"Don’t let anyone ever convince you not to vote again."

I'll go you one better, don't let anyone convince you to vote for Liberal Lite just because he/she has an "R" after his or her name.

And this argument about not voting or voting for third party elects Democrats crap has got to stop.

Here's a novel idea, actually run Candidates people want to vote for rather than going with the RINO mantra of "vote for the lesser of two evils" so Democrats won't get elected.

I know its a radical concept but hey maybe its time for such.

You know the process that selected our candidate included democratic voters, right? You understand how the primaries work, right? Not many of us had a choice by the time the democrats had slammed McCain down our throats in the early primaries.

And none of you are answering my question...would we be in this sinking ship if McCain were president today? Would we be frantically and desperately clinging to our Republic as we are now. Would we even be discussing socialized health care and climate control energy taxes? IIRC, McCain's plans on these issues were quite conservative.

So, unless you can prove your principled plan of "I won't vote for anyone unless he's truly 100% conservative" has worked out well for you in this election, you need to reevaluate your principles. They're not working out well for any of us.
