McCain, Anti-American?

From: "StarPD" <>
Date: Tue, 11 Dec 2001 20:11:28 -0700

Cc: "Hon John Shadegg" <>, "Hon. Jon Kyl" <>, "George Bush" <>, "Dick Cheney" <>
Subject: Your ANTI-American, unconstitutional actions

Dear Senator McCain, as one of your constituents, I feel obligated to ask you a pointed question:

How does it feel to have hillary rodham as the ONLY co-sponsor of your un-American, unconstitutional anti-gun bill (S890), in which you collaborated with the openly leftist Senator Lieberman? I can't imagine a greater embarrassment! To deny American citizens their right to life, property and security, including the defense of these along with that of family and loved ones in concert with two of the most known left wing extremists in Congress is a disgrace to your State, your constituents, and your country. What could you have possibly been thinking?

No wonder there have been several recall efforts against you, fortunately for you, interfered with only by the more important tragedy of 9-11. Are you even the least bit aware of the chaos and turmoil you have caused the Republican Party and it's supporters? Have you the slightest conscience with which to stop your self-serving efforts to contravene the Constitution, and especially the Bill of Rights? Your "Incumbent Protection" bill was recognized by far more than you give credit for having enough intelligence to do so, and your disdain for American citizens in the majority of your Congressional activities is an open insult.

Another point: Whether you realize it or not, and you should MAKE the time to educate yourself of the this most important and serious issue, so-called "stun guns", regardless of maker's hype, are NOT effective in stopping a human. That's why police and soldiers don't carry them. The law of physics says you cannot disable a human with a 9 volt battery, no matter how you manipulate the tiny amount of wattage. Only a GUN, loaded with frangible bullets will STOP a threat to aircraft security. And as an ex-pilot, you should be aware of the untruths in the many myths about airframe damage from something as small as a bullet hole anyway. As an example, how many Presidential and congressional bodyguards carry only "stun guns" to protect their charges? I suspect they can be counted on less than one finger. And *I* know that you know all this, Senator! Arm pilots NOW, or watch the airline industry in America go bankrupt. I will never fly on a commercial airline again unless and until both the cabin aircrew AND CCW permitted passengers are NOT illegally prohibited from exercising their right to self defense. We, the American people already have seen with our own eyes the inability of government to provide for our security. Stop punishing us, the American CITIZENRY for the governments incompetence and failures by further ensuring our inability to defend against hostile acts, and contemptuously making boarding aircraft an unbearable ordeal!

President Bush's call for "bipartisanship, whether you realize it or not, was NOT a call for political treason to your party. Rather it was to motivate Republicans to truly negotiate REASONABLE legislation with Democrats, as opposed to helping them shut down Republican values and eliminate Republican political power in Congress, which is apparently your interpretation. Maybe next time you entertain a fellow Congressional legislator at your summer retreat, you might choose if not a Republican, at least an Independent like Ron Paul, or a Democrat that is NOT dedicated to the destruction of the Bush Administration. Surely there must be at least one with influence which you can solicit help in achieving some stability in political America.

In closing, I strongly urge you to read the Bill of Rights, the "Federalist Papers", the "Anti-Federalist Papers", and last, but certainly not least, your sworn oath of office. STOP wasting your efforts, and besmirching the Republican Party by your efforts to disarm the taxpaying, voting CITIZENS in direct, open and defiant contravention of the Bill of Rights. Know Sir, that I am NOT alone among your constituents that feel this way. Think about it.

George Harris
Phoenix, AZ, 850xx

The essence of constitutionalism in a democracy is not merely to shape and condition the nature of majorities, but also to stipulate that certain things are impermissible, no matter how large and fervent a majority might want them. George Will
