Voting Against instead of For

JB Williams at the Canadian Free Press writes a brilliant but easy-to-read piece called Meet the Anti-Candidates Nobody’s FOR Them!

It's a long read, so here's a few noteworthy quotes.

The fact is - most Americans would love to pull the lever for none-of-the-above! 50% of American voters have been pulling that lever for years now, having already thrown in the towel on elective self-governance by not voting at all. The other 50%, who still vote, cast their votes against the other candidates, not for any of the clearly under qualified misfits that now run for the highest office in the land.

McCain is the true liberal in the 2008 race for the White House. There is no true conservative in the race and the other two are pure progressive Marxists, not liberals.

Half of the country seeks an Americanized version of Marxism whereby the fed is given the authority to “take from the rich according to their ability” in order to “redistribute wealth according to the needs of well indoctrinated government dependents” who never fail to vote themselves gifts from the treasury.

Every vote will be a protest vote this fall. Every vote will be cast as an opposition vote against the other available options. He who is despised the least will become President of the United States for the next four years. God help us!

Please take the time to read the entire article. It says what I've been feeling for the last six months.

If so, how come other republican candidates lost to McCain during primaries? JB Williams predicted that more than 40% of republicans would support Fred Thompson! :) So much for his smartness!

What is your point?

Early on in the Republican primary process Democrats and Independents crossed over and voted McCain. Republicans ended up with McCain because of Democrat VoteFoolery. Now they're crying fowl because angry Republicans are doing the same to the Democratic nomination process.

That's why we have John McCain. And that's why the Right is giving back a little dose of the Left's own medicine.

Democrats wanted to run against McCain so they tweaked the process in their favor. "Operation Chaos" is just political quid pro quo.

The Chaos being sowed by the Right isn't an effort to choose the Democratic nominee [as was the Left's intention during the Republican primaries] the Right most wants to face in November. From the Republican point of view BOTH Hill and B are evil choices. Both are fundamentally and morally flawed. The purpose therefore has been to bloody them both and, hopefully, make them BOTH unelectable in the fall.

"Republicans ended up with McCain because of Democrat VoteFoolery."

I completely disagree, EL. I am convinced that it was the very pundits we have all respected in the past who enabled the GOP's current situation. By demonizing the best of the candidates, they marginalized the conservative component and Rockerfellerism prevailed.

I blame Rush.

Among others.

EL, Al-O, I think you are both right. Both actions contributed to the mess we are now in. Rush and Hannity were two of the biggest influences - not because they influenced anyone to choose Rudy, but because they left conservatives undecided and split on who to choose instead of Rudy.

What if they had both backed Thompson to begin with? Or Huckabee to begin with? I think this would be a totally different race if they had. This has shown us one of two things.

1. They have so much influence on conservatives that their choice of Rudy caused confusion


2. They have no influence at all.

As for Dems & Libs crossing party lines in an effort to skew the results, I don't doubt that for a moment - especially in Florida, where McCain suprised everyone by coming out on top. Up until Florida, he didn't seem to have a chance.

"As for Dems & Libs crossing party lines..."

The process is nothing new. I have crossed over on occasion in a group effort to eliminate certain state candidates from the Democrat ballot. It is commonplace for the Democrat voting-block in Arkansas to cross-over to influence the Republican primaries.

Happens all the time and is a legitimate way to influence the vote.

In Louisiana, you can't vote outside of your party. Independents can't vote at all. Only in the General Election.

"Up until Florida, he didn't seem to have a chance."

By Florida, our favorite big-headed pundits had destroyed the other candidates and McCain was the only one standing...propped up by the establishment elitists.

I have yet to hear anyone say they voted for McCain, of course I live in a liberal state dominated by senseless Democrats. Huckabee did well in my county. Mom2

At 1:45 PM, Blogger Hannah J said...

Prick up your ears then, Mom2. I would have voted for Thompson, except that he had dropped out by the time our primaries came around. My county nearly always goes to the Dems. Flay me if you like, but I voted for McCain.

At 4:18 PM, Blogger Ms.Green said...

Mom2, up until Hannah posted here, I had not met anyone who voted for McCain either. Hannah, I have no desire to flay you or anyone else who voted for or who is going to vote for McCain. He is the lessor of evils (though the degree to which he is lessor is argueable) Anyway, my pastor, knowing that I intend not to vote, pointed out to me that he believes if I don't vote for the lessor of two evils, I am indirectly voting for the greater of two evils. That gave me something to chew on anyway...

At 9:35 AM, Blogger Al-Ozarka said...

"...he believes if I don't vote for the lessor of two evils, I am indirectly voting for the greater of two evils."

How could he possibly know that?

Voting for the "lesser of two evils", Ms. Green, is still voting for evil.

You might want to offer that to your pastor.

I'm not doing it anymore. McCain will not get my vote.
