Dear John McCain

Don't know if it'll do any good, but this was the ACTUAL letter I sent John McCain in response to the mass e-mail I received from his campaign, and I'm sure most of you got the same e-mail...

God help me for not being able to keep my mouth shut :) And God willing...some clerk or some staff member will print his letter and possibly, in a perfect world, John McCain might actually read it :)



Senator McCain:
I doubt YOU will receive this directly...but hopefully with my heartfelt respect...someone will print it for you and MAKE you read it. It DOESN'T get any more real than this...and if you really intend to WIN the election...you better take it to heart, and with your GREAT SERVICE to this nation...I shiver as I muster the dared assumption that I can talk to you this way...but I've seen your beautiful Mother in the crowds...and if you were but little again...she'd probably write the same except that she is in awe of you right now, as I am with my sons when they accomplish great deeds...

With all due respect...you made a fatal mistake! You don't know me, but I am fairly active in our Republican (Conservative) movement here in my swing state of Nevada. I am also a small business owner of two companies...just mom & pop companies...but employ 22 Nevada'ns and am responsible for not only ourselves, but 22 other families as well.

I was a volunteer at the Palin event when she came to Nevada. She actually came and shook my hand just before she boarded the plane "home" and thanked me for my time. See THIS LINK. Right now as I write this letter...so far...the ONLY great thing you've done to seal a seat in the big chair at the White House was to select Sarah Palin as your VP. I was shocked when you made the announcement because I had NO IDEA who she was...or WHERE she came from. Most of us had banked on Romney. But, after research and obviously after seeing her in action...BRILLIANT choice!

However...AGAIN Senator McCain...with all due respect (AND I MEAN THAT FROM MY HEART)...YOU CANNOT ride her coattails to the oval office. I'm gonna talk to you in this long winded letter just like our hockey Mom Sarah talks to all of us (maybe harsher)...but how she might talk to you and WILL in the small office down the hall if you land the White House...with all DUE respect...and...I don't believe in saying something behind your back I won't say to your face...so I'm publishing this letter on my blog too...nobody hardly reads it...so no worries Senator McCain.

The "bailout" was a BIG SHAM! It was NOT a "rescue" and quit trying to tell all of us...WE THE PEOPLE...that it was! If you wish to have an Obamanation...I can see where one might call it a rescue. A true Conservative would NOT. Obama is a great orator, can't deny that. YES WE CAN / HOPE / CHANGE...you bet your bottom dollar...that's what our nation is HUNGRY FOR and what we desire almost more than food or water! BUT...informed patriots, the 95% of Americans that ARE middle class that ACTUALLY LISTEN...(a LOT of us DO listen)...DON'T WANT SOCIALIST CHANGE! WE...just us little (or bigger) people DON'T WANT, or NEED that kind of change.

This e-mail I'm responding to is horse shit. So sorry to curse at a true Patriot...but I bet the drill sergeant or the Vietnamese talked to you worse, and you hailed strong through that battle. I am SO disappointed that THE MAN who rose above most Republican's first or even second choice to be our candidate, THE MAN that so honorably suffered torture and devastation that most of us cannot even imagine cannot just come out on a stage and TELL US ALL THE FREAKING TRUTH!

Haven't you politicians figured out YET that "folks"...remember US...talk to each other every day on a truth to truth level. This little plan you outline in your e-mail below is again crap! I've never missed a mortgage payment on my home in 10 years. Due to the sagging economy (before we knew Armageddon was coming)...in June we just purchased a new home...our dream home. Bought at a good time...didn't sell our other home...rented it to our eldest son...a win/win fiscally and family wise. I've managed to make now TWO mortgage payments ON TIME each month since... My home values are declining too. My home I just bought in June is now worth $10,000 less than I paid for it and I bought it WELL. SO WHAT! I don't LOSE on it unless I SELL IT!

