Scum of the Century Nominee
Plenty of money that he got through dumping his first wife and marrying a rich beer heiress, so he can pay anything for his own medical care, but he does not give a God damn about the health of anyone else.
The "maverick" has spent a decade now talking a good game and then voting along with the most corrupt people in the country on every issue, so we have no reason to believe that he would not get up off his sickbed for nothing but to stick a dagger in the backs of tens of millions of his fellow Americans. And here he is again, betraying the American people, even though at this point in his life it cannot mean a damned thing to him.
He is today's poster child for the utter evil that is all that the Republican party is about. There is not a shred of decency or humanity in a single one of them, and they are now well on an almost irreversible path to destroying the United States. And behind all their bullshit patriotic talk, they know this perfectly well, but they just don't give a damn.
We hear plenty of (perfectly justified) talk these days about how Donald Trump does not care a bit about anyone but himself. We need to remember that every other Republican is exactly the same. They may not be so stupid that they can't keep their mouths shut about it, but they are all the same corrupt, criminal, satanic people that Trump is.
And too bad the gutless Democratic party, with very few exceptions, has spent the time, at least since Reagan, cowering in the corner and refusing to say out loud what is going on in this country.
I now believe that it is overwhelmingly likely that the United States is going to cease to exist, within the lifetimes of many people alive today, devolving into two successful industrial democracies, one on the West Coast, and one in the Northeast, separated by a vast swathe of territory, sparsely inhabited after vicious sectarian wars, and governed by a whole host of Taliban-like warlords or Christian ISIS-style Caliphates . The only sad thing about this is that the two surviving modern states are going to have to spend vast sums to maintain armies to repel the endless attacks by the crazed people in the center of the country; something which they will easily be able to do, given the incompetence at governing demonstrated by American right wingers, but only at the cost of a good part of the wealth that could otherwise be dedicated to building better societies.
Anyway, John McCain, my only wish to you is that your wealth keeps you from dying until you have had a chance to spend a couple of years in screaming agony, as some sort of just recompense for the tens of thousands of people that you are sentencing to die of cancer while you have nothing but the finest care.
