined and dined by lobbyests. He's a liar, and a hypocrite.

The S&L scandal.

Neal Knox:

McCain Has Strange Friends

By Neal Knox Feb. 12 update -- Former New York Mayor Koch -- who rammed through the city's "assault weapon" registration law, which his successor, David Dinkins, used to confiscate those guns  has joined the swelling ranks of Democrats saying they "would be comfortable with" John McCain as President.

And McCain is on the cover of all three major news magazines this week.

Even if I didn't know that McCain was largely responsible for last May's Republican cave-in on gun laws, his bedfellows and admirers would be making me extremely uncomfortable.


Editor's Note by Weldon Clark

McCain breathed new life into the Juvenile Justice Bill's anti- gun amendments, after it had been KILLED. McCain and 4 other moderate Republicans said they would vote for the Lautenberg gun show ban bill unless the Republican Leadership brought up a bill. They did and it passed the Senate.

McCain told Neal Knox and the present Second Vice President of NRA that he would never forget what NRA had done in the 1994 election. He then cosponsored the McCain Feingold Campaign Finance bill. This bill would prevent all independent groups such as NRA, Christian Coalition, Right to Life and other conservative groups from doing effective election campaigns. They could not report the voting records of candidates 60 days prior to the election. ALL elections would be tilted toward anti-gun liberals.

George W. Bush did say in the debate last night if you took the guns from law abiding citizens only the criminal would have guns.


Democrats to Raid Republican Primary

Paul Goldman (former Virginia Democratic Chairman) writing in The Roanoke Times is urging democrats to vote for McCain in the Republican Party Primary in both Virginia and South Carolina. In Virginia he is urging that democrats sign the GOP loyalty oath at the primary voting and then violate it in the fall by voting for the democratic candidate. Mr. Goldman says "On Feb 29 Virginia democrats can save Social Security, upset Gov. Jim Gilmore, help Sen. Charles Robb defeat George Allen, enrage the Rev. Jerry Falwell and, last but not least, perhaps guarantee Al Gore or Bill Bradley's election in November."

Editor's note: Do not listen to democratic lies. The Republican plan saves Social Security. The Virginia Governor is a Republican.

The primaries are a staged event in the first place. They are paid for by the Democratacic and Republican parties in each state, and guess what they get to count the vote. There is very little, if any, state government oversight. All of the spin on T.V. is just for your enjoyment to make you think your vote counts. Gore, Bush or McCain, flip a coin it won't make a difference. Think back to 1992 a young governor from Arkansas was speaking out about the then president Bush and how he was pandering to the communist Chinese government. He said he would be tough on trade and bring back our jobs and put an end to this trade deficit with China. ( 7 bil. then 60 bil. now ) Several years and campaign contributions latter Billy Klinton this very week is asking congress for permanent most favored nation status for China. It's realy very simple:: if you like the way government rules your life and want more of the same only bigger, better, new and improved keep voting for Democrats and Republicans. If you want to take back your government you will have to look to the third parties.
