John McCain Not Returning For Another Senate Term

Published

on

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain recently published a brand new book where he speaks boldly about his recent battle with cancer, making the announcement that he will not be seeking another term in office.

In an excerpt from the book McCain writes,” This is my last term. If I hadn’t admitted that to myself before this summer, a stage 4 cancer diagnosis acts as an ungentle persuasion.”

McCain also noted in the book that not seeking reelection has enabled him to be more bold in speaking out about the current political climate in America than a lot of his colleagues who are afraid to voice their opinions due to fear of not winning future elections.

“I’m freer than colleagues who will face the voters again. I can speak my mind without fearing the consequences much. And I can vote my conscience without worry.”

Along with dropping the announcement about his last term, the former P.O.W. also made a call for folks on both sides of the aisle to return to teamwork and compromise, focusing on what’s best for the country, putting it ahead of political party by zeroing in on the values all Americans share.

At this point, many folks are curious as to whether or not McCain, who is recovering from the side effects of cancer treatment at home in Arizona, is going to be able to finish out his current term.

There’s been no indication, as of this writing, that the senator is planning on resigning before the end of his current stint in office.

While McCain’s strength in finishing up his term and wisely deciding against running for reelection are to be admired, the call for more comprise can be seen as something negative.

We’ve already seen the product of compromise with the current radical left-wing that exists in Washington. It’s disastrous for the American people and for our freedom.

What it seems we need more of is less compromise from conservatives who run on a strict platform that upholds our liberties and works to improve the economy.

Let’s hope that kind of boldness continues to resurface in the conservative movement.
