With John McCain being hailed as the likely nominee of the Republican Party I have been getting quite a few more emails from my pro-peace cohorts here in Arizona. Luckily Matt Welch has taken the time to write a book on John McCain called McCain: The Myth of a Maverick"McCain: The Myth of a Maverick" and avaiable for $18.45 (hardback) from Amazon.com. I hope to have the opportunity to read this book so I can see how wise an insight it offers on John McCain.
Until then I will likely just visit http://whoisjohnmccain.name/ and see what video and audio jewels John McCain has offered since he started singing "Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran".
If you favor John McCain or oppose John McCain, it behooves any American voter to learn all you can about him and his positions. I watched a panel discussion of John McCain and certainly came away from it knowing much more about John McCain than I did before watching the show.

I am always 100% in favor of peace as the best option. As such I try to support any anti-war effort that comes my way. Fiveyearstoomany.org is one such group. They are working to support hearings on the war as well as local events such as town halls across the country in the March 13th through 19th time frame. I encourage everyone to take a look, this effort certainly looks worthy of support.
Wayne Allen Root has been out spreading a libertarian message for 9 months now. While I still have a few reservations about his positions and policy, I think that he is certainly worth a look.
I hope that he continues to spread a message of limited government in his campaign for president and beyond. I still have greater faith in the positions held by Christine Smith.
