No, the irony is that I am still practicing democracy. My candidate may not be elected, but my vote is legitimate, and I will see its percentage
polled. You can't say the same for yourself.
Not to mention all this bull about a write-in vote is idiocy, purely for the fact that if RP supporters came together on another candidate, it DOES
have the possibility to sway some REAL numbers.
It comes down to the fact you throw away your vote into thin air, while I throw my vote to something still relevant. And anyone else can do the same.
Your vote for a third party candidate right now is about as relevant as yesterdays news.
RP supporters arent sheep.
Your lost vote= because you thought you had to.
My lost vote= because I am making a stand and saying enough is enough.
how about this...how about we both lose our votes on totally different people?
..wait thats already happening....so why are you calling people names? Look in the mirror.
- I know many people in this country think that Election season is just one big game...but to me its not.
Not anymore. Not this time. I have been around politics and talked more about politics than I like to admit sometimes, but the fact is most people
just dont care.
They think that they HAVE to vote for someone because if they dont- the 'other' guy will get in. It is a crock.
If that candidate didnt already have enough votes to win it without mine, than he was already doomed:::ahem McCain::
But if I change that up and say "HEY...NO!...I WILL NOT!"..that changes everything...now THEY have to convince me....and they still cant.
....try putting a gun to my head.....that MAY help.
As long as I keep speaking about what I think is the best for this country...than it may catch on and it may effect other things... like what people
want in their legislation..exposing them to things they didnt understand which can drastically change their POV....talking about how everything I
believe is something I take seriously and for what reasons...
Thats how you change things in this country...by pointing it out and exposing it, and never giving up.
Not being a lap dog for some fool you hardly even know or put that much investment into.
Only FOOLS do that.
Then you sit there for the next 4 years feeling like crap cause you didnt do enough to make the right choices.
I believe in sound money..I believe in less government..I believe in less handouts and bailouts...I believe in staying out of other peoples
buisness...I believe in keeping the corporations at equal playing feilds with the rest of the small buisnesses.....
...but they dont.
I dont believe in monopoly...I dont believe in continuing ANY of the wars...I dont believe increasing the debt ...I dont believe the FED should have
...but they do.
....tell me what other candidate has my best interests at heart besides RP?
