Sending McCain a Message







File under “Ideas I Wish Were Mine”
David Hinz has posted an intriguing idea at RedState; and I am adopting it and inviting you to do the same. 

Though many Conservatives, this one included, are unhappy with McCain as presumptive Republican POTUS nominee, it is what it is.  Ultimately, four to eight years of McCain will be better for the future of this nation than four to eight of either Clinton or Obama. 

However, the problem with McCain, as has been laid out on this site, and many others, is found in his clear proclivity for throwing Conservatives under the bus, while at the same time happily making leftward compromises with Liberals.

One option Conservatives have, though, is to try to send McCain a message.  We can do this by not voting for him, to be sure — but this then puts the nation in the hands of the Democratic nominee.  So, Hinz suggests another option.  One that, if we stand together and all implement it, will send a very strong message to McCain and the Republican Party.

Says Hinz:
“I propose that each and every Conservative demonstrate his or her support for Senator McCain for President by purchasing a “McCain for President,” bumper sticker, or better still, two. Then we should all affix those bumper stickers upside down — as a clear message to the senator. As a former Navy flier, Sen McCain will understand that message only too well. As explained below, displaying an ensign or the American flag upside down is a message of danger. It means, “…a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.””

The message is clear:  America is in danger.  We are in danger of going away from our Founding Principles.  We are in danger of Leftward movement, politically — a movement that pulls us away from liberty and capitalims, and toward more government control.  The message is that we support McCain with much trepidation; not because he is the best man for the job, but because he’s the best of what’s available. 

Incidentally, Hinz also suggests expanding from just bumper stickers:
“Let’s start a movement. Can you see people at rallies holding up McCain signs upside down, and the MSM asking why?”

I can see it.  We have 6 months before this election.  The time to send a message is now.

  1. You’re absolutely right, it is what it is. But honestly, McCain could come out tomorrow for universal health care and open borders and I would still vote for him over Obama or Clinton. I only say this because, like Hinz, I also think this country is moving dangerously closer to the left each year. And I worry that the onslaught of Obama supporters — who by the way, for supposedly being the most educated demographically, they seem to be just malleable kids — is going to be unstoppable this November.

    McCain cannot afford to piss off the base, because he’s going to need every stinking vote he can get, but there’s nothing he can do at this point to make me not vote for him.

  2. Oh, and by the way, found your site randomly, and think it’s great.

    Linking you, if you don’t mind.

    Great post.

  4. One of the mods at our site posted this recently. I love the idea and hope Conservatives everywhere catch on and run with it. Watching this country head the way it is is painful for me. We’re moving way too far to the left.

    I’d also like to say that I just recently found your site thanks to a link at StandStrong. Now I try to make sure I visit as much as possible.
