Bob Barr also now works for the ACLU! Do you really want to vote for somebody for POTUS who is also pro-ACLU on all of the issues? Bob Barr has also become more “nutty” every year, similar to Alan Keyes, who has also become more “nutty” every year.

I’m sorry, since you clearly have no idea what I was getting at. I’m not asking anybody to “march in lockstep” with anyone. I’m asking people to exercise some political common sense. Anybody who votes in a state where their votes actually make a difference (states other than California, Massachusetts, and D.C., for example) need to realize that there are two candidates who have a chance at being elected. Fred Thompson is not one of them. What you are doing is unquestionably throwing your vote away. Of course, depending on where you live, it may not matter. If you’re in, say, Ohio, Virginia, or Florida, you’re just helping Obama.

Jim clarified his intent, as it seems that he finds McCain acceptable. This means we are in agreement on the matter. You might understand that the initial title of the thread could certainly be interpreted that he didn’t find McCain acceptable. I don’t like McCain, and I didn’t particularly like Giuliani either. I thought Romney was better than both by a good margin, and this is why I thought attacking Romney was quite counterproductive. Nonetheless, we are where we are.

You can interpret my original post any way you want. What I was first suspected was that Jim did not find McCain acceptable, which would’ve been pretty bad since there’s no other viable candidate left. That isn’t the case.

I don’t care to try to put lipstick on the McCain sow any more than anybody else. McCain is going to damage this country (cap and trade, for example) but he’s going to do less than the alternative. Much as a I dislike McCain and most of the Republican party they’re a better alternative than the socialists. I also don’t believe that if Obama is elected the Democrats will get blamed. Republicans are blamed for everything right now, and Obama could run the country straight into the ground (as he likely will with a socialist-dominated Congress) and they’ll all simply blame it on Bush. Don’t think for a second they won’t.

Fair enough.

Altho, I think you and many here may be overlooking how many socialists are in the Gop these days as well, jmo.

When the GoP bellies up, it can thank folks like McCain and his lackeys for inflicting the final wounds.

The goP (going Progre$$ive) party has an opportunity to reverse its course, but does it have the “common sense” to do so?

I used to listen to Genesis. I don't know how I missed that. My only excuse is that this election has me all twisted up. LOL

Oh well, maybe I'll throw myself a pity party tonight to see if I can get out of this funk I'm in.

I'm from Massachusetts. What do you think my vote is worth? I still plan to vote, but it's pretty much a meaningless exercise.

Call me insanely positive whenever I go to our polling place. :)

I take exception to your nasty post to Jim. Haranguing a convalescing man is just low.

You don’t like this website “torpedoing” leftist RINOs. You want it stopped. Sounds like lockstep to me.

I will NOT vote for McCain. I despise him. I don’t have a shred of respect for him AND I think he’s insane. At least Dole was an honorable man.

He’s already said he doesn’t want or need conservatives, anyway. I guess I agree with him on one thing.

#1 - And you don't think John (McCain/Feingold) McCain won't do it?

#2 - And you don't think John (Amnesty for all) McCain won't do it

#1 and #2 - You think John (I'm the leader of the GOP) McCain with a Republican OR Democrat congress won't do it?

The Republicans will back him because they're supposed to.
The Democrats will back him because it will be what they would do anyway.

First, and most important, welcome back Jim.

If the Manchurian Candidate defies the odds and nominates a real conservative for VP (FDT, Sanford, Jindal, Coburn are the only possibilities that come to mind), I may consider pulling out the industrial strength clothespin for the head RINO.

Otherwise, I will write in John Galt for President before voting for conservative candidates down ballot.

I will be encouraging every conservative I know to do the same between now and November.

You had a big hand in making this McCain bed, and I think it’s time you slept in it.

What EXACTLY does that mean? What in the world did Jim have to do with McCain's bed?

You will notice that I say “next socialistic President” in my post, meaning EITHER Obama or McCain. This time around, it doesn’t matter who the next POTUS is because either one will be the same on most issues, and, with the next Congress possibly being a majority of socialists, if McCain is the next POTUS, then the next U.S. Senate will just end up voting against all of McCain’s conservative judicial appointees anyways. Also, if the next Congress is a socialistic majority, then they will also vote against President McCain on all War on Terror issues as well as override all of McCain’s vetoes. Truly making the next Congress as conservative as it could possibly be is the most important thing for all “non-leftist voters” to do on November 4.

You truly believe that McCain will try to appoint conservative judges?
If so I think you better take a look at his statements again.

Also, if the next Congress is a socialistic majority, then they will also vote against President McCain on all War on Terror issues as well as override all of McCain’s vetoes.

The same way they did with President Bush?THIS congress has a socialistic majority, counting RINOs and left leaning Rs like McCain.
As far as the WOT goes, nothing will change in the short term no matter WHO gets elected.

I'll tell you something. One of my political hot buttons is Hillary Clinton. I have deviled her, The tale of the Double Devil FReep , I have tried my best to shut her down HARD.

May G*d forgive me because FReepers won't, I almost hope Hillary wins the election.
At least SOME of the Rs might grow a spine and push back. In addition, the Clinton's have made enough enemies within the Democrats that they might have trouble there too.

Hope that you are feeling better, Jim!

And thanks so much for asking the question.

Neither.

Probably will vote Bob Barr, not because I want him personally as a president, but because his values are closer to mine and I want my Conservative vote to count as “a Conservative vote”, not just as “a RINO” vote.

Glad that you asked the question in the way you did, because I just can’t stomach McCain — and thought that it might mean I got the FR boot because of it.

I’ll vote John McCain, but not out of love or support for the Republican Party. Sadly, I think as of this point in time that Obama has the momentum. Too many stupid people willing to throw their freedom away for the promised comfort of a nanny state.

Welcome back. Been hoping you’ve been getting better.

Well, I’ve had Senator McCain as a senator for many years, met him a couple times. Wouldn’t hesitate to loan him a twenty, and wouldn’t kick him out of a backyard barbeque if he crashed it.

But because he’s wrong on the border, he can’t have my vote. Since AZ is his anyways, I’m just going to vote for congressional races and leave the presidential race to those able to hold their noses enough. I just can’t give him my vote - it’s a precious thing, you know, and his positions have made him not deserving of it.

It’s my choice, it’s my vote, and I judge that he’s not worthy of it.

Sorry. Hope he wins, but would have preferred a conservative to vote for.

Which reminds me: Does anyone know if it’s illegal in California to vote while intoxicated?

Another important question : what's the best drink for the occasion? A cheap rotgut - something befitting the task? Any ideas?

I was thinking about brewing up a braggot, but with extra hops to remind me of McCain’s bitter personality. The sweetness of the honey should help me to choke down my vote as well.

Or, since it is McCain we’re talking about here, tequila shooters might be appropriate; maybe chase ‘em with a Mexican lager.

Perhaps Modern Drunkard Magazine will have a few suggestions in the coming months.
