John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, regularly claimed the title "Maverick" for himself, as did his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

The person who didn't brand his cattle was Samuel Maverick; because his didn't, his cattle often wandered off and were captured by other surrounding ranchers. He was trying to raise some quick money (because the beef industry in the south was booming). But anyway, I'm getting off track. People who are said to be "Mavericks" are people are different, almost not normal. They're usually people who don't do what people think is right but what is popular. Some mavericks in history might be Sam Houston, Ben Franklin, and Abe Lincoln. Get what I mean?

I also wanted to point out that it is also the name of a deck of cards, a basketball team, an old t.v. show and Madonna's record label. Tom Cruise's character in the movie Top Gun is referred to as Maverick.

Bret Maverick was a gambler in the movie and T.V. show "Wild, Wild West." Maverick is also the name of a car.
