Last ditch appeal to Libertarians and Constitution voters:
11/1/2004 | agitate

Posted on 11/01/2004 6:34:54 AM PST by Agitate

Is your protest vote worth 4 years of John Kerry? Are you willing to risk appeasing terrorists, sellout to the UN and the EU, more taxes, less for the military, homosexual marriage and activist judges who will be there long after the president is gone, your for vote today?

Sometimes you have to lose a battle to win the final war. Is a vote for a candidate who will not win worth 4 years of Kerry’s extreme liberalism? I hope not.

"With these results after trying to pass universal health care, I not worried at all"

times are changing. How else does someone like Kerry garner almost half the vote? the media screaming about free health care. the prices of drugs and doctor visits skyrocketing, this socialized medicine movement is gaining BIG TIME! better wake up. the new VP might be a malpractice lawyer.

I voted for Browne in 2000 and 1996, Andre Marrou in 1992, and Mike Dukakis in 1988.

Tomorrow, I will proudly punch my ballot for George W. Bush.

The Supreme Court, our security, and our economic future are too important to entrust to "None of the Above", which is a default vote for Kerry.

Bush has flaws, but this is not the time to obsess about them. The alternative is far worse.


That's how I'm thinking. I am utterly ashamed to say how I voted in 2000. It wasn't Democrat, Libertarian or Constitution. I was totally unschooled in politics and just shouldn't have voted. Thank God for those wise enough not to vote like me back then.

I know that libertarians and constitution party supporters are much more politically educated and not ignorant like I was in 2000, I'm not saying that at all. I'm sure they are frustrated like most of us. I have gone door to door several times this weekend an after talking to potential voters, it seems many do not realize the potential Kerry poses to our freedom. I also know that every vote will count in many states this time, thus this appeal.

Thanks, Agitate, for understanding my answer was not a flame.

I agree that Kerry in office will not fix any of these problems. Bush in office will also fail to fix these problems. Instead, Bush in office will allows the current Republican party to keep veering to the left, as the Dems become more and more socialist.

The neocons are Wilsonian democrats pretending to be conservatives. I have learned over the past 4 years that just because someone says he or she is Republican does not mean that the person is a conservative. It just means that the person does not want the Dems in office or that the person is an evangelical Christian. (No offense to evangelicals -- my dad is a Baptist minister.)

Flame suit on and ready.

That's what we were told 4 years ago. I am tired of the RNC moving more and more to the left each election. I will vote for Bush but not because he is conservative. I just don't want Kerry and the liberal media to win.

It would be helpful if someone could list all of the conservative things Bush has done the last 4 years compared with all of the centrist positions. I don't want to see statements he made, but actual policies (and don't include the WOT, we already know about that).


No flame suit needed for me. From what I see I agree with your thinking. I don't like the move to the left either. Bush has said and done things that make me cringe, but more often he has said things that make me cheer. The lesser of 2 evils again but I think it will always be that way.

Again, I believe we have a better chance to work for true conservative, constitutionally sound change under Bush, Kerry is more concerned with the UN/EU International Criminal Court constitution than ours.

Also, I think there is a list of Bush's conservative achievements, I will post it if I can find it or someone may beat me to it.

And you're right about the media too, the MSM propaganda is the scariest thing about this election. From sophistry to flat out lies, it's bordering on Goebbels IMHO.

I thought you didn't need the votes from "Liberaltarians"? What happened to change your mind?

When did I say that? I'll take any votes I can get for Bush this time around.

I belive this is an emergency situation, and the worse thing that can happen to anyone who is not a true leftist is for Kerry to win. I believe he is a real and present danger to this nation. It's not about changing minds, it's about making the best logical choice for the country's future.

My two cents.....

I was born a conservative, and have spent my life working and arguing for the Republican party. I will vote Republican this time around.

I would consider it a favor if everyone demanded that their vote be earned; and not provide your vote to anyone that didn't earn it.

This nation has entirely too many sheep in it already. Too many of the ignorant vote as it is. If after consideration, which you have obviously given, you find that any party doesn't represent you, then please....do not vote for them.

I look forward to the day that my party earns your vote, and will appreciate the intrinsic value that only an earned vote brings.

I agree 100% with you. I have decided to vote for Bush only because we are at war with Islam (and I do mean all of Islam not just the extreme), and we are at war with the MSM and hollyweird left.

I do feel that we are headed quickly towards a three party system.
1 - (D) Liberal extremists.
2 - (RO) RINO party made up of the current RNC (including Bush) and the centrist democrats which will be mosty pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, big government, but strong defense and moderately low taxes.
3 - (C) Conservative party made up of the old Reagan conservatives, christians, and pro-life, profamily, small government.

