Meghan McCain Wants GOP to Go Left or She’ll Leave
5 years ago

Meghan McCain wants Republicans to wake up or else she just might leave the party.

The Republican daughter of Sen John McCain, who famously blogged from her father’s presidential campaign bus about fashion on the campaign trail, is saying the GOP’s positions on social issues are outdated and irrelevant.’I don’t fit into the traditional Republican box that the ‘wingnuts who have hijacked my party think all Republicans should,’ she wrote in an opinion piece.

In an opinion piece penned for the Daily Beast, McCain notes that if the Republican Party does not adapt and start showing signs of social tolerance the GOP will not survive and that if she does not see signs of moderation on social issues she ‘will consider registering as an Independent in 2016.’ The realization hit her election night as she was choking back tears over the Mitt Romney’s campaign loss to President Barack Obama.

‘It’s not like he’s a close friend,’ she wrote. ‘Looking back to last week, I think that I was mourning something else. For the last four years, writing on this website, I’ve been calling for the Republican Party to come to terms with reality and modernize. Last Tuesday, Mitt Romney lost—and he lost big. As Republicans, we lost again. I felt sad, exhausted, beaten down, and heartbroken. It was the first time that I considered that the Republican Party, which I love so much, might die.’

I do think the GOP has to give on the illegals a bit.  Gingrich had a good plan and they need to look at that.  Hispanics are the fastest growing population in America and are not natural Democrats.  They are deeply religious and anti abortionist.

Giving their people a pathway to citizenship would remove them from the Dem ranks and bring them into the GOP fold.  Most are devoted Catholics - and they would support your anti abortion cause but their first priority in voting this time was your immigration laws.  With the economy second and abortion third.

Cam, you've got a point.  But there's still a pretty serious issue regarding illegals that needs to be dealt with.

I wrote to my elected officials a few years ago and told them I would support giving any illegal a free pass if they can can prove 5 years residence, 5 years work, no arrests or warrants, no food stamp or welfare usage and wants to be an American citizen enough to get a real SSN and take the oath, denouncing any and all other citizenships.  I would also give citizenship to any child in their family who is currently in school.  By proving the past 5 years it prevents anyone from jumping the border and trying to claim status today.


All others need to go through the process we have set up, which is much more lenient than any other country!  Anyone who has broken any of our other laws must be deported, not put in our prisons for us to feed and clothe.  Anyone with gang tatoos, needs to be deported.  Anyone caught from a driving violation needs to be arrested on the spot and deported if they can't prove the above.

I have no problem dealing with those who have been here all their life or who have become good neighbors with civil actions to help them stay.  But I will not bend when it comes to those who are here illegally living off the sweat of others.  We need good citizens!  Keep them, deport the rest!

As for Megyn McCain, she should have a lot more respect for what her father went through for this country!  Let her on another GOP bus, then drop her butt off in the sticks!  We don't need her kind of change or her kind of people in our party!

I keep thinking of those who are going through the legal process in order to become legal US citizens!! WHY should we put those on hold while the ILLEGALS are made legal!?!? Before ANY illegals become legal I think they should make every person who has been on the waiting list to become legal US citizens in before anyone else...period!!!!!
