I wasn't suggesting not voting for Bush, or even commenting on the issue as it relates to the presidential election (thus being a bit off topic, I admit), just carping about the assumptions underlying the argument. But I'll ask the corresponding question: How are these "citizen patriots" going to restore the issue to its proper form?
I already told you, by grassroots efforts presenting their small-gov't, constitutionalist positions to electorate. It'll take time, but it's the only change we have. Voting 3rd party sure isn't going to do it, and it fact, will have the opposite effect.
