    This coming November we have a chance of getting out from under the horror that has been republican rule

    and it's even more important to us as gay men that we do not vote for John McSame

    Here's a few of his greatest flip-flop moves

    * McCain went from saying he would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade to saying the exact opposite.

    * McCain went from saying gay marriage should be allowed, to saying gay marriage shouldn’t be allowed.

    * McCain criticized TV preacher Jerry Falwell as “an agent of intolerance” in 2002, but then decided to cozy up to the man who said Americans “deserved” the 9/11 attacks.

    * McCain used to oppose Bush’s tax cuts for the very wealthy, but he reversed course in February.

    * McCain supported a major campaign-finance reform measure that bore his name. In June 2007, he abandoned his own legislation.

    * McCain opposed a holiday to honor Martin Luther King, Jr., before he supported it.

    Maverick huh?

    I agree that Bush has had a pretty horrible presidency by his own doing, although he didn’t behave like a conservative Republican. I've been a Ron Paul guy through most of this. That aside, I got a kick out of this:

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>GQJock !!!! you sure got this right !!!! McCain also flip flopped on torture !! at one time he was a thorn in bush's side over it, but on the last vote to put the CIA in line with Army regs on interrigations, McCain voted with bush to "not limit the CIA's options" , this guy McCain seems to have made a "deal with the devil" (bush) in some of those meetings they had before McCain announced definately that he was going to make another run for the Presidency. He must want it awfully bad !!!

    It's neither. McSame's just not used to NOT being able to reinvent reality as you go along. It's worked for Bush for years, but the world is now more reactive to this 'strategerie'. He also doesn't get that anyone with a computer can call up practically anything he's ever said or done and compare that to what he's said or done LATELY.

    That's all well and good, but the real question is this: Was Fuzzy Wuzzy a woman?

    Why should Senator McCain please you and your pet issues? You wouldn't vote for him anyway. Maybe if you would he wouldn't be doing the flip flopping. It's called "Hunting Where the Ducks Are".

    Senator McCain's issue is national defense. Since the Democrats are all for the national defense ... of the enemy he does what he can and what he has to, to win. I see it as noble. I really despise the Christian Taliban wing of the party but at least they don't hate America.

    Your rationale for why we should not vote for Senator McCain is the precise rationale why we should. There are plenty of us in the LGBT community, we're just weak and divided and petty, and Democrat. No wonder we don't get anywhere. Vote Republican, become a block of the Republican party and we will have power.

    If you don't believe my solution, how has yours worked so far?

    Just because a political party is not, pro homosexual. This does not make them bad, or bad for the country.

    It's not what your country can do for you. But.......what you can do for your country.

    Putting your own selfish wants aside, and vote for the better of America, Australia.

    As a white Indigenous Aussie. Six generations born to Oz I be! Yes it drives me nuts at times, that new comers to Oz, children of new comers to oz, grandchildren of new comers to Oz; all new Australians, and not even an Aussie, like I.

    Get rights I do not. Yet One would not vote for a politician, a political party, just because it promised One equality. The same rights new comers have/get. No as I put my vote to the better of Oz first, and not my own selfish wants.

    Just because a political group will not support homosexual rights, this does not make em bad!
