I will be voting for neither the Republican (in Name Only) or the DemocRAT. I plan to vote for a 3rd party candidate. Either the Constitution Party, or another will field a true conservative. While they have no chance to win, that is the only way to CLEARLY send a message to the Republican Party that we want the party to return towards the RIGHT (Conservative) side.
Here is how I see it:
1. If you vote for McCain, you are giving your stamp of approval of liberal Democrats in Republican ranks. You are saying that the conservative voice doesn't matter because we won't stand on our principals.
2. You vote for Hillary or Obama - you are contributing to the further Socialism of this country - and sending a message to the Republican party that you wnat the country to be more liberal...
3. You don't vote at all (at least on the issue of President) - it sends a fairly quiet message via exit polls that you are not happy with the candidates presented, but it really won't make much difference, and won't get much attention at all.
4. You vote for a conservative 3rd party. Since the RINO is going to lose anyway, at least with an officially counted vote for a real conservative - the vote will be publicised and will send a loud and clear message that we have had enough.
Regardless, it looks like a Democrat will win (heck - even if McCain could pull it off - he almost jumped party back in 2001, and was one of the two finalists as Kerry's running mate in 2004). So we will have a liberal in the White House next year - regardless of the outcome.
I know a lot of folks that crossed over party lines to vote Democratic and for Obama, just to knock Hiltery out of the race. Seems to be working!I think the reason Republicans are voting for Obama is because they know he'll be easier to beat than Hitlery.
Smart move, actually.
I am with ya on this one.The Lord knows me for who I am, and I make no pretense....I am not a racist, as far as color goes, but I'll not vote for Omama the muslim nor will I vote for McCain the turncoat! So, that leaves Ron Paul! I may waste my vote, but I will send a message loud and clear I am against the direction the hippocrats and repugni-cons have taken us! Let the revolution begin!
