You are right in that we must do what we can to elect those who believe as we do. That must never change.
But whether or not most do, I stand by my statement. A country that would willingly vote for the things MR has a record of doing is done as anything resembling America. We are merely at this point trying to minimize the damage on the outside chance a miracle will happen.
Until the majority of the ‘right wing’ population changes what they believe and are no longer willing to allow their votes to contribute to the dead baby count (because dent it all they like, they are empowering a man who will escalate that count), among other things, then they will continue to be shocked and their beibers stuned when they get exactly the things they cast their vote in support of.
Wow! Vote for a lib and get lib policy/laws! What a surprise! Never saw that coming! /s
If course they could grow a pair, stand on their hind legs (for a change) and vote for what they really believe in.
Then again, perhaps with the Mitt vote, they are.
As an interesting thought experiment consider this....IF you were able to vote when Hitler was running for Chancellor and IF you understood exactly what Mein Kampf meant....would you have said voting for the other guy wasn’t acceptable because he was only slightly less evil?
