McCain is beginning to appeal to me again
Why has our party, the party of small government, lately adopted the practices of our opponents who believe the bigger the government the better? I'm afraid it's because at times we value our incumbency more than our principlesThere have been many successes, in my opinion, during the recent Conservative upsurge in the Congress, then Presidency. Yet, McCain's comments serve to express a growing concern among many republicans outside of congress. Spending is out of control.
A very large portion of this is defense spending, and the associated wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet, domestic spending has become absurd. The Republican congress sees a problem and decides to throw money at it (i.e. Katrina). Small Government works, and should be strived for.
I have serious disagreements with Sen. McCain, but I applaude these comments
