McCain dropped the ball; Obama lied

Sen. John McCain lost the presidential election because did not acknowledge the implications of Barack Obama taking us down the road to destruction.

Now Obama has been allowed to force us all to buy health insurance, when during his campaign against Hillary he was against mandatory health insurance. Then Obama lied to America when he maintained that position as he ran against John McCain.

As a man who swore an oath to this nation in the military and as a U.S. senator to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution, McCain has failed to mention that mandatory health insurance is unconstitutional and an affront to everything our forefathers meant when they created this once-great nation.

Surely there is someone in our government who will honor their pledge to uphold the U.S. Constitution. The irony is that we have brave men and women dying to bring freedom to other countries while we lose our basic freedoms right here in the USA. A crying shame.
