Senator John “Gang of Eight” McCain (R-Ariz.) took questions from Tucson residents Tuesday at a town hall meeting during this month’s Congressional recess.
Talking up immigration reform (we know where he stands on that), McCain also pledged to support “better” gun control and possible bailouts for homeowners with underwater mortgages. Overall, he sounded a lot more like Chris Christie than a conservative war hero.
Here’s a video synopsis from KGUN-9 in Tucson.
Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
