McCain for President: Or we're really screwed

Now that Mitt Romney has dropped out, it's time to bite the bullet. Confederate Yankee opines:
I don't like John McCain. He is no better than my third-place choice for President, and I cannot drum up any enthusiasm to vote for him in November.

But I will.

[snip]

I don't like John McCain, but I will vote for him. I won't stay home in protest. I won't write in another candidate, either. This election is too important for that.

The eventual Democratic nominee, whether it is inexperienced committed socialist Barack Obama, the most liberal voter in the Senate, or the woman of a thousand scandals, Hillary Clinton, who preemptively declared that any report of good news coming out of Iraq would be a lie, is unacceptable as President. Both promise higher taxes, a far more intrusive and meddling federal government, and defeat in the war against Islamic extremism. This is the actuality of the "change" they refuse to clarify in their vacuous campaign speeches.
Read the whole thing.

it's always confused me that the right shrieks with (somewhat justifiable) indignance when anyone accuses them of "fascism". and yet they don't seem to bat an eye when tossing around terms like "socialist" or "communist" when referring to democrats.

That might have something to do with the fact that most lefties, all Lefties, and most Democrats are socialists (i.e., what's mine is theirs) with totalitarian (i.e., Communist) tendencies (i.e., and I'll send guys with guns to take it from you).

It is also painfully true that some folks masquerading as conservatives are nothing more than corporate statists. Like Huckabee.

hmm. i once spent about 4 months in cuba, where i had an opportunity to take a class in "political economy" at the university of havana. among other things i learned that socialism and communism are characterized by state ownership of the "means of production" of goods. having looked pretty closely at the various democratic platform statements, i can't find any support for nationalization of private industry. even the most radical democratic healthcare reform proposals seem to intervene primarily on the demand side of the equation.
