re: “Voting for evil gets more of it. Period.”
But, you see, that’s just the point. Every candidate is evil to a certain extent. That’s the “degree” part I spoke of. So, you are always voting for what you perceive to be “less evil” in a candidate.
Of the republican candidates or independent candidates who ran for president in 2012 - which one was not evil in your opinion?
And, a follow-up question, at what point do you decide a candidate is not “evil” enough to avoid voting for them?
Follow that logic to it’s conclusion and you get to be a card carrying member of the situational ethics club. And then anything goes.
If you can knowingly vote for a guy that personally funds the Gonsels of the world, then don’t complain about the other guy who does now in office. Same for the gay thing and the rest.
I’m good with Reagan’s 80 percent standard of purity. Did Romney break 50? No. 40? no. So how low are you willing to go? How much evil? Do the words of the founders who specifically said NOT to do that mean anything or do you feel like one freeper told me, ‘that’s just John Wayne talk”?
