Skip to comments.A pledge to never vote for McCain (Vanity)
Posted on 02/05/2008 10:11:11 PM PST by Tree of Liberty
If the unfortunate possibility of a McCain nomination comes to pass, I will not work for his election to the presidency, nor will I defend him in ad hoc conversations. He is wholly unworthy for that high office, and it is intolerable for my conscience to abide supporting him.
I will face two options once in the voting booth: 1) cast my ballot for a third party candidate, or 2) simply not vote in the presidential election.
I am curious who among you share my sentiments.
McCain isnt good on defense, he wants to close Guantanamo and doesnt wanna secure our borders. He lies about being the only Republican for the surge, when in fact most Republicans were for it. Also, a lot Rinos who support McCain say it’s because of the war, but really they want to wipe out the Conservative movement in the Republican party for ever.
As for Iraq War there is no reason that by March of next year that they can’t defend their own country. How long does it take to train a army anyhow.
As for nuclear weapons I trust Hillary, (with all her faults), Over the Mad MacNuts any-day.
McCain scares me more than Hillary. At least we know what she represents. A maverick like McCain is so off the wall and unpredictable its kind of like living with a lunatic - you live in constant fear and trepidation of what the lunatic might decide to do next!
I last voted democratic for Jimmy Carter in 1976, But if McCain becomes nominee of the party I will vote Democrat because McCain has hurt the conservative movement more than any other Republican. Can you image what liberals ideas would become law if he became president? At least Hillary would have the Republicans in congress fighting her and not making McCain legislation go though which could kill the conservative movement for decades.
Im a radical conservative but if McCain wins say goodbye to the Conservative movement for decades. Plus the politicians who back that phony would increase.
I have been called a troll For my hate for MACLIBERAL. I must have trolling here for 8 years. I would like to thank you Freepers who were here in 2000, and all the highs and low in between, I’m 55 years old and I’ll be a lot older before things turn around.
Thanks for Listening to my rants, so long till then. Factmart.
Sorry, but it isn't our responsibility that McCain is loathesome. It is his fault, and the voters that went for his drivel. His supporters KNEW he was going to split the party and they went for him anyway. It is their fault, and they can lie in the mud they dug themselves.
If McCain is the nominee, they are truly, effectively the same party.
And our many thanks to Ross Perot. / s
You will all feel like a right bunch of a$$holes when you stay home and Hillary Clinton the unrepentant socialist is elected. McCain ain't much but he's better than anyone on the Left.
The time was three years ago.
The Democrats are going to get their mile. The question is whether we should make them take it, or whether we should elect someone who will give it to them on a silver platter?
Time for the southern red states to learn a little political lesson. The Evangelicals can vote for their Huckster, and we can NOT vote for McCain. I believe in group suffering. You take a viable candidate down, and a lot of you did it because of religious bigotry and prejudice, then we take down what’s left by not voting for him. Then we all pay the price, not just the non-Evangelicals. Payback bigtime. A quality John McInsane is well versed in. Time to make sure he’ll never be President.
I will vote Constitution Party or leave the Prez part of the ballot blank or write someone in. My disgust is larger than some of the piles of snow outside my condo. Finis. I might add, by taking McInsane down, it also takes down all of the RINO opportunists that jumped on his bandwagon, including the Huckster, Steve Forbes, Rudy Guiliani, Jack Kemp, Ted Olson (he was such a disappointment), Lindsey Grahamnesty, Michael Medved, Joe Lieberman and others. No positions for them in a Pub Admin, because there won’t be one. We can have the last laugh.
I agree with virtually everything you stated. My only point of difference is that I will not actively vote for Clinton.
If conservatives vote for him just to beat Hillery, then they are doing exactly what we have been saying the blacks have been doing with the Democrats. This entire system is broken. The Primaries are a joke. If we don't stand up and fight for something different, then the socialist takeover will be here even sooner than we think.
I do not recognize the Republican Party any more. They certainly don't represent me.
As of this day, the Republican Party is no longer worth fighting for.
We’re in for Four Years Of Hell. It doesn’t matter which party wins. We’ll get the same sh*t from McCain as we will from the Democrats - pro-illegal, pro-global warming, pro-censorship, activist judges, etc.
If we are to fight, it will be outside the Republican Party. They have decided they no longer want us and no amount of red meat from McJudas will make me change my mind about him.
Tonight watching the results and realizing McCain is it I did think that maybe I would hold my nose and vote for him because moderates is telling us to do so for the good of the party.
Then I started thinking of 1964 when the Conservatives nominated Berry Goldwater. Did the Moderates hold their noses and vote for the Republican? Judging from the election results they didn’t so guess what Moderates, Payback is a bitch.
I wouldn’t leave any ashtrays or lamps around her.
I’m not being glib about it. For this particular guy, he wasn’t going to vote anyway. You’d never get that vote to count for anyone. A blank is the same thing as a write-in for this guy. I just said don’t leave it blank.
I wouldn’t suggest this to everyone. Just the people who have already decided they were going to leave it blank. They aren’t going to come back around and vote McCain. In this type of case, I think writing someone in is better than leaving it blank.
Good point...but better late than never, right?
I mean pushing his liberal agenda as president...
Maybe I gotta stop posting, people are starting to pick pick pick at small details in my posts and ignore the bigger ideas, and it’s getting on my nerves a bit...
See y’all later.
It is obviously that you are, as your profile states, the future of the GOP!
come on...don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. We could still get some very good supreme court nominations with McCain and with a majority of republicans in congress, we could keep him on the straight and narrow.
I won’t vote for McCain and am even considering voting for Hillary or Obama if it’s close in the general election. My wife says she won’t vote for McCain in the general election. I hate McCain more than she does. She hates Hillary more than I do(which is no small feat.)
