Same old canard - vote Republican because we can win. . . BAH! The lesser of two evils is still evil.
Always better to use trite catchphrases than to really think about the issues, isn't it?
If you're given the choice between being shot in the head or punched in the shoulder, are you indifferent between the two? Why? After all, the lesser of two evils is still evil, right?
The canard isn't "Vote for Bush because we can win." It's "Vote for Bush because he's infinitely better than Kerry."
Even if you think government intervention and spending is a wash between Democrats and Republicans, I ask you,
"Do you want Pres. Kerry defending our country and laughing at Libertarians, while Badnarik teaches skydiving, but your conscience is pure; or a Pres. Bush defending our country, beholden to Libertarians, while Badnarik teaches skydiving, and you swallowing your pride for a day."
And I submit that this is an accurate description of the reality.
