John McCain (1939-2018) died today after a battle with brain cancer. He was a U.S. Navy veteran, a prisoner of war, a Senator, and a candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America. He was also a person of independent thinking, who often said he asked this question when facing difficult choices: what would Teddy Roosevelt have done?

He was someone with whom I disagreed on many issues of politics, but I have great respect for his service to the county, his integrity, and his decency. I will never forget how he responded to a person who claimed that Obama was not an American, and McCain said, “He’s a decent family man, a citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues, and that’s what this campaign is all about.” (time.com)

John McCain was a good, decent, and honorable man. His memory will be honored in good thoughts for much longer than that of the present corrupt administration whose leader disparaged McCain’s military service.

Rest In Peace John McCain