You "brilliant" politicians now want to "re-structure" mortgages for "late-payers" / "people in foreclosure" so that THEIR MORTGAGES REFLECT THE ACTUAL CURRENT VALUE OF THEIR HOMES????? Read your own e-mail below...sounds to me like that's what you think is good. Reward the bad and punish the good. You're Mama didn't raise you that way Senator McCain. Do you realize what a Pandora's Box you are opening? Ever hear of a MASSIVE CLASS ACTION SUIT? You want to LOWER the PRINCIPAL balance of mortgages for folks that DIDN'T PAY to the current market value. I PAY MY LOAN EACH MONTH ON TIME at the value I purchased my home at...realizing that markets fluctuate and my home will again be worth more one day.

If you "re-structure" late or no payers of mortgages to the current market value in your "rescue" plan...DON'T YOU THINK MILLIONS OF RESPONSIBLE AMERICANS will expect OUR mortgages to be restructured to OUR current market value? Think about it Senator McCain...WE ARE THE PEOPLE you are guaranteed to receive profit from! Re-structure or NOT...those that cannot pay their mortgages NOW...most likely WON'T pay their mortgages when the principal is lowered! Or is it principle? You guys (Democrats / Republicans) make it seem like it's a 20% sale at Coldwater Creek!!!

Senator McCain...you should have had the (excuse me again) balls to be the Conservative you preach to be. Since you just so whimsically voted to spend 700 BILLION dollars of OUR money...you should have at LEAST guaranteed those of us that actually DO make our payments the same justice of having OUR mortgages lowered in principal/principle to the current market value. WE work every day. We wouldn't have taken YOUR RESCUE money and gone on vacation! We would have actually APPRECIATED it...and mark my word...those WITH money (not me of course...I'm just middle class)...but those who CAN will FIGHT for the right to be "rescued" too!

In Nevada...we have three Congressmen/women and two Senators. ONLY ONE (sits on the finance committee by the way) had the cajones to vote NO! Only ONE of our legislators has the Conservative stamina to actually represent us WE THE PEOPLE on all issues...this latest one is just another one of MANY.

Sadly, Harry Reid is one of our Senators. Sadly, Harry Reid has no clue. YOU SENATOR MCCAIN HAS A CLUE! For God's sake Sir...you spent YEARS in a prison camp in a jungle. YOU make the lame show Survivor a TRUE REALITY! You just cannot tell me that a man that's been through all you've been through cannot see the forest for the trees!

IF YOU WANT TO WIN THIS ELECTION...start talking to us like the people WE ARE and STOP calling us "My Friends". Just little ole' we the people. DON'T BE AFRAID TO SAY NOOOOOOOOOO! Don't be afraid to say yes when necessary. You guys micro-manage stuff to the point of insanity while all of US sit at home and quiver.

I've "heard through the grapevine" that you have a reputation for not being so computer savvy. So what! You're 71 years young and we don't care. BUT you have "people" that are. For Christ's sake...Google something as simple as the mere word "truth". The Wikipedia article (not a great fan of Wikipedia) gives the PERFECT POLITICIAN'S definition of TRUTH. CLICK HERE A whole LOT of pretty words that SAY NOTHING!

Dude (for the young), Mr. McCain (for the middle), Senator McCain (for the respectful yet older), JOHN SIDNEY MC CAIN (for your Mother)...GET A GRIP! If it's BAD...just come on TV and tell us EXACTLY what it is. No doom, gloom, or fear mongering...just state it! If it's GOOD...come on TV and tell us the good...DON'T elaborate on how much more wonderful it is than it isn't.

Again...with ALL DUE RESPECT Senator McCain...before the next debate (your last chance)...do this for me. If you could do this ONE THING FOR ME (and all Americans)...we would appreciate THIS. Just before the debate next time...find a private moment ALL TO YOURSELF...find a room and sit. Close your eyes. Painful as it might be...take yourself back to your WORST MOMENT from your time at the Hanoi Hilton. Think about the worst day you EVER had there. Think about all the truths you just wished you'd spoken to those you loved (or hated). While the Viet-Cong were spitting in your face, breaking your shoulders, telling YOU the son of an Admiral...how it WAS going to be...THINK & breathe quietly. Calm your soul with WHATEVER you found in that jungle that made you KNOW that NO MATTER WHAT...at THAT DARK MOMENT...you were one of US...we the people. Remember on that darkest day how important TRUTH and JUSTICE and FAIRNESS was to you. Remember that all you wanted was to remember the smell of your children, the taste of a cheeseburger, the wonder that "was" your paycheck still being sent to your family or not...did YOUR mortgage get paid while you HAD NO WAY to know if it was for sure? REMEMBER that normal thought as a man would your friends/family just assume you were dead, did you still have a wife or girlfriend, or was she somewhere else now...you had no way to know...or were they anxiously awaiting your return each and every day...and remember that each and every day turned into YEARS.

