Bikers For Obama Hit McCain on "Buying American"

video

BIKERS BACK OBAMA

AT ISSUE: Obama's support of requiring the government to purchase American-made motorcycles, like those produced by Harley-Davidson. Area bikers chastised John McCain for calling that "Buy American" policy "disgraceful."

***FACT CHECK***: McCain DID in fact call a requirement for the federal government to buy American products "disgraceful" . . . FROM POLITIFACT . . . "McCain has repeatedly voted and spoken against requiring the government to buy American-made products. He argues that such a requirement hurts trade and doesn’t guarantee the lowest prices for taxpayers."

Springfield State Representative Sara Lampe, join area Teamsters/bikers, Bryan Emory and John Cook in lambasting McCain's position.

you idiots, although I am partial to Harley, there are more parts made and assembled in America by Honda motorcycles then there are by Harley.

Aren't there helmet laws on the books in Missouri?

I think that we need more liberty minded individuals running for office, I hope the next elections that the people have more options. I think that if someone wants to choose to take the risk of riding without a helmet, that should be their choice. Remember that more laws and regulations limit choice and the liberty of the people. If they don't wear a helmet and they get hurt, they made that choice, but to force people to behave as you think they should, when they are not hurting anyone else is stupid to say the least.
