John, like us all has many shortcomings.
He always had the opportunity to leave early - under certain conditions- because they knew his family history.
As we all know, he came home with the rest of the POWs.
Anti war as one can be myself, but I also have cancer and have no problem at all wishing him the very best.
Google the following:
Wet Start McCain
Song Bird McCain
POW MIA records sealed McCain
McCain strongly opposed Medical Cannabis (apparently until just recently . . . hmmm)
One possible reason is that his wife is chairman of the 3rd largest anhauser busch distribution company in the country. Described as a "beer baron" because of her role in her family's company which goes back to prohibition days, John has used her wealth as a personal war chest to fund his campaigns when fundraising from voters came up short (often.)
Wife Cindy personally made large donations to the effort to reject AZ prop 205 to legalize recreational cannabis, while receiving a sweetheart deal from the DEA to get out of using a non-profit org to obtain drugs for her prescription pill habit.
Watch the videos of mccain telling wheelchair bound veterans and cancer patients that he opposed medical marijuana in his 2008 and 20012 campaigns for president. When pushed on the issue, his cruel arrogant nasty side comes through.
I don't wish that anyone die, but there are many that feel that way about McCain, and they have good reasons to feel so strongly about him.
His personal effort to permanently seal POW/MIA records from the Vietnam war should be enough by itself.
