Rowly -- I am confident that McCain as President would have yielded a slightly smaller version of the catastrophe the country faces. It's hard to pinpoint exactly where the process started, but TR and the early 1900's Progressive movement is as good a place as any. Here is a relevant quote ... "And it happens with this as the physicians say of consumption, that in the beginning of the illness it is easy to cure and difficult to recognize, but in the progress of time, when it has not been recognized and treated in the beginning, it becomes easy to recognize and difficult to cure." -- N. Machiavelli from 'The Prince' (circa 1513 CE)

jmonaco,

There was nothing I liked about John McCain and he was not my candidate of choice.I did not vote
FOR him as much as I voted AGAINST Obama !! I would have voted for almost anybody at that point !! Sarah Palin made the medicine go down easier.

If you or Chris 102 prefers Obama to McCain...you must be happy with what you are experiencing now.Congratulations! At least neither of you can prove McCain is a Marxist or an anti-American .

Stop worrying about the ‘fiscal cliff.’ Spending cuts would feel therapeutic after watching Standard & Poor's and Egan-Jones downgrade our credit rating and seeing President Obama add $6 trillion to the national debt. The way to avert another recession and massive inflation is to eliminate the unconstitutional Federal Reserve.

There are two ways for politicians to “pay” for their spending. They can be transparent and raise taxes extremely high across all income levels. (This is not happening because politicians know Americans would riot.) Or, they can be sneaky and “monetize the debt,” which means allowing the Federal Reserve to print money...
