That would make you a Kerry Conservative. The Clinton Conservatives had the same misguided "reasoning".....they wanted to "teach Bush 41 a lesson" (same as "Let republicrats take the heat.")....so they voted for Perot or for another third party (like you want to do) or they didn't vote at all...and the Liberals won. If Bush loses, you lose....big time.
No. When it comes to national elections, I would always support the Republican, not a third party. I am in no sense a "Kerry Conservative," any more than I suppose you are.
However, there needs to be a major rethinking of how this government is financed, and the health of our financial system. Both parties support, fully, a system that creates free money in violation of the constitution. This is NOT ACCEPTABLE. I don't care how many Bush-like "conservative" candidates emerge and win, unless/until this issue gets on the major political parties' radar, we are heading down a rathole as a nation.
I, for my part, DEMAND that the fiat money system get on the national political agenda. And if the Republicans don't have the stomach for it, maybe the Constitution Party has/have.
