Sen. John McCain was one of the driving forces behind the Senate Immigration Reform bill. He recently told a meeting of the AFL/CIO — democrats — that amnesty is the keystone of the bill, and he supports it. More recently he said that if the 2016 presidential race were between Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul, he just wasn’t certain who he would support. Oh, really?

Since Sen. McCain ran that desultry campaign for president in 2008, where he got his butt handed to him, he seems much more intent now on building his legacy, doing what’s best for him, and the country and Arizonans be damned.

He’s no military expert, despite his claims to the opposite. He has no foreign relations knowledge or experience. He’s not really an expert at anything except being in the Congressional club. But we expected him to represent the people that elected him, and he has continually failed to do so.

Remember, Sen. McCain, in the 2008 campaign, ran an ad that included, “Just build the danged fence.” Now, the fence isn’t important. What seems to be important is adding 12-20 million new Democrat voters through amnesty.

We don’t need any more RINOs; we already have plenty.

As a lifelong conservative who served 20 years in the military, and spent a year in the mud and muck of Vietnam, I don’t appreciate someone like John McCain turning his back on me and my values. You work for us, Senator; you don’t rule us.

Mr. McCain, you need to retire, now.
