I have heard about a number of early voters in multiple states (Illinois and Maryland so far) using voting machines that automatically changed their vote from Republicant to Democrap. Although I feel it is a duty to go vote, If the system is rigged to this degree (blatantly obvious!) what’s the point? Well, while we have the ability, you need to go vote. Do I think it will make a difference? I don’t know (at least a large third party turnout might cause some concern). Do you have the right to talk shit if you don’t go vote? NOT AT ALL! It’s just like training. If you don’t put in the effort yourself, you have no right to criticize those that do, or the type of training they are doing. Be a Do’er, not a Talker.
Here’s two things I wrote two years ago, that are just as valid to think about for this election. Are you a “Lesser of two evils” voter, or are you someone that votes on your convictions and principles? Obviously this is dated material, so you need to fill in the blank, when judging the candidates who you can vote for. I don’t vote for a person because they happen to have an (R) in their title (I’m registered “Constitution” party). I vote for a person, because they espouse the same beliefs, guiding principles, and goals that I do. Most of the problems we have now can be placed at the feet of the apathetic, uneducated (politically), and/or “Party line” voter.
Election Time, Hitler VS Stalin
14 Oct, 2012
Less than a month away from the Hitler vs Stalin election. Not a fair comparison you say. Well all I keep hearing is that Romney is “The lesser of two evils”. What that tells me is, those that feel that way would vote for Hitler over Stalin, every time. Yup it’s true, you’d vote for Hitler, here’s why. Hitler only killed about 11,000,000 people to Stalin’s 20,000,000+, so that means he’s the lesser of two evils, right? Hitler’s national socialism promoted german patriotism (Don’t forget, a cry for patriotism is how the patriot act got passed.), as opposed to Stalin’s communism promoting solidarity with class/workers all over the world (not unlike obama). Both candidates agree with, and have implemented a universal healthcare program, right? Both candidates agree with banning guns, but only one has done it, ROMNEY! Romney believes in using government regulation to force people to comply with.
“Mr. Romney has propounded the benefits of expanding and enforcing regulations, including the minimum wage and environmental laws. He has argued that government spending, including public investments in private companies, can stimulate the economy and create jobs. And he has advocated tax penalties to shape public behavior, as in his successful campaign to penalize Massachusetts residents who do not obtain health insurance. In recent years he has modified or abandoned some of these positions as he courted Republican support.” NY Times Aug 27, 2012.
“WHEN Mitt Romney was governor of liberal Massachusetts, he supported abortion, gun control, tackling climate change and a requirement that everyone should buy health insurance, backed up with generous subsidies for those who could not afford it.” The Economist Aug 25, 2012
So let’s talk about his abortion position, what do you think of this?
During an unsuccessful Senate bid in 1994, Romney said: “I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. I have since the time that my mom took that position when she ran in 1970 as a U.S. Senate candidate. I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years we should sustain and support it.”

When asked during his 1994 Senate campaign about his position on emergency
contraception (also known as the “morning-after” pill), Romney said: “I don’t really
understand how it works or when it works but my understanding is that it is an effective
morning-after pill and I think it would be a positive thing to have women have the choice of the taking morning-after pill…. I would favor having it available.”

So go ahead and tell me about your “conservative” candidate now, wait, don’t tell me, his views have evolved, right? If you people are foolish enough to believe a candidate doesn’t change his stripes to be polically expedient, your fools. This guys is Obama’s guts’ with a different publicist. He is an ANTI GUN, PRO CHOICE, PRO UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE, BIG GOVERNMENT, LIBERAL WOLF in a sheepdog’s clothing. He sure as hell isn’t a sheepdog, just read what he’s done, to know where you’re going sheep.
No matter what anyone tells you, casting your vote for a third party candidate, for reasons of principle, is not throwing your vote away. When all they give you as primary choices are Hitler or Stalin, third party is the clear choice.

I’ve been hearin’ an awful lot of the “Your throwin’ away your vote” mantra lately, so I figured for the sake of the less enlightened, I would spell out my position and that of many others, so there is NO misunderstanding. I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE TO VOTE FOR ROMNEY! Yep, I said it, and here is why.
1.T o be able to freely exercise your rights, you must have at your disposal an efficient means to thwart those who don’t believe you should be able to exercise those rights. In other words, a firearm. Mr. Romney has done more to inhibit law abiding citizens from attaining efficient means of self protection, than BooHOo has. He signed legislation as Gov of Mass that banned semi automatic firearms. He said “I believe the people should have the right to bear arms, but I don’t believe that we have to have assault weapons as part of our personal arsenal,” I don’t care if the NRA endorses him, they’ve been playin’ games with politicians for God knows how long, and Romney only joined the NRA in 2006, because he was running in 2008. He’s changed his position on firearms now, you say. Yeah, I bet he has, but actions speak louder than words my friend.
2.Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t BooHOo use ROMNEYCARE as the template for OBAMACARE? Why would I want to vote for the grandfather of obamacare, really, one good reason. Well, Ol’ Romney is gonna sign an executive order on his first day in office to repeal it, good for him. But wait, there’s more. Then he’s gonna come up with something better, and all this from the grandfather of obamacare. Yes, I know he’s gonna “work with the states” to draft their own Romneycare, AWESOME for us, huh? Well, at least the SCROTUS probably won’t get in his way, they’re to busy worrying about their “Legacy”. In the end, biggest of many issues in obamacare is the unconstitutionality of the individual mandate, and Romney had it in romneycare, and wants it for the rest of the country. What does that tell you?
There it is, my main reasons for not voting for Romney/Ryan. Only two you say, well I voted for Perot on ’92 because Bush said “no new taxes”, and was supposedly pro gun, till he passed one of the biggest gun control laws, prior to AWB ’94, and it concerned semi auto’s to. I took the route the lemmings took last election, and voted for McCain, even though it turned my stomach. He would have gotten us to the same point obama did, just slower due to need of a walker. I vowed after the last election that I would never compromise my principles again, to help a perceived need, and I will stick to that vow.
The republicans think they can throw up (REGURGITATE) any candidate, and if he is perceived to be slightly less draconian than the opposition, that we will have to vote for him. Guess what, I DON’T! If the Repubs want my vote from now on, they will have to EARN IT! I’m a member of the Constitution Party, so Goode/Clymerhttp://www.goodeforpresident2012.com/ is where my vote is going. I know, “I’m throwing away my vote”.,Not at all. One, it’s my vote, and unless I don’t use my vote, it does matter. Two, I’ve actually EARNED MY RIGHT TO VOTE, can you say the same? Most of you have been given that right, and never had to do anything for it. I’m fine with that, but never preach to a combat veteran about how to use his vote unless he asks your advice/opinion, you don’t have the right! Principles/Convictions are funny things. Alot of the time, they get in the way. Make no mistake, the more you compromise them, the more your character is also compromised, no matter what excuse you make. This election is about Principles more than any I’ve ever seen. Are you willing to take the chance of suffering and heartache like the Founding Fathers did, to prove you have guiding principles you live by? In the end, that’s what PRINCIPLES are all about, doin’ the hard thing, when everyone around you wants to take the easier, less ethical/moral route. Ask Neville Chamberlain about compromise, can you say “Peace in our time.”
