Vote for the R.
As a libertarian, nothing would thrill me more than having a whole bunch of L’s on the ballot. But that’s not where we are today. Today we have a bunch of D’s on the ballot who need to be defeated, not because they are bad people but because they espouse bad policy. And those of us L’s who say we need to vote our conscience will do nothing but allow that bad policy to flourish.
You heard me – pull the lever for the L and guess what you've done? Taken a vote from an R and made it more likely the D will win.
This election isn't about voting for or against a particular candidate as much as it is voting for or against an ideology. And the R’s won’t move as quickly toward leftism as the D’s.
Yes, that’s a lousy attitude and yes, I wish I had more hope. But I don’t. So for now, I’m going to vote for the party that stands for less government intrusion. Remember: not a single R voted for the Affordable Care Act. And if there hadn't been so many D’s in Congress at the time, perhaps it’s wouldn't have passed.
