I am no fan of the idea of voting for "anybody but". However when it comes to elected officials who voted to tax and borrow so that the deflating financial bubble didn't crimp the vacation plans of the financial industry by voting for TARP I may have to reconsider. John McCain is clearly easily suckered.
His Republican opponent in the upcoming Arizona Republican primary was such a lackluster Republican that he was defeated by Harry Mitchell in 2006.
I agree with Glenn Beck's statement that it isn't enough for a Republican candidate to "...just to not suck as much as the other side."
The bare minimum a candidate must support is an audit of the Federal Reserve. Jim Deakin does manage this.
I hope that Arizona will produce a Libertarian Party candidate for US Senate because the US government really needs to be brought to heel. The US Army is still in South Korea decades after the war there ended. US taxpayers should not be funding South Korea's national defense.
