    And last of all: http://brighthall.aol.com/2008/07/3...ys-he-wont-lie/
    McCain lies about lying.

    On to the racism! So, in 2000, McCain said "I hate the gooks, I will hate them as long as I live." I will grant you that if anyone has a reason to hate based on race, this man has it in spades. The question is, is this kind of racism what we want in a president? Just because it's source is in his torture, it does not mean that it will be any less harmful while he's the president. If this is the man who is going to shape our policy with regards to North Korea, I most certainly do not want him to be racist. If you'd like more information on how racial slurs by the president can hurt the American public, you can look here: http://eyeteeth.blogspot.com/2008/0...nt-matters.html

    In addition to his lies and racism, his policy stances are incongruous, harmful, and often contradict themselves;

    It's been said before... if you tell a lie often and loud enough (to middle America) they will begin to believe it as truth. Hell, why think for yourself?

    I now understand how fascism could be so widespread and contagious among the masses - letting politicians manipulate their fears and insecurities with lies.
