    I don't agree with him on several important points, and I don't think anyone could change his mind. North Vietnamese tortures couldn't. I respect his courage and his service in the Navy. I will be courteous. He has earned respect as a man. Ace

    I am a VN Era vet and I do not respect McCain. Roughly 30% of my HS Class died or were wounded in VN while I dodged the draft on a submarine. There are many that doubt his veracity - just as we did Jess Friggin' sKerry. McLame is the GOP's sKerry.

    My "personal" issue with McCain and his service is he acts like he is the only POW or soldier that was in Vietnam.

    I find it sad how he exploits his POW experience. I respect what happened to him but the way he uses it is just deplorable and annoying. It is almost as bad as Giuliani and his 9/11 card.

    I can't stand his positions, he isn't a conservative at all. But then again, it is hard to find a conservative in Washington DC. His polices on firearms are unacceptable, his views on immigration are unacceptable, and the list goes on.

    I rarely hear McCain talking about his POW days, it's the media that like to talk about it. It seems a lot of Vietnam vets don't like any Vietnam vet that gets any positive notoriety. They are bitter and rightfully so but they are taking it out on the wrong people. jmo

    P.S. I am not McCain supporter in any way, shape or form.

    I don't understand this thread. Did someone's criticism of McCain upset you so badly that you just had to start a thread telling people who they should respect?

    Who disrespected McCain?
    Shouldn't this thread have been a reply to a particular post? Makes no sense on it's own...

    Look for McLame in News and Political alerts. I tried to put my topic there but was rerouted. Having studied the information against his character, I find it lacking while the facts support a great sacrifice for his country. Lets stick to the issues. Ace

    I respect the man for his service. That being said, the man is going to get me drafted and I'm going to have to go fight and die for his "100 year war". While I'm fighting and dieing for his war, I'll be losing my gun rights at home, while he hands the country over to Mexico. He's McLame in my eyes, regarless of his military service.

    I appreciate what McCain went through for this country, but it doesn't mean I'm going to sit back and take this thorough "boning" from my government out of reverence.



    Besides, I don't respect Hitler as a man just because he was a veteran too.
