Mark Tapscott caught Sen. John McCain, R-AZ, on the Imus Show responding to criticism from Talk Radio's Michael Graham? Here's the key quote:
"He [Michael Graham] also mentioned my abridgement of First Amendment rights, i.e. talking about campaign finance reform....I know that money corrupts....I would rather have a clean government than one where quote First Amendment rights are being respected, that has become corrupt. If I had my choice, IÃ¢ÂÂd rather have the clean government."
We will never have a clean government. There will always be corrupt elected officials. The First Amendment allows us to speak up against corruption in government. Without free speech, Americans would be suffering under a repressive,tyrannical, corrupt government. It is absolutely amazing that a Senator would even think of such a thing. It's one really good reason not to vote for McCain.
