    Re: Third-Party Candidates: Worth Your Vote?

    I would never consider a third-party candidate for President, though I thoroughly encourage Green Party and other Leftist candidates.
    I would never vote for a Lib, Democrat... same thing.
    I would consider not voting for a Republican.

    Same goes for Senators and Congressman.

    After that, I'll vote for someone that is Conservative, regardless of party.
    Libertarian would be attractive.

    It's a better use of your time to just become active in primary elections.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Oh, I didn't mean vote for a liberal Republican. There are the few that still believe in the Republic, you know. There's no difference between a liberal Republican and a Democrat, they're both socialist traitors intent on the destruction of the Repubic.

    Can't help that. I'm all for doing two complete radical mastectomies to get rid of the tumors caused by both halfs of The Big Party. Since that ain't gonna happen, I figure that when push comes to shove it's necessary to get rid of the biggest titheads, and in this case that was Obama and the Democrats.

    That's better, vent it all out. It doesn't have to make any sense, so long as you feel better when it's over. Remember, there's tissues in a box on the table at the end of the couch.

    I voted to prevent the worst threat to the Republic ever seen in history from taking over the Oval Office.

    When you grow up you'll learn that sometimes it's necessary to hold your nose to do what must be done at the time, especially when all options lead to some harm somewhere.

    So you're saying that The Messiah and McCain were 100.0000% equal?

    What did you accomplish with your vote? Did anyone pay you any attention?

    I would be on-board with the Libertarian party if they would drop a couple of their liberal views, such as 100% immediate withdrawal from the ME, and legalized: prostitution, hard drugs (such as meth), and similar.

    I would even trade them the gay-marriage card for the school vouchers card.

    When you vote for a liberal republican like McCain,Guliani, Romney or some other liberal then you intentionally voted for a liberal republican. How are you going to bash liberals all day and then openly admit to voting for one just because he has a "R" next to his name? You say one thing and do another. "Liberals suck,liberals are going to destroy the country, ****en liberals, Hey I am going to vote for McCain because a "R" is much better than a "D".

    That's better, vent it all out. It doesn't have to make any sense, so long as you feel better when it's over. Remember, there's tissues in a box on the table at the end of the couch.

    How are you going to accuse anyone of being immature when you have the republican good democrat evil mentality just like all the other fools who run to the polls and vote straight party ticket? Perhaps when you grow up you will realize that is the kind of mentality that got the democrat party where they are now and are getting the republicans on that same boat. Uneducated voters have the "one party is evil and their party can do not wrong" mentality.


    So you're saying that The Messiah and McCain were 100.0000% equal?
    the "0000" after that period are meaningless. Wasn't McCain running around calling Obama a socialist while supporting bailouts?

    When you are running around calling Obama The Messiah you only make yourself look like one of the Bush stole the elections, Bush Lied, Obama is really a Kenyan or some other nutjob.


    What did you accomplish with your vote? Did anyone pay you any attention?
    I along with everyone else who refused to vote for liberal republican helped delayed the further liberalization of the republican party.Politicians just like children and pets will think bad behavior is acceptable if you reward them for it. Perhaps one day people will wake up and a 3rd party candidate will win.

    Re: Third-Party Candidates: Worth Your Vote?

    Mc.Cain would have been easer to controle, that's why I supported him over Obama.

    But yes, they're both liberals.

    Actually, I intentionally voted against The Messiah, hoping that since Proposition 8 was so close to passing that the RINO had a slight chance of winning. How was I to know that so many Messiah supporters were such complete bigots? (Actually, I did know that, I just didn't know they hated queers, too)

    Easy. Watch this:

    Liberals suck the wrong end of the alimentary canal.

    Liberals are traitors.

    Liberals like being slaves.

    I can do this all day, really.

    That doesn't mean we would not have been better served if we'd managed to dump The Messiah.

    A vote is a strategica tool, I don't waste a lot of emotion on them. When California liberals wrongs forced open primaries on the state, I properly voted for all the Democrats I could find, so long as they were second tier Democrats who couldn't win an election otherwise.

    Because I have the mentality that knows how to use words to elicit irrational emotional responses from irrational emotional liberals as well as irrational emotion third party voters who think a single vote makes a difference anywhere.

    See? I wasn't the only one to notice that The Messiah was a socialist.

    Got any proof that The Messiah isn't a Kenyan national? Then you're the only one.

    You did? Amazing. How's that working out for you so far?

    Seems to me that what you're saying is that if I, myself, didn't vote for Bush, we'd be in the promised land already, without The Messiah, even.

    I see you never bothered to study the impact third parties have had on the United States.

    Re: Third-Party Candidates: Worth Your Vote?

    I'm still registered as a Repub; in the primaries I vote for the actual conservative or conservative/libertarian candidates.

    In general elections, I'll vote for a Republican IF he is an actual conservative, or conservative/libertarian. If he's just a RINO, I'll vote Constitution Party, or maybe Libertarian.

    When I vote 3rd party, I know full well the guy won't win. It's a protest against a R party that has increasingly forgotten it's base.
