麦凯恩:我们为何而战

本文属阅读资料
McCain: What We're Fighting For

The presidential election occurs at a pivotal moment. Our nation is fighting two wars abroad, suffers from the greatest global financial crisis since the Great Depression, and is facing a painful recession. I believe in the greatness of America. I believe in our capacity to prosper, and to be safer and remain a beacon of light on the global stage. But we cannot spend the next four years as we have spent much of the last eight: waiting for our luck to change. We have to act immediately. We have to fight for it.

The institutions that we counted on -- Wall Street banks, our elected leaders in Washington -- failed us. We must reverse the corruption and arrogance that have overtaken these institutions, and we must place our trust in the hands of those who have never let us down, especially the American family and small businesses.

We need to grow our small businesses, not tax them. I will fight the Democrats' plans to redistribute the fruit of America's labor and turn our economy into a full-fledged disaster. I will cut taxes on families, seniors, savers and businesses. We need to double the child deduction, cut the capital gains tax, and keep jobs in America with a lower business tax.

I will make government finally live on a budget and enforce that discipline by the power of veto. I won't spend nearly a trillion dollars more of your money. I will impose a short-term spending freeze and rid the government of waste, duplication and fraud. And I will chart a different course than the administration and Barack Obama and not spend your money just to bail out Wall Street bankers and brokers. I have a plan to protect the value of homes and get them rising again by refinancing mortgages so your neighbor won't default and further drag down the value of your house.

I will end three decades of failed energy policies; stop sending $700 billion to countries that oppose American values and finance our enemies; and drill for oil and natural gas. We must strengthen incentives for all energy alternatives -- nuclear, clean coal, wind, solar and tide. We will encourage the manufacture of hybrid, flex fuel and electric automobiles. We will lower the cost of energy, and create millions of new jobs.

I will not impose 'one size fits all' health care on families and small businesses through expensive mandates and fines. I will bring down the skyrocketing cost of health care with competition and choice, reform the insurance market to be fair, and allow you to keep the same health plan if you change jobs or choose to stay home.

One in five jobs in the U.S. depends on trade and I will fight the threat to those jobs from Democrat plans for isolationism. I won't make it harder to sell our goods overseas and kill more jobs. I will open new markets to goods made in America and make sure our trade is free and fair. And I'll make sure we help workers who've lost a job that won't come back find a new one that won't go away.

Senator Obama wants to raise taxes and restrict trade. The last time America did that in a bad economy it led to the Great Depression.

While most Americans are rightly concerned with the economic crisis, a world of pressing national security challenges also awaits the next president.

The gains our troops have made in the past 18 months in Iraq could be lost if we pull our troops out prematurely and regardless of the conditions on the ground. We have also dealt devastating blows to al Qaeda, especially in Iraq, but terrorists have found sanctuary on the Pakistan frontier among those trying to topple governments in both Kabul and Islamabad.

Afghanistan is reaching a crisis point, just as Iraq did in 2006. As an early supporter of the surge strategy in Iraq, I know that turning around this situation will require more than just increased troop levels. We also need a new, comprehensive strategy, one that integrates civil and military efforts and engages with various Afghan tribes.

Other major threats loom on the horizon: the Iranian and North Korean nuclear programs; aggressive Russian behavior toward its neighbors; Venezuelan adventurism; genocide in Darfur; and global warming. And those are only the dangers that we know of. Just as few expected the Russians to invade Georgia, we remain unaware of precisely where our next crisis will erupt, or when. The only certainty is that, as Joe Biden guaranteed, the tests facing the next president will be more severe if he is seen as weak in national security leadership.

I have devoted my life to safeguarding America. Former Secretary of State George Shultz compares diplomacy to tending a garden -- if you want to see relationships flourish, you have to tend them. I have done that, by traveling the world and establishing ties with everyone from dissidents to heads of state. There is great need for American leadership in the world, and I understand that only by exercising that leadership with grace and wisdom can we be successful in safeguarding our interests.

When I am president, I will not offer up unconditional summit meetings with dangerous dictators, nor will I foreclose diplomatic tools that serve our interests. I will respect our trade agreements with our allies, not unilaterally renounce them. I will close the Guantanamo Bay prison and ban torture. I will expand our armed forces and transform our civil and military agencies to win the struggle against violent Islamic extremism.

I believe that America is an exceptional country, one that demands exceptional leadership. After the difficulties of the last eight years, Americans are hungry for change and they deserve it. My career has been dedicated to the security and prosperity of America and that of every nation that seeks to live in freedom. It's time to get our country, and our world, back on track.

