Can one morally vote for the lesser of two evils? In a word, no. A basic principle of Judeo-Christian teaching and of the natural law to which the country was married by the Declaration of Independence is that one may not knowingly do evil that good may come of it.

So, is a vote for [a third party] or no vote at all wasted? I reject the idea that a principled vote is wasted. Your vote is yours, and so long as your vote is consistent with your conscience, it is impossible to waste your vote. – Judge Napolitano

BUT BUT…that means you support Obama!!

In all seriousness, good job.

The only wasted vote is a vote for someone or something you don’t believe in.


#3

I cast my vote as well. After much deliberation and inner dialogue I ultimately decided to say NO to Socialism, NO to Progressivism, NO to Universal Healthcare, NO to taxpayer funded abortions, NO to the radical Homosexual agenda and NO to four more years of the same.

I voted for Gary Johnson.

"I’m President Barak Obama and I approved this message. "

:frowning:


#5

WAIT A SECOND!!! I though if you voted for anyone other than Romney that you were voting for Obama. Tell me why Obama’s name does not have a “check” by it also?


#6

Gary Johnson supports abortion “rights” and homosexual “marriage.” Those are two of the main reasons I could not support him.


#7

While I disagree with him socially it is his economic viewpoints that I admire.(main reason I cannot support Romney) A fusion of Johnson’s economic views and Romney’s social views would have been the perfect choice for me.


#8

So you want Johnson to one day support abortion, then the next day be opposed to it, then be for it in some cases?


#9

So does Ron Paul but you voted for him.


#10

Ron Paul is pro-life and believes marriage is between one man and one woman and wants it returned to it’s proper place: the Church.

I suggest you read his short book: Abortion and Liberty


#11

and personal beliefs have nothing to do with govt policy. In Ron Paul’s America every woman could get an abortion and every gay could be married in a church


#12

Cool, it’s good to see independents who act on their convictions.


#13

No, he believes that the unborn have a right to life protected by the Constitution. That’s why he’s introduced the Sanctity of Life Act which would define personhood as beginning at conception and remove federal court jurisdiction from abortion issues, thereby nullifying Roe v Wade with a simple majority in Congress.

With regards to marriage, why do you want government involved? Marriage is a religious sacrament between one man, one woman, and God.

Oh and currently gays can get “married” in some “churches” that allow it.


#14

and there are other times he claims it should be a state level choice

With regards to marriage, why do you want government involved? Marriage is a religious sacrament between one man, one woman, and God.

Marriage is a God given right that must be protected by the govt just like all our other rights. Free speech, guns, ect


#15

No, he’s said that the unborn have a right to life, but that abortion, like virtually all violent crimes, should be prosecuted at the state level, as per the Constitution.

No, it is a right that must not be infringed on by government.


#16

Just as suspected, the Soros employees invade the thread. Didn’t take as long as I figured it would, either.


#17

“I consider it a state-level responsibility to restrain violence against any human being. I disagree with the nationalization of the issue”

No, it is a right that must not be infringed on by government.

So protecting a right is infringing on it? I hate those shackles of the 1st amendment maybe one day when the paulbots rule the world they can unchain us from that burden.


#18

How is murder handled? It’s handled at the state level. If you kill someone, you are arrested by local/state police and tried in a state court.

Stop distorting things.

What does the 1st amendment say? “Congress shall make no law…”

And “Paulbots” fully support the 1st Amendments from government intrusion into our right to free speech, assembly, and exercise of religion.


#19

Murder is also a federal crime. No state could make a law making murder legal.

What does the 1st amendment say? “Congress shall make no law…”

And “Paulbots” fully support the 1st Amendments from government intrusion into our right to free speech, assembly, and exercise of religion.

You have made it clear that you think the 1st amendment infringes on free speech, by claiming that a marriage amendment would infringe on marriage


#20

99% of murders are covered under state law.

Did I say otherwise?

When did I say that? I said that marriage is a religious sacrament between one man, one woman, and God. I don’t believe the government should be involved. I never said anything about the 1st amendment…
