While I do not agree with absolutely everything the man says (in fact, I am getting a bit tired of the “I am more conservative than you are!” bit that all Republican candidates go through to get the nomination), I am a supporter of John McCain’s run for the Presidency of the United States. I find that he is the best man for the job running, and he has what limited money and effort I can afford. This blog is even featured on the Blogs_4_McCain Blog.
The most recent Republican debate only reaffirmed my commitment to his campaign. While many of the candidates were willing to pander to the testosterone induced viewers when it came to the torturing of enemy combatants (Mitt Romney: “Some people have said we ought to close Guantanamo. My view is, we ought to double Guantanamo”), McCain stood firm and took what I feel is the unpopular stance in a Republican Primary: that torture is never acceptable under any circumstance.
"We could never gain as much we would gain from that torture as we lose in world opinion. We do not torture people," he said. "It's not about the terrorists, it's about us. It's about what kind of country we are. And a fact: The more physical pain you inflict on someone, the more they're going to tell you what they think you want to know."
It might not jive with every voter, but it is the right and moral position.
