One of President Reagan's most famous quotes is this:
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?
Unfortunately, Mr. McCain views government as the solution to the problem.
The McCain/Feingold law censors political speech with the ban on issue ads
He opposes the 2nd amendment with his attempt to ban gun shows.
He talked about tax cuts - he voted against them.
He pushed to ban the UFC and pushed for hearings on steroids in baseball
He wants government to more heavily regulate cars.
That doesn't sound very Reaganesque to me. John McCain may be a big fan of President Reagan, but despite his reinventions - he ain't it. McCain - "You sir, are no Ronald Reagan"
More on the convention later.
