Would you rather vote for Obama?

Will you vote for the lesser of two evils this November, or will you vote for a patriot?

A lot of people would ‘rather vote for Obama’ than vote for Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney. And to be honest, I can’t blame them. Newt Gingrich is a globalist and is typical of the corrupt political establishment and Mitt Romney is practically a mirror image of Obama, and may as well be a liberal himself.

The only problem is that voting for the lesser of two evils (no matter if you choose Obama or one of the other two) is still evil.

Does Newt or Mitt portray fiscal conservative values? Do they have a track record to prove it?

Does Obama show a good record of this? That is a silly question since he has doubled the national debt in only three years, but it must be asked since you will have to ask yourself that when you vote.

I have decided to vote for Ron Paul, no matter if he wins the Republican nomination or not. Whether he runs as an independent or I have to write his name in. There are thousands, if not millions who will do so if it comes to it.

A real patriot does not vote for the less of two evils.

To vote for Gingrich or Romney, just to get rid of Obama, will not fix the fundamental flaws this country is currently experiencing. At least with Obama, you know he is an enemy of the constitution. With Gingrich and Romney you get a lot of rhetoric and talking points, but just like George W Bush, you still get the patriot act and other anti-constitutional bills which erode away at the Republic.

You must choose where you stand. Are you a sunny day patriot? Will you vote simply to remove one tyrant from power, just to replace him with another? Will you replace one snake with another snake in sheep’s clothing?

THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.

And for all those holding off on voting for Ron Paul in the primaries because you have been led to believe that he has a dangerous foreign policy. I will show you tomorrow; why I think he actually has the best foreign policy, and why I think he is our last chance to save the Republic.

Your vote matters, but what matters more is standing for principles. Without principles we are nothing. Our Republic is founded upon beliefs and principles. We must stand for them, even if current tyrants hold power.

The current left/right, liberal/conservative genre is used to divide and conquer us. The last major landslide victory in an election was by Ronald Reagan because he spoke to the middle. Both liberals and conservatives alike loved him because he spoke to the common man, because he spoke of liberty for all.

I do not believe that Newt or Mitt could beat Obama, and even if they did, it would be a shallow victory. Has the Overton Window really shifted so far that we would vote a flip flop liberal conservative or a corrupt political establishment 3 time married fraud into the white house? I think not, I think people would rather vote for Obama. And that is indeed sad.

The lesser of two evils is not good enough anymore, it never was, and now it is more important than ever to stand on principles, no matter what the outcome.

As of right now, Ron Paul is still in the race to become the Republican nominee. It is my sincere hope that he succeeds. If he were to run as an independent and split the vote, and not win the overall election, at least he would cut the power down on both sides, and show the nation that independence is more important than simply picking a side. The Tea Party movement is growing, and more and more people are re-discovering the constitution and voting in ways that represent a smaller and more accountable government.

Liberty will prevail if enough people stick to the cause and see it through, no matter how hard the times ahead.

O! say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

  1. A vote for Paul requires a courage that people do not have in them. We are a culture of cattle who do what the farmer tells us to. Until we free ourselves of this tendency, the majority of Americans will vote for the political machine because they think that’s where their food comes from.

    1. I think a lot of people want to be free by nature in the sense that they want to be left alone. There are more and more people waking up to the government breathing down their neck and having their grubby hands in their pockets, and they are starting to get fed up with it.

      Luckily for us, these next five months are the primaries, and only the politically awake participate in them. So that gives us a great advantage, and a chance to wake up our fellow freedom lovers and have them get the message out about Ron Paul.

      Like I’ve said before, Ron would crush Obama in a one to one. We just have to make sure we can get him in the ring. After that it won’t matter what farm you’re on.

  2. I used to say that the Presidential vote was unfortunately a popularity contest. While this is still true, there are now two more factors at play. One is the trend in this nation toward becoming an “entitlement state”. In a country where 47% of he population (the “poor”, not the “rich”) pay zero income taxes, the unfortunate result is for those citizens is to vote for the candidate who will give them more “stuff”. The second factor (which raios host Neal Boortz calls the “800 pound gorilla in the voting booth) is the dumbing down of America through our government-run schools. The end result is that it is going to be extremely difficult to ever elect another conservative.

    I fear the only answer is a “Battlestar Galactica (the recent series)” style total “reboot” of our country, and perhaps global society. Electing Ron Paul would be great, and I’ll be voting for him, but I fear one man cannot make a difference in this Republic anymore. The corruption and “machine” is too large. Even Neo could not bring down the Machines. Could you see Ron Paul doing what is necessary and abolishing the Department of Education, the Department of Labor, and a dozen other departments that are crushing America? I fear that much like an alcoholic, America will have to hit “rock bottom” before we come out of this.

    As always, my favorite three words apply: “Read Alas Shrugged”.

    1. Yes, it appears that the presidential race has become more and more like ‘American Idol’ instead of about ideas and problem solving.

      Unfortunately for us, America is almost at rock bottom. I just hope that we can pull through the mess in the next election cycle if Ron does not win the nomination this time.

      We are fortunate to have Tea Parties and groups that are trying to restore value, and cut taxes and wasteful spending. But like you said, more people do need to read Atlas Shrugged; because it is already happening.

  3. I simply want to mention I’m newbie to blogs and really liked your blog. Almost certainly I’m going to bookmark your website . You really come with fabulous article content. Regards for sharing with us your web page.