Here is my appeal:

Every time a liberal is elected as President, the country moves farther to the left. Subsequently, so does the Republican party. For every one step forward for conservatism, there is two steps backward for liberalism. A Kerry victory would only continue the country down a far more liberal course, no matter how much you believe a Bush victory would do the same.

The country can not become more conservative with a liberal as President. The courts are already flooded with liberals. Our social values have collapsed. Our moral values as a collective are beginning to rival those of European countries. In other words, we are on track to become that which we fought against.

Any thoughts of the emergence of a third party to 'teach Republicans a lesson' is nothing more than tomfoolery since it virtually guarantees liberals a victory every time. The only realistic way to get America on the conservative track is to elect George W. Bush to office for another four years.

Even though I don't think President Bush is a conservative, I'm voting for him largely because of the WOT and social issues (homosexual marriage and abortion).

You make the most intelligent plea for non Republican votes I have thus far seen on FR.

I think many libertarians and others who have goals that are advocated, but not acted upon, by the Republican party will vote for Bush tomorrow. Despite being called names, not only today, but every day by the kooks on this site who embrace authoritarianism as their ideal form af governance.

I agree, Bush is our best chance to "get right." A protest vote that doesn't help Bush will just put us further in the hole of liberalism and big government. Kerry is more interested in appeasing the rest of the world than upholding our constitution. Bush may not be the best, but he is the best opportunity for positive change right now, given the fact that a third party cannot win tomorrow.

but we Do have a REPUBLICAN house and senate and hopefully a President so we can get back to conservative ideals and maybe conservative JUDGES. that isn't gonna happen with sKerry. now all it will take is for YOU and I to do our part.
and stop crying about how much money is spent. most programs got less than they would have from any other candidate in 2000. bush capped the spending and after 9/11 most of the spending went to military.
happy with the last four years ? I sure am, and there lies the defference between you and I. I'll take destroying the Al-qaida in Afghanistan and taking down Saddam who supported any terrorist who asked, as well as being a monster.you know, rape rooms, mass graves... plus pulling the country out of a recession at the same time recovering from the greatest attack on this country since pearl harbor. where about a million of jobs were lost is the first couple months after 9/11. considering we can't change what happened on 9/11, yea I think GWB done pretty good. better than Gore would have done and way better that sKerry can do. so I'll vote Bush. you go join the "anybody but Bush" crowd

I am a previous "I am mad at Bush and not voting for him" voter. And I have already cast my vote for President Bush- I have done so proudly.

Since my "angry days" I have joined the Vietnam Vets Against Kerry. That alone is enough reason for me to "kiss and make up" with President Bush.

Yes- after everything was said and done it was just that simple for me.

We have a Republican House and Senate that wouldn't know Conservative ideals if they bit them in the ass. And a president who pays lip-service to those ideals.

and stop crying about how much money is spent. most programs got less than they would have from any other candidate in 2000. bush capped the spending and after 9/11 most of the spending went to military.

Yeah, that half-trillion dollar cap on the brand new Medicaid Prescription Drug plan impressed the hell out of me.

happy with the last four years ? I sure am, and there lies the defference between you and I.

Then by all means vote for President Bush. I wish you well and I expect he'll win, but don't try to convince me that he is any sort of a Conservative because that is utter nonsense.

Just like the Republican Kool-aide drinkers to call for "unity", now that the R. candidate needs our vote. Where was the "unity" when the time came to nominate a conservative? Or for that matter, adopt a conservative platform, or reign in activist judges, or produce a Constitutionally-ballanced budget, or get us the hell out of the United Nations? Hhhmmmm???

I remember vividly the attacks on conservatives by the main-stream Republicans before Primary time, and at party conventions. Trying to get a conservative nominated or a conservative platform amendment passed was like getting flamed and Zotted on Free Republic.

No, the time for "compromise" and "unity" was a long time ago. Some of us will just have to try to protect and defend the Constitution as best we can without your help, and I suggest you make your appeal for support to the "undecideds" - the ignoramuses who haven't a clue.

I never did understand why someone would only vote for a candidate if they agreed with the candidate 100% of the time.

That's not the issue. The problem is that he's wrong on so very many issues, and that domestic spending has grown faster on his watch than even on Clinton's. The problem is fundamental, not superficial.

The country can not become more conservative with a liberal as President.

