We heard this in 2008 too from the “moderates”. Vote for McCain you worthless ingrates so that after our “reach across the aisle” maverick wins we can throw you conservatives back in the closet where you belong. How about you do things our way for a change? It seemed to work out well in 1980.
I voted for Reagan. I voted for Goldwater. I voted for Nixon, GHW, GW, and McCain. Never voted for a third party. I believe in the two party system.
