While I do not agree with John McCain on pretty much anything, there was a time I respected him immensely:
It took class to stand up to a mob when Mr. McCain could have easily played into it. He did not earn my vote this election but he did earn my respect as a Statesman. McCain was put to a Moral Fortitude test and he passed it with flying colors.
Fast Forward to August 17,2015 and Scott Walker was also put to a test of character and moral fortitude and Mr. Walker failed miserably.

As the video clearly shows, while Scott Walker was yelling and pointing fingers at the protester that he will "not be intimidated" and will do "whatever it takes" to get elected. Apparently what it takes here is to goad, encourage, condone and watch a human being get assaulted right in front of his eyes.
In a sane world, this would be the end of the Scott Walker career ascendancy. In world where Christians truly were Christian, this would draw disgust and anger from supporters and non supporters alike. In a world of laws, these men who harassed and assaulted the protesters would have been arrested. In a world where we treated everyone as if we were all connected and have more in common than not, Scott Walker would be an afterthought.
Alas, that is not the world we live in. We currently live in this world:
and one where politicians(NOT leaders), can sic the mob on his detractors.
How very unfortunate for our children!
God Bless you all, now beat that guy up!
