An open letter to the GOP RE: John McCain

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Let me cut to the bottom line – if McCain is the Republican nominee I will not vote for him for the following reasons:

He is not a true conservative and no longer supports traditional Republican (Reagan) principles – he has become a lefty-lite.

He does not support making the Bush tax cuts permanent

McCain-Lieberman on the environment

McCain-Feingold on free speech

McCain-Kennedy on amnesty

McCain-Kennedy-Edwards on patient ‘rights’

His hatred of evangelical Christians

His temper and his ego

His unwillingness to appoint strict constructionists to the Supreme Court

His endorsement by the New York Times – he works well with liberals because he is one.

His position on Gitmo detainees

His standing with Kerry against the Swift Boat truth

Let me be even more clear. If McCain is the nominee I will contribute no money to any GOP candidates at any level. I am a life long Republican and a card carrying Reagan conservative. My party has left its base and deserves to lose and lose big time if its leftward drift continues.

I will either vote for Hillary and see the blame for our country’s demise fall entirely on the Democrats, or I will sit out the election. But I will never vote for McCain, electability be is not the issue, conservative principles must hold sway.
