To: TommyDale; null and void
The GOP isn't forcing anyone down our throats. This was an unusual primary year, in that there was no incumbent, or sitting VP, running for President for the Republicans. The primary was wide open, and, as a result, we got lots of candidates. Some were good candidates, some not so good. Some were more conservative than others, and the four more conservative candidates split the votes of the conservative base of the party. That left the moderate Repubs, some Independents, and a few Democrats who crossed over, to vote for McCain. We can complain about his being the candidate all we want, but he received the plurality of the Republican Primary votes, and as result will be our candidate.
He wasn't my guy, I was a Fredhead, but I WILL vote for McCain, because the War on Terror, and the person who will choose the next two or three Justices on the Supremes are extremely important issues for me, and I do not want a Democrat making decisions on either of them. If we want to curb McCain's more liberal tendencies, we need to make sure to get more Conservatives in Congress. He can't do anything about Immigration or any other matter, unless he gets the votes in Congress; doesn't matter how he feels personally about the issues.

Are you voting FOR McCain, or merely AGAINST Obama?

I will not vote for McCain under any circumstance whatsoever.
