Politics IS the art of the possible -- when Clinton won on a plurality the first time, the "possible" happened and he was forced to the right by the Republican Revolution. When he was elected by a plurality the second time, he was impeached. Talk about the art of the possible! And God lending a hand!
ABOers, there's a better way to use your vote. Forget about holding your nose and voting for Romney. Instead, HEED your nose and reject him. When your nose tells you something stinks, it's warning you it's rotten or toxic. Your nose is a wise and faithful guide. HEED IT.
USE your vote in the "art of the possible" by voting for a plurality -- voting third party. Mathematically and materially, any and all third party votes (and there will be plenty from the left) favor neither Obama nor Romney, but each and every one counts toward reducing the popular mandate of the winner. Because Obama is so very low in support and so many former supporters have abandoned him, there's very little chance he could win a majority. Good conservatives who rightly loathe Romney have been whipped up into a state of hysteria by pundits of the right, and it is dangerously near frightening them into voting for someone they KNOW is wrong.
Voting third party risks an Obama win, as it also risks a Romney win. Either way, the next president will be a liberal statist whom conservatives in Congress will have to oppose. Historically, conservatives have made great strides opposing liberal presidents elected on pluralities.
Thank you, Jim, and God bless you, Free Republic, and America. And may He help conservatives overcome the affliction of ABO before November.
