McCain - Anti-American

Did you know McCain not only opposes, but STRONGLY opposes the government's "Buy American" rules? And he opposes them because they're "protectionist" trade policies:

“I firmly object to all ‘Buy America’ restrictions, as they represent gross examples of protectionist trade policy,” McCain said on the Senate floor in 2005. “From a philosophical point of view, I oppose such policies because free trade is an important element in improving relations among all nations, which then improves the security of our nation. Furthermore, as a fiscal conservative, I want to ensure our government gets the best deal for taxpayers and with a ‘Buy American’ restriction, that cannot be guaranteed.”
Except for one problem, John Mc-Hates-America: Those "protectionist policies" are what used to make America economically strong. Being against those has made the US weak, made big business more powerful and less patriotic, and has made potentially enemy states (like China) incredibly powerful.

And this is GOOD for America?! I'm sorry, John, but you're a McIdiot.