When Clinton was President, the Republicans regained control of Congress for the first time in six decades, and Fox News and conservative talk radio became major forces to contend with. The mistake was when Republicans went with Bush in the primary, thinking that a "moderate" would appeal to more voters. All it did was make them more cynical about conservatives, and it very nearly cost Bush the election. The fact that Bush was nominated in 2000, in other words, was not evidence that the country had grown more liberal, but rather evidence that Republicans had misunderstood the views of the public. They assumed that media opinion=public opinion. Reagan proved otherwise.

So you're taking your ball and going home. Not a viable game plan for winning the game. No doubt you will taunt your own team when the opposition wins that they shouldn't have made you mad.

I'm not taking my ball home at all. I'm making a tactical decision to prevent a Hillary presidency, which I believe is in the best interest of the country.

The fact that a liberal, peacenik, Massachusetts senator is even this close after 9-11 is indicative of Bush’s ineptness at leadership. I fully believe that Bush’s liberalism will proceed in full earnest after his re-election. The consequences of this will be disastrous in the 2006 and 2008 elections. I will not be happy regardless of who wins tomorrow.

Why the inflamatory statement? You sound like you're taking some moral high ground here. I'll take the position you didn't mean it that way.

The time to keep Kerry out of office is now. I am not an evangelist for republicans, but if you think a protest vote is more important than keeping Kerry out that helps no one. If you care about activists judges, a constitutionally ballanced budget or not being under the grip of the UN and the EU, Kerry should be your worst enemy, and you should want him out for the good of us all. What do you think Kerry's judicial nominees will do to the constitution?

As for undecideds, I made many pleas, face to face this weekend. Those people are clueless sheep who live on soundbites. I'd bet some don't know who the VP nominees are. I hope I at least got some of them to think about not voting for Kerry.

What, specifically, has Bush committed to do in a second term to undo the damage caused during the first?

I refer specifically to the assault on the First Amendment via the CFR, the incredibly insane growth of Big Government and Big Government spending, and his cozying up to Ted Kennedy and other leftists, resulting in more government pork?

Will he squash Bud Shuster-types in Congress and their grandiose schemes?

Has he promised to do anything that Republicans used to be committed to doing?

I hated the amnesty thing too. But what do you think Kerry will do? Protect our borders? Is anything worth having Kerry in office? The man is dangerous.

As I said earlier today, I'm starting to think it'd be easier to force Kerry to fight terrorists that it would be to force Bush to restrain Big Government.

And I absolutely loath Lurch.

Why is every election an emergency?

A good question, and one I've been asking as well. The last one with Aldork was an emergency, this one's an emergency and the next one (with Hillary) will be an emergency, too. And, of course, they're all "the most important election of our lifetime."

When, exactly, do the 'bots plan to put the heat on the Big Government Republican Party? When the economy collapses or Big Stupid Government controls everything?

I respect the right to vote as one chooses, but this is an EMERGENCY.

Why is every election an emergency?


Who said every election? Not me.

Back to this topic, keeping the UN out of our business, staying out of the ICC, protecting free speech and the right to bear arms, and standing up for this country without apology constitute an emergency to me. If you don't mind these things, write in the easter bunny.

Give me a frigging break....Vote your heart and mind, and if that is Libertarian because your in favor of legalized drugs and gays....go for it

Big Government, lockstep Republicans just hate it when voters vote for candidates that best represent their principles, if said candidate doesn't happen to be a Republican. It's like it shouldn't be permitted, or something.

Of course, if Bush can't persuade enough people to vote for him, it'll be the voters' fault.

This nation is set up with a two party system...that's it!

Only in a parliamentary system does a many party system work.We don't have a parliamentary system,so voting for fringe parties 1)sends NO message 2)doesn't do anything other than make YOU a spoiler 3)serves less than no purpose 4) gives aid and comfort to the party you least want in control.

Faced with the hard,stone cold fact that a vote for a fringe party candidate gives your vote to one of the two major parties,reaped an inarticulate,childish,erroneous BS from you.It's long past time that you wake up and face the fact that that's true.The only BS,is your position.

I hated the amnesty thing too. But what do you think Kerry will do? Protect our borders? Is anything worth having Kerry in office? The man is dangerous.

As I said earlier today, I'm starting to think it'd be easier to force Kerry to fight terrorists that it would be to force Bush to restrain Big Government.

And I absolutely loath Lurch.


We agree on the loathe part. However, my view of your first sentence is just the opposite. I don't think Kerry cares one whit about defending America, and I think our chances for smaller gov are much better under Bush than Kerry.

Basically because you keep pinging me. I made one post early this morning, but you keep addressing comments to me. You want me off this thread? Fine. Don't reply. Leave me alone and go cast your vote for the loser of your choice.
