Hm, what sort of a person would rally against voting on one's conscience? What does it say about the cause that you are trying to promote?
It is my estimation that those who say "quit hiding behind conscience" are themselves being condemned by their own conscience -- sin always likes the excuse of "everybody else does it."
But let's take a look at what you're saying:
First, you say that any 3rd party vote is a vote for Obama, thereby implying that on 3rd party vote is either valid nor valuable.
Second, your assertion that they're all votes for Obama is implicitive that only the other main-party candidate is both viable and different... but is it the case that the Republican Party is actually different from the Democrat party; let's look at its reputation, stated planks and the near abysmal failure of the party to pursue them:
I should not, and that leaves only the candidate himself to earn my vote.
So, why should I vote for Romney? He's pro-abortion, even if you accept his "conversion to 'pro-life'"*.
Why should I vote for Romney? He's a Fabian Socialist, I don't want to vote for Socialists.
Why should I vote for Romney? He's a Statist, there's nothing I've herd him say "that's not the government's job" on.
Why should I vote for Romney? He's got a reputation for talking through both sides of his mouth. Why should I vote for Romney? He's got no solid values. Why should I vote for Romney? He's done nothing to inspire confidence he'll be better than Obama.
* -- In that he accepts exceptions which are the killing of the child for the sin of the parent.
Why should I vote Romney? He won't try and destroy the country.
Why should I vote Romney? Because America cannot survive another 4 years of Obama.
Why should I vote Romney? Because America cannot tolerate more debt.
Why should I vote Romney? Because a vote for a 3rd party candidate is a vote for Obama.
Why should I vote Romney? Because he won't surround himself with marxist/communists.

Why should I vote Romney? Supreme Court appointees that move the Supreme Court to a more conservative majority, not a more liberal one.
Why should I vote Romney? There is no other choice. Obama is terrible and the rest have no chance of winning.
If you are wondering about me, I'll tell you about me. First, Robert DeLong is my real name. I hide from no one. Secondly, I am a 60 y.o. conservative, both fiscal and social. Thirdly, I realize the enormity of this election and the real dire consequences of Obama getting another 4 years. Four years that will totally descimate this country. I am totally willing to put the lesser of 2 evils in and then staying engaged to see what evil he may do, if any. I know what evil Obama will do. So yes, better the devil I don't know then the devil I do. I don't look for Romney to be the complete perfect human being. Just like Reagan made mistakes I expect Romney to make mistakes. By mistakes I mean do some thing(s) I disagree with. Fourthly, I am a God fearing man, and my conscience says that I am voting for the best possible candidate.
Instead of looking what Republicans haven't done, look at what Democrats have done. You will see that they are the ones that have gotten us to this point. Not that Republicans are blameless. because they are. Had Reagan been given a majority in both Houses of Congress then I believe he would have made some progress. Often times I honestly believe that Republicans do what they do because they are trying to solve the problem, but the real problem is their thinking that government can solve the problem. Democrats on the other hand do what they do to solidify their power. Evil you know whats, every last one of them.
