Battling Mis-information, Part 3

It was recently brought to my attention that I haven't blogged about mis-information being spread about McCain. Well, that's a good point. I haven't. So, I spent some time looking for where lies have been spread about the Republican nominee....

I can't find any. Even his campaign isn't refuting what is being said. It's hard to say no, when there's proof of a strong yes. The only things I've even come close to considering mis-information have been due to McCain's own mistakes or his changes of heart/mind. (I guess I can give the guy a little slack, he gets really confused sometimes: "McCain Trips on Spain".)

Maybe you have a particular issue you're worried about, well check it out for yourself here: http://www.ontheissues.org/john_mccain.htm.

During the Republican primaries, he was the middle-right candidate of choice. Now it seems that he is bent on the same militaristic politics and controls as we've seen the last eight years. While some of his social policies vaguely blur into the realm of sanity, his intentions in the area of military conflict are worrisome.

Remember, the President of the United States of America can not directly affect legislation (that's what Congress does), but the President can use his executive privilege to order military actions with repercussions lasting for the span of decades or longer.
