John McCain, War Hero Revisited. This is a MAN!

Here is Senator John McCain while a POW in Vietnam. He went through pure Hell when he was captured.

Whatever you may think of him politically, he has served our country in a way that not many have.
He may not be my #1 choice for President, but, I will proudly pull the lever for him on this story alone. Can you imagine Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton having survived what you will read in this story?

God Bless John McCain.

Just because a guy got his goods tortured for 5 1/2 years does not qualify him to be our president. He is a flip-flopper and cannot be trusted. Plus, John Hagee is endorsing him...not good

I would imagine someone like Ron Paul would be a good start. Or, at the very least, someone who cannot be made easy fun of. Change, just like faith in a god, is an illusion that cannot be validated or executed.
