Splitting the vote

The Republican National Convention was a complete disgrace. As I mentioned in my previous article, the establishment just took a huge power grab, and stomped all over the grassroots movements.

Chris Littleton nails it with his article ‘The GOP can because you’ll take it’ Please click on the link and take a few minutes to read it.

The time for party pandering is over. On the national scale, we must show the establishment on both sides who’s boss.

Think about it, if 1/3 of the republicans vote libertarian, and 1/3 of the liberals vote libertarian, we’ll have  a majority to get Obama out of office, and prevent his twin Romney from getting in too.

What many don’t understand is, though Obama is a terrible president, he is not much different than Bush. Both voted for liberty stripping bills such as the Patriot act and NDAA, both passed stimulus, and both ran up the deficit. Mitt Romney is no different either. And although many call Obama a socialist and many other names under the sun, what many don’t realize is that Mitt Romney would have even more power over us than Obama, and wouldn’t do much, if anything to change his policies.

Ask yourself this; ‘What is the motivation of our current presidential candidates for office? For liberty and freedom? Or for more power, wealth and control?’

So which is better? Having a National Socialist or a Soviet Socialist as president?

I say neither.

Many argue that we shouldn’t split the vote, but I ask the question ‘which vote?’

I think we should split the tyranny of the big government Obama/Romney ticket and vote for Gary Johnson.

There are enough disenfranchised voters on both sides of the political spectrum. What many on the right do not realize is that the liberals are not all ‘commies’ and ‘welfare whores’ but rather many of them voted for Obama because he campaigned as a centrist and promised to bring the troops home. When he gained office he simply continued on the same path of massive spending and warmongering as president Bush.

If you vote for Mitt Romney, you are no better than an Obama supporter because you are ignoring all the facts about Romney’s big liberal voting record. And to say that he was an entrepreneur is a joke. Romney’s business did not create jobs, he simply stripped assets and sent jobs over seas. Sure Obama never held a real job in his life, but the line between a looter and moocher is very thin.

It’s time to man up and send a clear message to Washington; the time for big government and good ol’ boy establishment politics is over.

I say we split the vote on both sides, and return to freedom!

Gary Johnson 2012!
