John McCain: Traitor or Moron?

John McCain exposed himself as a fellow traitor to the US constitution with this response to the US supreme court decision on Guantanamo Bay detainees.

“The United States Supreme Court yesterday rendered a decision which I think is one of the worst decisions in the history of this country,” McCain said to applause from a crowd of supporters in New Jersey.

“Our first obligation is the safety and security of this nation and the men and women who defend it,” he continued. “This decision will harm our ability to do that.”

No John, the first obligation of our government and of it’s president, as stated in the oath of office. is to uphold the constitution of the United States in all instances. And the function of the Supreme Court is to make judgements based on their reasonable interpretation of that document. That’s the law. It doesn’t change depending on which country our current enemy comes from or what warfare techniques they choose to employ.

If you want to be President of the United States, it’s about goddamn time you started acting like one instead of a too old Alzheimer’s patient who can’t make up his mind. Our country needs leadership, not another two bit oil whore like the current megalomaniac. And part of that leadership, indeed the most important part of that job, is to uphold the constitution that this country has depended upon and grown successfully under for over 200 years.

You don’t understand the economy, you don’t have a clue about the needs of poor and working class Americans, you publicly change your stance on issue after issue and don’t even realize it, and now you have publicly said that you support violating the law as set forth in the US constitution. You also seem to believe that you are better equipped to interpret the constitution than the justices that have been appointed to do so. That’s not called being presidential, John, that’s called being a traitor and a moron.

    Count me as one that doesn’t agree with this particular Supreme Court decision.

    In my opinion constitutional protections exist for crimes committed within the US borders. They do not exist for combatants taken on the battlefield in another country.

  2. expatbrian Says:

    The decision, as I understand it, was based on the location of the detainees and the fact that the constitutional protections apply to everyone and anyone on American soil. Guantanamo, being an American military base, is considered, at least by the Justices to be American soil. I agree with that.

    I also cannot think of any reason, nor has any been given by the government, for not allowing these detainees access to some form of legal representation and the court system. What’s the fear?

  3. Buffalo Says:

    I could be wrong, but I believe they have had access to legal representation. I was also under the impression they were to be tried in military tribunals.

    Moving from foreign soil to American soil, in my opinion, doesn’t merit them any extra rights.

    I view their status as something akin to prisoner of war.

  4. expatbrian Says:

    As far as I know, with the exception of the Japanese internment camps, the court has always held that anyone on American soil is subject to the laws of America. Among those laws are constitutional guarantees to access to representation, speedy trials and the court system in general. The detainees have enjoyed none of those. At least until now. That’s why this decision is noteworthy.

    If they were considered prisoners of war by this administration, which they are not, they would be afforded rights under the Geneva Convention and US Military Code. Avoiding this designation is exactly why Bush chose to call them enemy combatants. It bypasses the rules of war in their treatment.

    In my opinion, we simply invaded a sovereign nation and the fact that those people, whether they be civilians or organized groups, have a perfect right as citizens of their country to fight back with any means available to them. Americans would expect and demand the same rights if our shores were invaded and our country occupied.

    Spoken like the Ignorant American you claim to be. The constitution, and the justice system it outlines, has historically applied to all people who are on American soil. It is the reason we try so hard to bring criminals, even those whose crimes were committed in other countries but against the US, back to the US for trial. Guantanamo is American soil.

    The Geneva Convention applies to us and our behavior with prisoners of war, regardless of what country we are in and it does not only apply to uniformed personnel. The VC were not uniformed, nor part of the regular army of North Vietnam. Not to mention the fact that then, as now, the American military regularly targets women and children.

    The internees are nearly all from Iraq, not Afghanistan. We invaded Iraq, a sovereign nation based on false premises. Indeed they were contrived premises, and even the administration has admitted to that. Getting rid of Saddam as some kind of justification for the havoc we have caused there is absurd and illegal. The world is full of despots as bad or worse than Saddam.

    Holding prisoners, whatever name you want to give them, without charges and without any sort of representation is exactly what this country is supposed to stand against, not for. It no longer does and because of that, we have put all Americans on foreign soil at risk.

    I am well aware of the status of the Japanese Americans who were rounded up and imprisoned for no legal reason at all. America has always been good at oppressing anyone who is not a white anglo saxon. We have been doing it since the birth of our nation.

    I can only assume by your ridiculous Bush loving position that you have never spent one day in a combat situation.

    John knows alot about being a well fed, well cared for and friendly prisoner. However he seems to not understand the rule of law when it comes to prisoners under U.S. protection. It is clear these people have rights that we hold self evedent to belong to all people under god, even these ungodly xzcxf! That alone makes john and every person in the chain of command who has fought against thesee rights during time of war a tory trator that should be hanged. or maybe not, until convicted under the law after all.

    I think that John McCain and Sarah Palin and all who stand for tyranny in this country should be hanged for their crimes against the U.S. and to all the people who still represent the constitution and defend america against it’s real enemy, not Iraq, not Iran, but the American government itself, it is the militia’s duty to abolish the government if it becomes corrupt, which it has become. The militia in 24 hours could storm the capital of the U.S. and hang every offical for their crimes. Thomas Jefferson quoted ” If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will be in as sorry a state as the souls who haved lived under tyranny.”

  8. Brian Says:

    To do so now would probably be a mistake in that it would throw the election into turmoil and possibly create a situation of martial law under which Bush could stay in office. Best to let the election proceed and allow Obama to take office.

    But, in the unlikely event that McCain wins, I agree with you 100%. It will be time for the people to rise up and abolish that government and replace it with one that can get the country back on the track of constitutional law and order instead of republican party lawlessness and disorder.
