Of course I know you won't vote for Obama. Neither will I. Not even a halfway principled conservative would. But I also won't vote for Romney.
Do try to think with the potential dynamics that will occur between a Republican dominated Congress and a 'Republican' Socialist president, versus a Democrat Socialist president.
The 'Republican Socialist's left-wing agenda will get a pass, while the Democrat Socialist will be fought tooth and nail. Results are all I care about in the coming four years. I want Congress to OPPOSE the Socialist inhabiting the White House - not roll over for him.
Although we do not share the same viewpoints, I respect your passionate support of your position.
As is the custom, we can agree to disagree.
That has to be balanced against the damage an Obama second term would cause in areas such as court appointments, executive orders, regulatory strangleholds on the economy and outright usurpations of power. As bad as the excesses of full GOP control became under Bush, they pale in comparison to what Obama continues to do even with GOP control of the House as a buffer.
Unless the GOP were to get to 67 seats in the Senate, Obama, Holder and the other goons will continue to abuse power with impunity because the Clintoon precedent showed that the Dems will not vote to remove upon impeachment.
So every conservative has to ponder which is worse for this country.
