    The value of my soul is priceless. I cannot and will not support any candidate who is in favor of SSM, regardless of anything else.

    Re: Would You Vote Against Your Conscience For A Better Economy?

    I always stand on the side of liberty and freedom first. Money is important but I believe too much weight is given to the politician in regards to their influence of the overall economy. I no more put ALL the blame on President Bush for the current fiasco anymore than I blame Obama for his inability to make the repairs and restore the land back to milk and honey. I tend to look behind the curtain.

    Money woes come and go regardless of the administrations. But a freedom granted is a monumental achievement for us as a people. Also, a freedom that is lost is hard to ever reclaim.

    But, I think the near future elections will enable you to kill two birds with one stone.

    If you vote for the candidate that suits your views towards liberty and justice for all, most likely he will not belong to the party that is hugely responsible for the economic mess we're in to begin with. And he will most likely be someone willing to help President Obama, (the next president) achieve the goals the voting public elected him to achieve. Your vote could help end the filibuster of government and clear the obstructions currently holding us hostage.

    Vote your conscience. It will tell you who you are and what you should do.

    I would vote for someone against SSM if it meant a better economy. The economy will be the real issue in this election. I would have a hard time crippling the economy and causing everyone to suffer over one social issue.

    most of the anti-gay candidates push failed trickle down economic policy anyway, so i don't have to worry about making that choice.

    Leaving the morality of same sex marriage aside for a moment... what does it have to do with your soul? In what fashion are you corrupted merely by living in a society that tolerates what you consider wrong?

    If it becomes legal, will you then only be allowed to vote for candidates that support repealing it? Or, if there are no candidates in favor of repealing it... what then? What are the consequences for your soul to living in a society which permits same sex marriage?

    I would vote for Ron Paul so I could have both civil rights and sound economic policy.

    I'm much too conscientious to vote against the economy for the sake of social issues.

    For those of you who never vote against your conscience, have you ever voted for a candidate you agreed with 100%?

    No. Why do you ask?
