John McCain's policies would destroy the United States. His platform is 1) amnesty for the 20 million illegals in the country and open borders for millions more; 2) perpetual war in the Mid-East; and 3) outsourcing of millions of jobs through free trade.
John McCain's policies could damage the Republican Party and take other Republicans down with him.
Millions of Republicans would stay home, not vote for McCain, or vote for the Democrat.
Independents would vote against McCain, regardless of who runs against him.
John McCain would pass legislation that could not be passed by a Democrat. Here is Ann Coulter.
If Hillary is elected president, we'll have a four-year disaster, with Republicans ferociously opposing her, followed by Republicans zooming back into power, as we did in 1980 and 1994, and 2000. (I also predict more Oval Office incidents with female interns.) If McCain is elected president, we'll have a four-year disaster, with the Republicans in Congress co-opted by "our" president, followed by 30 years of Democratic rule.

For John McCain, there is not such thing as illegal immigration.
Republicans should have an open convention and pick a candidate acceptable to conservative Republicans. This would give Republicans a strong chance of winning in November 2008. This can only be done if McCain is not nominated. Worry about dumping McCain first, and then who might replace him.
