McCain has no chance (against any Democrat) in the General Election

Well here you have it folks, the most Pro-War, 'stay the course' guy still in the race is the Republican nominee. Congratulations to the Republicans on compromising their values and platform to ensure they will lose, not only in November, but their party identity.

McCain is an exact copy of Bush as far as the war goes, "Stay The Course", "The Surge is working", "Another 100 Years of War". Ironically McCain got the majority of the Anti-War vote, which speaks volumes about the voter intelligence and ability to research candidates. God bless our country for allowing even the uninformed to vote. As far as domestic issues, Republicans might as well have voted for a Democrat.

McCain is for open boarders and amnesty (even though he SAYS he is not now, do you believe that?), not very Republican. He has no real knowledge or experience with the economy, which he admitted in the California debate and just did a lot of name-dropping. Voters across the board have stated the economy is the biggest issue this season. Thanks to a suspiciously timed "terror threat", McCain might have gotten the boost he needed to distract voters from his lack of any other Conservative or Republican credentials.

Here is some strait talk; McCain will not win the general election against any of the two Democrats left. Republican polls have been showing McCain beating the Democrats, how can this be? The Democrats are running a 'change' campaign as well as an anti-war campaign (which they are not really anti-war, like McCain).

70% plus of Americans are against the war and against any expansion of war. The only real anti-war candidate has been marginalized and mocked all through this race, which is Ron Paul. Here is the interesting thing; if Ron Paul were pro-war he might have gotten the nomination because he has all of the Republican platform needs and desires.

By the way, Ron Paul is for constitutional and against unconstitutional war there is your difference. Can you say "Rule of Law"? Ron Paul has been stalwart in defending the Constitution and civil liberties, economics is his passion, always has been for lower taxes, balanced budgets, and smaller government. Besides, who would be better to solve the health care problem then a doctor (and take that issue away from the Democrats)?

It might be a moot point at this time but while McCain and the others were arguing who would wield the Reagan mantel and if he would endorse any of them, Republican voters failed to support the ONLY candidate that had actually been endorsed by Reagan, again Ron Paul. So where do you think most of those Ron Paul supporters will go? Definitely not "Keating Five" McCain, Not "Open Boarders" McCain, not "100 years of war" McCain! I predict a landslide victory for the Democrats (unfortunately).

Last election it was between two Yale men, this year it will between the socialists.

The Republican Party should now change their party name to the War Party because there are no Republican values left to speak of. The only thing they can trumpet is a failed foreign policy that damages us in the long run. War is what they want so war is what they will get (regardless of party now). So continue with your debt ridden Keynesian Economics that will only bind us all into the 'global system', feel good that you support the war that was unconstitutional and is never ending, congratulation on the destruction of our sovereignty and civil liberties, and thank you for the compromise.
