McCain attacks Canadian and European health care
American Health Care is not the best in the world. This is a fact but McCain and Republicans don't like " Facts ". They only believe in their ideology of a " dog eat Dog " mentality. Of course they make an exception when it comes to giving out $700 Billion to Bailout Corporations and Financial institutes. or a trillion dollars to fight an unnecessary war.
Shouldn't Health Care Be A Right -As a Canadian it seems odd that McCain & Palin and The Republicans believe there is something evil about making health care a right for all American citizens. But then again out Holier Then Thou Evangelical Neocon Stephen Harper is out to chip away at our own Health Care System inorder to prove by underfunding that it is a bad system.
MCain believes that somehow an American citizen should be faced with debt and financial ruin due to medical bills. The well off or the rich like MCain's family are able to afford massive medical bills without going into debt.
According to McCain and the Republicans good quality Health Care is to be preserved as a privilege of the rich. They seem to argue that otherwise what's the point of being wealthy if every citizen is guaranteed good quality Health Care.
This I guess is partly due to their belief in Social Darwinism and the survival of the fittest so that Americans who are not able to pay for the best of Health Care are left to suffer and die younger than the more fit members of a Republican Society.
So McCain and his followers believe those who are unfit should die and decrease the surplus population as Scrooge would say in " A Christmas Carol".
More at http://therealnews.com/c.ph... Is McCain right when he says Canadian and European health care not as good as US? Pt. 2
Despite the fact the US continues to rank poorly in worldwide healthcare standards, John McCain like many, maintains that the United States healthcare is the best in the world. The Real News Network spoke to Steven Lewis, health policy and research consultant from Canada, Dr. Don McCanne of Physicians for a National Health Program, and Dr. Steffie Woolhandler from the Harvard Medical School. Comparisons with other countries on costs and quality still leave the United States low in health care standards amongst rich industrialized nations.
The racism and smears & McCain Palin campaigh helping to legitimize White Supremacists Organization.
US officials FBI etc. rarely investigate the various connections of White Supremacists to other supposedly more mainstream organizations ie militias, KKK etc.or their financial backers or politicians who support them - as in the Bombing in Oklahoma city.

Arrest of Neo-Nazis in Obama Assassination Plot a Reminder of Enduring White Supremacist Culture in US
Is a potential Barack Obama presidency bringing white supremacist subculture out of the shadows? Following the arrest of two neo-Nazis for plotting to assassinate Obama, we speak to investigative journalist James Ridgeway, author of Blood in the Face: The Ku Klux Klan, Aryan Nations, Nazi Skinheads and the Rise of a New White Culture.

Government cover up of a wider conspiracy in the Oklahoma City bombing
reports of plot beforehand were ignored by ATF etc. Need to reopen the case to discover the truth.
Given the past arguments Bush ,Cheney, Condoleeza Rice & McCain argue that cutting a detainee's penis with a razor blade is not torture since it would not lead to organ failure or death. But British officals seem to disagree:
CIA Officers Could Face Trial in Britain Over Torture Allegations Friday 31 October 2008 by: Robert Verkaik, The Independent UK
Senior CIA officers could be put on trial in Britain after it emerged last night that the Attorney General is to investigate allegations that a British resident held in Guantanamo Bay was brutally tortured, after being arrested and questioned by American forces following the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington in 2001.
The Home Secretary Jacqui Smith has asked Baroness Scotland to consider bringing criminal proceedings against Americans allegedly responsible for the rendition and abuse of Binyam Mohamed, when he was held in prisons in Morocco and Afghanistan.
The development follows criticism of US prosecutors by British judges who have seen secret evidence of torture committed against Mr Mohamed, including allegations his torturers used a razor blade to repeatedly cut his penis. The Attorney's investigation is expected to include allegations that MI5 colluded in Mr Mohamed's rendition. Mr Mohamed, 30, an Ethiopian national and British resident, was arrested in Pakistan in 2002, when he was questioned by an MI5 officer.
And McCain in desperation to give the appearance of wide spread support buses in 4,000 school kids to his rally. His rallies looking more like that of some desperate dictator in a Banana Republic.
McCain Busses in 4,000 School Kids to Fill Crowd Sam Stein, Huffington Post at 11:36 AM on October 30, 2008.
This happened less than a week out from the election, when the heat of the campaign should be drawing record crowds.
The most cringe-worthy political moment of the day, so far, came when Sen. John McCain called out for his new buddy Joe the Plumber to stand up at a rally in Ohio, only to be greeted with confused silence. Joe the Plumber wasn't there.
But that rally featured another embarrassing moment, one that illustrates a far more troubling dynamic for the Republican ticket. The McCain campaign actually had to bus in school kids from the surrounding area in order to fill the event.
As reported by MSNBC:
A local school district official confirmed after the event that of the 6,000 people estimated by the fire marshal to be in attendance this morning, more than 4,000 were bused in from schools in the area. The entire 2,500-student Defiance School District was in attendance, the official said, in addition to at least three other schools from neighboring districts, one of which sent 14 buses.
This happened -- as if a reminder were needed -- less than a week out from the election, when the heat of the campaign should be drawing record crowds.

More difficult to vote in the US than in most other countries.For instance 2 million or more Felons not allowed to vote -only Armenia has such a draconian unfair rule against Felons who have served their time .
