John McCain's ideal Supreme Court justices are those who voted to uphold his cherished legislative achievement, McCain-Feingold: Stevens, Breyer, Souter, Ginsburg and O'Connor.

I'll be voting for Obama in the primary, because he's the only viable candidate left who doesn't routinely mock and insult conservatives. And I'll be voting for the Democrat in the general, because if my choices are Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter, I'll take Carter: If the country is going to Hell in a handbasket, I damn well want a Democrat to take the fall.

"Why not third party? Staying home just tells them you don't care about politics."

There's no 3rd party here in Arizona. And I don't care about politics when there are no people I can respect who are running. The GOP can simply pound sand - for everything - if they nominate McCain. Like I said, no vote, no money, no support - for anything. Not even dogcatcher.

"He’ll never get my vote. Nor anyone within my sphere of influence."

McCain did accomplish one thing it seems. He split the party wide open. I guess it's revenge for us torpedoing his amnesty bill.

The ignorance is so stunning I chipped a tooth when I read the OP’s thread starter....

Cut and Run, that is our option, act like Anti War nut jobs, but do not claim to support the Troops.

You are living the lie if you actually believe McCain will put conservative judges on the bench. His general campaign manager, Warren Rudman (sp?), was THE GUY who recommended Souter to Bush I because he was a conservative. Do you know how Souter turned out? He was a moderate that just kept going left. I don’t trust McCain at all about this. Especially not when Rudman is running the campaign for him.

I went into this election cycle with two primary issues:

1) modernizing the US economy
2) illegal immigration.

All the other issues were ages below these two priorities in my mind.

In that sense, I can’t see myself voting for McCain. The man is incompetent when he talks about the economy. Not just wrong, but incompetent. And as for the border, well, we all know where that leads us.

I won’t be voting McCain. Ever. Especially after that little stunt he pulled in West Virginia. I demand a sense of honor in my President, and say what you want about Bush, he had it. McCain clearly does not.

“Voting for McAmnesty is a surrender of conservatism. I refuse to do it.”

Then you condemn us to Hilda-bama.

I would rather hang on to the edge of the cliff, and have a fighting chance,

then let go and willingly fall into the abyss.

You take every scrap you have and you hang on and you fight back.

There will be MORE elections. Dont give up ground to Hilda-bama and their traitorous party.

I completely understand that argument. I have considered it myself. However, if McCain will replace Stevens and Ginsberg with O’Connor-like judges, that would be far better than 2 more 40 year old Ginsbergs, which would be the result under Obama or Hillary.

Will not vote for McCain no matter who he picks as VP.

Now I see that we do not count, and I wasn't blindly following anybody. Hillary said to pray for the tornado victims. But they don't want religion mixed with government. Go figure.

This is a very important point. Another Freeper wrote a long post about this last week. McCain exposed his true character in those attacks.

If it is Hillary vs. McCain I will participate in the down level voting but I will leave the Presidential vote blank.

Remember, it is better to be face to face against a bayonet than to feel a knife in the back.

If enough conservatives pledge to not vote for McCain, we might not have to face that possibility based on the outside chance that the RNC comes to its senses and brokers the convention.

Having said that JM has not won yet, it appears he is only getting about 600 delegates tonight - so it is any body’s race and anything can happen.

Hillary will be the nominee . She will also be harder to beat than Obama , as she will turn out the very potent female swing vote .

Obama will not be able to tap into any new voting blocks that the Dims don’t already have, if he was to be the nominee .

That is a weak stand. So if I dont vote for a traitor because he sold out his own party and is a dispicable man...I somehow become responsible for his action to deliver our party that he left to the Democrats. I beg to differ, why dont you also blame me for the fact that the media loved McCain so they could draw you weak people into the trap of bringing us to this point of picking between a democrat and a demorat/rino!!!!! you took the bate and now you MY FRIEND ARE THE LUNCH!!!!!!

There's no 3rd party here in Arizona.

Nobody at all? The 2004 returns show Badnarik (Libertarian) getting about 12,000 votes in AZ, so surely he was on the ballot.

We are now a socialist nation.

We are no longer a Republic. The unstoppable push towards rabid Socialism is a certainty. Limited government has long been gone, never to be seen in this once great land. The cancer of the left has won. We are kidding ourselves if we think "conservatism" will ever again flower. Once millions of illegals have amnesty, they will vote for the Rats. The left will have a permanent electoral lock at the Presidential level.

The arrogant elitists at the RNC and the evil McCain have one a Pyrrhic victory. McCain will NEVER get my vote.

The only joy on election night will be watching that vile, corrupt, lying, vengeful, petty, small old man duck out from giving his concession speech. I abhor everything about McCain and those like him.

If it is a choice between Hillary Clinton, and John McCain, a vote for anyone other than John McCain IS A VOTE FOR HILLARY CLINTON.

I don’t care how much you dislike John McCain, you can’t possibly think, under any circumstaces, that Hillary Clinton would be better.

I would wish we could find dems (and repubs) that understood how business and government and taxes worked like Kennedy. Hell I wish there were more dems and repubs like Zell Miller - the guy who gave the best damn speech at the 04 gop convention. All our repubs should have sounded as good as he did and believed what he was saying.

You don’t think a third party “conservative” candidate would be better than just writing in a name that doesn’t get counted at all? I am not voting for McCain/Huckabee, and I certainly am not going to vote for the Dems, so what option is left?

If Hillary is the Nominee and you do not do your duty to prevent her from taking office, then you are a traitor.

A ridiculous statement.

A "friend" who is an enemy will stab you in the back

An enemy that is an enemy has to face you and you can fight without encumbrances.

Conservatives have decided to pull the knives of years out of their backs and stand up and face a declared enemy, instead of settling for the dregs.

If Rommey doesn’t pull this nomination out (sigh), then McCain’s going to have to pick an outstanding VP candidate.

NOT Huckabee.

Thompson or Hunter would be fine by me.

I’d love to see a young, solid conservative as his veep. He’ll probably need it.

I actually think she would be better. There would be no “party loyalty” issues to compel Republicans in congress to support her proposals like there would be if McCain were to become President.

I tend to agree with you. The conservative movement can re-group after a couple yrs with Obama messing things up. But should Clinton get in it may take generations. I wont vote for either McCain or huckster. They will be destroyed by the MSM well before the election anyway.

Romney certainly wasnt my choice but now we are stuck with two vile con artist and they will drive the nail into the conservative movement.
