I'm Not Wasting My Vote This Election!

"Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost." John Quincy Adams

I wasted my vote in 2004. I am ashamed to admit it, but I voted for Bush last time around. Actually, to be more precise, I voted against Kerry. I learned something very important as a result.

Don't compromise your principles!

I did! I guess I got what I paid for.

I won't make that mistake again. That's why I am voting for Chuck Baldwin.

Here is an exerpt from an article by Chuck Baldwin that sums up my feeling rather nicely.

[A] wasted vote is a vote for someone you know does not represent your own beliefs and principles. A wasted vote is a vote for someone you know will not lead the country in the way it should go. A wasted vote is a vote for the "lesser of two evils." Or, in the case of John McCain and Barack Obama, what we have is a choice between the "evil of two lessers."

Albert Einstein is credited with saying that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result. For years now, Republicans and Democrats have been leading the country in the same basic direction: toward bigger and bigger government; more and more socialism, globalism, corporatism, and foreign interventionism; and the dismantling of constitutional liberties. Yet, voters continue to think that they are voting for "change" when they vote for a Republican or Democrat. This is truly insane!

Don't waste your vote on Obama or MaCain. Go vote for Chuck Balwin on November 4th.

In addition to convincing people to vote their conscience,we need to convince people to not vote if they haven't bothered to learn about the issues and the candidates. It must be made clear that if one's knowledge is based on commercials and other popular sources, then one has no usable knowledge on the matter. It is important for people to leave the voting to those who could be bothered to do the homework.