REMEMBER THE SIMPLE THINGS...REMEMBER THE SIMPLE CALCULATIONS OF NUMBERS that must have gone through your head during that time...FIVE YEARS of it! I cannot even imagine that place. I cannot even imagine what you truly went through. BUT I KNOW THIS...I know what I THINK I would think about in a time like that...horrid...awful...but yet...beautiful imiginations of what a perfect world would be like. REMEMBER THAT PERFECT WORLD you imagined in your dark moments. You are but one mere step away from FINALLY making THAT PERFECT WORLD a reality.

Senator McCain...YOU AND ONLY YOU can pull this off. Those speech writers and those tele-promptors you have in front of you ARE NOT YOU...screw them! Get on TV and speak to us as if we were all having dinner together. If you hate the potatoes au'gratin...say it. Get my drift? You have an experience as an American that NO ONE EVER IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION can bring to the oval office. FORGET what "they" tell you to do. Do what YOU want and need to do. You guys in Washington are FAR TOO WORRIED about political correctness and the "what if's" You of all people on earth had FIVE YEARS to go over EVERY WHAT IF KNOWN TO MANKIND... Use THAT thought process to bring you BACK to US...WE THE PEOPLE...that and only that will gain you VICTORY.

ALL THAT SAID...let me THANK you for your service to our Country and be one of many hopefully to congratulate you to achieving what every Mother would secretly wish for her son at the moment he is born..."Wonder if HE could someday be the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES?"

Do it John...DO IT...we just need USA...WE CERTAINLY CANNOT STAND NOR AFFORD AN OBAMANATION!!!! If you stand up and BE THAT GUY...we'll ALL be there right behind you, beside you, and in front of you leading the way. As Nike says it...JUST DO IT!

Senator McCain...

Subject: Homeowners in crisis need relief now
My Friends,

Millions of Americans on Main Street are feeling the effects of our current economic crisis largely brought on by corruption and greed at Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Wall Street. Our next president must come into office with a plan to address the very root the failing housing market.

Last night, during my debate with Senator Obama, I announced my plan to fix the root of our problem and I'd like to share a little more with you today.

If elected president, I will direct my Treasury Secretary to implement an American Homeownership Resurgence Plan to keep families in their homes, avoid foreclosures, save failing neighborhoods, stabilize the housing market and attack the roots of our financial crisis.

America's families are bearing a heavy burden from falling housing prices, mortgage delinquencies, foreclosures, and a weak economy. It is important that those families who have worked hard enough to finance homeownership not have that dream crushed under the weight of the wrong mortgage.

For those that cannot make inflated payments or their mortgage exceeds the value of their home, mortgages must be re-structured to put losses on the books and put homeowners in manageable mortgages.

This Resurgence Plan would purchase mortgages directly from homeowners and mortgage servicers, and replace them with manageable, fixed-rate mortgages that will keep families in their homes.

By purchasing the existing, failing mortgages the resurgence plan will eliminate uncertainty over defaults, support the value of mortgage-backed derivatives and alleviate risks that are freezing financial markets.

I am ready to lead our country out of this financial crisis and I am ready to work with anyone and everyone who will help. Together, I know we can work together to find solutions for these challenging times. Please do your part today and spread the word about my new plan by forwarding this email on to your neighbors, friends, family and coworkers. Thank you for your time and support.


John McCain

P.S. Homeownership represents the very core of our American economic system. This is not the time for politics. We must move aggressively to provide relief and stability for all Americans.
