Republicans in disarray over John McCain's Liberal ways

Article by: Anthony Landaeta Jr posted 6/12/08
McCain has a history of strained relations with the party's right wing, especially on such issues as immigration, tax cuts and campaign finance reform, McCain is a populist; that’s one of his big problems with conservatives. He claims to be for overturning Roe v. Wade, but probably feels relatively secure that it won’t be overturned despite any efforts he may exercise. He can always say he was for overturning it, as did Bush. As far as moral issues go, the man who brought us McCain-Feingold and McCain-Kennedy may bring us, a version of McCain-(Barney) Frank, some bipartisan legislation that inches us closer to a federal amendment protecting gay “marriage.” John McCain, as well as being possibly the most liberal Republican in the Senate, has done nothing as border state senator to ameliorate the burden caused by illegal immigration in Arizona. The entire border has become like a demilitarized zone, and the far left press disregards it. Like Bush, McCain can likely be counted on to tolerate illegal immigration and our incremental move toward a North American Union Free trade agreement, which is already in process. American business profits, Mexican elites profit, drug traffickers profit, and politicians profit. Where’s the incentive for change? The Republican Party only has them selves too blame for their current situation for the last 71/2 years, they have been for Big Government a failed Iraq policy, instead of sticking with the Contract of America which got them into power in 1994. Nationwide polls show how disinterested Republican's are with John McCain. McCain has done very well with Independents and now that Hillary is out of the race, his only hope to bring the Hillary disgruntled voters to his side.
1. He has worked against the principles of the Republican Party, promoting greatly expanding federal regulatory authority in order to combat global warming in ways that would greatly burden the American economy, contrary to free market forces.

2. He has fought the Republican Party to create the Patient’s Bill of Rights, which allowed the government to impose a set of burdensome mandates on insurance coverage.

3. He has undermined the principles of a free market economy by voting for an amendment that would authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services to implement price controls on prescription drugs under Medicare.

4. He has worked against the Republican Party to make a mockery of the rule of law, promoting amnesty for 20 million illegal immigrants.

5. He supports raising Social Security taxes.

6. He has broken with the Republican Party in strongly opposing President Bush’s tax cuts in 2001 and 2003. He also joined leading liberal senators in offering and voting for amendments designed to undermine the tax cuts.

Gang of 14 — the seven Democratic and seven Republican senators who joined hands to find common ground on court appointments. For his efforts at compromise, McCain took a pummeling from the right wing.