美国总统大选发生在一个关键时刻。我们的国家在海外应对着两场战争,经历着大萧条以来最严重的全球金融危机,面临着痛苦的经济衰退。我相信美国的伟大之处。我相信我们有能力繁荣昌盛,更加安全,继续担任全球大舞台的灯塔。但未来的四年,我们不能像过去八年多数时间里那样度过,不能坐等运气好转。我们必须立即采取行动,我们必须为之战斗。

我们曾经指望的机构──华尔街银行、我们在华盛顿的当选领导人──辜负了我们。我们必须扭转这些机构中盛行的腐败和傲慢,我们必须把信任寄托在那些从未让我们失望的人身上,尤其是美国家庭和小型企业。



Corbis我们需要发展小型企业,而不是向他们征收苛捐杂税。我将坚决反对民主党的征税计划,这一计划会重新分配美国劳动者的辛劳成果,把美国经济带入全面的灾难之中。我将对美国家庭、年长者、省吃俭用的民众和企业实施减税。我们需要把儿童减税额增加一倍,削减资本利得税,通过降低企业所得税来保证美国的就业。

我将最终推动政府实现预算平衡,并通过否决权执行这一纪律。我不会再次耗费将近1万亿美元的纳税人资金。我会实施短期的支出冻结措施,消除政府的浪费、重迭和欺骗现象。我会踏上一条与当今政府和奥巴马(Barack Obama)都不同的道路,不会耗费你们民众的资金只去救助那些华尔街的银行家和经纪商。我有一套自己的计划,能够通过抵押贷款再融资计划稳定房屋价值并再次实现增值,这样你们的邻居就不必违约,也不会拖累你们自己的房子贬值。

我会终结过去三十年失败的能源政策:不再向那些反对美国价值观并资助我们敌人的国家送去7,000亿美元;钻探石油和天然气资源。我们必须提高对所有可替代能源的支持方案,这包括了核能、清洁煤炭、风能、太阳能和潮汐能源。我们将鼓励混合动力车、弹性燃料汽车和电动汽车的生产。我们将降低能源成本,创造数百万个新职位。

我不会通过代价高昂的命令和罚金对美国家庭和小企业实施“大而全”的医疗方案。我会通过竞争和选择压低目前居高不下的医疗成本,改革保险市场确保公平,使得你们在更换工作或是选择呆在家中后也能维持同样的医疗计划。

美国有五分之一的工作岗位依赖于贸易,我将坚决反对民主党的孤立主义计划,因为这会威胁到这些工作岗位。我不会削弱美国产品在海外的竞争力,也不会扼杀更多的就业机会。我会为美国制造产品打开新市场,确保我们的贸易自由公正。我会确保我们能帮助到那些从消失的工作岗位上失业的人,帮助他们找到不会再次消失的新工作。

奥巴马参议员希望增加税收,限制贸易。上次美国在经济困难时期采取这些措施只带来了大萧条。

尽管大多数美国民众有理由关注经济危机,但新任总统还需要应对给我们国家安全带来挑战的这个世界。

如果我们贸然撤军,无视实际状况,那么过去18个月我们部队在伊拉克取得的成就就可能付之东流。我们已经给基地组织造成了毁灭性打击,尤其是在伊拉克;但是恐怖分子在巴基斯坦边境找到了避难所,在那些试图颠覆阿富汗和巴基斯坦政府的人中获得了支持。

阿富汗正逼近一个危机关口,就像伊拉克在2006年面临的情况。作为一名很早就支持伊拉克增兵政策的人,我很清楚扭转这一状况需要的不止是增加兵力。我们还需要一个全面的新战略,能够整合和平和军事举措,应对阿富汗各个部落。

我们面临的其它重大威胁还包括:伊朗和朝鲜核计划、俄罗斯对其邻国的侵略行为、委内瑞拉的冒险主义、达尔富尔种族屠杀以及全球变暖问题。而且,这些只不过是我们所知道的危险。就像很少有人预料到俄罗斯会入侵格鲁吉亚一样,我们也不确定下一次危机会在何时何地爆发。唯一确定的就是:就像乔·拜登(Joe Biden)所保证的那样,如果下任总统在国家安全领导方面被视为难堪大用,那么他将面临更加严峻的考验。

我毕生都致力于保卫美国。前国务卿舒尔茨(George Shultz)曾把外交比做照看花园,如果你想要外交关系之花盛开,那就必须小心照料。我周游世界,结交从异议人士到国家元首的各阶层人士,为了这一事业不懈努力。世界非常需要美国的领导,我明白只有在具有优雅和智慧的领导人带领下,我们才能成功捍卫美国的利益。

如果我当选总统,我不会无条件与危险的独裁者进行会面,也不会排斥维护美国利益的外交手段。我尊重与我们盟友的贸易协议,不会单方面中止协议。我会关闭关塔那摩基地监狱,禁止刑讯拷打。我会扩大我们的武装力量,对民事和军事机构进行转型,赢得与伊斯兰暴力极端主义的斗争。

我相信美国是一个非凡的国家,非凡的国家需要非凡的领导人。在经历过去八年的艰难岁月后,美国民众渴望变革,他们也应当得到变化。我把毕生精力都献给了美国的安全和繁荣,以及每个渴望自由的国度。现在,我们的国家和我们的世界重返正确道路的时刻已经来临了。
