Here we go again. Just when I was going to try to cut this candidate some slack.

Author and investigative journalist Jerome Corsi says some critics of GOP presidential candidate John McCain are concerned about a non-profit organization he founded in 2001 that has received funding from left-wing donors like George Soros and Teresa Heinz-Kerry.
Dr. Jerome Corsi recently published an article in WorldNetDaily which focuses on the Reform Institute, which Senator McCain (R-Arizona) used to promote his political agenda and to provide compensation to key campaign operatives between elections. The best-selling author says critics are questioning McCain’s conservative credentials in light of the fact that prominent leftists have donated heavily to this organization.
“It’s shocking to think that George Soros and Teresa Heinz-Kerry have [had] this kind of funding hook to John McCain for so many years,” notes Corsi. “I think it explains how this foundation backed and promoted McCain’s various leftist positions, as in campaign reform and in immigration where he wanted to open borders.”
Corsi says even though McCain was forced to sever his formal ties with the Reform Institute in 2006 in the wake of a controversial cable television contribution, the fact that he was willing to accept money from individuals like Soros and Heinz-Kerry reveals his “true colors” as someone who has always championed leftist causes.
So last week Governor Mitt Romney “heartily” endorsed Sen. John McCain. Is it because Gov. Romney IS politically expedient? Is he now “flip-flopping” his allegiance “to pay his own dues” to the Republican party?
I’m at a loss. Yes, there are some good thing about Sen. John McCain. But just like with Pres. Bush, there are a lot of very sneaky things going on behind the smoke and mirrors scenes – oh like the suppression of free speech (McCain-Feingold), opening up the borders (McCain-Kennedy). Who doesn’t want to save the earth (McCain-Lieberman) but our nation is so in debt that we can’t afford even the interest of our loans to China. From Wikipedia:
His 2006 rating by the Almanac of American Politics (2008) on Social Policy is 46% conservative, 53% liberal. (2005: 64% conservative, 23% liberal.) McCain also has an 83% rating from the Christian Coalition, which indicates many socially conservative views such as voting yes on $75M for abstinence education, yes on recommending Constitutional ban on flag desecration, and voting yes on memorial prayers and religious symbols at school.
Maybe I heard this on Glenn Beck last week, but what better way to push through a North American Union than by suppressing our economy, opening the borders, squelching free speech and doing all those other nasty things that get rid of our Nations sovereignty.
This conservative has not been won over yet. This conservative is deeply worried. This conservative is deeply troubled over the fact that here in Ohio, I haven’t even had a chance to vote for this primary and that I’m left with the bottom of the barrel. I do have a set of core, abiding principles I live by and this candidate isn’t one of them.
