I know all you Liberals love pulling the whole, John McCain's is so old, his social sercurity number is 1. So you know what? I'll play along. If his social sercurity number is 1, that means he was born in November of 1936, (little history here, the first Social Sercurity numbers were issued under the New Deal.) But wait, before 1986, most people did not have Social Sercurity numbers until they were 14. That means that John McCain really wasn't born on August 29th, 1936. Instead he was born, the latest on August 29th, 1922, making him 86, not 72.
In those 86 years, lets look at John McCain's life through American History
John McCain was born in the roaring twenties, where the US saw a huge economic boom following World War 1.
In 1929, John McCain witnessed the crash of the stock market due to overspeculation. Banks closed and the world plundged into depression.
1936, John McCain was the first person in line, even ahead of everybody in Washington D.C. and recieve SSN 000-00-0001.
1940, John McCain saw FDR get back into office1959 for a third term, breaking the traditional two term limit. The US was still in the depression.
December 8th, 1941, the USA enters World Waw Two, ending the depression (see Liberals, FDR did not end the depression, Hit1er did).
1944 FDR wins 4th term, dies a year later in office.
1950, Korean War starts in hopes to contain the Democratic Party, I mean communism.
1953, Korean War ended, victory for the free world.
1955-1968, Civil Right Movement. Equal Employment Act is passed into law.
1959, Vietnam War starts, in hopes to contain communism.
1975, US troops pull out, at the time claiming victory of containing communism. The North Vietnamese, backed by USSR and China, going against the Paris Peace Agreement signed in 1973, rushed the south and took over.
1982-2010, yes 2010 is the official date McCain's fourth term ends. During these years, he helped to bring the US out of its worst recession since World War I, balanced the budget (Congress, not Clinton), and aproved to fight terrorism.
So there you go, looking at past American events of what he has witnessed if his Social Sercurity number really was 000-00-0001, I would have to say his life has been pretty impressive. Can you say the same about Obama? Just remember, JOHN McCAIN IS NUMBER ONE!
